Happy, on the top of the world

My exams are over, I did good ( no, I did great, I'm on the top of the world right now!!!)
More time to read and go outside! My last reads :

On the left is a graphic novel about three girls and their families in the Ivory Coast during the last seventies, early eighties. It's awesome, fun, exciting, and the drawings are fabulous. My daughter and I loved the whole series (6 books) and felt like the characters were part of our lives for a few weeks!
On the right is a book written in 1968 and it was said on the cover it changed many people's lives at the time.
It didn't change mine, but it was still a good read, a bit boring, but in a good way, because I went on anyway and found a lot of things to like. After all, that was about the desert, and deserts are boring, too, but if you're patient, you can see wonders in them.
(You can see the books bigger by clicking on the picture, if you want to see the titles and authors).

And this is one of my orchideas. I wanted to draw the four of them in bloom, but this one took everything out of me and I decided to go back to my usual, fast, fun faces drawings...

 And that's it. Now I'm going to enjoy the fact that my exams are over and take a little break. Then back to work (I mean, homework after work...) because I still have a thesis to do and present before I get my full diploma. This means months of work with patients I need to find. But it's interesting and I look forward to doing it. I'm a student at heart, I guess.

The orchids are lovely and the faces fabulous. Glad to be introduced to your work!
Quick French refresher, if you please (mine is nearly 50 years out of date) -- what is the current, conversational meaning attached to "genial?" (sorry - don't remember how to insert accents).

Enjoyed looking at these sketches - I always love to see your drawings, especially the ones of your books. Glad your exams are done for now - lightens the burden a little!

Glad your exams are over and you did so well on them. Your books look good and sound good. I laugh at your description of the desert. It's true, it's a non-exciting landscape but few people live there so it makes my husband happy (I live in the Arizona Mojave Desert). You do have to be patient to see the changes but we actually have seasons if you take the time to notice the small changes.

Nice job on the faces too. I think your practice is paying off.
