It's time for Paris in July! This event, back for a 6th year, is hosted by Tamara at Thyme for Tea. Here is her quick overview:
The aim of the month is to celebrate our French experiences through reading, watching, listening, observing, cooking and eating all things French! There will be no rules or targets in terms of how much you need to do or complete in order to be a part of this experience – just blog about anything French or Paris, or Paris-like, and you can join in! Some ideas might include:Sounds like fun, right? I'm not exactly sure what will strike my fancy this month, but I've requested a couple of books from the library:
- reading a French themed book – fiction or non-fiction,
- watching a French movie,
- listening to French music,
- cooking French food,
- experiencing French, art, architecture and travel
Bonjour Tristesse by by Françoise Sagan
This book has been on my Paris in July list for a couple years, but Melissa's recent review prompted the library request.
Clementine in the Kitchen by Samuel V. Chamberlain
Part of the Modern Library Foods series, I learned about this from Audrey a couple of years ago. Glad to find a copy in our library system.
The Fortune of the Rougons (Les Rougon-Macquart #1) by Émile Zola
on my kindle and ready to go
That Part Was True by Deborah McKinlay
Looks like this could be a foodie version of 84, Charring Cross Road. I think part of it takes place in Paris.
