I keep adding books related to France one way or another on my Goodreads TBR list, so I thought I would share the last 5 of them with you this week.

I purposely choose titles available in English, if you feel like checking them out at your local library for instance. In France, this is the literary season, with many literary awards, such as le Goncourt et le Renaudot, just awarded yesterday. Unfortunately, few books by these authors have been translated in English, and it’s hard to find a library having them in the US. Maybe easier in the UK and Canada. That’s why I focus on more accessible books.

Fiction:

The Cleaner of Chartres  A Place of Greater Safety The Summer of France

Nonfiction:

How the French Invented Love The Flaneur: A Stroll Through the Paradoxes of Paris

HAVE YOU READ ANY OF THESE?
DO THEY ATTRACT YOU? WHY?
AREN’T THE COVERS GORGEOUS?

WOULD YOU HAVE ANY FRENCH RECOMMENDATIONS?

Just a reminder guys:
If you link your own post on France,
please if possible
include the title of the book or topic in your link:
name of your blog (name of the book title or topic):
example : me @ myblog  (Camus)
Thanks!
