And this is my last post on the 26 French books I have read so far this year.
Actually a lot of these I have listened to.

Read in June:
This volume is unique, because so far in the series, the story always took place in cold, rainy, greyish, and gloomy places.
This time we are in Southern France, and it is hot and sunny, on the very bright Riviera. I realize Simenon is just as good with that type of ambiance!
Le Horla et autres nouvelles
Each time I reread Maupassant (1850-1893), I’m amazed at the modernity of his writing, especially in the first short story, le Horla.
Le Crépuscule des fauves
A mystery about white hackers, with tons of scary details about alas not fictional corruption at the level of governments and banks, among other things.
Le Grand Meaulnes
Quintessentially French? All about ambiance.
And I just started the upcoming English translation of another book by Foenkinos:
