Top Ten Book Titles with Numbers In Them: French version

Top Ten Books Book
Titles with French Numbers In Them

TTT for September 14, 2021


Fun! I suggested this theme for #TopTenTuesday on October 1st, 2019, and I realize it’s back!
So to avoid featuring some of the same books, I’m going to do what I did two years ago (picking numbers 1-10), but in French this time!

I’m listing books that I have read, and that you probably not have heard about, for the most part.

I added the English cover when I know the book is available in English

Marguerite Duras won le prix Goncourt in 1984 (L’Amant).
