Bout of Books 20:
Day 4 challenge
If you like this, try that . . .
Put your recommendations hat on, #boutofbooks-ers. For this challenge, pick a book, author, or trope (or whatever!) from your TBR and suggest similar books.
As you would know if you are familiar with French literature in general, the French cannot be described as the most optimistic people in the world. If there’s a yes, there’s always a BUT shortly after. This reflects as well in this collection of Christmas short stories, which makes it quite unique! If you want something different for your next Christmas, ask Santa to bring you A Very French Christmas: The Greatest French Holiday Stories of All Time.
This is certainly the most unique book I have ever read, unique in premises and format. These qualities combined with the beauty of its content put The Madeleine Project among my favorite books read so far this year. New Vessel Press has definitely the knack for publishing great books!
