Behold the button for Paris in July, hosted by Tamara, which was created by Mel U. Marc Chagall is reason alone to participate in this event honoring all things French.
Tamara encourages us to cook French cuisine, watch French films, read French books, and I will listen to French jazz which I especially love on Spotify.
As for the literature…it is time to turn to my Penguin Little Black Classics:
Femme Fatale by Guy de Maupassant
A Simple Heart by Gustave Flaubert
The Atheist’s Heart by Honoré de Balzac
These are short little books, and should take me through July quite nicely, along with Stu who is hosting Spanish Lit Month for which I will be reading One Hundred Years of Solitude with him and others.
Do join us, in one event or both. Summer is made so lovely by these events I look forward to all year.
This could be a good nudge for me to read the copies of The Paris Review which piled up last year. Or is that cheating ?? 🙂
This is so wonderful, Bellezza! I’m so tempted to participate! Beautiful books you are planning to read! I love these black Penguin classics! They look so adorable! Happy reading! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
I’ll look forward to hearing more about french Jazz if you’re able to share what you’re listening to.
How perfect to read these three novels. They don’t seem to be that long either. A perfect way to enter into Paris in July! See you there.
Looking forward to your reviews, Bellezza! After a few years of absence in this summer blogging event, I’m back in Paris in July 2019!
