Top Ten Books That Take Place in Paris



There you have it.
The ten best books set in Paris.

How about you?
Do you have suggestions for my list?




Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

  3. If you like mysteries, the Aimee Leduc mystery series by Cara Black all take place in Paris. My favorite is her first - Murder in the Marais.

  19. Haven't read any of these. Two books I'd add to my Paris list would be Die for Me and Revolution (at least I think they're both set in Paris). Great list though!

    Thanks for visiting my Top Ten.

  24. So many fabulous Paris books! I was worried that I wouldn't have read any at the start of the list. Thankfully I have! I've read a few, and want to read the rest. Hopefully we can add Zazie in the Metro to the list very shortly....

  25. Aaah, after my little sister visited Paris, and I read Anna, I'm rather enthralled by the city! I definitely want to visit it (and the French countryside).
    And I didn't know Madeline was a book! I used to watch the animation when I was little.
    Will definitely check these out.

  29. Revolt of the Angels by Anatole France I believe is set in Paris.

  30. I think Madeline is the one that started my love affair with this city when I was a child. Have you read any of Cara Black's mysteries-they all take place throughout Paris.

  31. I don't think I ever commented on this list but I love it! I've been reading a lot of books set in France lately as part of a reading challenge I'm participating in but prior to that I have enjoyed a number of titles you listed there (Suite Francaise, The Paris Wife, The Elegance of a Hedgehog, The Three Musketeers, Madeline (!!!))
