When I travel, I always take books with me. The books I choose to take along on the trip are always books that are set in the place to which I am traveling.
Every summer I travel to Paris via my blog. I have now read many, many books set in Paris.
Some of the books take me straight into the world of Paris---its sights, its sounds, its aromas.
Here are my favorite novels that are evocative of Paris:
The Paris Wife
The 6:41 to Paris
Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris
The Elegance of the Hedgehog
In the Cafe of Lost Youth
All the Light We Cannot See
Lisette's Paris Notebook
Girl in Dior
Madame Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
Please join the weekly meme at An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.
