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.

  1. Ooh nice twist on the topic!! I've never been to Paris, I wouldn't mind to some day if only because that's where Belle lived! Lol!

  2. In other words, just about anywhere in Paris!

    My TTT.

  4. What a creative way to answer the topic! I remember reading The Family Under the Bridge as a kid and feeling so bubbly after. And 1920s Paris is always so intriguing!

    1. I wonder why Family Under the Bridge isn't read more widely.

  8. Great selection of books! I love the view of rooftops from the Centre Pompidou museum dining room. You can see Notre Dame, Montmartre, Montparnasse, the Eiffel Tower, and more. But maybe it's not in a book. I'm with you in loving "Between Meals: An Appetite for Paris," and also I love "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas."

  9. I would love to read more set in Paris. Restaurants, bridges and rooftops (love that) are all evocative sounding locations, and nighttime Paris as well. :)

  11. Paris is on my bucket list and I think some of these are awesome like Pastry Shops, Subways, Gardens. The Cheese Factory and Cooking Studios sound too delicious to past.

  16. Thanks for your visiting my Top Ten Tuesday. What a great idea to put your favourite settings in Paris. I love that town.

    Did you know there is a tv series of Maigret with Rowan Atkinson?

    Greetings!

  17. I loved the Paris Wife as well. Thanks for sharing!

  18. The Family Under the Bridge is such a special book. Have had The Paris Wife since I got it from you, but have yet to read it. Liked both The Nightengale and All the Light We Cannot See, but it took me three tries to read the latter. When I made the conclusion, I celebrated! I liked The Little Paris Bookstore and The Little Paris Cafe as well--purely escape reading, but very entertaining.

  19. Gosh, you present such engaging Paris in July posts! Love this one too.... Bridges, Subways, cooking schools - anything could inspire a Paris based story couldn't it..
