Bonjour mes amis! Aujourd’hui, je vais seulement parler en français… Just kidding! (Let’s not pretend I can actually speak French! I’d be surprised if I even got that right!)
Anyhoo- why am I feeling especially Francophilic today? Because I just went to Paris for a couple of days! Need proof? Here is a pic I took of the Eiffel Tower:
And here’s a spooky one of Notre Dame at night:
And because I’m feeling in the mood to talk about French books and it is a Wednesday, I thought I might try the WWW meme- but with a twist! (aka I will be bending the rules!)
If you’re not familiar with the meme, it is hosted by Taking On A World Of Words (SamAnnElizabeth) and we answer three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you just finish reading?
- What are you planning on reading next?
I will of course be tweaking these for my purposes!
What FRENCH BOOK are you currently reading?
Okay- I didn’t really need to change the question for this one, because among other things I am currently reading Le Petit Prince. And yes, I know it’s a children’s book that should take me no time at all, but I chose to read it in French- so I’m not done with it yet!
What was the last FRENCH BOOK you read?
I believe that was Les Mis- and no that was not in French- that would be wayyy too hard! (I mean see above- I’m at the “it’s hard to read children’s books” level)
What FRENCH BOOK are you planning on reading next?
After my trip I am super inspired to read Victor Hugo’s Hunchback of Notre Dame. It’s been sitting on my kindle for ages and now I feel like I should really pick it up already! Of course, as I’ve already said, I won’t be able to read it in French unfortunately, BUT that leads me onto the questions I have for *you*:
What French book would you suggest I read next? Do you know a book similar to Le Petit Prince that I might be able to try in French? And if you just like French books in translation- what can you recommend? Because I haven’t read nearly enough French books!!
