Paris in July 2013

Thanks to Tamara of Thyme for Tea and Karen of BookBath, there is another Paris in July for all of us to enjoy.

Yesterday, I read the first story in Paul Headrick’s The Doctrine of Affections, which is set in 19th-Century Paris.

It’s the perfect kind of story to launch an event like this.

It’s atmospheric and music-soaked…

and just long enough for the reader to feel fully immersed…

while whetting the appetite for more Paris stories.

Other possibilities in my stacks for this event?

Lauren B. Davis’ The Radiant City

Michele Roberts’ Playing Sardines

Michele Zackheim’s Violette’s Embrace

George Sand’s Horace

Kay Boyle’s My Next Bride

Anita Brookner’s Incidents in the rue Langiers

and Benjamin Constable’s The Three Lives of Tomomi Ishikawa

Other ideas? I like the sounds of the films that others are chatting about, and I might borrow a cookbook or two.

Meantime, a chocolate croissant? Or two. But I snarfed them both before I snapped a photo. Yum.

    Ooh, I love when you list books that I have never heard of before. And this time, it’s everything except the Anita Brookner.

    I like your outdoor reading nook!

      I think you would love Lauren B. Davis’ works; I haven’t read this one yet, but it’s calling to me loudly from the stack. (Not to suggest you wouldn’t like the others, but I should have mentioned Davis’ novels to you before.)

    I’m joining in too! I love that you added an Anita Brookner. Have fun.

      I’m tempted by the Brookner, but I’m also trying to read through her works in publication order because I binged on them in my teens and 20s and no longer recall which ones I’ve actually read, so I’m not sure yet…

Say something bookish, or just say 'hey'
