Since my fascination with everything French I’ve managed to grow my library with a little French section. Yes, I’m going through a French stage obsession and I love it.
I’ve read Lunch in Paris and French Women Don’t Get Fat, both with wonderful stories and full of great recipes. I read, Immovable Feast by John Baxter during the holiday season and it was very enjoyable. I didn’t want to finish reading it. John an Aussie marries a French woman and moves to Paris. He prepares Christmas dinner with ‘Pascual’. He tries to stuff Pascual in the stove but he doesn’t fit a little bending is needed. Dinner, drinks, family. A feast! Who would want to finish such a story? Thankfully, he wrote another book, We’ll Always Have Paris. I read the first few lines and it talks about having a ‘turning point’. I want a turning point too. I’m waiting patiently for that special something to change my life. The rest of the book was good too.
I just finished reading Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris. It’s a fiction book about making changes and finding inspiration.
My next read will be A Year in Provence by Peter Mayes.
What French inspired book have you read?
