A New Reading Challenge... Books on France

A New Challenge

Inspired by Emma at Words and Peace and France Book Tours I've decided to join her Books on France Challenge.

So here's the specifics:

Any book related to France:
it can be set in France, written by a French author, written in French (not Canadian French), by authors from any country about a French theme: French cuisine (how the French influenced American cuisine is accepted for instance), French fashion, etc., it can be a book you read also for another challenge
You can contact me if you are looking for titles. 

All the genres are accepted:
  • nonfiction
  • fiction
  • historical fiction
  • mystery, etc
All medias are accepted:
  • paper
  • graphic (novel or non-fiction)
  • ebook
  • audiobook
LEVEL 1, “un peu” = 3 books (one per quarter for instance)
LEVEL 2, “beaucoup”= 6 books
LEVEL 3, “passionnément” = 12 books (one/month, for instance)
LEVEL 4, “à la folie”= 52 books (one/week, for instance)

Just an explanation on the 4 levels:

In France, we have a silly funny game:
when girls tell fortunes by pulling the petals off daisies, they say for instance,  il m’aime un peu, beaucoup, passionnément, à la folie. What comes up on the last petal is supposed to reveal to what degree the boyfriend loves a girl: a bit, a lot, passionately, or he is maddeningly in love with her!

My Goal:  LEVEL 3, “passionnément”
