Paris in July

Paris in July, my favourite blogging event, hit me this year out of the blue. Normally, I think about it well in advance, planning what to do. Lately, I hardly had time to read all the blogs I am following and therefor I just realised yesterday that it has already started. It is once again hosted by Tamara at Thyme for TeaThank you for hosting Tamara. I know you are very busy for the time being.

So what will I do this year? Less ambitious than earlier years, due to my present schedule. I would like to write a few posts on our recent trip to Normandie. It was lovely and we travelled along the coast all the way down to St Malo. I would like to finish Nana by Emile Zola. I already started it last year, but never got around to finish it.

I actually bought a book a while ago, which I thought would be a good read for 'Paris in July'. It is a book called left Bank by Kate Muir. It is fictional but I am not able to figure out from the describing text at what time it takes place.

Listen to some French music, maybe finding out what is the most popular songs in France this year. Another option is watching a French film or TV-series. Maybe even fix a French dinner. Let's see what 'Paris in July' will bring.

Looking forward following your French goals for July.

  1. I think that is an excellent plan. I hope to read a book each day (though most will probably be picture books) and make a French dinner and share some photos. I love Paris in July.

    1. Sounds like a good variety. I don't think I can read a book a day, but a few connected to France will be fine with me. Bon appetit!

  2. Paris in July is a great event. I look forward to your post. After you finish Nana, try the prequel, The Drinking Shop. It is hilarious

  4. Lisbeth, Paris in July is one of my favorites, too. I'm so delighted you're participating and can't wait to hear more.

    And thanks for your lovely comment on my blog this week. I've been in the Land of Limited Internet and visiting time is at a premium but I'm trying to get caught up on blogs and comments!
