There is nothing like a good book on the beach. I am a little late this summer organizing a pile of books to read, but I finally got my Amazon order and am ready to go!
Not on purpose, but there seems to be a Paris theme in my book list.
A Paris Apartment depicts Paris of the Belle Epoque, an apartment in the ninth arrondissement that has been shuttered for 70 years with lots of treasures and a “sexy” Parisian on the scene. Tres Bien!
All The Light We Cannot See is set in Paris during World War II. Anthony Doerr took ten years to write this novel and won the Pulitzer Prize for it. Supposed to be amazing.
My summer book club book is the new Harper Lee Go Set a Watchman. With many of the same characters as To Kill a Mockingbird, this new book takes place 20 years later when Scout comes home to visit her father and all that ensues. Launch date, July 14th.
My Life in France is an attempt to get interested in cooking this summer….
It tells the story of Julia Child when she first arrives in France, her time at the Cordon Bleu and writing Mastering the Art of French Cooking. If it doesn’t get me interested in cooking, I know it will get me interested in a trip over the pond!
If Reese Witherspoon has already signed on to be in the movie version of this debut novel Luckiest Girl Alive, it should be good.
Last but not least, the wanderlust book. Without Reservations winds the reader through Paris, London and Italy…. One CAN live vicariously on the beach.
I am almost done with Primates of Park Avenue (admitting to reading it) and am excited to lie around on a beach towel and read all of these new books.
