2013 Books on France Reading Challenge

January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013

In 2013, I plan to always have a book related to France on my currently-reading list. So in case you would like to read a few books related to France, here are the details:


Any book related to France:

  • it can be set in France,
  • written by a French author,
  • written in French (not Canadian French),
  • about a French theme: French cuisine (how the French influenced American cuisine is accepted for instance), French fashion, etc.

You can contact me if you are looking for titles. If you are a Goodreads member, you can access my France shelf.


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 them!
