In My Mailbox 36

meme hosted by The Story Siren

Welcome to the Paris Edition of In My Mailbox! These are all the lovelies I’ve received, purchased and borrowed as part of my trip and this blog event. Now, whether I get to reading and reviewing every single one is another story – but I’m sure gonna try and get through as many as I can! (It’s gonna be a jam-packed month of Parisian goodness!)

A HUGE thank you to Random House Canada, Harper Collins Canada, Raincoast Books and Simon & Schuster for their recommendations & input on which books to feature.
Most are new releases, upcoming releases or new-in-paperback.
(Be sure to check back for Waiting on Wednesdays for more recommendations!)

Lonely Planet’s Paris Encounter by Catherine Le Nevez; The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll & Mademoiselle Odile by James Reese; Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light by Amy Thomas;  April in Paris by Michael Wallner; Paris in Love by Eloisa James; Die For Me by Amy Plum; Sacré Bleu: A Comedy d’Art by Christopher Moore; The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose; The House I Loved by Tatiana de Rosnay

This next set of books are ones that I purchased just before deciding on my Paris month, or during the time leading up to April. They’re more a general interest/would like to read at some point – ranging from older titles to newer ones.  I already own several other books (ie. Da Vinci Code) from ages ago that I didn’t include in this listing since I didn’t purchase them recently. :)

A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay; Suite Francaise by Irène Némirovsky; The Paris Wife by Paula McLain; Bride of New France by Suzanne Desrochers; The Montmartre Investigation by Claude Izner; Paris Revealed by Stephen Clarke; Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly; I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk; The Alchemy of Murder by Carol McCleary ; Eyewitness Travel’s Top 10 Paris by Mike Gerrard & Donna Dailey; Les Petits Macarons by Kathryn Gordon

And then finally, these few books were leant to me by a few colleagues who had been to Paris before!

The Unofficial Guide to Paris by David Applefield; Authentik’s Artistik Paris by Natasha Edwards ; Authentik’s Chic Paris by Gérald Poirot
