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!
