Paris in July Round-Up

So July is over and I've really enjoyed reading and watching something a bit different from normal. I haven't quite read everything I set out to but I will be reviewing Badfellas in the near future and I do need to do a post about the wonderful publishers of translated fiction that have provided books for review.



So what did I read?
Breaking Away by Anna Gavalda 5/5
The Breakers by Claudie Gallay 4/5
Monsieur Linh and His Child by Philippe Claudel 4/5
The Beast of the Camargue by Xavier-Marie Bonnot 3/5

I didn't make much of a dent in my French films but I will watch the rest when I need a film fix:
Tell No One | Priceless

Photography:
Le vin couple sophistiqués boire
The Photography of Stéphane Giner
Paris Fashions, 1912
Baroness de Guestre [in home]
Inauguration of Poincare, Paris

I also blogged about: Meet Hector | The Tarasque

Thanks to Mike Stimpson for the French Lego photos! I should have posted these two sooner but I think this one of him riding off into the sunset is fitting for the end...



Au revoir!
