celebrating france in a book. or eight.

eight new books have hit the stands.
eight new books that celebrate france & all its glory.
eight new books that every bookie-frenchie girl must read.

you must stroll over to vogue & read this write up on these books.
i am not sure which one i will pick up first.
but you can be certain that i will be reading them all.
paris, my sweet sounds delectably great.
but i am oh so fascinated by the life of jackie o.
so dreaming in french may have to be my number one read.

i am so tickled at the timing of this announcement, 
as i am actually just finishing up entre nous right now,
so i am in need of my next frenchie book.

if you are hoping for even more recommendations of great frenchie books,
i have also recently read lunch in paris.
i loved this because it was a love story that included all
sorts of divine french recipes.
how clever is that?

and it goes without saying parisian chic is a must read
for every girl who is enchanted with the chic styles of french women.

do you have a fave frenchie book?
