Paris In July 002

Only 11 days and we are off to Paris! I am so excited you would think I was actually jumping on a plane to Charles de Gaulle! In all of our planning for Paris in July it actually did escape my mind that my parents are flying there for real on the 29th June – jealous much?? I will try and contain my own green eyed monster and concentrate on all the delicious Paris themed fun we have lined up for July.

If you haven’t yet done so please pop over to this post and add your blog to our list of participants. We will be adding new Mr Linkys at the end of each week in July for you to add your specific Paris themed posts to.

One of the books I will be reading this July is Paris, Rue des Martyrs by Paris based author, and one of our Paris in July co-hosts, Adria Cimino. I am really excited about having Adria join our team this year – and to be able to have a real live author to chat with during the month! Here is a taste of what the novel is about from Adria’s website:


Some encounters make a difference.

Four strangers in Paris. Each one is on a quest: to uncover a family secret, to grasp a new chance at love, to repair mistakes of the past. Four stories entwine, four quests become one, as their paths cross amid the beauty, squalor, animation and desolation of a street in Paris, the Rue des Martyrs.

Rafael’s search for his birth mother leads him to love and grim family secrets. Cecile’s view of herself as an unsatisfied housewife is radically changed by the promise of a passionate liaison. Andre, an aging actor, troubled by the arrival of the son he abandoned years ago, must make a choice, to either lose his son forever or put aside pride and seek redemption. Mira travels to Paris to begin a new life and forget about love… or so she intends.

Four strangers, four stories, one riveting novel.

If you would like to join me in reading this book during July please head over to Adria’s website for more information on finding her novel. Mine is already downloaded onto my Kindle and ready to go…

What about you? What are you looking forward to reading during Paris in July?

    I loved this. When my daughter was a photography student she did a portfolio called almost French. It’s amazing how authentic she was able to make her shots look, but with a little twist.

    I’m looking forward to many things about Paris in July – I’ve just made some plans to host a Bastille Day Event, and I’m already up to my eye balls in interesting books I want to post about….. I look forward to hearing more about Adria’s novel too.
