Can it really be time for Paris in July again? Seems so. It's certainly snuck up on me this year.
Paris in July is a month long celebration of all things Parisian (or French really) hosted by Tamara at Thyme for Tea. Her sign up post is here.
I had a momentary panic when I realised it was time for Paris in July. I hadn't made any plans for it. What would I read/watch/blog? I'm sure I can find something.
As with every July I will spend 3 weeks staying up late into the night watching the Tour de France. I'm sure there's lots of other French things I could watch on SBS. They even have a new free-to-air World Movies channel with lots of French content (but it seems I'm having trouble accessing it, I need to fix it).
I can go to any of my bookshelves/bookstacks and find some Parisian inspiration, so I quickly bundled some together for this month ....
But the number one thing that I should try and finish reading is Les Mis! To my great shame I never finished it last year with the marvellous Les Mis Readalong. I got 900 pages or so into it. Then I haven't touched it since Dec 31 2018. Quite a while ago now. I need to crack on and finish it. I'm hoping that Paris in July will be the perfect push in the right direction. Even James Corden is pushing me in the right direction...
Yeh! Im glad youre joining in.
Your reading shelf is full of very intriguing titles, most of which I don't recognize. I look forward to reviews of these books!

So glad you are jumping in! I think finishing Les Mis and watching the Tour are excellent goals for Paris in July.
Laugh! James Corbin in Paris is very funny!! Hope you enjoy the Tour and the rest of Les Mis - skimming is allowed for both 😉
Looking forward to your posts, Louise. And, thanks for that video clip! J. Corden sure's one brave man. :)
Good luck with completing Les Mis. What could be better for Paris in July?
