This will be a long post, but you can scroll to the end if you want to see my July favorites 🙂
In July I read 31 books and watched 3 movies. 24 were Paris related, 2 were Gage read alongs, 2 were for homeschool, 1 devotional, and 1 for a book tour.

Oh my gosh, it’s been so much fun sharing this journey with you (and Sammi). I dont read alot, but I love hearing about what others read – and this year, first time ever I think, we’ve had Paris themed puzzles – and j’adore ca! My wish list for next year is growing too….
I had so much fun! Thank you for hosting and letting me join in with the rag tag posts. It was fun to post about more than books this month, something I haven’t done in quite a while.
If there was a prize for that Paris challenge , you should certainly be in the running. You did a marvelous job and so much so I now have several future reads that take place in Paris – because of you (and Gage). That cat photo is priceless LOL
Sammi has become quite the poser. She jumped in my pic today too! Of course, she make it way more interesting so I don’t mind. There are SO MANY books set in Paris. I had no idea before I started.
I’ve never joined Paris In July but the more I read post I read about it the more I think I should. It looks fun and I think I’d like a lot of the books you all read.
Do it! 🙂 I was a fun month 🙂
Stacy, you had a busy and full month of reading. I am pleased that you were able to finish a 1000 piece puzzle of Paris.
Last week you asked if anyone had read any Hemingway books. I have read all of the short stories and some of his novels. Hemingway did a masterful job of telling a story in very few words.
I believe I’ve read some of his short stories too, but it’s been awhile, before blogging. The reason I started this blog in 2008 was so I could keep track of what i was reading. I wrote book reviews for another site before but it’s not around anymore so I can’t even check what books I wrote about.
What a great month you had in Paris! You chose some great books, and I love that big, beautiful puzzle. So much fun.
Call of the Wild + Free sounds like it’s a wonderful book for those considering homeschooling. You’ve certainly enjoyed that adventure last year, and I’m glad you are looking forward to next year’s adventures.
I will look for Begin With a Bee.
Great job with the puzzle… I’ve enjoyed tagging along for your Paris in July! Three of your five favorites were big hits for me, too, especially My Life in France.
I have loved all your French books and puzzles this last month! Love that beautiful puzzle at the end. I even picked up a couple of French wines this month …
I’ve had Sarah’s Key on my list for a long time. I think there’s a movie adaptation. I may have to pick it up.
Good luck with your homeschooling this year! I can’t wait to see and hear about it!
Enjoy your week. Stay safe out there!
Yes, to the Sarah’s Key adaption. I need to see it!
Paris in July sounds like a great project. Sorry I couldn’t join, but I’m now reading a photographer’s memoir set in Paris, where she tries to make a living. It’s Paris: A Life Less Ordinary, a Memoir.
Wow, you really managed to read a few books. I love The Paris Wife, and I also like Süskin’s book. Although I read it many, many years ago. Probably, because it was a different kind of murder mystery, although rather groteseque.
I see you drink wine from my favourite French producer, Guigal. Very good. Their Gigondas is even better.
Thanks for the wine recommendation 🙂 I’ll see if my local store has it!
