Paris in July: Since Last Paris in July


Just because last year's Paris in July ended on 31 July, it doesn't mean I ended my French adventures

Here are just some of the things that I have done since last year. I will be sharing some reviews over the coming month, but not everything. If there is anything in particular you are interested in, please let me know and I will try to write something up. I could also have missed something, but hopefully not.

  1. That's quite an impressive list. I finally made it to your blog on a laptop computer -- on my iPad I have never been able to read it since you updated your format -- the text at the left is unavailable.
    best, mae at

    1. Yeah, I know. I tried to move the margins a bit but it messed up all the formatting! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I am especially interested in hearing more about Mastering the Art of French Murder. I think there is a sequel though I don't know its title.

    You've been quite busy. I should look through my blog posts and see what things I have done in the interim since the close of Paris in July last year.

    1. The sequel is called A Murder Most French! And there is a link in the post to my review. Tldr - it was fun!

  3. Just came to say the formatting is messed up on my laptop (13in Windows). I couldn't read the beginning of the sentences :-(

  4. Some enticing titles in your list of books.
