French February

O, from Délaissé, is hosting a French February event for The Classics Club and I’ve decided to participate. There are two options: either a group read of Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Pierre Ambroise Choderlos de Laclos or to read one or more novels by French authors. I think I’m going to go with the first option. I could read more books but since I really want to read them in French (and I don’t read French as fast as Spanish or English), I know is going to take more time than usual and I rather commit to just one book.

I’m about to finish A Moveable Feast and I’m kind of in the mood for all things French, so this event is perfect for me. 

I’m a little bit obsessed with Paris, even though I have never been there. I went to Europe a couple of years ago but didn’t make it to Paris because I would have had to go alone and where’s the fun in that? I’m actually glad I didn’t go then so that I can make better plans for next time. 

(My bedroom wall obsessing about Paris...and London, ballet and other stuff)

Anyway, I’m looking forward to reading Les Liaisons Dangereuses and if I have time, maybe I can start with another French novel.

Wonderful, especially as you're reading in French! :)

Yes! It's actually good practice for me, I haven't read anything in French for a while and I don't want it to become rusty :)
