Hi! Wow I haven’t written for so long! With the work to do as school ended, rowing tournaments, and packing (and laziness), I haven’t been able to write. But now, for the first time in awhile, I will write! Pen to paper! Fingers to keyboard! So, without further ado, here are my five favourite French books!

  1. Le Petit Nicolas by Rene Goscinny- This is a classic, and though it is generally a little kids book, it helped me learn better the tenses when I was just beginning to learn French. It is a story depicting the daily life of a boy in 1950s France, called Nicolas.
  1. L’Ordinatueur by Christian Grenier- The title is a play on words of computer (Ordinateur) and Killer (Tueur). It is a mystery about several murders, all related to a computer. This is a substantially harder book to read than Le Petit Nicolas. It is written with very detailed descriptions, many tenses, and many difficult words for intermediate learners.
  1. Un Monde Sauvage by Xavier-Laurent Petit- This is the best French book I have ever read! The story is very exciting and interesting and has a great flow. It uses many difficult words and many tenses, but it is a great read. It is the story of Felia, a girl living on the border between Russia and China, tries to save a family of tigers from being sold into the black market.

I hope you enjoy reading these books as much as I did!
