I speak French and decided to make a when Frenchie in me is reading book selection. I worked in Alliance francaise in Varna, Bulgaria in the past and there was a big library with plenty of classic and modern French and Francophone literature. As Alliance francaise organized a lot of cultural events, we also invited many famous writers and authors to be our guests and make workshops around their books. I met some of the people mentioned below like Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt and Frederic Beigbeder in person and had copies of their books autographed specially for me! What an honour!
The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery is one of the most intellectual, funniest and brilliant books I’ve ever read! The book is a bestseller and it’s translated into many languages for a reason! A movie based on the book has been also released.
