Finally some french chick lit
on 4 April 2012
I stumbled across this series whilst browsing for some French Chick Lit and am very glad I did. Firstly, I am a fan of the genre and so the tone and subject matter is right up my street. Secondly I am so glad that I've found something that I can read in French that not only holds my attention, but is not so difficult that I have to stop and look stuff up all the time whilst teaching me new wee phrases and verbs that I previously didn't know.
The stories are short, which for me is a bit of a minus cos I'd like more. However, I do understand the author's reasoning to keep them short so as to not overwhelm the readers who may be more beginner level. That could be remedied by writing something longer for the intermediates and I may suggest that (since she replied to my email and so naturally we are now best friends lol)
I would recommend this series to my fellow chick lit lovers who are perhaps studying French like myself and looking for something to fill a huge gap in the market. The writing isn't to the standard of say a Marian or a Sophie, but they are enjoyable enough and I am just happy that they exist and can bring together my two favourite pastimes
