What are you reading this summer? We love books that transport us to one of our favorite places: France. Paris, of course, as well as all of the other lovely spots around the country.

Here are our favorites, from Velvet Morning Press and beyond!




If you don't have enough time between trips to the pool for a long, intense read, you'll love these short stories, all set in the City of Light. From culinary treats (and catastrophes) to swoon-worthy romantic encounters (and heartbreaking mishaps), this anthology takes you on a journey through one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

We love these second-chance love stories... and the best part about this one is that it's real!
