  2. Oooh, Candide is hilarious and such a great read. And Albert Camus is one of my favourite authors; I try to read The Stranger/The Outsider once a year. I've only read Bel Ami by Guy de Maupassant and look forward to reading more of his work because his wit is just perfection.

    I keep thinking that I don't know that many French authors, but I've read Zola and know Dumas, so yay me!

    Good luck with the challenge - you've picked a great set of books.

    1. So...yay to you! ^__^
      Ah, you made me crave for Candide; I'll read it by end of February.
      I've been curious too of Maupassant, and I think it's good to try his short stories first before getting to Bel Ami.
