Bonjour tout le monde!
Since Janna is currently on vacation in my country, I thought I could talk a bit about France in books.
‘France is filled with HOT guys with sexy accent, and exotic names’:
<=== Of course Michael Vartan is the exception to the rule. Nom nom nom
So which French hottie makes YOU salivate?
Sexy Accent? Ok I have to admit that I find accents very sexy. But I’m pretty sure that when you imagine the perfect French hottie you aren’t imagining a Ch’tis accent. Yes people in the north of France have this very recognizable accent. There’s a very famous French movie about it: Bienvenue Chez les Ch’tis (It’s obvious at the end of the trailer). This is a very funny movie, I think they plan on making a similar movie set in the US with the Southern accent. See, even the sexiest man ever, can’t pull off this accent. I think the only way I could take him seriously is if he just shuts up. =P
(<====pic:The crazy Jean-Claude Van Damme)
Accordion Music and Béret: When watching a movie about France, I could bet you that nearly half the time there will be an old accordion music playing in the background and a guy with a béret. o_O Yes those were highly popular…when my grandparents were going out. But we have bad taste in music so I’m going to let this one pass. lol I realized not long ago that I don’t know any French music I could recommend. It’s pretty sad isn’t it? (damn I make such a bad French lol)
Do you have any book recommendations for me? *puppy eyes*
The last SEXY book set in France I read was Awakened by a Kiss by Lila DiPasqua. Damn those 3 rakes were hot!!
Thank you Janna for having me today! I hope you’re having lots of fun on your vacation! Do tell if you find that nest of Hotties! *g* Thank you everyone *waves*
