French Friday is a weekly feature hosted by Charlotte at the Book on the Hill. We both live in France, so it's where we write about Frenchy bookish things.
This week, I'm going to talk about a series of French fantasy books that I absolutely LOVE! It's a series of seven books about a young witch namedTara Duncan. Tara has been referred to as Harry Potter's French little sister. They take place in a world called AutreMonde (OtherWorld). We don't really learn too much about it in the first book, although I can already tell it's a world I want to know more about!
Here's what I had to say about the first book when I read it:
This book is adorable! It took me a little while to get into it, because in the beginning I couldn't help non-stop comparing it to Harry Potter. This was hard not to do because there are just so many similarities. But the fact is that, while Tara Duncan is a French female Harry Potter, as they say, she is also someone else entirely. She is quirky and fun and adorable, and in the end I became captivated by her and her friends and their adventures, and I'm looking forward to reading about the next of her magical, fantastical adventures.
I'm still looking forward to the other 6. :-)
If this sounds interesting to you, go check out the first three chapters in English at the website. Beware, though - the book itself is not yet released in English, and, as of yet, there is no set date that I know of. I'm sure, though, that it won't be long!
