Dear normal world where normal people live,
I come to you from a distant past where phantoms sing under opera houses. Where hunchbacks save beautiful gypsies. Where there are men in iron masks, and counts of Monte Cristo. Musketeers and all that jazz. I write to you from the world of French Literature (because I can't think of a better name for this land I have fallen into).
I can't help but silently giggle like a fangirl when I read that above paragraph. Because it's true. My mind is in France.
My obsession with French lit. started a couple years ago when I read The Phantom of the Opera. That is probably my all time favorite classic book.
And now I just started reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and I realized... I have had this unknown respect for French Literature for awhile.
The Frenchies were pretty creative, weren't they?
Okay... yeah I've only read one book and 30 pages of anything French, but hey, who says there's no such thing as love at first sight?
Stay tuned for more of my French adventure, I'm sure there's going to be more ;)
