Our Top French Books of 2018

Top French books cover pages
04/01/2019

2018 has just ended, and now is the perfect time to present our top ten of the most requested and popular French books here at Ottawa Public Library. We have created three lists, one for adults, including fiction and non-fiction, one for teen fiction and one for juvenile fiction. If most of the books on those lists are new releases from the last year, you'll also find some popular titles from previous years, like "Hunger Games" in teen fiction, and "La fiancée américaine" in adult fiction (the English translation, under the name "Songs for the Cold of Heart" was a finalist for the prestigious Giller Prize this year).

Happy new year and here's to a year filled with new reading!
