Hey,
I'm in Year 10 taking French GCSE and I find it quiet difficult to study in the way that school teaches, in a sense. I found the way I learn the most efficiently and thoroughly (regarding languages) is to just drown in all sorts of media in that language, and if there's an exam or something, I'd go into media based on that topic(s).

That's not really related, but my question is does anyone know any french books that like...you read in france? Not the french literature for English students, but just French literature? I'm very into crime and thriller and romance so if you've got any suggestions in those genres that would be prefered.

So far I've just got some childrens books which are okay to read, like Le Petit Prince, and I'm hoping to get Les Cahiers D'Esther in the future when I can afford them.
But I'm looking for "real" books, you know?

Also poetry?

Bonne journee tout le monde

In terms of media, there's the news sites, which have some free content, e.g. www.lefigaro.fr.

My kids loved (and still do) Asterix - you can order the books in French from amazon.fr, although it's not academic French, it could be a nice distraction. Otherwise, you should be able to get most books in French from amazon.fr, so take your pick.

Thank you! Do I need to make a new amazon account for the fr version?

Maybe something like No et Moi (Delphine Dr Vigan) or La Fille de Papier (Guillaume Musso) - they were some of the first books that I read in French!
