Interesting list of books! I personally have a penchant for history, so the one about the discovery of France definitely picks my curiosity.
I bought Robb’s Discovery of France a couple years ago and JUST pulled it off the TBR shelf last week! I didn’t know he also wrote a biography of Hugo. I look forward to your reviews.
So neat you are going to read Robb’s books!
