Paris In Love: A Memoir

My Rating : Okay Read (and it is killing to rate is as such)

Synopsis: In 2009, New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James took a leap that many people dream about: she sold her house, took a sabbatical from her job as a Shakespeare professor, and moved her family to Paris. Paris in Love: A Memoir chronicles her joyful year in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

With no classes to teach, no committee meetings to attend, no lawn to mow or cars to park, Eloisa revels in the ordinary pleasures of life—discovering corner museums that tourists overlook, chronicling Frenchwomen’s sartorial triumphs, walking from one end of Paris to another. She copes with her Italian husband’s notions of quality time; her two hilarious children, ages eleven and fifteen, as they navigate schools—not to mention puberty—in a foreign language; and her mother-in-law Marina’s raised eyebrow in the kitchen (even as Marina overfeeds Milo, the family dog).

Paris in Love invites the reader into the life of a most enchanting family, framed by la ville de l’amour.

My Review:  Paris in Love just wasn't my cup of tea.  Written by a professor I was really surprised that the book took on the same form as reading Facebook posts.  I had a hard time with the flow of the book and it didn't keep my attention at all.  If you are a fan of reading Facebook posts by others, I would definitely recommend Paris in Love to you.  It is killing me to write this review, but I honestly didn't care for it.

Buy it:  You can purchase Paris in Love online at Amazon for $26.00  ($14.40 for prime members or $12.99 kindle version).
