Only six books this week – I’ve been pretty busy! Only two were great successes; luckily the rest of them either don’t belong to me, or are on the list to be unhauled anyway! I think I’m headed for a bit of a slump though… I’ve barely read anything this weekend! Agggghhhhhh!
We’ll Always Have Paris: Trying and Failing to be French – Emma Beddington (2 stars)
This looked like it would be a really fun, quirky read. Unfortunately, it was more about the breakdown of a relationship, and the author’s grief over her mother. And yet, with these rather heavy themes, it still tried to be upbeat and quirky. It was incongruous and I couldn’t get excited about it. Also, Emma Beddington HATED Paris, so even the title is a bit strange… Not a good book to get excited about my own adventures there with!
