Paris, My Sweet

In my never-ending quest for knowledge for my upcoming European adventure, I borrowed Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate) by Amy Thomas from the digital library on my Kindle. I follow her blog, God, I Love Paris and decided her memoir would be a good read as well.


Good Reads' Synopsis: "Part love letter to New York, part love letter to Paris, and total devotion to all things sweet. Paris, My Sweet is a personal and moveable feast that’s a treasure map for anyone who loves fresh cupcakes and fine chocolate, New York and Paris, and life in general. It’s about how the search for happiness can be as fleeting as a sliver of cheesecake and about how the life you’re meant to live doesn’t always taste like the one you envisioned. Organized into a baker’s dozen of delicacies (and the adventures they inspired) that will tempt readers’ appetites, Paris, My Sweet is something to savor."

What I Thought: I really liked this one but it's possible that I liked it only because I love eating and can't wait to go to Paris. It was an easy, conversational read about a topic that I'm interested in. It also made me wish I could go live in Paris for a year. I would love to have the guts to do that but I'm pretty sure no one will be knocking on my door to hand me that opportunity. If you like pastries and you like Paris, you'll enjoy this book.
