Title and Author: Confessions of a Paris Party Girl, by Vicki LesageGenre: Memoir, HumorSynopsis:Wine, romance, and French bureaucracy – the ups and downs of an American’s life in Paris. This laugh-out-loud memoir is almost too funny to be true! Drinking too much bubbly. Meeting sappy Frenchmen who have girlfriends or are creeps or both. Encounteringproblème after problème with French bureaucracy. When newly-single party girl Vicki moved to Paris, she was hoping to taste wine, stuff her face with croissants, and maybe fall in love. In her first book, this long-time blogger and semi-professional drinker recounts the ups and downs of her life in Paris. Full of sass, shamefully honest admissions, and situations that seem too absurd to be true, Vicki makes you feel as if you’re stumbling along the cobblestones with her.Will she find love? Will she learn to consume reasonable amounts of alcohol? Will the French administration ever cut her a break?Review:I received this book in exchange for an honest review. When Vicki reached out to me to review her book, I saw the title and knew I had to read it. We all know by now, one of my biggest obsessions is the Eiffel Tower and Paris. Vicki makes you feel like you are her. This book made me so happy, I couldn’t wait to end my day with Vicki to see what would happen next in what I thought of as “our” adventure. I just wish I drank more wine while reading it! If you love books, that are funny and get you thinking about wanting to move to a new place and start over (I’ve now thought about it a lot..) then this 5 star book is for you! It’s on my favorite books ever list now, xo!!
