NOTES ON: Paris For One by Jojo Moyes
I'm trying something new! Sometimes a full multi-paragraph review isn't necessary, such is the case for PARIS FOR ONE. I really enjoyed this short story and subsequent shorter stories but it also doesn't really warrant a full review. That doesn't mean I don't have some quick notes or thoughts to share on the book. So I'll just do a quick blurb and call it a day...
NOTES: I thought Paris For One was a cute read! I can highly recommend it. The first half is the titled short story, which will satisfy the chick-lit/sweet romance fans.
Following that are a sequence of shorter stories or writing explorations. I enjoy it when an author gets to explore ideas that maybe aren't enough for an entire book but are still interesting ideas worth writing. Some are sweet and fun, others are serious and deep. You may enjoy some or all of them but to me they were worth the read.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest thoughts.
RATING: ★★★★☆/ 4 Stars!
