This love story makes me smile right from the beginning and keep me smiling until the end One night I got woken up at 2AM and decided to read this book for 30 minutes I ended up reading it for than 3 hours Instead of helping me to sleep, this story only makes me want to turn the pages and This book definitely proves why I enjoy reading about the beginning of love so much the yearning, the daydreaming, the lost of sleep, etc It s so cute to follow both Tatiana and Eugene s thinking processes The page layout is a bit different, but as I got the hang of why it s spaced out like that, I enjoy reading it a lot I like that both characters get to experience having the feelings of anticipation for one another and then having their heart torn to pieces.This book is told in the third person point of view following Eugene and Tatiana They knew each other from ten years ago where she was 14 and he was 17 Now they run into each other on the train, Tatiana going to the library and Eugene going to his grandfather s funeral They exchange contact info while they notice the changes in each other that they didn t see from ten years ago As Eugene witnesses Tatiana s professor falling head over heels for Tatiana, Eugene notices himself getting irritated by the second He then thought back to how they first met when he was 17 to explain why she s not in his life today This book is written in a poetry format with words that rhymes Each chapter is long but it covers a whole time period, whether today or 10 years ago, so readers won t get confused The narrator sometimes talks to readers.In Paris With You is very well written and a book to make you smile I love reading this book so much I m not a poetry reader but this book definitely convert me Each point of view is so honest and real that it can be easily relatable to readers Tatiana s expectation of love comparable to her favorite reads of Romeo Juliet and Pride and Prejudice had me giggle to no end I like Eugene s careful protection of his heart and Lansky loving it all without putting up fences to protect himself I like the lessons learned the characters experiences I like how love can make adults act like teens This book is a couldn t put down kind of read and I recommend everyone to read it.Pro fast paced, page turner, romance, humor, Paris, witty, couldn t put down, mini cliffhangers,Con noneI rate

later a chance encounter and the sparks are rekindled but life is complicated and love is messy, even in ParisSuch a sweet satisfying story of love and loss both Tatiana and Eugene were likable and a

this, it felt to me like an entire new reading experience And I m not surprised that it was such a success in France, the author s home country.The one comparison I have is the song Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen If you ever listened to the song you realize that the lyrics and melody are comprised out of many different blocks of different ideas and melodies That s exactly how the format for In Paris With You looks like It s a feast for the eyes And a true reading experience.Now, because it has such an unique style, the reading per se wasn t as easy for me, because firstly it s written in verse, but also because the format changes all the time And the only conclusion I have is that this book needs to be enjoyed without being rushed It s a visual treat and needs to be treated as such.If you love poetry If you love something unique lIf you enjoy reading in verses This book is for you Because I m not really someone that enjoys poetry as much as others, just look at the success of Milk and Honey, reading In Paris With You would have not been my preferred reading material Nevertheless I like reading outside of my comfort zone, and ended up really enjoying the authors ingenuity The book made me smile and chuckle, thanks to a translation that was modern, hip and delightfully enchanting But as much as I adored the concept, it didn t give me the same feel a regular formatted romance would have Nevertheless I m incredibly glad that I was able to read this book like I mentioned above, it was a most unique experience.Now about the plot Even though the book starts in the present, a good half of the book occurs 10 years before The novel is all about first teenage love and speaks to everyone who has ever been in love Ten years later Eugene and Tatiana meet again, and suddenly Eugene understands what he lost so many years ago and what might slip again through his fingers if he doesn t grip this second chance with both hands.Because sometimes life is all about taking opportunities without overthinking them too much.In other words Better To Try And Fail Than Never To Try At All by William F O BrienC generously provided in exchange for an honest review If you want

satisfy your expectations Thank you NetGalley and St Martin s Press for providing me this copy in exchange for an honest review Thoughts and opinions are my own flag 6 likesLike see review Aug 05,

the book for me I really do not like the poetry writing style It s hard to follow a story in that kind of format And I m still confused about who the narrator is And if they re just the narrator, why did they have a scene with Eugene This is not a cute and fluffy love story And it doesn t read like YA not even sure why it categorized as YA Eugene is basically the worst and deserves to be alone To

uncomfortable Can we have a moment to look at the deceptively adorable cover, DON T LET IT FOOL YOU there are issues with this book for days and days At no point did I feel an ounce of happiness A Convenient List of Reasons Why You Shouldn t Read This 1 Very serious, triggering issues are playfully handled For example, Tatiana informs people that she s pregnant and her that baby has Down syndrome UPDATE She s not pregnant, nor the parent of a disabled child, but instead just wants a free seat on public transit I didn t feel comfortable with Tatiana joking about Down syndrome, even if it didn t become a theme it s briefly mentioned.2 Suicide is handled SO BADLY This is a major TW for many people, but the characters just casually mention it, often describing it as a potential escape from boredom Eventually, one of the characters carries out the act Up on the rooftop, he told me my life is fucked up, it s all over, and then he jumped Overall, the tone remains fluffy through even this It s almost handled comically Eugene can t take it seriously and I was f ing astonished.3 Fatphobia I ll just provide the quote Lensky turns up at the usual time, escorted by Eugene s elephantine absence, which, having gained twenty pounds overnight, proceeds to break three wicker chairs, crush the parasol and smash all the porcelain before slumping across the forged iron table I understand the above is creative imagery to describe the feeling of missing Eugene while he s away However, it s imagery nonetheless, concerning personified weight gain and body size 4 There s a moment in which Eugene is trying to decide how to organize his condoms, and he can t decide whether to leave the box open or closed He says open slut, closed virgin, and both are considered Bad I m so tired of the negative connotations related to sexual experience.Overall, we ve covered insensitive handling of disabled children, suicidal teens, sex, and fat people Honestly, I would recommend just skipping this book altogether.We do get some really lovely descriptions of Hallmark moments I mutter weakly Are you bored, sitting with me now Hello, madam I would like to buy the little mole from Eugene s neck please yes that one yes yes the one that looks like a peppercorn Eugene observes Lensky as he falls to pieces before his eyesI was fragile, and naive, but at least I was free But for me, the few redeeming poetic instances of prose didn t make up for all the problems The tone wasn t right for the material TWITTER flag 5 likesLike see review View 1 comment Mar 01, 2018 Mdg2810 rated it it was

decade after that bad decision Eugene and Tatiana were serendipitously reunited on the Metro after ten years apart The meeting reawakened old feelings for both some good, some bad Beauvais beautifully explored these emotions, as well as inviting us back to the summer they spent together I thought the way Beauvais used verse to tell the story had a great impact on the delivery, and quickly created a blanket of emotions over me The writing was lovely and lyrical, and I was impressed with how well she captured and created certain feelings for me One of my favorite characters was Lesky He was the embodiment of all those heightened teen feelings you have A teen Tatiana complemented him quite well, though she brought of a youthful, starry eyed exuberance to the tale This book was listed under YA, but for me, it s an adult novel There are flashbacks to that summer, when the characters were 14 and 17, but the summer was viewed and the commentary attached was from that of adults It was about second chances and taking chances It s about realizing you were young and wrong and made mistakes It s about getting an opportunity to fix those mistakes, and it made me both smile and cry Though I was a little disappointed with the ending, I did enjoy the journey I took with Eugene and Tatiana, and I can imagine what came next ARC provided in exchange for an honest review BLOG INSTAGRAM TWITTER

I ve been trying to find books, YA books that is, that are not set within the US And I somehow found this Which was originally written in French and oh so amazingly translated to English It s poetic so of course it s beautiful And of course it speaks to your soul And it rhymes The translator is brilliant I thoroughly enjoyed the majority of the book And it surprisingly only took me a few pages to get used to the verse My favorite parts were the flashbacks to the teen years But the ending drove me nuts It reminded me of the movie Love Rosie That we are both in love with each other but won t dare to admit it lest we get hurt trope One in which makes me annoyed to no end I just can t relate holding in such feelings and emotions like that for so long It just feels stupid to me and I only ever come across such stupidity as a means to dramatise books movies But hey that s just me The plot has a really amazing way of ravelling and unravelling and reconnecting between past and present so smoothly and cleverly as well, how things click together I liked that a lot I m really glad I found this little gem And I believe it s going to be released in the US in 2019 flag 3 likesLike see
