Review - La Vie en Rose by Susie Kelly

Image
My Copy of the Book
Year Published: 2017 Genre: Memoir; Humor
Blurb: Living the French dream – vineyards, sunflowers, lavender fields, glasses of wine and platters of fromage. French ladies slender and chic, French men wearing berets and riding bicycles with baguettes clamped under their arms when they are not flirting outrageously, and all the while the sun shines down benevolently upon uniform rows of ripening vegetables. Dreams are strange and unpredictable, and sometime so is la vie en rose. A pick from some of the best bits of the popular travel author's blog diaries reveal the minutiae of expat day to day life in rural France. A must-read for Susie Kelly fans and anybody thinking of, or dreaming of, moving to France.
About the Author: Susie Kelly was born in grey post-war London, and spent much of her childhood and young adulthood in the beautiful country of Kenya. She now lives in south-west France with a menagerie of assorted animals, and is passionate about animal welfare. Her fir…

Since I was sick for most of this past week - I only ended up doing one review.

Gift of the Shaper by D.L. Jennings:
Amazon: Amazon Review - Gift of the Shaper
Goodreads: Goodreads Review - Gift of the Shaper
Here is my review of the book: Blog Review - Gift of the Shaper

Monthly Reading Goals:
Alright, I have managed to start this - and will most likely only be finishing one book this month. I'm attempting to squeeze a little bit more leisure reading in this month; and seeing how far I get with it.
Last Word: Even though I've been sick this past week; and have been able to get a lot of rest in - I've somehow managed to get quite a bit of reading done as well - which is pretty awesome. At the moment, I'm currently reading 'Fairytale Revenge' by H.L. Higgs, and will be doing a review of this book this coming week. I'll most likely be doing at least two reviews this week; I might be able to do another one if I manage to finish a leisure book. Another b…
