Marriage Vacation Book Review

Assuming that this book is for women who are having a midlife crisis is jumping to conclusions and you need to hold on a sec.

They always say not to judge a book by its cover, so, ya know, don’t.

3 Lifestyle Books You Have to Read NOW!

Spring has sprung, and around this time of year, I tend to find myself completely absorbed in Lifestyle or Self Help books.

I honestly don’t know why, maybe it’s the change of season.

So for today’s blog post, I’m going to share with you three of my absolute favorite lifestyle/self help books I’ve read.

 

  1. How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style and Bad Habits by Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret & Sophie Mas

Buy it here

I can’t remember how I found this book, but I’m so glad I did. Once I got my hands on a copy, I couldn’t put it down.  Obviously, this choice may be biased, because I’m absolutely obsessed with Paris and the French lifestyle. But this book is so unbelievably well written. It’s funny, helpful, and gives you the tips you need to be a chic madame.

 

2. Nice is Just a Place in France: How to Win at Basically Everything by The Betches

Buy it Here

This book is definitely the most explicit out of this group. This hilarious book is written by the Betches, three kick ass female graduates from Cornell University. Their main objective is teasing the life millennials obsess over. You’ll laugh until you cry, so if you’re looking for a comical perspective on how to own your life, then this is the book for you.

 

3. What Would Audrey Do? by Pamela Keogh

In case you didn’t know, Audrey Hepburn was one of the classiest, most elegant lady who ever lived. So, when you’re looking for a self help book that’s dedicated to having style and grace, it’s a no brainer that Audrey would be the ultimate goal to strive towards. This is one of my favorite books ever, it’s a page turner and is beyond well written. I treasure this book, and I hope you do too.

This has been a chloscall.

Until next time,

Turtles All the Way Down

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with John Green- I feel like I’ve been pretty vocal about it before as he has become one of my favorite authors. I think he is a phenomenal writer, but what I love most about him is that he’s pretty much just a regular Joe; a father, a husband, residing in quiet Indianapolis.  If his name sounds familiar, it’s most likely because one of his previous novels had taken the world by storm. The Fault in Our Stars was pretty much his big break, obviously you’re welcome to disagree with me, but most know his name from this best selling novel.

Anyways, in the fall of 2017, Green released a new masterpiece- Turtles All the Way Down. I was so excited that he had released another story, I get so lost in his words and feel like I’m also apart of the inner circle with the characters.

Turtles All the Way Down follows Aza, a young girl in high school who constantly struggles with her perception of what being normal is. Along side Aza is her best friend Daisy, an anonymous secretly-kind-of-famous Star Wars fanfic writer. Aza and Daisy partake in seemingly normal teenage girl adventures: homework dates and frequent dinners at Applebee’s.

Little did they know that their lives were about to be turned upside down when they find themselves mixed up in a mystery; is Mr. Pickett really alive or did he actually leave behind his two sons without a word? Aza finds herself emotionally connected as she falls for Mr. Pickett’s eldest son, Davis who she hasn’t seen since childhood.

I found the novel to be an adventurous page turner that I could never really put down. But let’s face it, John Green hasn’t failed me yet. What I really enjoy about this novel is the fact that it focuses on common mental health issues. A lot of people just try to turn the other cheek and pretend as if mental heath isn’t real or isn’t serious, but Green liberates that idea. Green reassures readers that mental health issues can be very serious and are very much a live. I think anyone who has the same feelings Aza does will greatly appreciate and treasure this book for it’s charming honesty.
