Book Shelf: The Little Paris Bookshop


I very rarely come across a book that I want to read more than once. The Little Paris Bookshop, by Nina George, is one of those books. If your idea of vacation is strolling the streets of Paris, looking over the Seine from one of the many Parisian bridges, and going on an adventure to the South of France, then this is the book for you.

It is a beautifully written book with a touching story. Of course, it helps that the story centers around many of my favorite things: travel, France, books, and food. Another bonus, the book includes recipes for bohemienne de legumes, pistou, lamb cutlets with garlic flan, and lavender ice cream.

I was mesmerized by the characters and their journeys, and delighted by the narrative. If you are looking for a romantic, light, feel good, warm and fuzzy book, then I highly recommend the Little Paris Book Shop.

I leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the book:

“Loving requires so much courage and so little expectation.”

I have loved cooking and baking since I was 5 years old. It was the one activity that I would share with all my extended family. Like most people, I love traveling. I love visiting the markets, exploring unknown ingredients, and bringing them back home with me for inspiration. I find that recipes with simple and pure ingredients yield the best results.
