For guaranteed tender romance I know I can turn to Nicholas Sparks. While this book is not as good as some of his others, I enjoyed it and finished it in 2 days, it was a very fast read for me. I completed it on September 19th.
I'm fascinated by Parisian culture and I looked forward to reading this book. It was about a 6 or 7 out of 10. I wasn't irritated to be wasting time reading it, but I definitely am glad I didn't buy it and I won't reread this book in the future (as I do if I really enjoy a book). I completed this book on September 27th.
I have read this book and was looking forward to the movie when its release was postponed to help it for award season (since The Devil Wears Prada received some nominations the year before). It wasn't necessary to wait, this movie really doesn't stand a chance. It was fun, but really didn't compare to the book. I did enjoy seeing how some Manhattan mothers raise their children with access to fancy schools, etc., and I will definitely watch it again, but it didn't live up to the hype surrounding it.
