The Paris Wife, by Paula McLain
Genre: Historical Fiction
Themes: 1920's Paris, American Expat, Art Scene, Literature, Love & Marriage
When planning a trip to Paris for the first time, most people would struggle with what to wear. Being the book nerd that I am, however, I struggled with which book to bring along. The Nightingale and Turtles All the Way Down were strong contenders as books I’ve been wanting to read for awhile, but I ultimately chose The Paris Wife, which turned out to be the perfect book to read.
