A Collection | Paris for One and Other Stories | A Review

It’s Easter weekend here guys, and I’ve managed to bag a long weekend. Time to read, write blog posts, see family and generally eat WAY too much chocolate in four days… oops!

Today I’m reviewing yet another Netgalley review. (I did warn you!)

Paris for One is a collection of short stories, written by Jojo Moyes.

Blurb

From the #1 “New York Times” bestselling author of “Me Before You” and “After You,” a sensational collection featuring the title novella and eight other stories. Quintessential Jojo Moyes, “Paris for One and Other Stories” is an irresistibly romantic collection filled with humor and heart.
Nell is twenty-six and has never been to Paris. She’s never even been on a romantic weekend away to anywhere before. Everyone knows travelling abroad isn’t really her thing. But when Nell’s boyfriend fails to show up for their romantic mini-vacation, she has the opportunity to prove everyone including herself wrong. Alone and in Paris, Nell uncovers a version of herself she never knew existed: independent and intrepid. Could this turn out to be the most adventurous weekend of her life? Funny, charming, and irresistible, “Paris for One”is vintage Moyes as are the other stories that round out the collection.”

Netgalley Review

Some interesting short stories. Loved that it was from different point of views, and of course, Paris is included in at least 2 of the stories. Highly recommend it for those that would like a quick read!

Another quick read, something which I’m sure those stuck in a reading lull will love, me included!

There’s various different point of views for these stories, all with different characters and we don’t always have the woman’s point of view but sometimes the mans, it makes for a nice change.

My favourite story had to be the first one, Paris for One. It’s always nice when a good group of friends have your back and kick your ass of a boyfriend up the butt for you! There’s also a lovely happy ending too!

As always, let me know in the comments below if you’ve read this book and if so, what your favourite story is in the collection and if not, well you know the drill, check the book out!
