Hello!
I hope you are all well. For some reason, I completely forgot to post that I already chose my May book. After reading "The Martian" by Andy Weir, I went for a different genre of books and I chose the book "How To Be Parisian: Whenever You Are" written by four lovely French women, Sophie Mas, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret & Anne Berest.

The book is basically a detailed description of a Parisienne. The behaviours, fashion, beauty, and love are all included in this book.

"From four stunning and accomplished French women -- at last -- a fresh and spirited take on what it really means to be a Parisienne: how they dress, entertain, have fun and attempt to behave themselves.
In short, frisky sections, these Parisian women give you their very original views on style, beauty, culture, attitude, and men. The authors--Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret, and Sophie Mas -- unmarried but attached, with children -- have been friends for years. Talented bohemian iconoclasts with careers in the worlds of music, film, fashion, and publishing, they are untypically frank and outspoken as they debunk the myths about what it means to be a French woman today. Letting you in on their secrets and flaws, they also make fun of their complicated, often contradictory feelings and behavior. They admit to being snobs, a bit self-centered, unpredictable but not unreliable. Bossy and opinionated, they are also tender and romantic.

You will be taken on a first date, to a party, to some favorite haunts in Paris, to the countryside, and to one of their dinners at home with recipes even you could do -- but to be out with them is to be in for some mischief and surprises. They will tell you how to be mysterious and sensual, look natural, make your boyfriend jealous, and how they feel about children, weddings and going to the gym. And they will share their address book in Paris for where to go: At the End of the Night, for A Birthday, for a Smart Date, A Hangover, for Vintage Finds and much more.
How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are will make you laugh as you slip into their shoes to become bold and free and tap into your inner cool." - Good Reads 

I am almost finished  with the book. The book itself is so funny and informative at the same time. I wish I was a classy Parisienne now. hahaha. Since I am now officially a young adult (I'm 19), it is interesting to know how other women behave, overcome daily life struggles and lure men to their webs. hahaha. Anyway, I highly recommend this book. I promise you will have a good laugh and learn at the same time. In addition, the book has lots of pictures and so on, to keep you interested, which I find it a bonus. Have you read the book? What did you think about it?

Expect me soon, babes. 
XOXO, IF
