#11 – Paris Time Capsule –  check

24858102

I was pleasantly surprised by this book.

If I ever received a package with a Parisan apartment key I would pass out. Then only to discover this apartment is a perfect time capsule of an era gone by (like 70+ years)…there would be no words. I was enraptured by this story. The journey Cat took to find the truth about this apartment and the fascinating women who lived in it. Their connection to one another and to her was breathtaking. There was excitement, romance, heartbreak, self-discovery and so much more. Only to discover myself in theAfterword that their was some truth to story parts and characters. Marthe de Florian (the original apartment owner in the story) was real  as well as the apartment. WOW…trully amazing. Here are the “real life” pictures of the time capsuled apartment.time-capsule

Now the great debate…WHAT TO READ NEXT?!?!?!?!

Everything, Everything by Nicole Yoon or The Woman win Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.

Why is the decision on your next book to read so hard?! Grrrrrr.
