Paris for One and Other Stories
Paris for One and Other Stories | Jojo Moyes
104 posts | 101 read | 6 reading | 54 to read
From the sensational #1 "New York Times "bestselling author Jojo Moyes, the perfect gift hardcover, timed for Christmas--a novella and short story collection never published before in the United States. 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."

I‘m not typically a fan of short stories, but I really enjoyed this collection. The stories were light and enjoyable. Reading this collection was an absolute treat.

Indulging in feel-good #romance novels around the #Christmas season. Something I rarely do 🤗

After that atrocious memoir, I found comfort in the romantic mind of Jojo Moyes. #currentlyreading

I quite liked this. The stories were easy to read and enjoyable. The title story is the longest and then the others are very short. Some of them I would have liked to read more

Some stories were good, some not so much. The first (Paris For One) and the last (The Christmas List) were my favorites; although Between the Tweets wasn't bad

Juno‘s getting a good smell off this super light read that I got from the free library down the street. The main story is excellent and reminds me of my love for Paris and all the other stories were short and sweet. Great summer read and I‘ll return it to the free library so someone else can enjoy.

I have yet to visit France, but I keep reading about it! Maybe someday. #France #LetsTravelJuly

CatGV Awwww, Paris and France, how I yearn for you. I love their accents! I speak French as my first language (from another country), but I long to visit France. In the meantime, I keep reading about it any way I can. :P 7mo

I loved the short stories about relationships and love. They were very nice to read.

I absolutely adore this book and it‘s going on my favorites shelf! The first story is a novella set in Paris, and as someone who recently started learning French and is obsessed with all things Paris, it really hit the spot. The rest of the book is a short story collection, and I must say not a bad one in the bunch. The last one was my favorite. These types of books aren‘t for everyone, but I absolutely loved it. 5⭐️

Liatrek I love this one too! I hope to get back to reading it again one day 😊 8mo
JenlovesJT47 @Liatrek it‘s definitely rereadable! I might get the audiobook next time! 🤗 8mo

A charming collection of short stories about women, romance, travel, and embracing one‘s authentic self. I am a sucker for anything related to Paris!

I finally got my stack together for #24in48! I have a couple of these on audio and a few others on the Kindle. I tried to select mostly shortish books I already own that I can fit into my reading challenge (Goodreads Seasonal Reading Challenge). Last I checked, there were almost 2,000 participants signed up. That‘s awesome!

I was completely prepared not to like this book. After all, my mom suggested it and she and I never read the same things. But I loved it. I liked the initial story, but it was the short stories after that I really loved. I wish there were more.

Quick read and stays true to Moyes‘ writing style. Nell is easy to love- stick with her, she can and will stand on her own two feet.

I enjoyed the main story. The writing is beautiful as expected from Moyes. The remainder of the book is short stories, slice of life kind of stuff. Not really my thing but wasn‘t bad.

A light summer read. The title story is a fun, albeit predictable, romance. The other stories are slices of modern life and relationships. I enjoyed the #audiobook version. It was nicely read. #ReadingAroundTheWorld #England

36/52-🌟🌟🌟- I liked a few of the stories, especially the first one. I just don‘t think her stories are my cup of tea, but I am glad I read her. I would consider reading another book by her, if it is highly recommended.

My weekend reading goals! Doctor says I can‘t go to the pool or do much activity until a small infection heals from a surgical incision. Surgery was a month ago... ugh! I guess I will have to spend my weekend reading. Happy Saturday!

75% finished with this read. I have really liked two of the stories very much, but the jury is still out on whether I will read another one of her books. I hope to finish by tomorrow and will decide.

I have been away from reading for several days, but I back and trying to finish “the other stories”.

KateFulfordAuthor If you need another recommendation, may I point you to my People‘s Book Prize nominated debut? Sassy female narrative, laugh out dialogue and a pacy plot. Check the link in the bio for 2 free chapters, reviews and more. 2y

LiterRohde Oh man. I just posted a TMI rant a week ago on doing this very thing - wasting a decade not living. Books - sometimes mirror; sometimes map. 2y
Tjackson @LiterRohde I can honestly say that I have spent the last 8 years living as much as possible, taking advantage of every opportunity, traveling as often as possible, engaging in random conversations, concerts, theaters, charity events, and life is good!!! 2y

Love reading about cities I live and experiences that could be mine. I travel solo and explore solo, and rarely hesitate to do it. When you experience the world by yourself, you learn a lot about yourself. I predict Nell from this story is going to learn about herself, too.

I came across this audiobook available from the library and since I have a lot of errands to run today, it seems like the perfect accompaniment! I‘m taking my husband to Paris for his first time in (gasp) 2 weeks, before I head to Oxford. I didn‘t realize how soon until I looked at this countdown calendar I set up. I really need this vacation so this fun little book is helping amp my excitement.

Tjackson Just bought this on kindle for $2.99!!! I can‘t wait to read it. 2y
HardcoverHearts @Tjackson What a steal! It‘s a fun one. I hope you like it. 2y

Nice set of stories. Her present-tense style of writing threw me off a bit.

“I realized pretty quickly I couldn‘t marry a man without a bookshelf.” I guess I was lucky my husband bought me a bookcase soon after we were married. 😊
