Last night hubs and I watched this Biopic of the famous French author (I love that he‘ll pick a Keira Knightly costume drama over almost anything! 😂)
Colette & her husband Willy lived a bohemian lifestyle, and the story of how she came to write, first under his pen name, is fascinating. Knew nothing about her going in.
So of course, off I went to book depository, and ordered a couple of her most famous novels.😊🛒📚
2 new Pride and Prejudice copies 😁
2 pirate novels
1 novel by Colette (can‘t wait to see the movie, starring Kiera Knightley!)
We‘re home safe from our #vacancesfrancaises! France was lovely, although I got very little reading done and am still adjusting back to my time zone. Woke up early this morning, so I have time for some coffee, Nutella waffles, and a bit from this book I picked up at Shakespeare & Co. Enjoying my first Colette— just check out that cover! 🇫🇷 ☕️ 🇫🇷 #Paris #classics
Colette is one of those authors that I‘ve been meaning to read for years. Seen this in the library and thought it‘s time I actually read something by her.
There is a #worsecover with a bedhead Michelle Pfeiffer from the movie version. (She of the bad Age of Innocence covers.)
But I think this one is pretty bad too, with its cheap romance vibe and aggressive shadowing.
