Product description

About the Author

Amazon best-selling author Vicki Lesage proves daily that raising two French kids isn't as easy as the hype lets on. In her three minutes of spare time per week, she writes, sips bubbly, and prepares for the impending zombie apocalypse. She lives in Paris with her French husband, rambunctious son, and charming daughter, all of whom mercifully don't laugh when she says "au revoir." She penned two books, Confessions of a Paris Party Girl and Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer, in between diaper changes and wine refills. She writes about the ups and downs of life in the City of Light at VickiLesage.com.

By The Kindle Book Review TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 31 Mar. 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
It is a memoir but so funny. Vicky travels to Paris in search of parties. She brings the city to life and it is a great journey. The author has a brilliant talent for observations of life and combined with the city setting and a great writing style is an engrossing read. It is a quick read that said it is difficult to put it down once started and is one of those books that can be read more than once.

Vicky creates a great scene, takes the reader along with her and even when things do not go the way she wants she even sees the funny side of the down side.

It is a laugh out load book, just right for those gray days, pick up the book and go to Paris!! Vicky Lesage is a great travelling companion. A great read.

When Vicki moved to Paris in her mid 20′s, she started writing a blog of her time spent living in the city. This book is the result of those initial blog posts, after she ended up staying in Paris for longer than she could have imagined.

Vicki describes the city of Paris extremely well – detailed descriptions from a tourist arriving in Paris for the first time; the city, the accommodation, the delis, the shops and of course, the bars. On the assumption that the establishments named still exist, you could quite easily use Vicki’s recommendations as a reliable city guide, and I intend to try and hunt down some of the places myself in the near future.

Later, we read of an outsider who is attempting to make this city her home. If you’re considering such a move, this book could offer excellent advice as well as make great company if you find yourself experiencing similar frustrations at the hands of the French government as Vicki has to endure.

Food, wine and romance are all scattered throughout Vicki’s years in the French capital, and some of the friends she makes along the way as well as people she encounters, even if only briefly, make for entertaining reading. There are some fairly funny moments, largely due to the cultural differences between the Author and the people that surround her.

We’re invited to share Vicki’s very own love story, the type many can only dream about – including a handsome French Man in the City of Love. When you discover the Man in question is called Mika Lesage, you will no doubt guess where their story and the memoir itself is headed. Surprises are scarce, partying and confessions even more so and whilst I found this an interesting read, I also found myself wondering if/when something was going to happen.

Format: Paperback
Vicki is an American twenty-something who after losing her job decides to pack her bags and move to Paris for an unforeseeable time. With the money she earns with her work as a freelance web designer, Vicki can afford a small apartment and is ready to throw herself into the Parisian night life (which of course includes lots of wine in all forms!). The reader is taken along on Vicki’s Paris adventure, which consists of numerous hilarious situations, a large amount of complaining about France, but also her transformation from an American in Paris to a true Parisian who happens to be from America.

‘Confessions of a Paris Party Girl’ is a collection of Vicki Lesage’s stories of her time living in Paris, which started out as blog posts. I’m personally not a big fan of memoirs, but I really enjoyed reading about Vicki’s experiences in France. The book felt more like I was chatting to a friend who was telling me all about her adventures in Paris; stories which made me both shake my head in amazement and laugh out loud. I think it’s great how Vicki managed to convey this particular feeling into words and it’s definitely one of the strengths of this memoir. The fact that all of it is based on real-life experiences also gives it a realistic feel, because it gives a true account of what life in Paris as an expat is like.

I love how, as the book progresses, you can really see Vicki grow as a person and experience how her initial plan of going to Paris for a few months turns into a stay that lasts for much longer. I am sure people who love to travel and/or read about other cities and cultures will really enjoy this because of its distinctive voice and entertaining stories. ‘Confessions of a Paris Party Girl’ is a fun, light and quick-paced memoir, and I already look forward to reading the sequel, ‘Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer’!

Arriving alone with her laptop and a freelance web designer work plan, Vicki is in Paris to party, and party she does. My ever-sensible eyes nearly popped out of their sockets at some of her stories, including when she mentioned the early closing bar where everyone was booted out by 2.00am. It just highlighted my dull youth when I realise 2.00am has never been a time to move on to another bar for me. She is also not afraid to write honestly about being so drunk that unpleasant incidents occur - you should see the smug smile my sensible head is making now!

I was a bit worried from the description that there would be a bit too much moaning and anti-French rants in this book, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Vicki embraces all that Paris has to offer her; from the simple pleasure of walking to the boulangerie, to late night drinking sessions, to boyfriends found in bars, to full time French employment, to wedded bliss and beyond. Her writing brings the characters she meets to life, her friends, boyfriends, fellow Metro travellers and French officials and the stories she tells are full of humour, even the truly frustrating ones. What was most enjoyable was watching her change and mature as her life in Paris blossomed.

This book will give you a lighthearted look at life in Paris and should be essential reading for anyone planning a similar move to Paris or anyone missing the heady days of their youth. I am looking forward to reading more from Vicki.
