Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate)

Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate) - Amy Thomas This was a disappointment. There are parts I liked a lot and parts that bored me to tears. All the food related parts are interesting, vivid and fun. Her quest for the best chocolate chip cookie, her love of croissant and her discoveries of a local bakery are all interesting and worth reading. It's the very egocentric and me, all about me, my ego and see how me is torn apart about living in Paris or New York. The Sex in the City drama type of narrative is boring. Annoying. I think I should have stick to her articles or blog not this blah travel memoirs thing that has some good food articles sections (the reason for the two stars).
