this is the perfect book to read in bed before you fall asleep and you're like "i'll just get a few pages in so i can doze off" and then oops you just read 100 pages but it's kind of okay because it's poetry so it's fast? but at the same time that doesn't change the fact that it's 2 a.m. and your sleeping schedule is just as much in shambles as it was the night before and also has been for your entire life.

that's a long way of saying "i read this book in three nights, exclusively after midnight.

I started reading In Paris With You on 10/16/2018 and finished it on 10/22/2018. This is my first ever fiction poetry read and I love it! This love story makes me smile right from the beginning and keep me smiling until the end. One night I got woken up at 2AM and decided to read this book for 30 minutes. I ended up reading it for more than 3 hours! Instead of helping me to sleep, this story only makes me want to turn the pages more and more. This book definitely proves why I enjoy reading about ...more

An elegant story of first love, second chances, and heartbreak!

This story was told in verse, it took a wild to get used to the style, but once I did I was completely entranced... The book was also translated from French, I can only imagine how difficult it was to translate such a stylized book, so major props to the translator! As much as I enjoyed this story, I do recognize that the style is not for everybody.... but told in verse or not this was a lovely love story set in the city of love, Pa

This book is different from any other book I ever read.

The format of how this novel is written is just gorgeous. I've never seen a book written like this, it felt to me like an entire new reading experience. And I'm not surprised that it was such a success in France, the author's home country.

The one comparison I have is the song Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. If you ever listened to the song you realize that the lyrics and melody are comprised out of many different blocks of different ide

I'm shook? I don't really know what happened, I'm a mess of feelings right now. Did I like it? Did I dislike it? Do I want to scream? All of these? I'm in pain.

I need to say that this book wasn't perfect. Not at all. Sometimes I couldn't connect with the characters or what they were feeling, but there were moments that made me smile, laugh and tear up a little. It's hard to put words on how I feel about this book, I guess the easiest way to describe it is to say that it's a beautiful mess?

Thank you St. Martin's Press / Wednesday Books for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I started this yesterday and it's definitely a quick read since it's written in verse. I couldn't appreciate this book because the format was messy. I'm not sure what the final copy looks like and I bet it's better. Unfortunately, I'm giving this one star because I was bothered by Tatiana. When she lied about her pregnancy and told her "baby" has Down Syndrome so she can have a free seat in publi

You can't make love standing up when you're in love — that's obvious: being in love unsettles you internally; when someone steals your heart, they also steal your center of gravity.

this reminded me of how it felt to fall in love with a book. i loved every single moment and word of it. that’s all.

At night, if/when he finally fell asleep,
this sadness would be lying in wait for him at his bedside,
and it was the first thing he saw when he opened his eyes.
Still there, I see.
Good morning, pain.

I received this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
Agh! This book was the sweetest!

Story:
This story was actually in verses? So it was like a poem. Usually I don't usually go for these types of books so this was a pleasant surprise! I actually enjoyed the writing. It was organized and wasn't confusing. However, I felt sometimes the love thing went a little overboard. It was just a little much for me.

Characters:
My favorite character by a mile is Tatiana! She

I gave this a two, but that is personal preference motivated. I am definitely not a fan of reading a complete story in verse. There are times when I had to reread a page several times because I just couldn't focus. I found it exhausting to read and it was tough to get through.

With that said, if someone enjoys reading a story in verse and they enjoy romance, I think they will probably enjoy this story. It wasn't a bad story and the characters were okay. Although, I was not very attached to them.

The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

First of all let me just say that I really liked the writing style, it was unique and very enjoyable. The story was very cute and I liked it very much. Tatiana and Eugene, our two main characters, meet two times in their lifetimes, once when they're teens and another one when they both are in their twenties. Could the second time be the right one? That's basically what this book tried to discover

This was not the book for me... I really do not like the poetry writing style. It's hard to follow a story in that kind of format. And I'm still confused about who the narrator is? And if they're just the narrator, why did they have a "scene" with Eugene?

This is not a cute and fluffy love story... And it doesn't read like YA (not even sure why it categorized as YA). Eugene is basically the worst and deserves to be alone. To advertise this book as something for fans of Eleanor and Park is ridicul

Eugene Onegin was one of the rare books I read in high school without skipping pages or passages and liked in the end. And while I'm not big on retellings, I decided to give this one a chance because the synopsis just got to me.
This book is an easy read and a fairly entertaining one. It started off so well, light, playful tone in the writing whose silliness made it hard to put this book down. But then it brings up an unexpected storyline which simply doesn't go with the tone that the book is wri

(3.5) I don’t know the source material Beauvais was working with (Eugene Onegin, 1837), but still enjoyed this YA romance in verse. I was, however, reminded a bit of the setup and characters of Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev. I’m in awe at how translator Sam Taylor has taken the French of her Songe à la douceur and turned it into English poetry with the occasional rhyme. Eugene and Tatiana meet by chance in Paris in 2016 and the attraction between them is as strong as ever, but a possible ...more

I was excited to read this book because of the blurb and the format (a story about lost love and having second chances).

I really liked how the story was told in different time frames and we get to see how the characters evolved. The characters are what make or break a book for me and unfortunately, I wasn't very fond of the characters in this book. Tatiana pretends to be a preganant woman every day just so she can have a seat on the train on her way to work, her sister Olga comes off as

I won an arc in a Goodreads Giveaway. A big thank you to Wednesday Books! All thoughts and opinions are my own.

If a book could articulate love perfectly, then this is it! For clarification, I don't read poetry. I don't really enjoy it. I'd rather read a book for what it is than try to dissect every line for the clues it has to offer. But this. THIS! This was so interesting yet so clever and extremely funny.

“Boredom exists everywhere, you know. It’s called different things.
We say ennui, the English spleen,
the Russian khandra.
But changing the name doesn’t alter the feeling. You can’t escape your mind.
Boredom is not a place you can leave behind.”

In Paris with You was not my first experience in terms of “poetry fiction”, but I quite enjoyed the author’s style. More often than not, it reminded me of a narrative technique I had fallen in

I can’t decide between 3 and 4 stars. I’m somewhere in the middle but more towards 4. Haha. Exactly. I’m just a complete mess after this.

In Paris With You is my first book in verse that I’ve perhaps ever read. I can’t recall anything else. And I’ve definitely never read anything like it at all.

The reason I came across it was because I’ve been trying to find books, YA books that is, that are not set within the US. And I somehow found this. Which was originally written in French and oh so amazin

I gave this a 3.75 out of 5 stars.
I liked that In Paris With You was told with poetry. I marked the lines and I really liked. I liked that Eungene changed from when he was a teenagers. I didn't like him when he was seventeen. I liked Tatiana when she was fourteen and how she loved to read and used text from books to explain how she felt. I liked the decision she makes towards the end. I didn't love In Paris With You though, I felt like something was missing from it.

What if fate brought you and the one-you-threw-away back together, a decade after that bad decision?

Eugene and Tatiana were serendipitously reunited on the Metro after ten years apart. The meeting reawakened old feelings for both - some good, some bad. Beauvais beautifully explored these emotions, as well as inviting us back to the summer they spent together.

I thought the way Beauvais used verse to tell the story had a great impact on the delivery, and quickly created a blanket of emotions ove

Firstly, I absolutely love the book cover. I think it is eye-catching and beautiful! Accompanied with the title they just match!

Secondly, I love the format of the book. It was written in a poem format! Hence, making it fun and fast to read.

Besides that, this book taught me a lot about maturity and love. Being mature is part of growing up, as we were young we tend to believe what we wanted to. However, believing what is good and pure is important regardless of our age. Moreover, love is what make

A beautifully written novel about a love so true and strong. A story filled with words that grasp your attention. Written in poem stanza, filled with rumbling of words that send you raising after the characters thoughts, dreams and reality. The characters have vivid day dreams and times where they talk to themselves, giving you a picture of their thoughts and feelings. I loved how the author would take you from the past and back to the present. Author freely threw words, phrases and poems to bri ...more

This is a re-read for me ! Because of my reading slump, I wanted a quick and easy read, and I had what I wanted.

This book is like so soft and heart-warming but like so strong and powerful at the same time. I don't think it's for everyone because it is a novel written in verse, but gosh, I love it so much.

It is full of feelings. Raw feelings. Sometimes ugly feelings. But it is sososoooo accurate !

Yes, the "love the story" is a bit disturbing, a bit questionning too, but I LOVE IT.

I was given an early English copy from Wednesday Books to read and I devoured this charming book in two days. The prose sang to me and made me giggle and also cry at times. The flashbacks were so relevant and real that I found myself blushing along with the teen Tatiana. Adult Eugene made me swoon with his utter sincerity. “In Paris” is a love story in every dreamy, blissful, naive, tragic, stark and desperate kind of way. I confess to being a sort of “novel-in-verse” virgin, but I’ve been forev ...more

This is definitely more like a 3.5 star read. I did really like it, some of the words are beautiful and I loved the simple tale of boy meets girl. Sometimes it got a little bit too wordy and I found myself drifting off in those passages, but generally a really cute little read. I will always adore being back in Paris, even if just in the pages of a book!
