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 ideas and melodies. That’s exactly how the format for In Paris With You looks like. It’s a feast for the eyes!! And a true reading experience.

Now, because it has such an unique style, the reading per se wasn’t as easy for me, because firstly it’s written in verse, but also because the format changes all the time. And the only conclusion I have is that this book needs to be enjoyed without being rushed. It’s a visual treat and needs to be treated as such.

If you love poetry. If you love something unique. lIf you enjoy reading in verses. This book is for you!!

Because I’m not really someone that enjoys poetry as much as others, just look at the success of Milk and Honey, reading In Paris With You would have not been my preferred reading material. Nevertheless I like reading outside of my comfort zone, and ended up really enjoying the authors’ ingenuity. The book made me smile and chuckle, thanks to a translation that was modern, hip and delightfully enchanting. But as much as I adored the concept, it didn’t give me the same feel a regular formatted romance would have. Nevertheless I’m incredibly glad that I was able to read this book – like I mentioned above, it was a most unique experience.

And if you know someone – family/friends – that loves poetry and romance – this book is the PERFECT gift!! Especially for YA readers.

Now about the plot:

Even though the book starts in the present, a good half of the book occurs 10 years before. The novel is all about first teenage love and speaks to everyone who has ever been in love. Ten years later Eugene and Tatiana meet again, and suddenly Eugene understands what he lost so many years ago and what might slip again through his fingers if he doesn’t grip this second chance with both hands.

Because sometimes life is all about taking opportunities without overthinking them too much.

In other words – Better To Try And Fail Than Never To Try At All – by William F. O’Brien.

In Paris With You – Clémentine Beauvais


Eugene and Tatiana had fallen in love that summer ten years ago. But certain events stopped them from getting to truly know each other and they separated never knowing what could have been.

But one busy morning on the Paris metro, Eugene and Tatiana meet again, no longer the same teenagers they once were.

What happened during that summer? Does meeting again now change everything? With their lives ahead of them, can Eugene and Tatiana find a way to be together after everything?

Written in gorgeous verse, In Paris With You celebrates the importance of first love. Funny and sometimes bittersweet this book has universal appeal for anyone who has been in love.

I was born in Paris in 1989 and though I started to read children’s books pretty early, I somehow never stopped. As a result, I’ve become a writer, reader and student of children’s literature. I’ve now been living and studying in Cambridge (UK) for seven years and have become a doctor. Well, not the type that saves people’s lives. The type that scribbles ‘PhD’ after their name and rambles on about beauty, truth and the value of (all) literature. Worth striving for, I think!
