Book review of La Vie En Rose by Susie Kelly

La Vie En Rose: Notes From Rural France by Susie Kelly review French Village Diaries
La Vie En Rose by Susie Kelly

Local Poitou-Charente author Susie Kelly and Blackbird Books are on a roll. One month after the launch of her brand new memoir Safari Ants and Baggy Pants, they have now released La Vie En Rose: Notes From Rural France.

While not an entirely new release, La Vie En Rose is a collection of Susie’s blog posts from October 2010 handily compiled in one place; her musings on daily life in rural France. From strange dreams to nightmare customer service, and dining room disasters to quirky neighbours, there is a little bit of everything, all served up with Susie’s sense of humour that never fails to make me smile.

Initially I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about reading a collection of blogs as a book, however, life has been rather hectic of late and having the energy to read, follow and remember complex plots at the end of the day was proving impossible. Being able to dip into a few snippets of Susie’s life before falling asleep put a smile on my face and was just what I needed.

Another great read Susie, thank you. 

La Vie En Rose is published by Blackbird Books and is available in ebook format for only 99p. Links to Amazon for Susie’s books can be found below. You might also like to read my France et Moi interview with Susie here or my reviews of her other books, see below:
