Julie is having a quarter-life crisis, she’s fed up with her job, and with her relationships that just don’t ever work out in her favor. So, she decides to finally do something for herself. In Eventually Julie by Anthea Syrokou, you’ll be whisked away to Paris along with Julie as she falls in love with the scenery and food, and maybe even find the love of her life.
A sweet, light-hearted chick lit book that will remind you of Eat, Pray, Love in the best ways possible. I love that Julie isn’t really looking for love in this book, it sort of just finds her, but what she’s truly searching for transcends all of the physical things in this world.
It was empowering to see Julie go from a run down woman to a woman full of life, taking on the world, as she wanders through Paris, she becomes more and more free of the burdens of her past, it’s as if she’s shedding layers of self-doubt. Truly beautiful.
Though I found some of this book to be quite “trope” filled, it was still fun to read, relaxing, and let me live in someone else’s world for a little bit. Thank you to the author for sending me this book. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. A fun, breezy, read that will fill your summer days with joy.
