Confessions of a Paris party girl by Vicki Lesage

Confessions of a Paris Party Girl cover by Vicki LesageOne time won’t hurt and for once, i’ll review this book in English. It (unfortunately) does not exist in French yet and I have no idea when it will be translated.

Let me give you a bit of context : I have this American friend, her name is Vicki. She’s the kind of friend that left the US to spend a summer in Paris 8 years ago and never came back home, the kind of friend I spent countless hours with at the coffee machine, having philosophical debates about -I hate to admit it- not so philosophical subjects. Her life sounds like an action movie to me : by day she’s an IT director, because amongst numerous qualities, she’s a geek ; by night she’s gotten a job whose description sounds like : « webmaster-chef-wife-entrepreneur-mother-blogger-and-of-course-writer ».

Obviously, she does not waste so much time on frivolous activities such as sleeping or eating or even go to the maternity when she gives birth (she took the subway to go to work the day she had her first baby because she « did not realize her waters had broken »- true story). Anyways, over the last year, she was a little bored between her work, her cooking, her family, her websites etc., she decided to write a book and so she did.

It’s called Confessions of a Paris Party Girl (and party, she knows better than anyone I know) and it’s her story : drinking too much bubbly, meeting sappy Frenchmen who have girlfriends or are creeps or both, encountering problème after problème with French bureaucracy, when newly-single party girl Vicki moved to Paris, she was hoping to taste wine, stuff her face with croissants, and maybe fall in love. Long-time blogger and semi-professional drinker, she recounts the ups and downs of her life in Paris. Full of sass, shamefully honest admissions, and situations that seem too absurd to be true…

You should buy it and read it, it’s funny, it’s cute, it’s about wine, love, friends and Paris and, on top of all, you’ll get to read about this particularly interesting secondary character (on p.153), that I personally find fascinating : myself (Just kidding…).

You can buy it on amazon : Kindle (3,71€) or Paper (11,75€).

If you like it, write a review on Amazon or Goodreads and talk about it to your friends, she deserves it !

Also, you can check out her blog :

And there is a sequel : Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer !

  1. Thanks for the shout-out! I’m glad you like the book, particularly the character on page 153 🙂

    I know you’re more of a writer than translator but if anyone could translate this book perfectly into French while keeping the sassy tone, it’s you! We should think about it…

    Hope all your fans enjoy it too! I’ve heard from a few native French-speakers that I use quite a few words that they’re unfamiliar with but that they’re overall able to understand it and that it’s fun to learn the new words. Sounds like every day of my life in France!!!


  2. Grace a ton blog ( et quelques critiques Amazon) , j ai commencé à lire la cheik lit en anglais . C est hyper abordable et ça me donne l impression de garder mon maigre niveau d anglais.
    Je me laisserai sûrement tenter par celui ci 🙂
