    If I visit Paris again, this is one of the books I'll bring with me! It's really amazing! Angie has covered every aspect of fashionable Paris, in a fun way and she's observant. You are going to find addresses, shops, tips, recipes (like a Rachel Khoo's one!), and tidbits of personal stories. It's a great traveling companion. Angie chapterized Paris into 12 chapters, writing about 12 arrondissements of 20. With each chapter/arrondissements, she describes the Parisian women occupying each section.

She starts with the top, the richest Parisians occupying Trocadero with their Hermes scarfs and Chanel bags, and finishes in Champ de Mars with the hippie, laidback style. Of course, I would love to be Trocadero girl but I guess I'm mostly something between Lower Marais, Latin Quarter and Saint-Germain. An honorary Parisian at heart! Beautiful book, detailed and fun!

    I bought this book based on the high average rating and because I always love to page through photos of Paris. Not only does this book make gross generalizations ("All Saint-Germain girls shop here," "all Canal Saint-Martin girls wear this," etc.) and give stale recommendations (Did you know Café de Flore is a great place to people watch? Or that Pierre Hermé has great macarons? GROUNDBREAKING!) but this book has quite possibly the most typos of any book I have ever read.

I can overlook one or two typos and am slightly more lenient when it comes to foreign words, but this is inexcusable. It's very clear Niles doesn't know French, but who in the world edited this book?! Ladurée was spelled "Lauderée", and Paris, the SUBJECT of this book, was once spelled as "Piaris" at the START of a chapter. This was aggravating beyond belief and the lack of focus or purpose in the book's structure--even the beautiful photos--weren't enough to make up for any of it.

    The chocolate box version of Paris and the Parisienne. I'll go easy on it because it is a very pretty coffee table book and it does make me want to board the next TGV to Paris - under 4 hours from Stuttgart, why not indeed? Except I'd have to rob a bank first, obviously ... Anyway, what I find slightly off-putting is the number of typos. I mean, "sillouhette"? Chocolate in French is "chocolat". Tip of the iceberg, sadly. Had to deduct one star for that. I don't regret buying this, but when it comes The chocolate box version of Paris and the Parisienne.

    "Bright Lights Paris: Shop, Dine & Live...Parisian Style" by Angie Niles is an exceptional book that I would rank in the top 2% of books I have read in the past few years. It is very colorful and informative. I could spend hours just looking at the photographs included in the book. Many of the photos do make me kind of hungry, though. I also enjoyed the sections on fashion and shopping. I would definitely rate this book 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone interested in travelling to, or jus "Bright Lights Paris: Shop, Dine & Live...Parisian Style" by Angie Niles is an exceptional book that I would rank in the top 2% of books I have read in the past few years.

    This is a beautiful book every Paris-lover should have in their bookshelf! There's a chapter for each arrondissement and you get suggestions on where to dine, live and shop, which I found very inspiring and helpful! The book contains so many glossy pictures and short stories- it made me so excited about my upcoming stay in Paris. This is a beautiful book every Paris-lover should have in their bookshelf!

    I loved this book. It was beautifully put together, fun, and interesting. Whether you're planning a trip to Paris or just interested in Parisian culture, this book is not only a great reference, but incredibly enjoyable to look at. You'll find lots of information here about fashion, beauty, recipes, opera, dance, food, shopping, and culture. The list goes on and on. I've been wanting to visit Paris for quite a while, and this book only increased that desire. I highly recommend it. I loved this book. It was beautifully put together, fun, and interesting.

    Love this book! Perfect travel guide for those of us that want to cultivate a distinct type of Parisienne style. Each chapter is broken down by the main neighborhoods such as Latin Quarter, Saint-Germaine, Montmartre, and the Marais where you are guided on what to see and where to shop to develop the unique style of the neighborhood. I will read it again and again before I take my fall trip to Paris!,

    This book wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but it was so fun to browse. I thought it would be more like a travel journal or something, but it was really a guide book. It's full of descriptions of individual places, including shops and restaurants, brimming with gorgeous photos, laden with tips and suggestions, and even includes a few recipes. This was something I checked out from the library, but if I was going to go back to Paris for even a few days, I'd buy it and bring it along.

    A beautiful book on Paris. The writing is very personal and invites you to see Paris thru the author's eyes. The pictures throughout the book are eye candy. If you have been to Paris you will love this book and if you have not been to Paris you will want to go there and take in all the beauty of this City of Lights. A beautiful book on Paris.

    Set up by neighborhoods, this 2015 book is a great visual travel guide as to where to eat, where to shop, and what to see in Paris. The fashion tips are wasted on an old bird like me, but the photos and short snippets about food, restaurants, and what to see/ do were fantastic...and the book is small enough to fit in your purse or backpack.

    This book had wonderful tips about what to visit in each arrondissement, it contained beautiful photography, and was just a lovely introduction to the City of Lights. My only question is: when can I go?

    Best comprehensive modern tour guide for Paris with insider info and recommendations. I was a little worried I'd be let down by the synopsis of this book seeing as I'm not super into fashion, but this book had me hooked with all the descriptions of each neighborhood and references to literature and film.

    Fun and helpful guide for my trip to Paris. Not much reflection of the racial, ethnic or age diversity of the Paris experience, however.

    Painfully coy, ridiculous narration made this almost unbearable to read. The stars are solely for the admittedly stunning photographs.

    This book was wonderful. The only thing I would suggest for the publisher would be to provide an electronic map of all of the great spots! I tried 13-A Baker's Dozen by accident but knew all about it thanks to Angie. Best read if you love neighborhood exploration in a city that is focused on fashion and foodie! Fun fun fun! XOXO!

    Many stock photos, quite uninspired. And the text is atrocious. In the end it is just a dry index, far too incomplete even compared with an old Paris guide.

There's a book list, a few classic recipes, lessons on how to get the Saint-Germaine look and how to tie a scarf and so much more. Be forewarned this is not a travel guide; it doesn't have maps, list websites or phone numbers or give business hours. It's just a fun introduction to Paris complete with photos on almost every page.

    I am just thrilled to have won this book in a Goodreads giveaway! This lushly illustrated book is like taking a tour of Paris -- secret places to go, celebrity favorite spots, French products, culture, foods, etc. Once I sat down to look through the book, I devoured the entire thing in one sitting. For anyone who has ever been to Paris, wants to go to Paris, or is just fascinated with all things French....I cannot recommend this book enough. Truly enjoyable.
