one young woman figuring out what she wants out of her life Definitely can recommend that you check this one out now that I ve sat with this for a bit longer I can finally write this review.What a wonderful trip to Paris, and yes I mean this book This is my first time reading anything by Roselle Lin and I was most blown away by her prose From the scenery descriptions, to the vibrant magic that embraces even the mundane What I took away the most was that this novel was unique beyond measure to me The story follows Vanessa Yu and her search to control her predictions Like anyone with some sort of magi now that I ve sat with this for a bit longer I can finally write this review.What a wonderful trip to Paris, and yes I mean this book This is my first time reading anything by Roselle Lin

The story follows Vanessa Yu and her search to control her predictions Like anyone with some sort of magic, she doesn t want it at all She s gone above and beyond to avoid confronting this part of herself that theyso control her Her Aunt Evelyn is also a fortune teller as this gift runs in the family, and has decided that she is willing to try to teach Vanessa again but she must come with her to Paris to do it With her most recent prediction involves the pain of someone she loves, Vanessa s all for it and the two of them leave for the city of love What I will say about how the predictions work and are described by Vanessa to the reader is one that will leave you hungry forIt s something I ve never read before and now I can t think of them any other way Once arriving she s immersed in the magic that is Paris and at this point in the book it s immersed in magical realism I haven t read too many novels in that particular style but the ones I have I love it and this book is no exception The flight of the blue butterflies, the threads of fate, transitions of the present to a filter overlapping the past It s beautiful Roselle has a way with words that leaves you feeling like you are in the clouds at sunset The story progresses with her training, matchmaking against her aunt s behest, and exploring a maybe love of her own I truly adored this read, the only thing I wasn t keen on was how the ending felt a bit abrupt It s one of those things I can t really put my finger on and say this should ve been different because then we might have a totally different ending However, I do feel like some of the resolution could have been fleshed out Other than that, and honestly not that big of a deal, this was a fantastic story and helped me out a slump I was in I would recommend this to anyone who loves traveling through books, being in love with love, food, and finding a different path than the one that was given to you Thank you to the Berkley Publishing Group and

headaches whenever they come Eventually, Vanessa was given the chance to come with her Aunt Evelyn in Paris, as her aunt also has the ability of clairvoyance and she can teach her how to control her

has delivered the same descriptive way of writing that makes me feel like I am actually there with her Also, I was attracted to explore the themes as hinted at in the blurb I don t usually dabble in magical realism, but Vanessa Yu s Magical Paris Tea Shop delivered something special.Characters connections Vanessa Yu s also introduced an amazing selection of characters I tend to get lost when there are many people within a book, especially like Vanessa s family However, Roselle Lim has created vibrant characters with personalities that leap off the page I felt connected with each of them and everything that they stand for.Everything I liked When I think about the things I liked about this book, so many things come to mind that it s so hard to decide where to start I guess I can begin with what this book made me feel I had a craving for a read that is simple but immersive and this definitely had that Vanessa Yu s felt like a cultural immersion with the traditions, beliefs, and delicious food And then, it took me on an adventure to Paris a place I have always dreamed of going Again, I have to commend how beautiful Roselle Lim writes She paints vivid pictures of scenes that you can t help but imagine being there in the flesh with all of the characters Paris is one of my dream destinations, and I felt like Vanessa Yu brought me along for the ride.Overall thoughts I don t know if it s the theme of the book or just my mood, but I loved this book better than the author s debut novel Vanessa Yu s Magical Paris Tea Shop combined everything that I love in my reads I got that signature Asian family drama, culture, food, travel, romance, mystery, adventure, and a dash of magic to give me that extra boost Can t wait to read the author s future works My Book Rating
