50 Book Challenge: #22 My Life In Black & White

What kobo.com says: When Clara Bishop, a struggling screenwriter-turned-tabloid journalist in Hollywood, is jilted by her philandering husband, she follows him to London, determined to win him back. Armed with only a glamorous wardrobe of vintage clothing inherited from her grandmother, a former film noir actress, Clara discovers that the clothes really do make the woman. Dressed to kill, she adopts a new femme fatale persona: confident, sexy and set on revenge. But on the road to retaliation, Clara discovers an unfinished film script that sheds light on her grandmother’s mysterious death years before. Then it happens: somehow, magically, her whole life is transported back in time, into a living, breathing film noir that reveals to Clara the potential to write her own ending.


I wrote about receiving this book at the Harpers Collins Canada Summer Escapes book launch earlier this summer. I was finally able to devour it over the weekend and absolutely loved it. I love that the book takes you from LA to London and back. I love the twist in the plot and I love the true strong femme fatale main character and how she truly finds her voice and wants after being lost in a relationship. How apropos.


 Although I love my new Kobo that I’ve been reading on since I started here in late April. I do love me a printed book and it was great to curl up with it on a quiet Sunday and read. I also have an affinity for the fact that this book is signed. I’m kind of tickled pink by it.
