Book of the week.

I know it's Friday and I should of done this post on Monday, better late then never. This week's book of the week is a cult classic and from this book my favorite movie was made, Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's. There is so much to love about this classic book, I could go on and on. 

Breakfast at Tiffany's is the story of Holly Golightly, a very mysterious New York socialite in the 1960's. You'll fall in love with Holly, her sense of style, her cat named Cat and her cleaver demeanor.

 Capote's writing captures classic New York and most of all he really captures the feeling that you get when you enter Tiffany's on 57th and 5th Avenue. Tiffany's really is a magical place, I've been very lucky working right across the street from this famous establishment and being able to wander over there on my lunch hours, to dream and window shop. 

You'll be able to read this book in a day and I'm telling you it is such a great classic. After you've read the book check out the movie staring fashion and movie icon Audrey Hepburn, she'll mesmerize you. 

Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of those books you can read over and over again and never get tired of it, which is a testament to Truman Capote's writing. 

After writing this post I feel I need a Tiffany's fix, I guess the website will do for now. 

Happy Reading!
