This Week: Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote

I hate to admit it, but I have never read this book! As an Audrey Hepburn fan, I love the movie – its one of my go-tos on rainy days. I recently bought my own copy and aim to read it before the end of 2018. I didn’t even realize it was actually a novella.
First published in 1958, they would go on to release the movie in 1961: Holly Golightly being one of Hepburn’s most iconic roles.
I have dressed up as Golightly twice for costume parties: the first being for what she was most remembered by: black dress, black hat, pearls and cigarette holder; the second as the wardrobe from the end scene with “cat” even making an appearance. The funny thing is, I hate Halloween and dressing up but any excuse to be Audrey Hepburn for the day and I am in.
My best friend is also a book lover. In this picture our costume theme was “literary characters.” She went as Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s quotes: “What I’ve found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany’s. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there.”
“Never love a wild thing…If you let yourself love a wild thing. You’ll end up looking at the sky.”
“I don’t mean I’d mind being rich and famous. That’s very much on my schedule and someday I’ll try to get around to it.”

I came across this book after reading DJ Empress’ review on her blog, Books and Bindings, and knew I would probably enjoy it! As you know, or will now know, I am a sucker for sugary romances – and a series to boot!Read More »
