Rating: 4.5/5 stars.

If like me, you love the film, then I suggest you grab a copy of this book and read it. It is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.

I do wish I‘d had the presence of mind to collect books in the manner that you do. I think it‘s so nice to have certain favorite things to collect, and fun!

Having just finished the book I wanted to watch the movie again. This classic has really stood the test of time. Audrey Hepburn made a very polished Holly Golightly. The movie made a few changes and Hollywoodized the ending but overall a good interpretation of the book. The anniversary copy that I had included some entertaining behind the scenes segments. I am now inspired to watch some more Audrey Hepburn movies.

Liatrek Love Audrey ❤️ I highly recommend Roman Holiday, Sabrina and Charade 😊 3mo
CafeMom @Liatrek thanks for the movie recommendations. 3mo

Lovely novella about Holly Golightly and her neighbor “Fred“ in 1950s New York. I can see how this story was modern for the time. Holly is a very entertaining character and I enjoyed learning her back story. Looking forward to re-watching the movie. This is my 4th book by the author and I enjoy his writing. #1001books

I've decided I love the way Capote writes, this paragraph being an example of why.
Ranking the stories in this collection:
1) Breakfast at Tiffany's
2) A Christmas Memory
3) House of Flowers
4) A Diamond Guitar

Basically all these stories will break your heart. 💗

This has been on my tbr for so long and it felt like the right time to read it after reading Swan Song. I do love Capotes writing but the story itself didn‘t really grab me. It didn‘t feel very memorable. I actually preferred House of Flowers that‘s included in the book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #foodorbeverageoncover #booked2019

THOUGHTS | I found this to be a charming, bittersweet read; being quite a fan of Truman Capote‘s writing style (though the only other work of his I‘ve read is the captivating In Cold Blood), I enjoyed diving once more into his lush words and plot lines. The characters are finely drawn, though still with an air of ambiguity, and the tense atmospheres created are palpable. Some touches of racism given the times; nevertheless an enjoyable book. | 4/5

⭐️⭐️ “Now, I ain‘t sayin‘ she a gold digger” .... actually, yeah. I am. Holiday “Holly” Golightly is a beautiful, charismatic opportunist and a fraud. As expected, Capote‘s writing is fantastic, but I detested its “American Geisha.” I appreciate that for a book published in the late 1950s, Golightly‘s language and behavior is quite brazen, but even that couldn‘t save the story for me.

Ariana Grande wrote the song #7rings after she splurged on her best friends. "Twas a pretty rough day in nyc," Grande said of how her friends inspired the song. "My friends took me to tiffany's. we had too much champagne. i bought us all rings.”

Immediately reminded me of the tagged book and the scene from the film.

I got new book mail today! But since I'm too tired to unbox it, I'll just drop in this #unpopularopinion review lol. I honestly hated this #novella. I felt like nothing happened, Holly was not a redeemable character, & the writing didn't age well at all.🤷🏽‍♀️ I know everyone loves the movie, mainly because of Audrey Hepburn, but this is one of the few times I think the movie is probably better than the book. #audio #audible #audiobook #classics

Book #2 complete! Michael C. Hall performed this #Audible beautifully, but not a bit surprising, eh? This was my first exposure to Breakfast at Tiffany‘s beyond classic images of Hepburn in pearls and dark glasses. Clearly this is from a different era but I was caught off guard with so much language showcasing once pervasive demonstration of “isms”. I am glad I read it for cultural context but I cannot say I enjoyed it.

BlameJennyJane That‘s reassuring @readordierachel . I‘m a tad surprised that no one had ever shared with me that it was anything but a charming story. I do know some about Capote and his work, so I didn‘t think “charming” seemed terribly likely. Now it all makes sense. 10mo

Truman Capote‘s writing is truly beautiful. If you don‘t look to closely at this book, it may seem like it‘s not about anything at all really. But I love that everything is so much deeper than it seems here. Holly‘s character also seems frivolous and superficial at first, but as you learn more about her you find out that she‘s so much sadder and more complex than she initially appears.
