Hello, my name is Kelly and I welcome you to the Bookend Diaries book blog. I created this blog to share my own reviews of existing and new books, to discuss with other readers what we’re currently reading, update you on my book club picks, and of course, to ultimately support the work of the authors we all enjoy. I am addicted to reading and I thought this would be a great way to reach out to other readers who are as obsessed with books as I am.

How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World: The Art of Living with Style, Class, and Grace by Jordan Christy

To honor Audrey Hepburn’s birthday, I have a special treat to share with all of you. This is a charming book that will remind you of her grace and style and elegance. This is a special gem of a book that you will treasure.

***A Gift From The Publisher


In a society driven by celebutante news and myspace profiles, women of class, style and charm are hard to come by. The Audrey and Katharines of the world continue to lose their lustre as thongs, rehab and outrageous behaviour burn up the daily headlines. But, despite appearances, guys still want a girl they can take home to their mother, employers still like to see a tailored suit and peers still respect classy conduct. So is it possible to maintain old fashioned virtues in a modern world without looking like a starchy Amish grandma? Christy shows women how in this guide to glamorous style, professional success and true love...the classy way. Full of fun assignments, notable names and real-life examples, Christy offers a new look at seemingly 'old fashioned' advice. She covers diet, speech, work ethic, friends, relationships, manners, makeup and fashionable yet modest clothing, showing modern ladies how they can be beautiful, intelligent and fun while retaining values and morals.


  1. I love it. There is, I believe, a place we can inhabit that is to the right of Hilton, the left of grandma, and centered in gracious, stylish living.

  2. Sounds like a great book!
