    Shout out to this fabulous book in my latest YouTube Video all about my favorite bookish books and while I attempt a little baking in the background Thanks for watching and happy reading The Written Review This book spoke to my soul Because every day with a book is slightly better than one without, and I wish you nothing but the happiest of daysNina Redmond is my favorite kind of main character she feels like a best friend A very bookish best friend The best possible ki Shout out to this fabulous book in my latest YouTube Video all about my favorite bookish books and while I attempt a little baking in the background Thanks for watching and happy reading The Written Review This book spoke to my soul Because every day with a book is slightly better than one without, and I wish you nothing but the happiest of daysNina Redmond is my favorite kind of main character she feels like a best friend A very bookish best friend The best possible kind of best friend.Nina is was a librarian Her job was her everything She spent every waking moment, caring for all of the little library books, curling up with a new novel every night and most importantly, helping people find the book that they needed the most Books were her everything for Nina, whenever reality, or the grimmer side of reality, threatened to invade, she always turned to a bookThey had mended her heart when it was broken, and encouraged her to hope when she was downBut all that vanished All that comfort and security from her library job snuffed out And Nina is just reeling and the midst of her panic, she comes to a realization with the help of her friend Just do something You might make a mistake, then you can fix it But if you do nothing, you can t fix anything And your life might turn out full of regrets. So, armed with an unwieldy old van and farbooks than one can imagine, Nina sets off to explore the countryside selling her books at farmers markets and festivals, all the while blossoming from a shy, timid librarian to the woman she was always meant to be.I absolutely adored this story The romance was so well done it was one of those romances where you fall in love with the way they re falling in love And the books so many booksjust cinched the novel for me I want to go out and check out every last book from the library that Nina suggests As an aside, I loved the way the author dedicated the book There is no dedication in this book because the entire book is dedicated to you the reader To all readers.Because this book is about reading and books, and how these things can change your life, always, I would argue, for the better.

    The Bookshop on the corner by Jenny Colgan is a 2016 William Morrow Paperbacks publication The title alone was enough to catch my eye I love books about books and this one will truly resonate with people like me, who live and breathe books, no matter what genre you prefer When Nina loses her beloved job at the library, she finds the courage to start her life over using her expert skills of matching people with books She buys a van and moves to Scotland and becomes a successful book seller The Bookshop on the corner by Jenny Colgan is a 2016 William Morrow Paperbacks publication The title alone was enough to catch my eye I love books about books and this one will truly resonate with people like me, who live and breathe books, no matter what genre you prefer When Nina loses her beloved job at the library, she finds the courage to start her life over using her expert skills of matching people with books She buys a van and moves to Scotland and becomes a successful book seller But, the journey is fraught with setbacks, adjustments, and a flood of personal turmoil as she settles into a small Scottish community and begins spreading the love of books and reading with the folks who live there Nina s character slowly blossoms, as she faces a few hard knocks, and meets those challenges withfortitude than she thought possible Her adventures are often hilarious, sometimes poignant, but her kindness and honesty touches an entire community, as well as the heart of a certain gentleman, making her a true inspiration This feel good story naturally appealed to the book lover in me Nina and I, could be two peas in a pod, and I instantly related to her, often smiling and nodding when her exuberance for books popped off the page While I took great pleasure in watching Nina tirelessly spread the gift of books to her isolated community, the story evolves into something , proving that people can work together to resolve problems if only they would try to see things from a perspective other than their own It s also about having the courage to pursue your dreams, for not settling or giving up, no matter how bleak things seem at the time All the characters are slightly quirky, and are well drawn, with compelling stories of the their own, adding much depth, charm, and warmth to this delightful tale This is a quick and easy read, is very light hearted and witty, and is sure to lift your spirits and solidify your love of reading and books and of course recommending them to all your friends, family and community Overall, anyone will like this book, I think, but contemporary romance readers and chick lit fans will definitely want to check this one out 4 stars

    Full review now posted below I love books with all of my heart Most kids sleep with stuffed animals, but I slept with some book or another even before I could read them for myself I was born with an intense love for words and the worlds that writers can craft with them Because of that fervent adoration for all things books, I delight in finding books about books Sadly though,often than not the books about books that I pick up tend to leave me disappointed There are a few exceptions, o Full review now posted below I love books with all of my heart Most kids sleep with stuffed animals, but I slept with some book or another even before I could read them for myself I was born with an intense love for words and the worlds that writers can craft with them Because of that fervent adoration for all things books, I delight in finding books about books Sadly though,often than not the books about books that I pick up tend to leave me disappointed There are a few exceptions, of course The Shadow of the Wind, The Neverending Story, and Inkheart being a few that made me so happy that my heart felt as though surely it would burst But others, such as Mr Penumbra s 24 Hour Bookstore, Fangirl, and this one, all left me feeling unsatisfied The first set of books were truly odes to the power of books Books were conveyed as important, friends to be treasured and revisited as often as possible The second set of books I listed started out that way But, eventually, books cease being viewed as treasures and are viewed instead as crutches, things only clung to by those who aren t truly living their own lives and thus have to live vicariously through the stories of others I disagree with that view of books vehemently Yes, books are a safe place to turn to when you re lonely or in pain I can logically agree that books are sometimes used as crutches to help us get through life My problem with that line of thinking is this what on earth is wrong with crutches I would rather have something to lean on that helps me walk steadily and securely through my life than hobble because I m too proud to use a crutch Besides that, in the words of George R.R Martin, A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies The man who never reads lives only one Now, onto the actual book I m supposed to be reviewing The Bookshop on the Corner was really cute, especially through the first half Nina, our main character, was faced with a huge change in her life, and she made the most of it by embracing her love of books and her dream of fostering that love in others by opening her own book shop Her bookshop wasn t conventional, and neither was the community she moved to in order to open it, but it suited her well She had a cast of cute and sometimes crazy friends and patrons who for the most part were incredibly supportive Nina s favorite thing in the world was literary matchmaking, pairing a person with the perfect book for where they were in their life That is, until love derailed her life Those of you who have read this, I hope you liked my pun there And that s where the book let me down, where it shifted from a love story about books to just being a love story with a few books scattered here and there And the love story was my most hated trope, a love triangle Both guys were cute and all, I just can t stand love triangles for some reason They make my lip curl Also, I ve become spoiled to the phenomenal writing found in fantasy nowadays, and the writing in this book fell flat for me comparatively This story was light and cute and sweet, but it just felt like consuming empty calories

    This is a really lovely read and I cannot think of anything I didn t like about it It is the story of Nina, a Librarian who is made redundant from her job in Birmingham, who starts a new life for herself by buying a van in Scotland and transforming it into a mobile bookshop.The characters are all people you just cannot help liking and Nina herself is someone you would just love to be friends with in real life I adored the setting in the Scottish Highlands which are beautifully described, espec This is a really lovely read and I cannot think of anything I didn t like about it It is the story of Nina, a Librarian who is made redundant from her job in Birmingham, who starts a new life for herself by buying a van in Scotland and transforming it into a mobile bookshop.The characters are all people you just cannot help liking and Nina herself is someone you would just love to be friends with in real life I adored the setting in the Scottish Highlands which are beautifully described, especially the scenery although the Highland dancing and the Midsummer Festival celebrations were fantastic to read about The author just made me want to cram a load of books into our camper van and head off up there myself to start my own bookshop It is a story which just oozes romance of the non predictable kind you are really kept guessing for quite a large part of the read as to what is going to happen There is the lovely mix of misunderstandings and red herrings, which really kept my interest throughout.It is a definite curl up on the sofa read, one you can totally lose yourself in Highly recommended Many thanks to the publisher via Netgalley for the review copy

    Oh dear oh dear oh dear I checked this book out from the library because it sounded kind of like my life For me, everything changed when I had to leave my job at an independent bookstore and then when it closed down for good I had a great memory for where each book was, often what it looked like, who wrote it, what series it was in, what order the series went in, authors pseudonyms, and what books people might like if they liked this book or that My favourite was giving recommendations, hel Oh dear oh dear oh dear I checked this book out from the library because it sounded kind of like my life For me, everything changed when I had to leave my job at an independent bookstore and then when it closed down for good I had a great memory for where each book was, often what it looked like, who wrote it, what series it was in, what order the series went in, authors pseudonyms, and what books people might like if they liked this book or that My favourite was giving recommendations, helping people find just the right book for a friend in the hospital with depression or child about to become a big brother or sister When I left to give birth it was a huge adjustment to be home all of the time with a baby who wanted to eat nonstop and would only sleep in my arms My world shrunk by the day, especially once we got down to one working car Now with my girl in Kindergarten, I am being told by doctors that I will never work again So I thought this book might cheer me up, give me some inspiration, etc.And it did, at first I could identify with Nina from the beginning, though not with her obsession with Heathcliffe and Christian Gray, who I consider to be dangerous criminals in need of locking up, not romantic heroes Despite apparently having been around the block a time or two and in her 30s, Nina seemsnaive and childish than I was as a 23 year old virgin bride I completely understand her love of books and her huge hoard of them, of course I have an entire room in my house dedicated to nothing else But she is somehow able to sell all of her books once she realizes there s a profit to be made What kind of real book fanatic could do that unless they were on the verge of starvation or something So Nina loses her library job in Birmingham, spends everything she s got to buy a van in Scotland and of course ends up moving there, getting an amazingly designed, perfect apartment in a barn for next to nothing Oh, and it comes with a tall handsome Scotsman who has a sweet dog and adorable lambs But of course, he s also a jerk who doesn t like books or English city girls and never fails to be gruff or downright rude.The business takes off immediately because it s that kind of book, despite the fact that Nina names her mobile bookshop The Little Shop of Happy Ever After which makes me want to puke , and everything is just peachy, except that Nina can t see the mysterious dark Latvian train engineer dude she s projected fictional characters onto often enough to suit her But her landlord calls her over to deliver stuck twin lambs because she is the only one around with small enough hands That just didn t seem likely to me I don t like you, you re useless, you re dangerous, but come over here and soap up and shove your hands up inside my ewe Right.Basically, what I found annoying about this book is that no matter how awkward and idiotic Nina is, everything she does always works out She loves literally everything about where she lives in Scotland sorry, but there are down sides to everywhere Her book recommendations, even when absurdly personal to the point of being potentially insulting, all turn out better than normalit just goes on It was still a pleasant enough read though, until about the last quarter.SPOILERSNaturally there is something wrong with the handsome sad foreigner he already has a family back home You begin to realize this is a weird retelling of Pride and Prejudice and he was Mr Wickham Which makes the landlord, Lennox, Mr Darcy sigh There s even a bunch of stuff about dancing and not dancing, and you also get to see that Lennox is nicer than he seems, though he still talks in a pretty unfriendly way.When Lennox s ex shows up and demands the farm, she is over the top, completely silly and out of place even in this unrealistic book She even throws a rare priceless book of Nina s into the mud So Nina offers to give up her lovely apartment in the barn and move in with Lennox, who she is now sleeping with nonstop By this point that is pretty much all she does They don t talk, they have nothing in common to talk about, but they don t need to talk because their connection is suddenly so deep Yeah bloody right To me this is the laziest trick in the book And it furthers what I think is a dangerous myth, that sex is the same thing as true love Also the one that if someone is rude, hurtful, and has nothing in common with us, they must be our soulmate We re supposed to be happy because Nina gets to constantly have sex with her grumpy boyfriend who only reads the occasional agriculture magazine Seriously, how long is that going to work out It definitely doesn t seem like the kind of happy ever after Nina was looking for.Oh, and Nina ends up getting a new copy of the rare and priceless book the ex destroyed And she loses the apartment but her best friend moves into it So absolutely nothing is lost or sacrificed unless you count a diseased tree Nothing whatever mars her happiness ever I am thoroughly disgusted

    This book was a fun fast read that was a love letter to book lovers everywhere A book seller with a book van instead of a shop , a small quaint town , handsome guy , and tons of books equals a recipe for love It was cute and fast if I hadn t been so busy I could have read it in one sitting.
