Wow, my last two book in hand reads have been…I’ll call it now…two of my favorites reads of the year! I loved this book and could not put it down…I just wanted to read, read, read and find out what was going to happen next! Again, a smidge of magic with a solid storyline and I’m in love. My next read has some tough competition ( )

The Lost Bookshop was a delightful summer diversion. I was drawn in by the intertwined stories of Opaline and Martha. Who was the mysterious Madame Bowden? Would love to hear your thoughts. ( )

A mysterious vanishing bookshop and the women who’s lives it touches throughout time.
To be honest, the magical realism bits were a touch confusing, didn’t quite understand what was going on but I like the bookish content.
The males POV felt totally superfluous.
Deals a lot with domestic & familial abuse.
Would probably make a decent movie. ( )

This was the strangest book I have ever read. With every chapter involving a different character it was difficult to follow this story. ( )

Dedicated "To all the book lovers" which certainly includes me, the book has been well received - yet, while I enjoyed passages of the work, the overall impression left me largely unmoved. The three main characters I get, the short chapters worked well, the converging story lines were largely obvious, but the time shifts and quasi science fiction elements left me nonplussed. ( )

The rainy streets of Dublin on a cold winter's day were no place for a young boy to dawdle, unless that very same boy had his nose pressed up against the window of the most fascinating bookshop.
