Review: The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman

Here is a summary of what the book is about. Meet Nina Hill: A young woman supremely confident in her own... shell. The only child of a single mother, Nina has her life just as she wants it: a job in a bookstore, a kick-butt trivia team, a world-class planner and a cat named Phil. If she sometimes suspects there might be more to life than reading, she just shrugs and picks up a new book.

When the father Nina never knew existed suddenly dies, leaving behind innumerable sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews, Nina is horrified. They all live close by! They're all-or mostly all-excited to meet her! She'll have to Speak. To. Strangers. It's a disaster! And as if that wasn't enough, Tom, her trivia nemesis, has turned out to be cute, funny, and deeply interested in getting to know her. Doesn't he realize what a terrible idea that is?

Nina considers her potions. 1. Completely change her name and appearance. (Too drastic, plus she likes her hair.) 2. Flee to a deserted island. (Hard pass, see: coffee). 3. Hide in a corner of her apartment and rock back and forth. (Already doing it.)

It's time for Nina to come out of her comfortable shell, but she isn't convinced real life could ever live up to fiction. It's going to take a brand-new family, a persistent suitor, and the combined effects of ice cream and trivia to make her turn her own fresh page.

I absolutely loved this book. It's the kind of book that grabs you from the very first page. I also love the cover of this book. Yes I am one of those people who picks books to read that have pretty or cute covers.

I can totally relate to the character Nina because she is a planner just like me. I love that she works in a bookstore. I thought the book was written very well. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.

Happy Reading Everyone!

To get into the Christmas season I am reading Christmas Jars by Jason F Wright. I heard that there was a movie playing in some theaters not all a month ago. I didn’t get to see it because it wasn’t playing any where near me. I will be posting a review soon.

Review: Pumpkin Everything by Beth Labonte

Here is a summary of what the book is about. After calling off her fall wedding, horror novelist Amy Fox is left with a broken heart, a mega case of writer's block, and a serious aversion to all things pumpkin spice. When she receives news that her grandfather has broken his wrist driving through a Dunkin Donuts- literally straight through the front windows- five hundred miles away, in her hometown of Autumnboro, New Hampshire, Amy has no choice but to return to check on him. If she doesn't make sure that he's back on his feet, Grandpa may be moved into assisted living, and Amy's beloved childhood home will be put on the market.

Knowing she must return, Amy worries about the only thing worse than pumpkin spice- a reunion with Kit Parker- her childhood best friend, first love, and entire reason for skipping town in the first place. As the two reconnect, a second chance seems possible... if only Kit weren't holding on to a secret that just might unravel everything.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It is the perfect book to read for fall. I did not want the story to end. I thought it was well written. I just love happy endings. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.

Happy Reading Everyone!
