I read this book in one day because I simply had to find out what was in store for A.J. Fikry. To me, this is a story about how sometimes the unexpected things in life are just what you need to turn things around. It is also a story about the power of love. I don't want to reveal too much about the plot, but I will tell you that if you love books, bookstores and reading (and I assume you do or you wouldn't be reading this blog), this book will appeal to you. It definitely made me wish that I owned my own small town bookstore.
I would recommend this book to book lovers and of course, to book clubs.
