A booklover's dream come true...

 "A. J. Fikry, the irascible owner of Island Books, has recently endured some tough years: his wife has died, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and his prized possession--a rare edition of Poe poems--has been stolen. Over time, he has given up on people, and even the books in his store, instead of offering solace, are yet another reminder of a world that is changing too rapidly. Until a most unexpected occurrence gives him the chance to make his life over and see things anew."

I have always been partial to books that are written about bookstores. And this Gabrielle Zevin book is no exception.I truly enjoyed and savored every bit of this book. It was entertaining and just felt real. It's a perfect read for book and bookstore lovers. I immediately went to see other books written by this author, because the writing style was unique and the characters felt like people I could be friends with. I would highly recommend this book! 

*I received this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review*
