    Bookshop of Yesterdays was a story I didn't want to see end. Twists and plot turns that I did NOT see coming, terrible accidents, love affairs, and BOOKS! A great story of perseverance, heartbreak, new love, old love, sibling rivalry, books, death, secrets, books, history, family, dedi...

    Books about books are just mesmerizing. Even if they're not particularly amazing, something about the premise always seems so magical, yet comfortable...like you're greeting an old friend. And even though The Bookshop of Yesterdays didn't wow me, it was still a little bit like this. ...

    I received an advanced uncorrected copy from NetGalley for an honest review. The Bookshop of Yesterdays is about Miranda, a history teacher on the east coast who's estranged uncle dies and leaves her not only his bookstore in LA but also the clues to a family mystery. The premise is ...

    I am predisposed to love books that feature bookshops, but this book has earned it's rightful place in my heart. After her once beloved but now estranged uncle passes, Miranda inherits Prospero Books, which is floundering to keep it's doors open. Her uncle has left her more than a book...

    ???? Four Bookish Stars! A book about books and a bookshop? Yes please! I thought this was brilliant. The mystery has enough time to bulid and you can't stop turning the pages until you find out what it is. The ending is a surprising one and I loved all the scavenger-hu...

    This novel was a dark horse for me. I requested it from NetGalley because I wanted a small respite from the more noir/darker mysteries that I've been reading lately. I expected it to be much fluffier than it was. THE BOOKSHOP OF YESTERDAYS is a lovely, smart novel that followed a young...

    3.5 stars Miranda inherits a bookshop from an uncle she hasn't seen for 16 years. Before that time they used to be close and she never understood what had happened to change that. The book starts off very well, but halfway the story it loses energy. Some of the characters are very sel...

    2 stars--it was OK. What I liked: The bookstore setting and literary "clues" were fun. The author clearly loves books and reading, and that shows. What I didn't like: The main character, Miranda, was selfish and unlikable. Why was she with her boyfriend? They seemed to despise ea...

    A memorable debut that reads like a love song to books and the people that adore them. Amy Meyerson blends family drama and a cast of characters so smoothly that I found this book really difficult to put down. Miranda Brooks is a middle school history teacher, living in Philadelphi...

    I received this as an ARC and I can?t wait for it to come out June 2018 so I can begin recommending it to everyone. Working in a bookstore, the cover and title first caught my eye, but the story really caught my attention. It has mystery, drama, its fair share of family issues, and a...

    This was a great story but it lost its momentum for me a bit in parts, then it would pick back up again. The writing was very good, I enjoyed the setting of the bookshop and the scavenger hunt Miranda was on in order to learn the truth of what happened to her estranged Uncle. I give th...

    I really wanted to love this book; I just felt a little off about it. I found the scavenger hunt part intriguing and clever, but a little too dragged out at times. For the most part, I liked the character of Miranda, but had she been a friend of mine in real life, I might have slapped ...
