    Charming! Nina Hill is a delightful bookish introvert who I?d love to have for a friend. Engaging and sweet, with wit and humor, this was a comfort read for me. I loved Nina?s daily planner at the start of each chapter. She works in a bookstore, has a cat named Phil, and has a r...

    Library overdrive ... Audiobook... read by Emily Rankin... ...ebook alternating. This is the second time I?ve read a book by Abbi Waxman. I was quite harsh in my review of ?The Garden of Small Beginnings?, but it honestly matched how I felt about it. I gave it a 1.5 rating...

    Nina works at a bookstore and she has a full schedule of reading, taking care of her cat and work. She really is happy doing just those things. Nina resisted the impulse to pull out her imaginary blaster and blow the woman's head off, and got a microflash of the bit in Termina...

    How could I resist a book about a bookworm? Not just a bookworm, but an only child bookworm that finds solace and peace in books, a child whose mother is absent and father is unknown. Well, until a lawyer appears informing Nina her father had died and she has half-siblings. I love t...

    4 Fabulous Stars. A Novel for the Book Lover in All of Us! Yes, it?s true, I loved Nina Hill. Perhaps it?s because I identified with her so much (no shock there!). Truthfully, I think most of us who like to read will (Hello, fellow book friends). I am single, I live alone and...

    3.5 stars (I have to round up since I love making lists and of course, I?m bookish.) The truth is that many of us are like Nina Hill and live bookish lives. We might not be as quirky and maybe not as smart (I know I?m not), but there?s so much about the bookish part that?s r...

    This was a delight from start to finish. Books, reading, Larchmont. What?s not to love. Not only was I able to identify with Nina to some degree, I was able to imagine everything she did in the book, having lived in Los Angeles for so long and spending numerous hours on Larchmont Blv...

    4.5 stars. It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me or follows me on any of my social media feeds that reading is one of the most immense joys of my life. Whenever I am asked by someone how I read so many books, I explain in part that reading helps me decompress?days w...

    4 Stars! It also meant she thought of books as medication and sanctuary and the source of all good things. Nothing yet had proven her wrong. This is such a cute story! Be sure to read this one - if you are a bookworm you will truly appreciate Nina! Nina is a book worm and is...

    I received this book for free from the publisher (Berkley Publishing) in exchange for an honest review. I absolutely loved this book! It was everything! To start, I obviously loved the bookish aspect of it. Like chapter sixteen, when she describes her bookshelves?.just wow. Thi...

    Cute! Cute! Cute! And a tasty dash of fun! Nina feels life is just how it should be. Organized, clutter free and filled with everything she enjoys! She works at a bookshop, plays trivia on a team with her friends. And comes home to her faithful cat Phil who brings her presents in th...

    This book, to me, was perfection. Beautiful story, astoundingly-relatable and charming characters that I could not get enough of, lovely fairytale-esque atmosphere and elegant writing style. Sometimes authors just mention that a character is a bookworm, hoping that the reader instantly...

    Everyone is talking about how much they relate to Nina Hill and I didn't at all. Am I the weirdo here? His cat is named Mom? Now that's weird. To me, it was just too much. It's like, okay you can wear the unicorn t-shirt, but when you pair it with the cat leggings, the orange C...

    The subject matter of this book seemed like a perfect fit to my tastes, seeing as how I identify so closely with the main character, Nina Hill. Just like Nina, I would much rather sit in a comfy chair with a beloved pet nearby curled up with a book and some coffee, than doing most anyt...

    Some parts of the story I liked, some parts I didn't. There were quite a few things about Nina I could relate to though which is always nice when you are able to feel a connection to the character. Nina Hill is an only child and was raised mostly by her nanny as her single mother w...

    I actually laughed out loud several times while reading this book and that's a rarity for me. Nina Hill really has most of her life put together so tightly that there is no room for dating or any other deviation from her very organized schedule. Even her one free evening that has "noth...

    "I mean, I get that the universe whirls in mysterious yada yada, but wouldn't you rather travel the world?" "No, I'd rather stay home and read." Nina Hill's life is perfect as it is, thank you very much. She has an adorable little apartment, a fabulous job at a local book...

    Oh my gosh Nina Hill, what is not to like about you? Nina Hill has it going on- or that is what she tells herself. Actually she does! She is totally content with her life she has built herself and I love it. This book was so fun, witty, sometimes a bit snarky and it was so entertaining...
