Abbi Waxman s creation, the book obsessed 29 year old Nina Lee Hill was an absolute joy for me to spend time with, particularly with the mass of literary and cultural references littered throughout this wonderful piece of contemporary fiction with all its comic humour Set in the offbeat district of Larchmont, LA, Nina works at the independent bookstore, Knights, established in the 1940s It s the best fit for Nina, an OCD over planner, so Monica from Friends is obviously her favourite character Nina is smart, sarcastic, socially awkward and anxious for whom spontaneity and the unexpected throws her for a loop books are at the top of the list in her 5 perfect things, they are medication, sanctuary and the source of all good things, nothing has yet proven her wrong and it s little wonder libraries are her idea of heave 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 the writing style that Waxman uses Reminiscent of a 19th century novel, complete with witty glimpses of what is to transpire at the start of each chapter There s a dry sense of humor to this book He didn t remind her of herself, but, to be fair, she was a slender 29 year old woman with dark red shirted and freckles, and he had been a rounded old man with white hair and wrinkles, so it wasn t exactly apples to apples More like grapes to raisins And that s a quote from the book I can include One of the funnier ones would probably be banned by GR Thi
