The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan + a Giveaway

Good morning, readers! Today I'm a stop on the TLC blog tour for Jenny Colgan's latest, The Bookshop on the Corner.

Thanks to budget cuts, Nina Redmond is out of a job. And it's a job she'd loved, working as a librarian and pairing readers with the perfect book for any situation. With her apartment bursting at the seams with books, Nina knows she has to do something. And so an idea is formed: a bookshop. Not just any bookshop, a mobile bookshop. But realizing the dream turns out to be much more complicated than Nina would have thought!

Jenny Colgan's latest is a book lover's book. It's sweet and a bit whimsical, packed with book recommendations and situations any true book junkie can definitely relate to. (While my husband has never threatened to leave me over the amount of books in the house, the images of Nina's collection endangering the very stability of her flat were enough to make me cringe in recognition!)

It felt almost indulgent to dive into this one. It was such a comforting and welcoming read - a feel good read for sure, but more than that as well. I felt a kinship with Nina and an admiration for her. As hurdle after hurdle was thrown at her, I rallied alongside her waiting to see if and how she'd conquer each challenge and if her dreams would really come true.

Colgan's humor is infectious. That sweet whimsy mentioned above, paired with enough giggle worthy moments definitely helped in making this a book I could get lost in. And I wouldn't be lying if I said that I was a little envious of Nina's adventure as well!

The Bookshop On the Corner is such a fun read, sheer entertainment packed with heart and books!

It has been a long time since I've read a book that makes me laugh - this should be fixed asap I think!

Thanks for being a part of the tour.
