Book Review: The Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts By Annie Darling


A quaint old bookshop, where happy ever after is only a page away…

Once upon a time in a crumbling bookshop, Posy Morland hid in the pages of romantic novels.

So when Bookend’s eccentric owner, Lavinia, dies and leaves the shop to Posy, she must put down her books and join the real world. Because Posy hasn’t just inherited an ailing business, but also the attentions of Lavinia’s grandson, Sebastian, AKA The Rudest Man In London™.

Posy has six months to transform Bookends into the shop of her dreams but as Posy and her friends fight to save the bookshop, she’s drawn into a battle of wills with Sebastian, about whom she’s started to have some rather feverish fantasies…


Review written in January 2017:

First book I’ve read in a long time that I found just so perfect. I must admit I didn’t find this book as I normally find my books (via browsing on the internet)

I stopped by a bookstore and noticed the beautiful cover and it did entice me in. I know they say don’t judge a book by its cover but it is a good marketing strategy for it to be this pretty. Not only was the book ascetically pleasing but the plot seemed so perfect. 

A book lover that’s awkward inherits a cute little bookshop. In London but has the best of both living in a city but village like vibe where it was set!? Yes please. I loved all of the characters quirky ness and the humour they had. I just loved this book a lot and it’s not often I give books 5 stars. Check it out because you really won’t regret it. Also, if the author ever reads this, keep up the work.

5/5 stars
