Description

Loveday Cardew prefers books to people, and her job in a York bookshop is her refuge. If you look carefully, you might see the first lines of the novels she loves the most tattooed on her skin, but there are secrets Loveday will never share.

Into the bookshop come a poet, a lover, a friend and three mysterious deliveries, each of which stirs unsettling memories she wants to forget. Turning the pages of her past will be the hardest thing Loveday has ever done. Can she trust those around her? Can she right a heartbreaking wrong? And will she find the words to tell her own story?

Beautiful

I mostly enjoy mysteries and crime novels and although this book does have its own secrets to tell - it's a bit different to my normal book.

This book has found a way into my heart, so much so, that I'll be purchasing the hard copy to keep. The author has a mastery of words and humor and the deepest part of the how and why of her characters behaviors.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Worth It

This story is gut-wrenching in parts, but ultimately hopeful. So good I listened straight through. Narration is excellent. Well worth a credit.

Loved it!

I absolutely adored this book. I rarely find a book that I care so much about, but these characters and this story will never leave me. The author definitely knows how to win the heart of the reader. I look forward to listening to it again, and again!

Really enjoyed this book.

Love Imogen Church as a narrator. Looked for books narrated by her since I liked other books she has narrated and found Lost for Words. The title fits the main character Loveday perfectly. The characters and story left me wanting more.

Couldn't finish

I think this could have been a very nice story but at the beginning of each chapter is a long list of letters, a really long list. I found it so irritating I couldn't finish the book.

“Show, don’t tell”

The story and characters make good bones of this book...but the writing lets them down. The writer has a lot to learn about the concept of “show don’t tell,” to keep her audience engaged with the story and characters. The internal monologues get carried away, leaving the story (and the reader) behind. I found myself skipping ahead to get back to the story, and it’s telling that I didn’t miss any pertinent details when I did so. It’s a shame, really, because this book could really make a statement about standing up to domestic violence and its perpetrators.

Poetry and Books- what could be better

The author captured the life and love of working in a bookshop, and the lives of the characters remain true to form. The book is a delight to listen to or read.

I’m so glad I listened to this

This book was not what I was expecting. It was a whole lot better. Some unforgettable characters and some storylines that flip tropes on their heads.

The voice actress, unfortunately, was not my favorite. There’s a lot of “edge of tears” voice and her men all sound a bit dopey. Still, it’s a great listen overall.

Reading is Necessary

This book allows you to see how important books and reading and words are for you to grow. Sometimes I got lost in the story but found my way out again
