The Bookshop on the Corner

the bookshop on the corner

3 stars.  

This is a solid example of ‘chick lit’ that can be digested without effort or disappointment.

If you like… librarian/book nerd characters, grumpy leading men, visions of Scotland, chick lit.

I happily listened to The Bookshop on the Corner on audiobook.  My commute was too early for talk radio to be on, so I picked this up to keep me awake.  It did the job.

This book falls into a category that I consider ‘meh’.  The characters are engaging enough that I kept listening, but the storyline didn’t strike me as special.  I love a good story revolving around librarians, or bakers, and Jenny Colgan consistently delivers leading ladies I can get behind.  Nina, though, she got on my nerves a little bit.  Also, I personally am very tired of the grouchy love interest turned brusque but tender.  But if that’s your thing this book has plenty of it.

A++ narration though.  Great voices for each character.
