So I need a Malcom. I loved the journey that Miranda took to find out her past. I liked all the books that were thrown around. So good.
Discussion Question Number One.
Two chapters in. I‘ve always had this thing about kids calling an Aunt or Uncle by their first name only. And something about the development of her relationship with her boyfriend seems a little weird. I‘m sticking with it because I think the bookstore and scavenger hunts will be fun.
I listened to a bit more of this book yesterday while waiting for the boat to pick me up and finished it today while working in the garden.
I enjoyed the overall story and the literary connections used throughout as part of Miranda‘s quest to understand her family‘s story. This book is full of characters making and avoiding making difficult decisions, but I appreciated how it all came together in the end.

Miranda returns to her home when her estranged uncle dies and leaves her a bookstore. Threads of Shakespeare‘s Tempest are worked through the entire book, which I enjoyed. I felt like the big twist at the end was a bit too predictable and it took a long time to get to it. The scavenger hunt was fun, but I didn‘t feel invested in some of the characters relationships. A good read if your expectations aren‘t too high.
I really enjoyed this book. I figured out a major plot point early on (which may not be at all unusual), but it didn‘t keep my from enjoying the narrative in the least. I particularly enjoyed the various book references strewn throughout the story. Fun little read.
Litsy, I‘ve missed you! This was a crazy week that involved me trying to give up my iPhone and move to android. My husband was all excited to switch, and I honestly thought I could do it. After a few hyperbolic meltdowns, turns out, I can‘t lol. Back to my old iPhone and happily posting here again 🖤
Sometimes you read a book precisely at the point in your life when you needed to hear what it had to say. I didn‘t expect to have such strong feelings for a book I never would have picked up on my own. The emotions, the concept of forgiveness, and the intrigue of new experiences were all beautiful. Thank you so much @Amymeyerson for writing this spectacular prose and thank you to @Kappadeemom for choosing it for #lmpbc
January 2019 in review. #suvataStats
What a delicious novel❣️ @Amymeyerson Thanks for the ride! Read it in one sitting.
I see that this book has an average rating of between 3 and 4 stars. So why did I give it 5 stars? When I was just a few chapters in, I found out that my aunt had unexpectedly passed away. At that point I didn‘t feel like reading anything at all. After a few days, I picked it back up and it spoke to me so deeply and helped me deal with my grief in ways I had never anticipated. A perfect example of a book finding me just when I needed it most.
I sure am making a mess reading and listening to this book, but I sure am loving it. I love that it‘s a family drama but it‘s also got a mystery within. I have so much to do right now but all I really want to do is sit down and finish this book. #LMPBC - Round 4 - Group M.

I got the January book today. It may have taken a little longer than it should have because it had to be forwarded from my old address to my new address. I just wanted to let @RavenLovelyReads know that it arrived. Can‘t wait to get started on it.
I can‘t find the original posts! Can I join in on #booked2019 ? @4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage
What do I need to do for the challenge? I finished this #newtoyouauthor and would love to take a stab at the rest!
Kind of a meh book for me. I enjoyed the scavenger hunt aspect but had the twist figured out very early on. The relationship with Jay never made sense to me and I don‘t get why Miranda didn‘t seek out Lee right away. Book 4 of 2019.
1-4-19: My 1st finished book of 2019! This one was really lovely. I really enjoyed it. 👍🏼📖#️⃣1️⃣
Miranda idolizes her Uncle Billy, a seismologist who owns a bookstore. After Billy and her mom have a fight, he disappears from their lives. Sixteen years later, he dies and leaves his failing bookshop to Miranda, along with a clue that will take her on one last scavenger hunt. As Miranda gets closer to the truth about a big family secret, she also takes a hard look at what she wants from her life.
I love books about books/bookstores.
