The Library of Lost Things
The Library of Lost Things | Laura Taylor Namey
9 posts | 9 read | 11 to read
From the moment she first learned to read, literary genius Darcy Wells has spent most of her time living in the worlds of her books. There, she can avoid the crushing reality of her mother's hoarding and pretend her life is simply ordinary. But when a new property manager becomes more active in the upkeep of their apartment complex, the only home Darcy has ever known outside of her books suddenly hangs in the balance. While Darcy is struggling to survive beneath the weight of her mother's compulsive shopping, Asher Fleet, a former teen pilot with an unexpectedly shattered future, walks into the bookstore where she works...and straight into her heart. For the first time in her life, Darcy can't seem to find the right words. Fairy tales are one thing, but real love makes her want to hide inside her carefully constructed ink-and-paper bomb shelter. Still, after spending her whole life keeping people out, something about Asher makes Darcy want to open up. But securing her own happily-ever-after will mean she'll need to stop hiding and start living her own truth--even if it's messy.

Listed as a YA romance, this book will appeal to many outside of that demographic. The complex mother daughter relationship, an absentee father, the almost too grown-up-Darcy mashed up with the innocent Darcy who lives her life within the safe confines of books, & Darcy's BFF Marisol, her advisor & confidant. Throw in Asher, a life-changing accident, & a hoarder for a mom & you have an interesting & riveting story! Favorite passage: (in comments)

TheHeartlandBookFairy Favorite passage: "Life isn't to-the-letter predictable. It's messy, like us, and it changes. So our dreams can change too.". Truth! Whether you are 18 or 50 plus, truth! Insight: am I spending my life in my books? 1mo
TheHeartlandBookFairy Also, it's not hoarding if it's books 😉 1mo

I absolutely LOVED this book! Darcy loves everything about books. She is just trying to figure out how to balance her life with everything that is going on. Her mom is a hoarder and she is afraid that everyone will find out her moms secret. I fell in love with Darcy and Asher. I loved seeing them work through everything together. I didn‘t want this book to end at all! Can‘t wait to see what the author writes next!

AmyG I just finished this. I won it from Goodreads. What a lovely YA book. I don‘t even really like books like this. Ha! @Jas16 I see you stacked this.....it will be coming your way! 1mo
Jas16 @AmyG Thank you so much! That is so nice of you. After this great review, I cannot wait to read it. 1mo
AmyG @Jas16 when I saw you marked it to read....I knew I had to send this.... a real gem of a book. You‘ll love it. Sending it out tomorrow. 😘 1mo
Lovesbooks87 @AmyG that‘s so nice of you! I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed it! @Jas16 I hope you enjoy it and can‘t wait to hear what you think about it! 1mo
