The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald
(to be released January 19, 2016)
Books about books and bookstores! Awesome – am I right? I’ve read about 2/3 of this upcoming new release so far, and it’s very sweet and quirky — and sure to appeal to any booklover who’s ever dreamed of opening up his or her very own bookstore. I love the odd characters and their awkward moments:
Small talk was not something Sara excelled at. She couldn’t think of anything to say, so she stayed silent. Without realizing it, she was clutching her jacket pocket, where she had shoved a paperback just to be on the safe side. She didn’t think she could really take it out, even though Tom obviously had no desire to talk to her. People were strange like that. They could be completely uninterested in you, but the moment you picked up a book, you were the one being rude.
Watch for my review, coming soon!
