  • Made me want to run a bookshop in Scotland

    Jenny Colgan is one of those authors that I have been meaning to read for ages. So, I finally decided to check out 'The Bookshop on the Corner" from my local library's overdrive collection. Personally, I thought that idea of a young and almost out of work woman picking up her life to run a mobile bookshop in a village in Scotland sounded like an idyllic read for a bit of nighttime reading. I wasn't wrong. First off, the novel’s setting is perfect. The author’s description of village life in Scotland felt incredibly cosy. By the end of the novel, I wanted to pack up my kindle and head for Kirrinfief. As for the characters, I was instantly drawn into the village life and felt myself becoming attached to the various people that Nina encountered in the community (Including the seemingly grumpy, Lennox). If I had to pick a caveat, it would be that the plot was fairly predictable. Nevertheless, I found myself so wrapped up in the sweetness of the book that the predictability didn’t matter too much to me. If I had to pick a caveat, it would be that the plot was somewhat predictable. Nevertheless, I was so engaged in the sweetness of the book, that the predictability wasn't much of an issue for me. Overall, I loved this book and would recommend it to others who are looking for a gentle book to read. I can't wait to read more from Jenny Colgan.

  • Delightful!

    Jenny Colgan’s The Bookshop on the Corner was a delightful story of a woman who forges a new life for herself after losing her job. I enjoyed the authors laid back writing style, which made for a quick and entertaining story. This book was host to a cast of wonderful characters. The rural Scotland setting and the culture was beautifully described. Nina’s passion and knowledge of books will be very appealing to readers. I would recommend The Bookshop on the Corner to fans of contemporary fiction. I look forward to reading more from Jenny Colgan in the future. I was sent a copy of The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan, from HarperCollins and TLC Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
