    [Gifted] It was so fun spotting all my favourite fictional characters, and it just felt like a big warm hug. Fictional worlds collide in this heartwarming future classic. Anna James has created a world, and bookshop, that I desperately want to live in. ...

    Cute middle grade read, though I didn?t wind up as invested in it as I would have liked to be! The world of bookwanderers and their ability was fun, and the literary nods made me smile too. ...

    I have been HIGHLY anticipating this book since it was released. It just seemed like my cup of tea ? a book about the magic of books ? and not only did it live up to my expectations, it surpassed them. When I first raved about this book on twitter, I said this story was a love let...

    4,5 stars With a series title as Pages & Co. it was for sure meant to capture my attention. As I have been giving myself more room to read middle grade it didn?t take me too long to read this book after the Dutch translation was released this year. Matilda is a bit of a b...

    While I'm well aware that the actual target audience for this book is middle school aged children, I think it has the potential to appeal for bibliophiles of all ages. I knew I was meant to fall in love with it ever since I first read the story and become even more sure once I heard An...

    *4.75 Stars* This was really great. An awesome story for middle graders, as it is intended but also for any book lover. The designs are amazing. From both covers to the drawings inside but also how certain words are stylized. It is really is a little gem of a book and I can't wait...

    I first purchased this novel as I loved Anna as a Youtuber and I knew this was a book about books. I did not expect to adore this to the extent I did but oh my goodness I fell in love. There was some predictability but equally some shock factors. It was wildly original and it?s made ...
