Sometimes, books get a lot of buzz, show up on numerous “best of lists,” get recommended by everyone you know and don’t live up to the hype.

I don’t know why I waited so long to read this book. It has been on my radar since it was released and I had heard good things but it took being quarantined for me to read a book about my profession (maybe this is a sign that I’m missing work.) While marketed as a true crime book, this is also a love letter to libraries and the librarians that dedicate their lives to ensuring these institutions stay vital parts of the community they serve. I would recommend this for anyone who has ever wondered what librarians do all day.
What a refreshing romance this was! Most hetero romance novels center on the female characters and spend little time on the male characters. This book takes what we think about romances and flips it around. I was really charmed by this book and can’t wait to read the rest of this series.
