BookClub Reads: The Little Book Cafe

Plot:

Tash, Emma and Amy couldn’t be more different.
A successful estate agent who has her life pretty much on track, Tash has ticked all the boxes. Hasn’t she?

Emma is a budding writer who yearns to flex her writing skills and shake up her life that has become, well, a little stale…

And then there’s Amy, the manager of The Little Book Café, a hopeless romantic who had her heart broken, but quietly refuses to give up on love.

Brought together by their love of books and delicious cake from the café next door, they are in for a year of romance, crime and classic novels that will help them get through all that life will throw at them…

Review:

This is the first book I have read in a while where I have taken a disliking to a specific character’s personality, I am talking about Adrian he’s manipulative and possessive but it does make Tasha’s story a lot more interesting (if it’s even possible to get more interesting)

I am really drawn to Tasha, you want her to do well from the beginning, I won’t go into specific parts as I don’t want to spoil it for everyone. However, her relationship with Adrian does add a lot of drama to the storyline. I have to put my hands up to Georgia for putting issues like domestic violence in her writing. It was brave! Does Tasha get her happy ending?

Well what can I say about Emma…she is totally different to Tasha yet they are best friends. It took me a few chapters to get into her story but again I persevered and I’m glad I did. Emma is a strong independent woman, she is determined to fight for what she wants and stands up for herself if she needs to. You really get a sense of Emma’s feelings in parts and you want her to get the happy ending she deserves.

Amy literally has my dream job I am so jealous, she manages a quirky bookshop with tea and delicious cake on tap! I was hoping she would at least stand up for what she believes in, you will have to read about Amy to find out.

Overall, I enjoyed the book as a whole and I would have enjoyed them equally had I of read them separately. I found this to be such a lovely, feel-good book full of anticipation and I won’t hesitate in reading more of Georgia’s creations.

One quote I really enjoyed: “Words are important. They can change you. They can change the world”

4/5 Stars
