Review" The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
I love books about books, if you've ever read any of my other blog reviews, you know this. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by gabrielle Zevin, while short and sweet does not disappoint. A.J.Fikry is a widowed book store owner. Life lost all meaning for him when he lost his beloved, funny wife to cancer. Alone, he rebuffs almost all overtures of friendship. Until he meets Amelia Loman. And until someone leaves a sweet bundle in his store. Charming and bookish, funny and poignant, this book is grown up enough for, well, so called gown ups, and perfect for teens who are fans of Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore and John Green's books. Definitely one to look for in 2014.
