CORINA’S REVIEW

AUDIOBOOK

 

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill was a sweet novel with romantic undertones, but I would not necessarily say it’s a romance per se. Which it is not being advertised as. But lately all cute and fluffy illustrated covers are being picked up with expectations of a romance. Just thought I’ll put it out there, in case you are like me and  read all the books with cutesy illustrated covers.

For anyone that loves reading as much as I do, there are some similarities and relatable stories and situations that easily connects the reader with Nina. Not everything Nina does, or thinks matches my feeling towards reading, because no reader is the same, and Nina is a bit of an extreme kind of bookworm. But overall the plot turned out to be an endearing story.

I think besides a very sweet romance, which maybe took 20% of the book, the real draw is the relationships Nina establishes with her suddenly new and widespread family.

The most endearing part is that in the end, Nina sees herself in most of her new relatives. Everyone has a bit of a trait that she can find in herself as well. I really enjoyed that part. The connections she made are wonderful. Nina’s journey of finding herself, opening up, and engaging in spontaneous and impromptu events, stepping out of her comfort zone, and finding friends in unexpected places.

For someone that enjoys a great feel-good romance, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill turned out to be a rather enjoyable and sweet novel.

The audiobook was very well narrated, and I had no issue staying focused.

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill - Abbi Waxman

Meet Nina Hill: A young woman supremely confident in her own…shell.

The only child of a single mother, Nina has her life just as she wants it: a job in a bookstore, a kick-butt trivia team, a world-class planner and a cat named Phil. If she sometimes suspects there might be more to life than reading, she just shrugs and picks up a new book.

When the father Nina never knew existed suddenly dies, leaving behind innumerable sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews, Nina is horrified. They all live close by! They’re all–or mostly all–excited to meet her! She’ll have to Speak. To. Strangers. It’s a disaster! And as if that wasn’t enough, Tom, her trivia nemesis, has turned out to be cute, funny, and deeply interested in getting to know her. Doesn’t he realize what a terrible idea that is?

Nina considers her options.
1. Completely change her name and appearance. (Too drastic, plus she likes her hair.)
2. Flee to a deserted island. (Hard pass, see: coffee).
3. Hide in a corner of her apartment and rock back and forth. (Already doing it.)

It’s time for Nina to come out of her comfortable shell, but she isn’t convinced real life could ever live up to fiction. It’s going to take a brand new family, a persistent suitor, and the combined effects of ice cream and trivia to make her turn her own fresh page.
