Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE LIBRARY OF LOST THINGS by Laura Taylor Namey
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE LIBRARY OF LOST THINGS by Laura Taylor Namey. I’m always up for a book that features book lovers so this one really appeals to me. It also sounds like it’s going to have a complex mother-daughter relationship as well as a lovely romance.
THE LIBRARY OF LOST THINGS by Laura Taylor Namey
Publication Date: October 8, 2019
From the moment she first learned to read, literary genius Darcy Wells has spent most of her time living in the worlds of her books. There, she can avoid the crushing reality of her mother’s hoarding and pretend her life is simply ordinary. But when a new property manager becomes more active in the upkeep of their apartment complex, the only home Darcy has ever known outside of her books suddenly hangs in the balance.
While Darcy is struggling to survive beneath the weight of her mother’s compulsive shopping, Asher Fleet, a former teen pilot with an unexpectedly shattered future, walks into the bookstore where she worksand straight into her heart. For the first time in her life, Darcy can’t seem to find the right words. Fairy tales are one thing, but real love makes her want to hide inside her carefully constructed ink-and-paper bomb shelter.
Still, after spending her whole life keeping people out, something about Asher makes Darcy want to open up. But securing her own happily-ever-after will mean she’ll need to stop hiding and start living her own truth–even if it’s messy.

I love stories where the characters work in a bookstore – my dream! (Haha, that or a library!)
My dream too, lol!
This is new to me, and I do love the sound of a good mother daughter relationship. Plus books, of course😁

I really hope so.
This sounds wonderful. I’m not currently up on new releases so I’m relying on yours, Suzanne. 🙂 I’m currently reading my first Heather Graham novel and I’m not impressed. 😛 I hope you’re doing well and happy reading!

I’ve only read one of Graham’s books so far and it was just okay for me.
You know I want to read this one! I’m hoping for a happy ending with this one. I hope you love it, Suzanne!

Oh yeah, I’m right there with you on wanting that happy ending. Hope we both love this one!
I’ve seen this book around a lot, but this is the first time I’ve taken the time to read what it was about. I really want to read this now too!

I was the same way. I knew it was a book about books by the title, but then when I read the synopsis, I was completely sold.
Oh hey! I have this one! I can’t wait to read it!!
