Mini Arc Review ~ The Little Paris Bookshop

The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George Publish Date: June 23, 2015 Publisher: Crown Publishing My Rating: ♥♥ I don’t have too much to say about this book. Honestly, this was hard for me to get into, which disappointed me. I was actually looking forward to this book. I found it confusing at times, because it seemed like Monsieur Perdu would have these memories right in the middle of something else, and there was no smooth transition. It took me a while to figure out what was happening. After a while, Perdu’s story just stopped interesting me. The book has a great premise, but wasn’t carried out well. There were some great quotes in here, bit overall, I found it a disappointment.
