Description

The Lost for Words Bookshop is a compelling, irresistible, and heart-rending audiobook from author Stephanie Butland

Loveday Cardew prefers books to people. If you look carefully, you might glimpse the first lines of the novels she loves most tattooed on her skin. But there are some things Loveday will never, ever show you.

Into her hiding place—the bookstore where she works—come a poet, a lover, and three suspicious deliveries.

Someone has found out about her mysterious past. Will Loveday survive her own heartbreaking secrets?

    Loved this book. Wish I could put into words how it made my heart feel.
  • (5/5)
    This was such a beautiful story. The narration is always perfect with Imogen. There was mystery, a love story and so much more. If you’re looking for a book to read that on the surface seems simple and light but has wonderful depth, this is the one for you!
  • (5/5)
    This book was a wonderful surprise. The quirky characters made it very real. The author artfully unfolded the plot keeping me wondering the entire time. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.
  • (4/5)
    Quite perfect vacation-listening. Calm in rhythm but a steady flow in the story. I did not mind the narrators voices of different characters, but can see why many have a hard time getting past them. I like this narrators' readingstyle, and it suited well for this book. Overall a good listen, captivating enough, but not too captivating to disturb the moments I could not listen - I easily get "stuck" in stories and too captivating stories take me too far from reality sometimes.

    I liked being in the head of the main character. Sweet book
  • (4/5)
    I really enjoyed this book. The characters are vivid and well developed. It is a story about a traumatized young woman’s road to healing and trust. I really limed that strong sense of connection with books and literature I generally like Imogen Church’s narration but this was not one of her better ones and the voice for the male characters in particular was irritating.
