Book: The Littlest Library

 Book: The Littlest Library

Author: Poppy Alexander

Pages: 336

This is my 103rd read for the year

This is the story of Jess Metcalf.  Her grandmother has just passed away and she lost her job as the librarian, so she decides it is time for a change.  She visits a small town and finds the perfect little cottage that might just fit what she was looking for.  This cottage comes with a lot of work and a gruff neighbor named Aiden, and an odd English telephone box in the front door.  Jess decides to turn the telephone box into a little library and in return, the town becomes her family.

This was a overly sweet not well written book.  This is an easy read, and I tried to enjoy it for what it was.  This is a Hallmark movie in book form.  I could picture the little cottage and her yard and her town and her little library - all positives of the story.  I didn't like the writing style.  I couldn't really connect to any of the characters or care what happened to him.  The author tried to shove a lot of little side stories into 300 pages and it just didn't work for me.
