    A memorable debut that reads like a love song to books and the people that adore them. Amy Meyerson blends family drama and a cast of characters so smoothly that I found this book really difficult to put down. Miranda Brooks is a middle school history teacher, living in Philadelphi...

    Easily worthy of 4.78 stars!! Let's round it up to a nice round 5 stars. ????? As I have read an advanced reader copy, I do not want to give away too much information. But, I want to go on record stating that The Bookshop of Yesterdays is destined to be one of this s...

    The Bookshop of Yesterdays is a tribute to independent book stores and the impact of those stores on individuals and the community. As the novel opens, Miranda Brooks inherits a struggling bookstore, Prospero Books, from her estranged uncle. When she was young, he would create elaborat...

    2 stars--it was OK. What I liked: The bookstore setting and literary "clues" were fun. The author clearly loves books and reading, and that shows. What I didn't like: The main character, Miranda, was selfish and unlikable. Why was she with her boyfriend? They seemed to despise ea...

    3.5 stars Miranda inherits a bookshop from an uncle she hasn't seen for 16 years. Before that time they used to be close and she never understood what had happened to change that. The book starts off very well, but halfway the story it loses energy. Some of the characters are very sel...

    The Bookshop of Yesterday?s has a lovely cover of a pile of books on the cover so that is what drew me in right away! Miranda was always close to her Uncle Billy growing up until one day he just stopped showing up. Then one day he dies and she finds out all kinds of secrets about his...

    [3.7] I am pre-disposed to like all books about bookshops and this is better than most that I've read lately. The heroine is smart, the writing is good, the mystery is engaging and the bookstore sounds fabulous. As GR friend Cathrine said "it goes down like cappuccino with chocolate sp...

    I received an advanced uncorrected copy from NetGalley for an honest review. The Bookshop of Yesterdays is about Miranda, a history teacher on the east coast who's estranged uncle dies and leaves her not only his bookstore in LA but also the clues to a family mystery. The premise is ...

    I received this as an ARC and I can?t wait for it to come out June 2018 so I can begin recommending it to everyone. Working in a bookstore, the cover and title first caught my eye, but the story really caught my attention. It has mystery, drama, its fair share of family issues, and a...

    What an insufferable main character. Kind of an interesting premise, but lacked any emotional or even logical resonance. ...

    3.5 stars. I received this book from NetGalley and Park Row in exchange for an honest review. The premise of this book sounded so intriguing: small, quaint bookstore that has been inherited by a young woman, Miranda Brooks. As a young girl, Miranda made many visits to Prospero Books in...

    Listened to this one from Scribd - yay for such a great selection of audiobooks there! I also had a hard copy from the library but was able to get to the audio sooner :-) This was an entertaining story with a great premise and I desperately wanted to love it. I ended up enjoying it but...

    ???? Four Bookish Stars! A book about books and a bookshop? Yes please! I thought this was brilliant. The mystery has enough time to bulid and you can't stop turning the pages until you find out what it is. The ending is a surprising one and I loved all the scavenger-hu...

    This novel was a dark horse for me. I requested it from NetGalley because I wanted a small respite from the more noir/darker mysteries that I've been reading lately. I expected it to be much fluffier than it was. THE BOOKSHOP OF YESTERDAYS is a lovely, smart novel that followed a young...

    I really wanted to love this book; I just felt a little off about it. I found the scavenger hunt part intriguing and clever, but a little too dragged out at times. For the most part, I liked the character of Miranda, but had she been a friend of mine in real life, I might have slapped ...

    Bookshop of Yesterdays was a story I didn't want to see end. Twists and plot turns that I did NOT see coming, terrible accidents, love affairs, and BOOKS! A great story of perseverance, heartbreak, new love, old love, sibling rivalry, books, death, secrets, books, history, family, dedi...

    Books about books are just mesmerizing. Even if they're not particularly amazing, something about the premise always seems so magical, yet comfortable...like you're greeting an old friend. And even though The Bookshop of Yesterdays didn't wow me, it was still a little bit like this. ...

    A mystery-via-scavenger-hunt set in a bookstore? Sign me up! I liked the premise of The Bookshop of Yesterdays, but the execution fell a little flat to me. The pacing was a bit off: it was a slow burn for the first two-thirds of the story, and at one point the scavenger hunt almost die...

    What an insufferable main character. Kind of an interesting premise, but lacked any emotional or even logical resonance. ...

    3.5 stars. I received this book from NetGalley and Park Row in exchange for an honest review. The premise of this book sounded so intriguing: small, quaint bookstore that has been inherited by a young woman, Miranda Brooks. As a young girl, Miranda made many visits to Prospero Books in...

    ???? Four Bookish Stars! A book about books and a bookshop? Yes please! I thought this was brilliant. The mystery has enough time to bulid and you can't stop turning the pages until you find out what it is. The ending is a surprising one and I loved all the scavenger-hu...

    Netgalley #24 ...

    This novel was a dark horse for me. I requested it from NetGalley because I wanted a small respite from the more noir/darker mysteries that I've been reading lately. I expected it to be much fluffier than it was. THE BOOKSHOP OF YESTERDAYS is a lovely, smart novel that followed a young...

    I really wanted to love this book; I just felt a little off about it. I found the scavenger hunt part intriguing and clever, but a little too dragged out at times. For the most part, I liked the character of Miranda, but had she been a friend of mine in real life, I might have slapped ...

    Bookshop of Yesterdays was a story I didn't want to see end. Twists and plot turns that I did NOT see coming, terrible accidents, love affairs, and BOOKS! A great story of perseverance, heartbreak, new love, old love, sibling rivalry, books, death, secrets, books, history, family, dedi...

    Books about books are just mesmerizing. Even if they're not particularly amazing, something about the premise always seems so magical, yet comfortable...like you're greeting an old friend. And even though The Bookshop of Yesterdays didn't wow me, it was still a little bit like this. ...

    A mystery-via-scavenger-hunt set in a bookstore? Sign me up! I liked the premise of The Bookshop of Yesterdays, but the execution fell a little flat to me. The pacing was a bit off: it was a slow burn for the first two-thirds of the story, and at one point the scavenger hunt almost die...

    Sounded so promising, but the narrator drove me more and more nuts the further I got into it. Cut my losses on p. 163 to move on to something I might enjoy. ...

    First and foremost, this is love song to books and those who love reading them. Miranda Brooks, a Philadelphia history teacher, inherits a bookstore in L.A. from her beloved uncle, Billy, who disappeared from her life after a mysterious rift with her mother. Besides the bookshop, he's ...

    This was a great story but it lost its momentum for me a bit in parts, then it would pick back up again. The writing was very good, I enjoyed the setting of the bookshop and the scavenger hunt Miranda was on in order to learn the truth of what happened to her estranged Uncle. I give th...

    I am predisposed to love books that feature bookshops, but this book has earned it's rightful place in my heart. After her once beloved but now estranged uncle passes, Miranda inherits Prospero Books, which is floundering to keep it's doors open. Her uncle has left her more than a book...

    2 stars--it was OK. What I liked: The bookstore setting and literary "clues" were fun. The author clearly loves books and reading, and that shows. What I didn't like: The main character, Miranda, was selfish and unlikable. Why was she with her boyfriend? They seemed to despise ea...

    This novel was a dark horse for me. I requested it from NetGalley because I wanted a small respite from the more noir/darker mysteries that I've been reading lately. I expected it to be much fluffier than it was. THE BOOKSHOP OF YESTERDAYS is a lovely, smart novel that followed a young...

    I really wanted to love this book; I just felt a little off about it. I found the scavenger hunt part intriguing and clever, but a little too dragged out at times. For the most part, I liked the character of Miranda, but had she been a friend of mine in real life, I might have slapped ...

    Bookshop of Yesterdays was a story I didn't want to see end. Twists and plot turns that I did NOT see coming, terrible accidents, love affairs, and BOOKS! A great story of perseverance, heartbreak, new love, old love, sibling rivalry, books, death, secrets, books, history, family, dedi...

    Books about books are just mesmerizing. Even if they're not particularly amazing, something about the premise always seems so magical, yet comfortable...like you're greeting an old friend. And even though The Bookshop of Yesterdays didn't wow me, it was still a little bit like this. ...

    A mystery-via-scavenger-hunt set in a bookstore? Sign me up! I liked the premise of The Bookshop of Yesterdays, but the execution fell a little flat to me. The pacing was a bit off: it was a slow burn for the first two-thirds of the story, and at one point the scavenger hunt almost die...

    Sounded so promising, but the narrator drove me more and more nuts the further I got into it. Cut my losses on p. 163 to move on to something I might enjoy. ...

    First and foremost, this is love song to books and those who love reading them. Miranda Brooks, a Philadelphia history teacher, inherits a bookstore in L.A. from her beloved uncle, Billy, who disappeared from her life after a mysterious rift with her mother. Besides the bookshop, he's ...

    This was a great story but it lost its momentum for me a bit in parts, then it would pick back up again. The writing was very good, I enjoyed the setting of the bookshop and the scavenger hunt Miranda was on in order to learn the truth of what happened to her estranged Uncle. I give th...
