The Paris Library

Anyone who has been in a bookclub with me knows I am a sucker for a story told in two different timelines and/or from the perspective of different characters. This book did both. It also didn’t hurt that Lily’s story was told during a childhood timeline that was so familiar I could taste the Nestle Quick and hear the mix tapes.

But more importantly, this is a love story about the love of book lovers and their books. And is a story about learning to keep your own council and think before you speak. These are two things so relatable to me that I read this novel in one day because I couldn’t walk away until I knew the outcome for Odile and her friends from the American Library of Paris.

(PS…Should you get the chance, do go to this library on your next visit to Paris!)
