There are few things in life that make a book lover happier than talking about books with other book lovers. Sarah Clarkson's new book, Book Girl, feels like a great conversation about beloved books. Book Girl is divided into themed chapters full of lists of Sarah's favorite books and why she loves them. I loved reading about some of my own favorite books, and my TBR list is now much longer thanks to her recommendations. Whether you're already an avid reader, a former bookworm trying to find your reading groove again, or someone who wants to be a reader but doesn't know where to start, this is the perfect book for you.
When I first heard about Book Girl, I was excited. Over the past two years, my reading habits have gone through a lot of changes, and I've been looking for direction. I've been a mystery fan since elementary school, when I first discovered Nancy Drew, Trixie Beldon, and the Three Investigators. But recently, I've made an effort to branch out more. First it was women's fiction. Then I started reading (or rereading) more classics. I've added more historical and split-time authors to my reading list. I also find myself listening to more and more audiobooks. My taste in books has become very broad. This was exactly the resource I needed to help me.
Book Girl is a great guide for new readers or lifelong readers who want to branch out. This is a great book to read straight through. It's also a great book to pick and choose chapters from, depending on what you're looking for. My first reading definitely will not be my last. This is a resource I'll return to again and again for years to come.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
