I’m back with another book haul post, this time is the 3rd one. Let’s see what are the books for my bookish haul no.3.
As you guys can see there 2 books: The Little Paris Bookshop and Whisper To Me. The covers are so gorgeous and the synopsis for both had me like “well I should buy it, sounds good to me,” and I’ll be putting the synopsis for each book down below.
THE LITTLE PARIS BOOKSHOP by Nina George.
Synopsis: “There are books that are suitable for a million people, others for only a hundred. There are even remedies—I mean books—that were written for one person only. A book is both medic and medicine at once. It makes a diagnosis as well as offering therapy. Putting the right novels to the appropriate ailments: that’s how I sell books.” Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can’t seem to heal through literature is himself, he’s still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened. After Perdu is finally tempted to read the letter, he hauls anchor and departs on a mission to the South of France, hoping to make peace with his loss and discover the end of the story. Joined by a bestselling but blocked author and a lovelorn Italian chef, Perdu travels along the country’s rivers, dispensing his wisdom and his books, showing that the literary world can take the human soul on a journey to heal itself. Internationally bestselling and filled with warmth and adventure, The Little Paris Bookshop is a love letter to books, meant for anyone who believes in the power of stories to shape people’s lives.
WHISPER TO ME by Nick Lake.
Synopsis: A remarkable story of strange beauty and self-discovery from Printz Award winner Nick Lake. Cassie is writing a letter to the boy whose heart she broke. She’s trying to explain why. Why she pushed him away. Why her father got so angry when he saw them together. Why she disappears some nights. Why she won’t let herself remember what happened that long-ago night on the boardwalk. Why she fell apart so completely. Desperate for his forgiveness, she’s telling the whole story of the summer she nearly lost herself. She’s hoping he’ll understand as well as she now does how love—love for your family, love for that person who makes your heart beat faster, and love for yourself—can save you after all.
I really-really dig the first one, with Paris as the main place and then there will be some sort of adventure going on, just by reading the synopsis I already had a feeling that the book will be great. And then the second book sounds good too because a word ‘self-discovery’ alone makes me feel like the book will be deep, after all self-discovery always been a very deep story and is good to follow.
