Lost For Words Reviews
I enjoyed this story about a quirky young lady named Loveday Cardew, with nose ring and first sentences of novels tattooed on her body, who has worked in a bookshop in York since she was fifteen years old.
Loveday had spent years in a foster home after a tragedy happened in her family life, and she just has a crazy love for books which makes her job ideal.
Because of what happened in her family, I don’t think she believes in love for herself, and she just really doesn’t like people anyway... exce ...more
Me ha gustado la historia a pesar de ser algo escuchado,visto y leído un millón de veces,ni siquiera es de un dramatismo extremo pero está bien. También me ha agradado el personaje principal (Loveday Cardew) y los secundarios que la rodean. La manera de narrar de la autora es agradable,incluso sorprendente en ocasiones cuando se dirige directamente al lector que resulta poco habitual y muy curioso.
Me ha fallado el tema de la metaliteratura que es abundante en el libro. Cuando hay multitud de ref ...more
As I am slightly obsessed with books, reading, book clubs, book shops (you get the idea) I was really looking forward to reading this story, set in a second-hand bookshop in York (not too far from where I live). I expected a cosy plot line and a little light relief from the heavyweight book I had just finished.
The book is all this and so much more, and the old adage "never judge a book by its cover" has never felt more apt. There are a couple of hard-hitting events that reverberate throughout t ...more
4.5 stars. Loved this engaging, heart-warming story of a damaged young woman rebuilding her life through gradually learning to trust in love.
Esta lectura no ya sido lo que me parecía, me esperaba encontrar una lectura sencilla de librerías, sí lo admito, me gustan las librerías, pero es algo más que eso, trata temas más profundos y por desgracia muy actuales.
✨¡Buenas tardes, chic@s!✨
Ayer terminé ✅ LA VIDA ESCONDIDA ENTRE LOS LIBROS de Stephanie Butland. ⭐4,5/5⭐ No puedo decir con palabras lo agradecida que estoy con @lince_ediciones por haber elegido enviarme este ejemplar. Ha sido una historia maravillosa que tardaré tiempo en olvidar.
Loveday es una chica muy especial. Tras un suceso horrible que destrozó su encantadora infancia, encontró en los libros el lugar donde esconderse y sentirse ella misma. Han sido siempre ...more
An emotional yet a quiet read
Written by the POV of Loveday, we are introduced to her life and the very few people in it and slowly on what makes Loveday the way she is.
The chapters go back and forth between present and
past - revealing the affects of domestic violence and crime on people's lives.
But it was not an intense read but strangely comforting in some ways to know that survival and happiness are not impossible even through some sadness in the end.
I really liked Archie's character.

Despite the title, I won't be lost for words reviewing this lovely book. It is full of characters you will take to your heart and I loved the way the story unfolded. Loveday Cardew is a young woman in her twenties, quite a spiky character, who works in an independent bookshop in York owned by the wonderfully eccentric Archie. Some years previously as a young girl, as the story hints at and gradually reveals, she suffered terrible loss. This is one of the reasons she now wants to be so self-suffi ...more
