I love books about books or ones that take place in a bookshop or library, this book was right up my alley. There are many characters that join The Lonely Hearts Book Club and this story is divided into sections so each character gets their point of view across. I loved that the author did that as it made me feel connected to the characters and helped me to understand them and their problems better. The characters were very real and not all of them are always likeable but the relationships they forged were true to life and believable. They were people I’d like to be friends with. What book lover wouldn’t?

I liked how books were the reason this group of lonely people was brought together. They made a family for themselves and learned a lot about each other but also about themselves and they grew as a group and changed a bit along the way. This is a very character-driven storyline with well-thought-out backstories for each, it was also very emotional at times. I adored this book and the characters inside. All. The. Stars.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
