The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George {review}

*sigh*  I wanted to finish this book, people.  I really did.  However, it was unfortunately, um...not exactly written from a Christian perspective.  Now, I'm NOT saying that I only read "Christian books," because that is certainly not the case.  However, this one was starting to get inappropriate, and I wasn't really comfortable with continuing to read it.

More's the pity, because it was very well-written.  The prose was savory and cosy, and the story was even described as "a love letter to books".  I mean, what could be better?  A love letter to books, people!  But something about it just wasn't sitting well with me.  I was a little confused, as well, with the part of the storyline that was delving into sensuality.  It didn't exactly make much sense.  (Then again, it probably would have been explained had I finished the book.)  

So, yep!  That was my experience with this book.  It was extremely well-crafted, but I didn't feel comfortable finishing it:-/

[I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.]

It appears that you're about to leave a comment. I think you should know that if you do, I will giggle and smile and be delirious with joy, and then I'll stalk you to find out whether or not you have a blog *ahem*.

…All that's to say, please comment! :D
