This will sound weird… When I finished this book, for a while, I just sat still, holding the book and grinning like an idiot…
The book I’m talking about is The collected works of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. On the back of the book it says it’s a loveletter to book and reading, which is a very correct statement!
It’s the story of A.J.Fikry, and Alice bookstore. I’ve never felt the need to visit a lot of the places I’ve read about, but I so badly want to visit Alice bookstore. I would love to meet Mr. Fikry, Amelia, Maya, Lambiase, Ismay and everyone else on Alice island. I want to work in that bookstore.
You know that feeling you get when something is right, absolutely perfect? That’s the feeling I got when I read this book.
Considering I’m in love with this book, it’s unusual I don’t really have much to say. I’m just basking in the incredible feeling the book gave me. Dare I say it might be one of my favorite books?! 🙂
