Review: Turning Pages by Tristi Pinkson
Published in 2012, 240 pages.
My Rating: ****--4 Stars
With his pride and her prejudice, what could possibly go wrong?
When the arrogant Blake Hansen steals Addie Preston's promotion at the library, he pretty much rubs her nose in it. But Addie, who dreams of being a full-fledged librarian, decides to stick it out. She loves surrounding herself with books and keeping her father's memory alive in the building where they spent so much time together.
Soon, Addie learns that her beloved library will be torn down to make room for a larger facility, and she has to make a choice. Fight, or let go?
To complicate things, she finds herself attracted to Blake, who is engaged to someone else. Will Blake and Addie ever resolve their differences?
My Review: Turning Pages is a very cute modern-day retelling of Pride and Prejudice.
Addie is an aspiring librarian and is on a quest to get her degree...and to save the old library where she works. Blake is the man who stole her job from under her and who drives her insane.
There was something about this book that made me just keep thinking about it. I think for starters, one of my dream jobs would be to work in a library. When Addie would post her weekly recommendations, it would make me think of which book I would choose. I loved the characters and the interactions they had with each other, especially Blake, Addie, and Melanie. I also loved the relationship that Addie had with her family and that whole side story.
Content: very clean and cute!!
