#BookReview: The Library of Lost Things by @LauraTNamey @InkYardPress


Synopsis: From the moment she first learned to read, literary genius Darcy Wells has spent most of her time living in the worlds of her books. There, she can avoid the crushing reality of her mother’s hoarding and pretend her life is simply ordinary. But when a new property manager becomes more active in the upkeep of their apartment complex, the only home Darcy has ever known outside of her books suddenly hangs in the balance.

While Darcy is struggling to survive beneath the weight of her mother’s compulsive shopping, Asher Fleet, a former teen pilot with an unexpectedly shattered future, walks into the bookstore where she works…and straight into her heart. For the first time in her life, Darcy can’t seem to find the right words. Fairy tales are one thing, but real love makes her want to hide inside her carefully constructed ink-and-paper bomb shelter.

Still, after spending her whole life keeping people out, something about Asher makes Darcy want to open up. But securing her own happily-ever-after will mean she’ll need to stop hiding and start living her own truth—even if it’s messy.

My Review: The Library of Lost Things sounded like your normal contemporary novel. But once I really started reading it I found that it was so much more.  This is one of those titles that is full of the feels and it hits you right in the heart.  The story opened with us learning a little about Darcy and her situation with her mom. The author did a great job creating this world of hoarding as well as the character of Darcy and her mom.  So may YA titles make the parents there but not and although this one did that sort of, Darcy's mom was there in some respect.  


Darcy was such a great character and I have to say that she was way stronger and nicer than I would have been, with her mom's hoarding.  I think I most likely would have given up on my mom ages before that and moved in with my grams or something.  I am not a clean freak but I do like things being put away.  And this goat tunnel system was just insane.  I almost wished this would have had pictures or artwork throughout the story just so you could picture it even more.  

Side characters in this one were amazing!! Marisol was my spirit animal for anything dealing with clothes and I really need a book about her!!! I want to know what happens in her life past this title!!  Then there is Asher, towards the end of the title he reminded me of a Middle Ages woman who was tired of dating and just wanted to settle down.  I thought it was so funny that I thought of him this way.  But that is just how he made me feel.  I loved his character as well and his issues and he was just so grounded.  

The writing in this title was phenomenal!! It flowed so well and it just drew you into the story in the best possible way.  You just can't put it down because you're just so invested in what is going to happen next.  This book is just full of love for authors and books and the only issue I had with it was that hate for ebooks.  This debate has been going on forever and I know it won't stop but print books and ebooks are both amazing.  

Overall, I would recommend this one to anyone who loves books and bookish things.  As well as those who want a story about a girl just trying to not be invisible anymore.
