    Nina Hill's life is

    thank you very much.

    She has an adorable little apartment, a fabulous job at

    (Knight's), and a grumpy cat (Phil).

    - she plays trivia at a local bar (provided it isn't one of the places she's been banned from) (it happens, okay?). Tom, her greatest rival, can be a bit of a jerk and Nina takes extreme pleasure in showing him up.

    Her life

    And honestly, she wouldn't have it any other way.

    But unfortunately, what you want and what you get isn't always the same thing.

    Nina's mother is a world class photographer and as a result, Nina spent most of her childhood

    along with her live-in nanny.

    In short,

    (at least in real life).

    Now, nearly thirty years old, Nina learns that not only did her mother actually know who Nina's father was... but also

    But in order to claim it, she must meet...her (many) relatives (shudder). Strangers. Dangers. And all that.

    Annnnd, all this turmoil continues to spiral.

    Her trivia nemesis, Tom, is actually

    than she anticipated.

    And Tom, well, he's always noticed Nina but now he's

    noticing her.

    And to top it all, Knight's Bookstore is on its last legs. It was actually on it's last legs months and months ago.

    Nina is heartbroken but at least

    ...though it's not much of one.

    Bookish Nina will have to do something she's never even considered before - take charge and make a difference.

    I honestly have not related so much to a main character in years.

    I feel like Nina and I are soul sisters.

    I loved Nina's fierce love of any and all things bookish - especially her dedicated reading time!

    The characters were

    and their personalities were so vibrant that I felt like I could have a conversation with them.

    One of my favorite parts about this book was actually reading it with my mother.

    My mom always gets to check out the books sent to me by publishers and she snatched this one up so fast that if I had blinked, I would have missed it.

    Reading this one with her was truly a wonderful bonding experience.

    whenever we saw Nina interact with her family and we sighed with happiness at the ending.

    Waxman paced those snappy conversations perfectly for our sense of humor.

    The relationship was over-the-top but in a totally believable way - you know what I mean. It's like a meet-cute but one that I can actually see happening.

    And probably the best quote of the entire book:

    Pure happiness.

    Five bold, big, underlined, shining, intellectual, quirky, weird, nuts, but so so so much entertaining, perfectly crafted, how can I resist to love it stars!!!

    How any ordinary human being could resist the charm of Nina Hill’s characteristic attributes! Not me, this was love at first sight. I loved her!

    She is not a regular smart, nerdy, introvert book-worn, she’s so busy, social with her scheduled book club events, trivia competitions (with her straightforward comments, standing up against the unfairness, cheating or any other miscalculation of their earned points, her friends and she are banned from most of the competition places!), movie nights at Arc Light theatres (mostly her date is greasy popcorn)!

    She reads a lot, she drinks wine a lot! ( My God this is definition of me !!)

    She may suffer from ADD, OCD, anxiety and panic attacks! ( OMG this is still me !)

    She has great sense of humor, sensitive observation skills, quite creative imagination. ( I don’t want to look like pretentious but it’s still me! Oh boy! Did I know the author from somewhere????)

    She has a long distance relationship with her mother since she was a little baby( She was left with a nanny and only communication way to her mother were postcards) and no relationship with her father because she doesn’t know who he is. ( Mother part is close but I love my father! Okay, the author is not BB or stalker! That means there are millions of people like me. Good to know not to be alone)

    Didn’t I mention, she‘s so busy with her impeccably detailed and organized schedule, so WHO NEEDS A FAMILY! WHO NEEDS A BOYFRIEND! RIGHT?

    ERRRRRRR! Wrong answer Nina! So sorry, you may answer all the trivia question without blinking or breathing (at least she didn’t suffocate) but she has a crush on Tom who is a member of rival team competing against them at the trivia quizzes.

    And she learns that she has a father who has watched her from a distance, married too many times, lived a joyful life, put her into his will before dying from a sudden heart attack.

    Now she learns that she has brother, sisters, nephews( older than her), grand-nephews, a crowded, crazy, dysfunctional, big family. ( Okay this part is close to me ! For the first time in my life I have so much common with a character))

    Now she wants TO RUN, HIDE, DISAPPEAR! Anything she can do not to connect with those people who fight too much, who resent each other so much, who have so many differences but still they manage to stay together! Isn’t this a classical definition of a regular family?

    I loved the parts about Nina’s worldview changing. As soon as she starts to connect with each member of her family and open her heart to Tom by letting him in, she realizes she still likes to be alone but in the meantime she also enjoys to be with the people she loved deep in her heart!

    This book is about resistance to change but learning to adapt and be brave to share your feelings, be openminded to enjoy different and challenging experiences of life, take risks, embrace your differences, quirks, antics and finally learn to love yourself and share your love without putting any restriction or limitation.

    Yaaaayyyy ! I found my fiction twin! Of course it was easy to give five stars!

    I loved the author’s way of thinking, writing, creating characters that so easy to be resonated. I mostly agree with her comments and observations about LA life. I really laughed so much at those parts, my cheeks still hurt!

    So as soon as it’s released( on July 9th), go and get this book and devour every word of it! Laugh without thinking people giving you weird faces! (They gave me but I handled it maturely. I stuck my tongue!)

    Special thanks to Berkley Books to send me ARC copy via NetGalley( also special thanks to them, too) for exchanging my honest review. ( This part always reminds me of Academy Award speeches but at least this is short one. )

    After reading

    I knew Abbi Waxman was going to be a go-to gal for me and I was all over trying to obtain an early copy of her new release. But alas the gods at the Galley of the Net declined me quicker than a jackrabbit on a date. Lucky for me I have a homey at Berkley (okay, full disclosure, I don’t think said person is aware that she is considered a homey of mine, but rest assured she definitely is) and I got a paperback hook up. And since I’m nothing but fail I read the publication date as 4/9/19 when I perused the “basket of shame” which contains ARCs, immediately panicked that I was over a month late to the party and proceeded to read it over the weekend. I just now noticed that this doesn’t come out until July - which kinda sucks because y’all need to add it to your TBR, but also is kinda perfect because summer is when you should read things that are light and fun and make you smile and this fits the bill perfectly.

    The story here is of Nina Hill. She’s certainly bookish – both an avid reader by hobby as well as a bookseller by trade. Nina is perfectly content to live her quiet, structured life (à la her heroine Monica Geller) consisting of various book clubs, participating in trivia competitions with her friends on their team “Book ‘Em, Dano,” contemplating the invention of the bullet journal and meaningful conversations with her cat Phil. What Nina would have never expected was to discover the father she never knew left her a legacy of a family she never thought she would have upon his passing or that actual romance might come her way rather than just the make-believe kind she was used to experiencing via Jane Austen re-reads and movie viewings.

    Now I know you’re not supposed to quote early copies because they are subject to change before release date. However, (1) rules are meant to be broken and (2) I don’t think they should change one word so Imma post something in order for you to figure out if you’d like to add some Nina to your life this summer. (Spoiler alert: The answer is yes, you do want to add some Nina to your life.)

    Very rarely does a book come along that has me saying . . . .

    It made me have a “smiling’s my favorite” kind of day and I never wanted it to end. All the Starz.

    Abbi Waxman's creation, the book obsessed 29 year old Nina Lee Hill was an absolute joy for me to spend time with, particularly with the mass of literary and cultural references littered throughout this wonderful piece of contemporary fiction with all its comic humour. Set in the offbeat district of Larchmont, LA, Nina works at the independent bookstore, Knights, established in the 1940s. It's the best fit for Nina, an OCD over planner, so Monica from Friends is obviously her favourite character

    Abbi Waxman's creation, the book obsessed 29 year old Nina Lee Hill was an absolute joy for me to spend time with, particularly with the mass of literary and cultural references littered throughout this wonderful piece of contemporary fiction with all its comic humour. Set in the offbeat district of Larchmont, LA, Nina works at the independent bookstore, Knights, established in the 1940s. It's the best fit for Nina, an OCD over planner, so Monica from Friends is obviously her favourite character. Nina is smart, sarcastic, socially awkward and anxious for whom spontaneity and the unexpected throws her for a loop. Books are at the top of the list in her 5 perfect things, they are medication, sanctuary and the source of all good things, nothing has yet proven her wrong and it's little wonder libraries are her idea of heaven.

    Her mom is a famous photographer and free spirit, she has never known her father, and she was bought up and loved by her nanny, Louise, and Khalil Gibran's The Prophet has the most apt saying that defines her, 'You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts' as she lives her life in her off the wall and exciting fictional universe. Amidst her busy, tightly scheduled life of Trivia nights with her team, Book 'Em Danno, numerous book clubs and reading, that are her weapons of self defence, Nina's life has an almighty spanner thrown in it. She discovers a father she never knew about has just died, she is in his will, and is struck numb when she realises she has a huge and disparate family right on her doorstep. Then there is Tom, a member of another Trivia team, a whizz on the subject of sport, Nina's weakest area, annoying, really not a suitable boyfriend for her, after all he is not a reader, but.....she just cannot stop thinking about him.

    Nina struggles to accommodate the idea that life is what happens whilst she has been busy making other plans, and overcome her personal intrinsic belief that 'Books are safer than other people' (Neil Gaiman). Waxman writes a gloriously funny novel with a raft of fantastic characters that lit up my life as I read it. Nina is endearing, a sharp cookie who can wax lyrical on the most obscure of subjects, her brain is a veritable encylopaedia of facts and knowledge, it's just her emotional side that is a challenge and which she needs to work on. This is for all those book worms out there, especially for those for whom books are one of the most perfect elements in an imperfect world, and for anyone else who enjoys well written contemporary fiction with oodles of warmth. Many thanks to Headline for an ARC.

    How could I resist a book about a bookworm? Not just a bookworm, but an only child bookworm that finds solace and peace in books, a child whose mother is absent and father is unknown. Well, until a lawyer appears informing Nina her father had died and she has half-siblings.

    I love the writing style that Waxman uses. Reminiscent of a 19th century novel, complete with witty glimpses of what is to transpire at the start of each chapter.

    I love the writing style that Waxman uses. Reminiscent of a 19th century novel, complete with witty glimpses of what is to transpire at the start of each chapter.

    There’s a dry sense of humor to this book. “He didn’t remind her of herself, but, to be fair, she was a slender 29 year old woman with dark red shirted and freckles, and he had been a rounded old man with white hair and wrinkles, so it wasn’t exactly apples to apples. More like grapes to raisins.” And that’s a quote from the book I can include! One of the funnier ones would probably be banned by GR.

    This book is just plain fun. But it also makes some wonderful points. I just adored how they all discover their similarity, as the weird things that seem to be genetic enthrall me. I found it a delight to read and wanted to spend every waking minute with Nina, her friends and her new found family. Make sure you actually read the daily planner pages that precede each chapter.

    My thanks to netgalley and Berkley Publishing for an advance copy of this book.

    Nina Hill’s life is perfect:

    -She has a job in an old bookstore in the middle of a quaint part of Los Angeles

    -lives in a lovely apartment with a slightly judgemental cat Philip

    -her wonderful friends with freakishly good memories help her rock the competitive trivia quiz world

    -her wonderfully direct photographer mother is on a working assignment somewhere in China

    -thousands and thousands of books with their marvellous fictional world are waiting to be discovered and read

    Nina is quiet, reserved, observant- after all, human interactions can be fascinating, it’s just not something she finds easy to engage in. Take mystery buffs, they are so different from other types of readers- eternally optimistic, they believe in the triumph of good over evil and in their own form of happy ever after.

    You might describe Nina as an introvert. In her own words, being alone helps her replenish energy she loses interacting with others and ‘little islands of silence’ help her navigate ‘the long-distance swim’ of life.

    Another thing that Nina enjoys is planning, setting goals, organising. How else would she be able to fit in all her Book Clubs (Book Bitches for Contemporary fiction, Sneaky Spinsters for golden age mysteries, District Zero for YA, and Electric Sheep Grazing Club -you guessed it!- for Sci-Fi). There’s also a lethal gym class combination of Spoga (Spin and yoga) and Nina’s competitive trivia team. Nina has always had a very active imagination and curious, ready to learn and explore mind which needed its food. If not properly fed (Thank God for school librarians), she’d go into a frenzy of anxiety and focussing on useless tidbits. Of course, anxiety is the real reason why Nina needs to plan and organise everything so obsessively.

    Nina is also attentive, thoughtful, smiley, able to stand-her-ground but not-unwilling-to-recognise-and-correct-her-mistakes. She is the kind of girl anybody would be happy to have as a friend.

    Nina’s mother never told her who her father was. She preferred being labelled a party girl with total disregard to her own reputation to letting Nina know that her father was a much older Hollywood lawyer with a pregnant wife. As Nina’s mother herself had to travel to war zones and other less than wholesome places to raise a child, she found a wonderful substitute in the form of Louise, Nina’s Nanny, who gave the little girl her unconditional love and support. I found extremely poignant what Louise did, faced with Nina’s longing for a father figure in her life.

    When Nina gets a call from a family lawyer who informs her that her father died and that she actually has a large and unusually complicated family, her first reaction is to shut down and say ‘No, thank you, I love my life as it is’. However, she does meet her new relations and discovers her own answer to the question of how much their shared genetics contributes to their extraordinary range of personalities and quirks. Everybody remembers her father differently and Nina herself might be the only person able to piece the true portrait of this mysterious man.

    Nina is surrounded by people who love and care about her: her trivia team mates, her boss and her colleagues, kids from her book clubs (‘You have to work on your banter, sis!’), her half-siblings, nephews and nieces, and of course, Tom, who has a wonderfully complementary personalityto Nina’s. With great difficulty I am trying to restrain myself and not give away either Tom’s job, or Nina’s response to the final question of the quiz championship final. Suffice it to say, they are both super romantic and will make you go ‘Aah’.

    Los Angeles of Nina Hill is a wonderful place full of unexpected treasures and quiet green neighbourhoods tucked in between touristy corners. One of Nina’s hobbies is photography, so we get a rare privilege to see Los Angeles the way she does. ‘I grew up here. Traffic is the rumble of the ocean to me’.

    I fell in love with this book from the first pages, it took me just a few chapters to recognise how irresistibly drawn I was to Nina’s humour and bookish references. The hours I spent in the company of Nina Hill filled me with joy and quiet happiness that only a well-written fictional world can bring. Nina’s journey to discovering her real purpose in life (we knew it all along, but she didn’t) was fun and touching and full of laugh-out-loud moments.

    To tell the truth, if you haven’t read the book, I envy you a bit, you’re about to discover something wonderful.

    Thank you to Edelweiss and Berkley for the ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

I pretty much had a smile on my face the whole time I was reading this book.

    ABBI WAXMAN delivers an interesting, witty, endearing, and beautifully written read here with lovable and quirky characters and a setting that totally captivated and intrigued me. I think reading a book about a bookworm is probably one of the most satisfying, pleasurable, gratifying and validating experiences out there and so relatable to all of us book lovers. I was totally taken and fascinated with Nina Hill’s character and she fully captured my heart. There were so many times I felt a strong kinship to Nina and nodding in agreement to pretty much every aspect of her character and to plenty of scenarios in this book.

    I loved reading Nina’s day planner pages and how they were used as chapter breaks which definitely added a little extra flare to the novel for me.

    Norma’s Stats:

    Cover: Pretty, intriguing, whimsical, eye-catching and a fitting representation to storyline. I absolutely love everything about this cover -- especially the color schemes.

    Title: Appealing, intriguing and absolutely love how perfect the title is to the storyline. The title of this book definitely enticed me to read it. Anything book related in the title I’m in!

    Writing/Prose: Well-written, beautiful, witty, fluid, fun, engaging, and captivating. I totally connected with and absolutely loved ABBI WAXMAN’S writing style.

    Plot: Fun, humorous, touching, memorable, perfectly-paced, absorbing, enjoyable and entertaining.

    Ending: The last line of this book was perfection! Absolutely loved it!

    5 Embrace Your Bookish Life stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!

    Not only did I unabashedly adore Nina and wholeheartedly fall in love with Tom (he definitely made it onto my Top 3 Book Boyfriends List) but I was also completely enamored with the book's entire cast of zany and unique characters. This bookish girl read the entire book with a smile on my face. Each book nerdism, pop culture reference and mention of an introvert's view on life was so relatable!

    As Nina's quiet, organized life is upset by the possibility of love, new family and work issues we watch her grow and adapt to the changes in her life in such a hopeful manner that it left me feeling so content.

    Nina works at a bookstore and she has a full schedule of reading, taking care of her cat and work. She really is happy doing just those things.

    An introvert and pop culture references....yes, please. *forwarned that I'm breaking the rules and posting some quotes from this one because I do as I please*

    Anyways, as I was rambling about. Nina loves her life. She evens gets out occasionally to do a team competition of quiz nights. That's exciting. Plus, there is a cute guy there.

    Then Nina gets a visit at work and finds out that she does in fact have a dad. (Her mom had always said she didn't.) He is dead but still.

    Nina had grown up thinking she had just her nanny and her absentee mother...now she finds out she has lots and lots of relatives.

    So now she must wade into the whole "having a family" thing.

    This book is just pure fun. I LOVED Nina. I related to her book nerdiness and it's fun and fluffy. So much goodness.

    4.5 stars.

    It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me or follows me on any of my social media feeds that reading is one of the most immense joys of my life. Whenever I am asked by someone how I read so many books, I explain in part that reading helps me decompress—days when I don't get the chance to read even for a few moments leave me feeling out-of-sorts and much more tense.

    4.5 stars.

    It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me or follows me on any of my social media feeds that reading is one of the most immense joys of my life. Whenever I am asked by someone how I read so many books, I explain in part that reading helps me decompress—days when I don't get the chance to read even for a few moments leave me feeling out-of-sorts and much more tense.

    Perhaps that love for reading is one of the many reasons I was utterly charmed by Nina Hill, the title character of Abbi Waxman's wonderful, thought-provoking new novel,

    . At times the book—and Nina herself—are almost too quirky for words, but her story captured my heart from the first few sentences, and I don't think it will leave me anytime soon.

    "Nina had looked around and realized she would never run out of things to read, and that certainty filled her with peace and satisfaction. It didn't matter what hit the fan; as long as there were unread books in the world, she would be fine. Being surrounded by books was the closest she'd ever gotten to feeling like the member of a gang. The books had her back, and the nonfiction, at least, was ready to fight if necessary."

    Nina lives a life that leaves her content. She loves her job in a bookstore, she enjoys competing on her tremendously successful trivia team (even though they keep getting banned from different bars), and she keeps her life meticulously planned, even though she's happy to make any excuse to miss yoga and just read instead. Her life may be reasonably solitary, and she may have trouble at times dealing with anxiety (which has plagued her since she was a child), but even when she wonders if there is more she should want from life, she just picks up another book.

    The only child of a single mother who left the nanny to raise her, Nina learns one day that the father she never knew existed (beyond the fact that she wasn't immaculately conceived) knew

    existed, and has recently died, leaving her a beneficiary in his will. Beyond that, however, she suddenly finds that she has brothers and sisters of all ages (her father was married three times), not to mention nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews (some of whom are actually older than she is). Most of them are thrilled to discover a new relative, and Nina is shocked to find how much she enjoys being part of a family.

    Nina is also a little thrown when she realizes she has feelings for Tom, a member of her trivia team's fiercest rival. He's handsome, seems to have a terrific personality, and he knows a lot about sports, which is a subject she's woefully weak on. To top it off, Tom is interested in getting to know her better. But Nina isn't sure she has room in her life for a relationship, what with her job, her new family, and the time she sets aside for reading every day. Plus, the more she realizes how strongly she feels for him, the more afraid she gets, which doesn't feel good at all.

    When a crisis arises that threatens the job she loves and frictions in her newfound family intensify, Nina wants to do what she's always done in the face of trouble: retreat into solitude. She isn't sure if she is able to open her life up to Tom the way he wants her to, and she's not even sure she's ready for the myriad challenges that family can bring.

    Can we change the habits that bring us comfort and security if it means opening our lives up to someone else? How do we allow ourselves to trust someone else when we've always been independent and self-reliant? And, more importantly, can a voracious reader truly find happiness with someone who barely reads?

    There's so much to enjoy about

    . Nina is definitely a unique character who is sometimes difficult to sympathize with, but how can a bookworm like me not love someone like her? This is a story about connection, about opening yourself up to trust and care about others, about family and friendship and finding community, and about a healthy obsession with trivia. But of course, it's also a book about the immense joy of books and reading, and the wonderful feeling of sharing that joy with others.

    "It was the same way with everything Nina experienced; fictional characters were as real to her as the people she met and touched every day."

    I found this book so wonderful, and even if I was occasionally irritated by the quirkiness of it all, Waxman's humor, her heart, and the beautiful characters she created snapped me back to reality pretty quickly. This definitely goes on my list of memorable books about reading and bookstores, and I know it's one I won't forget anytime soon.
