After talking about starting our “two person book club” for months, I’m so excited we completed our first book! I originally picked a copy of Words in Deep Blue almost a year ago at one of my favorite used bookstores @bartsbooksojai
. I’ll admit I bought it because I could not get over the gorgeous cover! On one of our many library bookstore trips, Katie and I stumbled across an ARC of the book and it felt like the perfect book for us to start #ksquaredreads
with. What’s better than books about people who love books? .
Words in Deep Blue was a fairly quick read for me. I loved that the majority of the book was set in a used bookstore 😍 And I really loved the idea of the Letter Library, where visitors could leave notes or entire letters within the pages of well-loved books. I need to find a real bookstore with a letter library, I’m a sucker for finding loved books with notes written in them. I enjoyed the story, but I did have some issues with the actions of the two main characters. I know it’s marketed as YA and the characters are young, but sometimes I just wanted to shake them! I’d recommend if you want a quick read about people who love books! ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 -💜Kellisa
This was indeed a great place to start in our #bookclub
! I agree with Kellisa, the main characters had their frustrating moments with their emotional constipation 😂 But I found it to be an enjoyable light read with some funny moments as well. Also if you’re like us and live in the northern hemisphere, don’t be surprised when they state that Summer takes place in January! 😅 ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 So #bookstagram
...what shall the next book be??? 📚-🖤Katie .
