It‘s pouring outside so I‘ve made myself a cuppa, grabbed a blanket and decided that it‘s the perfect time for a #reread of this fantabulous book. If you haven‘t read it yet, you should do so ASAP. I am so in love with the descriptions of the bookshop setting. If you have kids, make sure you give them this gem of a book. They will thank you forever. 😁 The second book is coming out in Sep which is another perfect reason to reread it now. ❤️❤️

This is the perfect fluffy read for any bookworm. It does have some depth as well because it addresses issues like anxiety, bullying and the dangers of social media. But mostly it‘s about a group of nerdy teenagers who love books more than anything. There is a full review on my blog - clickable link in bio. :)

vumblereads Aww I should pick up this book at the store! I follow the author on her booktube channel, she‘s wonderful. 4mo

The Mysterious Benedict Society | Trenton Lee Stewart

It‘s Sunday and I thought I‘d open a discussion thread for our #buddyread of The Mysterious Benedict Society. Soooo, how did you enjoy the first twenty chapters?? :)

Sarah83 They are really great even if I expected something completely different 😂🤩 4mo
scripturient I like the story but I have to say it‘s not totally blowing me away. It reminds me of Roald Dahl and also the Mister Lemoncello books but I‘m somehow missing the awesomeness of these. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Oh, and Constance is driving me insane!!! She reminds me of a former, very obnoxious colleague (both in character and appearance) and I‘m loathing her with a passion. 🤣🤣 (edited) 4mo
Sarah83 I think, it is often the problem, that many books are quite similar and you get the impression, that one author read the other author's book and made his own thing of it. There aren't so many good individual stories, that doesn't remind us... The book reminds me for example of 'the Incredibles' by Disney. 😂 4mo
ruskigurl16 @scripturient Constance, Constance, Constance. Ugh. But this is book one, so... 😉🤐 4mo
