Thanks to Flatiron for the review copy – all opinions are my own
Another gushing review from me ~ this is one of those books I just want to hug and keep on my forever bookshelf with all of my other books about books. My librarian and book nerd books. Spence has infused this book just the right amount of sass and profanity to prevent it from being preachy, and even when I’m gasping at her judgements of some books (how DARE you speak like that of TWILIGHT?? I mean….?!?) I’m laughing at the same time. I will be starting a journey of attempting to read all of her recommendations because she speaks so passionately about them – just like I tend to when talking about my favorite titles. The library and weeding references are amazing and will resonate with librarians of all types. And honestly, I just want to ask Annie to join my book club and be my best friend. LOVE.
