The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

We rated this book:


Nina Hill is the epitome of an introvert. She works at a bookshop in Larchmont and adores her cat. She occasionally talks with her world-traveling mother, who isn’t particularly concerned about keeping in touch with Nina. Driven by her important schedule, which includes trivia nights, book clubs, movies, and an entire evening once a week to read alone in her apartment, Nina cannot be bothered with a serious relationship. But when she begins to have feelings for Tom, an attractive sports enthusiast who competes on an opposing trivia team, she questions whether or not it is good for her to be emotionally withdrawn. To complicate matters more, a lawyer reveals to Nina the identity of her father, who apparently has a large family of his own; now, for the first time, Nina must figure out what it means to be a part of a family.

Dripping with wit and sarcasm, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill is a delightful romantic comedy that will please anyone wishing for a light, entertaining read. Abbi Waxman’s writing flows easily, though most of the emotions in this book feel shallow and contrived, and Nina’s character, as wonderfully quirky as she is, is painfully cliché. Regardless, Waxman’s third novel is an ideal book to pack for summer vacation.
