Book Recs: Stories about Book Lovers

I have a very niche favorite subgenre which I call “Books about Books” – which is essentially books featuring books, book lovers, authors, or any fantasy world whose magic is related to books. And I always get the feeling that us book lovers really enjoy reading such stories because we can relate to them on a deep level. Β And that’s why I wanted to share some of the favorite books with these themes with you all….

The Invisible Library series is the first one that comes to mind because the whole existense of the muti-verse depends on rare books and there is a Library at the center of it all. And I especially love it that Irene, our Librarian is a quick witted badass woman who is an expert at getting herself out of troubling situations.

Sorcery of Thorns is another delightful fantasy in a similar vein with Great Libraries and Librarians who also happen to be fighters. And the best part of this book are the magical grimoires which have a weird fascination with our main characters.

The Secret Book and Scone Society may essentially be a cozy mystery series, but our main character is a bookshop owner and Miracle Books has become one of my favorite fictional bookstore which I wish was real. The joy of reading and loving books comes through a lot in this series, and it’s also full of wonderful recommendations for all kinds of book lovers.

Book Boyfriend

The title of this book, Book Boyfriend is someone we all wish we had in our lives because the love interests in books are way more awesome than in real life. And the book definitely lives up to it because the hero is amazing. And the icing on the cake is that the hero is a romance author and the heroine is a book blogger, so this felt like a book written just for me. And the meet cute and the dates that the characters go on…. straight out of my dreams!!!

pulp

Written in two timelines, Pulp is a coming of age story of two young women – one in the present day, trying to find the identity of an author whose book she stumbles upon by accident; another woman in the 50s who accidently discovers lesbian pulp fiction which puts her on a journey to define her own sexuality. This book really shows us the power of the written word, while also giving us some insight into queer history of the US.

I have only read two books – The Eyre Affair and Lost in a Good Book in the Thursday Next series but it was so much fun. This is a alternate universe where time travel is possible, along with being able to jump into fictional words and meeting fictional characters. These were such a delight to read and I hope I will read the rest of them soon.

A story about Hell’s Library which has unfinished books, whose characters can walk out of them and the Librarian who is tasked with keeping them safe – this is an absolutely fun adventure tale full of myths and legends, and I would definitely recommend.

The Little Paris Bookshop may not be my personal favorite book, but I can’t deny that it has some of the most beautiful quotes and passages about books and reading and what it means to us book lovers. And there are hordes of book recommendations as well.

  1. I’ve heard of The Invisible Library but didn’t realise it was a whole series and I have Sorcery of Thorns already on my TBR and to be honest you now have me with ‘cozy mystery’ for The Secret Book and Scone Society which just sounds 100% my kind of thing! I also love books about books or characters who loves books and am surprised there isn’t more of them. I always think of The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon which is dark but really brilliant.
