    1. Not sure how I feel about this book.Hmm,I have a love hate relationship with this book.I love the fact that library and books are a big part of this story,but on the other hand I don t think I really liked any of the characters.I m quite fond of Anna,but she can be annoying sometimes.There s a lot of things I didn t like,including the ending,but I m giving this book 3 stars because I enjoyed reading it and I loved Anna s step children and Pongo,of course.Things I liked 1 Like I said,I really lik [...]

    2. The Secret of Happy Ever After revolves around a bookstore Anna is given the chance at her dream job and run a bookstore leased by her friend Michelle In the course of the year, many events happen, and they both predictably come out better for it I think what made this book really great was Michelle It s easy to write a book that s full of book lovers, so the inclusion of an extremely business minded person like Michelle made for a great contrast I can actually understand her arguments, and I qu [...]

    3. E t o bom leres livros assim, cheios de ternura,com personagens simp ticas e tamb m os de quatro patas Muito bom.

    4. This started as a really fun and mostly quite light slice of life romance novel, set around a small town and bouncing between two POV characters, one of whom runs a homewares store and the other of whom winds up managing the bookstore next door All the delightful wallowing in books especially the kids books was really great and totally up my alley, and I also really enjoyed that the author did a great job showing an existing relationship and how both parties had to work at it, rather than just b [...]

    5. Liked Did not love I guess I could pin that down to reading 2 books in a row by the same author, but I know it had nothing to do with it I identified a lot with Michelle, yet I feel like I never really broke down the walls she built up around herself Oh, the irony is not lost on me, believe me I loved her relationship with Rory she thinks he s messy, he thinks she has a Knick Knacks shop and how it evolved throughout the book I felt a huge sympathy for Anna She s like this Superwoman handling ev [...]

    6. Nice book great, nothing bad Ending is a bit abrupt and a little too happily ever after I was expecting a little fireworks at the end While I like kids books, the references were a bit too much of it for my tastes I have a 9 year old daughter and sorry, in today s world, they just aren t enthralled with Little Women and neither was I 40 years ago There are many many amazing books written by wonderful children s authors today and the March sisters just aren t relatable SORT OF SPOILER Seems to m [...]

    7. Apesar das personagens e das hist rias de cada uma delas, ser uma grande atra o no livro, o que eu gostei realmente foi o cen rio onde a ac o se desenrola Se ao in cio o foco era apenas a loja de Michelle, a partir do momento em que entra no espa o, a livraria da Anna, o enredo torna se muito melhor Porque tudo muito melhor com livros, e um livro sobre livros quase perfeito.opini o completa cronicasdeumaleitora.

    8. Um romance fofinho que termina da forma que imaginamos quase desde as 1 s paginas, mas vezes sabe bem ler um livro assim, que n o nos d muito que pensar Podia ser um pouco mais pequeno, n o era preciso ser t o longo pois tive a sensa o de que a escritora estava a fazer render o peixe mas foi sem duvida uma leitura agrad vel.

    9. Mysig bok med en gnutta romantik och v rme Och mycket k rlek till b cker som f r en bokmal som mig att m bra

    10. I would have given this novel two stars, but for the delicate way Dillon presented being a stepmother, and feeling as though you are a bit part in your own story Really effectively done, and particularly poignant for me as I find myself in this position these days.What failed to light this novel up was the balance There wasn t masses of plot to begin with, but it was stretched so thoroughly over 450 pages that it became thin, and then everything was tied up with neat ribbons in just a few pages, [...]

    11. Gosto de um bom livro aconchegante De uma hist ria que se destaque pela beleza da escrita e pelas imensas voltas e reviravoltas do enredo, mas que, no final, me deixe com um sorriso perp tuo nos l bios Acima de tudo, gosto de percorrer viv ncias incompletas que buscam, fervorosamente, aquele pedacinho de felicidade, de aceita o, de conforto que, demasiadas vezes, vemos escapar nos das m os Este livro assim purificante, enternecedor, um aut ntico b lsamo para a alma.Segredos para um final feliz , [...]

I enjoyed this book It was a nice, easy read and there wasn t anything really wrong about it I wouldn t call it a favourite but it was a good one to spend a few days of Christmas break on I liked that there was a bookstore, and at first I thought all the references to old childrens books were fun I, too, loved such books when I was a kid, so I really enjoyed this at first I haven t read all of the books mentioned, but most of them I loved Little Women and books like that, and I can definitely re [...]

    19. A book that mentions other books, is always going to be a winner with me I m also a sucker for Listopia on , so I thought I would use my little cat shaped post its to keep track of all the books mentioned to make a list when I was finished Well, I was getting through a lot of post its and even had to commit the cardinal sin of turning the pages down something I would NEVER do under normal circumstances Turns out there is a list of the books in the backever it doesn t list ALL the books so I didn [...]

    23. This is the second of Lucy Dillon s books that I ve read, the first being Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts and I came away from that one feeling vaguely disappointed The Secret of Happy Ever After didn t leave me disappointed I fairly sped through this in an evening I don t whether it was the nostalgia from all the memories of childhood reading or the two main characters just being so empathetic and realistic, but I absolutely loved this The plot was both funny and heartbreaking in various places and [...]

    24. Regalatomi per il mio compleanno, questo libro stato una piacevole scoperta Di mia iniziativa, probabilmente, non l avrei mai comprato per il semplice fatto che nell ultimo periodo mi sono concentrata pi sul genere thriller.E una lettura piacevole, scorrevole e alla portata di tutti L autrice ha un modo di scrivere semplice, che arriva immediato e permette di non perdersi ma di rimanere costantemente concentrati E una storia di amicizia, di amori sbagliati e di rinascita Nel mio caso, mi sono ri [...]

    25. Die Geschichte h tte man auch in einem Buch unterbringen k nnen, dass halb so dick ist Vielen unwichtigen Stellen wird zu viel Platz gegeben Ich habe zwischendurch mal 20 Seiten bersprungen und trotzdem nichts verpasst.Au erdem fand ich die Hunde berfl ssig Mag daran liegen, dass ich kein Hundefreund bin.Die Charakteren waren teilweise richtig toll die Kinder , aber manchmal auch einfach zu anstrengend die Erwachsenen.Die Geschichte war insgesamt nett, aber vorhersehbar Ein bisschen mehr Humor w [...]

    27. For the most part, I really enjoyed this book I found it sweet and cozy and wanted to read about the great book shop However, there were times that I disliked every character, or maybe it was just the way they were acting at the time I guess this makes it true to life though everyone acts badly at one time or another, and relationships don t go smoothly all the time As the title of the book says though, by the ending things were working out happily for everyone I would love to revisit these ch [...]

    28. This was truly a book about happy ever after and how life isn t what you expected No one is perfect, everyone makes mistakes This book proves that I used a lot of time reading this book But I m happy I didn t rush it I finished it now the morning I m off to study abroad in Leeds I m so scared but by reading the book about the secret of happy ever after, it made me calmer Everything s going to be alright.
