Lost For Words Reviews

  • Norma * Traveling Sister

    Well what is better than reading a book that speaks to you like a book and has so many references of books that is so easily relatable to? THE LOST FOR WORDS BOOKSHOP!

    THE LOST FOR WORDS BOOKSHOP by STEPHANIE BUTLAND is a wonderfully charming, light, moving, and endearing tale that is set in the greatest place ever, a bookshop.

    Any books that have any indication that it is going to be about a bookstore or books, I’m in, no questions asked. They are by far one of my favourite settings! Also, I hav

    What bibliophile can resist a novel about a charming used bookshop, with even more charming and quirky protagonists? I can't.  To further my interest, I've read some great reviews of this novel by some of favorite fellow bookbloggers. And... did I mention it is set in York, England?  What a package!

    This delightful novel features a memorable protagonist, Loveday Cardew. She has worked for "Lost for Words" for the past ten years, is twenty-five years old, has a nose ring, and several tattoos which

    Loveday Cardew works in a bookshop owned by Archie.

    Working in a bookshop is perfect for Loveday because she is a shy almost introverted person through no fault of her own.

    THE LOST FOR WORDS BOOKSHOP is a lovely read and will make you jealous of Loveday’s job, but not of the heartaches she keeps hidden.

    Besides the books and the bookshop, the characters in THE LOST FOR WORDS BOOKSHOP are the best, especially Archie....loved him. He is a bit on the unorganized and fly-by-night type of person, but

  • Karen

    I enjoyed this story about a quirky young lady named Loveday Cardew, with nose ring and first sentences of novels tattooed on her body, who has worked in a bookshop in York since she was fifteen years old.

    Loveday had spent years in a foster home after a tragedy happened in her family life, and she just has a crazy love for books which makes her job ideal.

    Because of what happened in her family, I don’t think she believes in love for herself, and she just really doesn’t like people anyway... exce

  • Kristin (KC) - Traveling Sister

    *3.85 stars* <-- (Don't judge, book-nerd struggles are REAL)

    A delicate rendering of heartache and forgiveness, and the healing power of a bookshop!


    Give me a cozy bookshop setting, a quirky cast of sarcastic bibliophiles, and a shake of mystery to pepper my pages and I’ll be a happy reader every time.

    LOST FOR WORDS was a lovely read, even if it wasn't a particularly lively one. This author has a unique writing style that shines as though it’s been freshly polished—sophisticated, sharp, and w

    The “Books are our best lovers and our most provoking friends.”

    Books Behave by Loveday Cardew

    I like books cause they don’t care if your knickers match your bra

    If you’ve washed your hair.

    I like books cause they don’t invade your space

    They don’t get in your face.

    I like books cause they don’t mind

    What your heart contains

    Who you’ve left behind.

    I like a book cause it doesn’t give a shit

    When you get to the end what you think of it.

    Books don’t care if you’ve got a degree

    What you watch on TV.

  • Robin Bonne

    3.5 A quick and pleasant read about a used bookstore, a woman with a secret past, and the men who love her. I had a little trouble relating to the main character, Loveday, as she seemed just as closed off to me, the reader, as she did to the other characters in the book.

    Even though I enjoyed this book, there were a few elements that were off to me. I wished for a more suspenseful build up around the ex boyfriend, Rob. I found myself puzzling over Loveday’s choices and reasoning behind her choice

    I am surprised that none of the reviews I have read of Lost For Words have made a play on the title! Lots of five star raves and no one has yet said they were lost for words for what to write about it:) Maybe because it was so good we all have plenty to say.

    Romances are not my thing but this is a romance with a difference. Let's start with that beautiful cover and the fact that the story is set in a bookshop in Yorkshire, England. Every box ticked for me so far. The story starts slowly but as i
