A friend recommended me this series saying it is a new twist on the popular fairy tale stories. Cinder is the first book of the The Lunar Chronicles, let’s see how I like it.

The Little Shop of Happy Ever After – Contemporary Fiction
Author: Jenny Colgan
Given a back-room computer job when the beloved Birmingham library she works in turns into a downsized retail complex, Nina misses her old role terribly – dealing with people, greeting her regulars, making sure everyone gets the right books for their needs. Then a new business nobody else wants catches her eye: owning a tiny little bookshop bus up in the Scottish highlands. No computers. Shortages. Out all hours in the freezing cold; driving with a tiny stock of books…not to mention how the little community is going to take to her, particularly when she stalls the bus on a level crossing…
Sounds like a light lovely story with bits of humour and once in a while a book like this is all I need to relax my mind from everything else. To be honest it was the cover design that first caught my attention (yes, I sometimes judge a book by it’s cover) but after reading a little sneak peek I immediatly drawn to the story. Can’t wait to get my hands on it.

Do you like reading? Do you have a special book that changed your life? If so, how?
Happy Monday everyone!
