Top Ten Tuesdays: Fictional Bookstores

Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This
week it is a freebie so I am choosing to post a theme from earlier in the year. Back in October, I did all the thinking around the theme is Favorite Bookstores OR Bookstores I’d Love to Visit. I chose all the books, I just had to add the pictures and the words and I was done. Except I never got to it!  My twist to the theme is that I have focus on fictional bookstores rather than real bookstores. So, here are ten books set in bookstores.

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon - Starting out strongly with one of my favourite boosk ever!

Aria's Travelling Bookstore by Rebecca Raisin - I love that way that Rebecca Raisin writes about food, books, Paris and more!

84  Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff - What a delight this book was!

The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan - I must get back to reading or listening to Jenny Colgan's books!

The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George - I am hoping to visit at least one Paris bookshop soon. I am happy with big or small!

The Camel Bookmobile by Masha Hamilton - I haven't read this book yet but the title is intriguing.

The Last Bookshop in London by Madeline Martin - This book is on my must read soon list.

Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan - this is another bookstore book I haven't read yet. It sounds like fun.

The Bookstore Sisters by Alice Hoffman - I know that this is an extra one but I thought I would share it seeing as it is a really short short story that is a recent release.

So there's my list of Fictional Bookstores.


  1. The bookshop at 84 Charing Cross really existed. It is not fictional and the letters were written by real people, which makes it even more charming.

  2. Bookshop on the Corner is such a lovely read. I hope to get to some more of Jenny Colgan's books soon, as I have two of her holiday books.

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  3. I loved the movie 84 Charing CRoss Road with Anne Bancroft, it's an oldie. I have just requested the book. I like books which feature a bookshop. The Lost for Words bookshop by Stephanie Butman was quite good, IMO.

  4. This is such a fun list. :)

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  5. One of my favorite settings. :-) I love the sound of all of these. I really need to bump Colgan's book on my shelf. I loved her The Christmas Bookshop.

  6. This is a fun topic! Have a great week!

  7. I love books with bookstores and libraries as settings. The only one I've read from your list is the Colgan one. It's fun!

    Happy TTT!

  8. Bookstores are always great places to visit, and some fictional ones seem so much "more" than the ones in real life.

  9. The Last Bookshop In London was a lovely read, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  10. Bookstores are my favorite places, but I don't know if I've ever read a book that was set entirely in one. I should probably change that. :)
