The Bookshop of Yesterdays

A woman inherits a beloved bookstore and sets forth on a journey of self-discovery in this poignant debut about family, forgiveness and a love of reading.Miranda Brooks grew up in the stacks of her eccentric Uncle Billy's bookstore, solving the inventive scavenger hunts he created just for her. But on Miranda's twelfth birthday, Billy has a mysterious falling-out with her mother and suddenly disappears from Miranda's life. She doesn't hear from him again until sixteen years later when she receives unexpected news: Billy has died and left her Prospero Books, which is teetering on bankruptcy--and one final scavenger hunt.When Miranda returns home to Los Angeles and to Prospero Books--now as its owner--she finds clues that Billy has hidden for her inside novels on the store's shelves, in locked drawers of his apartment upstairs, in the name of the store itself. Miranda becomes determined to save Prospero Books and to solve Billy's last scavenger hunt. She soon finds herself drawn into a journey where she meets people from Billy's past, people whose stories reveal a history that Miranda's mother has kept hidden--and the terrible secret that tore her family apart.Bighearted and trenchantly observant, The Bookshop of Yesterdays is a lyrical story of family, love and the healing power of community. It's a love letter to reading and bookstores, and a testament to how our histories shape who we become....

    I received an advanced uncorrected copy from NetGalley for an honest review.

    The Bookshop of Yesterdays is about Miranda, a history teacher on the east coast who's estranged uncle dies and leaves her not only his bookstore in LA but also the clues to a family mystery. The premise is interesting enough and I am always a fan of books about books. My two main problems with this story are the characters and the 'mystery' Miranda is solving . Beyond Miranda and her mother's character (somewhat) they

    Have you ever been in one of those moods where you just want to spend an entire day reading? Luckily, I got an advanced copy of this book just as that mood hit. What an incredibly fun and compelling read! I love books that you actually can't put down, and I found myself just totally consumed by The Bookshop of Yesterdays. Miranda is such a fierce lead character, and the riddles she has to solve are so fun to try and figure out right along with her. Can't recommend this one enough!

    I am predisposed to love books that feature bookshops, but this book has earned it's rightful place in my heart. After her once beloved but now estranged uncle passes, Miranda inherits Prospero Books, which is floundering to keep it's doors open. Her uncle has left her more than a bookstore though, he's also left behind one last elaborate scavenger hunt, like the ones he made for her when she was a child. Each clue leads to a book, which in turn leads to answers behind secrets Miranda didn't kno ...more

    Books about books are just mesmerizing. Even if they're not particularly amazing, something about the premise always seems so magical, yet comfortable...like you're greeting an old friend. And even though The Bookshop of Yesterdays didn't wow me, it was still a little bit like this.

    The Good: Again, the premise is amazing! I love books about books, particularly when there is a bookstore or library at its forefront. Prospero Books seems like it would be an awesome bookstore to visit. You have used

    Easily worthy of 4.78 stars!! Let's round it up to a nice round 5 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    As I have read an advanced reader copy, I do not want to give away too much information. But, I want to go on record stating that The Bookshop of Yesterdays is destined to be one of this summer's great read! Amy Meyerson introduces us to very relatable characters who must navigate through love, loss, friendship and, of course, family drama. Through the heroine, Miranda Brooks, Meyerson asks us to consider how we defin

    A FEW SET UP DETAILS BUT NO SPOILERS.... THIS BOOK IS AS DELICIOUS AS HOMEMADE PEACH ICE CREAM!...with mystery-literary clues sprinkled on top!!!

    “Every family has its unspoken stories. Billy was ours. It didn’t matter whether or not it was sad”.

    Miranda grew up in Southern California as an only child. Her mother tells her that she was named after one of the main characters in Shakespeare’s play ‘The Tempest’. Miranda, the daughter of Prospero, was her mother’s favorite female literary character
