For the Love of Books by Graham Tarrant - A review

I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Today we are talking about a non-fiction book about books. It's full title is For the Love of Books: Stories of Literary Lives, Banned Books, Author Feuds, Extraordinary Characters, and More, is written by Graham Tarrant and comes out today (June 18th) by Skyhorse Publishing.

According to its synopsis is a  light-hearted book about books and the people who write them for all lovers of literature. A treasure trove of compelling facts, riveting anecdotes, and extraordinary characters, For the Love of Books is a book about books—and the inside stories about the people who write them. You learn how books evolved, what lies behind some of the greatest tales ever told, and who’s really who in the world of fiction. 
From banned books to famous feuding authors, from literary felons to rejected masterpieces, from tips for aspiring writers to stand-out book lists for readers to catch up on, For the Love of Books is a celebration of the written word and an absolute page-turner for any book lover. 

I love reading books like this, books that talk about books, authors and literature in general. This book is all these and even more and I really enjoyed it. It's full of bookish facts and I learned many things that I didn't know and also got some great book recommendations. 

If you love books you need this one and I assure you that you will love it!!

  1. I usually read anthologies or graphic novels when I get in a reading slump, but I think this book would do well for that, too! I'm going to add it to Goodreads. Thanks for sharing your review. 👍✨
