The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman
The Bookish Life of Nina Hill - Abbi Waxman

TITLE:  The Bookish Life of Nina Hill


AUTHOR:  Abbi Waxman



"The only child of a single mother, Nina has her life just as she wants it: a job in a bookstore, a kick-butt trivia team, a world-class planner and a cat named Phil. If she sometimes suspects there might be more to life than reading, she just shrugs and picks up a new book.

When the father Nina never knew existed suddenly dies, leaving behind innumerable sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews, Nina is horrified. They all live close by! They're all—or mostly all—excited to meet her! She'll have to Speak. To. Strangers. It's a disaster! And as if that wasn't enough, Tom, her trivia nemesis, has turned out to be cute, funny, and deeply interested in getting to know her. Doesn't he realize what a terrible idea that is?

Nina considers her options.

1. Completely change her name and appearance. (Too drastic, plus she likes her hair.)
2. Flee to a deserted island. (Hard pass, see: coffee).
3. Hide in a corner of her apartment and rock back and forth. (Already doing it.)

It's time for Nina to come out of her comfortable shell, but she isn't convinced real life could ever live up to fiction. It's going to take a brand-new family, a persistent suitor, and the combined effects of ice cream and trivia to make her turn her own fresh page.




Somewhat predictable but entertaining, cute and pleasant.

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill
The Bookish Life of Nina Hill - Abbi Waxman

Nina Hill is doing just fine. She has a job at a bookstore, she gets plenty of time to read, and she has an adorable home filled with books and her cat. However, she starts thinking about one of her rivals at trivia night. And things get shaken up for her even more when a father and family she never knew about pushes their way into her orderly life.


I loved Nina so much! She has her planner and loves her schedules. She knows the most ridiculous trivia (except about sports). She realizes that her mother was not the best mother, but there is no lasting resentment there. I really loved how the book shows us how shaken things get for her when she's contacted by a lawyer and informed her biological father has passed away. Watching Nina trying to weave into a family that has it's own issues while trying to work out what is going on with her boss at the bookstore and trying to decide if she is interested in a guy named Tom.


The writing was great along with the little facts dropped about books here and there. There is some dialogue that is so snappy and hilarious that at one point I laughed for ten minutes straight (see one of the woman discussing a gentleman caller and how he talks to "her" body.) The development of the secondary characters was fantastic. I honestly didn't care too much about Tom's asides in this book, but didn't mind them after a while. 


The flow of the book was great from beginning to end. And I thought the ending was so cute.

Making A Play - Abbi Glines

This book is #5, in The Field Party series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and have a better understanding of the series, I recommend reading this series in order.


Ryker can have any woman he wants.  He knows it, they know it.  With the new school year brings Aurora, a teammates sister.  He is drawn to her and they connect quickly.


Aurora is deaf.  This is her first chance to go to a "regular" school.  She wants to be part of the normal her football hero twin gets to have. Only her brother is overprotective and her father is overcontrolling.


Surprises are in store for many of the characters in this story,  I love that we revisit our favorites,  This series is fast becoming a favorite of mine!  Looks become the new banter in this installment, and the sexy is so amazingly hot!  The main characters do not know what hit them as they try to navigate high school and first love.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Losing the Field - Abbi Glines

This is book #4, in The Field Party series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoiler, I recommend reading this series in order.


Tallulah is one fat joke away from losing it.  When she hears the love of her life laughing with someone about her looks, it is really the final straw.  She makes some well timed changes and sets up a plan.


Nash had always been protective of Tallulah.  He made no secret of their friendship.  Now, when the "NEW" Tallulah comes to school and ignores him, it is like a knife to the chest.  On top of everything else that is going on........


This book was the best yet in the series.  I love the real feelings and simple truths.  These characters were already on their way to being in love and the year of pain just simply sealed the deal.  I love that we still have access to our other fave characters too.  This is a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 The fifth book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Field Party series—a southern soap opera with football, cute boys, and pick-up trucks—from USA TODAY bestselling author Abbi Glines.
Ryker Lee is finally enjoying his senior year—he has great friends, hangs out with hot girls, and is on track to get a football scholarship that will set him up for college. Despite this, a small part of him wonders if there’s more to life than parties and meaningless hookups—and if football even means as much to him as it does to his fellow teammates. And when he meets the new girl at school, his world totally changes…
Aurora McClay is new to Lawton. She’s grateful that her twin brother, Hunter, is star of the football team and can help her adjust to her new school, but she’s notgrateful at how overprotective he is over every person she meets. Just because she is deaf does not mean people have to treat her differently. When she meets Ryker Lee, the two of them spark an instant and intense chemistry, one that proves to be controversial not only because of Ryker’s reputation as a player, but also because of Aurora and Hunter’s father’s bigoted views about who Aurora can and can’t date.
Aurora and Ryker know in their hearts that they are meant for each other. But can their relationship endure the turmoil of rumors and prejudice?
