Title: The Book Ninja
Ali Berg, Michelle Kalus
June 1st 2018 by Simon & Schuster Australia
Romance, Contemporary
★☆☆☆☆ (1 Star)

Synopsis (from goodreads):

Sometimes love means having to broaden your literary horizons.

Frankie Rose is desperate for love. Or a relationship. Or just a date with a semi-normal person will do.

It’s not that she hasn’t tried. She’s the queen of online dating. But enough is enough. Inspired by her job at The Little Brunswick Street Bookshop, Frankie decides to take fate into her own hands and embarks on the ultimate love experiment.

Her plan? Plant her favourite books on trains inscribed with her contact details in a bid to lure the sophisticated, charming and well-read man of her dreams.

Enter Sunny, and one spontaneous kiss later, Frankie begins to fall for him. But there’s just one problem – Frankie is strictly a classics kind of gal, and Sunny is really into Young Adult. Like really.

A quirky and uplifting love letter to books, friendship and soulmates.


I’m going to start off by saying that I did not finish this book due to being too annoyed with it.

Before buying this book I have read several good reviews about this book on goodreads and many said that it’s funny. This was why I bought it, so that I could laugh once in a while since I’ve been through a depressed mood lately. So I bought this book expecting a lighthearted funny read, but got disappointed 50 pages in.
I thought that the idea of this book was really interesting and it could have been a lot more than it was.

You may ask yourself what may have annoyed me and I’ll tell you that it was the characters. They annoyed and bored the living hell out of me.
While reading this book I’ve been praying for it to be over soon, because of that I DNFed it.

I just don’t know what to say anymore. The plot could have been more interesting for me personally if the characters weren’t that annoying.

I just hated this book. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
