Are you left-handed or right-handed? (Or can you write with both?) In “The Left-Handed Booksellers of London” (the first Garth Nix book I’ve read!) the left-handed booksellers are fighters (like the body guards against the supernatural) and the right-handed booksellers are the magic/intellectual ones. I’ve been meaning to read a Garth Nix book for awhile now. (Particularly “Sabriel”) But I do tend to prioritize books about books and book lovers, and I read this one immediately. (Thank you to @epicreads for sending me this copy) It takes place in the 80s and the quirkiness of Merlin was one of my favorite parts of this story. He’s one of those bright-side people who is making hilarious quips while simultaneously locked in a battle to the death and I just needed that in my life. (Plus I loved his love for fashion. One day he was rocking leather pants, the next day a skirt with cowboy boots! You never knew what he was going to show up wearing.) But ultimately, this was a story about characters Merlin and Susan coming together to find out what happened to their respective families. Susan has never known her father and Merlin’s mother passed away under odd circumstances. Their worlds come together as they try to find Susan’s father. I just loved that these magical, brilliant, and strong warriors sell books in their free time. If you like books about families, book lovers, unique magic, alternate takes on real world places, betrayals, the 80s, and have a strong vein of levity and fun— “The Left-handed Booksellers of London” was really enjoyable for me. It was easy for me to get wrapped up in the characters and I really loved Nix’s way of telling a story. I can’t wait to read his other books even more now! #thelefthandedbooksellersoflondon #garthnix #booklover #booksellers #London #yahistoricalfiction #bookstack #readmorebooks #readingisfundamental
