I loved Legends and Lattes so much, but Bookshops & Bondedust by Travis Baldree sadly didn't manage to hook me as much.

This story is less cosy, and instead has more of a typical fantasy plot. I would have loved to read more about the bookshop, the daily running of it, and just the slice of life kind of story.

The fantasy aspect was too low key to satisfy me as an action sort of story, but too much to give me the comfortable and warm feeling.

The side characters mostly stayed a bit blank, especially the love interest, but there are two I really loved. So that's also not bad, but not a favourite bit either.

It's still an easy and quick read, and I don't regret the time or money spent, however it didn't leave a lasting impression like Legends did.

After a bit of a reading slump, this was the perfect book.  It has beautiful language, and the setting is cozy and pleasant.  There is more adventure in this than in Legends and Lattes I feel, but is a welcome addition to the flow of the story.  Satchel was my favorite character, and was so unique, funny and absorbing.  This is a high quality book, which lives up the the world Legends and Lattes started.  I didn't quite cry, but I was close at several points.  The writing is so fresh and funny, that this is a perfect palate cleanser after a reading slump!
