Fiction books about books are some of bookish people’s favorite type of books.
We shared our list of nonfiction books about books, so we wanted to also share a list of fiction books about books.
As always, our lists are all books that we have read, from start to finish. This list is not a complete list of fiction books about books. That list would be very long.
The books on our list are books that we can truly recommend and tell you what we liked and did not like about them. And it is a list that we will keep updating as we read more books about books.
If you have a book about books that you love, be sure to leave a comment letting us know about it.
Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a book about books but so much more. It is a book about books, WWII, The Channel Islands, love, sacrifice, and more. A great book for those that not only love books but love WWII fiction.
The Lost and Found Bookshop is a book that starts with a tragedy and ends with love. At the center of it, all is a bookshop and building that has been in the family for years. It is about family, love, books, community, and more. A couple of sections were a little too PG-13 for me, but besides that, I really enjoyed this one.
The Bookshop at Water’s End includes romance, summer vacation, the beach, the river, a bookstore, and complicated families. That pretty much sums up a good beach read that so many people love. This is another book that had a couple of spots that were a little too PG-13 for me, but if you love beach reads, you will probably enjoy this one.
If you love Jane Austen, The Jane Austen Society, is a fun read. The Jane Austen Society is set in Chawton, England just after WWII. An interesting mix of characters comes together because of their love of Jane Austen. This one does have one or two PG-13 scences in it that I skimmed over.
The Printed Letter Bookshop is about a bookshop in a small town in Illinois. It is about love, friendship, second chances, and forgiveness.
Of Literature and Lattes
Of Literature and Lattes can be read alone, but it is a follow-up book to The Printed Letter Bookshop. It centers around a coffee shop in a small town and of course, it involves books.
The Book of Lost Names is one of those books that stayed with me long after I read it. I have already recommended it to friends. This book would make a great book club book because there is so much in this book. If you love books about libraries and books, this is a great historical fiction read.
The Story Keeper is one of my favorite books by Lisa Wingate. In the book, The Story Keeper, Jen Gibbs is a successful New York editor who finds herself revisiting her past through a manuscript that somehow found its way to her desk. In searching for the answers behind this mysterious manuscript, Jen is forced to face her own past.
The Vanishing Thief by Kate Parker is part of the Victorian Bookshp Mystery series. It is a mystery series based around a bookseller and her bookshop in Victorian London. I read this entire series in just a few days. I loved it. It is hard to go wrong with a cozy mysery based around a Victorian London bookshop
Lucy’s Little Village Bookclub is about a small town library and a book club, but it is about so much more. It is about people, family, real life problems, and how books and reading bring us together. This was a fun summer read for me, but it is perfect for anytime of year.
