Review! The Last Chance Library by Freya Sampson

This was a sweet, feel-good story about a shy, introverted librarian assistant, June Jones, finding her courage to join an eclectic group of library patrons to come together to try and save their beloved village library. At times it was humorous, sometimes it was sad, but in the end, it was just a lovely story. If you’re a bookworm (which, if you’re reading this, I suspect you might be) I think you’ll really enjoy this book. I mean, it’s a book about books, you really can’t go wrong with that.

Personally, I very much related to June. I’m not quite as painfully shy as her, but I am very introverted and have let fear hold me back more often than I’d like to admit. So seeing June find her voice and finally fight for something that she believed in made my heart happy and gave me hope.

There was quite a cast of characters in this book and I loved seeing how the library impacted each of their lives. Wanting to save it from closure was about much more than a place to borrow books. You can’t help but root for them to succeed in their mission. You’ll have to grab a copy for yourself to find out whether they are successful or not! If you’re looking for an easy read that’ll leave you with a smile on your face (and maybe even a tear in your eye) then you ought to give this one a try.
