Books from the Backlog - The Library of Lost and Found

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  The Library of Lost and Found by Phaedra Patrick

Blurb:  Librarian Martha Storm has always found it easier to connect with books than people - though not for lack of trying. She keeps careful lists of how to help others in her superhero-themed notebook. And yet, sometimes it feels like she's invisible.

All of that changes when a book of fairy tales arrives on her doorstep. Inside, Martha finds a dedication written to her by her best friend - her grandmother Zelda - who died under mysterious circumstances years earlier. When Martha discovers a clue within the book that her grandmother may still be alive, she becomes determined to discover the truth. As she delves deeper into Zelda's past, she unwittingly reveals a family secret that will change her life forever.

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  May is my birthday month and I'm focusing on books involving my favorite thing.  This involves a grandparent/grandchild relationship, a gift from the past, and books so how could I not enjoy this one!


  1. This is a book that has always called to me.

  2. I love books about books. This sounds so good.

  3. I've read this one, has a mystery to it and character growth.

  4. I loved this book! It had a bit of a slow start, but the rest of the story is fabulous! 📘✨
