Sometimes love means having to broaden your literary horizons

Frankie Rose is desperate for love. Or a relationship. Or just a date with a semi-normal person will do.

It’s not that she hasn’t tried. She’s the queen of online dating. But enough is enough. Inspired by her job at The Little Brunswick Street Bookshop, Frankie decides to take fate into her own hands and embarks on the ultimate love experiment.

Her plan? Plant her favourite books on trains inscribed with her contact details in a bid to lure the sophisticated, charming and well-read man of her dreams.

Enter Sunny, and one spontaneous kiss later, Frankie begins to fall for him. But there’s just one problem – Frankie is strictly a classics kind of gal, and Sunny is really into Young Adult. Like really.

A clever, funny and wryly observed story about books and discovering who you really are.

Loved the Melbourne and literary links and references - sort of a cross between Bridget Jones' diary and Sex in the City. At times it felt a bit juvenile and unbelievable, but I read it on holiday and it was a light and quick read and OK. Our book group was mixed, but we all agreed that it was something different (that we would not normally select) and therefore worth reading.

cute story set in Melbourne!

What a fun, witty, easy to read book! I loved Frankie and all her friends. This book has so many bookish references which made the read even more enjoyable.

Laugh out loud enjoyable!

Loved The Book Ninja- Very readable- in fact couldn't put it down!
A witty, heart warming romantic comedy where I actually laughed out loud on a number of occasions.
Enjoyed the book references scattered through the book.
Highly recommend this one!!!
