Happy Tuesday, dear readers! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is all about bookstores, so I decided to look at fictional bookstores that I want to visit – if only they actually existed! What is something about a bookstore that makes you want to check it out? For me, it’s got to have a certain charm (I mean, besides the charm of all those books in one place haha) and a definite cozy vibe going on. These fictional bookstores fit the bill for me. What about you?

What about you? Are there any fictional bookstores that you would want to visit if they existed in real life? Which of the bookstores on my list have you visited on the pages of their books?
I visited Hope Between the Pages, The Printed Letter Bookshop and The Secrets of Paper and Ink. I recommend Bookshop of Secrets by Mollie Rushmeyer
OH! Yes! I haven’t read that one yet and meant to include it as a ‘looking forward to’ title – but I forgot. Argh. Thank you for mentioning it, Lucy!
Some of these are my faves too. Loving the names of the all!
Glad you like The Cozy Shelf!
These are great fictional bookstores! What a great twist.
thanks, friend! 🙂
I did bookstores today, too. We have completely different lists, and that’s so awesome!
I included 2 bookstores in my post, All The Shops. Reay’s made the list, as well as Bookshop By The Sea by Denise Hunter. So many great bookstore settings. I loved the bookshop in Hidden Among The Stars too.
I put the same spin on my list today and I have two of your books on mine – Body and Soul Food and Elementary She Read. 🙂
I have only read three of these!! I need to investigate the others 🙂 Great list!
I had Deck the Shelves on my shelf for a while, but cannot remember if I still do (that cover is cuuute!). I still have Katherine’s though and I really must give that one a read. Her books are always good.
There’s a familiar one there! Printed Letter Bookshop is one I’ve read though there are a couple more that look interesting. I thought this week was going to be easy on my TBR 🙂 Hope you have a great week and time to enjoy a good book.
