The Library of Lost Things
By Laura Taylor Namey
YA Contemporary
Hardcover, Paperback & ebook, 384 Pages
October 8th 2019 by Inkyard Press


From the moment she first learned to read, literary genius Darcy Wells has spent most of her time living in the worlds of her books. There, she can avoid the crushing reality of her mother’s hoarding and pretend her life is simply ordinary. But when a new property manager becomes more active in the upkeep of their apartment complex, the only home Darcy has ever known outside of her books suddenly hangs in the balance.

While Darcy is struggling to survive beneath the weight of her mother’s compulsive shopping, Asher Fleet, a former teen pilot with an unexpectedly shattered future, walks into the bookstore where she works…and straight into her heart. For the first time in her life, Darcy can’t seem to find the right words. Fairy tales are one thing, but real love makes her want to hide inside her carefully constructed ink-and-paper bomb shelter.

Still, after spending her whole life keeping people out, something about Asher makes Darcy want to open up. But securing her own happily-ever-after will mean she’ll need to stop hiding and start living her own truth—even if it’s messy.

(Affiliate links included.)


Each chapter of this book starts off with a quote from a book, so I wanted to represent some of those here. A lot of the chapters reference Peter Pan specifically. I also wanted to reference Darcy's love of books, hoarding, San Diego and parties on the beach, and the bookstore she works at. To find the original pictures as well as more that aren't included here, check out my Pinterest board here.
