With his pride and her prejudice, what could possibly go wrong?
When the arrogant Blake Hansen steals Addie Preston's promotion at the library, he pretty much rubs her nose in it. But Addie, who dreams of being a full-fledged librarian, decides to stick it out. She loves surrounding herself with books and keeping her father's memory alive in the building where they spent so much time together.
Soon, Addie learns that her beloved library will be torn down to make room for a larger facility, and she has to make a choice. Fight, or let go?
To complicate things, she finds herself attracted to Blake, who is engaged to someone else. Will Blake and Addie ever resolve their differences?

'Turning Pages' was a breath of fresh air. I started reading it solely on account of the theme and the blurb (who doesn't love books and libraries, right?) and was quickly engrossed in the wit and lightness of the story.
Addie is a quirky character who is very sure of her opinions and her way of seeing things. Her personal life has recently gone through some changes and when more changes come in her work life, she resists those as fiercely as she can. By the end, her growth is something that makes you smile and like her even more.
Blake is a very attractive main character, in more ways than one. Although he's not developed as much as Addie is, he's the one who helps her through some of those changes. Their relationship is inevitable and really sweet.
One of the things I really liked was all the veiled references to classic English literature. Delicious! It's also suitable for a YA audience.

I think this is my favorite of Tristi Pinkston's books so far with down to earth realistic characters and situations.

Another win for author Tristi Pinkston, this time in the YA market. Turning Pages is delightful fun for YA and adult readers alike. Excellent.
