Below is my honest, unbiased review of Dear Fahrenheit 451: Love And Heartbreak In the Stacks by Annie Spence.

Dear Fahrenheit 451: Love And Heartbreak In the Stacks by Annie Spence is written in two parts. Part 1 includes all of Annie Spence's charming notes/letters about various books. Part 2 includes various book related topics and book recommendations made to readers by the author.

I love the humor Annie Spence infuses in her book, Dear Fahrenheit 451: Love And Heartbreak In the Stacks as it makes for a fun, fast reading! I also love how short each letter and/or section is in this book as this makes it easy to carry this book along with you and read when you don't have a lot of time to devote to reading... i.e. doctor's waiting rooms, commutes on public transportation, and so on.

The following is a summary for Dear Fahrenheit 451: Love And Heartbreak In the Stacks by Annie Spence from Amazon:
A librarian's laugh-out-loud funny, deeply moving collection of love letters and breakup notes to the books in her life.
If you love to read, and presumably you do since you’ve picked up this book (!), you know that some books affect you so profoundly they forever change the way you think about the world. Some books, on the other hand, disappoint you so much you want to throw them against the wall. Either way, it’s clear that a book can be your new soul mate or the bad relationship you need to end.
In Dear Fahrenheit 451, librarian Annie Spence has crafted love letters and breakup notes to the iconic and eclectic books she has encountered over the years. From breaking up with The Giving Tree (a dysfunctional relationship book if ever there was one), to her love letter to The Time Traveler’s Wife (a novel less about time travel and more about the life of a marriage, with all of its ups and downs), Spence will make you think of old favorites in a new way. Filled with suggested reading lists, Spence’s take on classic and contemporary books is very much like the best of literature―sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, sometimes surprisingly poignant, and filled with universal truths.
A celebration of reading, Dear Fahrenheit 451 is for anyone who loves nothing more than curling up with a good book…and another, and another, and another!
I am giving Dear Fahrenheit 451: Love And Heartbreak In the Stacks by Annie Spence a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
