Must Love Books by Shauna Robinson

Thoughts...

After five years in a dead-end job, Nora feels trapped and desperate. This is also part of question number one in the reading group guide at the end of Must Love Books by Shauna Robinson. She’s absolutely miserable and it oozes off the page just how much she hates her current job. Nora emphatically needs a change. She is uncomfortably wrapped up in herself and how she feels about where she works, what she’s doing, and who she’s working with. Nora's conflicted emotions bleed all over the page. What ends up happening is a journey of self-discovery. She figures out what she’ll do to maintain a job, as well as what her feelings and morals are. For me, it feels like a book-long letter of resignation. Not only from a job she hates but her mental state as well. I wanted to give this character a hug.

From the Cover...
The Bookish Life of Nina Hill meets Younger in a heartfelt debut following a young woman who discovers she'll have to ditch the "dream job" and write her own story to find her happy ending.

Meet Nora Hughes―the overworked, underpaid, last bookish assistant standing. At least for now.

When Nora landed an editorial assistant position at Parsons Press, it was her first step towards The Dream Job. Because, honestly, is there anything dreamier than making books for a living? But after five years of lunch orders, finicky authors, and per my last emails, Nora has come to one grand conclusion: Dream Jobs do not exist.

With her life spiraling and the Parsons staff sinking, Nora gets hit with even worse news. Parson's is cutting her already unlivable salary. Unable to afford her rent and without even the novels she once loved as a comfort, Nora decides to moonlight for a rival publisher to make ends meet...and maybe poach some Parson's authors along the way.

But when Andrew Santos, a bestselling Parsons author no one can afford to lose is thrown into the mix, Nora has to decide where her loyalties lie. Her new Dream Job, ever-optimistic Andrew, or...herself and her future.

Your next book club read touching on mental health, happiness, and the peaks and perils of being a young woman just trying to figure it all out. Nora Hughes is the perfect heroine for anyone looking to get past their own chapter twenty-something and build their storybook life.
