The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman is a book about books. But wait! It’s more than that! This story has a hint of romance, family dynamics & so many pop culture references! The trivia nerd in me squeals with delight!
Loving The Dialogue
First, I love the way Abbi writes the dialogue is fantastic. It’s easy to read, gives readers an inside look at the inner thoughts of Nina. Honestly, Nina Hill is a trip. She’s unique, quirky, original & I love the way her brain works. While reading, I took many a snapshot photo because there are so many lines that resonated with me. Especially the part about speaking in song lyrics.
Fun, Clever & Feel Good
Read The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman if you’re in the mood to laugh, smile & warm your tired heart. I would re-read this book in a heartbeat. Truthfully, this is a perfect selection for a book club & it’s definitely a book you want to let your friends borrow. Bookworms, pop culture aficionados & anyone who loves a read that makes you chuckle will love Nina.

Abbi Waxman was born in England in 1970, the oldest child of two copywriters who never should have been together in the first place. Once her father ran off to buy cigarettes and never came back, her mother began a highly successful career writing crime fiction. She encouraged Abbi and her sister Emily to read anything and everything they could pull down from the shelves, and they did. Naturally lazy and disinclined to dress up, Abbi went into advertising, working as a copywriter and then a creative director at various advertising agencies in London and New York. Clients ranged from big and traditional, (AT&T, Chase Manhattan Bank, IBM, American Express, Unilever, Mercedes-Benz) to big and morally corrupt (R. J. Reynolds) to big and larcenous (Enron). Eventually she quit advertising, had three kids and started writing books, TV shows and screenplays, largely in order to get a moment’s peace.
Abbi lives in Los Angeles with her husband, three kids, three dogs, three cats, a gecko, two mice and six chickens. Every one of these additions made sense at the time, it’s only in retrospect that it seems foolhardy.
