★★★★⁣⁣ (Standard)

★★★★ ⁣⁣ (Mama Scale)


Nina Hill is your normal cat-loving, book-collecting red-head, until she finds out she has a whole lotta family she's never known about before. Nina Hill is a journey about finding your place in the world.


If there was such a thing as adopting your favorite literary characters as real life friends, I'd be snatching Nina Hill up ASAP! She's adorable, she's quirky, and she has a heart of gold. This book FOR SURE won out for me in the leading lady category.

WHAT I LOVED: Nina Hill is one of those books that just gets you. It's not too assuming or unassuming. It's easy to read and full of hilarious experiences, yet it possesses juuuuust the right amount of heart. Also, it has a freaking adorable love story.

WHAT I DIDN'T LOVE: Ya know, if I were to put my finger on anything, it would be Nina's character nuances. I wanted to see a little more quirk from her. But, maybe I was comparing her too much with Eleanor Oliphant. Nina has her stuff, but she is definitely more relatable and maybe that's why she is so intriguing.

Overall, such a lovely little book. A perfect summer read or palate cleanser.


For sure! Absolutely for fans of quirky, bookish characters.
