I read it and loved it. It felt like she was talking directly to me as we shared so many book memories...

I loved it too. Wonderful nostalgic read.

I read it and was completely beguiled. To the extent that I read or re-read several of the books mentioned.

I have it on audible. Lovely.

I loved it so much on Audible I bought the paperback
It felt like she was talking about me but a couple of tiny gripes- she's wrong about when Lucy first goes through the wardrobe! And I'm not sure I quite believe she's read all the ones she lists. It did feel as though some were mentioned for the sake of it.
Loved it though.
(if you're interested in beauty,Sali Hughes Pretty Iconic is a nostalgia fest as well, I found the style pretty similar, reminiscing about lovely things from our 70s (mainly) childhood)

Yes, that error really shocked me, such a key moment!
