~ Goodreads Monday: Meet Me in the Margins ~

This is a weekly meme where any one can choose a random book from their Goodreads TBR and highlight it. Once you choose a book and create your post, make sure you link and reference the new host, @Budget Tales Book Blog. Eventually, I will try to find a rhyme or reason to my choices, but for now, each week will feature a random one that I mean to read soon!


This Week’s Selection:

Meet Me in the Margins by Melissa Ferguson

Expected publication: February 15th 2022

Savannah Cade is a low-level editor at Pennington Publishing, a prestigious publisher producing only the highest of highbrow titles. And while editing the latest edition of The Anthology of Medieval Didactic Poetry may be her day job, she has two secrets she’s hiding.

One: She’s writing a romance novel.

Two: She’s discovered the Book Nook—a secret room in the publishing house where she finds inspiration for her “lowbrow” hobby.

After leaving her manuscript behind one afternoon, she returns to the nook only to discover someone has written notes in the margins. Savannah’s first response to the criticism is defensive, but events transpire that force her to admit that she needs the help of this shadowy editor after all. As the notes take a turn for the romantic, and as Savannah’s madcap life gets more complicated than ever, she uses the process of elimination to identify her mysterious editor—only to discover that what she truly wants and what she should want just might not be the same. Melissa Ferguson’s latest—a love letter to books, readers, and romance—will leave fans laughing out loud and swooning in the same breath.


I greatly enjoy books about books and this one not only features the main character working on writing her own book, but the setting is a publishing house. For the romance element, I like that the two characters communicate in writing with one of their identities remain a secret making this a nice slow burn story. As I was not a huge fan of the author’s other novel, The Cul-de-Sac War (Review), I am approaching this story with slightly lower expectations than usual, but I have hope that it will turn out well!
