“In 1953, two teenagers meet in Mr. Fakhri’s Stationery Shop in Tehran. Roya loves the fountain pens, shiny ink bottles, and the thick, lovely writing paper while Bahman loves Rumi’s poetry and is an activist. They share a love of poetry and continue to meet in the Stationery Shop while their romance grows. Their happy life together is complicated by family tension and political unrest.”
Complicated families…..soul mates…..resilience…..

Have you read The Stationery Shop or is it on your TBR?
I haven’t read a book set in Iran! I try to read books based on other countries often because I think it gives different perspectives, even if it’s fiction!
Diverse reads are always informative in so many ways!
This has been one my TBR for a couple of years! I really do need to get around to reading it.
It’s TBR worthy Gretchen!
Off to check out your review, I also enjoy diverse reads.
Ooh this sounds different! My tbr might topple over lol!
I’m happy to contribute to the instability of your TBR!
I’ve never read a book that takes place in Iran
