Sheffield’s pop-up bookshop, Novel, is setting up shop permanently.

Pop-up favourite Novel, has set up a permanent home as Sheffield’s smallest bookshop within the much-loved Queen of the Suburbs Coffee Shop in Crookes. 

Started by book-loving couple Katie and Joe in July, Novel began as a pop-up book shop selling a curated selection of the pair’s favourite reads, sifting through contemporary releases to find the most inspiring, innovative, and thought-provoking books out there.

All the books on sale at Novel are recommended by founders Katie and Joe, making the shop more personal and unique than the average high street bookstore. 

Queen of the Suburbs, located at the top of Conduit Road, is a haven for coffee lovers, with the business centred around ethical trading, delicious coffee roasts to drink in or take-away,  plus homemade sweet & savoury treats. 

Having previously had a pop shop at Gerry’s Bakery, Rex Market and Tenaya Wine, Novel will be taking over a 2x2m space behind the recently renovated coffee shop, making it the smallest, and of course, cosiest bookshop in Sheffield. 

Katie Haughey, from Novel, said: “Novel is a place where book-lovers can come by and grab a coffee whilst chatting about their favourite books as well as browse for the next book on their hitlist. We are super excited to have found a more permanent space within Queen of the Suburbs, and can’t wait to welcome our first customers this week.”

Novel will be open three days a week from Thurday to Saturday.
