Book Review: "Evil Librarian" by Michelle Knudsen
I'll be honest, I got this book for the library on title and cover alone. I mean, how could I not? And then I read it, and oh my goodness is this book fun and completely unexpected. Cyn is so freaking funny - I laughed out loud many, many times. And then the whole evil librarian thing got really creepy too, which I also love. There is also this crush/love story that is adorable. This book has it all!
This book was exactly what I needed to help me out of my reading funk. The writing is so fresh and just what I was looking for. I also have to add that while there is a glaring set up for a trilogy here, there is absolutely no cliff-hanger type situation. This completely stands on its own. And while I would love to spend some more time with Cyn and Ryan and Annie and some other more unusual characters that we met here... I love that it doesn't feel urgent or rushed. The stories will come when they are ready and awesome, or they won't and I am perfectly happy with either option.
I highly recommend this to someone looking for some fun with their creepy and a side of romance, a fantastic best girl friends story with a touch of adventure as well as the strange and unexpected. Just go with it - it is worth it!
