I finally read The Invisible Library. I fell in love ... hard. With elements reminiscent of some of my favorite stories (Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, Jackaby, and Seraphina, just to name a few), I couldn't help but fall in love with Librarian Irene and the alternative London filled with dirigibles, mythical creatures, and intrigue. I almost couldn't contain my joy when I figured out Kai's secret and I loved Vale's progressive nature as well. I'm not really going into the plot because I didn't know much about it before I went in and was constantly nervous (in a good way) and surprised (in the best way). I do need to reread the last chapter though because it was a bit hard to follow at 4:00 in the morning when I finished my binge read. I think I know what Coppelia was getting at but I need to recheck and make sure.
Once I'm done with that, I have the second book, The Masked City, here already and the third book is on hold. There's a fourth book coming out in December and I will definitely be ready to read it! This is a series I know I will go back to for rereads whenever I need a dose of kickass librarians and mind-controlled alligators.
In love (times ten),
