This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. It is now being hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. To participate, choose a random book from your GoodReads TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then something interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read it. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
I will be starting back to work next week, after a very nice summer break. So I thought I would look for a book that had to do with either schools or with libraries. It was pretty easy to find something, but this is the one that caught my eye. It came out a couple of years ago, but I never got around to reading it. I’m kind of glad as the whole series is complete so no waiting a year between books!
The Library of the Unwritten by A. J. Hackwith
Publication Date: October 2019
Summary from GoodReads:
Many years ago, Claire was named Head Librarian of the Unwritten Wing—a neutral space in Hell where all the stories unfinished by their authors reside. Her job consists mainly of repairing and organizing books, but also of keeping an eye on restless stories that risk materializing as characters and escaping the library. When a Hero escapes from his book and goes in search of his author, Claire must track and capture him with the help of former muse and current assistant Brevity and nervous demon courier Leto.
But what should have been a simple retrieval goes horrifyingly wrong when the terrifyingly angelic Ramiel attacks them, convinced that they hold the Devil’s Bible. The text of the Devil’s Bible is a powerful weapon in the power struggle between Heaven and Hell, so it falls to the librarians to find a book with the power to reshape the boundaries between Heaven, Hell … and Earth.
I just love that cover and I think that is what initially drew my attention to the book. I am also up for any book that has to do with libraries or hell for that matter, and the two combined I’m sure will be awesome! I have already put the book on hold at the library, so hopefully I will have my hands on it soon!
Until next time, Happy Reading!
