Goodreads Monday

Goodreads Monday | The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith

Hey friends,

I hope you’re all having a fantastic Monday!

I’m trying to actually get back into the daily blogging. I feel like I’ve been saying that a lot recently, but since I’ve fallen out of daily blogging, getting back into it has been difficult. Fortunately, my schedule for the next few weeks has afforded me some extra time to actually get back into blogging, Instagram, editing videos, and actually reading/relaxing (wild, I know).

Here’s to hoping we’re actually back to the daily posts!

As you’re all aware, today is Monday (at least it still is in the States) meaning it Goodreads Monday!ย For those of you not familiar with this meme, Goodreads Mondays originated on Laurenโ€™s Page Turnersโ€™ blog. To participate, you just showcase a random book from your Goodreads page.

In the first book in a brilliant new fantasy series, books that aren’t finished by their authors reside in the Library of the Unwritten in Hell, and it is up to the Librarian to track down any restless characters who emerge from those unfinished stories.

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.

Initial Thoughts:

Okay, so this is the new “it” book on Twitter and let me tell you, the hype totally got to me. This book sounds like everything I need and may give House of Earth and Blood solid competition for my favorite book of the year.

This book reminds me a lot of the Librarians, which is currently my favorite show. I love the idea of a magical library, where the Librarian character has to protect some sort of magic. Adding the Hell element to it just sounds so freaking cool.
