The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman
What I drank prior: Shots of fireball that were charmingly in Golden Girls shot glasses. Ckearly I know how yo Partay
Spoiler-free Overview: Irene works in the Library a nebulous interdimensional thing that wants books from a variety of multi verse earths that are unique. Irene has to work with a junior associate and is given a case that is complocated enoigh before the multiverses big bad shows up.
Spoiler-free Thoughts: welp. I very much enjoyed this. Speak about a dream world (minus all the drama of the big bad) clearly I fucking love books.
Characters: I don’t actually rememeber names beyond Irene. But Irene is given Chad, a junior, to take on this task. There’s also clearly bitter lady, Cassandra, hunky cop Damien and random sidekicks I won’t name. The main characters were really well written. Damien, Irene, and Chad were all memorable and fun and their thought processes seemed to make sense. The bitch in the corner of the poster was pretty flat and the bad guy was bad for minimal rumored reason…
Plot: Boy was this a fun heist. There were enough twists and turns that I thoight about five people were the bad guy. The way they solved the mystery was a ton of fun, and it seemed well paced. I never found myself just turning the page to get moving but was entranced with what was happening.
Writing Style: No comment? Im too tipsy to say anything else right now
World Building: Mmmm I want to take a bath in the world of the Library. The Library is fucking huge for starters. But Im a big fan of the way they categorize the different universes. The chaos was interesting to be explained and fucking Fae. Literally every time.
What to pair it with: A Gimlet. Something fairly classic that goes down easy
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
