REVIEW: EVIL LIBRARIAN
Humour, drama, the supernatural, and an awesome protagonist, what more could readers ask for? Evil Librarian is one of those books that captures your attention almost before you even finish the first page, it compels you to keep turning the pages and it never gets boring.
I enjoyed reading every word of Michelle Knudsen’s debut YA novel, and can’t wait to devour more of her work. Packed with references to The Sound of Music, Les Misérables, Alice in Wonderland and Into the Woods you can’t help but laugh at the distinction between the world of musical theatre and the evil that lurks around the corner in this book. It is witty, dramatic and utterly outrageous. Like really, an evil librarian, pfft!
This book displays the perfect balance between all you want out of a high school drama, and the supernatural, and it executes it flawlessly! I encourage everyone who even seems captivated by the title or cover of this novel to explore it. Who knows, maybe you will even find yourself comparing demons to Santa Claus soon after finishing this page-turner!
