Shelf Control - Aug 19

Shelf Control is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves sponsored by Lisa at Bookshelf Fantasies. Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up!

Want to join in? Shelf Control posts go up every Wednesday. Here's how to jump on board:
  • Write a blog post about a book that you own that you haven’t read yet.
  • Add your link in the comments!
  • Link back to Bookshelf Fantasies in your own post.
  • Check out other posts, and…

Here is a recent Kindle freebie.

BLURB: All libraries are magical. Some libraries are more magical than others.

For Alex Reed, the world is an awkward place and books are her only escape. But when she is selected by a mysterious library to be its new Keeper she discovers that some books can be a lot of work.

Now Alex must balance her new adventures with the incomparable obstacles of being an anxiety-riddled teenager. All this would be completely doable, if only Hank would do as he was told.

DATE BOUGHT: July 11, 2020

WHY I BOUGHT IT: I like to stay in touch with what is being published in the teen and young adult market. In addition to picture books, I write middle grade novels. Since there is some crossover at the higher end of middle grade, it's important to see what is popular. In addition, magic is a neat element in stories for this age group. I enjoy seeing how it is handled in a variety of books. 

Have you read this book? Do you like magic in novels?

A magical library sounds like the perfect setting for a middle grade adventure! This looks like a lot of fun.

I haven't heard of this author, but I do love stories about books and libraries:-)

Doesn't it, Lisa. I'm not even into fantasy all that much, but this one looked so good.

Me, too, Tammy.

Thanks for visiting.
