The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman Review

My best friend (shout-out to the lovely Tashi) recommended this one to me because we have the same taste in books, and actually lent me her copy to read. Right then, onto the review…

Although I’m a big fan of books about, well- books, and love reading them, the first half or so of The Invisible Library was very slow-paced for me, maybe too slow-paced? It took me a good few chapters to really get into it. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the characters (the good-guys at least), particularly Irene and Kai as well as the relationship that evolves between them – is that the right word? Evolves?- though not quite romantic despite the little bit of flirting that goes on between them that you have to pay close attention when reading, to spot- but I don’t think I’ll be reading the others in the series, as the book itself just didn’t resonate enough with me. 

That being said, I rated The Invisible Library  4* but that was mostly down to my love of Irene and Kai-  would have given 3 1/2 , but Goodreads doesn’t allow to give 1/2 votes.

Have you read this yourself? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Let me know in the comments , or post a link to your Goodreads.com review if you’ve reviewed it there. You can also find me there : Goodreads  feel free to add me as a friend or/and have a scroll through the books I’ve read if you’re looking for a new read.

Stay true to yourself, and never let anyone deter you from the path you wish to take.

P.S I’ve started reading The Watchmaker of Filigree Street two days early, so you’ll probably get a review within the next week or so haha.

Later today: Leonard Hofstadter’s Long Lost Cousin chapters 7 & 8 (Georgia and Leonard), and then July Faves & August TBR – since I’ve finished all my July TBR early.
