About the Book
Title: Magic by Midnight
Series: The Librarian’s Chronicles #1
Author: Allison Bass
Publishing Date: July 1st, 2019
Genres: YA Fantasy/Retelling
Felicity, a young librarian, is certain her only adventures will come in the form of the books she reads. When her uncle reveals that the palace librarians have the secret gift of interpreting fairy tales, stories that control the fate of the kingdom, she is thrust into a new world of magic. Between rescuing Cinderella, charming a prince, and battling an evil force trying to sabotage the fairy tale, Felicity realizes orchestrating a happily ever after ending is going to take all of her wits.
However, it’s her heart that is put to the real test. She finds herself having to choose between her own happy ending or protecting the fairy tale she’s been tasked with completing. After the clock strikes midnight, Felicity discovers her world will change forever and some fates are stronger than magic.
What do librarians and magic have in common with me? An easy hook to make me NEED it. Magic by Midnight was just such a delightful read that gave me both of those aspects and then some! Plus it has the whole fairy tale aspect! And while I say I’m a snob regarding fairy tale retellings, I generally wind up liking the ones I pick up. I was especially happy since this wasn’t another Beauty and the Beast retelling, but the featured fairy tale was Cinderella.
It’s been a while since I’ve read a fantasy book, which is a shock since it’s my favorite genre, so I was really excited to pick up this one for my stop on the tour! And it was the perfect book for my cravings because it had all of my favorite fantastical elements! Plus it was just such a fun read, which is another really important thing for me right now. I have been needing things that just take my mind off of everything.
I also really loved all of the characters. They were all so quirky and snarky and unique and cinnamon-bun-y. But even the side characters tried to steal the show. Which, I love when I can love side characters! Everything just came together wonderfully and it was such a fun read!
