Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Libriomancer: (Magic Ex Libris Book 1)

Libriomancer - Jim C. Hines The main character Isaac is a retired libriomancer. As a libriomancer Isaac has the power to reach into books and take items written about out of the book. Since he is retired he is now a librarian with a magic spider that when something bad is going to happen the spider goes up in flames. Vampires come to beat some information out of Issac, information about the magic community he has left. This fight brings retired libriomancer back in the magical world full force.

I love books that are about books, librarians, and reading. Finding a fantasy book about this character, the libriomancer, is probably a power that every lover of books and reader would love to have. Imagine taking excalibur out to fight with. A space age stun gun to stun enemies. Some libriomancer even took characters out of books like a dryads.

This book reminded me of The Magicians by Lev Grossman but not as serious. There was a lot more fun and humorous moments. The fact that the book says this is the first book in a series makes me jump for joy.

The only issue I had with the book is that it seemed short. I wanted more to read! I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series and maybe I should check out more books by Jim C. Hines.
