My first finish of 2018 and what can I say? I really really enjoyed it! I think this book first came to my attention on one of the book blogs I follow when I read the blurb and found it had tons of things I enjoy.

I won this book in a Netgalley contest and enjoyed it more than I expected to. The book features badass librarians who travel to parallel universes to steal books, and the adventures a certain librarian has along the way.

Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, a shadowy organization that collects important works of fiction from all of the different realities. Most recently, she and her enigmatic assistant Kai have bee...
