Library of the Unwritten by AJ Hackwith
Each month our staff picks additional recommendations based on our Dandy Roll Book Club pick. We're recommending House on the Cerulean Sea for those of our members who would like to read a novel about morally grey characters based on our March pick, A Tip for the Hangman by Allison Epstein.
Courtney, co-owner and founder of Dandy Roll Book Club, recommended The Library of the Unwritten, the first book in the Hell’s Library series by A. J. Hackwith. The story follows Claire, the head librarian of Hell’s library, a vast collection of unfinished or abandoned novels; Claire’s job is to preside over the volumes and make sure that the characters do not escape their pages. When a Hero does exactly that, Claire has to track down the character before they can reach the author. Along the way, things go very awry, and Claire is sucked into an adventure beyond her wildest imaginings.
