Witches and fairies are two of my favorite things when it comes to stories. I don't know what it is, but there's something about magic that I love.

Putting on my librarian hat, I bring you another squeeworthy book. This one's not part of a series, and it's a book for sci-fi/fantasy geeks.

Among Others by Jo Walton



About:
In 1979, Mori Phelps ran away from her mother after stopping her from destroying the world. She wound up at a boarding school where she surrounds herself with classic sci-fi/fantasy and tries to put the past behind her. But the magic keeps creeping in.


Why is it Squeeworthy?
Books and the library play major roles in this story, and shows how they can save your life. The magic is very subtle, but is integral to the world. And then there's Wim, who I might be a little in love with.
