As a librarian, I read a lot of books. Some are interesting, others I never finish, and then there are the Squeeworthy Books. These are the books and book series that I fawn over. I can't get enough of them. I'm right there at the book store or on my ereader or the first in line at the library to get my hands on the newest ones.

So that's what this (hopefully) weekly post is all about - me geeking out over my favorite books. They're not reviews, just a lot of fawning. And no, no one is paying me to do this.

Please tell me about the book that make you squee in the comments. I'm always on the lookout for new ones to read.

Today's Squeeworthy Book is actually a series - The Esther Diamond series by Laura Resnick.

Books in the Series:
Disappearing Nightly
Unsympathetic Magic
The Misfortune Cookie
(November 5, 2013)

Esther Diamond is a working actress in New York City. She isn't famous or anything, but she's doing okay. While understudying in an off-Broadway show called Sorcerer, the lead actress magically disappears. Soon after, she meets Max, a slowly-aging wizard whose mission is to protect the city from Evil. She also meets a sexy detective named Connor Lopez. Esther is pulled into a world of magic and stands up to fight against Evil. But Evil keeps showing up to all of her other jobs, too.

Why is it Squeeworthy?
This is one of the most hilarious series I've ever read. I'm talking laugh out loud moments. Esther and Mex's friendship is one of the best things ever, and her off and on relationship with Connor is fun to read. However, the best part is Esther chooses to go into these dangerous situations with no magical powers or artifacts of her own. I think that makes her a very strong protagonist.

Now, is it time for The Misfortune Cookie to come out yet?
