What a fun read this was! This book was a quick, easy to read novel that some are categorizing as romance but that I would say is more about the relationship between the two sisters and then a romantic story. While there was a love interest, in the end what I will remember most about this book is Charlotte and Ginny and the love they have for each other.
What initially caught my eye about this book was the synopsis I read a few months ago that talked about the main character Charlotte, a librarian, and her love of books and the fictional world. It sounded like a book that I would enjoy and I am happy to report that I was. Not only is Charlotte a librarian, but the book is riddled with Harry Potter references (among the other numerous literary quotes). Basically, I identified with Charlotte a lot and enjoyed reading about the shenanigans she gets herself into.
Charlotte and Ginny are twin sisters but couldn’t be more different. While Ginny has spent her life following in their mother’s footsteps and competing in beauty pageants, Charlotte is content to love her life immersed in books. There is not much animosity between them but they have found themselves drifting apart as they have gotten older and found dissimilar interests. When Ginny has an allergic reaction the day before the preliminaries of her last-chance pageant, she convinces Charlotte to compete as her until the finals when Ginny will hopefully be better. Hilarity ensues, secrets are revealed, and Charlotte finds herself falling for one of the judges, a man that is so perfect he can only exist in the pages of a novel.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun read that lets them escape for a few hours into a world where dogs dress like wizards, sisters are best friends, and a librarian is the heroine.
