Evil Librarian by Michelle Knudsen

Evil Librarian
Blurb (from Goodreads):
#EvilLibrarian He’s young. He’s hot. He’s also evil. He’s . . . the librarian.

When Cynthia Rothschild’s best friend, Annie, falls head over heels for the new high-school librarian, Cyn can totally see why. He’s really young and super cute and thinks Annie would make an excellent library monitor. But after meeting Mr. Gabriel, Cyn realizes something isn’t quite right. Maybe it’s the creepy look in the librarian’s eyes, or the weird feeling Cyn gets whenever she’s around him. Before long Cyn realizes that Mr. Gabriel is, in fact . . . a demon. Now, in addition to saving the school musical from technical disaster and trying not to make a fool of herself with her own hopeless crush, Cyn has to save her best friend from the clutches of the evil librarian, who also seems to be slowly sucking the life force out of the entire student body! From best-selling author Michelle Knudsen, here is the perfect novel for teens who like their horror served up with a bit of romance, plenty of humor, and some pretty hot guys (of both the good and evil variety).

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Evil Librarian(Source: I borrowed a copy of this book.)
This was an okay story about a girl battling a demon in human form in an effort to save her best friend.

Cynthia was an okay character, although she did sometimes speak without thinking. Obviously people were going to think that she was nuts when she started talking about the school librarian being a demon, and obviously the demon wasn’t going to like that information getting out.

The storyline in this was okay, and there were a couple of interesting plot points. As expected Cynthia was immune to the demon’s influence, but I found it amusing that rather than this having some awesome name, she got called a super-roach! I did find the pace a little slow, and wanted things to move a little quicker throughout this story, and it did feel like it dragged a bit.

There was some romance, and it was a little weird between Cynthia’s best friend Annie and the Demon! Cynthia finally getting to talk to the boy she liked was pretty good though.

The ending was alright, and we did get a bit of action. This book was okay for me overall, but I think it would probably appeal more to younger YA readers.
6.25 out of 10
