I know I am not the only person who’s interest is piqued when a synopsis mentions something about books, a library, or writers. So I figured I would gather all the books I have read (at least the 15 that I can think of) that involve any of those elements (not just in a passing mention) and some upcoming anticipated 2018 releases mentioning said elements. Please keep in mind that some of these I wouldn’t recommend, but listed them anyway. In alphabetical order and each book has a link to either my review or to their corresponding GR page.
