A new (and hot) librarian comes to school, Cynthia’s best friend develops a crush. Then Cyn realizes he’s a demon.
How is she going to defeat the demon, talk to the boy she’s crushing on, and finish the set pieces for the school’s production of Sweeny Todd?
Why is this on our bookshelf?
There isn’t much of the paranormal on our bookshelves, and perhaps it’s about time.
To be honest, the title of made me laugh and being the month of October, a fluff read like Evil Librarian was a perfect choice for the 24-hour Readathon
Rating (2 stars)
Picture a campy Supernatural episode combined with a YA teenage romance. That’s the basic plot of Evil Librarian.
Unfortunately, there just isn’t that much substance to Evil Librarian and the teenage characters seem awfully stereotyped. I mean, a demon is about to take over the school and kill people and Cyn is worried about whether her boy crush thinks she’s a dork or if she can come up with an awesome idea for the school play?
This is definitely geared toward a younger audience, but it does have some fun bits and it gets brownie points from me for the references to famous stage musicals.
If you’re looking for some lighthearted fun and don’t mind overblown stereotypical teen angst, it’s a fast read, so why not. I just didn’t think it had much to redeem it.

Read something intellectual to counteract the innane fictional adolescent fluff.
