The Forbidden Library by Django Wexler | Waiting on Wednesday

There are so many things I love about the premise of this book!

The Forbidden Library by Django Wexler
Publication Date: April 15, 2014

Book Description

When Alice’s father goes down in a shipwreck, she is sent to live with her uncle Geryon—an uncle she’s never heard of and knows nothing about. He lives in an enormous manor with a massive library that is off-limits to Alice. But then she meets a talking cat. And even for a rule-follower, when a talking cat sneaks you into a forbidden library and introduces you to an arrogant boy who dares you to open a book, it’s hard to resist. Especially if you’re a reader to begin with. Soon Alice finds herself INSIDE the book, and the only way out is to defeat the creature imprisoned within. It seems Geryon is more than he says he is. But then, so is Alice.

Right?! This book makes me giddy as a reader. It sounds like a wonderful middle grade read.
