Book Inspection: Enchanted Inc. by Shanna Swendson


Plot Sketch:
This is the story of small-town Texan, Katie Chandler, who moves to New York City. She works as an assistant to Mimi, the boss from hell, in a thankless job in the marketing industry. Sometimes she could swear that the gargoyles on that church move, so she takes different routes so that she can avoid the stupid things. She sees a couple women wearing wings over the course of a couple of commutes and figures it must be a new fashion trend. When will Katie learn to accept that people are just different in New York? The answer will come sooner than she thinks, when she is presented with a job offer too good to pass up at MSI, Inc. That's Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Incorporated.

Verdict:
I heart it. This book is first and foremost chick lit. It adds some elements of fantasy, but avoids typical fantasy book language. I would recommend to anyone who likes the idea of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Twilight, or even I Dream of Jeanie. The prose is easy to read and flows well. There are three more books out in the Katie Chandler series, and I am going to read them next. I'll let you know what I think.

Katie Chandler

Yes, I do.

3 days, but that included some vacation days where I didn't get much reading in, it was an easy read.

Did I Heart Monster get stuck at any points in the book? If so, why?
Nope.

Is this a good read for Monster?
Nope - I would not recommend it for straight men.

What, if anything, would I Heart Monster change to make the book more interesting?
If I got to change one thing, it would be that I could change some of the romance storyline, but other than that, it was good.
