Alcatraz Versus the Scrivener’s Bones

Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians #2

by Brandon Sanderson

Rating: 4 out of 5.


Alcatraz and his new friends and family members that he didn’t know that he had, have set out on another adventure. This time, they are seeking Alcatraz father. Wait, I though Alcatraz was an orphan. Well, so did he – that is until he learned that his mother was the one that was looking after him his whole life and following him from foster home to foster home. But, now he learns that his father may not be dead either.

This time, the teams’ adventure takes them to the Library of Alexandria – one of the most dangerous libraries in the entire world, where picking up a single book will cost you your soul.

Also, I’m sorry to say it, but Bastille dies at the end. 😉

My Thoughts

So, it’s been a minute since I wrote Enter Witty Title Here About Librarians Trying to Take Over the World. There are just so many good books to read! I know it’s been a while since I read Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians to the kids, but I finally got around to listening to book 2, Alcatraz versus the Scrivener’s Bones. Brandon Sanderson has done it again! This is a hilarious read for young people and adults alike. Definitely a must read for young readers.

If you haven’t read my post, Enter Witty Title Here About Librarians Trying to Take Over the World, you should. It’s a much better blog post than this one.

Can you believe it’s May already?!

You may have seen a notification from me elsewhere explaining that I’ll soon be focusing (nearly) exclusively on my Substack content. I am truly grateful to everyone who has been following my journey here on WordPress over the past couple of years. I would be honored if you would head over to davidsheley.substack.com and subscribe to my newsletter. Initially, it will be the same content as you see here, but as I make the transition, I will allow my WordPress site to fade into the background as my Substack publications come online. If you’d like to know more about what this Substack stuff is all about, drop me a comment, and I’d be happy to tell you more.

The Nutcracker Trilogy

I will continue to shamelessly promote these books because I’m so excited about being a small part of Drosselmeyer’s journey. If you’re new here, let me encourage you to check out The Nutcracker Trilogy by Paul Thompson. All three books are available in print and as e-books. Books one and two are available as audiobooks, narrated by yours truly. Click the links below to explore.

Oh, and it doesn’t have to be Christmas for you to enjoy these stories (just like it doesn’t have to be Christmas to enjoy Harry Potter).
