Rules and Regulations for Mediating Myths & Magic
Rules and Regulations for Mediating Myths & Magic | F T Lukens
13 posts | 7 read | 6 to read
Desperate to pay for college, Bridger Whitt is willing to overlook the peculiarities of his new job--entering via the roof, the weird stacks of old books and even older scrolls, the seemingly incorporeal voices he hears from time to time--but it's pretty hard to ignore being pulled under Lake Michigan by... mermaids? Worse yet, this happens in front of his new crush, Leo, the dreamy football star who just moved to town.Fantastic.When he discovers his eccentric employer Pavel Chudinov is an intermediary between the human world and its myths, Bridger is plunged into a world of pixies, werewolves, and Sasquatch. The realm of myths and magic is growing increasingly unstable, and it is up to Bridger to ascertain the cause of the chaos, eliminate the problem, and help his boss keep the real world from finding the world of myths.

Dewey‘s 24-hour readathon wrap-up! Def not my most productive readathon, but I still had a great relaxing day and was glad to make some reading progress. I started & finished the tagged book; finished an eARC that I was almost done with; and read about 1/3 of each of the bottom 2 books. Considering I hadn‘t read basically anything this month before Dewey‘s, I‘m pretty happy! #readathon

(I‘m not actually at the beach, this is an old photo 😂) but this was a cute/funny contemporary fantasy about Bridger navigating school and whether he‘s ready to come out as bisexual when two earth-shattering things happen: a cute boy moves into town and he gets a job assisting an intermediary between our world and the world of myth. Many supernatural and adorable shenanigans ensue. Great for fans of urban fantasy and/or rom-coms. #readathon

“...Bridger would be perfectly happy in Michigan if he wouldn‘t have to explain himself to everyone for the rest of his life.”

Aw, kid, I totally feel you on this one. 😢

What a delightful romp through the crazy wonderful life of high school senior Bridger Whitt. Man does he have a lot going on from a new job, which requires he enter via the roof of the building and that he ignore the strange voices he hears, to a growing fascination with & crush on his new next door neighbor Leo who just happens to be a star football player. Myth & the human world collide in strange and unexpected ways in this fun & funny YA read.

Have you seen this cover? How can you see this cover and not want to read this book?!? Seriously, I need to know what‘s happening here. Right? A UNICORN IS CHASING A DUDE!!! ACROSS THE COVER OF THIS BOOK!!! So, yeah, this book isn‘t just at the top of my TBR pile, it‘s my next read. ❤️🦄📚🦄❤️

This gets 2/5 stars for decent bisexual boy representation (although I was a bit puzzled by the complete lack of bi/homophobia, especially in the context of a high school football team in Michigan??), but tbh the rest is kinda bad: flat characters, mediocre and annoying writing, uninspired use of fantasy tropes, predictable and boring plot. Some teens will probably really like this, but it was a chore for me to get through. #BisexualBooks

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian Read this instead for an awesome fantasy YA about a bisexual boy! 2y

This is my new book to rave about to people. It's a small publisher but oh so good. It's funny, a little unexpected and plays with the tropes you love. I love all the characters and can't wait to get a hold of her other books! Please go take a look. It's SO much fun!!

Also Litsy doesn't like this title for some reason. It didn't want to come up and won't show the whole cover. :/
