An awesome combination of Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Lord of the Rings, The Magicians is basically what would happen if the four girls from Googly Eyes gained magical powers. The result? Even with the world at our feet, we STILL can’t stop bitching. Filled with satisfying amounts of drugs, sex, and self-consciousness, these teen magicians brandish their wands with a snarky, “Suck it!”

Naivete-free, savvy, and able to answer the logistical questions that come with every new fantasy book, The Magicians totally rocked my (non-magical) world. I read its 400 pages in 24 hours. A motherfucking +.

Word Count: 99 WORDS BITCHES

    I couldn’t have said it better in 1000. Maybe you should watch Labyrinth again and stop the hate. The themes of holding onto and putting away childish things are not dissimilar. But this is still about a million miles closer to the twenty-something heart.
