Mary E. Twomey’s latest novel, Jack and Yani Love Harry Potter, is a playful and carefree romp through some of genre fiction’s most famous fandoms. Whether you are a fan of Harry Potter or would rather go for the sparkly vampires of Twilight, there is something to entertain you in this fun book. Jack and Yani have been friends for years, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have their differences. While both love to read, Jack, a more classically trained literature reader, simply can’t understand Yani’s obsession with the supernatural and teen angst that abounds in her choice of reading material. Even their taste in candy is hard to agree upon, though they are coauthors of a candy bar review blog. But one thing they do have in common, though they never would have guessed it, each of them loves the other, but neither has been able to admit it. When Yani turns thirty, she realizes that she has so much in her life that she desires to do before another decade passes, so she goes on a road trip to visit the places that she has read so much about. With the sudden disappearance of Yani, Jack realizes that he might just lose her forever, so he embarks on a excursion with his friends to track Yani down and declare his love for her once and for all. Will Jack catch up to her in time, or will this epic journey help Yani move on and find love in the arms of another?

Jack and Yani Love Harry Potter was a light and enjoyable read that tantalized all of my guilty pleasures. Vampires, wizards, werewolves, and chocolate, what more could a geeky girl ask for? The added dash of the possibly cliched but heartwarming and comforting romance between best friends makes this a delightful read that is hard to put down. This book had all the joys of a rom-com, road trip, and parody movie all rolled into one. As a literary nerd myself, I found this book to be a wonderful celebration of all the things I love. If you have ever dreamed of going to Hogwarts, picked a side in the ongoing Team Jacob/Team Edward debate, or have simply ever wished to find a love like in the movies, then Jack and Yani Love Harry Potter is a must-have book for you.
