    The Magicians trilogy by Lev Grossman. A review on amazon.com said it best: “Magic – which despite making almost anything possible – doesn’t simplify the complexity of adulthood. This is a book about grown-up fantasy nerds for grown- up fantasy nerds, but it’s also a page turner with some serious literary ambition.” It contains heavy doses of Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter. Recommend it to adults who appreciate fantasy.

    AWESOME book by Lev Grossman. / Quentin Coldwater is brillant but miserable. He's a senior in high school, and a certifiable genius, but he's still secretly obsessed with a series of fantasy novels he read as a kid, about the adventures of five children in a magical land called Fillory. Compared to that, anything in his real life just seems gray and colorless.

    FAVORITE FANTASY! The Magicians / Lev Grossman ~ Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. A senior in high school, he’s still secretly preoccupied with a series of fantasy novels he read as a child, set in a magical land called Fillory. Imagine his surprise when he finds himself unexpectedly admitted to a very secret, very exclusive college of magic in upstate New York, where he receives a thorough and rigorous education in the craft of modern sorcery.
