Hello Everyone!

When I decided to read this book, I was pretty apathetic, if I’m being honest I thought it would be a little boring. I can tell you I was super wrong Almost immediately after picking it up, I was hooked. I know this series is already fairly popular, but I still want to share how amazing it is in case you haven’t experienced it’s amazingness.

Summary: Meggie Folchart loves two things, books and her Father, Mo. They live in a big farm house in the European countryside and travel around repairing books, just the two of them. One night, Meggie wakes up and sees a stranger watching their house in the rain. In just a few short hours, Meggie learns her father has a unique ability, whenever he reads aloud, characters from the book come into the real world. This man, Dustfinger is from the book Inkheart, he has been trapped in the real world for ten years, the same amount of time Meggie’s mother has been mysteriously missing. Worse than that, the terrible villain Capricorn is also roaming the real world and has set up a fortress teeming with henchmen and foul dealings. Mo and Meggie find themselves trapped in world where the line between reality and fantasy is becoming all too blurry.

Review: This book is a book for readers. Meggie, Mo, her aunt Elinor, they are all bibliophiles and the way the author paints loving books is beautiful. The whole concept of the series is the fictional world coming to life, and I definitely felt totally immersed in the beautiful, unique and imaginative world the story painted. This book is a page turner, I would sit down and read for what felt like only a short while and discover I had read a huge chunk of the book. I just really really loved these books. The characters were amazing, the storytelling completely immersive. The best way to describe these books are beautiful, from the writing to gorgeous covers, these books blew me away.
