I picked this book up just because it was called the reader to be 100% honest. I was thinking it was going to be about a girl who loves to read and get lost in all of these stories. I don’t know. I was COMPLETELY wrong! Lol. (picture was found on Google.)
THE LAST BOOK IN THE SERIES COMES OUT TOMORROW! 11/13/18! I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀
This book takes place in Kelanna (and it has a map! 😀 ) In a world where there are no books, no one knows history except the stories that are passed down by word of mouth. Sefia has been entrusted her entire life, since her parents died, to keep a book safe. She doesn’t know what it is or where it came from; all she knows is that it can never leave her sight and she can never let it be taken from her. Sefia is traveling with Nin, an old lady her parents knew. For 6 years they have been kept out of sight, for 6 years they have been safe.
One reason I love this book is how much there is to it! I thought I had gotten a damaged copy because there were ink marks on pages but when it kept happening I knew that was just part of the book. Plus you have to keep your eye on the page count! I know, that usually is a bad thing but there are words next to some of the numbers! So awesome!
I took this book with me to Arizona for a job interview and it got damaged in my luggage! So sad. Not too badly, but a shampoo bottle exploded and I was lucky I had brought back up clothes. I do want to get a hardback of this because I have hardbacks of the next two (well, this will be up a day before the final book is out).
