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).

I just keep getting book mail! It is so nice. I am actually kind of glad I didn’t get my full order in one huge box. Because after a stressful day its nice to get to open a package you didn’t know was going to be there and have it be the books you were waiting on. 🙂 So today I got The Outlander series! I loved this series! I listen to it on audible last year(all 8books!) and I fell in love with Jamie and Claire. I am super excited to have physical copies as well as my audible copies.
They are mass market paperbacks which makes them very fat. But I actually like those better than the huge 8in books. I also got in 2 other books today…
The first volume of Dorothy Must Die Stories and another Fairyland novel. I think I am only waiting on 1 more dorothy book, the fourth one in the series and 1 more in the fairyland series. Then only Wicked Lovely, the first one in the series (which I alreay have). So, awesome! Only a couple more packages to come home to but I will be reading and reading all winter long! Link to Outlander will be below but I already have links to the other two in my Shop page so go check those out!
I love some books with pictures in them. This series I just flew through. I love fairies and monsters and other worlds. So this was right up my alley.
It focuses on Lucy and Soli, two best friends for as long as they can remember. They live in a little town next to Willow Forest. There are stories of another world in the forest and to never make a wish in the forest. Why? Because they faeries will grant it. This is a great story about friends growing up together and growing apart and back together again. Lucy makes a wish in the woods and is taken into the faerie land. And Soli has to find her inner strength to save her best friend.
As I said at the beginning this book does have pictures and lots of them. It makes the reading go by super quick. It is aimed more at a younger audience than Young Adult, maybe 5th grade level. But that is not a reason to not read it. The art is fantastic and the writing just pulls you right in.
There are 3 books in this series. I am pretty sure there are companion books to it but the story is told over the main trilogy.
