Waiting on Thursday: The Book Jumper

I'm changing things up a bit this week since my scheduled reviews are part of tours and just happen to be on my normal off-review days. You guys know how much I love the Waiting on Wednesday meme, so I didn't want to miss it!


THE BOOK JUMPER
Mechthild Glaser
Young Adult/Fantasy
Releases January 2017 from Feiwel & Friends

From Goodreads:

Amy Lennox doesn't know quite what to expect when she and her mother pick up and leave Germany for Scotland, heading to her mother's childhood home of Lennox House on the island of Stormsay.

Amy's grandmother, Lady Mairead, insists that Amy must read while she resides at Lennox House—but not in the usual way. It turns out that Amy is a book jumper, able to leap into a story and interact with the world inside. As thrilling as Amy's new power is, it also brings danger: someone is stealing from the books she visits, and that person may be after her life. Teaming up with fellow book jumper Will, Amy vows to get to the bottom of the thefts—at whatever cost.

I don't think there's an avid reader out there whose greatest fantasy isn't to be able to literally jump into the world of their favorite books (OH HI BONES AND BARRONS! AND CURRAN!), so there's no way this book wouldn't be on my must-have list. Also, Scotland. Anything set in Scotland or Ireland just makes me happy, so I'm looking forward to living vicariously through Amy as she journeys to Scotland and jumps her way from one piece of fiction to the next.

  1. You had me at Curran... mmmmmm... Anyway, I'd likely be the one stealing from ALL the books, which I suppose makes me a villain. Mostly I'd steal characters, so I guess I'm a kidnapper too. I can live with that.
