Inkheart | Cornelia Caroline Funke
Twelve-year-old Meggie learns that her father Mo, a bookbinder, can "read" fictional characters to life when an evil ruler named Capricorn, freed from the novel "Inkheart" years earlier, tries to force Mo to release an immortal monster from the story.

I had forgotten most of this upon reading it again after many years. I felt like it could have been a bit shorter, but it‘s a unique story with good characters. A book for book lovers.

I was hoping to like this book more than I did…
Characters were a bit cardboard-like. There were a fair amount of parts where action happens “off screen” and we‘re told about it after the fact. The book could have been cut in half and still be a comprehensible story, and I actually PREFER long books. The lack of responsible, critical thinking from any adult character was headache inducing. Might continue the series, but not anytime soon.

Ruthiella I also only read this as an adult and didn‘t love it. I wonder if I‘d have felt differently if I‘d read it when a child. 🤔 1mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @Ruthiella I don‘t think I would have been very impressed with it then either, honestly. 😅 I can think of plenty of books meant for younger readers that I‘ve only read as an adult and still enjoyed and knew that my younger self would have loved as well. I think younger me would have lost interest in this early on and probably not even have finished… 1mo
PuddleJumper I've always wondered about this series since I enjoyed the film 1mo

Why are we not contacting the police?!? I don‘t care if they‘re fictional characters from a book, they live in our world now and fucking kidnapped people!! Mo and company can prove they were kidnapped, there‘s probable cause littered all over the village!!!
I…I just…
WHY ARE WE NOT CALLING THE AUTHORITIES?!?!?!?!

Fantasy fans will be PSYCHED to see an Inkheart episode of my book podcast, but here‘s the thing — as I learned reading this book for the first time, it‘s a story for *all* book lovers! I like to think this episode is for all book lovers, too. Debut author Akshaya Raman is my guest, and we had the best time talking about world building, the reader/author relationship, and more. 📖 Link to listen in my bio!

📚 Bilbo Baggins! We'd cook and enjoy all the yummy food from his many pantries 😂

📚 Hmm.. try something new that you've always wanted to, but have put off. I did that with watercolor painting and drawing, and it helped me so much!

📚 Hard to choose a favorite... I think I'd have to go with Inkheart by Cornelia Funke!

So it's happened, I kept thinking, you're in the middle of a story exactly as you've always wanted, and it's horrible. Fear tastes quite different when you're not just reading about it, Meggie, and playing hero wasn't half as much fun as I'd expected.

1. For book, it's Inkheart. For movie, it's You've Got Mail. I love both of them to pieces.

2. The Thursday Murder Club by Osman would make a terrific movie, if they get the right cast.

‘Word of honour – no crossed fingers?‘ Meggie looked him straight in the eye. She could always tell when Mo was lying, however hard he tried to hide it from her.

Stacks of books were piled high all over the house – not just arranged in neat rows on bookshelves, the way other people kept them, oh no! The books in Mo and Meggie‘s house were stacked under tables, on chairs, in the corners of the rooms. There were books in the kitchen and books in the lavatory. Books on the TV set and in the wardrobe, small piles of books, tall piles of books, books thick and thin, books old and new.

Prompt: Rise of the Guardians

BookingitwithSandra I love this series. I don‘t think the movie did it justice. Imagination in ones head is better than someone else‘s imaginative view, don‘t you think? 13mo
TheSpineView @Lifeisasnap Totally agree! 13mo
LibrarianRyan I loved this book, and liked the movie. I liked that the movie shortened some of the dry spells, and Branden Frasier did a great job. But then again Funke always said she pictured Branden when she was writing and would not let them make the movie without him. 13mo

Just finished These Broken Stars, absolutely loved it! It took a surprising twist at the end. Now to wait for the next novel in the mail, I‘m going to be rereading my favorite childhood book! I absolutely adore this book, even now as an adult. What was your favorite novel as a child?

“Every book should begin with attractive endpapers,” he had once told Meggie. “Preferably in a dark color: dark red or dark blue, depending on the binding. When you open the book it‘s like going to the theater. First you see the curtain. Then it‘s pulled aside and the show begins.”

--#Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Maybe I'll spend some time tomorrow checking out "curtains" of my books. From memory I know #TheHazelWood has beautiful end papers ?

“If you take a book with you on a journey an odd thing happens: The book begins collecting your memories. And forever after you have only to open that book to be back where you first read it..the sights you saw in that place, what it smelled like, the ice cream you ate while you were reading it... yes, books are like flypaper; memories cling to the printed page better than anything else.”

I loved the concept for this novel and got more than halfway through before getting bored with it. To be fair, it is a middle-grade novel, so I am probably not the right audience. So, that‘s it for my reading this year. Happy New Year everyone!
