Furthermore | Tahereh Mafi
Colour and magic combine in this enchanting new middle grade fantasy from the bestselling author of the Shatter Me series. Born as blank as canvas in a world brimming with colour and magic, Alice's pale skin and milk-white hair mark her as an outcast. Because, for the people of Ferenwood, colour and magic are one and the same. And since the disappearance of her beloved father, Alice is more determined than ever to prove herself and her own magical abilities. To do so she'll have to travel into the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, with the help of a fiercely annoying boy named Oliver. But nothing in Furthermore is as it seems, and it will take all of Alice's wits to find her father and return him safely home.

My friends and Ihave argued if this is really a cover change. I say yes. The only similar thing is the font used for the authors name.

I‘m giving this a Pick because I think I would have loved it at a kid. It was really quirky and fun, but a little too much so for adult me. I‘m definitely going to be adding it to the list of books I push at school.
Despite the paper copy in the picture, this was 100% and #audiobook read for me and I liked the narrator. #audiocrochet

Last week was a wash with all the rain and snow so I only got 1 audiobook finished towards my goal. Today we got a break so we took advantage and went to walk the beach and found some geocaches along the way. I got chased by an eagle so I even got some running in 😂😂
Movies, jammies and laziness for the rest of the night!

I love Mafi‘s writing in general, so I was excited about this one. It was middle grade, which is not always a favorite of mine, and sort of a fairy tale. Overall I felt it delivered almost exactly what I expected.

Read this with my 12yo, and it was a delight. The main character isn‘t your typical middle grade good little girl. We loved her more for all her faults, and the story was pretty original. This was my first time to listen to Bronson Pinchot narrate. I know he‘s thought of highly, and his normal voice is nice, but when the female character spoke he was so soft and whispery it was hard to hear. 👍🏻 book 👎🏻 narration

This pretty much sums up everything on my TBR/Netflix queue/DVR. I‘m convinced that I‘ll love all of it, even if I never actually get to it. This book reminded me of a mashup of “Alice‘s Adventures in Wonderland”, “The Phantom Tollbooth”, and “Haroun and the Sea of Stories”. I almost burst into tears at the end when the meaning of the card she received at the Surrender was revealed. I‘m hoping to get to book 2 in the series sometime this month.

I love the way Tahereh Mafi uses the words and makes everything she writes sound as if you read a poem instead of prose. I knew what to expect as I read Witchwood before Furthemore but still enjoyed it thoroughly. The way the characters develop is beautiful to follow. I hope that there will be another book in this series in the future!

In a magical and whimsical world where everyone and everything is steeped in vivid colours and #magic , one 12-yr old ‘colourless‘ girl stands out. She goes on a fairy tale-like adventure in search of her missing father, and with her bravery and wit, she does not back down till her quest succeeds.

“Unsocked feet,” “a single pair of days away,” “catching deep breaths and holding them, too selfish to let them go” — what an absolutely striking way Mafi has with words. I‘m loving this already and I‘m just a few minutes in.

@JenP words cannot express how perfect the #cupidgoespostalkids package is that you and your little Litten put together. My daughter stayed up until midnight to open this (while I was fast asleep) and said she actually squealed when she unwrapped it all. Everything is a perfect reflection of the things she loves most. That personalized water bottle!! And she has a Pez collection! And she‘s not read any of those books. All if it-thank you! 💕💕

3.5 ⭐️

I‘ve loved this author before, so I was really looking forward to this book. I liked the story itself, the plot and the world that Alice and Oliver live in. What made it difficult for me to rate it any higher was that the beginning was too long of a backstory to be able to get into, and the ending was quick and left me wanting more. If they switched the lengths, I would have liked it much more. Interested to see how the 2nd book plays out.

Such a beautifully told story. So excited for the sequel.

When twelve year old Alice's father goes missing her family is at a loss. Life is hard as a colorless girl in Furthermore - a world full of color. Insert the quirky Oliver and an adventure to find her father awaits. I loved this middle grade novel. It reads quickly, builds multiple fascinating and unique worlds, and made me laugh and tear up a little.

This book was precious. This is a middle grade book written by the author of the Shatter Me series and it is just so whimsical. I love her writing because it‘s magical in itself, very flowery and full of prose and humour. I can‘t wait to share this with my niece because I know she would love to read something very “Alice In Wonderland”-esque. It has that silliness to it that made my heart feel light.

I didn‘t love Bronson Pinchot‘s narration, as he made the characters voices slow, sleepy and tremulous. I‘m sure I would have given Alice a louder and sassier voice in my head, had I read this in print.
