Inkspell | Cornelia Funke
The captivating sequel to INKHEART, the critically acclaimed, international bestseller by Cornelia Funke--available for the first time in a beautifully designed trade paperback! Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of INKHEART, the book whose characters became real. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval world of his past. Distraught, Farid goes in search of Meggie, and before long, both are caught inside the book, too. But the story is threatening to evolve in ways neither of them could ever have imagined.

I'd almost forgotten that I'd found the first one slow at times & just remembered that it eventually became really charming. This was similar. Some parts dragged forever, but still I wanted to know what would happen next. I still enjoyed Dustfinger, Mo, & Elinor, but found Farid & Fenoglio absolutely impossible at times. They never thought about consequences of their actions! But I continue to love the idea of a book about loving books & words.

Week 3 Check-in: I'm doing this late b/c I was finishing the tagged book tonight. Thanks to a lot of dancing to BSB last night, I'm at 180 min. of activity - a full hour extra! I've read 4/8 books so I'm right on track for the halfway point. For the optional challenge, I'm including Anne of Green Gables, which isn't specifically a motivational text, but I realized this year that I find it really inspirational in its messages of hope & love.

1/5⭐ Slooooow. The narration was very much: "Something minor happens, like a butterfly flying past...or did it?" *long philosophical inner character thoughts & entire background explanations for their current emotions* I don't think there was any consistency in how the book/real world connection works. I didn't care for Brendan Fraser's audio narration. His speed varied greatly, making it difficult to understand, and he emphasized words strangely.

Finally got round to finish it. It‘s a really good book with a very good sense of character development. Many frustrating characters like Orpheus and Feneglio but the Black Prince and Dustfinger make up for their arrogance. I‘m excited to start reading the next one!

As you can see by the Sunshine sticker on the front cover, this was my most read novel as a young reader. After doing my book boost about this F novel, I decided to read it again, and WOW. I forgot captivated I get into this book, and I also picked up on hundreds of new details. Using my teacher hat, imagining using this book as an IR or a LC in my classroom would be amazing! I also did some research this time around while reading.

kennedimartin https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/activities/teaching-content/inkheart-flashli... would be a great resource to use in the classroom for pre and post comprehension questions. Using ESOL 36, teachers can spark their students imaginations and comprehension. Using UDL principles 2.1 and 2.2 can help any student comprehend the text better and get a deeper understanding for the plot. #lae3414sp19 7mo
alexandracarpenter I loved these books when I was in elementary school! The ESOL strategy you chose would work really well with these books and I think that any classroom would benefit from having this series. 7mo
audrey.wilson I had never heard of these books until your book boost! They sound amazing and truly captivating, can‘t wait to ready them. 7mo

So far, it‘s really good. A really interesting story to read a book in a book! Can definitely see the character development from the original characters, just hoping that the plot doesn‘t get too lost.

Had to put it on stand by for now as I‘m reading a book for a book club but will get back to it when I can

I had a really hard time getting through this book, and I had a hard time putting my finger on why... one thing that was weird to me: it seemed the author wanted us to judge Fenoglio for writing such evil villains and dark plots... but... Funke was the one writing them. It was all very meta to me, and it made me focus more on being unhappy about villains and plots and less on enjoying the story. It felt a bit clumsy to me.

I started the first book in this series (Tintenherz/Inkheart) more than ten years ago but for some reason I bailed on it. Just after Christmas I finally picked it up again and I'm now on book two. Even though the story did not (yet) manage to captivate me quite as much as I hoped it would, I'm really glad I gave it a second chance because it is so imaginative and beautifully written.

This book was quite a lot slower than Inkheart, so it took me a lot longer to get through it. The plot was again really strong, and I loved the World of Ink, but I felt it lacked a lot of character development.

This is a recent acquisition that is #blue - the snake on the cover, in particular. I found it at Recycled Reads during one of my monthly visits. I need the other two in the series so I can give them to my friend for her kids. I was excited by its great condition! #30daysofreadathon

LibrarianRyan I LOVED inkheart. I really need to read the rest of the series. 2y
jpmcwisemorgan @LibrarianRyan I didn‘t read Inkdeath, I think. I used to have copies of at least the first two but if I still have them they‘re in storage. 2y
LibrarianRyan @jpmcwisemorgan I think I left my copy of Inkheart in the teacher set I created. It had everything written and highlighted so that the page numbers in the booklet made sense to the next person to use the set. 2y
BarbaraJean I loved Inkheart, but got so frustrated with the other two! She throws in a whole new unnecessary complication at the end of this one that felt like it was only there so she could make it a trilogy. I guess it didn't stop me from reading the third one, though... 😏 2y
jpmcwisemorgan @BarbaraJean I kind of think that‘s why I didn‘t finish the series. It‘s been a long time so maybe I‘ll revisit. 2y

Here's a great place to #getindie that's closest to my home (a 15 minute drive —sadly no bookstore in my town), the Books Inc in Burlingame, CA. They have a terrific kids corner where I used to clock many hours reading aloud to my wee ones - now they're equally interested in their selection of socks! The staff's great here and the manager is a lovely guy who is also a parent at our school! #sfbayarea @Litsy
