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 saw this on my twitter timeline long ago but I forgot about it. Yesterday, I saw it again on bloggers' Top Ten Tuesday lists. So... I immediately added it to my TBR. The cover and blurb are so convincing.

Really... "Amy is a book jumper, able to leap into a story and interact with the world inside."
  • the protagonist can go to the world that's inside the book
  • she can also interact with the characters
  • we have moments where we want to escape reality and that's why for us, we read books, now imagine actually living IN IT.
  • that's like...every avid reader's dream...
