Dusty Reads is a meme hosted by Giselle from Expresso Reads, featuring a book which has been staying at my bookpile for the longest.
I have so many books left dusty at my piles, for this week I share this :
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
Blurb from Goodreads :
Twelve-year-old Meggie learns that her father, who repairs and binds books for a living, can "read" fictional characters to life when one of those characters abducts them and tries to force him into service.
Characters from books literally leap off the page in this engrossing fantasy. Meggie has had her father to herself since her mother went away when she was young. Mo taught her to read when she was five, and the two share a mutual love of books. He can "read" characters out of books. When she was three, he read aloud from a book called Inkheart and released characters into the real world. At the same time, Meggie's mother disappeared into the story. This "story within a story" will delight not just fantasy fans, but all readers who like an exciting plot with larger-than-life characters
I already read 2 chapters of Inkheart but then for some reason I stopped and put it back to my shelf. It's not because it's bad, I watched the movie first I liked the storyline. But heung...dunno. Maybe because I was more tempeted to read another book.
Definitely have to read this soon =p
