A PARAGRAPH THAT EXPLAINS...
If you follow my Instagram account,
there I speak of books I am reading and/or love.
If you don't have an Instagram account (IG)
look into it, it's another great resource for sharing.
So much in love with this book.
Love it so much that I went to Barnes and Noble and
bought the second book the day it came out, in hard cover,
at full price! Something I rarely do.
Having a B&N card saved me some, that made me happy.
I was surprised to realize these books are considered young teen
reading. Wish they had books like this when I was a teen.
This book is for all as it is fantastic!
I think one of the reasons I love this authors work is because
of the paragraph below.
The author (Ransom Riggs), like me had a hobby of searching
garage sales, thrift stores, antique places
for old photographs, He, also like me were infatuated with
the photos of children. Each time I find one, my mind
right away goes to a story the picture tells me.
I thought my mind was unique.
Turns out there are others like me out there.
He took his love one big step further, he wrote a book
surrounding those treasures.
Needless to say, there would be many things written
in this wonderful book that I can relate to, such as:
I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN.
IT WAS PART OF THIS PATHETIC CYCLE MY DAD
WAS CAUGHT IN. HE'D GET REALLY PASSIONATE
ABOUT SOME PROJECT, TALK ABOUT IT NONSTOP
FOR MONTHS. THEN, INEVITABLY, SOME
TINY PROBLEM WOULD CROP UP AND THROW
SAND IN THE GEARS, AND INSTEAD OF DEALING
WITH IT HE'D LET COMPLETELY OVERWHELM HIM.
THE NEXT THING YOU KNEW, THE PROJECT
WOULD BE OFF AND HE'D BE ON TO THE NEXT ONE,
AND THE CYCLE WOULD START AGAIN…
IT WAS THE REASON HE HAD A DOZEN UNFINISHED
This is me!
If you love to read, if you just like to read or
if you don't like to read at all, this is a series I bet would
have you reading regardless on where you stand on the
reading wheel. It is the "Harry Potter" of the year,
it has been picked up by Twentieth Century Fox
so a movie will be coming soon.
