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 the cost.


Thank you Fierce Reads for sending me a copy of The Book Jumper for review. This in no way affected my opinion.

First off this is one of my favorite covers so far for 2017. The book was about 50/50 for me in what I liked and did not like. I loved the writing when they were actually jumping into the stories and the entire concept of the lost manuscript that wove into what was happening.

I however, did not like the writing outside the world of book jumping. The mom and daughter relationship was too odd to be plausable. At first they seemed close and then when they got to the island it was like a different relationship. Now also the love interest seemed like they had no chemistry. It was like you are good looking and you are the only person attractive that is my age so we must like eachother.

Now that being said The Book Jumper was a fun whymsical read that made you want to be able to dive into the classics and live between the pages. I am giving The Book Jumper 2.5 Out of 5 Stars since this was a mix bag for me.

About the Author:

Mechthild Gläser was born in the summer of 1986 in Essen. Even today, she lives and works in the Ruhr area, where she devotes herself to her studies and now and then dances badly ballet - but only when no one is looking. She started writing early, and her laptop still stands on the pink desk-top shelf on which her first stories arose. She finds inspiration everywhere, but best with a cup of peppermint tea.
