#5 - Inkheart

I picked this book up a good while ago solely on the cover and an attraction to it. I had started to read it at the time but had put it down and forgot about it. The spell was too great though and drew me back in when I saw it sitting on the bookshelf. Originally written in German it is a good translation of a contemporary fantasy tale aimed at young adults. It is a bit darker than most YA books, but in a good way and while maybe not a perfect execution it is a good tale and does a great job of transporting the reader into the world. I found out it had been turned into a film and there are additional books in the series which I am looking forward to.
