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 Housebut 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 theftsat whatever cost.

All the book stacks after getting back from vacation. My parents sent me home with a few old favourites, I scored big at a library sale, and I came home to a lovely amount of #bookmail
@OriginalCyn620 I‘ll get started on our #LMPBC book soon.
Thank you everyone that sent me #LitsyLove in the last week, I‘ll be working on replies in a couple days.

Probably written for younger audiences than myself, but I can‘t pass up a good book about books (I feel like I‘ve mentioned this obsession before). It was so creative, and I found myself guessing which books all the characters were from. Look out, #LMPBC group C— this is coming atcha!

One of my very few DNFs this year. I stalled half way through, and just could not motivate myself to want to know how it ended. I still think the book jacket design is one of the most exquisite I‘ve ever seen.

Entertaining and a fast read. Amy & her mother leave their home and their troubles in Germany, and travel to Amy‘s ancestral home, of which she knows nothing. She learns that she has the ability to jump into books and discovers the literary world in chaos. She and her new friend Will work together with book characters to try to save the books they‘ve sworn to protect. Such an intriguing concept, and a page turner. Continued ⬇️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Elizabeth2 The ending leaves the reader with questions though. I‘m not sure if the author is planning on a sequel, but the reader is left wondering about the fate of several characters. This makes the story seem a bit unfinished and left me a bit unsatisfied. 7mo

Elizabeth2 @Jee_HookedOnBookz This book cover is gorgeous! My husband picked up the mug at HomeGoods for around $12. In the event it‘s sold other places, this is the info from the bottom: “Rae Dunn, Artisan Collection by Magenta.” 7mo

Finally sitting down today, after hosting Easter Dinner for 17. Loved spending the day with family, whom I am lucky enough to also call friends. ❤️ Clean up is finished, and I‘m going to enjoy one more glass of wine and my book before I crash. This book is good so far...I‘m not very far into it. Such an intriguing concept. If I could have a superpower... 😉📚

Starting this tonight. Meeting with my book club Monday evening, and we are supposed to have the first 6 chapters (121 pages) read. I haven‘t had a chance to start it. Work has been so busy (I had to work today and will tomorrow too), and we are hosting Easter dinner for 19 so my weekend is booked. 😳 I always meet the goal for book club. I am not going to miss this one. It will all get done somehow! 🤨👍🏻📚

I love the first half of this book. I thought it was creative and I was interested in the story. The last part of the book became unorganized and just weird. I wanted to love the book, and I love the idea if story about a family who has the ability to jump into books and meet some favorite fictional characters. The story just was not executed well.

Trying to knock out some titles that have been in the TBR for a while. I feel like I would have loved this one when I was a teen a la The Great Good Thing or even Inkheart (though those are some big shoes) But it didn‘t have everything figured out and the voice felt like an earlier YA than the content did.

2.5/5⭐. Loved: concept, book characters interacting w/ each other, visual descriptions of jumping pages/margins, gorgeous cover, narrator's accents. Disliked: Swiss cheese worldbuilding (rules of book world balance w/ life in margins unclear), background presence of character w/ intellectual disability who existed only to provide "mysterious"/timely clues, inconsistent pace, dragging climax, narrator's constant annoying dreamlike lilt. #projectnew

In The Book Jumper, Amy and her mom visit family in Scotland and she discovers that she is a book jumper—she can enter stories, but she can‘t intervene and she must vow to protect the world of literature. I loved The Forgotten Book by the same author, and this one is somewhere between a pick and so-so. #womenintranslation

This book was AMAZING until the last 100 pages. Honestly, I could have used an extra 100 pages for a little backstory and further character development. All in all an entertaining read, but could have been so much more.

I‘ve been reading The Book Jumper since I finished work yesterday. It hasn‘t received very good reviews on Litsy, but I think it is super entertaining. I‘m at the halfway mark, give or take, and I‘m anxious to see how it turns out. Unfortunately, I have to get ready for a meeting, so the end will have to wait.

A bit disappointing. I loved the premise of this book, but unfortunately it ended up falling flat. It wasn‘t bad, but it felt like the all the elements of the plot were kind of half-assed. The cover is really beautiful though and even though I was just looking to read fluff, I was hoping for better fluff. Ah well! Two 1/2 stars.

PatriciaU I felt the same way. There was so much potential, but it just fell flat. 1y
GypsyKat @PatriciaU I‘m glad it wasn‘t just me. It‘s such a pretty book, too! Deckled edges, great cover... such a shame. 1y

I had high hopes for this (partly because of the gorgeous cover, partly because what reader doesn't want to enter their favorite books?!) but was rather disappointed. The early world-building needed to explain the why of book jumpers a little more, and the ending was a bit sad for me. The middle was definitely the strongest part of it.
