“Rain fell that night, a fine, whispering rain.”
This is going to be a First Line Friday post hosted by Hoarding Books!
I think that the first line of this book really sets the mood for everything that’s about to happen. This was a series that I grew up reading, and when I saw that they were getting new illustrated covers, and that they were SO beautiful, I just needed to get it and re-read it. The series is about Meggie, and one night, her father reads aloud from a book called Inkheart, and as he is reading aloud, the villain of the story steps out from the page into her living room. Here begins the adventure that Meggie had only read about in books. The one thing that middle grade books do so well is that they can really seem magical and build surprisingly intricate worlds. To be fair, I don’t remember much more about this series, but regardless, I’m super excited to re-read it!
