Top 5 Tuesday: Characters I’d trade places with

Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
Today we’ll talk about some characters I’d love to trade places with!

#1 Blue from the Raven Cycle

I loved Blue’s vibe from the get-go. Her family is great and their house seems like a wonderful and interesting place to live at. However, what would interest me the most are – of course – her adventures with the raven boys. They are all fascinating characters that seem like genuienly great people to be friends with and have have conversations with. I’d take her spot in a heartbeat!

#2 Arthur Dent from the HHGTTG books

With everything that’s going on right now, I wouldn’t mind just fucking off into space and leaving the world to its own demise. Arthur gets to see and experience some really cool stuff, so by earth!

Hey guys!
This is the final installment in my series of posts on Cornelia Funke’s wonderful Inkeart trilogy. Let’s dive right in and see whether I liked part 3!

German Goodreads Cover – Inkdeath

 

The Plot:
Inkdeath picks up right after the heart wrenching cliffhanger we were left with in part 2. There are several problems at hand that need to be solved asap. The now immortal Adderhead has certainly not turned into a nice ago over the outlook of eternity. Orpheus who considers himself the best thing that ever happened to Ombra get more annoying by the minute. And then there is the little matter concerning Dustfinger…

 

The Rating:
I’ve mentioned it before but I can’t say it often enough. Cornelia Funke created a wonderful and magical world. The story is both every avid readers biggest dream and nightmare. To be able to get sucked into the story – literally – wouldn’t it be amazing? Maybe not according to Inkheart… Continue reading

Book vs. Movie: Inkheart

Hello my lovely readers!
A few days ago I wrote a post on Cornelia Funke’s wonderful novel Inkheart. I was pretty excited that there is a movie adapation and of course sat down to watch it immediately after I finished the book. But was it worth the time? (By the way, stay tuned for reviews on book 2+3, Inspell and Inkdeath!)

 

The Plot:
Meggie, a twelve-year-old girl, looks out the window of her room and sees a strange man standing in the yard. Little does she know that his appearance is bound to change her life forever.
This stranger is from another world, a world created with ink on paper. And Meggie’s father Mo brought him here. Him, and some darker characters…

 

Book vs. Movie:
I already covered my opinion on the book in detail, so let’s just do a quick summary: the novel as absolutely wonderful. The story is unique, the characters are to die for. It’s simply magical. Inkheart is a special book that connects in a certain way with everyone who loves to read. This novel will never let you go.
So, let’s talk about the film. Cornelia Funke herself is on board as producer, the cast list consists of Hollywood’s finest actors. What could go wrong here? The answer is: everything. Continue reading
