Can I just say that THE BOOK JUMPER is, at first glance, a whole load of awesome? I mean, the concept is every book lover's dream. Seriously, have the magical power to jump INTO your favourite stories? YES PLEASE, THANK YOU. Needless to say, I had been waiting my whole life to fall in love with this book and I did not even realise.
I thought the whole concept of jumping into books was executed BRILLIANTLY. It was the thing I was most worried about going into the story because of those annoying little things called "high expectations". Turns out it was my favourite aspect of this book, which was incredibly satisfying. Seeing the characters explore the worlds of many classic books was an absolute blast, and the whole magic-system felt pretty well thought out. I would have liked to see a little more of MY favourite book *cough* prideandprejudice *cough*. But it really was a well executed concept and story that left me very happy.
My one and only issue was...
Wait for it...
You might know what's coming...
There was a little case of #instalove...
I only ever point this out in books because I appreciate when others point this out in their reviews. On one hand, I kind of get why there was instalove in The Book Jumper. When a story is contained in one normal-sized book, and that story contains romance, the romance usually tends to move quickly. So yes, I get it. But it's still not my favourite thing in the world of literature. In the case of this book, I really was able to look past that personal pet peeve, and once I accepted the romance for what it was, I really ended up enjoying even that aspect of the story. It had some very bittersweet moments towards the end that ended up really standing out to be after I had finished the book.
After finishing The Book Jumper, I really have a strong need for more books like this one. Please, we need more books that pander to our bookish obsessions! Well, I do anyway. This one was so much fun to read, so easy to become engrossed in, I would recommend it to anyone who simply loves books!
