Tilly and The Bookwanderers by Anna James | Book Review

Title: Tilly and the Bookwanderers (Pages & Co. #1)

Author: Anna James

How did I get it? I got it during the Kindle Deals sales on Black Friday.

What’s it about?

“Since her mother’s disappearance, eleven-year-old Tilly Pages has found comfort in the stories at Pages & Co., her grandparents’ bookshop. But when her favorite characters, Anne of Green Gables and Alice from Wonderland, start showing up at the shop, Tilly’s adventures become very real. Not only can she follow Anne and Alice into their books, she discovers she can bookwander into any story she chooses. Tilly’s new ability leads her to fun and exciting adventures, but danger may be lurking on the very next page…

When new secrets are uncovered, it’s up to Tilly to solve the mystery of what happened to her mother all those years ago. From debut author Anna James comes a charming and funny adventure about a bookish young heroine, a mysterious librarian, and a magical bookshop that will delight book lovers everywhere.” – Goodreads


“Books can change minds and change worlds, open doors and open minds, and plant seeds that can grow into magical or even terrifying things. Stories are things to be loved and respected at the same time; never underestimate the power of them.”

This is such a wonderful and heartwarming middle-grade adventure fantasy. The perfect book for readers that love books about books. This follows 11-year-old Tilly as she learns that she comes from a family of bookwanderers. Not only that but her favorite characters can appear outside of her books within her family’s bookstore. What a fantastic ability it would be to be able to step into my favorite books the way Tilly gets to in this series. I would love it. This fun read has so many of the things I enjoy in a cozy middle grade. Great friendships, adventure, a little mystery, and a fantastic world I can lose myself in for a bit. I cannot wait to continue with the series.

My Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

As always keep on reading and stay book nerdy my friends!
