Cosa succede se « ...e vissero felici e contenti» non si rivela affatto essere tale? Delilah è una ragazza piuttosto solitaria che preferisce passare i pomeriggi in biblioteca, persa nei libri. In uno in particolare: Incantesimo fra le righe che in teoria è un fantasy ma che sembra terribilmente reale, al punto che il principe Oliver, oltre a essere coraggioso, avventuroso e focoso, parla a Delilah. Cioè: le parla sul serio! E salta fuori che Oliver è ben più che un personaggio di carta: è un teenager che si sente intrappolato nella sua vita letteraria e che non sopporta l’idea che il suo destino sia segnato. Oliver è certo che il mondo là fuori possa offrirgli qualcosa di interessante e vede in Delilah la sua chiave di accesso alla libertà. I due si buttano a capofitto nell’impresa di tirare fuori Oliver dal libro, un compito difficile e che i spinge ad approfondire la loro percezione del destino, del mondo e del loro posto nel mondo. Contemporaneamente cresce l’attrazione reciproca, un sentimento forte e tutt’altro che letterario...

This was super fluffy, cute, and easy to read. It felt like I was reading a fairy tale as a child! It doesn't feel like young adult, but it's a charming, refreshing read! Here's my booktalk: https://youtu.be/D59k9BvRTVg
a) Just because a woman/mermaid dislikes men doesn't make her a feminist . Oh my Lord, do I really have to bring this up after the Tempest fiasco? That makes her a misandrist: a man-hater. A feminist is a person who believes in equality for both men and women. GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HEADS. (This is no Leggi tutto
There is a very famous play by Tom Stoppard called Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. The play deals with metaphysical elements of two-dimensional characters who question their existence and its cyclical nature. Between the Lines reminded me of that play. It, too, deals with a character in a fic Leggi tutto
That was a fun, quick and adorable read for youngsters as if straight from a Disney movie and I won’t be surprised if it does make it to the big screen. It’s imaginative and entertaining and the premise of the novel is indeed a curious thought- that characters of the books we read could be alive and Leggi tutto
I'm not sure if the fact that I've read a few books by Jodi Picoult in the past affected my enjoyment of this novel, and even though I knew not to expect her usual story-type since it's written with her daughter, this was a lot different than what I had envisioned. It's a good book. It is. But I thi Leggi tutto

(This review will contain major spoilers) I really wanted to like this book. The idea of it was good- what book-loving girl hasn't wanted a fictional character? I've always been a sucker for fairy tales, and that's why the book appealed to me. But oh, was this book terrible. I could go on for hours ta Leggi tutto
Anyone familiar with Picoult’s solo adult books will know they usually involve moral issues and can be very confrontational. The first thing you need to do when you pick up this book: forget about her solo work and remember this is a joint effort. Trust me when I say it is something completely diffe Leggi tutto
Written by Jodi Picoult and her daughter Samantha van Leer, and it's evident from the very first line that the only writing Jodi did in this was adding her name to the cover. The book is targeted YA, but it is a very young YA. It lacked any of the punch, depth and insight that Jodi's work usually ha Leggi tutto
While the concept was cute and the illustrations fun, I can't help but wonder if this would have made it onto the shelves had Jodi's name not been attached. Don't get me wrong, for a first book written by a teen, it's good, and I am sure Jodi is proud of her daughter, but she has a long way to go be Leggi tutto
