The Weeping Books of Blinney Lane (Book Review)

Imagine, you get a chance to dive into one of your favourite books being able to interact with it’s characters. Which book would you prefer other than Harry potter?

The Weeping Books of Blinney Lane is a fantastic fantasy fiction within the limits of 400 pages. The moment you get hold on this book, you slip into two wonderful worlds created by the Author. The Blinney Lane and the Farwin wood.

BLURB

handsome deliveryman.

Contentment seems within reach, even if she has to deal with the daily phenomena that occur in her shop. But when her spirited nephew shows up to spend the summer, all bets are off. Now Sarah must keep Ricky from discovering the curse of Blinney Lane and awakening its full power.

Will Ricky heed Sarah’s warnings? Or will he accidentally awaken the magical weeping books
and send Sarah back to a land she swore to forget?

Get ready for a modern fairy tale that will sweep you away to lands beyond your imagination.

What made me pick this book?

The mention of ‘Weeping Books’ in the title hooked me at the very first sight. Why should books weep? I was very curious. The added attraction of a beautiful cover also captured my attention. Just give a look. Isn’t that cover beautiful?

My Review

I have only three words for this book. ‘JUST LOVED IT’. Of all the books I read in 2018, this is the first book that stood up to my expectation from the very beginning till the end. It was a wonderful read. I am really happy to have got my hands over this book. Thanks to Digital Blog Tours for sending me a review copy as a part of this Blog tour.

The simplicity in Damara’s language is very captive. The story has a strong plot and perfectly developed characters. It was an entertaining as well as a thought provoking read. When I finished, I badly wanted to visit the Blinney Lane and Farwin Wood, and meet all the characters over there. Such beautiful impression they left in my mind.

This is one of such books that can be re-read once in a while. Also the author is working on a sequel to this book which will be out in January 2019. Fingers crossed for the sequel.

The book has a huge scope for continuing series. I appreciate the beautiful imagination of the Author. Dear Drea Damara, please write more books. Wish you all the best.

  1. Sounds like an interesting read😊 will check out

  2. I so very badly want to know what is the curse and what happens after it is awakened and what is it with the weeping books. Quite intriguing. I am adding to my TBR. It was a good review invoking the curiosity and at the same time not giving out anything.
