Herchelle, thank you so much for the wishlist grant! I can't remember who recommended it to me, but I am looking forward to reading it. How thoughtful!

"High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the death of his mother, with only the books on his shelf for company. But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness. Angry and alone, he takes refuge in his imagination and soon finds that reality and fantasy have begun to meld. While his family falls apart around him, David is violently propelled into a world that is a strange reflection of his own -- populated by heroes and monsters and ruled by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a mysterious book, The Book of Lost Things.

Taking readers on a vivid journey through the loss of innocence into adulthood and beyond, New York Times bestselling author John Connolly tells a dark and compelling tale that reminds us of the enduring power of stories in our lives."

Picked up this book at the Calgary BookCrossing January meet-up. The extensive notes at the back of the book about fairy tales is what sold me on this.

For some reason I thought this was YA, but it's definitely not written for kids even though the main character is a boy who finds himself in another realm. There are some pretty dark points in the book, but it's easy to forget that fairy tales were not always these whimsical stories. It was neat to see the author putting his own spin on classic tales (hence the lengthy references in the back). And I do appreciate the appearance of the classic Two Door Riddle where one guard only speaks the truth and one guard only speaks lies. Excellent read if you enjoy dark fairy tales.
