"It doesn't matter. I have books, new books, and I can bear anything as long as there are books."

When Mori discovers that her mother is using black magic, she decides to intervene. The ensuing clash between mother and daughter leaves Mori bereft of her twin sister, crippled for life and unable to return to the Welsh Valleys that were her own kingdom.

Mori finds solace and strength in her beloved books. But her mother is bent on revenge, and nothing and no one - not even Tolkien - can save her from the final reckoning.

I was all ready to love this book (diary format! faerie! book references!) when I picked it up, but while I liked some of it, some of it was just... meh. I read it in 2013 and can't remember much about it now - I did like it how it highlighted the importance of books and libraries.

A heartwarming, intelligent and perceptive story with interesting characters and atmospheric setting. I loved the combination of real and magical, sad, touching and funny. Despite the fantasy elements, it's very believable, too. And who wouldn't adore a book that is based on the love of reading and books!

I finally read this! I loved the love of books and libraries and the magic and fairies, but the overall plot was even boring at times. I was anticipating something bigger to happen all the time, but it never did. If you like "atmospheric" books that describe settings and feelings rather than very plot-driven books, this may be the book for you. For me the book was not a favourite, but nice enough to read.
