"Meditation. That's the key. Supposedly. Calming your mind ind total silence. Understanding your connection to the natural world and all that. You do that, and you can hear it. All the talking." — Colin Meloy, Wildwood
Hey guys, hope you are doing well today! Yesterday as you may have seen on my story, I received Wildwood written by Colin Meloy with illustrations by Carson Ellis and LOOK AT THIS COVER!!
Wildwood is a middle grade book, I wanted to read something big but easy, and mostly to escape the real world between my readings for University and thanks to @thedogearedpage
I found the perfect book!
Carson Ellis quickly became my new favorite illustrator of all time, her work is sincerely breathtaking! I've seen that she published some illustrated books and I'm planning on getting them asap! Especially the one called "Home"💕🙌🏻
I may be late to the party you would say, because Wildwood has been written in 2011 I believe, but I'm so happy to know literally NOTHING about it and can't wait to read more of it!
You probably don't know it but I'm a huge fan of Portland, I've never been there but constantly look to pictures, videos, articles of it! And you will understand why I'm sharing you this random fact about me in the following text:
The 541 page novel, inspired by classic fantasy novels and folk tales, is the story of two seventh-graders who are drawn into a hidden, magical forest, while trying to rescue a baby kidnapped by crows. They get caught up in an epic struggle, and learn of their connection to a magical parallel world while confronting adult authorities who are often cowardly or dishonest. The natural beauty and local color of Portland, Oregon figure prominently in the book.🌲🌲
Now you get it why this book is perfect for me right?
Have you guys read this book? I believe it is a trilogy (or maybe a book series I have no ideas, but the thing I'm sure about is that there is currently 3 books available!)
Have a nice day 💕💕💕 Tomorrow I'll be posting something special 😏😏
