Synopsis/Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):
“Third in the modern-classic and bestselling bookwandering series that celebrates all that is best in life: books, adventure, friendship – and cake.
Strange things are happening. A man comes into Pages Co looking for a book… then suddenly can’t remember it. Tilly and her family feel like the world is changing – but can’t quite put their finger on why.
Meanwhile, the Underwoods are expanding their control over bookwandering – and they still have their sights set on Tilly. Leaving the safety of the bookshop, Tilly heads to America to find the legendary Archivists and save bookwandering
… or at least, that’s the plan. Wandering in layers of story, Tilly and her friend Oskar come up against dangers they could never have expected, team up with an unexpectedly familiar face, and ultimately find themselves taking on the biggest threat to stories there has ever been – with only their courage and ingenuity to help them. As well as some of their dearest fictional friends”
My Thoughts & Review
Tilly and the Map of Storiesis the third instalment in the Pages & Co Series. If you haven’t read the first two books not to worry there is a quick recap of what you’ve missed before your thrown into an action packed story that you won’t want to put down till you reach the last page.
In this instalment Tilly continues her bookwondering adventure with best friend Oskar. In this one they travel to the Library of Congress, the Great Library of Alexandria, and deeper into the book wandering world. Here they discover the true meaning of book magic and what it truly means to be lost in book wandering story.
Once again James has created brilliant characters, and Tilly and Oskar have grown from strength to strength as the series has progressed. Oskar really had his moment to shine in this book. He had more of a role and it was brilliant. Also, the introduction of the new characters was well done. They all contributed to the plot and they made it an even more enjoyable read.
This was by far my favourite book of the whole series!!! Fans of this series will definitely not be disappointed.
A massive thank you to the publishers HarperCollins UK and NetGalley for my eARC in return for an honest and unbiased review.
