I am so ashamed/The Riverman by Aaron Starmer MMGM

I am so ashamed.

I haven't blogged in, like, 5 months.


I have been Busy with a capitol B lately. But I will start blogging again.

Okey dokey! Time for some MMGM!!

The Riverman

Goodreads says:

Fiona Loomis is Alice, back from Wonderland. She is Lucy, returned from Narnia. She is Coraline, home from the Other World. She is the girl we read about in storybooks, but here's the difference: She is real.
  Twelve-year-old Alistair Cleary is her neighbor in a town where everyone knows each other. One afternoon, Fiona shows up at Alistair's doorstep with a strange proposition. She wants him to write her biography. What begins as an odd vanity project gradually turns into a frightening glimpse into a clearly troubled mind. For Fiona tells Alistair a secret. In her basement there's a gateway and it leads to the magical world of Aquavania, the place where stories are born. In Aquavania, there's a creature called the Riverman and he's stealing the souls of children. Fiona's soul could be next.

Alistair has a choice. He can believe her, or he can believe something else...something even more terrifying.

My review:

I am going to be flat-out honest with you here.


I am honestly so surprised it is not as known as it should be! Forget  Hunger Games, forget The Giver! This book is amazing! *deep breath* Ok, serious time now.

Aaron Starmer is a genius! A master with words! He creates this magical land (Aquavania) and turns it into something truly amazing. The characters are so vivid, so lifelike! I just wanted to jump right into the book at live it all. Why? Because I could! Because I could imagine it and feel it and take the plot and grasp it! This is, hands down, my favorite book ever. And it is a trilogy, and the next book, The Whisper,  is out, so I will read that as soon as I can get my hands on it. Long story short, this book will inspire you and pull on your heart strings in a way you have never imagined. This book is not only a good amazing book, but is a inspiration in 320 pages. I highly highly highly recommend The Riverman.

Well, that's that! I sincerely apologize for any spelling/grammar mistakes. Hope you enjoyed my review and byeeeeeeeeeeeee

  2. Thanks for this review. I wasn't familiar with this book, but I will put it on my TBR list.

  3. Welcome back! If this book is better than "The Hunger Games" and "The Giver" then it's definitely worth a shot! Thanks for the rec! :-)
