My Favourite things Inspired by Tahereh Mafi’s Favourite Things
We’re here to celebrate Tahereh Mafi’s new book Furthermore. For this post I was highly encouraged to create an image board of my favourite things by Penguin Random house who we joined with to present these things to you. It was a glorious joining. With rainbows and unicorns. Obviously, for my post, I wanted to bring to you all the amazing bookish stuff I’ve been coveting the last few months and am probably going to go broke over. So here are the six top things I’ve been wanting real bad and below is some information and a giveaway for Tahereh Mafi’s new book, Furthermore.
Released August 2016
The bestselling author of the Shatter Me series takes readers beyond the limits of their imagination in this captivating new middle grade adventure where
color is currency, adventure is inevitable, and friendship is found in the most unexpected places.
There are only three things that matter to twelve-year-old Alice Alexis Queensmeadow: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; magic and color, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him. But it’s been almost three years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she’s about to embark on one to find the other.
But bringing Father home is no small matter. In order to find him she’ll have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is a boy named Oliver whose own magical ability is based in lies and deceit–and with a liar by her side in a land where nothing is as it seems, it will take all of Alice’s wits (and every limb she’s got) to find Father and return home to Ferenwood in one piece. On her quest to find Father, Alice must first find herself–and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss.
