New on my bookshelf {books to films}

Welcome to another episode of New on my Bookshelf! 
This time I've got novels that have all been made into films. 
I managed to get these second hand (but in still pretty good condition!) for $3 each. 
CA-RAY-ZAY! I know.

The Cracks in the Kingdom by Jaclyn Moriarty

The Cracks in the Kingdom (#2 The Colours of Madeleine) by Jaclyn Moriarty

This book is stunningly wonderful. 

And I'm not saying that just so that I have something to say, I'm saying it from the bottom of my heart, with my whole heart and being. It's not an embellished description or me trying to use filler adjectives to puff out a review (I have to admit to doing that sometimes for a few of my lower star reviews) ... those are factual words that you might not believe if you haven't already read this book. 

It's magical and marvellous. 
It's incredibly well thought out and I've read nothing like this before, outside this series. 
The fantasy world I dive into is indescribable. I was literally sitting here for a good while trying to find a word more fitting than 'indescribable' but I simply cannot think of any words that could even come close to accurately describing this combined contemporary/fantasy setting. It is so imaginative (I guess this is one measly word to describe it!) and I had such a pleasant time delving into this world of cracks, colours and kingdoms. 

It's almost 4am and I need to sleep so I'm going to finish this post when I wake up!
