Coraline

Coraline, Neil Gaiman, 6 pounds on Amazon

A couple of years ago I watched Coraline the animated movie on HBO and I loved it. I did not know it was made upon a book and when I saw this, and have also seen that it was actually Neil Gaiman who wrote it, I definitely feel I want to read it. Then, as you can see on the cover, another author that I mentioned in this list, reviewed it and put into words the exact sensations I got from seeing the movie.

I can only expect the best from all the books mentioned here and I am looking forward to purchasing them all.
