Review: Ink by Alice Broadway

*CLAXON* I’m back in the swing of a reading schedule and I’ve actually finished a book! I’ve finally clawed my way out of the reading slump that uni caused and I’m ready to jump back to it.

So…

First of all can we just loOK HOW PRETTYYY

I know we don’t judge books by their covers but come on. This is a thing of beauty right there. Looks glorious on your bookshelf, glorious whilst you’re fighting for elbow space on the tube, it’s just so pretty and that makes me happy.

I really liked this book. It was a lovely easy read that I just lapped up and sped through without even noticing the page numbers whizzing by. The book is set in a world where life is recorded through the ink on your skin and the citizens have strict beliefs as to why this must be the case. We join the protagonist, Leora Flint, in the aftermath of her father’s death, which has left her reeling. Through mourning him and visiting his skin book she discovers that something isn’t quite right, which leaves her questioning her whole life and her beliefs.

Victoria Aveyard at Waterstones Piccadilly!

Good morning!  Happy Monday (or not…we all have a grudge against this day of the week).  Today I’m going to give you some book-spiration by telling you about the exciting YA event I attended in central London last week.  It’s given me a couple of extras for my TBR (when doesn’t this happen…?) and hopefully you’ll see something you like too.  I have read some of the books I’m about to mention here, and I will post reviews as soon as I can. For those I haven’t read, I will read and review those as quickly as I can. Until then…let’s get on with it!
