    2.5 stars. Ok let me start with leaving the book description here because HOW AMAZING DOES THIS SOUND: "A certain pen, a certain book, and a certain person can craft entirely new worlds through a branch of science called scriptology. Elsa comes from one such world that was written ...

    One of my least favorite things in the world is when I read a book that I self-hyped so much in my mind and then the actual product monumentally disappoints. And Ink, Iron, and Glass is the PERFECT example, so I guess it's good for something after all :') What makes it worse is ...

    DNF at 14%. And thus, my long streak of finishing every book I read comes to an end. The book cover pronounces Ink, Iron, and Glass to be ?exciting and original?, but while the latter may be true, the former ... well, let?s just say that I felt the exact opposite of excited. ...

    ETA: So glad I picked this up. The action picked up immediately, and I saw new depth with the characters. Plus, wow, some surprises that I'm still reeling from! ...

    This book sounds AMAZING ...

    Meh is all I can muster for this book, great idea and a lot of potential but the execution left a lot to be desired, it didn?t work at least for me , I thought the author could have done a lot more to expand the characters and explore the world she created in this book, instead there...

    This book is super hard for me to rate because it's somewhere between 4 to 5 stars. It has a brilliantly conceived world and the world building is superb (and not something I usually harp on or care about). It's a quiet book, doesn't have a lot of flashy plot twists, but there's just s...

    3.5 stars I enjoyed Ink, Iron, and Glass! It comes off as a bit of a quieter historical fantasy, but it promises nonstop adventure and a cast of delightful characters that work together to pretty much save the world. The setting was pretty extraordinary: we?re looking at the Victo...

    I really enjoyed the story. it was a concept I haven't read before. I can't wait for the next one! ...

    Actual rating: 3.5 stars I really enjoyed this action-packed XIXth century (PLUS IT?S MOSTLY SET IN ITALY, IN TUSCANY NO LESS ?) steampunk book. Admittedly, after reading that blurb, I expected something a little bit different, but this wasn?t bad either. It?s just - we d...

    This is such a great book with an interesting concept! Unfortunately, I just wasn't in the mood for it right now, but I wanted to read it before I returned it to the library. I'm interested in seeing where this series goes, and I'll probably be giving this a reread before the sequel co...

    Elsa lives in Veldana, a world that came to life via scriptology. Scriptology is a branch of science where a certain pen, book and author bring alive a world that did not previously exist. Her mother Jumi, an expert scriptologist, is in charge of altering and expanding Veldana until on...

    The world is very intersting .From the beginning, it was holding my attention.They went to Italy and I really wanted to read something set in Italy.I liked the parts of the four that I actually dreaded the parts about the adults. Luckily these was small parts. The ending though, I pred...

    I tried, you guys. I really did. Part of me still actually wants to attempt to finish this book because I read so much of it (176 pages) but I can't. If I'm not enjoying it by now, I just don't believe I ever will be. So what went wrong? I just found this book boring, and the action...

    Wow! Yes! This is my kind of book! Intelligent, clever, creative, and action-packed story line; intriguing and diverse characters, who experience personal growth; interesting, clever, and at times witty dialogue; surprises and unexpected twists - everything I look for in a YA fantasy! ...

    DNF at 40% Sorry guys but I just COULD NOT get into this. I didn't care about the missing mother, the 'mad people', and honestly the whole thing. I'm sorry. So sorry. I just wanted to love this so profoundly but I just found it so 'meh'. Thank you to Netgalley for the chance...

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and chose to review it. This in no way impacts my opinion. A slow start but an amazing finish. Definitely check this one out when it hits shelves in a couple weeks! Plus see my blog tour stop on February 19th on Books and Ladders! ...

    Warning: Might contain spoilers. First off, I know they say 'Don't judge a book by it's cover" but I need to give some credit for the gorgeous cover art. i loved it on first glance and that was really what made me pick this up. Don't get me wrong, the story itself sounded alright t...

    This is such a great book with an interesting concept! Unfortunately, I just wasn't in the mood for it right now, but I wanted to read it before I returned it to the library. I'm interested in seeing where this series goes, and I'll probably be giving this a reread before the sequel co...

    Elsa lives in Veldana, a world that came to life via scriptology. Scriptology is a branch of science where a certain pen, book and author bring alive a world that did not previously exist. Her mother Jumi, an expert scriptologist, is in charge of altering and expanding Veldana until on...

    The world is very intersting .From the beginning, it was holding my attention.They went to Italy and I really wanted to read something set in Italy.I liked the parts of the four that I actually dreaded the parts about the adults. Luckily these was small parts. The ending though, I pred...

    I tried, you guys. I really did. Part of me still actually wants to attempt to finish this book because I read so much of it (176 pages) but I can't. If I'm not enjoying it by now, I just don't believe I ever will be. So what went wrong? I just found this book boring, and the action...

    Wow! Yes! This is my kind of book! Intelligent, clever, creative, and action-packed story line; intriguing and diverse characters, who experience personal growth; interesting, clever, and at times witty dialogue; surprises and unexpected twists - everything I look for in a YA fantasy! ...

    DNF at 40% Sorry guys but I just COULD NOT get into this. I didn't care about the missing mother, the 'mad people', and honestly the whole thing. I'm sorry. So sorry. I just wanted to love this so profoundly but I just found it so 'meh'. Thank you to Netgalley for the chance...

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and chose to review it. This in no way impacts my opinion. A slow start but an amazing finish. Definitely check this one out when it hits shelves in a couple weeks! Plus see my blog tour stop on February 19th on Books and Ladders! ...

    3.5 stars I enjoyed Ink, Iron, and Glass! It comes off as a bit of a quieter historical fantasy, but it promises nonstop adventure and a cast of delightful characters that work together to pretty much save the world. The setting was pretty extraordinary: we?re looking at the Victo...

    I tried, you guys. I really did. Part of me still actually wants to attempt to finish this book because I read so much of it (176 pages) but I can't. If I'm not enjoying it by now, I just don't believe I ever will be. So what went wrong? I just found this book boring, and the action...

    One of my least favorite things in the world is when I read a book that I self-hyped so much in my mind and then the actual product monumentally disappoints. And Ink, Iron, and Glass is the PERFECT example, so I guess it's good for something after all :') What makes it worse is ...

    DNF at 14%. And thus, my long streak of finishing every book I read comes to an end. The book cover pronounces Ink, Iron, and Glass to be ?exciting and original?, but while the latter may be true, the former ... well, let?s just say that I felt the exact opposite of excited. ...

    ETA: So glad I picked this up. The action picked up immediately, and I saw new depth with the characters. Plus, wow, some surprises that I'm still reeling from! ...

    This book sounds AMAZING ...

    Meh is all I can muster for this book, great idea and a lot of potential but the execution left a lot to be desired, it didn?t work at least for me , I thought the author could have done a lot more to expand the characters and explore the world she created in this book, instead there...

    3.5/5 stars!!! The world building in this book is absolutely amazing y?all and the plot was just so unique?? what a nice change from your typical YA fantasy honestly bless ?? I wouldn?t say I loved this book since the characters and complexity of the plot could use some work ...

    NO NO NO, HOLY MOTHER OF PLOT TWISTS. MY POOR HEART. I'm writing this review STRAIGHT AWAY after completing 'Ink, Iron and Glass' by Gwendolyn Clare, and I'm in complete utter agony. This book was gripping, delicious and delightfully entertaining - it pulled me in from the ver...

    This book is super hard for me to rate because it's somewhere between 4 to 5 stars. It has a brilliantly conceived world and the world building is superb (and not something I usually harp on or care about). It's a quiet book, doesn't have a lot of flashy plot twists, but there's just s...

    3.5 stars I enjoyed Ink, Iron, and Glass! It comes off as a bit of a quieter historical fantasy, but it promises nonstop adventure and a cast of delightful characters that work together to pretty much save the world. The setting was pretty extraordinary: we?re looking at the Victo...

    Actual rating: 3.5 stars I really enjoyed this action-packed XIXth century (PLUS IT?S MOSTLY SET IN ITALY, IN TUSCANY NO LESS ?) steampunk book. Admittedly, after reading that blurb, I expected something a little bit different, but this wasn?t bad either. It?s just - we d...

    This is such a great book with an interesting concept! Unfortunately, I just wasn't in the mood for it right now, but I wanted to read it before I returned it to the library. I'm interested in seeing where this series goes, and I'll probably be giving this a reread before the sequel co...

    Elsa lives in Veldana, a world that came to life via scriptology. Scriptology is a branch of science where a certain pen, book and author bring alive a world that did not previously exist. Her mother Jumi, an expert scriptologist, is in charge of altering and expanding Veldana until on...

    The world is very intersting .From the beginning, it was holding my attention.They went to Italy and I really wanted to read something set in Italy.I liked the parts of the four that I actually dreaded the parts about the adults. Luckily these was small parts. The ending though, I pred...

    I tried, you guys. I really did. Part of me still actually wants to attempt to finish this book because I read so much of it (176 pages) but I can't. If I'm not enjoying it by now, I just don't believe I ever will be. So what went wrong? I just found this book boring, and the action...

    Wow! Yes! This is my kind of book! Intelligent, clever, creative, and action-packed story line; intriguing and diverse characters, who experience personal growth; interesting, clever, and at times witty dialogue; surprises and unexpected twists - everything I look for in a YA fantasy! ...

    DNF at 40% Sorry guys but I just COULD NOT get into this. I didn't care about the missing mother, the 'mad people', and honestly the whole thing. I'm sorry. So sorry. I just wanted to love this so profoundly but I just found it so 'meh'. Thank you to Netgalley for the chance...

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and chose to review it. This in no way impacts my opinion. A slow start but an amazing finish. Definitely check this one out when it hits shelves in a couple weeks! Plus see my blog tour stop on February 19th on Books and Ladders! ...

    Warning: Might contain spoilers. First off, I know they say 'Don't judge a book by it's cover" but I need to give some credit for the gorgeous cover art. i loved it on first glance and that was really what made me pick this up. Don't get me wrong, the story itself sounded alright t...
