Ink and Bone (The Great Library, #1) by Rachel Caine

The rot extends deeper, into every branch and root, for the Library now seeks not to enlighten, but to enslave. We are only the most visible casualties of a silent war, and as they lock collars on our necks and tell us it is for our protection, we know that worse will come.

I’m almost 50 pages into this book and I’m in love already. It’s part dystopian-part steampunk-part alternate history and full of fun. I will say that I’m a little confused as to what’s going on but that’s because the world-building is still being explained as it’s so early in the book. But I am loving the premise! As an ancient history nerd, I’ve often wondered what life would be like if the Great Library had never burnt down. Thank God for Caine wondering the same damn thing and bringing it to life!

Ascension (The Indigo Project) by Christopher De Sousa

“I don’t believe I’d have the right to question your sanity, given our bizarre line of work,” she contended. “I’ve just never known them to pursue such lengths before in support of our cause.”

-65% finished

So this book is interesting/confusing/unique. I am seriously confused by what’s going on, as there’s been a bit of an info dump but not enough to explain anything. Like I think there’s demons, aliens, Illuminati, and like mythical creatures all being mentioned and introduced. Seriously. All that’s missing now are some wizards and a princess! But I’m finding myself so intrigued that even though I’m confused about 80% of the time, this story is just pulling me in. Also, the writing is extremely dense and reads like literary fiction. It still surprises me while I’m reading. I mean, come on, teenagers do not think or talk this way! Has anyone else read this book so far? Does it all come together at some point? It’s like a train wreck that I can’t look away, I have got to finish it!


What’s your Teaser Tuesday look like? If you participate, leave a comment with a link to your post or just leave a comment with your own teaser! I love to be teased. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. This is my first book by her but I’m really enjoying it so far! I’m glad I waited to read it though because I think the sequel is being released later this year.
      Glad you enjoyed the teaser! You should totally get it. Too many books is never a problem! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. If you like vampires, you should try Glass Houses by her. It’s the first book in the Morganville Vampires series & it’s kind of my favourite. Some people don’t like it, but I do!!!

        The next time I go to B&N I think imma buy it. :3 And if the sequel comes out the year then that’s even more awesome!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Haha, I know! Like I have no idea what’s really going on but I need to find out what’ll happen next. I’m kind of wondering if this is going to be one of those books where it all comes together right at the end… Haha, not yet but almost halfway!

  1. Glad you’re enjoying Ink and Bone as I really liked it. It is a bit confusing at the start. I thought for sure it was steampunk but thankfully it isn’t really (I’m still not convinced by the steam punk thing).
