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

I’m gonna try something new today instead of writing my typical paragraph about what I’m think of the books so far. But I will say this, I’m really enjoying this one!

In an exhilarating new series, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine rewrites history, creating a dangerous world where the Great Library of Alexandria has survived the test of time…

Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly—but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.

Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.

When his friend inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life—and soon both heretics and books will burn…

Ascension (The Indigo Project) by Christopher De Sousa

I still have no idea what the hell is going on with this book. I feel like there was a prequel or something but no one bothered to tell me.

Katherine Munroe is most definitely not your typical teen and just about the only thing typical are her high school boy problems. She does however have quite the amazing ability to draw and much to her own confusion she accidentally lights things on fire. Even more plaguing are her reoccurring hallucinations, always thinking she is losing it, or so she thought. But then, after a horrific attack on her life resulting in the death of her father, she realizes there is something…more. Anzu, a winged beast of a different sort, and subject of Katherine’s hallucinations, saves her and become’s her guardian.

Bereaved over the loss of her father, she quickly discovers the unthinkable. Her entire township, as she knew, is a secret government experiment. And her father? Well, he was more of a caretaker since her birth. This rogue operation, better known as Project Indigo, is at war with a corrupted race of celestial beings.

In order to save the world and defeat The Corrupted they need the help of Katherine. Through special training and the discovery of her abilities, Katherine and Project Indigo battle the entities set to destroy them while she discovers the truth about her family, her lineage, and her future.


Recently Finished Reading…

This past week was a really good reading week for me. I totally recommend all 3 of these books to everyone. If you’ve had these on your TBR list for a while, bump them to the top. You won’t regret it!

Reading Next…

2 library books, 1 author-requested book review, 2 book club BOTMs, and 3 NetGalley Arcs… Yikes. What are the odds that I complete this list by the end of April? Yeah, I don’t think it’s very good either.

  1. I bought Dorothy Must Die a couple of weeks ago and have yet to read it — but it looks brilliant! You’ll have to tell me whether or not you like it 🙂

  2. You’ve been reading a lot of “what the hell is going on” books lately. Huh? I’m so with you on Dorothy and Half Bad. Witches, witches, and more witches!! Love it! And of course I’m reading Passenger for our BOTM. I’m hoping that one is good cause it’s super long. I’m loving the cover of These Broken Stars. Maybe I’ll check that one out, too. So many good choices it’s like a book buffet. 🙂
