I actually thought it was illegal for a novel with a cover this good to be so painful Illegal But when I checked with my lawyer she said I should get out unless I was going to pay her and I am definitely not going to pay her Pfft So I m still not sure about that But what I am sure about is that Amanda Sun has a lot of potential as a writer even if this book was a painful mess for me I know that doesn t seem to make sense Even I can t explain itIt s redeeming feature is that once the relationship between Katie and Tomo was underway the story did pick up considerably due to the not insignificant sexual chemistry between the two No points if you re able to guess the reason for thatOkay I lie I never really got Katie s Tomo obsession I can tell Amanda Sun has a talent and knack for manufacturing a sweet and tender relationship When Tomo and Katie were together it was the only time I really liked them Individually though meeeeehhhhhh Tomo was like the paper drawings he made just a bunch of ink on the pageKatie fares only marginally better This girl must seriously be a 911 truther or false flagger Everything makes her suspicious Give her a look and she ll stalk you for months Teenage boy spends time alone Most normal people would rightly assume excessive masturbation on his part Not Katie Something s gotta be up with that amirite I could make fun of her all day but you have to give it to her Crazy stalker or not the girl has agency She believes in her instincts stands up for herself and makes her own decisions Especially when it comes to the decision to stalk Gotta give that girl some serious stalking props too may I addSo the characters can be flat and irritating but the story still has entertainment value and the setting itself is detailed and almost lovingly illustrated for the reader But and here s the big BUT Narratives are a bit like pitches If you see them coming too often then it s gameover Ink has so many tells I hope it doesn t play cards The characters are always about five steps behind the reader and every plot point is thoroughly predictableUltimately it s not a horrible book It s just generic which is the most disappointing of all Because for many people out there Japan and everything related to it holds a special place in our hearts So when an author is setting their novel there it really needs to be something amazing It needs to be near perfection to live up to all our hopes and dreams There s a lot of power in fulfilling hopes and dreams And you know what they say about great powerGoddamn it Ink Will you take this seriously This review and others like it also appear on my blog Cuddlebuggery Book BlogThis ARC was provided to me by the publisher for reviewing purposes This did not entice me to be any less annoyingly opinionated than I would otherwise be

This book broke my heart Not in the way you might think thoughI ve become very familiar with a certain concept that much of YA has been using lately The same concept that I discussed in my review of Reboot by Amy Tintera It s when a book takes a gimmick a brilliant concept an intriguing setting etc and still follows the basic YA formula riddled with cliches like Outcast ordinary heroine who might actually not be ordinary at all and have something to do with the supernatural aspect thus making her special Badboy hero with a mysterious secret and a tortured past who constantly pushes heroine away because he s dangerous Best friends that may as well be cardboard cutouts and who the heroine always ditches to spend time with the hero An Other Guy character that is just as hot and mysterious as the hero but nicer Insta love If boy and girl be together it will cause a lot of problems and bring danger and shit aka forbidden loveAll of the above sadly applies to InkI don t think I ve ever been so disappointed in a book before at least not this bad I m not exaggerating I m literally crushed right now My hopes for this book were just that high I mean come on a modern YA book set in Japan that is based around Japanese mythology How awesome does that soundBut upon reading it I was utterly baffled BAFFLED I SAYOkay lemme just put it this way Take the Karate Kid movies for example the original and the remake The original only had the kid move to a new town while the remake has him move all the way to another continent What I m trying to say is that this book is just taking the age old cliche of girl moves to a new town thing a step further but it s still a goddamn clicheY know what I ll just say it up front I think this book is very similar to Twilight ducks and covers Wait wait hear me out YOU read this book and tell me you don t notice the similarities Or rather just look at the cliches I listed above and tell me that doesn t sound like Twilight This book basically takes the Twilight plot changes up the supernatural aspect and makes the setting in Japan There I said it And I m not taking it backI ll give the book credit that I did enjoy the beginning parts though mostly because it was such a nice change to read a YA book that takes place in Japan of all places I loved seeing the culture and things of that nature But since I m not that knowledgeable on Japanese related things I m not sure if the author got down everything perfectly or butchered it so I ll let the experts critiue that I enjoyed it though It s why I gave the book an extra starBut ultimately all of that was overshadowed by the sheer unoriginality of the plot And the clusterfuck of cliches Initially I liked Katie the protagonist but it didn t take long for her to become a Mary Sue and even becoming a borderline stalker of the Lucinda Price kind Like really she did not know when to leave Tomohiro alone I mean yeah I get that you re curious about him but let the guy have his secrets for cry eyeTomohiro s your typical get away from me I m dangerous hero Except for the fact that he s Asian there s literally nothing that makes him stand out among the hoards of YA badboys And the romance between him and Katie ugh Apparently Katie also has something to do with the supernatural aspect and if she keeps being around Tomo his powers might spiral out of controlEven the supernatural element wasn t that interesting It was just there I thought there would be like some kind of other world inside the drawings y know I just thought it would be a lot epic than it is But nope It was just like whatever and the book s main focus was on whether or not Katie and Tomo will be together or not because just read these There was this nagging unsettling feeling like the balance of the world was tipping Katie talking about the fact that Tomohiro might be avoiding her We lay there clinging to each other knowing the world would tilt if we let go that without each other everything would fall out of balanceARE YOU KIDDING ME You really think that the whole world would fall out of balance if you two aren t together WHAT KIND OF The book ended in the most predictable way possible and I m not sure I ll be reading any books from this series Or maybe I will just to see if there will be any improvements at all because God the potential This had all the potential to be a fantastic book but the smorgasbord of cliches and the recycled plot just ruined it allAlthough I will give the book this I think it would work well as an Anime or Manga due to all the tropes Animes and Mangas are always covered in cliches and cheese so I feel like if this book were an Anime or Manga instead I would have somewhat excused it maybe even enjoyed it But no I m just at a point where I m tired of seeing YA books that don t break the mold in any way All this book did as far as innovation in YA goes was be set in Japan That s literally itA book has never broken my heart in this way and guuurl does it hurt I did get one lesson learned out of reading this book though It s to never have such high hopes for a book ever again because it could lead to devastating results I guess all I can do is hope for the best and expect the worst with YA at this pointThank you to NetGalley and Harleuin for sending me this galley And right on my birthday April 2nd too At the time I thought it was the perfect birthday present but now uh thanks anyways

This started out as a pretty good book I liked the setting I love Japanese culture and yes I watch J and K dramas so I was hoping this one will shape out as one of them But cooler Don t judge me The author did a very good job with the feel of the culture and people At least at the beginning of the book I wanted to have a better description of the city though I didn t manage to form an image for it in my mind and it kind of frustrated me among other things that I will mention as we go onAs I mentioned before the book was pretty good for about 2 3 chapters Then Katie our lovely MC meets Tomohiro the hot Japanese dude and she becomes obsessed with him Literally obsessed I can t believe the amount of stupid shit this girl did Climbing a tall wall and screaming after a stranger like a lunatic only to remember that you re wearing a skirt and half the school can see your underwear Buying a bike just to stalk your current obsession BECAUSE you re sure he s up to something What the hell What he was hiding why he was pushing me away He s just a stranger who wants nothing to do with you And you are a stalker who keeps on bothering him It s that simple Maybe he was onto me Maybe he was messing with me again Another thing that pissed me off about this book is the love triangle Of course we had to have a love triangle And it s forced as fuck What would a Young Adult book be without a love triangle Our lovely Katie Greene gets not one but two guys with overly sweet smelling hair gels It s Japan after all they all have hair gels and ear rings It s a thing there So yeah you get the too sweet too kind always there to help third wheel You need to teach young girls to friendzone the good guys and go for the dicks That s how life goesAnother thing that bothered me small as it is is how easy the Mc managed to have complex conversations in Japanese only after a few months of studying the language As far as I know Japanese is a difficult language and reuires a lot of time to master Is she a genius for managing to achieve this so fast She didn t act like a genius throughout the part that I barely managed to read Just sayin What else didn t I pick on The story is silly and boring the characters are cheesy and boring There were some drawings in the book they looked cool Not really impressed for some reason And Katie and Tomohiro s relationship evolved way too fast Warui he whispered in apology and I knew then that I couldn t live without him even when he was infuriating Which was pretty much all the time And the drop that filled the cup Suki he breathed I love you and then the softness of his lips pressed against mine and the world caught fire everything light and f lame and burning Ok so first of all from what I know Japanese people take their time with dropping the I love you bomb than Westerners They go for something like I like you first and I love you when it s really serious I m 50% in and he s already declaring his love This is complete bullAfter this point I couldn t make myself go on with the book and I had to drop it I have no idea if things get better later on and to tell you the truth I don t give a monkey s ass if they do and I really don t care about any of the characters If it were to me they should all die and save ourselves the trouble of reading these silly books Cancel a series save a tree You know important stuffReview also posted on
