#Review ~ Ink, Iron, and Glass (Ink, Iron, and Glass #1) by Gwendolyn Clare

Posted May 26, 2018 by Michelle in Review / 3 Comments

This book has a beautiful cover, awesome sounding synopsis and a MC I disliked with a PASSION! I am sorry but about 40 pages I just couldn’t get past the fact that I just wasn’t liking her at all. I wanted strong and independent, I got obnoxious and rather mean. I get what was happening sucked but I just wasn’t liking her or understanding what was going on, it needed a full world build before anything even started.

The world was in some sort of book or someone created the world in a book. 40 pages in (I know it’s not a lot) I didn’t understand the world at all and have no idea what was going on with the ink, books, portal, earth world. Like I felt that needed to be addressed before all of action could start, at least some of it could be addressed.

I didn’t DNF, I have this on my “Try again Later” shelf on goodreads because maybe I just wasn’t in the right mind to really get into it. I am super bummed because it sounded so great. I was also having a hard time with the writing style. If you read this and LOVED it and thought I might be missing something, let me know. I would love to know if you think I should give it another try.

    I felt the exact same way! I wanted to love it, I mean look at the cover, but I simply couldn’t. I tried three times and that’s my limit.

    • She just wasn’t what I was expecting. I was excited about the idea but as the first few pages passed I realized I wasn’t going to find out what the world was and it totally threw me. Like I understood but that was from the synopsis, I needed a little bit of world build. Three times is my limit also so I might go back.
