Ink (The Paper Gods series - Book 1)

Ink - Amanda Sun 2.5 StarsI was looking for a book to read on Goodreads when I came upon Ink. As soon as I read the word "Japan" on the blurb I said "I MUST HAVE THIS!". Ok, some yelling may have been involved as well as some embarrassing dancing from happiness. Let's say I'm a sucker for all things japanese and one of my dreams is to go to Japan so you must know that my expectations were really high. Like above the sky high, some airplanes may or may not have been victims of my expectations. So it was with great sadness that I found myself not really liking Ink.Now, don't start throwing stuff at me, some might love this book, it just wasn't my piece of cake. We have Katie, an american girl who goes to Japan to leave with her aunt after her mother died. One of the things I didn't like about Katie was her interactions with her aunt. While her aunt always tried to make her feel welcomed in Japan and wanted her to try embracing the culture, Katie was always behaving badly with her and having fits.Towards the end of the book that ends but at the beginning I knew right away that Katie and I just weren't going to be great friends, least of all BFFs.To be honest, she really didn't have a major role in this book at all. All that mattered happened to Tomohiro. He was the victim, he was the hero and, for me, the protagonist. Katie just fell in love with him and was wherever he seemed to be. Oh, and she stalked him several times during the book! That is a big NO NO for me. Me don't like stalkers. *shivers*The fact that she influenced Tomohiro's condition (no spoilers here guys!) was actually pretty cool and it kind of saved the book a little for me. That and the ending. Yup, cliffhanger! I just love those, I really do. It makes me want to have the next book in my hands right after I finished reading the one before. Sometimes I even try to see if there are invisible pages missing. 'Cause, you know, that is what you do when a book ends in such a way that your jaw almost hits your fit.Unfortunately, even though the cliffhanger left me wanting more, I don't know if I'll read the next book in the series. I'll have to think about this one a little more to see if I care to read it.*ARC received by the published via NetGalley in exchange of an honest review*Also on my blog Chibi Reader
