What I Read This Week!

Its that time again! So lets just get right to it!

Title: Ink (Paper Gods #1) by Amanda Sun
Rating: 3 Stars
From: Netgalley

On the heels of a family tragedy, the last thing Katie Greene wants to do is move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka, Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn’t know the language, she can barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can’t seem to get the hang of taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building.

Then there’s gorgeous but aloof Tomohiro, star of the school’s kendo team. How did he really get the scar on his arm? Katie isn’t prepared for the answer. But when she sees the things he draws start moving, there’s no denying the truth: Tomo has a connection to the ancient gods of Japan, and being near Katie is causing his abilities to spiral out of control. If the wrong people notice, they'll both be targets.

Katie never wanted to move to Japan—now she may not make it out of the country alive.

My Thoughts: Its an interesting story, it just didn't captivate me as much as some previously read books. I didn't hate it, it just didn't grab me. American girl in Japan, being the outcast, bad boy... it has it all. That's about all I have to say about it. I liked it!

Title: Untraceable (The Nature of Grace #1) by S.R. Johannes
Rating: 3 Stars
From: Netgalley

16-year-old Grace has lived in the Smokies all her life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival. 

When her dad goes missing on a routine patrol, Grace refuses to believe he’s dead and fights the town authorities, tribal officials, and nature to find him.

One day, while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from danger by Mo, a hot guy with an intoxicating accent and a secret. As her feelings between him and her ex-boyfriend get muddled, Grace travels deep into the wilderness to escape and find her father. 

Along the way, Grace learns terrible secrets that sever relationships and lives. Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to save everything she loves.

My Thoughts: It is a bit of a slow start but this book is action packed. I didn't want to put it down once I really got into it. The reason I have it rated lower is the beginning, it wasn't until I was about half way through that I was really enjoying it.
