Escaping into My Books

I never know to say in these things. I guess that says something about me. I read a lot, write stories, and like books. I like a good debate. Nothing else is to say. :-)

Currently reading

The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue
Mackenzi Lee

Reading progress update: I've read 148 out of 354 pages.

Ink and Bone: The Great Library - Rachel Caine

This is such an interesting concept so far.

 

A dystopian world where all the books and knowledge in the world is controlled and anyone who even attempts to find another way to do things, that would jeopardize even a small section of the system that keeps books and knowledge in the hands of the few..is craved out and destroyed....no matter how innocent the person's motive. It is a good study in what happens in a world where censorship is the norm. 

 

It started off a bit slow, building up the world and putting all the players in the right places, but at this point everything and everyone is at the point where all the real action is kicking off and you can feel the danger building, and the REAL mystery and story taking flight. Slow...but I am still interested. Helps that like the characters...books are a treasure to me as well.
