    Meh is all I can muster for this book, great idea and a lot of potential but the execution left a lot to be desired, it didn?t work at least for me , I thought the author could have done a lot more to expand the characters and explore the world she created in this book, instead there...

    This book is super hard for me to rate because it's somewhere between 4 to 5 stars. It has a brilliantly conceived world and the world building is superb (and not something I usually harp on or care about). It's a quiet book, doesn't have a lot of flashy plot twists, but there's just s...

    I was definitely intrigued by this book as soon as I read the summary. It was a fast read -- I read the entire thing over the course of two sessions, which is something I haven't done in awhile. The style of writing is definitely different. I can't describe it, exactly, but it's ver...

    A vibrant creative alternate world with mechanists, alchemists, and scriptologists populating the streets of an alt-Pisa and even stranger worlds beyond (view spoiler)[and in? (hide spoiler)] that. A rich and inventive story; some of the finer magical aspects may be unexplained but th...

    Y'all, This. Book. Is. Bombdiggity. I loved the steampunk twist to 19th century Italy. It was based off of real history and I find it fascinating when authors do that! They kind of make an alternate history if you will. Very unique story plot with great character growth, especially in ...

    I tried, you guys. I really did. Part of me still actually wants to attempt to finish this book because I read so much of it (176 pages) but I can't. If I'm not enjoying it by now, I just don't believe I ever will be. So what went wrong? I just found this book boring, and the action...

    One of my least favorite things in the world is when I read a book that I self-hyped so much in my mind and then the actual product monumentally disappoints. And Ink, Iron, and Glass is the PERFECT example, so I guess it's good for something after all :') What makes it worse is ...

    3.5 stars I enjoyed Ink, Iron, and Glass! It comes off as a bit of a quieter historical fantasy, but it promises nonstop adventure and a cast of delightful characters that work together to pretty much save the world. The setting was pretty extraordinary: we?re looking at the Victo...

    DNF at 40% Sorry guys but I just COULD NOT get into this. I didn't care about the missing mother, the 'mad people', and honestly the whole thing. I'm sorry. So sorry. I just wanted to love this so profoundly but I just found it so 'meh'. Thank you to Netgalley for the chance...

    Ink, Iron, and Glass takes place in an alternate version of the Italian city-states in the mid-late 1800?s. BUT. It also partly takes place in a world called Veldana, a world that is completely made up, written into being by someone known as a scriptologist ? a person that can lite...

    Actual rating: 3.5 stars I really enjoyed this action-packed XIXth century (PLUS IT?S MOSTLY SET IN ITALY, IN TUSCANY NO LESS ?) steampunk book. Admittedly, after reading that blurb, I expected something a little bit different, but this wasn?t bad either. It?s just - we d...

    I had my concerns about this book that I wasn't going to enjoy it because it isn't the usual genre of book I read. This was my first "steampunk" book and I think I might have found another genre I want to get into. I couldn't put this book down and NEED book two right now! I fell in...
