INK By Alice Broadway (#1 SKIN BOOKS)

Posted by Ideja B. on March 13, 2018 at 2:05 PM
Although judging a book by its cover isn't always a good idea, it can't be helped when you experience the front cover of this book. It matches the theme of the story ENTIRELY, which allows for the visual progression of the novel. The gold and orange glossy surface is a sight of awe whenever the book is held. It's clear that the cover was thought about carefully. In terms of the contents of the book, it was as fulfilling as the illustrations. Each issue, resolution and character was described to such depth that I could, effortlessly, picture each scene. I especially enjoyed the idea of people's lives being represented as books, with each skin binding each book. The tattooists who regularly mark the townspeople's actions onto their skins are portrayed as hidden people who deserve a lot more recognition then they are getting. However, Leora's admiration towards the inking side of things conveys a secret sense of attachment, and while she broke the boundaries for who could choose what future career, she managed to find herself, and discover who she really was. After researching, I came across Skin Book #2 - Spark, which I EXTREMELY looking forward to reading! There is no doubt that this book will be in my reread section, so I rate this book FOUR STARS (Visit the 'Four Star Books' section under Books, to see the cover of the book, and where to buy it!)
