Waiting on Wednesday: Ink

Because we all have something we're waiting for.

I looked down at the paper, still touching the tip of my shoe. I reached for it, flipping the page over to look.

Scrawls of ink outlined a drawing of a girl lying on a bench.

A sick feeling started to twist in my stomach, like motion sickness.

And then the girl in the drawing turned her head, and her inky eyes glared straight into mine.

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.

I think whoever marketed this thought that the thing that would lure me in most is the Japanese culture and the super-hot guy.


It's the ink drawing girl and the idea of paper gods and power in ink. Give me amazing world-building or give me death!


  1. Lol yup we love this cover and would read pretty much whatever story was inside.

  2. Ooh, I think I'm adding this to my TBR -- it sounds amazing with the paper gods and all. Woot! Plus, love the cover!

  3. The Japanese culture is bringing me in but the guy means nothing to me. I also adore the cover!

  4. I love reading about other cultures and mythologies and the Japanese is I have yet to read about. Plus drawings coming alive is just plain cool.

    Check out my WoW!

  5. The whole paper gods and power in ink is SO intriguing to me - I have this one on my radar.
