Title: Indelible

Author: Dawn Metcalf

Series: The Twixt – Book #1

Summary via Goodreads:

Some things are permanent.

Indelible.

And they cannot be changed back.

Joy Malone learns this the night she sees a stranger with all-black eyes across a crowded room—right before the mystery boy tries to cut out her eye. Instead, the wound accidentally marks her as property of Indelible Ink, and this dangerous mistake thrusts Joy into an incomprehensible world—a world of monsters at the window, glowing girls on the doorstep, and a life that will never be the same.

Now, Joy must pretend to be Ink’s chosen one—his helper, his love, his something for the foreseeable future…and failure to be convincing means a painful death for them both. Swept into a world of monsters, illusion, immortal honor and revenge, Joy discovers that sometimes, there are no mistakes.

Somewhere between reality and myth lies…

THE TWIXT

*Beginning:

The music beat hard against Joy’s ribs. She could feel the rhythm in her chest and the bass in her teeth. The Carousel spun slowly, crammed with mirrors and frantic dancers. It was light. It was dark. It was light.

*Page 56:

She’d been stabbed with a knife, weirdos were stalking her and Dad was dating some unknown person named Shelley. Joy  knew Stefan would somehow understand, but if he was busy with some new girlfriend, it might be weeks before he remembered to call.

*Thoughts:

I picked up this book because it sounded interesting. I’m a huge fan of the cover. Its beautiful in person and hopefully the book will be just as good.

What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend?

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice weekend.
