The Girl of Ink and Stars is one of those rare treasures that is as gorgeous on the inside as it is on the outside. After initially eyeing this up as a cover buy and then hearing nothing but incredible things about this book I finally jumped straight in and I loved every second.
This book is absolutely gorgeous from beginning to end. Set in a beautifully imagined parallel world, The Girl of Ink and Stars is Isa’s tale. She is such a strong and fierce character and I’m sure that she will be an ins ...more
I was supposed to have an adventure. I was expected to wander the island, read myths but all I did was yawn and was at the verge of breaking my head to control my sleep.

Dočteno, knihu jsem zhltala za dva večery a nemohla jsem se od ní odtrhnout. Já prostě miluju Middle-grade dobrodružství, tady navíc byl místní folklór, mytologie, trochu nedpřirozeno, ty španělská jména, ostrov, z velké části neprobádaný.

I really loved this book and wish I had read it as a child! It was so fun and imaginative and emotional but not emotionally manipulative. Highly recommended for readers of all ages who love a good adventure story.
A very decent middle-grade fantasy about friendship, courage and the importance of finding your way.
Okay to start this book is BEAUTIFUL. The cover is gorgeous and the pages on the inside are all decorated with illustrations of maps and ships. I loved all the characters and the setting, which is quite reminiscent of Philip Pullman's alternate earth, and the plot whilst fairly standard out of context flows naturally and actually comes to a bittersweet and moving ending that I genuinely didn't see coming from a children's book.
None of the characters are white in this, instead all are either mix ...more
