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.

So I love reading books that are part of a series, but like a lot of readers, I don’t always keep up with or finish as many as I would like! Last year I read 25 standalones, out of a total of 105 books, and similarly this year 70% of the books I’ve read so far have been part of a series. When I saw Berls and Michelle were hosting a challenge to finish a series in a month, I just knew I wanted to join in! I’ve picked Amanda Sun’s Paper Gods series, because I loved Ink when I first read it, but have never got around to reading the second or third books. I’ve got all three lined up on my kindle ready to go now!
