Currently Reading: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo


Synopsis: Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart.

Thoughts so far: I’m only three chapters in so far, but I’m already liking this book way more than Six of Crows, which had me bored and uninterested by the end of the first chapter! (Please don’t hate me! It just wasn’t my type of book!) Obviously, I can’t judge a book based on the first few chapters, especially since we haven’t even gotten to the fun Grisha magic yet, but I’m really excited to finally dive into this series. You can definitely expect a full review when I’m done reading it! I just can’t believe I’ve had this book on my shelf for ages and haven’t read it yet!

  1. I have to say, I was browsing randomly through the WordPress book-blog tag when I saw your post, and I clicked on it because I absolutely LOVE your blog theme — it’s gorgeous! I’m looking forward to seeing more of your posts!

    On another note, I’ve been wanting to read Shadow and Bone for a while, and your review convinced me to move it up on my TBR. I can’t wait to check it out 😀
