I had seen Leigh Bardugo’s books around a lot in the blogosphere, but after reading the description, I wasn’t sure it was for me. However, I went to a Fierce Reads signing and decided to buy books by all the authors. Then I agreed to do a buddy read on Goodreads. I am SO glad that I changed my mind ...

Original Review here Veronica Roth, author of Divergent is quoted on the cover of Shadow and Bone saying: "Unlike anything I've ever read" which is both true and really, really not. Shadow and Bone has tropes you'd find in any YA novel. Insecure female protagonist? Check. Discovers she has hi...

**No spoilers!!JUNE 2013 reread: ★★★★★Just as good this time around. My taste has changed drastically in the last year and a half and yet, my initial impression of Shadow and Bone has held up. If I had to point out a negative that I didn't notice or mind the first time around, it'd be Alina's obsess...

This book was good, but not great. I think all the hype kind of killed it for me. That being said, I still enjoyed it. It was unique and full of interesting Russian influences. I like Alina for the most part. I didn't like the Darkling, though. I just don't go for "bad boys". Full review to come...
