Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Yeah, I’m a bit of a latecomer to the #BardugoObsession but I am totally on the hype train now. Seriously, why did I let this series sit on my TBR shelf for so long?!


WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

OK, so I didn’t “technically” finish this book in the sense that people normally are referring to when they say that they finished a book. For me, it means I read the first part and just didn’t care for it at all so I said I’m done and picked up Shadow and Bone instead. Yeah, my boyfriend absolutely loved this book and wanted me to read it, so I tried, I really tried. Let’s just say he’s not very happy with me because of it. I’m sorry Douglas Adams, but you are a try-hard.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Yes, I liked this book but it didn’t totally blow me away as it did for some people. I might’ve just been having a moment though, because I picked it up immediately after finishing Morning Star. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t over the ending of one of my favorite series ever. Instead of acknowledging I was having a book hangover, I just kept on trucking. Kind of like that time I was wayyyyy hungover from whiskey and decided to drink a massive Bloody Mary. Bad idea. You can find my full review HERE.


WHAT DO YOU WANT TO READ NEXT?

    1. I’m so glad to hear I wasn’t the only one who felt that way about it! Everyone just keeps raving about it and I’m over here like, yeah it was a fun read. Haha!
      I’m seriously loving it right now. I can’t wait to get to Six of Crows! It looks so pretty on my shelf that I catch myself just staring at it sometimes hahaha. I have a feeling it’s going to blow me away!

  1. I’m reading Six of Crows right now. 🙂 I’ve got Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Ruin and Rising sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. I hope you enjoy them! I’ll get to them soon. Honestly, I might have to start after Six of Crows. It’ll give me something to stave off my Leigh Bardugo need while I wait for Crooked Kingdom.

    1. Yeah, I’m usually a bit more varied with what I’m reading. And I honestly tried Hitchhiker’s Guide to mix it up a bit but it just didn’t work for me. My boyfriend said I just don’t get British humor but I told him that was not the problem because I love Father Ted. The problem is that Adams tries way too hard to be silly and was missing the mark.

  2. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy ‘Hitchhiker.’ I thought the series was hilarious and read all of them! I’m on ‘Team Boyfriend.’ 🙂 Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

  3. I’ve actually had a vague notion to read hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy. I remember seeing the tv show many years ago. May not rush to read based on your thoughts.

    Grisha trilogy is great but I thought the second book was the weakest. It is definitely still a good read though.

    1. Oh no, definitely try it for yourself! I’m one of the very few people who didn’t care for it, most people seem to really enjoy it. Maybe it was just a timing thing or something for me.
      I’m loving it so far! I think a few have people have mentioned that about the second book but as long as it ends well, I’m good. I hate it when authors wait and go ruin it with the last book in a series.
