It's Monday, What Am I Reading?

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)Title: Shadow and Bone.
Author: Leigh Bardugo.

"The Shadow Fold, a swathe of impenetrable darkness, crawling with monsters that feast on human flesh, is slowly destroying the once-great nation of Ravka.

Alina, a pale, lonely orphan, discovers a unique power that thrusts her into the lavish world of the kingdom’s magical elite—the Grisha. Could she be the key to unravelling the dark fabric of the Shadow Fold and setting Ravka free?

The Darkling, a creature of seductive charm and terrifying power, leader of the Grisha. If Alina is to fulfill her destiny, she must discover how to unlock her gift and face up to her dangerous attraction to him.

But what of Mal, Alina’s childhood best friend? As Alina contemplates her dazzling new future, why can’t she ever quite forget him?

Glorious. Epic. Irresistible. Romance."

My Thoughts So Far:

I've heard such good things about Shadow and Bone, and decided to pick up...a LONG time ago. For some reason I just haven't been able to fit it into my reading schedule. But this month Shadow and Bone is Burn Bright's Book Club monthly read! I'm almost half way through, and just barely started it yesterday! I absolutely LOVE the main character; she's totally kick BUTT!

I'm dying to see how things turn out, and to EVEN get started on the second book!

Have you read this one? What did you think about it?


  1. I love this one too!! It really confused me at first though....the whole The Fold thing?? I still don't have a very clear visual of what that is exactly, but the characters?!! AHHHHH the characters! I think Alina is 100% awesome.

    1. I completely agree with your comment. I'm a little confused about what the fold looks like, but I just imagine it being a river running through a mountain range...but maybe I'm wrong!


  2. I WANT TO READ THIS BOOK SO BADLY! My library doesn't have it and it's literally torture.

    1. HOW CAN YOUR LIBRARY NOT HAVE IT? That's just crazy-ness! I say complain to them! Send them a strongly worded email! Haha, sorry to hear that! I hope you get the chance to pick it up soon!



I love hearing what you guys have to say, so don't be shy and leave a comment!
