Who else has been so excited about Netflix’s series Shadow and Bone, which is based on the Shadow and Bone trilogy by Leigh Bardudo? It was such joy to watch the series, which was well made and had excellent diverse cast, that I along with many others decided to read the trilogy as quickly as possible. I think I read the three books in just over a week. 🙂
The thought filled me with grief, grief for the dreams we’d shared, for the love I’d felt, for the hopeful girl I would never be again.
It’s been a while since I’ve immersed myself in some YA fantasy. The trilogy had ups and downs, some disappointments too, but it was a fun journey to just read these three books non-stop and feel the excitement of “I just want to know how it all ends”.
Hello May! April flew by and I read some very entertaining books, but have been distracted from writing about those by the Grishaverse books by Leigh Bardugo! But more about those later. 😀 This time I’ll use my time to write about our latest bookclub pick: Her Last Flight by Beatriz Williams.
Interestingly we were voting for a mystery book to read from different subgenres and Her Last Flight got picked. Not the most traditional mystery book with murders and detectives, but a fascinating historical book with a mystery at the center. The book is about two (fictional) famous aviators and the story behind their disappearance.
This was my suggestion for the bookclub voting, so I knew I’d likely enjoy reading this historical romance/mystery. Hopefully the others enjoyed it too! We shall see in the next bookclub meeting. 🙂
