Waiting on Wednesday: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

For those of you who don't know "Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to let others know which book you are anticipating and can't wait til it comes out to read it.

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha Trilogy, #1)


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.

Why I am Waiting?

I know this book came out yesterday but with my TBR list being so long I am still waiting for this one. I have heard so many great things about this book. I can't wait to read it. I just posted the book trailer last thursday and the synopsis and trailer makes me want to read this one even more. Really can't wait to get my hands on this one.

  11. Awesome! I've been pining for this for weeks or eve months now and I can finally order it now - so excited to get started on it!

  12. I finished reading this a few weeks ago. The first part of the novel didn't blow me away. I guess it's so hyped up I was expecting a lot more. I hung in there, though, and it got a lot better after the battle scene. That's about 20% of the way in, I think.
