Going into this book, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. From the title, I’d gathered that the book revolved mostly around Nikolai Lantsov. We’d last left him in Ruin and Rising as becoming the king, and in Crooked Kingdom we saw Sturmhond come back to life with his small appearance, however, this was a completely new story with a character that I absolutely adore.

Where do I even start? I think this duology has become one of my favorite series ever. I connected with each of these characters so thoroughly and I felt every emotion with them. I’m currently crying over a few of these characters and I can’t believe it’s over.
This book was amazing. I honestly think it’s one of my new favorites. After finishing the Shadow and Bone trilogy, I was definitely curious to see how this spin-off duology would do, especially since I loved the trilogy so much.
Alright, it’s finally time to talk about Shadow and Bone. This adaptation has been one of the most exciting things I’ve had in months and with the pandemic, I’m pretty sure everyone is just as obsessed as I am.
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo was a complete rollercoaster. I have to admit that I didn’t know what to expect going into this book, however, Bardugo’s Grishaverse had me hooked so I did expect myself to enjoy this one as well.
Okay, where do I even start? This was a complete roller coaster of a book and I honestly don’t know how to feel. Ruin and Rising is definitely my favorite of the three books in this series and I think it wraps everything up so well, although I’m definitely intrigued to read more stories taking place in this universe.
What a complete and utter roller coaster. I highly recommend reading this book in one sitting and getting emotionally attached to all the characters just to go through the book and its unreasonable range of emotional distress. Just kidding, it will probably hurt like it’s killing me right now.
Okay, so this has been on my TBR list ever since I heard about it and I was pleasantly surprised. I’ve heard a ton of mixed reviews when it comes to this book so I was excited to see what my take on the story was. Leigh Bardugo is a generally new author to me, I haven’t read anything by her before, however, with the upcoming television show that’s airing on April 23rd, I couldn’t wait to launch into this series.
Since I spent most of my reading last week for reviews and ARCs, I figured I’d come up with a TBR of books that I’ve been really wanting to read for a while.
