Re-read: Shadow and Bone (The Grisha Trilogy #1) – Leigh Bardugo

This was quite the interesting re-read for me… I think this was the first re-read in which I had two totally different expectations going into it: When I first picked up SHADOW AND BONE almost two years ago (!!!), I was not a fantasy reader. I think I had read Graceling first and that was about […]

Fan Art: Game of Thrones Sigils for Leigh Bardugo’s The Grisha Trilogy

A couple weeks ago, Alyssa was reading SHADOW AND BONE for the first time so naturally, we got in a grand discussion about it. We looked up all of the Grisha powers and decided which ones we would be (I’m a Squaller, in case you were wondering). I was looking at Leigh Bardugo’s website with […]

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha Trilogy #1) – Leigh Bardugo

Once again I find myself singing the praises of high fantasy!

Ruin and Rising (Grisha Trilogy #3) – Leigh Bardugo

Re-Read Review: Siege and Storm (Grisha Trilogy #2) – Leigh Bardugo

SIEGE AND STORM was an interesting re-read but ultimately not as exciting as the first time around – don’t get me wrong, it was still amazing, but I was in total awe when I first read this book over a year ago. (WOW, over a year!?) It was really fun being able to discover everything […]
