Reverse Thursday: Graceling by Kristin Cashore

 Reverse Thursday is a feature/MeMe that I think I came up with. I haven't seen anything like it around. If there is I'm sorry just let me know, and I can give credit where due. :)
What is Reverse Thursday you ask?
Well I started thinking that we give so much love to those books that we are waiting on that aren't released yet that maybe we forget those that have been out for awhile. I know I'm totally horrible about this.That's why so many older books go unread by me. So to fix that problem Reverse Thursday was born. It's kind of like a TBT (Throwback Thursday for books)
    Here are a few little guidelines These are not 100% necessary, but it's something to guide you. :)

    -Pick a past book you've been meaning to read and were excited about when it first came out
    -Pick a book that's at least 2-3 years old if not older (Ex: Since it's 2015 pick a book 2013 and older)
    - If you comment on the persons post let them know if you've read it or not, and if you reviewed it leave a link.
    -If you haven't read it do you want to also? This is really about commenting more and mingling with fellow book lovers. Branching out on comments. I know I'm guilty of not leaving a meaningful comment, and I want to get better. :)
    -When picking a book: you can explain why you wanted to read it to begin with, why you waited to read it. Talk about the cover, or whatever. lol. Make it fun. Reverse Thursday is all about showing our love for those older books that have been sitting on the back burner.




This week I choose Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Hardcover471 pages
Published October 1st 2008 by Harcourt
Outline:

Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight - she's a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king's thug.When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change. She never expects to become Po's friend. She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace - or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away...


Why I chose it
I've heard so many good things about this book and series that I really do want to give it a try. Plus, I have all three books sitting on my shelf so I really have no excuse not to just binge read them. I haven't read many fantasy books in the YA genre. I guess it's really not my thing, but if I could the right book you never know. What do you all think would this help me get in fantasy zone?
