Reverse Thursday: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

 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)



What I picked this week?
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Hardcover358 pages
Published June 5th 2012 by Henry Holt and Company
Outline:
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 chose this?
This is one of those books that everyone seemed to love, and I have yet to even start it. It even has a spin off series that I own the first book to that as well. I also have been to a book signing of hers. I've done pretty much everything but read the books from Leigh Bardugo. I think sometime this year I will get on that.

Books in series
Siege and Storm 
Ruin and Rising


Companion Novels
Six of Crows
Crooked Kingdom

Have you read any of these? What did you think? Should I move them up on my list?
