Shadow And Bone

I often read books that I've heard people talk about around the blogosphere or on Twitter. Sometimes, the premise of these books doesn't sound all that interesting to me but I give them a try anyway because I've heard how good they are.

That's exactly what happened with Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I really had no clue what it was about. Reading the jacket flap, it didn't exactly get me raring to dive into the book. One chapter in and I didn't want to stop reading. I love that!

Anyway, here's my teaser from Shadow and Bone:

"So I'm the Darkling's prisoner?"
"You're under his protection."
"What's the difference?"
Ivan's expression was unreadable. "Pray you never find out." (page 55)

And now I want to ignore all my house cleaning and just go read.
