TBR Tuesday: Shadow and Bone

TBR Tuesday: Showcasing all the books that are currently staring at you from your "Why aren't you reading me?" pile....

On my TBR

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
Fantasy, 368 pages
Expected publication: June 5th 2012 by Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
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.

Alright, so this is a very new addition to my shelves; it's not like it's been staring me down that long.  But all the same - it knows I'm busy right now.  It knows that I have two events to plan and read for, and that it doesn't even come out until June anyway.  And yet it still keeps whispering its siren song in my ear.  I really think I'm going to have to cave and read this like yesterday... I never said I was a paragon of patience, or anything...

So how many of you are planning on reading this one, or have been hearing all the great things I've been hearing?  She lured you in with her song yet?

Oh, and what's lurking in your TBR this week?

  1. This looks awesome! I am going to resist the temptation to go on amazon right now and...yeah I can't go on there anymore I think I should block it from my computer.

    Books that are totally calling to me at the moment are: 'The Lies of Locke Lamora' by Scott Lynch and 'Cinder' by Marissa Meyer. They are just sitting there all pretty and neglected. WHY CAN I NOT READ FASTER!? x


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
