Only Nikolai Could Live Up to His Hype: King of Scars

King of Scars

King of Scars

By: Leigh Bardugo

Grade: A

King of Scars was in my top three most anticipated books of 2019 and it didn’t let me down! Though that ending…

Just a warning there are spoilers in here for the Shadow and Bone trilogy and for Six of Crows (especially in terms of fatalities in those books.) So if you were planning on reading them and don’t want to be spoiled don’t read this.

I also think you probably should read, at least the Shadow and Bone books, if you want to to get the full feeling of King of Scars.

You are Lost: A January Sum-Up

After years of being generally perfect early in December WordPress started giving me trouble mainly with leaving Likes but occasionally with comments. It’s been really all over the place and I haven’t had a great deal of time to get a handle on that. But then the other night I was dreaming and I was looking at all the like icons on someones blog…

Even my dreams are fucking with me this month.

So I thought I’d do some recommendations for those of us who aren’t watching the Super Bowl but who are stuck where everyone else is- or just recommendations period for a Winter Sunday. Then it sort of turned into a Super Bowl themed tag and includes books, movies, shows.

The whole nine years… which is a football thing right? Or golf? I don’t remember.

Shadow and Bone

I finish the whole of the Shadow and Bone series this month! I didn’t love it but I am really excited about a Netflix series to come. Holy crap. Nikolai and the Darkling are going to get cast…

And I’m going to realize how wrong my head canon was because I always age people up but that’s a story for another time. This is about what did I learnt from my journey in the Grisha-verse.

2019 Books I’m Longing to Get My Hands On…

The Testaments

The New Year is coming which does give me a great excuse to do the one thing I love almost as much as reading. Make endless amounts of lists. Starting naturally with all the books I want to read in 2019.

Amazingly enough I narrowed it down to the 10 I’m most super-excited for!

Books & Cookies! And One Late Tag…

jack-jack loves cookies

Once upon a time wonderful blogger Kelly from Just Another Book in the Wall tagged me in the Cookie Book tag and I immediately thought… cookies and books! Yes! Then I was cursed with procrastination, forgetfulness and a general ability to lose my Blogging Notebook like everywhere and now eons later (at least months) I’m doing the tag!

I’m also a (cheap) cookie connoisseur so am including below the 5 greatest cookies of all time.
