2B Tuesday #29

2B Tuesday...Where I highlight a book from my endless to-be-read list. Those books need love too!

Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo
The Grisha, #1
Hardcover, 358 pages
Published June 5th 2012 by Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) 

The Shadow Fold, a swathe of impenetrable darkness, crawling with monsters that feast on human flesh, is slowly destroying the once-great nation of Ravka.
Alina, a pale, lonely orphan, discovers a unique power that thrusts her into the lavish world of the kingdom’s magical elite—the Grisha. Could she be the key to unravelling the dark fabric of the Shadow Fold and setting Ravka free?
The Darkling, a creature of seductive charm and terrifying power, leader of the Grisha. If Alina is to fulfil her destiny, she must discover how to unlock her gift and face up to her dangerous attraction to him.
But what of Mal, Alina’s childhood best friend? As Alina contemplates her dazzling new future, why can’t she ever quite forget him?
Glorious. Epic. Irresistible. Romance.

The only reason I haven’t picked this up is because my TBR shelves (yes multiple) have too many books on them! To be completely honest I sort of judged this book by the cover. I don’t usually read the synopsis I just listen to what other people have to say about it. Everyone I’ve seen talk about this book seems to love it. There seems to be a lot of excitement for the next one coming out! After actually reading the synopsis this doesn’t really sound like a book I would like but I haven’t actually read anything like it. I’m interested to see what I think about it. Hopefully I can get to it soon.

Have you read this book? What are your thoughts on it?
