     Hello fellows!

     This post has appeared a tad bit late, due to my filled schedule but it is finally here as you see it. Obviously, I'm reading Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. A couple days ago, short after I started reading the book, I learned that the movie rights have been claimed (because there happens to be a difference between "claiming movie rights" and "making a movie") for Shadow and Bone by DreamWorks a couple months after the book was published. In 2012, the novel was released in June and the rights were picked up in September, only months after publication date. Of course, this news came around long ago in 2012, and as it is 2015 already, I wouldn't expect the movie anytime soon. View source here.

Title: Shadow and Bone
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Publisher: Henry Holt & Co.
Date Released: June 5, 2012
Number of Pages: 368
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.

Shadow and Bone is the first installment in Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy.

     That's all for my post, and remember: you should be a tree; they have awesome afterlives.
