For some unknown reason that really quite baffles me, romances are found in pretty much every single book. If you find one that doesn’t contain a romance, then shout it to the heavens because that’s a rare occurrence.
While we might not find it realistic for every story to have a romance, the majority of us can’t help but love them.
I’m pretty sure everyone has been fawning over photos of this book on twitter and instagram. I can’t blame them – 1. because I’m part of that crowd and 2. because this book has such a stunning cover.
But I was surprisingly sent an early copy of this book, so I have the pleasure of telling you guys whether this book is as gorgeous on the inside as it is on the outside. (Hint: look at the title of the post. Pretty big spoiler for the review there)
With the wait for The Song Rising – the 3rd book in this series – being so long, I knew I needed to reread this book and the second one. Admittedly, I should have started my rereads sooner, since I still need to read the 2nd book and the 3rd book is now released. But still. Here we are at last.
Let’s dive into The Bone Season!
Title: The Bone Season
Author: Samantha Shannon
Series Status: The 1st book in the Bone Season series

Number of Pages: 560 (this edition includes a novella)
And while I don’t make that huge a fuss about my own birthday, it does mean I was treated to some new books, and that alone is exciting for me!
Like with my December Book Haul, my main version of this haul is actually on my booktube channel, since it’s a lot easier to explain which were gifts/which I got before my birthday, along with why I’m interested in them. So the video will be down below, but underneath the books and synopsis’ will be listed for anyone who doesn’t have enough time (or simply don’t want) to watch the video.
My first, proper nonfiction book of this year. And hopefully not my last.
I didn’t know how this was going to go. I don’t read nonfiction – why would I do that when I can read about magic and faeries and dragons in fantasy books? Buuuuut my love for history is gently drawing me into nonfiction, so here we are today.
Logic dictates that this post should have gone up around new year. Or at least some time in January. A new year, what better way to bring it in than look at all the book you’re excited for?
Well, this post isn’t logical. In January, I could barely think of any books I’m anticipating. I lost complete track of when each book is being released, so it took some time to gather everything up. But recently, I added a “waiting on…” page in my bullet journal, listing all the books I’m waiting for this year. And so, here at last, are the books I’m waiting for!
This will be split into two sections: The books that are new, shiny releases, and the books that are already out, but I’m waiting for a specific edition.
