(((screaming)))

First, a Wonder Woman-centric superhero book.
Now, a contemporary mystery about secret societies.

THIS WOMAN WILL BE THE END OF ME AND I COULDN'T BE ANY HAPPIER.

It's fine. I'm fine. Ignore me. I'm not fine. I'm having a heart attack but I'm fine. I'm just school girlin' over here.

I CANNOT BE MORE EXCITED ABOUT THIS.

"Darlington liked to say that dealing with ghosts was like riding the subway: Do not make eye contact. Do not smile. Do not engage. Otherwise, you never know what might follow you home."

Ever since I saw THE SKULLS movie with Paul Walker and Joshua Jackson, I was so intrigued by secret societies. This is going to be epic!

So so glad that Bardugo is trying something different! I mean, I need a book about Nikolai, I WANT it, but I also want to see what she can do other than that *.*

Leigh Bardugo writing a new book!!


Leigh Bardugo + Criminals + Hidden Societies = Awesome! It is a recipe that simply cannot fail. After the epic,life changing thing that was Six of Crows, this woman can do no wrong.

I'll just wait here then.

I want to see if I will like Bardugo's books if I don't have to deal with all the Grisha/messed up Russian words/culture/names embarrassment.

The plot is so interesting and thrilling, I mean secret societies and sinister occult activies, sing me up!
I am a little sad she is not doing more Grisha books (I was waiting for a Nikolai one *coughs*), but its also a great opportunity to see her doing new stuff like contemporary setting.
