Short & Sweet: The Bone Season (Adult)

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

17199504It took a few tries to get into this one, and I wasn't really hooked until about halfway through, but once I became immersed in the world and more familiar with the characters, I was riveted to the page! The world-building is confusing (seriously, there are so many different types of clairvoyants) and it was hard to keep track of who was on what side (especially because there are tons of characters and I kept forgetting who was who — a character list would have been helpful), but I really enjoyed the main characters of Warden and Paige, and the progression of their relationship dynamic. The pacing was slow to start with, but then picked up and really didn't drop off for the 2nd half of the book. Looking forward to continuing with the second in the series.

Oh, and I just discovered a glossary at the back of the book for all of the slang terms. Huh, well, that would have been good to know while I was reading it, lol.


  1. I don't mind a slow start to a book if the prose is good and the story picks up then continues to gain momentum. Interesting about the glossary at the back.

  2. I'm worried about not getting hooked until halfway of the story, Danya. I don't know if I have the patience like you. I still have this one on my tbr because I've heard nothing but great things about it. I guess I'll have to pick it up when I can devote more time to it. Glad you stuck with it and enjoyed it!

  3. Yeah, it took me awhile to get invested into the story because I was so confused at being thrown into this world without knowing anything about it. All the different types of clairvoyant types were overwhelming, especially because there was nothing to tell you what made the different subtypes differ from each other.


I love comments, so post away!
