1. Summarized Thoughts
My time reading Shadow and Bone was very enjoyable. All the questions hanging in my head were answered as the story went along, and since this story was very fast-paced and action-packed, there wasn't a single moment where I felt like I was having information poured down on me (in other words, great world-building). The characters were well-structured and developed throughout and overall, this book was a very nice read.
Note: Sorry for such a short review! Hopefully, once I finish the second book in the series, it won't be 10PM on a school night. :)
