Welcome to my first First Read of 2019! It’s a new year, and I’ve picked up a new trilogy to go exploring in: Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy, beginning with (of course) Daughter of Smoke and Bone. In this post, I am charmed, fascinated and filled with empathetic rage. So, we’re off to a great start! Spoilers follow for chapters 1-7.
In the second half of Alanna: The First Adventure, things are still not what I expected. But this is everything my heart needed. Spoilers follow for chapter 5 through to the end.
In the first part of Alanna: The First Adventure. nothing is what I expected it to be. IT IS ALL SO MUCH BETTER. I was not ready. I am, however, hopelessly hooked. Spoilers follow for chapters 1-4.
