Welcome back! We are excited to start another semester and to continue our “What We’re Reading” Blog Series.
“What We’re Reading”gives the Brookens Library staff the opportunity to highlight a variety of books, audio books, or e-books you might find enjoyable. This series will post every week on the “What’s New at Brookens” Blog. The first installment for the new year features Laura Berndt a student worker at Brookens. Learn more about what Laura has been reading:
1.) What are you reading?
I am almost done reading “Shadow and Bone” by Leigh Bardugo
2.) How did you make your selection?
My roommate recommended it to me
3.) Describe the book in 20 words or less using your own words.
A book about a girl in a world where her newfound power can either save or destroy the kingdom.
4.) What did you like? What didn’t you like?
I like the overall story and that it is set in a fictional world, but I also just like the idea of a plain girl who finds out she is much more important than she ever gave herself credit for. There’s lots of action and mystery so that’s always exciting too. One thing that I’m not crazy about in this book are all the weird names given to things in this world, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of.
5.) Who would you recommend should read this?
Young adults, or just anyone! it’s good and there are two more books in the series.
