The Bone Season – Samantha Shannon

“This was what my spirit longed to do, to wander in strange lands. It couldn't stand being trapped in one body all the time.

It's time to introduce a new meme! I wanted to change things up a little bit, so I asked my twitter followers to vote: start a new meme, or keep Book Beginnings Fridays? The vote was almost overwhelmingly in favor of Diversity Spotlight Thursday, so we here we are! The goal is to take a… Continue reading Diversity Spotlight Thursday #1
