Nevernight
Nevernight | Jay Kristoff
In a world where the suns almost never set, a woman gains entry to a school of infamous assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers that destroyed her family. Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father's failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she wanders a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and its thugs. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the hearth of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined. Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic-the Red Church. Deadly trials await her within the Church's halls: blades and poisons, treachery and death. If she survives to initiation, she'll be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and be one step closer to the only thing she desires. Revenge. Nevernight will come on the heels of Kristoff's latest YA book, a collaboration with Amie Kaufman from Knopf Books for Young Readers, Illuminae. Knopf is planning a major publicity blitz and featuring Illuminae as its lead title for Fall, on sale October 20th. The marketing and publicity campaign include a multi-city USA tour in the fall, major outreach at consumer and industry events, a national paid advertising campaign, and extensive publicity outreach.

“This place gives much, but it takes much more.”
Stripping away the empathy. The pity. Piece by piece. Death by death.
“And what will be left in the end?”
Mia looked about the Sky Altar. The faces. The bloodstains. The shadows.
“Blades” she realized.
“Blades.”

3. Mumbai has nothing called fall, it's just rains, summer and a lil bit of coolness in the name of winter here 😑

Beginning November with this series, I've literally heard so many people raving over it, I think I'm ready🤩
Also, I think I'll read Illuminae series next, so this month is dedicated to completing series of books.
Anyone who read either, did you guys enjoy these books?

InBooksILive The Nevernight Chronicles is one of my favorite series! 2w
ShelfRighteous @InBooksILive I have started and it looks promising🤩 2w

You know you are crazy when you #Cherish your books so much that you avoid reading them for weeks, months, years even.

There are a lot of books on my shelves that I want to read, but I don't want to crease the spines. 🙈

#MOvember @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Hahaha!! You might need to buy those special books in a kindle version so u can finally read them without ruining any spine!!! 2w
julesG @Cinfhen I've done that with some books. 🙈 Don't tell anyone. 2w
Hooked_on_books For me, I wait to read them because I either want to continue the anticipation or “get my money‘s worth” by having them longer. I know. It makes no sense. 2w

100 pages in and I had to bail. I couldn‘t get past the copious amount of footnotes. They were entertaining but I really felt like they distracted me from the story. I also had a hard time caring about the characters. The world building was awesome, but unfortunately it wasn‘t enough to hold me.

I started to actually sit down and read Nevernight yesterday. At first I started it then put it down, but I am determined. I believe I'm one Chapt 3 and there is already so much happening! Oh my word, just going through the first chapters I am already on a rollercoaster. With the third book out now I am hearing a lot about the series. So I will keep with it and hope I start liking it more.

The footnotes are difficult to follow at times and not miss the asterisks, but I love this particular one on languages. The more I read the more I love Jay Kristoff‘s writing.

Re- reading in preparation for the release of the final book in the trilogy this week. I still love it as much as the first time I read it. To quote Jay Kristoff "there is blood, shit, smut and swearing"

As much as I don‘t like marking up book, along with my little cat tabs, I‘ve started highlighting my favorite parts and lines so far. In my defense of doing this (for my own mind) I‘m planning on ordering the other cover of this book to match the ones I‘ve already got on order.

The story/writing wasn't bad, but neither did it grab me. Maybe my expectations were too high. Might pick up the 2nd book if I come across it, might not.

I usually never have a set TBR list for any given month, but August has a schedule (which was already thrown off a few days because I had to read the last #LMPBC book). Anyway, I‘ve started this baby so I can read the first two before Darkdawn releases in September. I also am planning a re-read of the Three Dark Crowns series. Let‘s see how this month goes!

A fantasy with great character development&story line,Another kickass female but in this story a little darker then others I have read.
I am not sure if this is considered YA,it probably is because the characters are 14-16 definitely trigger warnings for violence and sex.Honestly I really enjoyed it,but I don‘t always think some of the sex and violence is necessary for YA 🤷🏼‍♀️

I can't believe it's already the last check in for #bfcr2 🙀 This rd flew by! My fitness tracker died earlier this wk so I've been manually tracking my miles. I managed to hit my 12 mile goal by tracking each walk/workout, but that means I don't have a total miles/steps count for the wk. Oh well! I hit my goal, that's the important part!

This is the slowest I‘ve read a book in a very long time—years, probably—which isn‘t usually at all indicative of how much or little I‘m enjoying what I‘m reading, but....

Nevernight is damn dense, which makes for slow going to begin with, and I want to absorb every little bit of text because it‘s *absurdly* good.

4/5🌟
It took me a long time to read this book but I don't regret it. It was so good. I can't wait to read the sequel. I heard so many great things about it.
The story is really unique. The footnote takes a time to get use to but after a while you can't wait to read them.

I‘ve had this novel for the past three years, and it‘s managed to languish in my to-be-read stack from hell for the entirety of them.

After hearing good things about Nevernight, however, and realizing Jay Kristoff is one of the authors of both the Illuminae Files and the Aurora Cycle, it was bumped far up my TBR list, and as of today, my books are finally unpacked.

I grabbed it immediately, obviously, and have plans to start it sometime tonight.

I haven't checked in for awhile, but I'm at about 22 and 1/2 hrs so 24 hrs is starting to look real! I've finished 3 books, I'm about 1/2 through HP and the Order of the Phoenix with my boys, and I'm about 1/2 through Nevernight. I'm loving this book, but it reads very slow. I'm hoping I can get it done by midnight.

I can barely breathe right now.

This book is stunning. It is rich, it is dark, it is gory, and it is sexy. Holy crap this was everything I wanted it to be and more. It really exceeded my expectations (even though it took me over a week to finish).

I cannot wait to read the next book.

This was so bloody and graphic but it was also somehow beautiful. I laughed a lot, loved the characters, the world was so well fleshed out! It was just superbly written! 🖤

Content warnings though: There are explicit sex scenes and very graphic violence.

8/10 💫

Side note: For some reason I was under the impression Mia was gay, she's not. (Maybe bi but unconfirmed in this book)

Shley9225 She‘s bi. I guess it‘s confirmed in the next book. (Idk I haven‘t actually read the series just know) 4mo
