Hi! Remember me? I’m still alive. Ish. I know it’s not Wednesday, and I’m definitely not getting back into blogging anytime soon, but here’s a wallpaper I found on my laptop. I made this after meeting Leigh Bardugo in Rotterdam last year with Ellis (which was the best) and I actually quite like it, so I decided to share it with you. And even though I haven’t even touched a book in at least six months, I am excited to see where this series will take us. Nina Zenik for queen.
Also, since I apparently never posted my full review of the book, here are some of my favorite quotes:
Kaz leaned back. “What’s the easiest way to steal a man’s wallet?”
“Knife to the throat?” asked Inej.
“Gun to the back?” said Jesper.
“Poison in his cup?” suggested Nina.
“You’re all horrible,” said Matthias.
“It’s not natural for women to fight.”
“It’s not natural for someone to be as stupid as he is tall, and yet there you stand.”
“Nina is everything you say. It’s too much.”
“Mmm,” Inej murmured, taking a sip from her mug. “Maybe you’re just not enough.”
“I’d rather face a thousand honest men with swords than one of those deceitful witches with unnatural powers.”
And when you arrive with your repeating rifles and your tanks, when you set upon children and helpless villages, should we not use the weapons we possess? Nina bit down hard on her inner cheek.
“I’m not sure if it was the right thing to do. I’ll become one more Grisha horror story for them to tell their children.”
“Behave or Nina Zenik will get you?”
Nina considered. “Well, I do like the sound of that.”
