There aren’t many books that I can say have stolen my heart. A book that is so beautifully written that it stays with me for months after I’ve read it. The Bear and the Nightingale is absolutely one of those stories. I have to say this is the best book I read in 2017. I am still gushing over this book. I loved the story and the writing style so much I left a little note in the library copy.
I didn’t realize until I started following Katherine Arden on Twitter that the story was going to be a trilolgy. The day The Girl in the Tower was released I rushed to my local independent bookshop 10 mins before closing and grabbed the last copy on the shelves.
Patience may be a virtue but it isn’t one of mine. However, I have not yet read The Girl in the Tower yet. I am saving it until I finish War and Peace. I want to savor it over a weekend with a lovely slice of cake and tea. I am not going to write a review for The Bear and the Nightingale I am sure you can tell how much I love this book. I will be writing a review of The Girl in the Tower once I have read it.
