✨Grishaverse Reread✨

This book was the ending this series deserved. Granted there were a few things I was annoyed about but overall I was left feeling very content with the ending and how everything played out. Similar to the last book it was just a lot of preparing and plotting for this inevitable last fight with the Darkling and then once we got there it was rushed in like the last 50 pages. We are definitely given a lot of answers to questions that have been circulating for the duration of the series and the Darkling and Baghra were at the forefront of most of them. I liked the way we learnt about Baghra’s history and how Allina put two and two together but still ended up being wrong. There was some nice twists that I had forgotten about for the most part but overall the pacing was just a bit off.

Grishaverse Reread

Sooo I said I was going to be rereading the Stormlight Archives so I can finally get to Rhythm of War but I feel like I’m not really in any kind of rush to read it until the 5th book comes out as that will be the finale of the current storyline I believe. So once that books release is announced then I will start my reread. But for right now I kind of want to dive back into the Grishaverse. I haven’t read Rule of Wolves yet simply because I’m had a hard enough time remembering all of the characters for King of Scars and it’s been nearly two years so I have no chance right now. So I want to start with the original Shadow and Bony trilogy and I will just continue on from there until I get to Rule of Wolves and be refreshed and back up to date! I also haven’t watched the TV show yet so I think that will be a nice treat at the end of my reread.
