I bought this book up a while ago and when I went into a book slump after finishing the Infernal devices series, I randomly decided to read The Bone Season ( it was on my floor near my bed and required minimum effort to reach … I’m lazy so what?). It’s a book I heard loads of people talk about but never caught the plot, I can now see why, its intricate and completely different to other books I’ve read. The oxford university graduate created a new world within real settings of London, where she grew up and Oxford, where she studied English. I’m really thrilled that she wrote this while studying and how she was so young when it was published 21. I believe she deserves all the praise for this book even if a few people on goodreads disagree. I thought it was an original creative plot that left me wanting to read more what more.
