Ninth House and I had a bit of a slow start The new world that Bardugo has created might not be set in a fictional fantasy universe, but it features enough new concepts, characters, and settings that it takes some time to take it all in Not only does every character have an alias and maybe even a nickname, so do the buildings at Yale And since all my Yale knowledge is based on that cute little courtyard from Gil Girls, I struggled to figure out where and who and what was going on As soon as I had grasped all of that, though, I was unable to resist the pull of this dark, compelling, murderous book.
I don t know where to start The book was sombre and thrilling Ù Ninth House ↠´ Just realized this is an Adult book I m evenexcited for it US and UK residents can submit their pre order receipts HERE to receive a gorgeous, limited edition print Do you ever just sit at home with approximately 9,999 books feeling like you have nothing to read because that ONE book you re dying to read doesn t come out until October 8th There were always excuses for why girls died.
i am going to review this carefully, for all of you who were too cool or too civilized to run for copies at BEA and have to wait for october to grab a copy me, i regret nothing when i first heard about this book, there was only a little teaser of a synopsis available, and when i finally got my hands on it, i didn t revisit it or read anything printed on the ARC i just dove in blind.
let s just say i was unprepared for what this was i d assumed, from having read all the bardoogs before this, that this would be set in some fantasy realm which roughly correlated to real world locations, but was entirely fresh and new and magical so imagine my surprise to read about this girl kicking it in new haven and eating mamoun s falafel mind blown those of you who are better about reading what a book is about before you hunk do i have a considerable amount of books that i already need to read would i drop quote me on this everything for this if leigh bardugo wrote a 100,000 word essay on the growing strategies of cacti, would i also do the same yes, yes and also yesBy the time Alex managed to get the blood out of her good wool coat, it was too warm to wear it Spring had come on grudgingly pale blue mornings failed to deepen, turning instead to moist, sullen afternoons, and stubborn frost lined the road in high, dirty meringues.
That was in the spring But the trouble had begun on a night in the full dark of winter, when Tara Hutchins died and Alex still thought she might get away with everything
I m a simple man I see Leigh Bardugo I press like.

There were always excuses for why girls diedNinth House is a love letter to living and surviving unspeakable abuse This is a book all about trauma, and PTSD, and healing, in any and every way that you can This is a book for victims, who have felt they will never get the piece of them back that someone forcefully took This is a book for anyone who was willing to do anything to feel empowered after something horrible occurred This is a book about the dark and the light and the in between phases a human can go through to get their voice back.
But this is also a story about a girl named Galaxy Stern, or Alex, who is from LA, but is now across the country and studying at Yale The book continuously switches back and forth from Late Spring to Winter, so we
