I mainly bought this book because I knew I was going to be meeting Leigh Bardugo soon (which I did, yesterday). But I also had wanted to read it for a while, especially considering the hype surrounding it.
However, when I finished it, I felt like I was left sourly disappointed. I think I must've set the bar too high before reading it because I didn't think it was amazing or anything similar to all the reviews I'd been hearing.
I thought it was a pretty decent read, the plot was interesting and very unique and I absolutely loved all of the diverse characters (especially Nina and Inej).
Overall, I'm giving this read 3.5 stars out of 5. I will definitely read the sequel but as of now, I'm in no hurry to get my hands on it.
