I Have A Question Regarding Shadow and Bone…

I have a question…I just recently finished reading Shadow and Bone which I wanted to read before watching the show.

My question is does the show follow just the first book, or does it contain spoilers for the entire trilogy?(I know it has some characters from the Six of Crows series). I’m trying to figure out if it’s necessary to read the entire trilogy before watching the show, or not. Since I would rather not be spoiled for the rest of the books?

What are your thoughts?

Shadow and Bone

I have the tv show cover edition because this book is sold out! This is the only edition I could find in stores, and I’m not a fan of this cover…but oh well.

This is all I’ve been seeing and hearing about lately since the show came out. I really want to watch the show, but I also wanted to read the books first so I’m finally reading it. For those who have watched the show, does the show focus on just the first book or the entire trilogy? I’m trying to decide if it’s necessary to read the entire trilogy before watching the show?

Netflix: Shadow and Bone

When I first heard about Shadow and Bone being adapted into a Netflix show, honestly I really didn’t have a reaction. I was happy for the people who are fans of this series(it’s always exciting, and nerve wracking, to see a story you love being brought to life), but I have NOT read the books, so I couldn’t share in that excitement.

Shadow and Bone Adaptation

I recently watched the Announcement teaser, and I don’t know why, but it intrigued me. The teaser didn’t even show anything, but somehow it got me intrigued. Recently they released some photos from the show, and I saw so many people sharing in the excitement it have me FOMO. I have to admit, it makes me want to join in on the excitement. Also I’m just getting more and more interested in this story. So I think it’s time for me to start this series.

Have you guys read this series? Are you excited for the show?

#FridayReads [2]

So this weekend I’ll be reading American Sniper by Chris Kyle. Honestly, this is completely different from anything that I usually read. I rarely read autobiographies, but I saw this one at my thrift store for 50 cents and I couldn’t pass it up. I know a movie was made from this, which I have yet to watch.

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan (โ€œthe devilโ€) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyleโ€™s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

This autobiography caught my attention and so far I’m 30ish pages into it and am quite enjoying it! Have you guys read this book? Have you watched the movie? What are your thoughts?
