I’m doing it, guys. I’M DOING IT. I’m finally reading the third and final book in the Grisha trilogy, Ruin and Rising, by Leigh Bardugo. For those that have read my last several WWW posts, you know this book has been in my “What do you think you’ll read next?” section for…a long time. I don’t know why I didn’t get around to starting it after I finished the second book. My interests just wandered elsewhere. But I finally picked it up at the library again and am going to start it as soon as I finish this post. Well, I might eat some breakfast first…but after that!

The monster’s name was Izumrud, the great worm, and there were those who claimed he had made the tunnels that ran beneath Ravka. Sick with appetite, he ate up silt and gravel, burrowing deeper and deeper into the earth, searching for something to satisfy his hunger, until he’d gone too far and lost himself in the dark.

I am still plugging away at the second book in the Grisha trilogy, Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. I’ve been kind of everywhere with reading recently, and unfortunately it’s taking longer than I thought to get this one read. I think I’ve mentioned before, I actually get quite a bit of reading done at one of my jobs. However, the company is having some legal issues at the moment and has closed down for the time being. Sadly, that means less reading time. And less money…of course.

Despite its name, I loved the war room. The cartographer in me couldn’t resist the old maps wrought in animal hide and embellished in whimsical detail: the gilded lighthouse at Os Kervo, the mountain temples of the Shu, the mermaids that swam at the edges of the seas.

Tonight I’ll be starting the second book in the Grisha trilogy, Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. I really enjoyed the first book and am super looking forward to continuing the trilogy!

The boy and the girl had once dreamed of ships, long ago, before they’d ever seen the True Sea. They were the vessels of stories, magic ships with masts hewn from sweet cedar and sails spun by maidens from thread of pure gold. Their crews were white mice who sang songs and scrubbed the decks with their pink tails.
