Book Review: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

I’m going to be completely honest, I don’t really know how to write this review. I’ve had The Bone Season on my radar since it came out in 2013. My mum heard about it on the radio and bought a copy because she thought we might be interested. I never got around to picking it up until February 2019, when I decided to give it a try in anticipation of Priory of the Orange Tree’s release. I didn’t know what to expect from The Bone Season except that it is weird and not every reader’s cup of tea. I can sum up my feelings on this book pretty easily: I have no idea what the hell just happened but I loved it.

Book Review: The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

I had been desperately waiting to get hold of a copy of The Priory of the Orange Tree, and it finally landed in my hands in February. It’s a chunky 800-page fantasy tome that is packed with cool dragons, mighty queens, fierce warriors, and enough court intrigue and conspiracy to warm my heart. I was fully expecting this to be my favourite book of the year, so what did I think of it?
