Caraval was one of the biggest releases of 2017. It was the book everyone was talking about for months! Fully caught up in the hype surrounding that book, I read Caraval and was actually pretty disappointed -- I even listed it as one of my most disappointing books of 2017. However, I fully acknowledge that the hype was probably the contributing factor to my unenjoyment. When Legendary was released, I was determined to read it early and beat the hype.
Anyone who has spent time on this blog knows that I am an absolute sucker for a gorgeous cover. I’ll always pick up a beautifully designed book, and the cover will sway me to purchase a book about 80% of the time.
Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek posted this tag and I really liked their answers! I love stats and things like this so I thought I'd give it a go.
There was so much hype surrounding this book's release. From its stunning cover to the fantastical story, everyone wanted it. I found out about Caraval through social media -- you couldn't throw a figurative rock on Instagram without seeing a photo of its gorgeous cover -- and decided to pick it up.
