Title: The Bear and the Nightingale Author: Katherine Arden Type: YA Fantasy Length: 368 pages Published by: Del Ray Pub date: Jan 10, 2017 Format: Paperback Source: Fun story: I thought I had this one on my Kindle, so I requested it’s sequel from Netgalley. When my request was accepted, I thought, “Great, better start reading, then.” ONLY I DIDN’T ACTUALLY HAVE IT ON MY KINDLE! So, I kind of panic-bought a copy from Barnes and Noble, even thought the sequel doesn’t come out till December.
Let me just take a moment to finish squealing over how beautiful that cover is!!!

When I read the synopsis for Courtney Peppernell’s The Road Between, I couldn’t wait to start reading it (plus I love that cover!!).
