**Exciting GRISHA news**
Shadow and Bone is receiving a mini makeover in the UK… our new paperback edition (the Indigo edition!) has a gorgeous new look coming on 31 July.
And the best part? Extra material not before available in the UK!
And the other best part? It will be out in shops celebrating Leigh Bardugo’s UK visit in August!
So our burning question is… what do you think of the purple, Grisha Army UK?
1 - this is beautiful
2 - will this be available in Australia? because I want it.
How about you also release it in hardcover. Yes? Yes.
sext: take my glasses and put them down in a safe place before we start making out
This makes me laugh so hard, because one time me and my ex-boyfriend started kissing and he poked himself in the eye with the corner of my glasses. And we couldn’t kiss anymore because I was laughing so much.
life is so hard when you have twenty tv shows to watch

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.
Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry?
My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.
Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money.
While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.
That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating.
I couldn’t hit the reblog button fast enough.
