📚 I first read SHADOW AND BONE 5 years ago, on a hammock at the beach, when I was 7 months pregnant. I was too impatient to do a re-read before the show, but I hadn’t read the other Grishaverse books so I refreshed my memory with the Wikipedia plot summary and powered through SIEGE AND STORM, RUIN AND RISING, and SIX OF CROWS just in time for the show. I’m reading CROOKED KINGDOM in a more leisurely fashion.
Alina’s connection with Morozova’s stag really resonates with me because my last name is Yiddish for stag. What’s a bookish connection to your name?

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
