Hey Book Nerds, and welcome back for another teaser! If you already follow my blog, you may’ve noticed that I didn’t post yesterday. WHOOPS! I had a post idea that I planned to write up, but I got so into my current read that I just decided to call it a reading day. It’s been a while since I read over 200 pages in one day, but it felt so good! So now, you may be wondering, “What is this fantastic book that you are talking about, Alaina?” Well, let’s get straight into the teaser!
I looked up at the canopy. No matter how much I sometimes wanted it, there was no normal. There never had been. “Normal” and “natural” were the biggest lies we’d ever created. We humans with our little minds. And maybe being normal wouldn’t suit me.

This book is amazing! It is super fast-paced and constantly makes you crave more. The past few fantasy books that I have read this summer were all 4 stars or below. I haven’t read a lot of content recently that makes me want to give it a reread. But, I already know that I am going to be buying the next books. And I know that I will be reading them as soon as I get them. The only problem: the rest of the hardcovers are over $30 EACH!
But,I have fallen in love with Paige’s character. She is strong, stubborn, and knows what she wants. And then we have WARDEN! I have been waiting all summer for a semi-love interest. There really isn’t any love between them, but you can feel it brewing between them!
The year is 2059. Nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London, based at Seven Dials, employed by a man named Jaxon Hall. Her job: to scout for information by breaking into people’s minds. For Paige is a dreamwalker, a clairvoyant and, in the world of Scion, she commits treason simply by breathing.
It is raining the day her life changes for ever. Attacked, drugged and kidnapped, Paige is transported to Oxford – a city kept secret for two hundred years, controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. Paige is assigned to Warden, a Rephaite with mysterious motives. He is her master. Her trainer. Her natural enemy. But if Paige wants to regain her freedom she must allow herself to be nurtured in this prison where she is meant to die.
The Bone Season introduces a compelling heroine and also introduces an extraordinary young writer, with huge ambition and a teeming imagination. Samantha Shannon has created a bold new reality in this riveting debut.
