Legendborn by Tracy Deonn was a book club book I was supposed to read back in December, and never got around to reading. Then I kept putting it off because I was afraid it wouldn’t live up to the expectations for the book I had in my head after hearing a bunch of people saying how amazing it was. Especially after seeing it was similar in some regards to Shadowhunters. Which is one of my favorite universes. But I decided to finally give Legendborn a try after running a poll in a few places on what to read next. The vote was split between two books in the end, so the other one I’ll read next. But first, Legendborn.
I’ll be honest I have never read this book series as I somehow missed it in middle school/high school, but it’s on my TBR list. And with the TV Show adaptation coming to Disney + I’m really need to get to these books. I have seen the two movie adaptations, which I didn’t think were the worst (can’t compare it to the books to know if it was actually bad) but they also weren’t the best. I was tagged by Sarah to do this tagged created by May from Forever and Everly.
When I was a little kid, it was hard press to get me to pick up a book. I couldn’t spell or understand most of the words even though I liked the concept of books. This for the longest time turned me off from books, so I can’t say any books when I was younger had any real impact on me. Though that all changed roughly in sixth or seventh grade when I found a series I couldn’t put down. Since that time period, there have been numerous books that I read without ever wanting to put the books down. So, I thought I would write about some of those series especially the ones that I’ve read countless times.
