I was inspired to read this book solely based on this picture:

I didn’t know anything about the book except that the cat pictured above was a character, and the Author, Jay Kristoff, contacted the artist, Baby Chick, on Instagram saying he liked her artwork and wanted a copy. This picture is awesome and I was intrigued! I love cats, especially black cats, and I wanted to know who this character was!! So I read the book! Just to figure out who the cat is!
The cat’s name is Mr. Kindly and he is awesome!!! I want to go into more about him but I can’t because I don’t want to spoil anything! But I want him! He would be the best, best friend ever!
All the characters are awesome! Mia is great! She isn’t perfect but that is part of what makes her so believable. She is strong and stubborn and smart! She sticks to her beliefs even when facing difficult situations.
I really want to know more about Cassius!! Urg again I can’t go into more details without spoilers!! But he is so mysterious you can’t help but be drawn to him!
Its not just the characters that made the book great, it was the story line as well! I loved the plot! (Tho I am partial to assassin schools for some reason) It is dark and twisted (duh its about a school for assassin’s) but at the same time its also hopeful and compelling.
Forever ago, I created a poll asking which Audiobook I should read and Nevernight was one of the options. Spasciuti helpfully pointed out that Nevernight has a lot of footnotes and doesn’t translate well to Audiobooks. It was good to know and I agree it would not have worked very well in Audiobook! So if you are going to read this I highly suggest getting a physical book! (I don’t know how well it would work with e-books either because sometimes the footnotes are really long)
Overall this is a great book and I highly recommend it! Here are some more black cat gifs:
Also I have been working on my bookstagram skills and here are some of the ones I liked:
Thats my cat Kaylee, by the way! She is awesome and I love her! Tho it was a pain in the butt to get her to pose with the book for pictures. (There may or may not have been cat nip involved) This is my favorite pic:
I like it cuz Kaylee is all blurry and out of focus which fits really well with the story! The only bad thing is that she is kind of obstructing the cover. She isn’t obstructing the cover in the top right picture but I don’t like her pose as much, so this one is still my favorite!
Update: For some reason the pictures in the collage keep changing their order so if my sentence above doesn’t make sense, just refresh your page until this pic is in the top right:
Have you read Nevernight? Did you like it?
I bought Godsgrave last night and can’t wait to get started!
