What to read again:

Ever since Harry Potter I’ve enjoyed re-reading the previous books in a series before the next one comes out. You get to soak up all the nuances and speculate about what’s going to happen next—it just makes the whole experience richer and more fun! What am I going to start re-reading?

The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon

This is a case where the first book was on the fence for me in spots, and the second book was amazing! (You can see my reviews here and here). This is a seven-book series set in a futuristic London where clairvoyants (voyants) are hunted by Scion (the government). Paige is a Dreamwalker, a powerful voyant part of a criminal underworld gang (as most voyants are in London) kidnapped as part of Bone Season XX. She learns that behind Scion is an even more powerful, otherworldly force determined to hunt down and destroy the voyants in organized waves known as Bone Seasons. As you can see from my attempt at a summary, the world-building is complex, and that includes a huge cast of characters and vocabulary. I have to say though, that this is a world that sticks with you and I’m very excited for the next installment!

Originally scheduled for a November release, this was delayed until March 2017. However, these books are bit hefty so I decided to promote this re-read with enough time to get through them both, because I have a feeling you’ll need a sharp memory to jump into book three. If you need some assistance, Recaptains has the first book summarized here but there will be spoilers! Get on board now and re-enter Scion in March!

Note: Bloomsbury decided to repackage this series and designed simpler covers for the remaining books. The design on the left is the regular version. The design on the right that matches the previous covers is a special collector’s edition that was available as a pre-order. Both versions will be released on the same day. Going forward, the publisher will be releasing both versions so that if you want, all the hardcovers can match.
