One of my pet peeves is when a certain book is described as 'the new whatever the latest craze happens to be'. So when I saw The Bone Season hyped as "The Harry Potter/Hunger Games fix you've been craving.", I threw up in my mouth a little and mentally moved the book to my 'do not touch even with a ten foot bargepole' list.
But it was a kindle daily deal, and I'm a sucker for futuristic dystopian sci-fi, so I thought I'd give it a whirl and added it to last year's Candy Bowl reserve list. It was added to the Bowl this year and I'm interested to find out if it can live up to the hype.
