Happy humpday to all and welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday. This week I am eagerly waiting for The Lives of Saints by Leigh Bardugo.
Last week while planning on buying some new books on Amazon I came across this one. Sadly, 17 euro was a bit too expensive especially since the book is only 119 pages, not to mention I already had like 7-8 books that I wanted to buy. But it is on my OMG need to buy shelf on Goodreads and I am very eager to get this book, because the Grishaverse is one of my favourite series and I have loved each book. And this one definitely needs to go on the shelves with his friends.
Amazon allows us a glimpse into the book and OH boy it is so pretty and fancy. It features several stories of saints from the Grishaverse along with illustrations of saints. I am curious to see which saints are mentioned and if we learn of new saints. Though, given it has been a few years since I last read the series, I wonder if I would recognise any new ones. 😛
And the cover is also so pretty, it fits so well with what the book is about.
Dive into the epic world of international bestselling author Leigh Bardugo with this beautifully illustrated replica of The Lives of Saints, the Istorii Sankt’ya, featuring tales of saints drawn from the beloved novels and beyond. Out of the pages of the Shadow and Bone trilogy, from the hands of Alina Starkov to yours, the Istorii Sankt’ya is a magical keepsake from the Grishaverse.
These tales include miracles and martyrdoms from familiar saints like Sankta Lizabeta of the Roses and Sankt Ilya in Chains, to the strange and obscure stories of Sankta Ursula, Sankta Maradi, and the Starless Saint.
This beautiful collection includes stunning full-color illustrations of each story.
