Feature Fun Friday - Leigh Bardugo is AWESOME.

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): Jord Och Himmel (Heaven And Earth) by Ale Moller.

DUDE. You do not know how excited I am to show you these videos. Yes, I say multiple because there is no way I'm stopping at one. And it is finally snowing outside so I can *finally* release this tot he world! The first is an introductory video of sorts to her book Shadow and Bone (called The Gathering Dark in the UK). The second is one where she reads an excerpt from a quite intense scene. You'll want to stay for the whole thing. Leigh Bardugo is a fantastic narrator of her own work, something that can be extremely challenging for many authors. Her control and pitch remind me of Neil Gaiman's readings more than a little. So go ahead and listen. You are in for a treat. Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!

omgosh, she's so good! I know exactly what part she's reading and it was cool to hear her add the inflection in her characters' voices. Like whoa :D
