The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline

There’s not a lot for me to say about this book for two reasons: One is that I DNF’d it at 35%, and two, I DNF’d it at 35% because NOTHING HAPPENED. I normally hate saying that nothing happened in a book because something always does, but seriously, all that had happened one entire third […]
