Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight–she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graces as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug.
When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change.
She never expects to become Po’s friend.
She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace–or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away… (From: Goodreads)

⭐ Graceling stars!!!
In these dungeons the darkness was complete, but Katsa had a map in her mind.
DNF @ p. 318
The reason why I picked up this book was because it had been on my shelf for faaaaar too long. We really should learn from history. However,
I make the same mistake again and again. That is…I bought the whole trilogy before I even read the first book.
Things I Dislike About It
– freaking slow-path
It was so slow and boring. I didn’t even like the writing style.
– Katsa + Po
This relationship was just inappropriate. I couldn’t explain or describe it.
The Reason Why I DNF
Why the heck did I DNF this book at p. 318?
You were at 318!!! This book only has 471 pages! Why?
I kept telling myself that the next chapter might be better, the next chapter might be better. I ended up skimming through them. And when I was at 318, I decided not to waste my time anymore.
That’s all for my review of Graceling by Kristen Cashore. Let me know what you think.
Have a nice day and I’ll see you next time. Bye-bye 👋
