Authors: Jeff Smith, illustrated by Charles Vess
Rating: 5/5 stars
A prequel to Jeff Smith's epic Bone, Rose is the story of Rose and her rise and fall. Charles Vess' artwork is breathtaking throughout. I don't know that this story packs as much of a punch as the main series, Bone does given that I know the outcome, but it is still a great companion piece and worth reading if you enjoyed the main series.
I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!
