So I just recently left my bookstore job, after being there for 3 years (and 2 months!). Strangely enough, this was the job I’ve held the longest since I was 15. Kind of surreal! Anyway, I have a full-time job now, which keeps me crazy busy, so that’s what I’ve been upto for the past little while! As part of a treat to myself for leaving the bookstore, I dropped an obscene amount of money on books… As if I needed help doing that! Because I’d taken a step away from blogging, I’d missed out on hearing about bigger YA titles coming out this fall.
Imagine my surprise when I saw this beauty sitting on the shelf, looking very sleek with its black cover and red accents – Natasha Romonoff’s (aka Black Widow) stands out quite clearly, and the signature ‘Black Widow’ hourglass provides a smart link to the book.
Currently I’m only about 10 chapters in, but its a very fast paced, action-filled read. If you’re a Black Widow fan, or even just a Marvel fan in general, this is a MUST read! There are slight mentions to things discussed in The Avengers, but if you’re new to the Marvel fandom, you do not have to have seen The Avengers in order to read it! The only question I have currently, is where exactly in the Marvel timeline does this book fall?
