    Finnikin is still sitting on my shelf collecting dust, unfortunately. Even though I’ve read countless of gushing reviews for it, I don’t know why I haven’t grabbed it off the shelf and plopped down in some nice cozy corner to read it yet! So happy that it worked out for you, too. Also, I don’t doubt the book’s ability to make people cry, but I kind of doubt it’ll work on me (there’s a reason why I’m called heartless, lol). I’m hoping I’ll enjoy Finnikin as much as you did when I get to it! Wonderful review. :)
