Sheridan at I Turn the Pages is the creator of the super cool idea for Mood Board Mondays! Where you make a mood board for a book you’re currently reading/finished 🙂 If you want more details, check out her post here!!!
This week I decided to make a mood board for a book I’m currently reading!
Who was your favorite character in the book?
I haven’t finished And I Darken YET but I like Lada’s younger brother Radu. If I lived in their world I would SO be like Radu. But I really REALLY look up to Lada. She’s fierce and strong in a time where woman are viewed as fragile little flowers that can barley life a leaf. Puh-lease people. Lada can kick your butt and I love that xD YOU GO GURL!
Did you pick any specific characters or scenes to be represented in your Moodboard?
Since I haven’t finished And I Darken Yet, I thought I’d do the general mood of the book. It’s kind of dark so I made it black and white. Also it’s historical so there NEEDs to be swords, duh!
Did your Mood Board take a specific color scheme? If you actively chose one, why did you chose that specific color?
I chose black and white because the book is kind of dark, maybe? Also I used a red border thing because I think red is a dominant color so far 🙂
Was there a picture that you just couldn’t find to incorporate into your mood board? If you can answer it with little to no spoilers, tell us how it related to the book!
Yeah there was one, but it wasn’t a hug picture or anything. It was just a sad looking person that reminded me of poor Radu.
If you read the book, what was your rating for it? Link us to your review if you have one!
I HAVEN’T FINISHED IT YET T.T but it’s on my currently reading list 🙂

No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwlya likes it that way. Ever since she and her gentle younger brother, Radu, were wrenched from their homeland of Wallachia and abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman courts, Lada has known that being ruthless is the key to survival. She and Radu are doomed to act as pawns in a vicious game, an unseen sword hovering over their every move. For the lineage that makes them special also makes them targets.
Lada despises the Ottomans and bides her time, planning her vengeance for the day when she can return to Wallachia and claim her birthright. Radu longs only for a place where he feels safe. And when they meet Mehmed, the defiant and lonely son of the sultan, Radu feels that he’s made a true friend—and Lada wonders if she’s finally found someone worthy of her passion.
But Mehmed is heir to the very empire that Lada has sworn to fight against—and that Radu now considers home. Together, Lada, Radu, and Mehmed form a toxic triangle that strains the bonds of love and loyalty to the breaking point.
