Romanov Readalong - Day #5


 Day 5 already! Wow we are making great progress!!

! SPOILER ALERT ! The following post contains spoilers for the chapters 24 to 29. So unless you’ve read them, DON’T PROCEED ! SPOILER ALERT !

-S P O I L E R S-

Okay wow Zash about to kill himself. Honestly I feel the same as Nastya, angry and hurt. Alexei is just too freaking sweet. But also *grudgingly* he's right. 

Those words at the end of chapter 29 - "You can save Alexei's life. And then disappear from mine."

Ouch.

But I would have probably felt the same as Nastya and even said something worse! I definitely am looking forward to Zash's explanation, not sure if it will be a good one but nevertheless I'm intrigued and wondering whatever it could be.

 BUT OKAY JOY IS ALIVE AND SAFE AND THAT FILLS MY HEART WITH SUCH HAPPINESS. 

 I like Zash's grandmother. She's such a practical and kind lady and I wish we'd seen more of her. Also am I the only one curious about all the food mentioned? I want to taste borscht because it sounds like the perfect comfort food. (If anyone knows, is it just a variant of soup or quite different?)

ALSO ALEXEI MY BRAVE, PRECIOUS BOI! when he woke up and asked Vira "Will you fight with me?" I swear I had a lump in my throat like Nastya. That boy deserves SO much better!

And when Nastya questioned if the bond of their hearts spans death, I got all choked up again. Seriously, this book is making me quite emotional!

 OH OH also the spell leading West to Dochkin. That's such a brilliant little thing. I hope they find Dochkin soon and fix up Alexei!

 I feel like a lot happened in these chapters but also not much happened? I'm not sure how to explain but yeah!

-L E T    U S   D I S C U S S -

What do you think is going to happen next? Do you think they'll find Dochkin without any trouble from Yurovsky?

    “Please, Iisus, let it be death.”

    It broke my heart to see Nastya wish for death while in her ethereal form. And when their bodies returned to them, they’re alive! And Zash is with them! I’m doing a happy dance right now! A possibility of reversing the time, by Dochkin? I’m more and more hopeful. Though Zash carrying spell ink was an indication, still, Babushka and her magic were a pleasant surprise! And ooh … Zash has his secrets too.

    Yesterday only we were all so upset and I was lamenting the fact that in fiction why did everyone have to die, and today, it seems I spoke too soon! After all, Alexei and Nastya are still alive, though the former is barely so. But Dochkin is very near, my heart says so. And they will be saved.

    Yurovsky, I want to punch him myself. I hope that they don’t come across each other till Nastya and team reach Dochkin. The odds are too good to be true though, here’s hoping for the best for tomorrow. fingers crossed
