    Before I start my review, can we just take a minute to admire this beautiful piece of art featuring my favorites: Source“I will have you without armour, Kaz Brekker. Or I will not have you at all.”This review contains *spoilers*.The wait for this grandiose sequel has been all-consuming, I've been thinking about the Dregs for months and months now, so getting back into their lives has been one of the most rewarding experiences.The book opens...

    That’s the problem with Ketterdam, Jesper thought as they stumbled uncertainly through the dark. Trusting the wrong person can get you killed. What's that down there on the ground, you say? Oh, it's just my heart after Bardugo callously ripped it out *sob*Seriously, this book was such a crazy ride. The jump in quality from the Grisha trilogy to Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom is just astounding. These books have Bardugo's compelling style all ...

    Review/discussion: favourite part of reading this was that as I took review notes every time I wrote Kaz it autocorrected to Kazoo This freaking book oh my goodness. I LOVED IT, even more than the first one actually. I adore this characters and I must see them again. A Nina spin off perhaps? YES PLEASE.

    *heaves deep breath in*Where do I even begin?Leigh friggin' Bardugo. You really, truly outdid yourself with this one. Never in my life have I been more severely anxious over a novel than this right here— would it live up to the hype's madness? Could it surpass the sheer awesomeness that was Six of Crows? Will anything ever compare? Was I just digging my own grave of unfulfilled hopes and dreams like this?Yes, yes, yes and NO, thank the Saints (...

    COMPLETELY SPOILER-FREE REVIEW:First thing first, meet Kaz Brekker's crew:5 REASONS WHY CROOKED KINGDOM IS THE BEST SEQUEL EVER#1 Storytelling at its bestThis book will literally keep you on the edge of your seat, your toes curling and your heart racing.

    HOW DO I EVEN ACCURATELY REVIEW THIS MASTERPIECE??? I don't know. What are words. What is air. WHAT IS TYPING AFJDSKALFDAJSKDLJD. Okay okay, I will calm myself and wrote some (semi)coherent thoughts but basically all you need to know is this book is a magnificent villainous piece of genius that I love so so so so much. Hence the "WHAT IS AIR" question because fjakldfsad if I fangirl anymore I will lose my miiiiiiind.(Just kidding hhaha. I lost my...

    “No mourners.No funerals.” Let me tell you a story about a girl I know.For the first time in her life, she got a job, a great job, and she was happy about it. There was only one huge drawback: there was no time to read. Only stolen moments and a few pages a day, just to keep in touch with the essence of magic only words can offer. One cloudy morning, while she was in the bus to work, reading, a scene came. You know which one. There was a guns...

    congratulations! semifinalist in goodreads' best YA fantasy & science fiction category 2016! But wasn't that what every girl dreamed? That she'd wake and find herself a princess? Or blessed with magical powers and a grand destiny? Maybe there were people who lived those lives. Maybe this girl was one of them. But what about the rest of us? What about the nobodies and the nothings, the invisible girls? We learn to hold our heads as if we wear crow...

    "Better terrible truths than kind lies."(ALL SPOILERS ARE HIDDEN)Well, that was emotional. I love these characters so much it's ridiculous. I mean, I thought they were incredible in Six of Crows, but that love just got taken to a whole new level. They became six of the strongest, most defined characters I've ever seen and I cannot choose a favorite. I pretty much ship everyone, too... so many adorable couples.Oh my goodness I just went a whole pa...

    Wah… Once again I’m at the end of the road with a bunch of pals I hate to see go. Honestly, I didn’t have high expectations for Six of Crows before starting it; I’ve learned over the past few years that most books being overly hyped tend to let me down, so I adjusted my expectations and decided to read it just to say I had. I was wrong about this one. If I had read Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy first, I probably would have gotten through it ...

    One day later, I still can't believe that I didn't love this. I still can't believe that I've waited a year, seen all my friends adoring it, and ended disappointed and alone in my shameful corner. I still can't believe that I almost wish I didn't read it, because I can't forget that while I did like it, Crooked Kingdom : Yep, that's Kaz. Hear me out : it's no secret that I have a soft spot for cunning and ruthless thieves who may or may not be hi...
  • Adam Silvera
    Leigh Bardugo's stories are masterful. I'm such a slow reader with a mountainous TBR, so to have read ALL FIVE of her books is a huge sentiment in my life. I love the Grisha world so much and welcome any and all additions to it. Also, GIMME A TV SHOW WITH THESE CHARACTERS. This world is so epic.

    Obviously. Full review and gush will be on my channel.

    *Have any of you wondered what I did with all the cash Pekka Rollins gave us?""Guns?" asked Jesper."Ships?" queried Inej."Bombs?" suggested Wylan. "Political bribes?" offered Nina. They all looked at Matthias. "This is where you tell us how awful we are," she whispered.* I absolutely love it when an author takes a rhythmic pattern and makes it their trademark. This was so incredibly beautiful. It just helps you fall in love one word at a time. Th...

    MY VIDEO REVIEW IS NOW LIVE: was INCREDIBLE!I don't have the words to describe how absolutely perfect this is. Hands down the best book I've read this year and one of the best books I've EVER read.I loved the first book, but Crooked Kingdom took the bones of Six of Crows and gave them life. Not only is it the perfect sequel in terms of expanding the world and further developing the themes and characters, but it ca...

    WrensReads Review:I'm not going to fan girl in this review. This series is on a whole other level, beyond the girl of fanning. This book has my respect.Let's just take in the fact that not only did Leigh Bardugo create a book with a once-sex-slave, a gambler, two people who fall in love even though they were raised to hate each other, a cripple and an illiterate as main characters who do really great and unbelievable things even though they hav...

    Updated *Full Review* only minor spoilers..Wowow. Spoiler free initial thoughts.. 1. Holy blazers this is the most in depth clever plot I've ever read. 2. Bless you, Leigh, bless you.3. If you haven't read Grisha.. i highly recommend it.. because it will make this book that much more awesome. Not only is Grisha one of my ALL TIME favorite trilogies, but I absolutely adored this and the two series weave together SO well. Why? (view spoiler)[ Becau...
  • Maxwell
    A really, really good follow-up to Six of Crows. I don't want to say too much for fear of spoilers, but there is a lot of amazing character development in this story, and I appreciated how Bardugo was able to wrap everything up. Although I am sad that we don't get another book with these characters, it was a wonderful conclusion. Loved it!---Earlier updates...The edges of this one are going to be sprayed red. RED! To whom did Leigh Bardugo sell ...

    I needed to wait a little while after reading this to write a review because I was so emotional. Rating Roller Coaster:While Reading: ★★★★★ (For 85% most of this)After Finishing: ✰✰ (I was/am upset)After Calming Down: ★★★★ Non-Spoilery Section of the review.This was one of my most anticipated books this year. That is always a blessing and a curse because it leaves a really high bar to live up to. That said this book delivere...

    1.) Six of Crows ★★★★ “Maybe there were people who lived those lives. Maybe this girl was one of them. But what about the rest of us? What about the nobodies and the nothings, the invisible girls? We learn to hold our heads as if we wear crowns. We learn to wring magic from the ordinary.” First and foremost, can we talk about the diversity and representation in this book?- Main characters are POC.- LGBTQ main characters.- Disabled m...

    "Don’t worry, Da. People point guns at each other all the time in Ketterdam. It’s basically a handshake."•I did take my sweet time to read the highly, highly anticipated Crooked Kingdom. Just think that on the release day, I was so impatient to read it I bought a digital copy even though the physical copy I had pre-ordered was on its way to my house (by all accounts, it still isn't here yet, so my money weren't wasted at all). And yet, in s...
