  • Em (RunawayWithDreamthieves)
    I don't know if I finished this book or if it finished methis book is literally too high quality for this world. I want to assimilate it into my being and find a job where I can apply all the six of crows knowledge that I’ve acquired in my life. there’s literally no combination of 26 letters that could do justice to what this book means to me. there’s no 3D way of describing how it made me feel 9D in color. there’s so much of this story a...

    Trickery is not my native tongue, but I may learn to speak it yet. I was scared to start Six of Crows. The hype surrounding it has been HUGE, the blurb sounded intriguing, I've been eagerly anticipating it, and I liked but didn't love Shadow and Bone. Honestly, though? I needn't have worried. This book is fantastic.Shadow and Bone has been called fantasy-lite, but there is absolutely nothing about Six of Crows that warrants such a label. It's a s...
  • Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies
    The heat of the incinerator wrapped around Inej like a living thing, a desert dragon in his den, hiding from the ice, waiting for her. She knew her body’s limits, and she knew she had no more to give. She’d made a bad wager. It was as simple as that. The autumn leaf might cling to its branch, but it was already dead. The only question was when it would fall.Let go, Inej. Her father had taught her to climb, to trust the rope, the swing, and fi...

    WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO PICK THIS UP?What a ride! This was exactly what I needed and so much more. I'm tempted to give this a 4.75 star rating, but I want to mull it over a little while longer. *EDIT* WHO AM I KIDDING? This deserved the full 5 stars. I was a little unsure about the pacing somewhere around the middle of the book, but to be fair it was due to some of the character development, and the characters were my fave part so who am I ...
  • Kat O'Keeffe
    THIS WAS SO GREAT! I absolutely love the world building--there's a cool magic system and lots of different cities/cultures that have really fascinating dynamics. The ensemble cast of characters is also fantastic! They all have interesting backstories and distinct personalities. Writing is great, story is awesome, pacing on point. It wasn't quite PERFECT, but it was pretty freaking close, and I can't wait for the sequel!If you want a fantasy book ...

    originally read this last year, but decided to re-read it before six of crows! i'm so happy i made that decision. i had forgotten how rich this story is in detail. from the characters, to the world, to the plot, everything is built up so beautifully. the ending still gave me chills and i need crooked kingdom right. now.

    This is the type of book that will blow you away with its words. IT WAS PHENOMENAL!!!!
  • Jesse (JesseTheReader)
    THIS BOOK. I'm trying not to add to the hype pool right now, but like THIS BOOK. IT BLEW ME AWAY. It was unexpectedly brilliant! I WANNA BE IN THE SIX OF CROWS SQUAD.

    Side effects of reading Six of Crows are, but not limited to: Shortness of breath. Heart palpitations. Nausea. Weak knees. Dehydration. Dizziness. Headache. Heartache. Constant sweating. High blood-pressure. Congestive heart failure. “The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true.”Six of Crows is 185th book I've read this year. Yes, that means this is the book that put me at my goodreads reading goal this year. I am so happy that this is...

    “This isn't a job for trained soldiers and spies. It's a job for thugs and thieves.” Dark and gritty adventure. A bunch of anti-heroes. A dangerous scientist. A nation of witch hunters. Gang wars. Grisha. And Leigh Bardugo. That's the recipe for EPICNESS. “A gambler, a convict, a wayward son, a lost Grisha, a Suli girl who had become a killer, a boy from the Barrel who had become something worse.” The fate of the world is in the hands...

    Mercy, Leigh, mercy. I hit myself in the head with this ARC too many times to count. Buckle up, folks, it's going be a razor-edged night.

    Excellent novel is excellent. Review to come. ----WHAT IS THIS?
  • Whitney Atkinson
    finished this at 3:30 AM this morning crying at the line "i will have you without armor, Kaz Brekker, or I will not have you at all."i'm addicted ????? yikes ???????

    We are all someone's monsterthis is a very strong series-starter.bardugo's tor shorts are among my very favorites of all tor shorts ever, but when i read Shadow and Bone, i was a bit confused. no, i was actually shocked. it didn't have the sparkle that characterized her shorts and i was very disappointed. i'm glad i continued with the series, however, because i thought it got better and better as it went along. which is kind of the opposite exper...
  • Wendy Darling
    All I have to say is, this book is somehow even more awesome than the original series. Don't be nervous about the multiple POVs--every character has history and agency, and you'll care deeply about every single one of them. Plus diversity! Kickass heroines! Gifted thieves! Amaaaaazing action sequences! All perfectly paced and perfectly thrilling. My full review, plus Grisha prize pack giveaway are on the blog:
  • C.G. Drews
    THIS BOOK IS TOO PRECIOUS FOR THIS WORLD. Omg. This is a re-read and just confirmed to me that I am basically absolutely obsessed with the Grishaverse. Someone please restrain me because I'm about to write an ENORMOUS LIST OF MY LOVES AND THOUGHTS AND FANGIRLISMS. (Kidding, don't restrain me.)I'll leave my original review here too, tho, because why not.LIST OF MY RE-READ THOUGHTS:• The best part about rereading this is that IT IS NOW 5-STARS. O...
  • jessica
    came for the kaz brekker hype; stayed for the jurda crazy grisha, the heist, the nina/matthias tension, the scheming face, the ‘my ghost would not associate with your ghost’ talk, and of course, the kaz brekker other words, i am absolute trash for this book and leigh bardugo has eternal claim to my soul. 5 stars
    I'm just going to pretend the ending never happened. They completed their mission job, got their money, and lived happily ever after. CROOKED KINGDOM NEVER HAPPENED! ✪ ✪ ✪ ✪ "Six people, but a thousand ways this insane plan could go wrong." Favorite character: NINA!!!!! No! Stop it, Kainat, stop it! You must contain yourself.!Remember when i read this book for the first time, i couldn't even do a proper review because i couldn't find any...
  • Adam Silvera
    ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS EVER. So happy I waited until I was in the right headspace to read this mammoth of a masterpiece, and that I have the sequel at the ready!
  • Virginia Ronan ♥ Herondale ♥
    How to begin this review? How to put into words how much I loved these characters and this book?How am I supposed to write down all those many feels? And most importantly,How can I live with this ache in my chest? I have no answer to all of those questions, but I know that I have to write this review! So here I go! Let’s hope my voice doesn’t falter and pray that my words don’t fail. “The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true....

    #1 Six of Crows ★★★★★#2 Crooked Kingdom ★★★★★My god, this book. I mean… I already know that I can’t even do it a little bit of justice with this review, but I have to try. I cannot believe that this beautiful, incredible, wondrous book sat on my shelf unread for fourteen months before I picked it up—all because I hadn’t finished the Grisha trilogy yet. Let me tell you, as long as you’ve read Shadow and Bone, if you...

    UPDATE: I actually got my mother obsessed with my favorite book? in related news I still have to lie down for 40 hours whenever Kaz and Inej interact// three chapters into reading this with my mother and she says "it's official: I'm in love with Kaz" and honestly if that isn't the mood for today__________________________Five solid stars. This book pulled me in from the beginning, to the point where I knew I'd found a favorite before I was halfway...

    “No mourners,” he said with a grin.“No funerals,” they replied in unison.”This review contains *spoilers*.Saints, I’m definitely late to this book party— but I love, love, loved it.I think a lot of people will understand me when I say that Six of Crows is the kind of book that provokes all the strong emotions in you. I knew right from page 1 that this book was going to be an all-time favorite of mine. The world building, the charact...

    Reviewed by: Rabid Reads4.5 starsMy FEELS are broken. Words, too. Which is making the reviewing of SIX OF CROWS by Leigh Bardugo more than a little bit difficult . . . FYI. SO. Hmm . . . *scratches head* The book started well enough, but by 40% it was more determination that kept me reading than enthusiasm. The characters were great. I felt like they were decently developed, and it was a veritable thunderstorm of one-liners and clever dialogue: K...

    Six of Crows is one of my favorite books of all time, and no review I write will do this book justice or portray how much I love it or how perfect it is. So instead, I’m making a list of favorite moments and quotes and other things!!I spent AT LEAST 5 hours writing this and another hour editing, and it’s the longest thing I’ve ever written but also the best thing I’ve ever written and I swear to god I love myself about 5x more for doing t...

    HEYOOO THIS BOOK WAS GREAT.I found the beginning (meaning the first 150-200 pages lol) to be very very slow and hard to get into, which is why the book took me so long to read. HOWEVER, once it got past that point I was absolutely hooked and breezed through the rest of the book in a couple of days.I loved the characters, and their group dynamic was flawless. There's plenty of drama and they all have interesting backstories, and they each had a sp...

    As you can see, I finally jumped on the band wagon and inhaled the first in this series. While it did take me about 50 pages to really get sucked in, mainly due to sorting out names and the layout of this fantasy world, things picked up quickly and I blew through a majority of the book about as fast as I can scarf down a large pizza. (But for real, Papa John’s makes a great side dish for this book. And all books.) The major pull for my placing ...
