    THE GRISHA TRILOGY AND SIX OF CROWS ARE COMING TO NETFLIX!!!! I swear to God the first time I see Kaz Brekker on the screen, it's going to send me into shock and fucking kill me -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 ...

    HOW ARE YOU ALL NOT FREAKING OUT ABOUT THIS BEING A NETFLIX SHOW??__________________________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 through. Here, Bardugo integrates a creative plot, interesting and morally grey characters, group dynamics and banter, a great writing style, and some really, really prime romance plots. Goddamn, can Leigh Bardugo write romance. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Wow..there are no words!I WANT TO GIVE THIS BOOK 10 STARS!This took me awhile to write, but I've been meaning to write a long review for awhile.So here it is!Six of Crows follows six teenagers living in the city of Ketterdam, a city of slums and crime lords.Kaz Brekker, an infamous thief (also known as Dirtyhands) is promised a very large sum of money to kidnap Bo Yul-Bayur, a scientist from the Ice Court. The Ice Court is the most highly protect...

    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 ...

    This book, I like it! *smashes iPad* Another!
  • Jesse (JesseTheReader)
    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.
  • 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.

    This is the type of book that will blow you away with its words. IT WAS PHENOMENAL!!!!
  • jessica
    came for the kaz brekker hype; stayed for the jurda crazy grisha, a heist of the century, all 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 (still) absolute trash for this book and leigh bardugo has eternal claim to my soul.↠ 5 stars
  • Katerina
    “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.

    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....

    Read 3 | 2019is my tbr yelling furiously at me while it grows tall enough to block out the sun and yet I choose to reread Six of Crows for the third time? yes. yes that just happened. (I also wanted to do a massive Grishaverse reread before King of Scars. I'm so so glad I did because ugh I love these six damaged kids. I still have some thorough reservations about shipping Kaz/Inej (aka, I don't) but I'm obsessed with them all...with the complexit...

    Excellent novel is excellent. Review to come. ----WHAT IS THIS?
  • karen
    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:

Bye.I guess I can elaborate on that, but really it’s going to boil down to the same thing. Which is me screaming.I’m only, like, 17% joking. I have no idea how to review th...

    Reread x2!God bless my shitty memory, BECAUSE THAT ENDING!!!!! Mind is bamboozled! Kaz, you cunning motherfucker! I love every single one of these characters, BUT KAZ!! 😭😭😭😭😭 I’m obsessed!It’s been a long time coming and I’m so happy to have reread it.

    after my third reread, I have concluded that Leith Bardugo does NOT deserve rights and I will be making a petition immediately to take them away 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...
  • 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!
    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...

    Disclaimer:I got few angry messages about my rant on this book saying that is just MY OPINION. Well I thought that text being in box with my name above made that obvious but to avoid confusion I must state that text bellow aren't words God or truths from deep universe only subjective opinion of ruggedly handsome mortal who's name and picture you can see above. I hope this avoids further confusion. /DisclaimerSo much hype surrounding this book, ma...

    #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...
