I baked mini banana loaves! But you‘re just going to have to take my word. 🤷🏻♀️
Similar to ‘Lies of Lock Lamorra‘; gangs in a port town. Main characters are similar age to my kids but these are far, far older. Kaz Brekker is not a sympathetic character. Not a YA book. Didn‘t really grip me until about half way through, when we got some background as to why/ how each of the six joined the Dregs gang, but am enjoying it more now. Reading this for my book club as a stand alone (duology) in the ‘Grishaverse‘ series.
YESSSSS a thousand times over!! This is without a doubt the BEST YA book I have read. I will be buying this for my personal collection. That last part just threw more punches at me. My Girl Nina!!! Everything between Nina and Matthias kept bringing me to tears. Im sorry I keep going on about them but I cant help it. I need Bardugo to give lessons on how to write YA because she killed it!!! I will be recommending this to others.
All right I am home from work, and ready to finish off this book. Part 5 nearly ripped my heart out. Matthias and Nina mean everything to me, and I was so close, so freaking close to losing my mind over their part. Yes I care about everyone else, but I would not have been okay if what happened ended up sticking. When it happened and the next chapter went to Jesper I lost it XD haha. Lets see what other scares are in-store for me
This book just keeps getting better and better. I am just...ugh omg i love everyone. I cant stop reading but i keep getting side punched with more feels. I want to take all of them and love them and care for them. The heist is getting crazy.. I never thought I would enjoy a YA book as much as I am enjoying this one. This is what YA needs to be like!!
Part 3 here I come! I am ready to continue this adventure with this rag tag team of miscreants. I love the bitter bickering between Matthias and Nina. Jesper and how he treats and talks to Wylan is hilarious. And I loved the ending conversation of the last chapter about each of them sending their ghosts to annoy or beat up each others ghosts if they get killed, that made them feel like the 17 year olds they are suppose to be haha.
100 pages into this YA book and I don‘t hate anyone yet?! I have no anger towards the plot yet!! What is going on!!! Its been so long since I have enjoyed a YA book, March was the last time I truly enjoyed one. I have to say I am digging the vibes Kaz gives off, he is seventeen but he makes me think he is older By his actions/words. Just met Matthias and things are getting crazy. Also Im not annoyed by any of the girls yet so thats a major plus!
I refuse to learn my lessons with YA books Hahaha XD I have been eying this one for awhile and I have had it from the library for a bit so I figured why not, keep those expectations low and you have nothing to lose. A few have recommended this one to me as it follows MALE MCs which are my favorite type of MC. I‘m one chapter in and so far I am digging it, nothing has upset me which is unusual, since the first chapters usually always make me angry
After reading the trilogy #GrishaVerse, I was looking forward to continuing my introduction with the books by Leigh Bardugo! Starting to read #SixOfCrows, I expected something exciting and promising! And the author did not disappoint me! It's just a great fantasy with well-written world, where you can find realism, magic, and perfectly written characters!
Been reading this for awhile now… it‘s hard when you work at an amusement park and the summer is your main season… it was slow to get into but I am loving it now. Almost done… #sixofcrows
You don‘t need to have read Bardugo‘s Grisha trilogy, but I do think it would help to give more background of the world. This had a kind of Ocean‘s 11 feel to it as the main “crook” gathered 5 others to work together to complete an impossible sounding job. I was most interested in the interpersonal relationships, which the author developed well & revealed slowly. Of course it ended with a cliffhanger, so I‘m excited for book 2!
Not gonna lie, I probably love this book a little too much. But what‘s not to love? Leigh Bardugo has created a beautiful, real, sprawling world with complex, deeply flawed characters you can‘t not fall in love with. Her descriptions are so vivid you don‘t hardly have to close your eyes to see everything, and, frankly, she‘s got the best dialogue I‘ve ever read. In case you can‘t tell, this is my favorite book. Do yourself a favor and read it. 😉
Can‘t believe I‘m on part four already! I‘ve been loving this one so far, and I‘m already looking at borrowing Crooked Kingdom from the library!
? Six of Crows - because I stayed up late to finish it
? Harry Potter - Erol comes to mind. ?
? Daft Punk - Get Lucky "We're up all night 'til the sun We're up all night to get some We're up all night for good fun We're up all night to get lucky"
Funnily enough, Six of Crows is a daily deal! https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00UG9LC4I/ref=pe_170810_420847810_KDD
Is it weird that Six of Crows is one of my fave motivational books? Look, if Kaz can [spoiler redacted] and Inej can [spoiler redacted], and Wylan can—you get the idea.
Good week for #BFC: Got my runs and yoga in, amidst packing up my house. We move this Friday! Read You Asked for Perfect and Her Royal Highness.
Keep on moving, everyone! We‘re halfway there! #BookFitnessChallenge
My reading book stand... though l could call it my 'failure' stand.
Even with my beloved #YearOfTolkien readalong l'm behind 😭
Six of Crows is there since last winter, when l started it for a challenge, and Depth was part of my bingo card.
#NetGalley has a way to derange my TBR. It has kept me busy through the first part of the year, but l really need to read some other books too.
Let's hope in the summer time 😊
The deeper I get into Six of Crows, the less realistic Kaz Brekker feels to me as a character. The best character of the batch (and the one that feels the most like a teenager) is Inej. Kaz reads more like he‘s thirty, at the youngest; that he‘s supposed to be seventeen isn‘t working for me at all.
Today‘s #colormepretty is #grey!
Zero Repeat Forever was a lot like 5th Wave but with a POC main character. I had a lot of problems with the book though.
I had to read Miss Peregrine‘s for school, and I loved the series.
Six of Crows is one of my favorite books, period.
Rose Society was interesting, but not wholly compelling.
The Enemy was an interesting spin on zombies, but not enough for me to read the next book.
So, I‘m still working through Six of Crows, and while there‘s a lot to like about it, I‘m constantly distracted by its classification in YA. I don‘t think this is a YA book, and I‘m curious to hear from both sides of the argument.
What‘s your vote? YA or not YA?
When you say #GetOutTheMap, I take it quite literally. So I‘m bringing three very pretty fantasy maps for the #LillithJuly photo challenge 🗺
I don‘t know how long I‘ll be able to keep up with the posting schedule, but I‘ll actually try this month 😅
I must say that after reading Bardugo's Shadow and Bone trilogy, I was a bit skeptical about moving on to a duology by the same author. But I will say that Bardugo has a way of making you fall in love with her characters, and in this particular book, she keeps the reader constantly wondering what's going to happen, because just when you think you've figured it out, another plot twist gets thrown in the mix. Can't wait to start #2!
Oh my gosh you guys! How have I not read this duology sooner?! I definitely understand the hype on this now! Kaz Brekker might be my favorite book character ever now. 😍 Have any of you guys read this?
