Six of Crows Appreciation Post


Because it warranted one. Desperately. 

It’s also spoiler free!

Six Reasons Why Six of Crows is Awesome and Why You Should Most Definitely Go Out and Buy Yourself A Copy of this Masterpiece Now:

1. The Concept

A motley gang of thieves pulling off the greatest heist ever. I mean, HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT? And you thought Bonnie and Clyde had it bad…. You’d have to be suicidal to try and pull this heist off…and I absolutely love it. Plus, this is like nothing I’ve read before. (I’m not well read in gangs of thievery, that really needs to change.) It does however, kind of remind me of the show Leverage. But that’s a story for another day.

2. The Characters

Matthias Helvar: A convict with a thirst for revenge.

You confused little drüskelle you.

Jesper Fahey: A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.

Jesper, Jesper, Jesper, you gun-loving little spirit.

Wylan Van Eck: A runaway with a privileged past.

My little precious child.

Inej Ghafa: A spy known as the Wraith.

BAD-ASS. with a troubled past.

Nina Zenik: A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

Bless your soul.

KAZ FREAKING BREKKER: A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Or did I mean, Kaz (heart)Breaker…. ha ha ha.

3. The Plot

It’s fast paced, with new surprises at every turn. Honestly, some of these things happened so quickly I was just like “WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED!?” But that’s what makes the book so amazing. I never found myself seeing how many more pages it was until the end (I just know that I can’t be the only one who does this sometimes) because for all intent and purposes, I never wanted it to end. Ever.

And the ending? Let me tell you a little bit about the ending. It’s the kind of ending that makes me hate the fact that the second book doesn’t come out until September 2016. (It’s not even early September, it’s the end. I cry.) I also (kind of) regret reading the book so early because of the goddamn ending. I swear Leigh Bardugo, you are a master of crushing hearts….

4. The Action

I personally love action in a book. It’s part of the reason why I tend to gravitate towards high fantasy novels more than any other type….it’s because of the action. And this book certainly does not disappoint on the action scenes. (There’s a lot of them) and I never find myself getting bored or wondering when it’ll jump to the next part.

5. The World Building

If you didn’t like the Grishaverse before (tbh I don’t know anyone who didn’t) or haven’t been exposed to it, well what better way to start/give it another go! The best thing is, you see a whole completely new part of the Grishaverse (for those of you who read Shadow and Bone) and let me tell you, this is just as amazing. It’s like a new, in-depth submersion. Like I probably wouldn’t want to live in Ketterdam, but I totally would at the same time. And like the White Castle, yeah the people might be a little weird but you can’t say it isn’t cool. It’s a freaking fortress that’s totally one out of our childhood fantasy books. 



(Not my photo btw, it’s from, but it captured the beauty that is Six of Crows)

Final Verdict: WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Go grab yourself a copy.
