Six of Crows
Nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2017, this fantasy epic from the No. 1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of the Grisha trilogy is gripping, sweeping and memorable - p erfect for fans of George R. R. Martin, Laini Taylor and Kristin Cashore.
Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams...more
My issue with the second chapter in SoC is that it throws way too many names at you. Really the only three you need to remember are Inej, Kaz, and Jesper and the rest are minor characters. This chapter is fun to reread after you've already know who's who, but it can be pretty tricky the first go around.
I personally feel you shouldn't give up until you've at least read the third chapter because that is when the main plot kicks into gear. I know this post is a year old but just in case other people stumble across it I thought I would add my two cents(less)
More lists with this book...
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. There are very, very few books that I love so whol ...more
“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 the book that made me hit my mark. It was the perfect ...more

^ That’s me screaming.
This has been: my full review of Six of Crows. Bye.
I guess I can elaborate ...more
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 sweeping epic tale with six main characters, fiv ...more
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....more
Let go, Inej. Her father had taught her to climb, to trust the rope, the swing, and finally, to trust in her own skill, to believe that i
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 protected place in Fjerda, and Kaz won't be able to gatec ...more
What a ride! This was exactly what I needed and so much more.
in other words, i am (still) absolute trash for this book and leigh bardugo has eternal claim to my soul.
↠ 5 stars
i'm addicted ????? yikes ??????? ...more
“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 of six teenagers, six street rats with ...more
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.”
When I first read about “Six of Crows” I thought that it ...more
So much hype surrounding this book, many positive reviews from my friends yet in the end ...more
is 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 complexities of their psyches and how they react emotionall ...more
WHAT IS THIS?
this 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 experience from most reviewers, but i'm just me.
and may ...more
So, I’m legit four years late reading this - meaning pretty much everyone else already read this ages ago and there are tons of great reviews out there - so I'll keep this short.
I’ll just say that this was truly one of the bests books I’ve read in a long time. The plot was like a magical/steampunk/Gangs of New York meets Ocean’s Eleven and the characters were SO magnetic and well-written that I was gripped from page one. Bardugo’s writing, humor, pacing...everything, really, was ju ...more
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: http://www.themidnightgarden.net/2015...
Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the ...more
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!! 😭😭😭😭😭
It’s been a long time coming and I’m so happy to have reread it. My heart feels full and content and there’s no better mark and feeling a book can leave you with but that.
And I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this book is poetry.
“They're all survivors. They adapt.”
Well, damn, damn and mo ...more
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’s the longest thing I’ve ever written but also t ...more
