There are not enough stars or words for how much I loved Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom ❤️❤️❤️❤️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book made me feel everything under the sun and delivered a satisfying ending.

Reggie There is this booktuber I used to follow Reading with Cindy but I think she just goes by WithCindy who does a reading vlog of this book and it‘s her just crying. It‘s funny but it‘s intense. 5d

It took me a bit longer to finish, but I was not disappointed. I wish there had been a little more romance between some of the characters, but it was a great read. The plot and the heists were so well planned that it left me speechless. I loved just as much as it‘s prequel. I can‘t wait to read more by Leigh Bardugo.

What a ride - I loved this one the whole way through but the ending disappointed me. I‘m conflicted because some of the threads were tied up beautifully while others felt abrupt. It also really feels like there‘s more to explore with these characters and the storyline; I hope the rumors of a third book are true!

A great sequel to Six of Crows. I love the gang and was happy to be back with them for another heist. Most characters got a good ending, but there are enough dangling threads that I could see there being a third book!

Crows remember human faces. They remember the people who feed them, who are kind to them. And the people who wrong them too. They don‘t forget. They tell each other who to look after and who to watch out for.

So I finished the second book a few days ago. I still prefer the first book because I enjoyed learning about their past. I did like that in this book Kaz did open up a bit more than the first book. I just wanted more. I didn't want to end.

What were your thoughts on the ending? Also, do you think Van Eck and Pekka Rollins got what they deserved?

⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

Since I re-read the first book in the duology, it seemed only right that I re-read the second book as well. Reading it for the second time didn‘t make the book any less amazing, awe inspiring or painful for that matter. I enjoyed re-living the adventures with the characters and loved the ending (even if I cried…) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I find Kaz insufferable, but I do enjoy how consistent Bardugo is with her characters. They are distinct and their choices make sense for that individual.

Wow! This one was my favorite. I still think this duology is better that the trilogy. These characters are unique, a lot of action and twists. For a YA fantasy, I found it fantastic it really worked for me. It was discussed in The Unforgotten Book Club only with 3 members The three of us loved it. 4.5⭐️

I used one of the @LibrarianRyan book huggers to carry this big book, it was perfect.

When I finished the first book, it was a duology. And I thought, I might give the second book a try, I might like it better later. Since the whole world loves those books, there must be something wrong with me for disliking it so much, right?

Now a third book is announced, I read volume two, and still can't get it what everyone sees in that Kaz guy... So I'm giving up. The series and Leigh Bardugo. They're just not meant for me. Or vice versa.

Twainy I think we are the only two that feel this way. 😵‍💫 You are much braver than I. I haven‘t been able to pick up book 2. I didn‘t like Ninth House either. I think I just don‘t like her writing. 1y
Deifio I didn't like the Six of Crows one either. Didn't even finish it. I don't know just too dark for me I guess. I might watch the series though, give it a try 1y

I liked this better than Six of Crows, I think mostly because I felt like I‘d become invested in the characters and wanted to know how things would resolve and where they would each end up. The book was a little long, but I was sad to have to say goodbye to Kaz and Company.

I love this world so much!! And this book did not disappoint. Though nothing with Kaz in it would disappoint (I hope). Does anyone pretend they‘re not so young, that they‘re really maybe mid-twenties?? Because that makes me feel better about having a crush on Kaz.

This book gave me solace through my covid quarantine. ICYMI; I contracted covid and was (still am) under quarantine since the beginning of August. Not fun 😷🤒

This book though has been my go-to ever since I got sick….it‘s everything!
Another impossible heist with a great set of characters. Be prepared for the ending, it‘s not a perfect happily ever after. But what else would you expect from Leigh Bardugo?

Rating: 4.5/5

Finally settling down to start the sequel. Felt like I was slipping into a reading slump but tried to at least keep listening to audiobooks on my daily commute. I think it helped!

My next reread! Sitting down to write down my TBR for August later tonight and I‘m hoping to finish the Grisha universe this month. This is my favorite series in the universe though, so I‘m worried I‘ll struggle to read the King Of Scars duology 😅

mavey The best in GrishaVerse!!🤩 1y
CollapsingLibrary @Mavey I love this duology above the rest! I finished Rule of Wolves a couple weeks ago and I'm worried about Bardugo trying to do a third and it will ruin it for me... 1y
mavey @PurrfectFeministPerspective Ooh! I have yet to read RoW! How was it?! 1y
CollapsingLibrary @Mavey Honestly I didn't love it! I finished it because I'm dedicated to the characters but I felt like RoW just showed how the characters from the original series and the SoC duology are mirrors of each other and it upset me lol I'm still going to finish the Grishaverse books that come out in the future though! 1y
mavey @CollapsingLibrary Oh no😥I too kinda felt a lil underwhelmed during KoS but lol, yes gunna read anything that Bardugo creates in the universe! 1y

Finished Crooked Kingdom 24 hours ago but wasn't able to post... The book is absolutely A-MAZING! I love every single character and LITERALLY CRIED while reading the ending. I love how everyone ended up, it was beautiful! I don't know if I've ever read a series so beautifully complex, where I love every single character! Kaz and Inej, of course, remains my favourite! Not gonna get the King of Scars series till one month, though! Very excited!!!

So many chapters left me gripping the cover because I thought the characters were done for. the story looks through multiple perspectives so you always see limited knowledge of the job and events going on before jumping to someone with the other puzzle piece. The characters‘ banter with each other was on par. But don‘t get me wrong–I also cried at the book.
