I love the characters and how well-rounded they all are. It's just great.


A part of my favorite YA series. The book is heavy on character development, so I recommend this book to anyone interested in that. However, the middle section of the book is heavily devoted to fleshing out the character's backstories and relationships with one another meaning that the plot slows down at this point. Personally, plot is not that relevant to how much I enjoy a book, so this does not bother me, but I like to warn people before going in. That being said, there are very action-packed sections of the book (it is about a gang of criminals on a heist after all)


Six of Crows is about a gang called the Dregs which is led by Kaz Brekker. He puts together a crew to carry out an almost impossible mission. That's all I'm going to say about the plot so I don't ruin it for the people who haven't read it. I will sat that the plot had so many twists and turns that I had to stop reading for a second to take it all in. There were a few times I was thinking "Why are you doing this to me Leigh Bardugo??" The book was told through multiple points of view, I don't usually do well with books with different points of view however Six of Crows is an exception to that. Having the different points of view helped me connect with the characters who I loved. It is hard to choose a favourite between Kaj, Inej, Nina, Jesper, Wylan and Matthias. I loved them all because the each brought a unique twist to the story. If I had to choose a favourite I would say that Kaz tips it slightly. I love the way he talked and acted and I was instantly drawn to him and I just loved him. I read this book in two or three days and I loved every minute of it. I felt so many emotions whilst reading this that included happiness, sadness, anxiety, anger, confusion and for most of it shock. I wasn't able to read much for a few days after I read this because I couldn't stop thinking about it and I think I might have a slight (ok big) obsession with it. The way it ended left me wanting more and I have never wanted the next book as much as I did with this one. Leigh Bardugos writing was some of the best writing I have ever read and it it's now one of my all time favourite books. It was so unique and the world building/ character building was phenomenal. I really want to read more of Bardugos work and I cannot wait for Crooked Kingdoms.
