Introduction and Six of crows Review

Beryl(1)

Introduction

I’ve put up some facts about me in the About Me page and even in the Homepage, therefore, I don’t think it’s necessary to say more. Instead, I’ve decided that my first blog would be on my favorite book so far, Six of crows. What better way to know a person than through their book preferences, right?

What bound them together? Greed? Desperation? Was it the knowledge that if one or all of them disappeared tonight, no one would come looking?

2016 wasn’t really a good year for me, and I’d been stuck in a horrible reading slump before I decided to read this book. It was a good decision, to say the least.

Literally every page is filled to the brim with quotable lines. Leigh Bardugo’s writing is beautiful and atmospheric. Her style fits the story and overall feel of the book so perfectly that you won’t notice you’re reading words. It’s completely immersing.

The characters, I believe, are the book’s best attributes. All six are unique, each with their own voices and quirks. They have flaws, they make mistakes and they’re not the most agreeable with each other, but this gang works so well together. The dialogues are so on point and so true to character that I just wanna quote them all and post them on my bedroom wall. Leigh unravels the characters’ back-stories in perfect pacing, revealing more about them bit by bit and making you grow attached as it goes. The build up to the heist is made even more enjoyable by little bits of humor here and there that will leave you cracking up. There are twists and turns you’ll never expect and that will leave you thinking that no one and nothing is safe- that’s when the suspense hits and grips you till the end, every moment except when the action has your blood pumping with thrill.

 

My favorite character is Inej, but it’s too hard to choose. Even now as I write this, I’m starting to lean more towards the idea of saying it’s Wylan…or Kaz…Ok, I’ll stop now.

If you haven’t read it yet, you definitely need to pick this one up. The second book is coming out in September, you’ll want to catch up before that, believe me.
