Spoiler-free review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo 📓

six of crows 4Hi everyone!

A quick look on my goodreads will tell you that I have shelved Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo with the book series I don’t intend to finish. This was a few years ago, when I read the first novel; it was alright, it wasn’t a bad book at all. I rated it 3 stars, but I didn’t enjoy it enough to want to continue with the trilogy.

Six of Crows then came out, and I was interested; it sounded pretty great. I saw and read so many great reviews for it so I was definitely intrigued. Still, I didn’t plan on reading it because I hadn’t finished the Grisha Trilogy and I didn’t see myself reading it without having finished the original series first. That’s a personal thing, I know, but it’s how I felt (and it’s mostly still how I feel when it comes to other novels, I don’t like staring in the middle of a series). So many people have told me I could read Six of Crows on its own just fine, that I would have no problem understanding things. And I believed them, but I wasn’t sure. Recently though, after being told this again, being in the mood for a novel like this one and my interest in the novel still being there, I told myself to just read it. Which I did, and I don’t regret it at all.Read More »
