It is time for another book review! whoop, whoop! today it is for a book that I have been wanting to read for a few years a now, and a book that took me nearly a month to actually get through, and that book is Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Let’s do this!
I apologise in advance in case this review is slightly incoherent. As of this moment typing it, it is nearly 12 am and I have been up since 5:30 am, working at 7 am, so I am slightly (very) sleep deprived, and not sure if I made any sense. So, enjoy (lol)
Well I can 100% see what all the hype is about with this book. it is incredible and utterly unique. I really, really enjoyed it. I don’t think that I loved it quiet as much as everyone else seems to, but I think that that may be more to do with my own, personal, reading mood at the moment (minor slump) than the actual books.
There was just so much going on in this book, and I loved it. the storylines where just so brilliant. not only where they incredibly unique and original, they really kept me on my toes. I never knew what was going to happen next. If a plan would work or fail. Whose side who was on. I just didn’t know. I can’t remember the last book that kept me this alert. I was honestly so engrossed by it, I just wanted to know what was going to happen. I will however be honest and admit that I did have a hard time getting into this book, and finding the motivation to actually pick it up and continue with it. But, I do think that that is more to do with myself and the slight reading slump that I am currently in, then the actual book. although, I did have a similar issue with Shadow And Bone…so who knows.
But the thing that I truly, truly loved about this book, were the characters. I just loved them all so much. I wasn’t expecting to fall for them so deeply when I first picked this book up. it really took me by surprise. I found myself really rooting for them and connecting with them more then I have with any characters for quite a while. I really loved them. I loved that each character was completely their own. They were all so very different, and already so well developed that it was just so easy to instantly connect to each individual character and know who was who. They all had such unique personalities and voices. And i loved that although they share some base personality points, they aren’t carbon copies of one another. And I loved their bond. Just, how far that they would go for each other and just their commitment to each other. It was so great to read about. I just knew that they would die for each other.
All in all, I did really enjoy this book. I am already very excited to read Crooked Kingdom, I can’t see me waiting long to pick it up! Six Of Crows is well worth it’s hype.
