Six Of Crows - Review

Book Review:
Title: Six of Crows
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Publisher: Orion Children's Book

“The easiest way to steal a man’s wallet is to tell him you’re going to steal his watch. You take his attention and direct it where you want it to go.”

Six Of Crows in a nutshell is about a group of individuals going on a heist together to earn a hell of a lot of money. Within this group we have Kaz (a thief), Inej (a spy), Nina (a heartrender), Wylan (a runaway), Matthias (a convict) and Jesper (a sharpshooter.) To earn the money, they have to complete said heist without getting themselves killed by the enemy...or even by each other.

This book was so freaking awesome! I put off reading it for a couple of months because I was scared that it wasn't going to live up to the hype surrounding it; oh, how I was wrong! This book deserves all of hype received and then some. Everything about this book was brilliant. Everything! The plot was brilliant. The writing flowed right from start to finish. And the Characters were the icing on top of the cake.

The characters definitely were my favourite thing about this book. I thought it would be quite hard to read from so many POVs but once again I was proven wrong. I loved each character and getting to read things from their own perspective. If I had to choose a favourite, I would probably say Inej. I loved how she was given all of the difficult tasks, but she never once complained and she was always up for doing them. After Inej, it would have be Kaz, followed by Nina and then Jesper, Matthias and Wylan all together.

During my read of Six of Crows, I established three core ships which I hope to see more of in Crooked Kingdom. Those three ships were Kaz&Inej, Nina&Matthias and Jesper&Wylan. You could clearly see that both Kaz&Inej and Nina&Matthias had a connection with each other, and Jesper&Wylan were having so much flirty banter that you can't not ship them.

Honestly, this was a great read and if you haven't read it yet or are weary to read it, I really recommend you do pick it up. You will not be disappointed. The only part that disappointed me was the end because I realised that I would have to wait about a year before I could get my hands on the sequel.

5 Stars
