Review: Crooked Kingdom

Crooked Kingdom coverTitle: Crooked Kingdom

Author: Leigh Bardugo

Series: Six of Crows #2

Format: hardback; purchased

Published: Sept. 27th 2016

Synopsis: Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of magic in the Grisha world.


I feel stupid even including all that information and the synopsis, because chances are every single person reading this post already knows all about this book. But, to be a good little blogger and make everything look “official,” I included it anyways. I’m weird, okay?

But this is my first ever review on this blog! And it’s not just any review – coincidentally, the first book I finished this year also happens to be the sequel to my favorite book in the history of ever. This review will contain very light spoilers for the previous book, Six of Crows.

I’m about a week late in creating this post, thanks to school, but I really wanted to start off my year of blogging by mentioning some of the 2017 book releases that I’m looking forward to! A few of the books have already been released, but I since I haven’t actually read most of them yet, I’m gonna include them anyways.

After compiling a list of all the books on my to-buy list for the year, I realized that there were kiiiind of a lot. Like, “30-more-books-than-I-was-expecting” a lot. So I’ve decided to make this a two-part venture! This post (Part 1), is all the book releases in the first half of 2017 (January – June) that I’m excited for! Part 2 of the list (book releases from July-December) will be posted later in the year if I haven’t become totally broke and homeless yet. Also as the year goes on, more book releases for the fall/winter season will be announced, so I’m sure my list wouldn’t be fully complete if I posted it all now.

Without further ado, here is The List (or half of it, at least):
