Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog. I know that it has been a long time since I last wrote a blog post, which I apologise for, but I have a good reason for this. Since my last blog post, I have had a very busy time at college with my course. I have had a lot of full-on rehearsals for dance shows that I have been in and I have had tons of coursework as well for university next year. I have also had to go visit a few universities for next year so I have had no time to write anymore. As you can probably tell from everything that I have been doing, I have come back home exhausted from hours of rehearsals and coursework. Now, however, I should have more time so I will try and write blog posts for every week. Now that I have talked about all of this, I will talk about the book that I have just finished reading today which is… Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.
I really enjoyed this story as it was fast paced and had me glued from the first page to the last. So much happened and I really enjoyed learning about all of the characters.
The characters were all very different to each other which was good and they all had something interesting about them which made them different. My favourite male character was Kaz Brekker. I like him the most as he is such a clever character. He’s so young, yet he went through so much and ended stronger because of it which I have to say I really admire about him. I was amazed at the schemes that he came up with and how everything he did ended up working. He is also a born leader which was really interesting to me.
My favourite female character is Inej aka The Wraith, as she is really important to the story. I feel like I could relate to her with the fact that she can sneak up on people and they won’t know she’s there as I can sometimes go somewhere and not be noticed. I feel sorry for how she was treated when she was younger but feel happy at the way she is now. I really want her and Kaz together so hopefully that will happen in the second book. I liked how their relationship grew so much, yet it was more in the background so it didn’t take away from the main plot.
Nina is a good character as well as she is a Grisha and has to go through so much throughout this novel due to what happened to her in the past and what happens to her in the present. She is really tough and cares about the people she is with. I like the fact that she won’t be pushed around and that she will fight when she has to which is really good to read.
Jesper is a really interesting character as he is very different from the others. He cares about all the people that he is with and doesn’t want anything bad to happen to them. He interested me but he wasn’t my favourite character in the book.
Matthias grew on me during the story. At the beginning I hated him, but the more I learned about him and saw him change, the more I started to like him. It was the things that he believed in that truly annoyed me and made me think of him as a villain at first. I like how his character progressed and changed into a more likable character.
Wylan I really like as he is such a naive character who didn’t want to be a criminal, yet ended up working with a group of criminals. He is such a clever character and did things that I didn’t think that he was capable of doing. I like how his relationship with everyone grew and how he changed throughout the story.
There were so many twists and turns throughout the book that I was on the edge of my seat throughout most of the story. I didn’t know what was going to happen next and I didn’t see anything that happened coming. Even up to the last ten pages twists keep happening and you don’t know who to trust anymore. I loved this book so much will start reading Crooked Kingdom immediately. I gave this book a 5/5 stars.
P.S. I just created an Instagram account for my blog which is A Universe For Books. I just started on there today so my first picture might not look the best but I will improve with time so you can follow me on there if you want. I hope you all have a good evening and I should have a new post up next week.
