It is day 5 of the 30-day book challenge, which means it is time to talk about a book that makes me happy! For this prompt I have chosen the Six of Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo, which, yes, is technically two books, but it’s my blog, so I can do what I want. I feel like a lot of people who choose to do this with me, will probably have some sort of meaningful reason behind why the book they chose made them happy, but I don’t. I have chosen the Six of Crows Duology purely because it is funny, action-packed and magical, which are all of my favourite things.
I read the Six of Crows duology earlier this summer when I was in a super dark place and they really were my light in the darkness. Books have been my light for years, but Leigh Barduo’s writing is just so phenomonal and his duology specifically will have a special place in my heart forever.
The characters are so real and raw and when I’m reading I really, truly feel as if I am part of the group and in the world and to me there is no better feeling. It is an intense, fast-paced duology with so many twists and turns and I didn’t predict a single one of them, which is very rare, so that is an achievement in itself, but it is also hilarious. The group dynamic that develops over the course of the these 2 books between the 6 main characters is amazing and you really feel as if you are apart of it. Jesper and Nina are hilarious in their own right and watching them tease Wylan and Matthias respectively is even more funny. I will stop nw because I can feel myself ranting and I am going to start repeating myself, but the bottom line is that these books are phenomonal (and I know everyone in the book community tells you that), but it is for a goddamn good reason because it is true! They are phenomonal and you HAVE to read them if you haven’t already!
I didn’t mean for this post to turn into me bugging you to read Leigh Bardugo’s books, but it seems I can’t talk about them without plugging her work. Seriously though, pick them…. please? Tell me what book makes you happy in the comments below!
Goodbye for now!
