I’m going to be honest with you, I don’t feel like I fit the typical description of most bookworms on the internet. I’m not an overly voracious reader who consumes hundreds of books every year. Instead, I like to read books in small doses over long spans of time, meaning I’m lucky to hit the double digits of books read by the time the year is up.
I’m just someone who is always in the midst of reading something, even though I’m not often reading. (Does that make any sense?)
Anyways, the point I’m trying to get to is that because I don’t read many books each year, I get really excited when a book (or series) I devote my time to ends up blowing me away. I become relieved that the book (or series) I’ve chosen to read wasn’t a waste of time, since I’ll read so few in a year, and feel compelled to shout about it so other on-again off-again readers like myself get a chance to read only good books too.
Today’s post is dedicated to one such series I want to shout about: the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo.

FIVE FUCKING STARS!!!!!!
Is this book perfect? Not necessarily. But I loved every second of it.
Okay then. It seems my abbreviated thoughts on this book revolves around five stars and the word “fucking”. How professional of me.
Let’s dig a little deeper into why I love this book, shall we?
Warning: There is some mild spoilage below. Nothing that I would consider to ruin the plot of the book or anything like that, but if you want to go into it knowing only what the blurb reveals, you may want to turn back now or read the headings but nothing else.
