Who would be your fictional King and Queen? 👑
I still can’t believe it took me so long to read this duology 🤦♀️ I’m so glad I loved it as much as I hoped I would 😁
As for my King and Queen ... argh, there’s so many to choose from! 🤷♀️ my mind gets taken over by Sarah J Maas characters and Leigh Bardugo characters but 🤔
I think Rhys is definitely up there, along with the lovely Nikolai, but Kaz though 🤷♀️
Queens. Aelin is the sassiest Queen to ever live right?! But then Feyre ... Mor ... Nina ... HELP!
Who would yours be? ☺️🍁
Finally finished Crooked Kingdom! 👏 If you thought Six of Crows was a long one get ready for Crooked Kingdom😓 *Spoilers Ahead, you've been warned!*
So don't get me wrong, this is on the list of best fantasy/action book(s) I've read, but I do have some issues with this series. Leigh Bardugo is a gifted writer, especially with plot twists and gun-slinging action, but I feel like this duology should have been a trilogy. There were just too many loose ends to tie up so quickly. For instance, we know that Inej was reunited with her family and is now presumably sailing the seas punishing Slavers and rescuing the enslaved, but what about Kaz? If I was following he never actually made a choice? Did he sail off with Inej, stay in Ketterdam and help from there, continue to build another kingdom just to "burn it down", or continue to pull apart Pekka Rollins life "brick by brick"?
Another issue I have with his series is Kaz. I'm really conflicted because he's a bad guy (a really bad guy💀) that you can't help but love, and that's what the author intended. That can be very dangerous if we're looking at this in a real word situation. (Yes, I know it's a fantasy series but bear with me.) "I mean yeah, he's the leader of the most notorious gang in the city and he's probably killed a lot of people and is emotionally unstable, but he's so sweet too!" See what I mean? If we can justify loving someone like the fictional Kaz Brekker what's to stop us from loving someone like that in real life? It's a dangerous situation to be in and leads to very unhealthy relationships. I know a lot of people will probably say I'm over analyzing it, and I probably am, but that's just what I do😂 As I've said before, it is a fun read, don't get me wrong! I thoroughly enjoyed it! The action is amazing and the the gang's ability to escape any situation in the nick of time is always breathtaking, but let's not forget to put thought into which characters we glorify. The grey area between villain and hero is a dangerous place to be.
PS- Also why did Matthias randomly die?!?!?! #books#bookstagram#reading#leighbardugo#sixofcrows#crookedkingdom#inejghafa#kazbrekker#thedregs
[Six Of Crows 4/6]
Inej Ghafa 💀
'But I'll die on my feet with a knife in my hand'
Isn't Inej such a badass? Also I realized how hard it is to choose a quote for each of them, I mean there's so many perfect sentences in these books >< Which makes me already think about new SOC aesthetics for in a while...
#resenhabluecandy | Crooked Kingdom
Autora: Leigh Bardugo
Avaliação: 5/5 ⭐️ + ♥️
❝Mati en sheva yelu. Essa ação não terá um eco. Significa que não cometeremos os mesmos erros, que não continuaremos a causar mal.❞
Se esse não foi o melhor livro que li esse ano, eu realmente não sei qual foi. Eu esperei por um tempo para ler Crooked Kingdom porque não estava preparada para encerrar esse capítulo e dar adeus aos meus Dregs. Mas fiquei satisfeita e feliz com o final (apesar de algumas lágrimas que derramei), e amei cada pedacinho desse livro.
Em Crooked Kingdom, os Dregs estão correndo contra o tempo para (SPOILER DO PRIMEIRO LIVRO ⚠️) salvar Inej das garras de Jan Van Eck e pegar o dinheiro que lhes foi prometido no primeiro livro da duologia. Porém, as coisas começam a dar errado e só podem confiar uns nos outros para conseguirem alcançar seus objetivos. O livro é eletrizante do começo ao fim, os personagens estão sempre planejando e aprontando e lutando, é ação o tempo inteiro, é o coração do leitor na garganta da primeira à última página.
Os personagens que não tiveram destaque no primeiro livro como o Jesper, Wylan e Matthias, tem mais destaque em Crooked Kingdom e podemos conhecê-los mais a fundo, e é impossível não se apaixonar e se apegar por cada um deles durante a leitura, cada um dos Dregs tem sua personalidade, seu segredo, sua cicatriz, ao mesmo tempo que são uma equipe de bandidos inteligentes e fodões, são também adolescentes e humanos tentando encontrar o seu lugar no mundo.
A escrita da Leigh nesse livro é fenomenal, eu ficava embasbacada a cada plano dos Dregs, a cada maquinação louca da cabeça do Kaz, da força e coragem de Inej, da lealdade de Matthias, da simplicidade e inocência de Wylan, da sagacidade e ironia de Jesper e da irreverência e bom humor de Nina. São aqueles tipos de personagem que você se apega mesmo, e apesar de suas diferenças e até desavenças, é uma amizade que ficou marcada. Fiz uma resenha completa desse livro lá no Skoob e gente, não esperem, corram para ler essa duologia porque ela será a melhor duologia que vocês vão ler em muito tempo ♥️.

What are your most anticipated books of 2018?
We're nearing the end of the year and 2018's already gearing up for new promising reads. I luckily won a pre-order book from @authorkaylaolson's giveaway and I immediately picked The Cruel Prince by @blackholly! I am so excited 😁 Here are some in my wishlist:
✨ A Court of Frost and Starlight
✨ The Hazel Wood
✨ Restore Me
✨ Ace of Shades
✨ Dance of Thieves
✨ The Muse of Nightmares?? (I'm not sure if it'll be in 2018 but I'm in desperate need of book 2 and Lazlo and Sarai and Weep 😭😭)
It'll be a long wait for new @lbardugo books (Ninth House and King of Scars are expected in 2019) so a reread of Grishaverse books would happen eventually!
Let's take a moment and appreciate this beautifully designed No Mourners No Funerals journal by Hafsah of @_iceydesigns 😍💙 The quality is just perfect! I also have Bastard of the Barrel candle and it smells strong like Kaz! Use code: ALLEN10 to get a discount on etsy! 😉
