Waiting on Wednesday: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

My TBR list is always growing and I thought it would be fun to share my anticipation for those books with all of you. This is not my own original meme; it belongs to Breaking the Spine. It specifically spotlights upcoming releases. As it implies in the title, I'll be posting this meme on Wednesdays. Please feel free to comment and let me know what books you guys are waiting on as well!




Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo        
Published by Henry Holt & Co.              
Publication Date: September 27th, 2016         
Pre-Order it: Amazon | Barnes & Noble                                        
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.


This is how I felt when I saw the cover: 




And this is how it feels like to wait for Crooked Kingdom to be released: 


How am I handling the wait, you ask?

Well, I have days like this:


some days are like this:


and other days are like this: 


So basically, if you need to ask why I'm dying for Crooked Kingdom, then you obviously don't know me very well. I love all of Leigh's work, and I'm excited dying for this book. I already know that it's going to be amazing but it could also very well break my heart! Either way, I want it...like yesterday xD



If you guys haven't checked out any of Leigh's books, I only have one question for you: WHY THE HELL NOT?!

    1. OMG YES YOU DO! I highly recommend reading The Grisha Trilogy first before Six of Crows. You can read Six of Crows first but I think you'll love it even more if you have the background from her other books <3

      Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Even though I know I don't have to, I have been waiting to read Six Of Crows until I read Ruin and Rising. I got spoiled for "the big thing" in R&R the day it was pubbed, so my excitement went down the drain. It is one of the books I am planning to read this summer when I am on vacation, so maybe I will read Six Of Crows then, too. I agree these covers are to die for. :)

    1. I always recommend reading all of the Grisha books before going into Six of Crows. You definitely don't have to but it will give you more feels if you do! I'm sorry that R&R was spoiled for you but it was my favorite of the trilogy so I hope that you still love it =)
