Book Boyfriend: Kaz Brekker aka Dirtyhands (Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo)

So I've seen this meme floating around many book blogs, but initially I got the idea from Reading Lark and they got this meme from The Unread Reader. I've enjoyed the meme so much that I will also be joining in on the fun but now on Mondays. Welcome to Book Boyfriends everyone!

  • Seventeen
  • Dark hair
  • Eyes almost as dark as bitter-black coffee
  • Sharp jaw
  • Lean build
  • Corded muscle
  • Two tattoos on his arm, one for the Dregs and the letter "R"
  • Pronounced limp due to an old injury
Why He's My Book Boyfriend:

It seems like the men of the Grisha world are meant to belong to this meme. Kaz is a bit of a darker choice for a boyfriend than I usually pick but OH. MY. GOD. I can't help myself. He's cynical, cunning, sly, and a bit of a sarcastic ass. Alright, more than a bit but he's self-aware at least! He's definitely not someone you want to cross and someone you definitely want in your corner. I'd love to explore more of his dark side *wink wink*

Actor to play Kaz:

Instantly, this is who I pictured as Kaz. 

But seeing as this is is a unrealistic choice, my next choice is Nick Bateman. I haven't seen him act but he's hot and roughly could fit Kaz's description. 

Quotes from and about Kaz:

1) "Why do you wear the gloves, Mister Brekker?"

Kaz raised a brow. "I'm sure you've heard the stories."

"Each more grotesque than the last."

Kaz had heard them, too. Brekker's hands were stained with blood. Brekker's hands were covered in scars. Brekker had claws and not fingers because he was part demon. Brekker's touch burned like brimstone--a single brush of his bare skin caused your flesh to wither and die.

"Pick one," Kaz said as he vanished into the night, thoughts already turning to thirty million kruge and the crew he'd need to help him get it. "They're all true enough."

2) "When everyone knows you're a monster, you needn't waste time doing every monstrous thing."

3) "Doesn't matter much now, does it?" replied Geels. "This gets ugly, I'm shooting from close range. Maybe your guards get me or my guys, but no way you're going to dodge this bullet."  

Kaz stepped into the barrel of the gun so that it was pressed directly against his chest. "No way at all, Geels." 

"You think I won't do it?" 

"Oh, I think you'd do it gladly, with a song in your black heart. But you won't. Not tonight."

Geels' finger twitched on the trigger.

"Kaz," Jesper said. "This whole 'shoot me' thing is starting to concern me." 

4) "He was afraid for you." 

"Kaz isn't afraid of anything."

"You should have seen his face when he brought you to me."

"I'm a very valuable investment."

Nina's jaw dropped. "Tell me he didn't say that."

"Of course he did. Well, not the valuable part."


5) The shadow of something dark moved across Kaz's face. "If it were a trick, I'd promise you safety. I'd offer you happiness. I don't know if that exists in the Barrel, but you'll find none of it with me."

Just like with my review of this amazing book, I can't put any more quotes or I will spoil it for all of you. I definitely don't want to do that. Maybe after it's publication date I'll add more quotes. Until then you can check out my review of this book here where you'll find a few more quotes from Six of Crows as well as my shameless worshipping of it.
