Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers spotlight an upcoming title release we are eagerly anticipating.
I spent a lot of time thinking about whether or not I wanted to participate in any blog memes like this one or if I wanted to stick strictly to unique posts, but I honestly miss interacting with the community through stuff like this. I don’t think I will be participating every single Wednesday, but who knows. Anywho, this week the title I am waiting on is….
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Ketterdam: a bustling hub of iSix of Crows by Leigh Bardugonternational trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction–if they don’t kill each other first.
I found out about this book probably much later than most. I am obsessed with Ursula Uriarte’s Instagram. She posts the most beautiful book photos on Insta, and I’ve been finding a lot of upcoming books I want to grab through the ARCs she receives. Earlier this summer she posted a picture of this book and it immediately caught my attention. I don’t know what exactly it is about the title that struck me, but it just sounded like something that would be right up my alley. When I read the synopsis I knew this was one to add to my TBR list; I’m a sucker for books about an outlaw crowd. I’m writing one myself at the moment, and I think this is exactly the type of book I need to read to get me inspired to keep writing.
I’m a bit torn between buying the book and just borrowing it from Barnes and Noble (I work there. It’s a thing. I’m not stealing books, I swear). Honestly I think this is one I’m probably going to take the dive and just go ahead and buy. It has such a pretty cover and I just want it on my bookshelf (we’ll pretend for now that I actually have room for it).
Six of Crows releases September 29, so for those of us waiting for this one there are only a few weeks left to go! What do you think? Will you be running out to grab this book when it releases or waiting for it to hit libraries?
