Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2) by Leigh Bardugo

That’s right, y’all! I have finally decided to be brave and pick this book back up. It’s the book that put me into a reading slump last month, but I think I’m finally in a place where I can try it again. I’m really in the mood to read right now, so I think it should be alright. I read a few chapters last night and I was actually interested in what was going on. YAY!!!

What did you recently finish reading?

  • American Fire: Love, Arson, and Life in a Vanishing Land by Monica Hesse – 4 stars, review tomorrow
  • Lost Stars (Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens) by Claudia Gray – 5 stars, review to come

So I had a really good reading week, not going to lie one bit. My first dive back into non-fiction started off with a bang with American Fire. This story was so engrossing and written in such a way that you actually feel a part of the community. If you’re a fan of true crime or real stories set in rural America, I really recommend this one. I should have a full review up tomorrow, too!

By now, I should just realize that Claudia Gray is a science fiction goddess. She was made to write novels set in the Star Wars universe. Y’all, if you have never really been interested in reading Star Wars, weren’t sure where to start, or just plain love science fiction in general, READ THIS BOOK! It’s so well-written and is a great story built around two amazing characters. Just do it.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m actually not sure what I’ll be reading next. I think I’m going to be doing this really fun tag/post that I have done once before when I couldn’t choose what book to read next. It was such a great idea and really helped me from picking up something that I wasn’t really interested in. You can read about my first experience with The Try A Chapter Tag, HERE.

  2. Ooh I haven’t heard of American Fire before, but it seems interesting. I’ll have to watch out for your review! I’ve been thinking about picking up a Star Wars novel or two and Lost Stars definitely seems to be the frontrunner for where to start, haha. Glad to hear you enjoyed it so much!

    1. It was really good! I thought it was very well written, almost novel-like.. Also, cannot recommend Lost Stars enough if you’re looking for a Star Wars novel to pick up. It’s a great place to start. The Aftermath trilogy is really fun too!
