Six of Crows + Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
I’ve already started reading Six of Crows, and I can hardly put it down. IT’S SO GOOD. Definitely one of those books that I wish I had read sooner. (Let’s just ignore the fact that it’s been sitting on my bookshelf for over two years… 😅) And I can honestly say that I love every single one of the Dregs. But I’ve heard that Crooked Kingdom will devastate me, so I’m enjoying my happiness while it lasts.
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
This book has everything I love — a gorgeous cover (and illustrations that change as you read each story), Leigh Bardugo’s magical writing, and fairy tales and folklore from the Grishaverse. This collection includes “The Too-Clever Fox,” which will be perfect to read before finally diving into King of Scars. (Nikolaaaaai. ❤️)
King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
This is one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and it has taken all of my willpower to set it aside until I’ve finished my Grishaverse read-a-thon. 🙃 I’ve avoided synopses, comments, reactions, spoilers… Everything. But I’m ecstatic that our favorite mischievous king is getting his own duology! And I’m excited to see where this story will take him.
Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
Another of my most anticipated reads of the year, this book sounds beautiful and dark — like, really dark. (MY FAVORITE KIND. 😈) And I was lucky enough to win an ARC in a giveaway! Roshani Chokshi said on Goodreads, “This book is for everyone who shipped Alina and The Darkling,” so… *cough* I have a feeling I’m going to really like it… 🖤 As an added bonus, the author — whose tweets bring me much joy — is also from Northeast Ohio!
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I haven’t read this book since high school, so I’m curious to see what I’ll think of it 10+ years later. I’m positive I’ll still be Team Elizabeth Bennet, but will I swoon over Mr. Darcy? 🤔 (Fun Fact: In high school, I was less interested in Mr. Darcy than I was in Jane Eyre‘s brooding Mr. Rochester. This probably tells you a lot about me as a person.) This is the February pick for the #ArdentlyAustenBookClub readalong on Instagram. You can find more info here!
What will you be reading this month? Anything romantic? 😉 Let me know below!
