Waiting On Wednesday No. 164: Crooked Kingdom, by Leigh Bardugo

This is a weekly event hosted by
It showcases future releases which
we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!!

Here's my choice for this week!

Crooked Kingdom
(Six of Crows, Book 2)   
Hardcover, 448 pages
Henry Holt & Co.
September 27, 2016
Fantasy,Romance, Young Adult Fiction

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. 

Why I'm waiting on this one!

Again I find myself in the position of owning the first book of a series, which  I still haven't read.....And again it's because I find myself overwhelmed with SO, SO many great books to read! Plus, I'm not the world's fastest reader by far! Well, I'm adding this one as soon as it releases, anyway! I know that Six of Crows will be AWESOME, and this one is sure to be just as good!!

What do you think of my choice?

  1. That's a pretty awesome cover and this series seems to be so popular... it does sound fun based on the synopsis. It's hard to wait so long for a book we need now! lol

    1. Hi, Greg!

      I agree -- this is an AWESOME cover! The one on the first book was also great. And yes, I the synopsis, does sound like fun.

      Since I haven't read the first book yet, I can wait, but it would definitely be very nice to have this book in my hands now, anyway!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!! :)

  2. I've read several reviews of book 1 and this sounds like a fun mix of characters! I'll have to give this series a try soon.

    1. Hi, Becky!

      Yes, the first book is supposed to be AMAZING! So I'm really excited about this second one!! You should definitely give this series a try.

    1. Hi, there! Yes, you definitely should! Thanks for stopping by!! :)

  4. I have yet to read this author but I hear so much about her. And this book looks So good. Adding the first one to my library list now. Thanks for sharing :)

    Here's my WoW.

    1. Hi, Lillian!

      I read the first book in the Grisha trilogy, "Shadow and Bone", and really liked it. I need to finish those books, too....sigh....

      I've heard that "Six of Crows" is AMAZING, so I'm very excited about this second book! I should really start on the first book already, or maybe it would be better to read them back to back!

      You're very welcome for the share! Thanks for commenting!! :)

  5. I haven't read this or the original series, however, I think the covers for this one and the last are great. It's amazing how many series I would like to get to but then never manage to. Hope you love this when you finally start it!

    1. Hi, Barb!

      Well, I've only read the first book in the original series -- "Shadow and Bone" -- but I LOVED it! I need to read the other two, and then I'll start with this new series.

      I have the very same problem of having SO many series I want to get to.....there's never enough time!

      Yes, I hope to be able to get to this series sometime in this I KNOW I'll love it, too!!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!! :)

  6. I haven't read anything by this author. I hope you enjoy reading this book.

    1. Hi, Sandra!

      Oh, you should try the Grisha trilogy! I've only read the first book, "Shadow and Bone", but I do want to read the other two. Bardugo is an AWESOME writer!
