Six of crows by Leigh Bardugo
If you are looking for an answer as to whether you should pick Leigh Bardugo’s, Six of Crows or not then my answer is A BIG YES and that you shouldn’t wait to meet KAZ, our central character and his team of outlaws. Let me start the Book review of Six of crows with a quote straight from the book. “A gambler, a convict, a wayward son, a lost Grisha, a Suli girl who had become a killer, a boy from the Barrel who had become something worse.” This quote perfectly sums the framework of our book as these are the literal six of crows that you will be spending time with in this book.
White Cat by Holly Black
The book has a pretty interesting plot line and is quite different from the usual paranormal books you will read and that alone makes it a worthy book at least for me. The story even though has lots of layers, is also simple enough to make it exciting and worth sticking around till the end. I don’t know what is it about the language, but it definitely eases you into the mood of the whole book but let me just clarify here that i m not that greatly impressed with it though.
Trust Me, I’m Lying by Mary Elizabeth Summer
So by the power vested in me by none other than myself, I hereby declare this book to be the mother of all cliché. Phew! Now that it is out of the chest, I will also say that this book had been fantastic. At least for me. Frankly, this book will not be of everybody’s liking for the fact that it is a combination of everything you have read and loved and has practically nothing new to it except for a kickass heroine and combining this with various other factors, the book has definitely moved on to my favorite shelf.
Grift by Jason Mosberg
The author definitely seems to be well versed with the city of Las Vegas and its nuisances. The way he narrates and portrays the world of Grift that resides parallel to the glimmer of Las Vegas, leaves me confused as to whether be suspicious as to how well he knows all the trickery and modus operandi of the same or to be amazed at his research skills. The fact is that the author does truly justify the title Grift and brings forward a face of Las Vegas that you have never seen before but sometimes that is also the problem as he kinds of halts to explain the background details or history a bit too often but luckily does not do in a fatal way.
Headhunters by Jo Nesbo
HeadHunters is a good thriller provided you pay no heed to the initial blanched narration and technical descriptions. It takes a while to pick up the pace but once it does, the pace remains intact but the deviation from the main events is throughout and i am not sure whether its Jo Nesbo or Don Bartlett who could not bring the magic in his translation.
How to Lead a Life of Crime by Kristen Miller
The book is brilliant and the brilliance comes from the core plot that is enhanced by a gradual and good paced development. The language is simple and engaging and so is the narration. The true star of the book is it characters. Yes, the main character / narrator definitely shine but so does each other character that is being introduced. Every one of them is shaped properly with a proper past and present and none of them are inserted by force for passing characters. The central character is charming and witty which means our author is too (right?)
Of course there are many more book and we have just listed few of the ones that we have reviewed on our blog. Which one is your favourite out of these?
