This weekly meme was created by Milana @A Couple Reads and Flavia @Flavia the Bibliphile to feature and discuss backlist books (books that were published six months ago or earlier) that are on your TBR and you have yet to read. Another purpose is for readers to find out about awesome backlist books that they might have never heard of before! For more information on the meme, and for optional themes, please see the info page here.

Title: Crooked Kingdom
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Publisher: Henry Holt
Publication Date: September 20, 2016
When you can’t beat the odds, change the game.
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 badly weakened, 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 the Grisha world.
So I got ahead of myself after seeing everyone talking about Six of Crows and decided to pick up the duology. I managed to read Six of Crows finally, but then I told myself I had to go back and read the Grisha triology first. Classic me, I got sidetracked. I reeeeally want to find out what happens next for the Dregs, but I also don’t want it to end. Leigh Bardugo is a mastermind when it comes to plotting and I can’t get enough of her writing.
Have you read any of Leigh’s books? Do you enjoy YA fantasy? Let me know in the comments!
