Featuring amazing heists, lovable characters, great friendships, and lots of waffles, Six of Crows is by far one of my favorite books of all time. The plot and world felt almost tangible, and after reading, I found myself longing to travel to Ketterdam. This extraordinary book has female characters that seemed real and believable, and they were people who I could root for in the story. Many fantasy novels tire out the "damsel in distress" trope, as they do the "overprotective boy who will kill you if you tough his girl" cliche, but this book does neither. Inej and Nina are powerful protagonists, as are Wylan, Jesper, Kaz, and Matthias. If you like heists, LGBTQ+ representation, hilarious friendly banter, and the occasional waffle, you will love Six of Crows.
