October’s Patreon poll theme is young adult speculative fiction (I know, it seems like it should have been Halloween/horror themed, but I couldn’t find many books on my shelves that seemed applicable!). The choices were as follows:
- The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns #1) by Rae Carson
- Hidden Huntress (Malediction #2) by Danielle L. Jensen
- Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1) by Leigh Bardugo
- The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson
- The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn #1) by Renée Ahdieh
The October book is…
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Kaz’s crew are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
The hardcover is a beautiful book, and I’ve heard such good things about this!
