Your Top 12 Book Club Books

six of crowsThis feature is sponsored by 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, a sharpshooter, a runaway, a spy known as the Wraith, a Heartrender, and a thief. Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist.

Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
