The Language of Thorns
by Leigh Bardugo

Books included(which need to be read in order): Languge of Thorns(not necessary but adds more to the story because of the ties mentioned in the short stories) Shadow and Bone, Seige and Storm, Ruin and Rising, (second series -->)Six of Crows, and Crooked Kingdom.

THIS SERIES IS BEING MADE INTO A TV SERIES ON NETFLIX SOON SO HURRY UP AND READ IT BEFORE IT BECOMES FAMOUS FOR ONLY A TV SHOW!!!

500,000/5 STARS!!

Another one of my top threefavorite books. This series is about people with powers known as grisha and how they've been fighting a war against a dark force. Also the persecution of the grisha add a more thrilling element.

I have to admit that the beginning of the second series does start a little confusing but about 100 pages in, it all makes sense and when you realize what was going on you want to cry and laugh and hug Matthias.

One of the best parts of the whole series, though, is the character development. At the beginning of both series you may hate a certain character but by the end of the first book they could be your favorite.

Also, the romance keeps the series at not just action.(Jesper and Wylan's relationship is the best part of the second series...just saying) 

The books are also amazing because Leigh Bardugo puts time and effort not just in her writing but also in creating the full experience for her readers. She creates maps and different languages and cooresponding countries where you can root for your favorite characters.

You can even become a grisha yourself!(I'm a heartrender!!) check out her website to take quizzes and become more and more attatched to everyone and everything.

Once again...my favorite characters:

1)Wylan(& Jesper)

2)Darkling(idc if he is the "bad guy" he is still precious and oml i love him so much)

3)David(&Genya's relationship)

4)Kaz

Least favorite characters(i hate these people sm):

1)Mal

2)Mal

3)Mal

4)Kuwei

Okay I promise I'm done ranting now(but go read it...it is thee BEST book series ever!!)
