I recently finished The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, and it was definitely a wild ride. A CRAZY, OH MY GOD, KIND OF RIDE! After finishing, I started wondering whether or not I would reccomend this book to any of my friends. Well, the short answer is YES, DEFINITELY! So, I want to recommend it to all my wonderful followers who may be thinking of reading the series.
(If you would like to read my reviews for “Siege and Storm” and “Ruin and Rising” then definitely go ahead! Unfortunately, I began this blog after reading “Shadow and Bone”, so I don’t have a review up.)
These are the three main reasons WHY you should read this incredible series:
You Should Read This Because: The World Building Is Fantastic!
Seriously. The world building in this series is beyond amazing. It would definitely have to be one of my all time favourite worlds. Honestly, this is my expression every time I think about these books and the vast world it possesses:
The world that Bardugo has created is so rich, so real, so alive. She has created an interesting culture, religion, cults, societies, politics, etc. There is so much that Bardugo has put into these books to make the world so incredible. Honestly, every time that you open this book you pretty much stumble into the world head first and it feels SO. DAMN. REAL.
I am in love with this world. (Can you tell?)
You Should Read This Because: The Secondary Characters Are Very Interesting
If you have already read my reviews, you probably already know my opinion about the protagonist, Alina. She isn’t my favourite character — in fact, most of the time, she annoys me. However, the secondary characters are pretty interesting. There are so many fantastic secondary characters, though my favourite has to be Nikolai who first appears in the second book.
It is kind of disappointing that the main character isn’t spectacular (my personal opinion, guys!), but the secondary characters definitely make up for that. They are very three-dimensional, interesting and beautiful. They are characters that you will cheer for, cry over and, if you are anything like me, obsess over.
If you are looking for a group of secondary characters to fall in love with, don’t look any further!
You Should Read This Because: It Is One Of Those Series That You’ll End Up Binge Reading
Haha, I am being 100% serious. This series is very addictive and so well written that you cannot help but binge this series. If you are looking for something new, something fun, and something magical, then this series should be your next go to.
I wouldn’t mind reading the series again, soon. THIS SERIES IS SO BINGE-WORTHY! NO JOKE. Perhaps that will be something that I’ll do next year? Along with a Throne of Glass re-read, haha.
At the end of the day, I am certain that you will be shouting this:
And looking just as gorgeous as Emma Stone 🙂
So, yes. I would definitely recommend The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo!
