That intimate moment between you and the book you have just read the last words of, where you sit there taking in the enormity of what you have just finished.

i’m afraid of getting older
scared i’ll never write anything
worth reading again
that i’ll disappoint the people
who are counting on me
that i’ll never learn how to be happy
that i’ll be broke again one day
that my parents will die
and i’ll be alone in the end
— Rupi Kaur, Home Body

why the Six of Crows duology is good
a list for people who have not read it, by someone who adores it
canon disabled characters. yes, that's right. characters. more than one.
a fat main character, known for her flirtatious nature and beauty, and never brought down because of it!
chronic pain rep!
seriously!! two disabled main characters!
an ADHD main character
good rep of trauma (of all sorts) and its effects
and also PTSD
(one of the two characters has dyslexia. the other has a break that never healed and uses a cane!)
G A Y
B I
literal found family.
make that found CRIME family!!
interracial relationships (two!!!)
interesting plot!
really, really good character development!
death to the "I can fix him" trope
heists. so many good heists.
*TWO* DISABLED MAIN CHARACTERS, GUYS
the six main characters are all incredibly likable in their own ways
In conclusion: there is something for everyone in this duology. Please read it!

"You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive."

We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken— crime and punishment by fyodor dostoevsky.
