Grishaverse Readathon Recommendations (Part Four)

In this last recommendations post, I’ll talk about the Grishaverse books, and which prompts they fit in. Some books have multiple editions, so I will explain which edition fits which prompt! Remember, if you decide to add the bonus prompt, you can double up with another prompt! The editions pictured are the editions I own, but I’ve added links to other editions that can fit prompts as well, in case you own those editions!

Part One | Part Two | Part Three | Part Four

Crooked Kingdom – Found family, featuring magic, about a heist/crime, featuring royalty, black cover (collector’s edition), featuring elements, body part on cover (collector’s edition).

King of Scars

Close friend group, featuring magic, about royalty, featuring elements, featuring a creator, Russian inspired book.

The Language of Thorns

A standalone, featuring magic, about royalty, fairytale (retelling), black cover (other edition), blue cover, featuring a creator, Russian inspired, Scandinavian inspired.

Of course, if you’re reading the Grishaverse books for the very first time, you have to start somewhere. I recommend you either start with Shadow and Bone or Six of Crows as those are the ones you can read without having read the other. Do not read King of Scars before you’ve read the S&B trilogy ánd the SoC duology. You can read The Language of Thorns whether you’ve read any of the other books or not because they are just fairytales from the Grisha world.
