13 Thrilling Books Similar To The Six Of Crows Series

I like fantasy, but I struggle when I read fantasy. Do you feel me? Now, why you ask? The length of some books and the complexity of the plots, so when I tell you that Shadow and Bone is a series that I was able to enjoy and read, I had to find other ways to get into this genre!

I enjoy fantasy. I want to read bigger books like the Wheel of Time or Mistborn, and Elantris, but I chicken out, a lot of the time. So if you enjoyed Shadow and Bone, and Six of Crows, are done with the Netflix adaptation and more!! Then let’s check these books out!

They might not be the exact same book, because that would be boring, but they share a vibe, a feeling, and a mood, so why not?
