Blog Tour- CROOKED KINGDOM by Leigh Bardugo Featuring Jesper and A Giveaway!


Hey All! I'm so happy to be kicking off the CROOKED KINGDOM blog tour! I love Leigh and all of her books! I get to feature Jesper today I love him and that hes completely loyal to his friends and one hell of a sharpshooter! Oh and check below for a special giveaway!

Haven't heard of CROOKED KINGDOM? Check it out!


Title: CROOKED KINGDOM
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Release Date: September 27, 2016
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Pages: 560
Formats:  Hardcover, eBook, audiobook
Find it: Amazon, B&N, iBooks, Goodreads
Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn't think they'd survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they're right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz's cunning and test the team's fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city's dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of magic in the Grisha world.

And on to Leigh's post!




 Leigh Barguo on Jesper

"I think one of my favorite things about working on Crooked Kingdom was getting to know Jesper and his family better. Jesper's childhood and his relationships with his mother and father are so important to the way he views himself and his abilities now. We also get to spend a little time in Novyi Zem in Jesper's flashbacks, and it could not be more different from Ketterdam "

  45. Jesper, in my opinion, is the shadiest dreg. I feel like I know more about Wylan and he doesn't even have a POV in Six of Crows. Excited to know more !!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I really wanna know more about Jesper's family and past. Do they know about his "abilities"? I'm curious.

    Crooked Kingdom, once you're published, I will find you and I will read you.

  50. OMG, Jesper is my absolute favourites. I can't wait to get his backstory! It also blows my mind to think that Mal and Alina met him before Six of Crows when they went to Novyi Zem

  58. Jesper is my favorite character! I'm simultaneously excited and terrified for this book, but I can't wait to learn more about Jesper's background!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I am so bloody eager for Crooked Kingdom. I utterly loved Six of Crows!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I am SO hype to read more about Jesper. His Fabrikator powers? His cool guns? His farmboy past? His fat crush on Wylan? SIGN ME UP

    ReplyDelete
  61. Jesper is awesome! I liked his attitude so much! I can't wait for the next book!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think Jesper is a bit less memorable than the other characters in the book. I'm curious to learn more about him in the next book.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I loved getting the tidbits of Jesper's past life in SoC. Seeing that he is one of my favorite characters, I hope we get more of him in Crooked Kingdom. I hope we get to see some of his homeland, that would be so cool.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm interested to find out more about Jesper's backstory! I don't feel like we got to know all that much about where he comes from in the first book.

    ReplyDelete
  65. love Jesper flirting with Wylan. It’s so cute! I hope we get more in dept with his character in the next book!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Looking forward to learning more about Jesper in Crooked Kingdom, can't wait for the books release.

    ReplyDelete
  67. More about Jesper and his past?! I didn't know I could get more excited about CK! Jesper and I share the same sense of humor so I really love his character

    ReplyDelete
  68. Jesper reminds me of Leo from Heroes of Olympus, sometimes. They're both giddy when it comes to the things they love, and they're just brilliant at it. Though, there are some downsides to their attitude.. winkwink Jesper's gambling addiction..

    ReplyDelete
  69. I loved Jesper in Six of Crows so much, I can't wait to learn more about his backstory in Crooked Kingdom! ~ Danielle D.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Yes, Jesper!! I'm so excited to learn more about him. When you first meet him in Six of Crows, I would have never guessed he's a farm boy. I need to know more!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I really hope that Jesper does more things as a Grisha in CK!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Poor Jesper has really gotten himself into trouble. We only catch small glimpses of Jesper allowing the gravity of his situation to sink in, to be rational and accept responsibility for what he's done to his father's farm financially. Like Kaz, he's blundered by being so naive, so careless, but he's trying to dig himself back out of trouble with his job. I wonder if the desperation will make him more reckless in Crooked Kingdom, will steal his humor. I guess we'll see. - scolt81

    ReplyDelete
  73. I reaaalllyyy want to learn more about Jesper's past! I feel like he is such a mysterious character!! Can't wait to read Crooked Kingdom!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I seriously cant wait to start reading this book (I now OFFICIALLY have it in my hands!~)

    Absolutely loved Jesper and how he fantastic he is.
    Need to learn more about him (and his love life ;)

  76. Crooked Kingdom sounds so interesting! I will definitely read it.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I feel like we didn't get a whole lot of Jesper's back story in SoC, so I'm excited to see more of it in CK!
    ~Grace Radford-Tingley

  78. Jesper reminds me in a way of all of the impulsive, physical, easily distracted boys I've taught over the years. He's very believable.

    ReplyDelete
  79. IIt's finally here! I'm excited/scared!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Jesper is so precious, and reading Crooked Kingdom is reminding me of why I love him so much!
