I was highly recommended by many of you to read Six of Crows and its continuation, Crooked Kingdom. I was later informed it was a spin off of another series, which has 3 books. Then I was made aware that there’s another 5 stories in between of those 3. So I asked for one book recommendation and ended up having to read 8 books before that one and another one after. 10 books. Alright, then.
