Book Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

Book Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

Can I just start off by saying, “OH MY GOD.” Because honestly, that’s how this series makes me feel time and time again. Empire of Storms is by no means perfect, but it is nonetheless further cementing the series’ status as one of my all-time favorites that will be reread to death and recommended till the end of time. I’m assuming that if you’re reading this review, you have a base amount of knowledge about the Throne of Glass series and you’ve probably read up to at least Queen of Shadows, so if you’re extremely averse to any kind of hint or spoiler, you may […]

Book Review: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

Book Review: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

Roughly one year after its release, I finally got around to Queen of Shadows. To say that the hype surrounding this series is intimidating at times would be a massive understatement. And though I remembered absolutely loving the previous books, my hatred for hype scared me off for a while. But I dove in, doing a full series reread and getting to Queen of Shadows riding my full tidal wave of feels – and that was a very good decision indeed. Rereading definitely helped me so much. I mean, this is a massive series, the books are getting steadily more chunky, and there’s just so […]

Book Review: The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas

Book Review: The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas

I’ve been a fan of the Throne of Glass series for a long time, but I had always skipped the novellas… till now. I’m just not always a novella person – I’m naturally skeptical about how much they add if they were cut from the actual books for a reason. Well. This is probably the best collection of novellas I’ve ever read, and I think they definitely add to the series in a positive way. The Assassin and the Pirate Lord: 4.5/5 This was a fantastic way to dive back into the Throne of Glass universe. It instantly reminded me of everything I love about […]

Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors (2015 Edition)

Top Ten Auto-Buy Authors (2015 Edition)

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. This was one of the very first Top Ten Tuesday topics I did on the blog – all the way back in 2013. I wrote up my list before looking at that post, and hilariously only ONE author made both versions of the list. I suppose it makes sense – in the meantime I’ve read at least 250 more books and gotten to know so many other authors… and tastes change. These authors I’ve all read multiple books from (if not their entire oeuvres), and something […]

Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Ever since I read Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass, I knew that she was an author to keep up with. This woman is a storytelling master, creating such awesome characters, plots, and worlds that you just can’t help falling in love with. With each book of hers that I read, my love expands even more, and A Court of Thorns and Roses cements her as one of my all-time favorite authors. This creative Beauty and the Beast retelling is an absolute treat. A Court of Thorns and Roses is brilliant as a retelling. I wasn’t quite expecting it to stick so close to the […]

ARC Book Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

ARC Book Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Sarah J. Maas delivers again with Heir of Fire, the third installment in a high fantasy series that is turning out to be one of my absolute favorites. At 565 pages, this book is HUGE – but I loved it and almost wish it were longer so I could have stayed in that world. And I know this book hasn’t even been released yet, but can I has the next one plz? I’m only slightly addicted. Heir of Fire is what I’ll fondly call the character and world building installment of the Throne of Glass series, because seriously. Sarah J. Maas steps it up and […]

Recap: New York + Book Expo America 2014, Part 2

Recap: New York + Book Expo America 2014, Part 2

I hope you all enjoyed part 1 of my adventures in New York earlier this week! But let’s face it: now we’re getting to the main event – the conference itself and all the events and bookishness surrounding that. I hope I can do my adventures justice. Day 5: Wednesday, May 28th Officially, Wednesday was not a BEA day, as I elected to skip the Book Blogger Conference (probably a good thing too, considering the drama at one of the panels, which ended up ripping a divide between book bloggers and booktubers). But Gaby and I woke up at a decent hour and went down […]
