Hello! Lately, I’ve felt the urge to re-read the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. If you’re not aware, the last book in the series came out last October and it was absolutely wonderful and heartbreaking. I had not read the series since I picked it up for the first time in 2015 and I desperately wanted to return to the world of magic, Fae, and wicked Queens. I will be posting about my thoughts on the last book sometime this week.
So far, I’ve read Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, and Heir of Fire. I’m reading Queen of Shadows right now and the wealth of little things that happened, that I forgot about, are filling in my memory of the story more completely than ever before.
If you haven’t picked up the series, the story follows an assassin, Celaena Sardothien, who had been enslaved and kept working in the mines until the King’s son chooses her as his Competitor in a competition being held to find the King’s Champion. What follows is an addictive tale of heroics, magic, and friendship.
This series of books is one I hold dear to my heart, not only because it is well written but also because I fell deeply in love with the characters, so much so that I tried to find them in real life as well. Despite the fantasy of it, the characters and their relationships feel familiar and not very different from relationships in real life which is quite comforting.
If you, like me, miss this wonderful world and would like to join in, please do. You can message me on Goodreads and we can do buddy read-alongs for the series.
I might be doing more posts of this type, talking about re-reads and reviewing them in a later post. If this is something that interests you, please comment below.
Hope you have/had a wonderful weekend!
