I really enjoy Sarah J Mass‘ works, but must have read them in too rapid succession, because first it got on my wick when Rhys ‘crooned‘ so much, and now Aelin keeps ‘drawling‘!
Bk10 of February is done! The 5th in the TOG series, it sets up the final showdown in Kingdom Of Ash plus answers a lot of questions & ties up loose ends. The ending still got me, even being a reread😢 Onto Tower Of Dawn(even though it‘s not an Aelin book!) #BookspinBingo #PennyPerPage #SeriesRead2022 #ChunksterChallenge #FinishingTheSeries #Booked2022 #KickTheSlump #readathon
It felt a bit like most of the book was more getting people into places than advancing stories, but that meant spending time w/new characters that I enjoyed (like Elide & Lorcan) and revisiting returning characters like Aedion & Lysandra (side note: Aedion delivered my fave line in this book). Even Rowan was less annoying this time. The stakes didn't seem stressful, but I didn't mind, and the ending was excellent. I'm looking forward to the next.
The last two months have been absolute hell for me, my anxiety got out of control, my reading focus went to shit, and sleeping on the sofa was better for me then sleeping in bed.
But now, I'm starting to feel better, coming back into reading by #rereading another of my favourite series. I'm finally glad that I'm starting to be able to chill out and enjoy some peace. I cant wait to start #empireofthevampire once I complete my #throneofglass reread
And with this book, SJM loses me a lot. Aelin is conniving, and after 5 books her lack of communication is so frustrating. Especially when combined with SJM‘s habit of springing “known” info on the readers, it was a slog. Also, the repetition is a little annoying. “Rutting” isn‘t a great word, and absolutely does not replace the f-word well. Just say f*ck with your whole chest, please.

Book #26: I love when distant characters‘ stories finally merge!! The big reveal felt like something we should‘ve known all along, very much Harry Potter vibes in that way. The ending is gut wrenching, but I think I‘m most mad that I have to read a book that takes place in parallel with characters I don‘t care as much about before I can get to the final book in the series. This one finally delivered on some spice as well.
😭😭😭 Oh this book had me going y‘all! From Lysandra‘s sea dragon fight to Rowan finding out they were mates in the most heartbreaking way ever...uhh I died. With surprise after surprise from Mrs. Fireheart supreme and literally everyone hooking up with someone this book is ramping up for a killer end of the series. Dashing out to read the last two immediately. #sarahjmaas #lorcansucks #empireofstorms
THE EXECUTION THAT WASN'T ONE THAT TURNED INTO A FIGHT AND THEN AND ESCAPE - AND THEN YOU EXPECT ME TO JUST NOT KEEP READING ABOUT MANON WHO JUST PASSED OUT???? EXCUSE MEEEEE
I NEED TO KNOW NOW WHATS HAPPENING - ALSO THE TRUTH BOMB THE MATRON OF THE BLACKBEAKS GAVE US ALLLLL LIKE 🥺😬
Wait wait wait sososo I just realized that both Erewan (earwax) or whatever and then. Aedion and Lysandra made a comment/ note of Aelin becoming or being a god or god blessed but two gods.... soooooo is this a thing? Is she a damn god or Demi god or goddess
Cause I am behind this theory. (also i have minor proof - not sure its true tho)
I put this on hold 2 days ago & it had a 3 week wait. Look what came in today! I‘m trying to finish about 6 other books before this reread. Once I start it (and get to that ending 🥲) I will have to keep going through books 6 & 7. Going to try end wait until next weekend to start.. but we‘ll see.
Any Maas fans out there? Which do you prefer: #ACOTAR... or Throne of Glass? #tog
Queen Of Shadows is gonna be hard to beat, but I'm looking forward to seeing what SJM is gonna do next.
Another good book to a great series! I did find this book dragged on a bit but I kept going with it. Some of storyline was confusing but I got it once the mirror was involved. The ending of this book tho, holy shit I was STRESSED, it was amazing!!! It was so hard to read but also to put down!
I‘ve read the blurb to the next book and I‘m a bit annoyed about its theme after the ending to EoS but I‘m hoping it will pick up once I start reading it
Such a great series
Onto the next.
I‘m currently reading the last book and I think it‘s safe to say THIS particular installment was one of the most memorable... if not THE most memorable of the entire series!! The absolutely EPIc battles scenes!!! And a few characters really came into their own and emerged as fierce fighters. It‘s like the whole series was leading up to the awesomeness that was THIS book. I‘d give it more than 5 stars if I could! ♥️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️/5
This book took my breath away. The fights, the characters, everything was just breathtaking. Except for the "R-rated" scenes. They were cringing as hell. Sarah literally used the word "velvet-wrapped steel". But aside from that, the plot has improved considerably, and the ending is mind-blowing. Can't wait to read the last one!
#Two4Tuesday thank you for the tag @MoonWitch94
1.) 👸🌧🌬💨🌪 and 🛕🌤
2.) Yes because you have to read the recipe to understand it.
I tag @erinreads @Erinreadsthebooks @vkois88 and anyone else that wants to do it 😁.
I‘ve wanted to re-read Kingdom of Ash as soon as I finished it the first time but it was such an intense book that I‘ve been putting it off. To push myself into it I chucked EOS on my #bookspin list knowing once I started I wouldn‘t be able to stop. It worked well, I enjoyed the re-read so much, both of the official bookspin EOS and end goal of KOA. I could rant for days about individual scenes but to be simple I‘ll just say hard pick 😍
