“Iibraries were full of ideas—perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.“
So as some of you may know...I'm an addict when it come to Sarah j Maas books. Do me and the hubby went to Barnes and Noble and I just did a bad things...I regret NOTHING! I got the mini series of throne of Glass! That's Harry Potter for size references but YAH!!!!
me recommending my favourite books^^^
Heard so much about this series! About to dive into the first book! 😁
The word here is POTENTIAL 😐 this was between a pick/so so. I see that this series has the potiential to be very interesting and there were short moments of intrigue;but this first book was not a very good example of that potential.The main character is supposed to be a badass but is actually more annoying than anything and there is a very FORCED love triangle.Littens say just make it to book 3, so I‘m in for the long haul. 🤔☺️

About: This story follows Celaena, a young assassin, in a castle full of corruption, tyranny, and ritualistic demons.
Why I chose this book: I chose this book because when I saw a young female assassin in the blurb it inspired me to read it. From those few words what I took from the book is a book filled with action and fantasy.
“Wyrd, help me” ??!!😶
I‘m doing... the eye roll... 🙄 🤦🏽♀️
Many Littens says this is the worst book in the series and to just get past this one and it‘s amazing etc. I hope that‘s the case 😅lol. I‘m a HUGE fan of the ACOTAR series, so I‘m hoping I‘ll at least LIKE this one as well...
So excited to get my Throne of Glass Bookish Box Part 2. I loved everything I received. Not pictured are two gorgeous dust jackets for Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows. I couldn‘t get them to lay flat for the picture. If you want to see everything you get in the box up close check out https://readinginthewildwood.com/2019/10/14/throne-of-glass-bookish-box-part-2/
Read this book as was recommended by you fellow Littens and per usual, you did not disappoint in the suggestion! Flew through this book and loved the characters and world it is set in. I've been reading more books this year with female leads and love adding this one to the list. #fantasy #youngadult
This is such an amazing book! I am a huge fan of fantasy and I have read a lot of series but this one stands out amongst them all. Maas crafts beautifully complicated characters with a reason. She presents strong female heroines that take their destiny into their own hands. Such an amazing book! It is definitely a must read.
I absolutely LOVED this series, AND Maas‘ other series Court of Thorns and Roses. I really loved the way she tells this story. I‘ve re-read it several times. I almost wish she would go back to them as an after story. I want to see where they‘re at after everything, after the war the healing and clean-up, Dorian and Manon, all of it!
I devoured 1 book and I‘m already on book 2 almost 50% done! I highly recommend #ThroneofGlass series by Sarah J Mass. Go read it!
Quick question.... Is the Throne of Glass series as good as A Court of Thorns and Roses? I have seen mixed reviews and was just curious on everyone‘s opinions.
1. So I picked Throne of Glass but honestly it was hard to just pick one!!!
2. Most recent move? Yikes, I haven‘t been to see a movie since my almost two year old daughter was born 😂
3. Prawns! I‘m not sure why but cold cooked prawns, got to love them!
4. Three cousins, one girl and two boys.
5. Spreading the love! #FriYayIntro @howjessreads
Just finished reading this series and I cannot praise it enough. Admittedly it starts off a little slow, and I didn‘t really find myself getting fully immersed in it until the 3rd book. By the end I had fallen in love so completely with all the characters that I didn‘t want it to end. A really well told story with excellent character development, interesting plot twists, and some very steamy love scenes. Loved it!

SJM‘s ToG series was my first babystep into ANY kind of fantasy. She was my favorite author for a solid decade, and introduced me to such a bright and uplifting genre full of so many crazy amazing worlds to climb into. I will always be grateful.
(Current favorite author if you‘re wondering: Jay Kristoff)
Wow...just wow. The only series to get me through my book hangover with Sarah J.Mass A Court of Thorns and Roses. Of course it also gave me another incredible hangover but also and extreme love for strong fierce female leads. Still not completely over this. Absolutely cannot wait for more from this author.
My first post. Still making my way through this book
Got my second bookish tattoo today! This book and this series mean so much to me and I‘m so in love with this one 📖😍
Re-reading this so I can finish up the series. 4 hours seems like a lot with how much I‘ve already listened to. I thought I was closer to the end than that.
In other news, I‘m back! I thought this might be the best outlet for all of my reading updates. I don‘t quite as many book-related Instagram updates now that my students have started following me.
1. Yes, a made-up one 😁
WYRD as in o my wyrd (it's a Sarah J Maas thing)
2. All the time, especially since English is my 2nd language 😊
3. supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (Mary Poppins)
4. Back to question 1... WYRD
Seriously go read Throne of Glass

Thanks @wanderinglynn for creating this prompt.
📚 Honestly still not over the Throne of Glass series (and of course Harry Potter will always have a special place in my heart)

💖 Will do!
My little cat decided to hang out on top of my bookshelf tonight. She gets to be a little destructive and has chewed on some books (mainly one I have for my nephew). She also turns off her hearing I think while she does this.
Super fast paced and sets the scene really quick in the first chapter, this is a great competition story with a lot of fun elements thrown into it. I loved the ACOTAR series but even though this doesn‘t grabbed me as much, it's still a fun ride and I'm starting to really want to know more about the history of this world! I'm definitely ready to see what happens next with our Queen of the Underworld.
After my first time speaking at an education conference today, I decided that I deserved a new book!
Obviously I still have over 30 books on my tbr shelf but I'm sure I'll slot this in somewhere - any fans? Loved the ACOTAR series ☺
I actively disliked this book. Celaena's been in a prison camp for a year doing hard labor, being whipped and starved, and watching people around her die and now she gets to the palace and she's focused on the prince's outfit? I found her character superficial and unrealistic. Not that I have to like the characters in the books I read, but I have to like the fact that I don't like them. I think Sarah J Mass isn't for me and that's okay.
This was a total blame it on Litsy as well as blame it on one of the booksellers at Barnes & Noble that has been telling my how amazing this series is. Thank goodness for Book Outlet having the whole series super cheap!
