Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass, #5) by Sarah J. Maas

Empire of Storms (Throne Of Glass Series Book 5)


My rating: ☆☆☆☆☆


No Spoilers! Definitely colorful language abound!

45.0% "I am blissfully lost and in lust with this series. All that it has built so far...sigh. I haven't paused to update or review, the reading is just too good."
- Me



Oh man. You guys. I got totally lost in this series. I didn't even stop to review Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, or Queen of Shadows. I just didn't have a reason to pause, or much to say other than the following:







And then a lot of this, at the end.


As far as the next installment, I think I may just not. Honestly, I fucking hate Chaol. I also hate the spelling of his name. And his attitude. And how he just sucks the damn life out of everyone all the time, insufferably guilty for never knowing up from down or left from right. GET IT TOGETHER. WHY DO YOU EVEN GET YOUR OWN BOOK. BOOHISS ON YOU.


Over all this series is great, sure there are lots of things I could pick apart and rag on if I had my reviewer persona on, but frankly, screw that stuck up bitch. This was good fun, plain and simple. Let Maas take you away from reality for awhile, get lost in this truly gorgeous world she's created.

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1) by Sarah J. Maas



Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass series Book 1)

My rating: ☆☆☆

No Spoilers! Definitely colorful language abound!

Eh. Listen, lets be honest here, okay? I spent the majority of this book being annoyed by everything. Albeit mildly, but still, it was there under the surface, brushing up against the edges of my mind.

That being said, I enjoyed it sometimes? It took me awhile to read, I got to the last third of the book and I could only manage to stay awake for five pages at a time. What does that say about the book you are reading? You can't be arsed to stay awake during the "good part"? Ehhhhhh. Neat.

So why the three stars? Good question actually. I could feel more being built. There is a bigger picture, there is tremendous growth potential for all the characters, there is more.

Also, Choal and Dorian are the fucking worst. Me every time they were in a scene:


I'm going to read the next one and see what happens. There was one quote, very early on in the book that I can't stop thinking about. I'm hoping we learn more about it.

This was way more intense than I ever anticipated.

I'm going to say it now.

...


I loved this series way more than Cat and Bones.

THERE. I SAID IT.

The fourth and final is due out in 2016 but no over or details. Excuse me while I scour the interwebs for more info.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Sigh.

So some aspects got hella annoying here, but mostly I didn't care. I stated in the review of the first one I read these two in one day so it all sort of blurred together. I think I started this one around 8pm and was done around midnight, I don't even remember my husband putting my kids to bed.


*Shrug*

Also, I may be like 40 pages into the 3rd one already so um. I gotta go, bye.

Once Burned (Night Prince, #1) by Jeaniene Frost

Once Burned (Night Prince, #1)Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


All the stars!


What can I say? This is just one of those books that speaks to me, but I knew that would happen. Vlad has been my favorite in the Cat and Bones series, so, duh.

True story? I read this one and the second one in the same mother flipping day. Completely and totally absorbed. Infatuated is more like it. This was a rare reading moment for me, where all critical thinking turned off and I can't even think of anything to criticize.

I'm 100% certain that if I were to reread this at some point, I'd feel differently. BUT RIGHT NOW WHATEVER WHO CARES.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Have you ever clapped and giggled after finishing a book?

I have.

I'm going to say it. This is my favorite IA series. The Edge books were my favorite, but the way these two have tied together has soothed a long standing irritation.

If you felt wronged by lack of closure on Jack and George, read these now! You will be delighted.

Kate and her world has always had an end, a brilliantly conceived end that I eagerly await to enjoy and mourn. The Edge brought something new, and once again highlighted IA's ability to create magic that excites the mind, but it never felt finished. There were simply too many possibilities. This series has a thick thread is joy woven in all the pages, you can feel how much IA loves writing it. It's an intoxicating experience for a reader who is intimately familiar with an authors works. Although, if you never read anything by them, you would not be disappointed, it's wonderful through and through. I can't wait for more!
