I have started a very casual project of reading some classic YA books that have helped build the genre into what it is today. Throne of Glass was the first book I read for this little project, and I have to admit that I assumed I’d hate it. I’m (now) very vocal about my grumpy feelings toward A Court of Thorns and Roses, the first book in Sarah J. Maas’s other series, and figured some of those themes I strongly disagreed with would carry over into Throne of Glass. So you can imagine my surprise when I actually found myself enjoying Throne of Glass! Is it brilliant? No, I don’t think so. But damn, is it a compulsive readable. I buddy read this with brilliant author, blogger, and YouTuber Josie Jaffrey and I think that was the best way for me to tackle this book. I’d highly recommend the audiobook because of the story’s pace and plot -- your house will never be cleaner.
This review contains loads of spoilers, so don't read on if you intend to read the book. Also, for fans of the book, please don't hate me! I'd love to open up a discussion about it because I know so many people love it. Tell me your thoughts!
It’s my favorite time of the moth! Here’s a look back on my bookish activity this month. Let’s see if I stuck with my April TBR strategy:
Happy Friday, everyone! I considered not doing a weekly wrap up because I'll be posting my April round up on Sunday. But I really like doing weekly wrap ups, so here we go.
The four-day week has come to a close and it’s time for the weekend once again! Here’s a roundup of my week.
