Yay!!! So I am back and will resume my blogging schedule as always! If any of you guys are interested in seeing when I do my blog posts, you can check out one of my earlier posts here.
So I decided to go back to blogging with a new book review post!! Recently I just got into the Throne of Glass series, and I fell in love!! Fantasy/Adventure is probably my favourite genre of books, and I love a good adventurous world!!
Anyhow, so I read the sequel to Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, which I am going to do a review on!! I also read Heir of Fire, and once I read Empire of storms I will be caught up and anxiously waiting for the new sequel!! Right now, I am reading the prequel, which is the Assassin’s Blade! Now let’s get into the review!!
First off, Crown of Midnight was just AMAZING!! I loved the book until closer to the end, but I will get into that later!
Sarah. J. Maas is just so talented – she rights so well and paints such a picture of Caelena, Chaol, Dorian, and every character in the book! I loved how in depth she got into the description of each character, and while some authors know how to make great characters, there is almost always a lack of plot. This novel definitely kept me turning the pages over and over well into the night. (Might I add they were mostly school nights, so this book really was that good!! 🙂 ).
First off, I adore Caelena. Her hardcore attitude and her wit is very amusing to read, she just seems so powerful and independent!! I also loved Chaol in this book, because his character shone a lot more through this novel!!
So, if you are planning on reading this book, I have to warn you of two things:
- You might die emotionally in the end
- You might die from the sheer awesomeness of Sarah J Maas’s story line
This book really took a number on me, and I didn’t really have anything bad to say about it except for the ending, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read the novel yet!! So, if you have read the novel and you are ready to hear my rant, read below!!
SPOILERS BELOW THIS LINE!
Okay, I think I did a pretty good job warning you, so if you decided to read on, read at your own risk. (It’s like the restricted section in the Hogwarts library! 🙂 )
Okay, so I totally ship Caelena and Chaol, and I was so happy and overcome with joy once they finally got together!! They became my OTP in the novel, and I loved them!! But, if you have read the novel and finished it, then you know how it ended for them.
Needless to say, I literally died and took a break from reading the novel once I found out that they were not a thing anymore. Seriously. It hit me that hard.
It may seem foolish that I totally emotionally died after reading what seems to be the end of Chaolena, but I get attached to characters really easily, and it felt like they were so perfect together!! 🙂 So I’ll see how the books go, and my hopes are up! But after reading Heir of Fire, I think I ship another person with Caelena now, but I am not so sure! 🙂
Okay, and that’s it from me!! I actually managed to cook Christmas Eve dinner without burning the house down, and with no help from my family!!! I just hope the food tastes as good as it looks!! To anyone celebrating Christmas/Christmas Eve and Hanukkah, plus any other holiday I haven’t mentioned, Happy Holidays!!! And Happy New Year!! I wish all of you guys the best winter holidays and the warmest wishes!!
Merry Christmas Eve, and once again, Happy Holidays!! 🙂
Also, keep on reading!!!
