Book Traveling Thursdays- BECAUSE I’M HAPPYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly meme that was created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. All you have to do is to post covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group. You have to post the original cover, the one that exists in your country, and finally your favorite covers and least favorite ones.

This week’s theme is: International Day of Happiness was celebrated a few days ago!! Choose a book that brings you joy.

I would definitely say HARRY POTTER, BY J.K. ROWLING, a.k.a. THE QUEEN, but I have chosen this series so many times for this weekly meme! That’s why that, this time, I’m posting about… The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern! I actually mentioned it in another weekly meme, Top 10 Tuesdays, because it’s a book that I FREAKING LOVE, but I don’t talk much about it! But here it is now!!!

This books is absolutely wonderful! It’s about star-crossed lovers that have to fight against each other to see which one is the best magician! But it’s so much more than that! The whole concept of the Night Circus is wonderful, the characters are spectacular and the writing is superb!

Can you believe I haven’t watched Inside Out yet? I know, I’m a mess! But I know she is Joy, so I really had to post a gif of her! So cute!

 


Original cover: It seems that the left one is the US cover, which I love, and the right one is the UK cover. Portugal decided to have the UK one, by the way!


Cover from your country (Portugal): Here it is, as I said! It’s the one I have!

O Circo dos Sonhos


Favorite cover(s): I really love the Portuguese and UK edition, but I think my favorite is the US cover! The Circus looks amazing! And I think the hand is pretty simbolic! If you have read it, let me tell that I think this is totally about the ending!

The Night Circus

Bonus: This Indonesian cover looks wonderful! The elements are all there and I love these shades of red and gold! It looks so good!!!

The Night Circus


Least Favorite covers:

El circo de la noche
Spanish edition: As an illustration, it looks amazing! However, I don’t think it fits… I mean, it has nothing to do with the plot! There are some elements that are right, tho, like the colorful circus, the night, but i think that’s pretty much that.

 

The Night Circus
This one is so meh!!! What the hell? This is such a magical book, but the cover looks too simple and there’s nothing about a circus or magic!
Ночной цирк
Russian edition: It’s not bad, but it’s not good either! The stars and the background are good, but I would take off those illustrations!

 


That’s it for today! Which books, or what books, make you happy?

Top Ten Tuesday: I SWEAR I LOVE YOU!

Heyyyyy, bookish people! I hope you are enjoying your Spring Break! I may be at home, but I don’t have a break… I actually have to study for 2 exams and I am still writing my essay about a Portuguese boring book…. Ughhh….

 

More like me and college… *sighs*

I should have posted this yesterday, but I didn’t feel like writing something yesterday. After all, I tried to study something and I didn’t do much, and I felt guilty…. When I feel guilty, I get upset and that’s why I didn’t post this yesterday…

By the way, I’m going to talk about 5 books, not 10. It’s already a little bit late here and I would like to read the last pages of that boring Portuguese book I’m reading for college… *sighs*


 

Here’s a little introduction about the meme, which was created by The Broke and the Bookish:

“Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.”
Those paragraphs were taken from The Broke and the Bookish. For more information, here’s the post.


This week’s theme is: Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough/In A While (inspired by freebie topic).

YASSSSSS! LET’S DO THIS!!!

  1. Between Shades of Gray, by Ruta Sepetys: For those who know me, I’m a slow reader, which means I can take 4, 5 days to read a book, even though I’m enjoying it. I just like to be a slow reader, you know? But this time, I only took 2 days! Yup! This book was AMAZING! That’s why I bought Salt to the Sea, Sepetys’s newest book.

    Between Shades of Gray

  2. The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern: This book is so, so good! I think I read it 2 years ago, so I really need to reread this this summer! I read it in Portuguese, but when the translation is done properly, you can see that the author has a good writing. Morgenstern definitely has a magnificent writing! I wish I could buy this book in English! Hmmm, who knows?
    The Night Circus
    This cover is pretty! I WANT IT!

     

  3. The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) and The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2), by Rick Riordan: Can you believe that these are the only Rick Riordan books that I have ever read? I loved them so much, so I don’t understand myself! I mean… WHY HAVEN’T I BOUGHT HIS OTHER BOOKS???

    The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)  The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #2)

  4. The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave #1), by Rick Yancey: I usually don’t like characters like Cassie because they are usually too annoying for my taste, but I actually really liked her! I kind of have a bond with her since I also have a younger sister and I would definitely do everything to get her back! Also, this book is SO FREAKING COOL! YASSSS, ALIENS!

    The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)

  5. Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen: I watched the movie 3, 4 times before I read this book (yes, shame on me, I know). Of course that I told myself that I really had to read it and I’M GLAD I MADE THIS DECISION BECAUSE THIS BOOK IS MAGNIFICENT! SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CLASSIC! It’s such a pity that I don’t talk much about it!

    Oh, and I have also watched the book-to-tv show adaptation, you know the one with Colin Firth as Mr.Darcy? Oh, it’s so good!

    Pride and Prejudice


    Well, that’s it for today? What about you? What books do you love, but don’t talk much about?

Book Traveling Thursdays- Father’s day is coming!

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly meme that was created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. All you have to do is to post covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group. You have to post the original cover, the one that exists in your country, and finally your favorite covers and least favorite ones.

This week’s theme is: Father’s Day is celebrated in a couple of days in a few countries! Choose a book with a awesome father figure.

Ok, this one was hard because I don’t have many books that have fathers in the story, which is kind of strange, right?
Anyway, I thought that I should choose Hazel’s dad, from The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green. Why did I choose him? Well, read this:

“You are not a grenade, not to us. Thinking about you dying makes us sad, Hazel, but you are not a grenade. You are amazing. You can’t know, sweetie, because you’ve never had a baby become a brilliant young reader with a side interest in horrible television shows, but the joy you bring us is so much greater than the sadness we feel about your illness.”

Goddamnit, the FEELS!!!!

Can I just say that I loved the actor who played Hazel’s dad in the book-to-movie adaptation? He was awesome!

Ahahahahah!

Original cover: I love blue covers, so this one is totally one of my favorites!!!


 

Cover(s) from your country: There are 3 different editions:

This is the one I have and I totally love it! I actually love it more than I love the original cover! That means alot!
I actually don’t know why they published a limited, exclusive edition, but I still love it!
Of course they had to publish a new edition with one of the movie posters, but it still looks wonderful!

Favorite covers: All the Portuguese ones, the original one, and the following:

Colpa delle stelle
I usually don’t like the Italian covers, but this one looks lovely!
Hvězdy nám nepřály
Czech edition: I love the fact that they kept the idead of the original cover, but they still kind of changed it! It looks wonderful!
生命中的美好缺憾
This Chinese editon looks so pretty, too!!!

Least Favorite Covers: OMG, there are some that are really terrible…

 

Dėl mūsų likimo ir žvaigždės kaltos
Lithuanian edition: This is what I call as “lazy cover”. What the hell? It has nothing to do with the plot!
Colpa delle stelle
What???? I was so proud of the Italian publisher when I posted the one above, but they also had this one? WHAT THE HELL??????? This is terrible…
Een weeffout in onze sterren
Dutch edition: Another “lazy cover”…
The Fault in Our Stars - Salahkan Bintang-Bintang
Indonesian edition: Ok, I like this cover as a piece of art, or a cover for a kids book… But for TFIOS? Nahhhh. But it still looks cute!

Ok, that’s it for today! Who are your favorite fathers from literature? Or father figures? 😀

Hey, what do you think of A Court of Mist and Fury’s excerpt?

ATTTENTION: Little spoiler of A Court of Thorns and Roses if you haven’t read it. However, I think they aren’t really that important, but I’m warning anyway.

Guyyyyyys… I just saw a post somewhere (I’m not going to tell where) that was basically about hate towards Sarah J. Maas. It was someone who read the new excerpt of A Court of Mist and Fury, the sequel of A Court of Thorns and Roses, which I freaking LOVED!!!

Before I start saying my opinion, you can read the excerpt here: http://www.ew.com/article/2016/03/16/sarah-j-maas-court-mist-and-fury-excerpt


Ok, the post basically was saying that Sarah J. Maas is “once again” doing buls**t with her characters. If you read the excerpt, you can see that Feyre is kind of complaining about the fact that Tamlin doesn’t wake up after she has a nightmare. The Tumblr person said that Sarah J. Maas is turning Tamlin into a “bad guy” because of the other guy in the love triangle: Rhysand. It seems that she has done something similar to this in Throne of Glass series, but I can’t give my opinion about that since I haven’t read those books yet.

But, anyway, why are there people already hating Maas because of some lines from an excerpt? The book isn’t even out yet and they are already hating Maas for what she wrote! First of all, she IS THE WRITER, which means she can do whatever she wants to do with her characters, rather you like it or not. Writing is something creative and it belongs to only one person (ok, more than one if we’re taling about a book that was written by many people, but that’s not the point, of course).

Second, guyyssssss…. Have you forgotten that ACOTAR trilogy is all writing from Feyre’s POV? She says that Tamlin doesn’t wake up when she wakes up after a nightmare, but what if he does and she just doesn’t know because she is sleeping, for example? I mean, we all know he is a caring man. However, honestly, I think we don’t really know much about Tamlin. We all know that their relationship happened really quickly and we don’t get to see much of his personality. Actually, I think we see more of Rhysand than Tamlin. But anyway, don’t forget that this is Feyre’s POV, which means that we don’t know what the other characters are doing while she is talking about her life.
People are saying that Maas is now turning Rhysand into a good guy, while Tamlin is turning into a bad one. I mean, I’ve always thought that Rhysand isn’t really a bad person, although he has done bad things. But hasn’t Harry Potter taught you some lessons? Just because you do bad things, does it really mean you’re bad? of course I’m not giving excuses for Rhysand. I really like him and I think that he’s a very interesting character, but he really has done some bulls**t… But hey, we still don’t know much about him. It’s funny that people love to talk about toxic guys, but then if we talk about a problematic girl, you say that it’s a pitty and she just needs help? And no, don’t tell me this doesn’t happen, because I know it does. I’ve seen many people, specially on Goodreads, that want to kill a guy that has done bad stuff, but if it is a girl, we should feel pitty for her and think she needs help and love… But I’m not going to see anything else about this because manybe people are going to attack me… But aren’t we all human beings? Yes. So, why should we be judged by our gender?

Third, if you hate love triangles, fine. Of course, I accept that, after all, sometimes, I don’t like certain love triangles. But if you are going to hate Maas just because she loves to write about love triangles, read something else and stop hating her just because she writes something you don’t like. It’s childish and it’s totally against the creative process of a writer. A writer should write whatever the hell they love to write. And one thing is to criticise a writer when you talk about their writing and plot. But it’s completely different if you hate someone because they wrote something you weren’t expecting and you didn’t love. I mean, I didn’t like how Allegiant, by Veronica Roth, ended, but after a while, I started to think that she did the right choice because she followed her heart. She followed her instinct as a writer. And I applause to her and Sarah J. Maas for writing whatever the hell they want because it’s their stories.

In conclusion, one thing is to have an opinion and talk about it in a polite way, you know, without hate and being disrespectful. Another thing is to write an opinion withouth good arguments and a text full of hate. I mean, of course there are times that I don’t agree with the writer when they change something drastically. But, as someone who wants to be a writer, I understand! It’s all about what you love to write about! It’s all about sharing your stories, your creative part of your soul! It’s about being happy with what you love to do!!!

If you think that Sarah J. Maas is indeed changing her stories again, it’s fine. I respect that, but I think when someone is sharing an opinion, you have to have good arguments and it shouldn’t be hateful. For example, I do think I’m being kind of rude in this post and I’m sorry about that. I don’t mean it, really!

Ok, once again, I’m sorry if I sound rude, but I really wanted to share this. Also, GODDAMNIT! I NEED A COURT OF MIST AND FURY NOW!!!! Maybe I should pre-ordered it… I don’t know if my dad is going to like this idea ahahahah.

Top 10 Tuesday: My Spring TBR

Heyyyy, bookish people! How are you? I hope you are having a good week! Mine has been busy, which is why I am only posting this meme now. Stupid college… It doesn’t let me enjoy the things I love :c

 

Here’s a little introduction about the meme, which was created by The Broke and the Bookish:

“Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Those paragraphs were taken from The Broke and the Bookish. For more information, here’s the post.

Anyway, let’s see what I have to post this week: Ten Books On My Spring TBR! SPRING IS COMING!!!!!!


Many of the books that I mention here are for college, the others are the books I hope I read, even if I have a lot to do for college… *sighs*

  1. Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley: I have to do a presentation about this book next month, which means I’m going to read it during Spring Break! It’s actually a book that I have always wanted to read since I started to have Literature classes in high school. Now, I have to read it for English Culture, one of my college subjects.

    Frankenstein
    This is the edition I have!
  2. Antigone, by Sophocles: For college, of course! Another one I have to read this Spring break! It’s for Classic Culture! Of course I’m going to read it in Portuguese.

    Antigone

  3. To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee: I don’t know if I’m going to read it this Spring, but I wish I could because everyone loves this novel and I want to know why! Also, I would like to talk about Harper Lee in my English classes. I would like to do a presentation about her, since it’s been almost a month since she past away. R.I.P, Harper Lee!
    To Kill a Mockingbird
    This is the edition I have!

     

  4. The Island of Dr. Moreau, by H.G. Wells: We are going to talk about this author in English Culture, too!!!

    The Island of Dr. Moreau

  5. Utopia, by Thomas More: Another book for English Culture. This one is going to be quite an adventure! May the odds be ever in my favor!

    Utopia

  6. Hard Times, by Charles Dickens: Another one for English Culture classes! I think it’s the last one. I really want to read Charles Dickens’s books, especially Great Expectations. But this one seems interesting, too!

    Hard Times

  7. Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1), by Marissa Meyer: Finally, books that aren’t for college! I REALLY WANT TO START THIS SERIES BECAUSE IT SEEMS EVERYONE LOVES IT! I mean, c’mon, sci-fi+retelling+amazing diverse cast?  BRING IT ON! I hope… college, give me time, be nice!!

    Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

  8. Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2), by Marissa Meyer: Well, if I want to read Cinder, of course I also want to read this one!

    Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2)

  9. Salt to the Sea, by Ruta Sepetys: I REALLY WANT TO READ THIS ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!! UGHHHHH, WHY DON’T  I HAVE TIME???? I NEED SUMMER!
    Maybe I can read this during this semester because the chapters are really short, which makes the reading experience lighter. But I don’t know…

    Salt to the Sea

  10. Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow Rowell: OMG, this book has been on my shelf since April 2015 (yessss, almost a year) because I always have other books that I have to read first, or I simply want to read first. But I hope that, if college allows me, I read it this Spring!

    Eleanor & Park


Well, that’s it for my list! What about your Spring TBR? Do you have many books to read for college/school? What about books you WANT to read? 😀

Book Haul · Bookworm stuff

Look what I bought!

Heyyyy, bookish people! I hope you have a wonderful week!

 

Here’s a cute gif from Tangled to cheer you up!! Damn, now I want to watch it again! **

 

Do you know what happened this weekend? Well…. I bought a book! Yayyyy!
It’s funny because I told to myself that I wouldn’t buy books this month, but… ops!

Anyway, this is the book I bought:

 

20160312_194140

 

It made me so happy that my local bookstore had this book! I’m glad that they are kind of putting more english book on their shelves. After all, there are many people here (in Portugal) that are starting to read more in English and it’s great that bookstores are noticing that. Besides, they would only lose money if they didn’t sell English books. However, my local bookstore is definitely lacking in diversity… They have too many unknown authors, some classics (not that much, tho), and they don’t even have completed series, even though they are selling books that belong to a series! Ughhhh….

Besides that, I’m glad they are slowly getting better.

Here’s the Goodreads synopsis:

‘Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.’

A lawyer’s advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee’s classic novel – a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the thirties. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man’s struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an anti-racist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition.”

See you tomorrow!!!

What should I order first?

Heyyyyy, bookish people! Happy weekend! Well, not for me because I have so much to do for college… And yet, I’m here proscratinating…

 

Yayyyy…

Anyway, have I told you that I ordered new books this week? Yup! I ordered 2 books, but one of them is actually a gift for my best friend’s birthday! And what about the second book? Well, it’s for me of course! Do you know what I ordered?

 

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)

 

Yessss! I have finally got the chance to order Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo! I can’t wait to read it because I really enjoyed Shadow and Bone (the first book of Leigh Bardugo’s trilogy, The Grisha) and I know Six of Crows takes place in the same world as Bardugo’s trilogy. However, I wasn’t really planning on buying it because there are other books I really want to buy first (like the last two book of The Lunar Chronicles series, by Marissa Meyer). But when I was choosing the gift for my best friend on Book Depository, I decided to check if they had dropped prices of some books I want. At some point, I wrote Six of Crows and I was pleasantly surprised! You know why? BECAUSE THE HARDCOVER USUALLY COSTS 17,51€ (19.535907 USD) AND I ONLY PAID 11.23€ (12.529311 USD)!!!! SUCH A GOOD PRICE FOR A HARDBACK, DON’T YOU THINK???

 

I am so happy, you have no idea! Thank God I check Book Depository in that day!


 

Well, let’s talk about something else… I would like you to help me, please! Once  have order all the Lunar Chronicles books, I also would like to order another book, but I don’t know which one! If you have read the books on my list, could you help me choose? I mean, I don’t know when I’m going to order, but I would like to decide anyway.

Here’s the list:

A Darker Shade of Magic, by V.E. Schwab: There’s so much hype around this book and the author has released the sequel, A Gathering of Shadows, already and everyone loves it! They even said that the sequel is better than the first book, even though A Darker Shade of Magic was really amazing! So, I would like to read it!

I really, REALLY LOVE the US edition, but the UK are cheaper, so if I’m going to buy ADSOM, I have to order the UK edition. Anyway, I still love it!

 

The Young Elites, by Marie Lu: This one is also loved by many people, although I have seen some readers that have given 2 or 3 stars. However, many people say that the second and final book, The Rose Society, is wayyyyyyy better! Also, the main character is an anti-heroine! I don’t think I have read books with anti-heroines, so I would like to read this, too!

The Young Elites (The Young Elites, #1)
Such an awesome book! The clouds look amazing and the font is awesome!

The Raven Boys, by Maggie Stiefvater: Lately, especially on Instagram and Tumblr, many people have talked alot about this series and I’m always like: WOW, I really need to buy this because it sounds so intriguing!

 

The Raven Boys


You see, I really want to read all of them, but which one should I buy first?
I hope you help me! If not, thank you anyway! ^^

 

Yup…. *crying forever*

 

 

Book Travelling Thursdays · Bookworm stuff

Book Traveling Thursdays- Badass Heroine!!! YESSS!

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly meme that was created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. All you have to do is to post covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group. You have to post the original cover, the one that exists in your country, and finally your favorite covers and least favorite ones.

This week’s theme is: It was International Women’s Day!! Choose a book with a badass heroine.

OMG, there are so many badass heroines out there! It’s difficult to choose!

Ok, for this meme, I have already posted many Harry Potter covers, so I’m not going to choose Hermione for this, even though SHE IS REALLY BADASS! I have also talked about The Hunger Games, so I’m not going to pick my amazing BADASS GIRL ON FIRE, KATNISS EVERDEEN! Actually, I’m going to do this in a different way: since today was such a big day for Throne of Glass fans, I’m going to choose Celaena Sardothien. I haven’t read this series yet (I have the first book on my shelf, tho!), but everyone says that Celaena is FREAKING BADASS!!!

12935353

So, let’s do this!


Original cover: OMG, when there are real people on Fantasy book covers…. Well, it’s usually not good… I love the colors, but the girl… I don’t know, it just doesn’t fit. I am not saying that just because she looks “girly” or whatever, she can’t be badass. She kind of looks badass, honestly. Anyway, it just doesn’t look good. I have to point out this “girly” thing because there are some people that support this original cover and they use this argument. Still, I don’t like it.

As I said, you can be girly and badass at the same time!


Cover from your country (Portugal): THEY FREAKING PUBLISHED THIS BOOK HERE AND THE COVER IS GORGEOUS! I already had the Canadian edition (it was a Canadian cousin who gave it to me), but I still bought the Portuguese edition of Throne of Glass because it looks SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!

SO BADASS!!!!

Favorite covers:

The Portuguese edition, of course!
The one everyone sees everywhere!
Die Erwählte (Throne of Glass, #1)
There are times that I don’t like German covers, but this one looks amazing!
Trono de cristal (Trono de cristal, #1)
This Spanish edition looks simple, but it looks beautiful, anyway!

 

Least Favorite Covers:

Cam Şato (Throne of Glass, #1)
Turkish edition: I like her face, but that glass… Hmmm…
Tronul de Cleştar (Tronul de Cleştar, #1)
Romanian edition: Hmmm…. Hell no. It looks weird.

And the worst cover goes to…. Hebrew edition! WHAT IS THIS??? WHAT THE HELL? SO…. UGHHHHH!

כס הזכוכית (Throne of Glass, #1)

 

That’s it for today!!! Byeeeee!

Throne of Glass news!!!

Heyyyyy, bookish people! How are you?
Today was a big, wonderful day for those who love Throne of Glass series, by Sarah J. Maas! From her, I have only read A Court of Thorns and Roses (a.k.a ACOTAR), which is the first book of her new trilogy, and I FREAKING LOVED IT!!!!! I CAN’T WAIT TO READ THE SECOND BOOK!
But let’s talk about the title for the 5th book of Throne of Glass series, shall we?

Here you can read the Goodreads synopsis of Throne of Glass, the first book. I am only posting this one because the synopsis of the following books, of course, have spoilers! Here it is:

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her… but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead… quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.


This series has SO MUCH HYPE!!!! There are so many people that love it! THey love the writing, the characters, the plot, EVERYTHING! And it seems that the first one, until now, it’s the weakest book. Can you imagine this? I hear/read so many good things about the first book, and you’re telling me that it gets better and better in the other books? FABULOUS!

As I said, I have only read ACOTAR, but I really cannot wait to read Throne of Glass! I have it already (I’m talking about the first book, of course) and I haven’t read it yet because there are always other books that I have to read first. But I really want to read it this summer!

Ok, enoug of this, now! Let me show you why there are so many people that are happy with the Throne of Glass news- The fandom already knows the title for the 5th book, which doesn’t have a cover yet. However, here is the title:

OMG, Sarah, you really know how to create such beautiful titles! Here are the titles of all the Throne of Glass books: Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadowns, and now Empire of Storms. And the novellas’ book also has such a badass title: The Assassin’s Blade. DAMN, GIRL!!!!!

By the way, here is the release date of Empire of Storms: September 6th 2016.


So, guys, what do you think of this news? Do you love the title? Do you love her books? 😀
