Review: “The Beauty of Darkness” by Mary E. Pearson

It’s been a while since I read The Heart of Betrayal, so I had to read an in-depth recap of the events of the last two books. Good thing, too! So much stuff happens in this third and final book!

Review: “Tower of Dawn” by Sarah J. Maas

I was absolutely thrilled to hear we would have a novella just on Chaol. He’s one of my favorite characters from the series. And while I do have a few issues with him (mostly his prejudices), I love him above all, lol! So when Sarah announced the novella was turned into a novel, I was ecstatic!

Diving into Tower of Dawn was a bit like coming home in ways I never imagined it would be. Returning to the world of Throne of Glass and being introduced into a brand new world of the southern continent and its cultures and people… To reacquaint myself with these characters and to come out in the end as loving them more… I cannot imagine a better pleasure as a reader.

I’m going to try my hardest to keep this spoiler-free!

Review: “Monstress” Vol. 1 & 2 by Marjorie Liu

Oh my goodness, why have I just now discovered this lovely graphic novel? I’ve seen the single issue comics in comic book stores, and while it intrigued me, I never bothered to pick it up. But then I heard it was an East Asian-inspired, steampunk-esque, matriarchal fantasy world and hello, yes, I’m hooked.

So I decided to review volume 1 and 2 together. Truthfully, sometimes I struggle with writing a review of a single volume, especially since this is definitely a longer series. Sometimes I feel as if volume one just allows me to touch the surface of the world, while volume 2 drags me under. 😉

(Reread) Review: “Queen of Shadows” by Sarah J. Maas

Eeeek, am I glad that I reread this book! I mean, I knew I would love it going in, but there are certainly some things I missed. Goodness me, how could I forgot that all these characters were introduced? I read so many books each year that I suppose it’s easy to forget.

(Also, bonus fact: One year ago yesterday, I met Sarah J. Maas on the Empire of Storms book tour. You can check out that post here. 🙂 )

(Reread) Review: “Heir of Fire” by Sarah J. Maas

I’m seriously cutting it close here! I won’t be done with these re-reads until after Tower of Dawn comes out, but that’s okay! Now that I’m done with Heir of Fire, I’m going to start The Assassin’s Blade. My Books-A-Million order of ToD shipped a few days ago. I doubt I’ll get it before tomorrow or even the day of its release, but who knows!

Anyway, enough babbling… This review will contain spoilers! You can read my initial review on Goodreads here.
