Happy Month of Christmas-Eve!!! I don’t know about you but I have already started feeling the Christmas vibes. I blame it on all of the Christmas decorations popping up. I cannot wait for Christmas. I feel like the last two months of the year are the most exciting. Anyway, here is my TBR for November:
- Queen of Shadows, Empire of Storms, Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas- With the release of the last book in the “Throne of Glass” series, I am really behind in my reading. I NEED to finish these books ASAP. They’re about 500+ pages which is kind of intimidating but I have been reading a few pages from the eBook every day.
- The Adults by Caroline Hulse- Another huge book but a thriller this time. I’ve had this book for about two months and meant to start reading it however life got in the way. I am definitely looking forward to finally starting this book.
What are your reading plans for November? How do you feel about the festive season? Let me know below.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Celaena Sardothien (that name though… How does Sarah J Maas get her character’s names???) is an eighteen-year-old killer who is imprisoned in a mine for her crimes. Her only shot at freedom is to win a competition and work for the king- killing those who are against him. The very same king who basically ruined the lives of everyone.
I liked this book but found it overdone. Everyone kept fawning over Celaena and I honestly didn’t see her appeal. Um, hello she’s a killer.
I loved watching her train for the competition as she makes it clear that while many are obsessed with her looks, she is more than just a pretty face. She is fierce and deadly. It is easy to see why she was the most wanted assassin. I think this book sets the stage for the series really well but it is no “A Court of Thorns and Roses” (which is what I was expecting). Nonetheless I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy and is looking for a series for more than a few books out.
