November TBR

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:

November TBR

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass #1)

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)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.
