1. What’s the name of your current read?

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

“Above his unadorned white shirt was a fine cobalt-blue jerkin trimmed with gold. She would have snorted, but he did look rather good in his knee-high brown boots. And his leather belt did go nicely  – even though the hunting knife seemed a bit too bejeweled.”

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

I’m only a few pages in so far, so I’m not 100% sold on the world just yet. From what I have experienced so far, it seems that the ruling kingdom of the area Celaena is currently in uses their wealth too frivolously and is too hard on conquered people. So, with that being said, at this moment it’s a no.

I totally know that I’m WAY behind on reading this series (5 years too late), but I wanted to hear why others who enjoy SJM’s the A Court of Thorns and Roses series liked about the Throne of Glass series. Obviously, I’m a fan of the aforementioned series, but I need to keep reading ToG to see how I feel about it. It definitely starts off with a high-fantasy vibe which is WAY different than how ACOTAR started. I also have a crack-theory that the Fae that were driven out of the lands of Erilea are the same Fae that control the lands of Prythian.

1. What’s the name of your current read?

Ensnared by Rita Stradling

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

“The banging on Alainn’s door came twenty-six hours after she missed dinner. Twenty-six hours in which she’d lain in the bed, unmoving in her underwear. At some point, she realized the necessity of food and found a sandwich with spongy and cold melted cheese waiting in its drawer. Later when she’d checked the restroom, she found all the womanly supplies she needed. It seemed that Rosebud 03AF planned to keep her humanity a secret. Alainn still hadn’t decided on whether she should.”

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

There hasn’t been much outside world development to make a choice based on that – this is a book set in the future, and I’m totally down for robots one day to help with day to day tasks and such, but so far I’m not sure I’m not sure if I want to live in this future or not. 

Is anyone else reading Ensnared? I was able to receive my copy to read from NetGalley and cannot wait to see how this book unfolds as a futuristic version of Beauty and the Beast.

1. What’s the name of your current read?

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

“ Charm is all well and good,” she said, straining the sausages and setting them on a towel to dry. “ But charm doesn’t put bread on the table. Charm goes out with his friends at night when he could be showing his son to all the great masters himself.”

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

At the current place of where I’ve read, it’s a no. It looks to be set in old world Germany and it wasn’t the nicest place for women if you weren’t well off. Plus, the goblins that are inhabiting the winters of the areas just give me a super gross feeling, no amount of charm from the Goblin King would be able shake that feeling as he’s a bit creepy himself. I don’t know if I’m pulling my feelings from an analysis of Christina Rossetti’s “Goblin Market” poem that I read in college or what. I just can’t shake this gross feeling I have about the world the story is set in.

Are you reading or have you read Wintersong? Would you like to live in the world? Why or why not?

Have a magical day!

1. What’s the name of your current read?

Roar by Cora Carmack

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

“Rora waited within a copse of trees until the sun breathed gold and pink across the heavens, then she pushed Honey into a trot toward a caravan on the eastern road she assumed belonged to the hunters.”

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

Possibly…with how bad the storms/tempests seem to be, having its residents stick to shelters during the Rage season I don’t think I’d do well. Mainly, because storms kinda scare and fascinate me at the same time. It rings true in the story as well. But – to be someone who could battle a tempest and take its heart to control it that is alluring.

Grab the book you are currently reading and answer three questions:

1. What’s the name of your current read?
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

“High Fae males eyed her as they meandered past where we stood by the wood-paneled wall near the main doors, either from awe or lust or perhaps both, their gazes occasionally snagging on me. I knew the wide eyes had nothing to do with my bright green gown or pretty face (fairly bland compared to Ianthe’s). I tried to ignore them.”

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
Even though the characters in the book are still healing after being tormented for 50 years and a new threat is awakening again from an old enemy or the dark creatures that prowl at night, there is a lot of magic in the Prythian lands that I’d love to see. Seeing what each court brought to the world and obviously staying in the Night Court lands of Velaris – their bustling yet quaint city full of dreamers. 

Are you reading anything fun this week? If you’d like to read ACOMAF, you can purchase it here or at your closest bookstore. I’d suggest reading book one, A Court of Thorns and Roses first though.
