Yet again another amazing book from the Throne of Glass series. This was a heart wrenching, addictive novel that I am so glad to have read. Full of twists and turns, drama and action, this fast paced book was a wild ride. Even at 700 pages, I gobbled up this book within a few days.
Fangirl was given to me by my friend Snipps, who you all may have had the pleasure of reading her latest review of Nimona and introduction on my blog. She absolutely adored the book and was absolutely convinced I would equally enjoy it. And dare I say she was correct.
Oh boy. I don’t know where to start with this one. The synopsis the editor’s wrote covers this book so well without giving it away. This may strike you as a happy, cutesy sort of comic at first, but then it smacks you around with a fish while you’re tied to a chair.
Today I'd like to discuss the difference between Young Adult (YA) and New Adult (NA). As a reader genres are important distinguishers for the books content. I am primarily a YA reader but I've begun to stumble upon the phrase "New Adult" more and more. It made me wonder, what is New Adult and how is this genre defined and different from Young Adult? Lets find out!
Hello everyone! I’m Snipps! I’m a good friend of Julia’s and for the last few years that her blog, Fable Hunter, has been up, Julia has continually offered me the opportunity to write a blog post or series in addition to her usual posts. I’ve declined her in the past because I struggled with coming up with something I cared to share with the world in all of its glory and could express with my own true enthusiasm. In recent reflection, and what I came to realize would be a glorious addition to Fable Hunter, would be a new segment featuring comics, graphic novels, and manga!
I have yet to read a book in this series I didn't love. Sarah J. Maas is amazing at weaving a complex story with intricate character development and introduction. Each story seems to get more elaborate, drawing the reader in. I was so hooked on this book I stayed up late into the night and ended up finishing it in two days because I didn't want to stop reading, and impatiently waited to recieve the next book.
I was tagged by the wonderful Cait at Cait is Booked to do this tag! Thank you so much for thinking of me Cait! She tagged me a few months back, but better late than never!!
Something that I absolutely adore about this series is how layered it is, and how diverse the world S.J.M. created is. There is a lot of plot twists and unexpected additions in every book thus far, and I feel like that is a mark of an excellent writer.
