Hi 🙂 I hope every has been enjoying their weekend and any of the books that you are currently reading! I’ve mentioned this quite a few times, but I am in a book club over at Goodreads called Bloggers’ Book Club with some awesome bloggers. I decided to do small little posts that basically just show you guys the book and how I felt about the book. The book chosen for April was…
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
3 out of 5 stars.
I was so excited that this book was chosen for the book club, because I had recently discovered it before I joined the book club and seen that so many people loved the book and the series. As you can see by my star rating…I didn’t love it. It took me almost all of April (I just finished today 4/26) to get half of the book read! I was just so bored and I didn’t want to read it. I ended up taking a break and reading something else. It took 250 pages of the book until I finally started to enjoy it. I flew threw the last half of the book this weekend! It just sucked that it took me so long to get into it…250 pages (the book is 404 pages), that’s crazy. I finally did though and I flew threw to the end. Celaena was a total badass and I loved her so much. Chaol and Dorian were also so great too. They were completely different, but they were both great characters and I especially loved Dorian.
Even though I didn’t like most of the book, I am glad I stuck through and finished it. I do plan to eventually read the entire series, because I did like the last of the book enough to want to see what happens next. It just took me so long to get into it as you can see and for that, I rated it 3 out of 5 stars. I am excited about the next group chat in the book club to discuss the rest of the book! If book clubs are your thing and you love chatting about books, then you should totally join the book club! The book for May hasn’t been chosen yet, but I am excited about all the choices! 🙂
**let’s pretend ColbyJack was going to give me a high five for finishing the book and not that he was actually getting ready to bop me. 😉
Goodreads Description: In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien. The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass–and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.
Here are some of my other recent posts in case you missed them and want to check them out!
I am off to catch up on some TV shows until the boyfriend gets home. I’ve been struggling trying to get this book read and binge watching The Office (thank you, Netflix!) that my DVR is now almost full! I hope you all have a great rest of the weekend! ❤
