My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4.5)
I don’t know about you, but it’s been a hot minute since I’ve read the ACOTAR series. In honor of the newest book, A Court of Silver Flame, coming out next week, I thought I’d summarize what has happened in the last three books (and one short story) for anyone who needs a refresher before book 4. I’m going to yada yada a lot of the series, but that being said…
THERE ARE MAJOR SPOILERS FOR A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES, A COURT OF MIST AND FURY, A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN, AND A COURT OF FROST AND STARLIGHT!
You have been warned.
I know I don’t normally post on Thursdays, but I had to break up the regular schedule to bring you some stunning bookish news!
This is no longer the (temporary) cover for ACOSF on Goodreads!
The cover of A Court of Silver Flames (a.k.a. the fourth book in the ACOTAR series a.k.a. the start of the ACOTAR sequel series a.k.a. the start of Nesta’s story) was revealed today on Goodreads, and it is surprisingly different than I expected!
The moment I opened up Instagram, I was met with a pleasant surprise. After months and months of waiting, Sarah J. Maas finally revealed the title of the fourth book of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series!
GUYS. GUYS. I was just on Instagram trying to kill time before class and I saw that Sarah J. Maas just posted something about a new edition of ACOTAR that was coming out with a stunning cover.
Sooooooo recently I finally got around to watching Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in theaters, and it was fan-fricking-tastic! The artistry, the animation, the subtle themes, and the SOUNDTRACK. Oh my goodness, it was a medley of awesomeness and hype all wrapped up in a nice package in the form of a two hour movie masterpiece.
I mean, LOOK AT THIS AMAZINGNESS!
If you can’t tell, I loved the movie.
Every since I watched it a couple days ago, I can’t seem to get it out of my head. I was having a hard time brainstorming some ideas of what to post on this blog, when I realized that I could just take what was occupying my mind and turn in into a post. There’s this whole thing that was going around the internet where artists would create their own Spider-sona (like persona, but as a spider-hero), and that inspired me to think of which book character each spider-hero reminded me of the most. I going to limit this list to just the spider-heroes because they were my favorite. Continue reading
Title: Tower of Dawn
Series: Throne of Glass, #6
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Published: September 5, 2017
Genre: young adult, fantasy, romance
My Rating: ★★★★★
Warning: This is the sixth book in the Throne of Glass series. There are spoilers in this review.
I don’t know about you, but I’m currently on a To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before high right now. After watching the movie, Peter and Lara Jean are all I can think about.
(I probably won’t stop fangirling about them for a while. Just a warning. Speaking of fangirling about Noah and Lana, I read this Buzzfeed article about them and I honestly can’t handle how cute they are together. Just when you don’t think they could get any cuter they hit you with something like this.)
Anyway, I wanted to suggest some books for those who are looking for some cute book relationships after watching/reading To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Girl (or guy), I get it. I can’t handle the adorable-ness either.
Some of these book/series are mega popular and you’ve probably already read them, but I hope you find some gems in here that you haven’t tried out.
“’I have to create, or it was all for nothing. I have to create, or I will crumple up with despair and never leave my bed. I have to create because I have no other way of voicing this… it hurts, but if I were to stop, if I were to let this loom or the spindle go silent… then there would be no Hope shining in the Void.’”
Title: A Court of Frost and Starlight
Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3.1
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Published: May 1, 2018
Genre: new adult, fantasy, romance, paranormal
My Rating: ★★★★☆
Attention: This review contains spoilers from the past books in the series but no spoilers from this book itself!
If you’re anything like me, you are the last person to know about new releases and book news. I don’t have a lot of social media to keep up with the authors, and I don’t use the ones that I follow authors on that frequently. To be completely honest, it’s a lot to keep track of all the new releases and things that are going on so I decided to take some of my favorite and (I think) well-known YA authors and compile all their upcoming releases.
Some of the information I got off of posts on the authors’ social media or websites (which I’ll link in this post) and others I got off of Goodreads. I can’t guarantee that I will catch all the stories their working on but hopefully this will give you an overview of what to expect.
The authors I’m covering in this post are:
Cassandra Clare || Leigh Bardugo || Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff || Marie Lu
Sarah J. Maas || Tahereh Mafi|| Rainbow Rowell || Adam Silvera
Angie Thomas || Nicola Yoon
At the bottom of the post I put a timeline-ish thing that gives you an overall look on all the authors and what they’re releasing in case you don’t want to read through all the stuff I wrote.
