Kiss, Marry, Kill: ACOTAR edition

21807284-_sx540_

A while back I made a post doing the Kiss, Marry, Kill game with the Throne of Glass characters. I enjoyed playing the game (and I hope people enjoyed reading about the results) that I decided to do it again but with Sarah J. Maas’s other series, A Court of Thorns and Roses. Just a fair warning, I am including characters from all three books so if you haven’t finished the trilogy, I highly suggest not to read this post unless you’re okay with being spoiled.

For those who’ve read the series but don’t quite remember all the characters I talk about, I made a list of all the characters with very brief descriptions of who they are as a refresher.

Hocus Pocus Book Tag

I have a confession to make: I’ve never watched Hocus Pocus. Okay, so hear me out. Although I grew up in America, I did not grow up in the American culture. So, I’ve never watched timeless movies like Princess Bride and Hocus Pocus. (Okay, I have watched Princess Bride, but only recently). I grew up without a TV, and my family never went to the movie theatres because there weren’t any nearby, which is why I had to turn to books for entertainment.

I was tagged by the lovely Laura over at The Book Corps. Make sure to check out her blog and send her some love!

ACOTAR #4 Title Reveal!

I don’t really check my phone in the morning or even during the day since I’m at school and my phone doesn’t work inside the school. So when I got home and opened up my Instagram to see Sarah J. Maas’ new post, I was like:

I’m a little late to this but Sarah J. Maas released the title of the fourth ACOTAR book! I feel like a lot of us were really confused as to what would happen next after the third book, A Court of Wings and Ruin, as Sarah J. Maas said that the last three books would be set in the same world as the first three but follow a different set of characters.

If you want more information about that, I made a post here.

Anyway, without delay, here is the title of the next ACOTAR book!

(Forewarning: there might be teeny, tiny spoilers beyond this point so if you haven’t caught up on the series yet I would not continue.)

Spring 2017 Anticipated Releases

Spring is already here. Winter seemed a bit too short for me. I don’t know about you guys, but living in the southern states of the US means that our winters are short and are summers are really long. Heck, spring weather started coming in the middle of last month.

I don’t have a lot of anticipated releases this spring so I decided to just compile them all into one post.

All the synopses are from Goodreads.

My Ultimate OTPs

One of the things I love the most about reading is fangirling over OTPs. If you’re not familiar with fangirl lingo, OTP stands for One True Pairing. You believe that this couple was born for each other. You might go as far as saying that the fate of humanity lies on whether or not they stays together in the end of the story. Regardless, you believe that this couple is meant for each other.

I have a few OTPs. Actually, scratch that. I have a lot of OTPs. However, I only have a couple of couples (cringe-worthy pun intended) that I’m hardcore about defending and think about almost every single day.

Just a fair warning: there’s a lot of fangirling ahead so be prepared.

MORE THRONE OF GLASS AND ACOTAR!?! (and EOS back cover reveal)

I was just idly scrolling through Tumblr yesterday when something caught my eye. Apparently, Sarah J. Maas is adding onto the Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses series! (Click here to read the article)

Funny enough, I was talking to my friend about what we were going to do after the TOG and ACOTAR series were finished, and then we stopped talking about it because we wanted to avoid the feels.

But now, we don´t have to feel sad because there is going to be more. THE END IS NAY!

Apparently, after the Throne of Glass series is finished (*sniff*), there’s going to be two new additions to the series. One is going to be a novella about Chaol while the other is going to be “the ultimate guide to the Throne of Glass series and the world of Erilea, including an illustrated compendium of characters, settings, magic, gods, politics, creatures, and vocabulary, plus a timeline of events.”

As for the A Court of Thorns and Roses series (which is going to be a trilogy), there’s going to be six new additions after the series is completed. What those six new additions are going to be, I don’t know. I’m pretty sure there are going to be novellas and maybe even a compendium for the ACOTAR world. Who knows?

Anyway, along with the that news, the back cover of Empire of Storms (the fifth book) was released on Amazon yesterday.

(I inserted a “continue reading” button because the images in the post are very large and it would be tiresome to scroll through.)

Top 10 Tuesday: Ten Reasons I Love the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas

Hey guys! I’m starting another meme on Tuesdays because I’m such a slow reader and I can only make so many teasers with the books I’m currently reading.

I’m going to be alternating between the Top Ten Tuesday meme and the Teaser Tuesday meme, if that makes any sense.

This meme is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is ten reasons why I love X. I chose to talk about the ACOTAR series because I recently finished the second book and I can’ stop thinking about it!

These reasons are in my particular order, but just warning you, I tried to sound reasonable while writing this post but there’s some extreme fangirling in this post. Some of the reasons overlap, but that’s okay. Right?

ATTENTION: There are no spoilers of neither ACOTAR nor ACOMAF in this post.

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2) by Sarah J. Maas | Book Review

image

I didn’t look at him as I took the decanter of amber liquid and poured myself a knuckle’s length, then refilled his.
But I met his stare as I clinked my glass against his, the crystal ringing clear and bright over the crashing sea far below, and said, “To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.”
He picked up his glass, his gaze so piercing that I wondered why I had bothered blushing at all for Tarquin.
Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen-and the dreams that are answered.”
