ACOTAR Inner Circles’ Reactions to Books (told in gifs)

I always wondered what it would be like to have fictional characters come to life. That got me thinking, what would it be like if I became friends with them and took them to my favorite spot, which is of course any place with books. Then, I was wondering what they would do if they got a book in their hands.

I could describe what I’d think their actions would be, but I think .gifs do a better job.

I narrowed my pick of characters to those in ACOTAR because Feyre likes to read books, so at least one person will appreciate a sudden appearance of a book.

It’s 2018, and a new year means a whole new load of books to be excited for!

I’ve decided to compile a list of my most anticipated releases of 2018 because I normally don’t do monthly anticipated releases.

(All the synopses in this point are taken directly from Goodreads.)

(There are some spoilers as some of these books are part of a series. I put spoiler warnings before their synopses and provided a drop down so the summaries are hidden unless you click on the drop down.)

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.)

Kiss, Marry, Kill: Throne of Glass edition

I’m bored. Let’s play a game with the Throne of Glass characters.

throneofglassseries

What game will that be, you ask?

The only game I can think of at the moment: Kiss, Marry, Kill!

For those who don’t know what this game is, it’s basically where you choose three people (in my case, characters) each round to kiss, marry, and kill. Fairly simple. To amp up the stakes, I put names of Throne of Glass characters in a jar and drew three for each round. Whichever three I choose are the ones I have to use.

Throne of Glass #6 Title Reveal!

I was in the class yesterday when my friend and fellow Sarah J. Maas fan squealed and shoved her phone in front of my face. On her phone was this:

It’s the title to the sixth book of the Throne of Glass series! Tower of Dawn! It sounds majestic. I’m expecting a lot of adventure and thrill. Although I want Aelin and the rest of her crew to be part of this story, I’m assuming they’re not going to be. I think it will be kind of like the fifth book. Chaol was briefly mentioned for a grand total of two times in 700 pages. This time, Aelin and the crew will probably be in the background of the story.

The Chaol novel was originally going to be a novella, but Sarah J. Maas wrote so much to the point they’re turning into a book. That means that there’s going to be seven full books in the series, not just six!

I’m a little scared to see what the cover is going to look like. I just hope that it’ll match the rest of the series. I’ve been collecting the hardcovers because they’re gorgeous and matching. I hope this book doesn’t screw that up.

I’ve also heard that there’s going to be some kind of Throne of Glass world guide, which will be interesting! I’m not ready for this series to end so soon. There’s only going to be one more book after this one! I don’t think I’ll ever be ready to say goodbye to the world and characters that I’m now very invested in.

Thank goodness there’s still the A Court of Thorns and Roses series to look forward to these upcoming years.

Until next time….

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.
