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.

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.

Throne of Glass Dream Cast

It was announced a while back that the Throne of Glass series is going to be made into a TV show. Then a couple months ago they released the name of the show: Queen of Shadows. They haven’t made a cast of characters yet, but there are many TOG casts that fans made. I wanted to make my own.

Now keep in mind that I don’t know a lot of celebrities. I tend not to keep up with them because I’ve got better things to do (like read books). With my limited knowledge of actors and actresses, here is my fan cast for the upcoming Queen of Shadows TV show.

If you haven’t read up to Queen of Shadows, I highly suggest that you do not read past this point because there are some spoilers of new characters that appear.

2016 Fall Book Haul

I got a lot more books that I expected to this season. My TBR pile is a mile high and I’m in a reading slump. That hasn’t stopped me from getting more books, though. I honestly have no self-control when it comes to books.

November Wrap-Up

November is already over. What have I done this month? Absolutely nothing.

Actually, I take that back. I have done a couple things.

First, I didn’t procrastinate on *most* of the things I needed to do this month. I finished Empire of Storms (which I have been hesitant to finish because I never want it to end) and I started watching Stranger Things. I’ve heard so many great things about the TV show that I had to give it a try. I just started it, but hopefully I’ll finish it sometime in December.

Second, I actually watched a movie when it first came out. For some reason, when I want to watch a movie, I wait a year before watching it online. I never go to the movie theatre, and I have no clue why I don’t. For those who haven’t watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, you got to watch it soon because it’s really good. Just don’t expect it to be like the Harry Potter movies.

Dream Author Panel

Everyone booklover has their dream author panel containing their favorite authors. I am no exception. To be completely honest, I spend 50% of the time I’m awake daydreaming, and the majority of those dreams are about meeting my favorite authors.

Everbrite has this ongoing project that help people find events that they may be interested in, including things like author panels and book signings. When they talked about building your own dream author panel, I had to make one of my own. You can check out their website at https://www.eventbrite.com/l/conferences/.
