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 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.)
I’m bored. Let’s play a game with the Throne of Glass characters.
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.
Title: A Court of Wings and Ruin
Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Genre: new adult, fantasy, romance
My Rating: ★★★★★
Attention: There are spoilers in this review. Read at your own risk.
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 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.
Thank you Ava @ Reads, Rhythms, and Ruminations for tagging me! Don’t forget to check out her blog!
The movie How to Train Your Dragon was amazing. The story of unlikely friendship is so cute. Plus, Toothless is adorable. I mean, look at that face! Who wouldn’t fall in love with that?

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.
Title: Empire of Storms
Series: Throne of Glass, #5
Author: Sarah J. Maas
My Rating: 5 / 5
WARNING: There are spoilers in this review.
I wrote a spoiler-free section, but there are spoilers of the past Throne of Glass books in it. I also wrote a spoiler-filled section for those who want to fangirl with me. Please keep the comment section spoiler-free for our friends who aren’t up-to-date with the series yet. Thanks! ❤
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.
