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….

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?

Title: Empire of Storms

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.
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.
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/.
It’s finally starting to feel like fall where I live. After having a good six months of 90+ ˚F (32+ ˚C) weather, I’m about ready to bust out my sweaters and finally go outside without sweating buckets.
I was tagged by Heather over at The Sassy Book Geek. Thanks so much for tagging me! Don’t forget to check out her blog. She writes really thoughtful and honest reviews.

This Week’s Topic: inaccurate book covers
These are the covers where they either:
- completely irrelevant to the story
- the model on the front is nothing like the character described in the story
- the cover is cheesy but the story is not
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.

GUYS IT’S HAPPENING! The Throne of Glass TV Show (which is apparently going to be named after the fourth book in the series, Queen of Shadows) is actually going to happen!
To be completely honest, when the news first got out that there was going to be a TV show adaptation of the TOG series (about a year ago), I was a bit skeptical. Sometimes a book’s movie/TV show adaptation doesn’t work out when it’s in creation and is never released. I thought that this would be the case for this (please don’t hate me).
But I was totally wrong! Kira Snyder (who also worked on The 100) will be writing the adaptation. It will be produced by the Mark Gordon Company, which also created shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Criminal Minds.
The queen behind this amazing series, Sarah J. Maas, tweeted about this on Twitter, and if you want to go to the article she tweeted out, click here.
I’m super excited that this series is becoming a TV show, but I’m also a bit scared. I love the series so much that I think that I’ll have too high of expectations when it’s released. Because of the different media, there are some things that producers cannot replicate on screen that happens in the stories. I hope that the storyline doesn’t stray too much from the original, but I’m not sure what to expect.
