“You could rattle the stars,” she whispered. “You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”
— Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1))
If someone asks me to name my favorite book or series, this comes out of my before any other book can even come to my mind.
“Why are you crying?”
“Because,” she whispered, her voice shaking, “you remind me of what the world ought to be. What the world can be.”
— Sarah J. Maas (Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2))
It’s a fantasy series filled with plot twists, love, the best of friendships and second chances. It’s a series filled with magic, murder, hope, a world-altering story that will capture your heart, break it into pieces and then mend it back together. It’s a series filled with pure poetry and the greatest love stories that I have ever read or will ever read.
“Because I am lost,” she whispered onto the earth. “And I do not know the way.”
— Sarah J. Maas (Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3))
Once you read this series, be prepared, because nothing you read after this will ever compare. I don’t say that this is my favorite series of all time easily. I actually wouldn’t say there’s anything else that I’ve read so far or will read that will ever compare to this. This isn’t just a series or a book. This is a work of pure art. I can’t even put into words how amazing this series is. I don’t think anyone can ever do this series justice.
“They joined hands.
So the world ended.
And the next one began.”
— Sarah J. Maas (Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4))
In fact, while you’re here, read the rest of her books. They’re all filled with pure… pure… everything. It’s everything.
“Even when this world is a forgotten whisper of dust between the stars, I will always love you.”
— Sarah J. Maas (Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass, #5))
I’m not exaggerating when I say that I can’t express how amazing this is. I’ve recommended this series to my entire family, all my friends, even some strangers I’ve met at the store and library. I will recommend this series, hell this author for the rest of my life. She is so good, all of her books have their very own shelf in my home library. She’s so good, she’s surpassed my other favorite author, J.K. Rowling and if you knew me, you’d know that it breaks my heart to say that because Rowling started my love of reading but Mass has breathed life into it and kept it going. That’s what it is. That’s what it will always be.
“It was agony and despair and fear. It was joy and laughter and rest. It was life, all of it…”
— Sarah J. Maas (Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass, #6))
Read it. Please. Read it and if you don’t like it, I’ll… do something because that’s how much faith I have that you’ll love it just as much as I did. Hell, if you love it half as much as I did, it will still rock your world. Read it. Please. You wont regret it.
“Once upon a time, in a land long since burned to ash, there lived a young princess who loved her kingdom …”
— Sarah J. Maas (Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass, #7))
And once you read it, please reach out and tell me how you liked it. I’d love to know if this series is the world-altering phenomenon that I believe it to be.
