Happy Friday guys! I have been meaning to write but for the past week or so, I have been sick because I don’t have anymore stress in my life. I’m here to stay for the summer now. Last Saturday, my family and I went to Books-A-Million and my mom bought me A Court of Mist and Fury and I thought I would learn more about Sarah J. Maas.
A Little Information About Sarah J. Maas
Sarah lives in Bucks County, PA, and over the years, she has developed an unhealthy appreciation for Disney movies and bad pop music. She adores fairy tales and ballet, drinks too much tea, and watches an ungodly amount of TV. When she’s not busy writing, she can be found exploring the historic and beautiful Pennsylvania countryside with her husband and canine companion.

About Her Book Series
~Throne of Glass
Throne of Glass is a young adult high fantasy novel series by New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, beginning with the inaugural entry of the same name. Partly inspired by Cinderella, the story follows the journey of Celaena, a teenage assassin in a corrupted kingdom with a tyrannical ruler. As the tale progresses, Celaena forms unexpected bonds, and uncovers a conspiracy amidst her adventures. The series has appeared on the New York Times Best Seller list. It has been optioned for a TV series by the Mark Gordon Company.
About the Series: Throne of Glass follows Celaena Sardothien, an 18-year-old assassin in the kingdom of Adarlan. Upon being imprisoned by the king, she accepts an offer to compete with other assassins and thieves in a glass castle for a chance to serve as the kingdom’s champion and be free after four years. This leads her to form unexpected bonds with Chaol, the captain of the guard, and Dorian, the crown prince of Adarlan. In time, Celaena is drawn into a conspiracy and a series of battles, leading to discoveries surrounding both the kingdom and herself.
~A Court of Thorns and Roses
A Court of Thorns and Roses is the first book in the new adult fantasy trilogy of the same name by Sarah J. Maas which blends Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore. It follows the protagonist, Feyre who finds herself entwined with faeries after killing one.
About the Series: When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world. As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it… or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.
I love Sarah J. Maas. Her writing style and use of characters are so creative and something I have never seen before. When you read one of her books, you will want to read all of them at the same time. Some people I know personally say they can’t get into the book but I really enjoy it.
I’m also really excited to see if the TV show for Throne of Glass gets picked up. I’m hoping that it is a channel like HBO or Starz and not something like Freeform or ABC.
