ONCE UPON A GIF – A Review of THRONE OF GLASS

onceupon

I’m probably the last one to read THRONE OF GLASS, and it’s now one of my favorite fantasy novels of all time. No surprise, right? I’m now devouring CROWN OF MIDNIGHT.

Wow. That. Was. Awesome. Like slap-me-back-into-reality awesome.

I was kidding. Really.

Okay. Sorry. *ahem* Anywho, so in case you didn’t read the title (which is in HUMONGOUS letters), I just finished reading THRONE OF GLASS. Which was just. Pure. Awesomeness.

I loved all the characters, especially Celaena. She is, by far, one of the coolest female characters I have ever read. Stubborn and cool. And totally Bad***

(Just so you guys know, that’s Elise from Assassins Creed Unity, which I think I’m a tad bit too obsessed with, and it hasn’t even released yet).

I loved how she pretty much did whatever she wanted to.

I also really like Chaol. I believe people with the word Captain in their name are usually born amazing.

Dorian, on the other hand, sort of bothered me in the beginning, but after awhile I grew to like him. Not as much as Chaol, but still. I liked him enough.

Well, that’s it. Feel free to tell me who you like more, Chaol or Dorian.

So I can decide whether I like you or not. I’m kidding. Mostly.

Pssshhh. And Me.

    Hah, amazing review Asma :D Love it. <3 But ack. Another book where we have different opinions. I read 80 pages of this book a few years ago, and had to DNF it :p Not a book for me. Sniffs. But I do own all the books. And I will be giving it another chance at a later time ;p It do make me happy that you loved it so much :) Hopes you will love the next ones as well. <3

      I’d say this is the part where I throw the book at you, but since I’m a ridiculously kind person, I’ll nicely suggest that you read this right now. Like, right this second. And I really hope you enjoy it :)

    So glad you liked it! I have few friends who I forced into reading the book, but they didn’t like it as much. :( They thought Celaena was too arrogant and whatnot (first time round I thought the same, but I only read about one chapter). But I just bought Heir of Fire and can’t wait to read it!
