Now that I’m working full time, I’m finding more pockets of time in my day to read (waiting in the car before work, lunch break etc). So, I’d like to recommend a book I just finished last night called “Throne of Glass” by Sarah J Maas.
A note on my recommendations… I read a lot of books, and it isn’t often that I actually like them, so these recommendations could be pretty rare 🙂
Why I started it… The covers are gorgeous! A new book from the series must have come out recently because it’s all over Tumblr, so I picked it up out of curiosity more than anything else.
Why I’m recommending it… In general, I don’t really like high fantasy. I find it really heavy and hard to get into. But I liked this. The story was rooted in the characters, as opposed to the plot. I’d probably rate it 3 stars, but for high fantasy, that is a big score for me.
What I liked about it… I really liked the main character Calaena, and I loved Chaol as well. Characters are pretty much everything for me in a book. I also appreciated that the final fight scene was realistic. The stakes were high and I felt the tension.
What are you guys reading and recommending at the moment?
