It has been so long since I did a recommendations post and as my reading seems to have taken a back seat and somehow disappeared from my priorities all together, looking back on books that I loved previously seems to be the best way to rile the love of books back up. Or the simple answer? I planned to have a book review going live today but didn’t finish the book in time. So recommendation it is. Today, it will be a young adult series, otherwise known as “Throne of Glass” and it’s one of my all time favourites.
I have reread this series more times than I remember and I have enjoyed them a much as it was my first time. It has been one of my go-to series for the times where I’m not sure what I’m wanting to read (much to the shock of my husband, as he watches the shelves fill up with more unread books). As a young adult series the book packs a punch, we watch as an assassin fights for survival under an oppressive rule. It has everything I’m looking for in fantasy, including multiple love interests, a strong female character and forbidden magic. I mean what else would you want?
This series has now progressed and we’re now eagerly awaiting the seventh book, and I’m not sure I can wait much longer. I love seeing the world bend and warp depending on events, and the politics have become rich and worthwhile reading. I think it will carry on being one of my favourites and I cannot wait to carry on the series and find out what’s going to happen in the end – because I’m still not sure!!
Seriously give this a go if you’re looking for a decent series that is long running and has some great characters!
