AHHHHHHHHHHH

The Third Trial/Feyre Dies (Rhys POV)

All dialogue and ideas behind the scenes belong 100% to Sarah J. Maas. I take zero credit for them.

Chapters 43-45 of ACOTAR where Feyre completes her third trial, solves the riddle, dies, and is resurrected by the seven High Lords, all from the POV of a miserable Rhysand. I warn you, it’s long and a chaotic mess because it’s late at night and my feels after finishing rereading the bloody book were a hot mess, i just couldn’t wait until a time when I’d be more sane to write it. So… here ya go, haha.

My Mate

Watching Feyre enter the throne room for her final trial was… a challenge. As with the last trial, I had no idea what Amarantha had in store for her, only that it would be cruel and sneaky and very likely a trick. I still believed Feyre could do it, could beat her, but Amarantha would not go quietly nor without damage and that was what scared me. We would leave this room together today, but at what cost?

And then, there she stood, my Feyre, before our evil queen, chin held high and boldness in her stance. At long last, the end was here.

when I read EOS i thought that it was the last book in the series so my dumb ass was expecting there to be some happy ending. can u imagine my shock? just like….put yourself in my shoes. i finished the book at like 1AM on a school night and i couldn’t sleep because i was crying so hard

A Court of Mist and Fury

I just finished a Court of Mist and Fury (finally). I had to take a little break because of school, but thankfully I had some time this weekend. And wow, it was worth it. 

The concept of love as freedom was a major focus in this book. Seeing the stark differences between Tamlin and Rhysand and their “love” for Feyre. Maas did an amazing job showing clear definitions of what a healthy relationship looks like. And that was so refreshing, compared to books like Twilight for example. Tragic pining and jealousy doesn’t equal romance, and Maas spelled that out for readers clear as day. 

The majoirity of her readers are young women, so projecting that message to them of “hey, this is what a loving, kind, caring relationship looks like. Don’t accept any less than your Mate. Don’t settle for a super jerk Tamlin.” 

That’s an important message for young women. I know that for me I’ve bounced between healthy and unhealthy relationships since I was 15. I wish I’d read a book as empowering for women as Sarah J. Maas’s books when I was younger. 

Anyways, I’ll give this book 5/5 stars. Well worth the read. If you love slow burn romance, empowered women, amazing fight scenes, and a plot that is always moving and keeping you on your toes you will love this book as much as I did. 

OKAY SO

 I JUST FINISHED A COURT OF MIST AND FURY AND BREATHING IS A STRUGGLE SO I’D JUST LIKE TO SAY OH. MY. GOD. YESSSSSSS!!!!!! THINGS I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO:

  • Feyre kicking ass
  • Lucien and Feyre becoming extra besties
  • Cassian and Nesta being mates because yes please??
  • FEYRE KICKING ASS!!!!!!
  • Feyre and Rhysand celebrating everything <3
  • More kickass ladies (cough Myriam cough cough)
  • Amren fuckin’ bitches and getting money to do whatever it takes to get Feyre back
  • Az and Mor???? Please???!!!!??!?!

Things I am not looking forward to:

  • Rhys and Feyre not being together for like most of it
  • Tamlin dying? - I don’t want him to die because it would kill Feyre. In the end, his desperation his need to protect her, his love for her, is what caused everything. And he may not have made the best choices, but he does love her, and she loved him, and if she kills him, it won’t really be good for her…
  • Elain and Lucien? Because he kind of took Tamlin’s side a bit too much for me to be comfortable with? But I feel like him and Rhys and Cassian could be really good friends?

THINGS I LOVED ABOUT THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • EVERYTHING.
  • Mor and Feyre’s friendship - it reminds me of Aelin and Lysandra’s and they’re cutie pies and I love it
  • Rhysand
  • The fact that there is sex, because thank you Sarah J Maas for being a YA author who is pushing the YA boundaries and who gets it and who wrote fuck multiple times throughout this book, along with other swears, and is simply amazing. Thank you. 
  • Mating bonds. Oh my god 10/10.
  • Feyre painting
  • There’s more but I just don’t have the words for it, so let’s just go back to FUCKING EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“She was fire, and light, and ash, and embers. She was Aelin Fireheart, and she bowed for no one and nothing, save the crown that was hers by blood and survival and triumph.”

Never in my life have I wanted to live in a fictional realm so much, despite all the bloodlust and carnage. But holy shit. I’m…absolutely speechless. It’s going to be hard to write this review because I only just finished the book an hour ago yet I desperately needed to jot down my initial thoughts and emotions (even though I’m a sobbing mess and my hands are still shaking). One thing is absolute: Queen of Shadows is without a doubt one of the most spectacular books I’ve ever read. After devouring 645 pages of pure badassery, my heart is pounding and my eyes are red. Sarah took the first three books of the series and amplified everything we loved into a climatic brew of ferociousness and empowerment and thrilling adventures and then proceeded to write this masterpiece. And boy did she deliver. I find it perfectly reasonable that I lost several hours of sleep to this sacred work. Coffee became my new best friend….as did a certain girl named Lysandra.

Everything you think you know about the Throne of Glass world is only just the dawn of the maelstrom.

Sometimes I think about how SJMaas could’ve let us finish reading ACoMaF without revealing that the mating bond was still intact, and imagine just how much more torturous the wait until ACoTaR 3 would’ve been then.

ToG TV Show

@ink-like-starlight, there is a “confirmed” tv show in a way. The series was optioned for TV, announced this past September, and it was picked up by Mark Gordon company. I am excited about this because they made shows and movies with great actors and intense scenes and soundtracks. I think it would be done really well, specifically if Sarah works with them. 
Of course, it will never be completely like the books. For example, if you think back to it the first book had a lot of talking scenes and thinking, so stuff will be added and left out to hold viewers attention. There will always be differences because books and television just has to be portrayed differently. Hoping for a great show.

However, there isn’t an announcement for when this will actually happen. The company has to finish other projects currently, and hire an entire crew. Ever since the announcement we haven’t heard anything. It could be a very long time before anything happens. I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t premier until months after the 5th book is published and its closer to the release of the 6th one. Knowing how long it takes to actually shoot a season and getting the process started. It’d be awesome though if its already being worked on, and it would premier sooner. Who knows, it could have been in fast progress for a while.

ACOTAR is being made into a movie, and i think we will see that decently soon. Just because Sarah had more details on it and said she was working with them :) Hopefully both come out soon!

I just finished reading Empire of Storms and I need to say a few things so if you haven’t finished please move past this. I mean, I don’t really reveal anything other than talking about my feelings about the end of the book, but spare yourselves so you have a bigger reaction to it.

No book has ever made me feel like this. I’m not one to get super emotional while reading no matter what and this book throughly wrecked me. I thought I knew everything that happened at the end but there is still so much nobody talks about yet. I can’t even nor will I because these are the biggest spoilers ever. All I will say is that I had to stop many times reading the ending and tried not to sob and failed on multiple occasions. I could literally feel my heart ache and hurt deep in my chest from the events that unfolded. And that last line broke my heart.

Like I said, I’m not one to get emotional like this because I just feel like every other person who cries at books and I always thought they made much too big a deal. But there are no words to describe how well written this book, this SERIES, truly is. I never got overly upset at the other books. It’s going to be a long while before I can get over the pain in my chest and the slap in the face this book left me with.

Just another day of work aka another day of counting down till my vacation. It doesn’t really feel real yet but I’m sure that 3am wake up call Saturday morning will come quickly!

We (Sarah and I if you’re new here) pretty much finished our lifting plan so I was looking for something new and with structure. I’ve been reading thatsminethankyou’s experience with the New Rules of Lifting for Women so decided to order it and give it a try. I even brought the book to read on my breaks because you know I’m still living that no data life!! I’m looking forward to something new and possibly learning a thing or two.

I hope you all have wonderful Wednesdays!

I’m going to be jamming out to Needtobreathe & Ben Rector on my drives all day because they’re the best!
