elite glass

Short but accurate summaries of popular books/series
  • Red Rising: *George RR Martin approved*
  • Lux: Main love interest is the child of Jace Herondale and Number Four.
  • Raven Cycle: Fun with Dick and Jane. Except instead of fun there's dead people.
  • Ruby Red: Homework is a more appealing option than time travel.
  • Endgame: The 39 Clues, rated R. Also everything you know is wrong.
  • Shadowhunter Chronicles: Racist and oppressive society keeps blatantly ignoring that its racism and oppression is why the oppressed keep trying to kill them.
  • School For Good and Evil: Two girls are the first in +200 years to call BS on heavy prejudices that have made their school an incredibly toxic environment.
  • Vicious: If you relate/agree with either main character, PLEASE seek professional help.
  • The Young Elites: Kindly check your moral compass and whatever sense of morality you may have left at the door, thank you and try not to die.
  • Throne of Glass: Protagonist will love you if you give her a gorgeous dress, a puppy, chocolate cake, or an assortment of deadly weapons (and preferably a reason to use them).
  • Coldest Girl In Coldtown: Vampires go viral. This is basically a quote.
  • Steelheart: Nice try, Brandon Sanderson, I still want superpowers.
  • Gates of Thread and Stone: "ALL RIGHT, WHO STARTED THE APOCALYPSE?" *magic and science point at each other accusingly*
  • Red Queen: Superpowers+racism=a whole lot of dead people.
  • The Darkest Minds: Good news, you survived a deadly plague. Bad news, the government officials who now dictate your life REALLY wish you hadn't.
  • Penryn and the End of Days: Angels and Humans differ in every conceivable aspect...except sarcasm. That's universal.

Book ladies: part one, /part two/

She gave it all, you gave her shit
She coulda done, just anything
Or anyone, cause she’s a goddess
You never got this
You put her down, you liked her hopeless
To walk around, feeling unnoticed
You shoulda crowned her, cause she’s a goddess
You never got this

If The Selection met Red Queen

These events would take place:

• Cal and Maven laughing their ass off at Maxon’s incompetence.

• Celeste and Evangeline becoming besties. Celeste would ask Evangeline to rip the dresses off other girls’ backs.

• The Kings’ would be having a toast together “for being evil af”

• Mare would’ve electrocuted America at some point for pissing her off.

• The Queens’ sitting in an awkward silence after Amberly failed for the umpteenth time to start up a conversation.

• Kilorn and Aspen stuck with each other ever since: 

Aspen: You couldn’t get the girl?

Kilorn: *sighs*

Aspen: Same

Book series i haven't read
  • Throne of Glass: Girl is badass in a world where every guy is hot and every girl is badass. Girl is very special though. She switches names once or twice. Everybody always sounds like everything is very Dangerous™ and they're all about to die but we dont actually know what's happening
  • The mortal instruments/The infernal devices: Honestly there is a world of characters out there. More books and sequels and prequels are always on the way. You would think the battle against the dark bad guys, whom you fight with tattoos and magic and also arrows?? somehow, would be defeated by now. One of these two has been made into a show. Blonde cocky guy, redhead hothead, gay emo tol son and bi very old 26yo looking guy
  • Shatter me: Girl can't touch people. Book Boyfriends Alert. Very lyrical, makes no sense at times, but who cares because you will find your Dreamy Dream dude in there. Girl will seek vengeance or be used as weapon?? Probably has issues with "being a monster"
  • The Young Elites: Scar. Everyone is bi apparently? I think this is The Darkest Minds but written by someone who already has a great series behind them (Legend). Probably quite dark. Pretty sure the protag is at peace with killing and that sort of thing
  • A Court of Thorns and Roses: Sexy times woth faeries. No one knows how to pronouce anything. A lot of "y" and "s" in there. Retelling of fairy tale. Don't know what this is trying to accomplish but again everyone is very beautiful and very badass
