Book Review: “Throne of Glass” by Sarah J. Maas


Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Pages: 404
Release Date: May 7, 2013

I don’t really know what to say about this book that hasn’t already been said because HOLY MOLY is it good. It’s got the whole package: memorable characters, twisty story lines and of course, a rich and creative world for the setting. 

I think one of the reasons I loved this book so much is because of a certain sharp-tongued, funny and bad ass assassin named Celaena. I see why others have compared her to Katniss Everdeen. Celaena is strong. She takes hits but keeps rising back up to take more. She pretends that she can control her emotions but deep down she cares far too much and at times it influences her decisions. However unlike Katniss, Celaena’s got a more vibrant personality. She’s a flirt and likes to push buttons, sometimes for nefarious reasons and other times, just to be a pest. She’s got a hilarious sense of humor. Nothing against Katniss, but I totally love Celaena more. She seems more well rounded and well, more interesting in general. 

There’s two potential love interests but don’t let that deter you. It’s a side story line that is weaved into the main plot but doesn’t draw away from what is truly important, like the demonic presence stalking the castle Celeana resides in. 

So yeah, this book rocks and I’m totally P.O.’d that I waited so long to read it when everybody else I know has been praising their love of it for years. 

Totally getting book 2 asap! Next book on my tbr list be damned!

  1. Aw I am so glad that you loved it! And as for it taking you so long, just think- now you won't have to wait forever for the conclusion 😉 I liked it too, but Crown of Midnight is my favorite of the series- it was AMAZING. It has all the same good stuff that ToG does, but like… extra everything. I hope you love it just as much! I like Celaena, though not as much as Katniss- I think I just understand Katniss better somehow hahah. Great review!

  2. I like how hearing 'two potential love interests…but side story". lol. Love is awesome, there's a reason why love triangles sell, but it's nice when it's not the entire focus of the book. Girls got priorities, right? Right. 😉 Great review!
