Hallo meine Fanleute! Which translates to Hello my fanpeople! I hope you all have been amazing while I was gone. I meant to post much sooner but I have been incredibly busy. Before I start talking about how Sarah J Maas has destroyed me let me give a quick life update. So I finished school for the spring last week. I was going to take summer classes as well but I recently GOT A JOB!! MY FIRST ONE! This is pretty big to me. Not only will I be making money I’ll be making it doing something I love and plan to go to school for next year. I’m going to be a chef! A freaking chef!! I am incredibly excited in case you can tell from the caps and the exclamation points. Now that I’ve said that I’ll tell you about how SJM ruined me.
So I was first introduced to Sarah J Maas on bookstagram in 2016. Her book Throne of Glass series was very popular and even more popular was her A Court of Thorns and Roses series. What sounded more interesting to me was Throne of Glass. An assassin who had to compete with other assassins to be champion of an oppressive king was right up my alley. So I bought it and devoured it. Lucky for me there were already 5 books in the series so I could read to my hearts content. I got the second book shortly after finishing the first and devoured that too. I had to wait to get the other books until after I had my usual Christmas Barnes and Noble gift card haul. The day after Christmas I went to Barnes and Noble and bought the rest of the books. I finished the third one right as it became a new year. I had just met the love of my life ROWAN WHITETHORN and it was definitely going to be a good year. After that I finished the fourth and fifth book as fast as possible while still in school. I then was dead inside because Empire of Storms is not the last book in the series and it ends on a gigantic cliffhanger. I mean like the biggest cliffhanger.
Just so you know I had planned on waiting until the last book was published after I realized that Empire of Storms wasn’t the last one. Queen of Shadows, the fourth book, does not end on a cliffhanger. I could have easily waited but my friend who had read EOS before me said “No, you have to read it now. I promise there is no cliffhanger.” That friend is now dead to me and to everyone else because I killed her. JK but I yelled at her through DM’s for a very long time. Her words were “I needed someone else to suffer” with a shrugging emoji!! I mean come on.
So here I am a year and a half later waiting for the last book to finally come out. After three schedule changes and a novella becoming a novel Kingdom of Ash, isn’t that an amazing and terrifying title, finally coming out this year. It;s publishing date is October 23rd and I am so ready!!!!!!!!!! Seriously I freaking need this book so bad. I need my sweet baby Rowan, I need my Court of Terrasen and I need my Fire-Breathing Bitch Queen. I have not preordered my copy yet because you know there is going to be a special edition and I need that edition. I think that and the cover reveals will be announced in a month at most, hopefully. Once this book is out I will absolutely be fangirling about it after processing the shit that I am sure is going to go down.
So I hope you enjoyed that probably incomprehensible gibberish of fangirling. I hope to post again soon. Have wonderful DAY!
