Booklist: recensione : I libri di fine e inizio anno.

Scusate per la lunga attesa, e il ritardo di questa recensione , ma dall’ultima che ho pubblicato , ho avuto degli impegni , ma sono felice di dirvi che in tutto questo ho letto molti libri e sono felice di raccontarveli .

 

  1. L’Hobbit di J R R Tolkien 3425488_235694

Questo libro  è fantastico. Non c’è nulla da aggiungere.

Ce lo avevo da un po in casa ma non avevo mai pensato di aprirlo , ma questa estate provando a colmare il tempo che mi separava dall’inizio della scuola l’ho finalmente letto e….

u73ZE.gif

è stato come buttarmici dentro , letteralmete.

Tolkien ha una scrittura leggera e vivace che ti trasporta e ti guida in mezzo alle caverne più inospitali , fino alle foreste più fitte della Terra di mezzo come se partissi all’avventura con il povero Bilbo.

Ho preso subito in simpatia questo povero sciagurato, per sfortuna divina si è ritrovato in balia di un gruppo di nani e di un mago un pò sopra le righe.

E’ incredibile come il più piccolo essere riesca a cavarsela nelle situazioni più dure e ritornare a casa sano e salvo, e facendo scatenare una guerra lunga tre libri , solo per un caso molto gliellato .

Avrei anche il signore degli anelli , da qualche parte , impolverato solo soletto come un eremita….ma preferisco lasciarlo al suo ritiro spirituale che è meglio….

2 . Cercando Alaska di John Green 

cercando-alaska.jpg

 

Io non lo posso definire un libro. Lo sminuirebbe troppo. Non riesco a chiamare questo capolavoro altro che un manuale di vita.

Perchè è quello che è . Tutti nella vita ci troveremo nei panni di Miles , acerbi ragazzi e ragazze , che mai  una volta nella vita hanno  fumato una sigaretta o disobbedito alle regole , ancora dentro l’involucro familiare e subito dopo catapultati in un mondo che ci hanno fatto etichettare da sempre come “sbagliato”; tutti ci siamo trovati in questa condizione e tutti una volta nella vita hanno incontrato la loro Alaska Young , cioè la parola “sbagliato” fatta persona.

Alaska Young è quel personaggio che ci porta alla luce e che ci fa scoprire il mondo vero , quel mondo che ci hanno obbligato a rinnegare e che ormai non possiamo più evitare perchè sarebbe come nasconderci dalla realtà.

Alaska è anche il lato malinconico della trasgressione , giovanile , di una ragazza che non riesce a rimediare agli errori del passato e che passa da stronzetta senza paure  , a una ragazzina insicura e malinconica .

Il viaggio di Miles , alla scoperta della vera Alaska e della via d’usucita del labirinto della vita , è un percorso che ti fa capire gli errori , alcuni che puoi capire solo se li hai commessi , e del rimpianto della vita non vissuta a pieno.

E del perdono. Al perdono a noi stessi e agli altri ,  il perdono è la solo via d’uscita dal labirinto della vita e del dolore.

John Green ha creato un’ Alaska Young che interpreta la vita vera e spericolata  in tutte le sue forme e ce l’ha fatta assaporare e comprendere , facendoci capire noi stessi .

3. Queen of Shadows di Sarah J Maas 

http%3A%2F%2F36.media.tumblr.com%2Faf91e60bb8d1e653a69c76f2af3d6455%2Ftumblr_nkyfe6XEWj1u0il5ao2_1280

 

 

Perfetto. Questo libro è quello che avrebbe dovuto essere. Mi ha estasiata , compiaciuta, emozionata , commossa come non avrebbe mai potuto fare altrimenti.

Per me questa serie può finire anche qui , perchè il mio animo disperato ha trovato pace, e dopo mesi di agonia , pianti sfrenati e sofferenza psicologica , vendetta è fatta!!!

Questo libro è stato uno dei più belli che io abbia mai letto in assoluto , vi giuro che ho minacciato mio padre per farmelo scaricare in Ebook , il giorno esatto dell’uscita.

Non ho aspettato nemmeno un secondo di più , le mani mi tremavano dalla felicità.

Anche se in Inglese , ho letto QoS , abbuffandomi letteralmente senza mai smettere  e in cinque giorni l’ho completato.

 

Devo parlane. Devo esprimere quello che sento. Non resisto più! Spoiler o non spoiler io non mi fermo più!!

Aelin dopo mesi , in missione su un altro continente , torna dove le novelle sono cominciate : a Rifthold.

Convinta del suo piano , prima di riprendersi il regno deve vendicarsi delle persone che l’hanno fatta diventare un mostro.

Scoprendo cosa è successo in città dopo la sua assenza , Aelin è presa dallo stupore e dalla rabbia per la cattura di Aedion e Dorian , e scarica , naturalmente la sua furia frustrata su Chaol , che non si sa come, ha cominciato a fare veramente qualcosa.

Dovendo rinunciare ai suoi piani di vendetta Aelin è costretta  a scendere a patti con Arobynn e a ritrovarsi con vecchie amicizie.

Qui dopo tanto tempo ritroviamo Lysandra, che non ci crederete , ma è diventata il mio personaggio preferito in assoluto. (ps io la scippo infinitamente con Aedion e spero che alla fine di questa saga , qui succeda qualcosa..).

 

Lo so , quelli che hanno letto le novelle penseranno , ” ma che ti sei fumata?!”, ma solo leggendo il libro capirete !

Chaol , ormai a capo di una banda di ribelli , si vede costretto a tenere nascosti , e a fallire , i suoi piani di liberazione del Principe a Aelin , che gli ha letteralmente e brutalmente schiaffeggiato la verità in faccia.

 

Ok premetto e lo dico chiaro e tondo , più che altro per non illudere i vostri cuoricini speranzosi…Chaolaena è sotto terra , Chaolaelin non è mai proprio esistita.

dopo questa rivelazione potete fermarvi un minuto e piangere fino allo sfinimento se proprio ne avete bisogno…..

Ok, dopo questo momento di silenzio molto sentito proseguiamo;

Il nostro sconsolato capitano/mollato/solo come un cane è accompagnato da una versione femminile di Legolas ,solo però con i capelli scuri; io ho adorato Nesryn fino all’ultimo capitolo, ed è riuscita a fare l’impossibile: dare un senso a Chaol .

Infatti il nostro amichetto dopo essersi depresso per quasi mezzo libro , comincia finalmente a trovare la sua compagnia stimolate…e non aggiungo altro.

( io li shippo un botto).

Intanto dopo un entrata quasi spettacolare , con tanto di fumo allucinogeno , la nostra Aelin / Machete/ Fire-bitch-queen , travestita da ballerina, si intruffola alla festa di compleanno del nostro Principe posseduto e davanti a tutti libera il nostro amatissimo , Aedion .

La riunione è stata la cosa più commovente (e esilarante)scena mai letta.

Non riesco a spiegarvela.

Peccato che il momento viene interrotto, dal nostro principe/strafigo/fae che d’improvviso ,spinto da una nostalgia , corre a ritrovare la sua regina.

Questo uomo mi ha sconvolto la vita, un attimo non c’è e un’attimo dopo succede il finimondo.

Comincia persino a vedere Aelin come una donna , più che come un furetto , e poi si accendono le scintille e ……

Spazio all’immaginazione.

E poi la parte che mia commosso di più. Lo sapevo che sarebbe successo. Ho aspettato questo momento da quasi un anno e finalmente è avvenuto.

La scena in cui Aelin va alla tomba di Sam e gli dichiara il suo eterno amore, sara scolpito dentro la mia mente per sempre.

L’ho sempre saputo. Aelin o Celaena , non ha importanza , Sam era il suo “suol mate” e questo lo ha provato.

non posso dirvi di più .

Tranne che Arobynn finalmente è stato amazzato da…..

e no questo è un segreto! 😉

4 . La contessa segreta di Eva Ibbotson 

12485933

Ogniuno dovrebbe leggerlo. Scritto davvero , davvero bene.

Eva Ibbotson ha fatto un vero e proprio capolavoro, e la scrittura è così leggera, veloce , scorrevole che è come farsi trasportare dalle onde del Volga verso San Pietroburgo e tra le steppe Russe ,per poi andare nella campagna del dopo guerra Inglese , stile Downton Abbey .

La storia racconta di una contessa russa , scampata alla guerra e poi fuggita in Inghilterra che dopo aver perso tutto , va in segreto a lavorare come domestica , in una villa di campagna , dove incontra il suo proprietario…pronto a sposarsi ,con una ricca e un po scellerata ereditiera , che pagherà suo debito e salverà la casa di famiglia , sempre se….

La contessa segreta è uno di quei libri che non puoi smettere di rileggere all’infinito…

5. Deathless di Catherynne M Valente

catvalente-deathless.jpg

La più bella , fantastica e crudele favola che io abbia mai letto.

Deathless è uno di quei libri che leggi una volta sola e ti rimangono impressi per sempre.

E’ come una giostra che gira , egira e gira , fino a quando questa non si ferma e tu ti trovi dispersa senza meta. E’ la storia dentro la storia.

E’ la favola che si ripete di continuo e che finisce con la morte dell’immortale e che risorge per prendere posto in un’altra storia.

La favola di Marya Morevna e della Morte di Koschey l’immortale è qualcosa che va oltre , la favola stessa. E’ come una matrioska che si schiude piano , piano facendola ritornare alla forma originale.

La Valente ha rielaborato uno dei racconti più interessanti della letteratura popolare russa e la fatto diventare un capolavoro , che ti divora, parla per parola fino a quando non ti lascia senza fiato.

L’h amato dall’inizio , fino , all’ultimo fine.

6. Six of Crows di Leigh Bardugo 

Six-of-Crows.jpgSe si può superare l’insuperabile all’ ora questa è una prova.

Leigh Bardugo ha scritto il caso letterario dell’anno con SoC ; il più spregiudicato, dinamico , cinico , fantastico  libro del 2015.

Il mondo dei grisha ritorna a risplendere con questa nuova serie e un attesissimo sequel per la fine di quest’anno , e questa volta si tinge di grigio e sembra una mission imposible , con una fine altrettanto catastrofica , come gloriosa.

Kaz Brekker giovane boss della banda a capo del quartiere mal famato di Kettedram , viene ingaggiato per compiere la missione più suicida di sempre ; il prezzo diventare ricchi fino a stare male.

Per questo deve cercare la gente  giusta per l’occasione.

Una spia, una Grisha lontano da casa , un giramondo, un pistolero con il vizio del gioco e un prigioniero pieno di vendetta.

Questa improbabile squadra si avventura , si scontrerà con il freddo più rigido , le trappole più mortali e i segreti più nascosti per finire a riuscire e ritornare sani e salvi per poi essere sbaragliati e divisi dal comissionatore.

Six of Crows vi stupirà come nessun altro .

 

Spero di essere stata esaudiente e se volete leggete la mia fanfic di il trono di ghiaccio su Wattpad,

Sam Cortland post

When Celaena and Sam wanted to move and said they needed Aronynn’s support to establish themselves….why didn’t she just take him to the Silent Assassins? The mute master said she’d always be welcome??

So I realized that Celaena Sardothien and Sam Cortland’s initials are CS and SC–the same but backwards, and I want to die.

I just want Sam to come back from the death and get together with Celaena/Aelin again. They should just run off and finally start the life they wanted to live at the end of Assassin’s blade and be fearless and free and happy and in love and have a wonderful live

But that will never happen and it makes me wanna crawl under a blanket and cry

someone please shot me i have read sam‘s dead 547 times and he stills dead

I really like imagining Aelin and everyone in the modern day like, Aelin getting adopted by a criminal mastermind and becoming his prodigy but then meeting this cute quirky thief named Sam and falling for him. They realize that her adoptive father is wrong and go off to live in the real world together and go to college and wear normal clothing and not have to worried about being murdered at night. And then Sam is tortured and killed in the middle of the night and Aelin is put in a high security prison.

Sarah J. Maas:Sam Cortland is 1000% dead and is not coming back.

Me:Source???

Things I love about TOG

It’s such a small thing, but it’s something a lot of stories lack. Celaena (Aelin) existed as a character before ToG. She existed between when her parents died and when ToG kicks off. She had adventure that can’t be summed up in a single line or two, and I’m sure she has more stories we know nothing about. ToG isn’t the ONLY book to have done this, but it makes her feel so real. Aelin had more than a backstory; she had love, she had loss, she had a life.

m playing this weird interactive Demi Lovato game, and it was like choose you name and I chose Celaena cause like why not? And of course during the first to seconds you meet her boyfriend SAM!!!! It’s like a freaking modern AU

rattlethegodstars asked:

Hi! I’m the person who was shouting in the tags about Sam Cortland when I reblogged your flawless ToG drawings. I was in the middle of replying to your message and then accidentally deleted it because apparently I’m the worst. Anyway, I just wanted to say that you’re incredibly talented, that your drawing of him and Celaena is my absolute favourite piece of ToG fan art in existence, and that I completely feel you on the crying because WHY SARAH WHY.

^^^^ how Sam Cortland makes me feel…

You are not the worst!! You are so lovely, thank you so much :’3 Yeah and Sarah… really?

Sam: Sam. Sam. Omg. Sam. He loved her when it was hard for anyone else to see what to love, even for herself. He never felt good enough for Celaena, and yet he still loved her with everything he had. He survived weeks of games with Arobynn just to make sure she was safe. He always put her safety above his, no matter what it would cost him. He truly, truly loved her. He did not push, he did not fight. He hoped. He trusted. And he was there. *Dissolves into a puddle of tears because the Assassin’s Blade is a traumatic experience*

Tea party with Sarah J Maas characters

  • Chaol:*spills tea* ups
  • Dorian:*laughs hard as hell* seriously man?
  • Rowan:*facepalms himself* bloody idiots
  • Sam:It’s okay mate,here have another cup
  • Tamlin,Lucien and Rhys:*glancing at each other*
  • Rhys:*whispers* where the fuck did this guys came from?
  • Tamlin and Lucien:*looking at them* i have no idea

Tea Party With Sarah J Maas characters part 2

  • Sam:Anyone wants a cokie?
  • Rhysand:I may please myself with one of your…how should i call it…mundane treats?
  • Rowan:Excuse me,but what is the lady in black doing here? Mocking us to dead?
  • Dorian:Calm down bro
  • Chaol:*with the pinky finger of the hand holding the cup in the air* Just have some tea
  • Tamlin:*ignoriyng the fight by looking at the distance* I wish i was with feyre
  • Lucien:Tamlin‘s life: a summary *pats Tam shoulder while eating a cokie*

Tea Party with Sarah  J Maas characters part 3

  • Lucien:*asks while eating a cookie* So your name is Chaol?
  • Chaol:Yup,weird right?
  • Tamlin:*putting a sugar cub into his tea* Like Kale? The Vegetable?
  • Rowan:*to rhys* The only difference is that the vegetable haves better hair than chaol…
  • Rhysand:*laughing* Not even my extraordinary high lord magic would be able to repair such a aberration!
  • Dorian:*smiles a evil way and whispers* What about mine “magic”?
  • Sam:Stop being a weirdo and drink your tea dorian

Me:*bangs fist in sarah j maas table*

  • Sarah:how did you kn-
  • Me:AND WHY SAM?!?! WHAT HAVE HE EVER DONE TO YOU!!!

So I’ve been thinking. If Sam’s mom was a favorite of Arobynn, so much so that he took Sam in, is it possible that Arobynn is Sam’s dad? I mean what if he didn’t know? Or if he did and he had him killed anyway?

Celaena:“I hate to admit it, Sam Cortland, but i missed your sorry ass too”

  • Me:*crying and making sad cow noises in the distance*

I just want Sam Cortland to be alive. I don’t care if it’s by means of a ridiculous plot twist, he deserves to be alive. He is the person I’ll always believe Celaena should be with

Is Sam Cortland back from the dead yet?

problematic faves:celaena sardothien, chaol westfall, rowan whitethorn

  • cinnamon rolls:sam cortland, dorian hallivard, nehemia ytger

I like to point out we don’t really know how the whole Mate works. We know that there can be more then one, the two people can be physically intimate before they are mated, you can be mated with whomever, that it is hard to physically hurt your mate and you cannot chose who it is. But that is it (add on if there is more). So we can’t tell if Aelin has already mated. Is it similar to the Caranam in the sense it can build over time, or is it a all at once sort of feeling. Can it be resisted, or can the instinct to mate become dormant if a Fae or Demi-Fae is in their other form for an extended period of time? Because we know so little, we don’t know if Aelin has already mated, has yet to mate or if she can all together. So really there is an equal chance to any male in her life to become her Mate.

Celaena and Sam

*spoiler alert*

The amount of times that my heart has burnt for this pairing to be together is uncountable. I honestly hope that in Queen of Shadows that Sam is well and alive. I do have my suspicions about his death though.

1) When Sam had passed on, Celaena detected an unfamiliar scent from Sam’s corpse as she lay next to him. (perhaps his death was staged) -which also brings me to my next point.

2) Celaena chose Sam over Arobynn. I feel like Arobynn played a big role in Sam’s death because he felt that Sam was taking his most prized possession, which is Celaena, away from him. Feeling threatened, Arobynn probably drugged Sam and replaced him with a corspe (thus why Sam had an unfamiliar scent when Celaena lay next to him). Another point (if I’m not mistaken) is that Sam disappeared hours after Arobynn came to Celaena’s apartment to profess his love towards her. Maybe it was revenge towards Celaena. If he could not have what he wanted, then Celaena would have to suffer the same fate as him.

3) Sam’s mother was Arobynn’s lover. If Arobynn was in love with Sam’s mother, he would feel like he had to keep her promise which was to take care of Sam. I don’t think that Arobynn would have killed Sam if he ever loved Sam’s mother.

In all honesty, I do not want to face the facts that Sam is indeed dead. So do ignore my naiveness. 🙂

aedion ashryver is very important to me. dorian havilliard is also very important to me. sam cortland, too, is very important to me

Something that EVERY Throne of Glass fan can agree on…

If Sam Cortland is/was/would be Aelin’s mate, that is FINE

help my mom has just started reading The Assassin’s Blade and she’s at the beginning of Pirate Lord and she asked me if Celaena and Sam get together aND I STARTED CRYING

what do i do ??

celaena: his name was sam
dorian: what happened?
celaena: he died
dorian: when?
celaena: thirteen months ago
dorian: I’m sorry
celaena: so am I
me: *wails*
celaena: his name was sam
dorian: what happened?
celaena: he died
dorian: when?
celaena: thirteen months ago
dorian: I’m sorry
celaena: so am I
me: *wails*

The Truth

Sam Cortland is death and i’m not right.
Samlaena is gone and i’m not right
But for Celaena , Sam is always still alive and for me is a few better.

Sam Cortland post

Who You Should Fight: Throne of Glass edition

Celaena/Aelin: DO NOT FIGHT! I REPEAT, DO NOT FIGHT! SHE WILL KICK YOUR ASS IN LESS THAN .03 SECONDS

Dorian: It’s up to you, really. Simply mention what happened to Sorscha to him. He’ll either be reduced to tears or snap your neck.

Chaol: Be my guest. He’ll put up a fight, but if you play dirty, you’ll beat him. He’s too honorable for his own good.

Sam Cortland: Do you enjoy kicking puppies?

Manon: She drinks blood for pleasure, has iron nails and teeth, and has a freaking wyvern on her side, so fight at your own risk. actually don’t even try

Rowan: Do you want to die? No? That’s what I thought, SO DON’T FIGHT HIM

Aedion: Go ahead. If you say anything about his childhood or what happened to his country, he’ll fall apart easily.

The King of Adarlan: Do not fight, he will use whatever tactics necessary to kill you, even if it means fighting dirty

Arobynn Hamel: He’ll probably kill you easily, but DO US ALL A FAVOR AND FIGHT HIM, PLEASE

Maeve: She’ll beat you, but at least you’ll have fought the Queen of the Bitches

Sam & Celaena ☁

[Set somewhere between The Assassin and the Underworld and The Assassin and the Empire]

Celaena ducked under an awning and pressed herself against the building and as far away from the rain as possible. Sam, laughing, ran up behind her. But, he stayed out in the rain. He spun like a fool, his locks darkening with rainwater. “Get in here, idiot,” Celaena hissed.

Sam laughed harder, “No, you come out here.”

[[MORE]]She pulled away from the wall to put her hands on her hips. “This isn’t funny, Sam.”

He stopped spinning, “Not even a little bit?”

She rolled her eyes. She didn’t need to deal with this. Sticking close to the wall, Celaena began the trek back to their apartment. Out in the rain, Sam followed. Lightning cracked over head, almost startling Celaena into the wall. She grunted when Sam’s laughter started up again.

“Why are you enjoying this so much?” Celaena turned on him. She wrung out her hair, pressing her hands into the curling strands. She’d always hated when it curled. “My hair is ruined.”

“Good,” She spun on Sam, an insult at the tip of her tongue. He said, “Live a little, Sardothien.”

Memories of the last time she’d heard that phrase all flooded back, and she snapped, “I do live. All the time.” Celaena started walking again, her saunter more of a stomp than anything. “This is all your fault.”

Sam’s laugh hit a new octave. “My fault? If you hadn’t punched our bartender in the face, we wouldn’t be in this mess.” She glared at him, and he met her stare headlong.

A burst of thunder startled both of them into ending the starring contest. They turned a corner, and she could finally make out the light of their apartment up ahead. “At least I didn’t throw a table.”

“There were six men running at me! What was I supposed to do?”

Celaena huffed and looked away from him. He was insufferable. “You’re going to catch a cold out there. And then how’ll we complete contracts?”

“Says Adarlan’s Assassin as if she needs my measly help,” Sam sang back. There was a smirk on his lips.

Celaena rolled her eyes again. “Wait,” Sam called as she stepped around the corner. “Wait, Celaena!” She wasn’t listening. She could see the light up ahead and that was the only thing on her mind. There was a crack, but she assumed it was just lightning. And then she was wet.

She gasped and stilled. Sam snapped a hand over his mouth somewhere behind her to hide his obvious chuckles. She hissed, shaking her arms of the water dripping down her. The awning had snapped just above her and all the water pooling in the tarp soaked her.

“Celaena,” Sam’s voice was gentler behind her. “Are you-”

She threw her head back and stared up at the night sky. Although there were dark clouds coating the horizon, if she squinted, she could just make out the stars that made up the Lord of the North. She allowed a small smile to slide onto her lips. Celaena hummed, then spun back and tapped Sam on the shoulder.

With a burst of speed, she took off, screaming, “Race ya!”

Sam laughed and she could hear his shoes hitting the pavement as he followed her. Laughing, Celaena turned the final corner before they reached their building. Live a little, Sardothien, Ansel had said. Somewhere out there, maybe Ansel had been right.

Celaena grinned and sped up.

Heir of Fire moments
  • Me:I’m ok . Nothing can hurt me now
  • * Sam nominated*
  • Me:Oh Oh..

I love how even though Maas herself has confirmed that he is in fact dead, everyone in this fandom still believes Sam’s alive and will come back at some point.

Maybe if we believe hard enough and have enough faith, it’ll actually happen?

Before skulls bay, Sam and Celaena had a love hate relationship

I could be done with The Assassin’s Blade by now, but my heart refuses to finish The Assassin and the Empire because it knows what’s to come. I just love Sam so much. He doesn’t deserve what’s going to happen to him. And poor Celaena. I don’t think I can stand to watch her go through more pain.

If we live through this, Celaena,” Sam said, heading toward the side street that led to the docks, “remind me to teach you how to play cards properly.
The Assassin and The Pirate Lord. HOly FUCKING SHIT NO NO NO I’M DONE HE NEVER GOT TO TEACH HER CARDS NO NO U SEE THEY HAD MANY CARD GAMES TO PLAY BUT NOPE WERE NOT ALLOW THEM TO SEE THEM GROW OLD TOGETHER

  • “I should go to bed,” she said. He raised his eyebrows. “Alone,” she added. She had opened the bedroom door and slid inside before he could stop her. “Good night.”

    Dorian leaned against the door, bringing his face close to hers. “Good night,” he whispered, and she didn’t stop him as he kissed her again. He broke it off before she was ready, and she almost fell onto the ground as he removed his weight from the door. He laughed softly.

    “Good night,” she said again, heat rushing to her face. Then he was gone.

    Celaena strode to the balcony and flung open the doors, embracing the chill air. Her hand rose to her lips and she stared up at the stars, feeling her heart grow, and grow, and grow.

    “Who said anything about shame?” She gestured down to her naked body, even though it was covered by the blanket. “Honestly, I’m surprised you’re not strutting about, boasting to everyone. I certainly would be if I’d tumbled me.”
    “Does your love for yourself know no bounds?”
    “Absolutely none.”

Reasons Why Celaena Will End Up With Rowan
  • 1. They are one soul in two bodies.
  • 2. They have created every bond possible to a person in that world except for a sexual one. That is the natural next step.
  • 3. They are closer than a married couple. No other husband would be able to stand it.
  • 4. Their magic complements one another.
  • 5. They are both Fae.
  • 6. He will help her regain her throne.
  • 7. She cannot marry Dorian because they both must rule countries in their own right, and the people of Terrasen would never consent to be joined to Adarlan in one kingdom.
  • 8. Celaena has finally let go of Chaol. He was what she needed to come back after Endovier, but she is too morally ambiguous and wild for such a straightforward guy.
  • 9. Sarah J Maas has cited Katniss’ reaction to Prim’s death as inspiration for Celaena’s reaction to Nehemia’s. Though it was not specifically Chaol’s fault (just like Prim’s was not Gale’s), Celaena is unable to separate the two notions (Nehemia’s death and Chaol’s involvement) in her head, and thus will never be able to look at Chaol the same way.
  • 10. Dorian’s love for Celaena helped him become the man he is, but they are now just beautiful friends.
  • 11. Sarah J Maas is in love with Rowan.
  • 12. Nobody understands Celaena like Rowan.
  • 13. Rowan has always seen Celaena as Aelin, her true self, whereas her other love interests see her first and foremost as Celaena, a persona she is on the road to putting behind her for good.
  • 14. Rowan gave Celaena her tattoo, one that matches his own. One that would need lots of explaining and emotional conversation with a potential other lover, but with Rowan she doesn’t need words. He already knows.
  • 15. Rowan’s love for Celaena is hinted at when his “kitty-cat friend” asks Celaena her age, she tells him, and he turns to Rowan and says, “good luck.”
  • 16. Rowan is the only one that knows everything about Celaena and her past.
  • 17. Rowan is the only person she has met that is equal to her in every way.
  • 18. Rowan is the shit.
  • Heir of Fire ***SPOILERS***

    freshface-blankpage:

    so theres a rant brewing in me and i need to let it out…

    the five parts of Heir of Fire that destroyed my heart:

    1) Dorian

    “He ripped his cold magic from the air and turned it inward, wrapping it around his heart.”

    It killed me to read this because the thing about Dorian is that I never considered him to suffer. He’s the prince and yes he has a horrible father who he has to continuously fake submission to but I never really felt that his feelings suffered for it. But then this line… Dorian has a heart and now I want to protect it at all costs. And the way this book ended totally fucked Dorian over, he is in the worst state and someone needs to get their shit together in order to save him or I will slip into a miserable-feels-induced coma. 

    2) The burnout

    While Celaena was keeping the fires going at the celebration and she nearly burned herself out- that was intense. I found myself reading that chapter so quickly but so thoroughly, I couldnt afford to skip a word but I also couldnt linger on one word for too long. When it happened it’s when I knew that Celaena and Rowan were meant to be whatever they’re meant to be. I love them so much, I can’t believe how beautifully and painfully their relationship evolved in this book.

    “Like the ebb and flow of the tide, the bath froze, then melted, froze, then melted, slower each time. And each time, the cold soaked into her a bit more, numbing her, urging her body to relax.

    Ice and fire. Frost and embers. Locked in a battle, pushing and pulling. Beneath it, she could almost taste Rowan’s steel will slamming against her magic- a will that refused to let the fire burn her into nothing.”

    And then, obviously I went mad when he finally saw her Endovier scars and his reaction, but really it was when she was burning out and he felt the urgency of her pain and he was literally the only one who could help her that I lost my shit and knew that part would stick with me.

    3) The whipping

    “‘Please,’ Celaena whispered. There was a crack, and the world fragmented as Rowan bowed when the whip sliced into his back. He gritted his teeth, hissing, but did not cry out.”

    This was just one of those moments while reading that I could imagine so vividly that it hurt. I just can’t read it and not think about if this were made into a movie, how awful and ugly I would look while sobbing to this scene.

    4) Sorscha’s beheading

    “‘No.’

    Chaol thought he had not heard it, the wind that cleaved through the air just before the guard’s sword did.

    One blow from that mighty sword.

    That was all it took to sever Sorscha’s head.

    The scream that erupted out of Dorian was the worst sound that Chaol had ever heard.”

    This was just the most unexpected, brutal, devastating part of this book. Like. JESUS CHRIST. I was in love with Sorscha. She was incredible and silently strong and so important. And she was so good for Dorian. Not anymore *cries*

    5) I love you

    “Chaol stared at Dorian in mute horror as his friend’s eyes glowed a deep, raging blue, and the prince snarled at the king, ‘Don’t you touch him.’…[Chaol] looked at his friend, perhaps for the last time, and said what he had always known, from the moment they’d met, when he’d understood that the prince was his brother in soul. ‘I love you.’”

    I feel like this is something that not many authors would do. It’s a line that’s not really ever crossed. “I love you” is hardly ever said in such a serious and emotional manner between two people that aren’t romantically involved and that aren’t of opposite sex. There’s so much love between Chaol and Dorian and i’m astonished and greatful at how starkly it is expressed.

    Throughout the entire book, Chaol had this huge flaw of not choosing sides and not making up his mind and I wasn’t sure if I felt the same about him anymore until he said that to Dorian. Because now I know for sure where he stands and it gives me hope that if he can freely love Dorian and his magic, then he can freely love Celaena even if she’s also Aelin.

    end rant.

The Dark artefices- Cassandra Clare

New Post has been published on Idris

New Post has been published on http://idris.com.br/2015/03/09/cassie-fala-sobre-emma-e-julian-e-papel-e-experiencia-de-homens-e-mulheres-relacionamento/

Cassie fala sobre Emma e Julian e do papel e experiência de homens e mulheres no relacionamento

Em pleno Dia Internacional da Mulher, algumas pessoas ainda são condicionadas (ou preferimos pensar assim) a acreditar que em um relacionamento heterossexual, ou na sociedade no geral, homens e mulheres têm seu papel definido, e isso não pode ser mudado. Caso contrário, gera estranhamento.

E um fã disse à Cassie que acha estranho em Os Artifícios das Trevas a Emma ter tido alguns namorados e ter feito sexo, enquanto o Julian ainda é virgem. E como sabemos que muito provavelmente os dois se envolverão em um romance, isso significaria que ela teria mais experiência nesse campo que ele.

A Cassie foi bastante didática em sua reposta, e mostrou mais uma vez que as mulheres podem sim se sobressair sobre os homens, sem regra ou exceção. Confiram o post traduzido abaixo!

Olá Cassie. Eu sei que você está sempre muito ocupada, mas eu tenho essa pergunta na minha mente por um mês mais ou menos e eu não tenho nenhuma ideia de como eu posso responder a isso e porque é sobre Julian e Emma eu pensei que você pode responder a isso. Eu queria saber por que você decidiu mudar o papel e fazer Emma a única com experiência e Julian quem nem sequer tinha uma namorada. Porque eu acho que vai ser muito estranho e, provavelmente, o que significa que Julian é super tranquilo e provavelmente tímido. Eu sei que é uma coisa estúpida, mas várias pessoas estão perguntando a mesma coisa, então eu ensinou que você pode responder a isso, para me fazer e aos outros fãs, felizes. — Hgcastloveyou
Há um monte de coisas para organizar nesta pergunta.

Em primeiro lugar, a ideia de “inverter os papéis”. Bem, isso só se aplica se você estiver cortando uma visão de um mundo que combina com romances que foram escritos há vinte anos — que todos os romances estão entre uma garota virgem corada e um muito experiente homem. Não é como se nós não vemos esse ponto de vista muito tradicional no entretenimento popular agora (Cinquenta tons de Cinza) — mas isso não significa que não há qualquer razão narrativa real para cumpri-la, exceto o pensamento que você deve dar às pessoas o que elas esperam, porque elas esperam.

Essa ansiedade não é sobre sexo. É sobre o poder. Trata-se da ideia de que a experiência sexual combina com outras “marcas de poderes” que são codificadas como masculino: riqueza, poder dinástico, fama. Trata-se da ideia de que uma mulher com mais poder do que um homem é algo desconfortável, e um profundo desconforto relacionado com a ideia de que se Emma já namorou antes, e Julian não namorou, e ela tem mais experiência do que ele, isso significa que ela tem mais poder do que ele tem/vai passar por cima dele/ela vai ser uma covarde.

Agora, isso não é como se não tivesse romances assim que não se reverta a isso, com grande sucesso. Pense Outlander. Não há nada de “estranho”, sobre o fato de que Claire tem experiência e Jamie não. Isso não significa que ela tem todo o poder. Isso significa que eles têm o poder em diferentes arenas de suas vidas. É também útil para mostrar que o sexo não é necessariamente uma marca de poderes. Às vezes, o sexo é apenas sexo.

Não sei porque o Julian não tendo experiências com namoro significaria que ele é tímido e calmo. Simon, Will, Jem, Alec, Gideon e Gabriel, nenhum deles já havia namorado, nós só os vimos com seus primeiro(as) namorados(as) . Will é o oposto de tímido e calmo. Não é como se os homens transassem e virassem mestres do universo, capazes de matar demônios e resgatar donzelas de um jeito que não eram antes.

Emma é mais velha que Clary, que começou no livro com 15 anos. Emma tem 17, quase 18 anos, é normal que uma garota dessa idade tenha tido sexo consensual com um namorado antes e continue sendo uma garota normal. Clary era virgem, Jace não. Tessa e Will eram virgens. Nesse caso, Emma não é virgem e Julian é. Não estou “invertendo os papeis”, apenas explorando um cenário diferente.

Julian não evita sexo porque ele é tímido. Ele evita sexo, assim como relacionamentos, porque ele possui segredos que não pode contar, e não quer dormir com alguém com quem não possa confiar seus segredos. É a escolha dele, e é uma escolha adequada para o seu personagem, mas isso não significa que ele é fraco ou não é atraente ou não consegue se relacionar com as pessoas, ou que a relação dele com a Emma é “esquisita”. Acho que é um bom momento para eu dizer que Lady Midnight pode não ser o livro que vocês esperam. Não tem como saber tão cedo assim como é o relacionamento das pessoas e como isso se desenvolve. Emma e Julian são parabatai quando o livro começa, e esse é o relacionamento que eles tem, e se Julian se tornasse algo a mais para Emma e eles tivessem um relacionamento amoroso, ele não seria tão babaca a ponto de se importar com o fato de que ela já teve namorado(s). E isso já são muitos “se”.

Mesmo que o relacionamento “tradicional” consista em um homem experiente e uma mulher sem experiência, não tem porque todo mundo escrever só esse tipo de relação. Se todos os livros fossem sobre o mesmo relacionamento, o mundo seria um lugar chato!

Que orgulho de ser fã de uma mulher tão inteligente e que inspira a mudança para o bem! Feliz Dia da Mulher para todas as shadowhunters que estiverem lendo esse post. Mesmo que já tenha passado a data, afinal, adoraríamos ver uma realidade em que a afirmação e celebração desse dia

não seja mais fundamental, pois nos outros 364 dias do ano somos tratados com igualdade.

switching roles

Hello Cassie. I know you’re always very busy but I have got this question on my mind for one month more or less and I don’t have any idea of how I can answer that and because it is on Julian and Emma I taught that you can answer that. I wanted to know why you decide to switch the role and make Emma the one with experience and Julian the one who doesn’t even had a girlfriend. ‘Cause I think it’s going to be pretty awkward and probably that means that Julian is super calm and probably shy. I know it is a stupid thing but a lot of people are asking the same thing so I taught that you can answer that, to make me and the other fans happy. — hgcastloveyou

There’s a lot of stuff to unpack in this ask.

First, the idea of “switching roles.” Well, that only applies if you are hewing to a world view that matches up with romance novels as they were written twenty years ago — that all romances are between a blushing virginal girl and a very experienced man. It’s not like we don’t see that heavily traditional view in popular entertainment now (Fifty Shades of Gray) — but that doesn’t mean there’s any real narrative reason to stick to it except the thinking that you should give people what they expect because they expect it.

This anxiety is not about sex.  It is about power. It is about the idea that sexual experience matches up with other “power markers” that are coded as masculine: wealth, dynastic power, fame. It is about the idea that a woman with more power than a man is an uncomfortable thing, and a deep seated discomfort with the idea that if Emma has dated before, and Julian hasn’t, and she has more experience than him, than that means she has more power than he does/will run roughshod over him/he will be a wimp.

Now, it isn’t like there aren’t romances that don’t flip this stuff, with great success. Think of Outlander. There is nothing “awkward” about the fact that Claire has experience and Jamie doesn’t. It doesn’t mean she has all the power. It means they have power in different arenas of their lives. It also is useful in showing that sex isn’t necessarily a marker of power. Sometimes sex is just sex.

I have no idea why Julian not having dated before means he would be shy and calm. Simon, Will, Jem, Alec, Gideon, Gabriel — none of them dated before; we’ve all seen them with their first girlfriends/boyfriends. Will is the opposite of shy and calm. It’s not like men have sex for the first time and then become masters of the universe, capable of slaying demons and rescuing maidens in a way they weren’t previously.

Emma is older than Clary. Clary started out at fifteen in the books: Emma is seventeen, almost eighteen. It should be okay for a girl that age, in a book, to have had safe consensual sex with a boyfriend before, and to continue to be a normal girl. Clary was a virgin; Jace wasn’t. Tessa and Will were both virgins. In this case, Emma isn’t a virgin and Julian is. I’m not flipping roles so much as exploring different configurations.

Julian is not avoiding sex and relationships because he is shy. Julian is avoiding sex and relationships because he has secrets he can’t share, and he doesn’t want to sleep with someone he can’t share his personal secrets with. That’s his choice, and it’s a reasonable one for the character — but it doesn’t mean he’s weak or undesirable or unable to connect with other people. Or that his relationship with Emma is “awkward.” I think here is where I should say that it is a good idea to keep in mind that Lady Midnight may in no way be the book you expect it to be. There’s no way, at this early stage to know what it’s like/about/what the relationships are/how they play out. Jules and Emma are parabatai — as the book opens, that’s the only relationship they do have, and if Julian were to become more to Emma, and they had a romantic relationship, he would not be so much of a huge a-hole as to hold it against her that she had boyfriend(s) before. And that is already a lot of ifs.

Though the “traditional” relationship may be experienced man + inexperienced woman, there’s no reason for all of us only to ever write that one kind of relationship. If all books were about the same relationship, the world would be a boring place!
