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,

Does anyone else ever just think about Arobynn Hamel and what he did and just go into a blind rage and everything turns red and you suddenly completely understand the fury that lets Celaena peel people’s skin off without feeling any guilt or is that just me?

Please guys can we stop fancasting Sorscha as a white girl,
I’m sure Sorscha is canonically a PoC, though I can’t tell you of which ethnicity, because she is described as having golden skin and looks as though she has ancestors from Eyllwe.
Unlike Nehemia, who everyone has been good with and not used any white actresses to fancast, I’ve been recently seeing white Sorscha’s.

Why couldn’t SJ Maas just be explicit in the ethnicity/race of her characters?? Why couldn’t all authors be straightforward about their characters, and not describe ambiguously, letting us know the character is not white, but giving us no indication of what they are exactly??

tog headcanons. go.

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.

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.

  • Fandom:hoe don’t do it
  • Chaol:*tells Aedion about Aelin*
  • Fandom:oh my god

I feel like Sam isn’t really dead…I dont know, maybe it’s wishful thinking but maybe Arobynn saved him and made Celaena think he was dead so she would kill Jayne, get caught, etc….I want Sam to be alive BUT CHAOL!!!

Sam..o my Sam if you were not there I do not know how I would do!

re-reading the Assassin’s Blade is like

And just now I finished re-reading The Assassin of the Underworld and I am like

and it’s not because it’s sad well, maybe a bit, but because I KNOW

I think the throne of glass series will be the death of me.

I should not have gone through the Sam Cortland tag, because now I’m crying over how Sam died again.

It was the most painful thing I have ever read.

Sam Cortland i crying for you..

  • me:*Thinks of Sam Cortland*
  • me:*cries*

I get scared too,” he murmured onto her skin. “You want to hear something ridiculous? Whenever I’m scared out of my wits, I tell myself: My name is Sam Cortland…and I will not be afraid. I’ve been doing it for years.
Sam Cortland – The Assassin and the Empire by Sarah J. Maas

If you want to make me cry, this is how to do it.

She didn’t want to go out into a world where he didn’t exist. So she watched the light shift and change, and let the world pass by without her.

Something Sweet and Dangerous

The Assassin’s Blade – Review

The Assassin’s Blade are the novellas by Sarah J. Maas that go along with the Throne of Glass series. I really enjoyed reading about Celaena again. I wasn’t expecting Sam and Celaena to hate each other at the start but it sort of makes sense. I don’t have much to say about the first two stories but i have a bit to say about the Assassin and the Desert. I enjoyed reading about her training at the Silent assassin’s keep. I couldn’t believed Ansel had drugged her! I thought she would be this good friend that Celaena could have. Then i was thinking that Ansel had drugged her for a good reason but no it was so she could kill the Silent Master. At the end i wanted Celaena to kill Ansel but deep down Celaena has a good heart whether she wants to admit it or not.

The Assassin and the Underworld was my second favourite novella. I loved to see how Sam and Celaena’s relationship grew and came to be. Although i ship Celaena with everyone and i don’t know why!?

The Assassin and the Empire was hands down my favourtie novella even thought it was so sad. What happened to Sam and what they did was so sad and terrible. It was heartbreaking when she layed down and cuddled Sam’s dead, mutilated body. Arobynn is such a worthless piece of trash, i hope Celaena kills him very slowly and very painfully for what he has done. I was surprised her sentence was to be hung or beheaded first before the king changed it to slavery in Endovier.

Overall Sarah J. Maas is now one of my favourite authors. Her storylines are just so good and thought out so well and the Assassin’s Blade was written just brilliantly.

All I am capable of doing right now is crying over dead characters

Sam Cortland

Why is he dead? Why? Everytime his name is mentioned on the series I just break down crying.
It was very heartbreaking to read The Assassin’s Blade, when Sam is still alive (and us knowing) he’s gonna die soon.

I want to finish The Assassin and the Empire, but I’m a little afraid.

I’m reading The Assassin’s Blade and all I can think about is that I already know how this story ends and OH GOSH IT HURTS SO MUCH BECAUSE

SAM CORTLAND.

Having just finished The Assassin’s Blade, I know the whole ‘my name is Celaena Sardothien and I will not be afraid’ thing comes from sam, but what if Celaena was also saying it throughout Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight to remind herself that she was Celaena and not Aelin and she had no(or less) reasons to be afraid of the king.
