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

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

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.

Recenzione : Books Summer List

Ok . Ok miei cari fra meno di tre settimane l’estate finirà e con essa il caldo torrido, le giornate afose, le notti in bianco…. be molte cose insomma!

Ma settembre segna anche l’ora delle grandi uscite editoriali ,e mentre noi le aspettiamo con impazienza ,io vi elenco cosa ho letto  questa estate !!!

772819

The Heir by Kiera Cass 

tumblr_ndwog3pMp61qbahz2o1_250

Ok questo libro l’ho letto prima della fine della scuola ed è stato qualcosa tipo:

L-ho-letto-come-se-fossi-posseduta-da-non-so-quale-demonio-e-l-ho-finito-come-fosse-droga-e-io-fossi-una-drogata.

Un giorno. Giuro che l’ho finito in un giorno , e non ho staccato mai più di quindici minuti. Era come una dipendenza. Mi ha tenuto sulle spine fino all’ultimo.

Ammetto che la trama può sembrare banale, ma la Cass ha sviluppato così bene questo personaggio che non potevo aspettare un minuto di più la fine.

Eadlyn nel suo modo cerca di far felici tutti , allo stesso tempo non riesce ad andare avanti , ed le viene difficile aprire il suo cuore a degli sconosciuti. Crede che lasciano fuori i sentimenti possa in qualche modo proteggerla dal fallimento.

Lei è una femminista nata non accetta l’idea di dividere un titolo che le è stato imposto dall’inizio. Si sente in dovere di preservare e  proteggere la sua autonomia che ha guadagnato con molti sacrifici. Nonostante questo non riesce a capire che il mondo sta cambiando , e che non può farcela da sola.

Vi giuro che la crescita del personaggio dall’inizio alla fine del libro è assolutamente incredibile.

La cosa che ho adorato di più sono i ragazzi! Eadlyn e Kyle sono ufficialmente la mia OTP!!! Sono troppo …Be

Sicuramente chi ha letto i libri precedenti troverà una grande differenza e alcuni personaggi ( ahi me) non ci sono più.

Troviamo un Maxon molto maturo ed attento che non ha quasi ( se non poco) a che fare con il principe di The Selection.

America è una splendida donna , madre e regina ed è cresciuta ma restando dentro di se sempre la nostra ” rossa preferita”!!!!

Il finale vi lascerà tipo : ….

Tenebre e Ghiaccio by Leigh Bardugo 

Ok. Tre parole. IO LA AMO. Io amo Leigh Bardugo. Questa serie è fantastica. Ha i personaggi giusti, la storia giusta, lo stile giusto… E’ tutto giusto! Tranne il finale.

Ho sempre avuto un debole per il folklore russo e la Bardugo ha saputo letteralmente abbindolarmi per bennino. Ha fatto molta attenzione hai dettagli , alle descrizioni , ai luoghi…sembra di essere praticamente lì  !

Ed ha una scrittura così leggera e fluida…andava via che una bellezza!!

La protagonista è una delle mie eroine preferite. Non è sicura di se , anzi è tutt’altro che calcolata . Si accontenta di quel poco che riesce a fare ( che non è molto ) come cartografa , e resta all’ombra del suo migliore amico Mal  che  sembra diventato  quasi iranggiungibile . Tutto questo fin che all’attraversata del mare d’ombra che taglia in due Ravka ,  Mal non viene ferito e per salvarlo sprigiona i suoi poteri scoprendo  di essere qualcosa di davvero speciale e raro.

E’ qui che entra in scena il personaggio più magnetico ed assolutamente più fantastico della storia …. L’oscuro!!!! (The Darkling in lingua originale)

Io lo amo!!! E’ qualcosa di straordinario lui si che riesce a plasmare Alina rendendola interiormente ed esteriormente più forte e sicura di se. Le fa conoscere un mondo di ombre e potere che nemmeno lei stessa avrebbe mai potuto immaginare .

Loro sono una delle coppie più belle di tutta la letteratura YA!!!!

Il loro feeling , il loro legame è qualcosa di travolgente e sensazionale , davvero incalzante!

Mi è dispiaciuto molto quando  Alina ha capito chi è veramente e sia scappata facendolo suo acerrimo nemico e rivale.

L’unica nota stonata è Mal.

Mal per dio da dove si sbucato fuori ?!

Ritornate in trincea ! Capirei se facesse qualcosa di eclatante e significativo…. ma il problema è proprio questo! Non serve in pratica a niente.

Sarò io che sono una femminista radicale , ma … perché?

Non l’ha mai notata, non la mai considerata che un’amica , d’improvviso un ceppo gli cade in testa e ha l’illuminazione? Cioè un po di coerenza!

Una eroina che ha scoperto i suoi potenziali non ritorna sbavando a quello che poco prima non la pescava nemmeno!

Comunque nel complesso ( che x mia sfortuna comprende anche Mal) è un libro fantastico!

L’unico inconveniente è che l’inter serie non è stata tradotta in italiano e quindi si è costretti a leggerla in Inglese.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

Scusate ma esiste un aggettivo per esprimere a pieno questo capolavoro?

Ormai ho la prova che la Maas ha stretto un patto col diavolo , perché ….diamine chi riesce a scrivere così maledettamente bene?

Essendo uscito solo quest’anno l’ho dovuto leggere in inglese , avevo paura , credevo di non capirci niente….. Miseria. L’ha scritto , descritto , sottoscritto così perfettamente che persino io con le mie misere conoscenze della lingua anglosassone sono riuscita a seguire il filo della storia!

Non volevo lasciare il cellulare. Non potevo , ero come ipnotizzata . Dovevo leggere e leggere fino allo sfinimento.

E i personaggi sono tipo…wow !

Ci sono così tante sfumature , così tanti segreti e sfaccettature Sarah è riuscita a  e  descriverle così bene da farli sembrare vivi! Hai la netta sensazione di poterteli vedere nella tua mente!

Feyre è qualcosa di esplosivo. Così fredda e spiazzante all’inizio…. poi piano piano i muri del suo cuore si schiudono , facendola brillare come un diamante! Ha un talo coraggio , una tale passione….

E i personaggi , sono assolutamente …. miseria dei veri e propri strafighi!

Tamlin. Tamlin è magnifico , stupendo , dolce , feroce e ….. qualsiasi cosa che inizi con fantastico e che finisca con pazzesco!

Sembra un dio. Ha un fascino magnetico , un corpo da sogno , ha un modo così sarcastico di affrontare le cose   , è così dolce e protettivo verso Feyre …..

Lucien è il migliore. Ha un carisma travolgente e i suoi modi ti catturano. La sua storia è così commuovente….

Rhysand….. è u mistero. Lo odi e lo ami. Amo odiarlo e odio Amarlo . Il legame che si crea con Feyre è speciale e la sua rivalità con Tamlin….

E’ così difficile spiegare il turbine d’emozioni che ho provato nel leggere questo libro .

Quindi userò le gif

be spero di essere stata esplicita!

Regina Rossa by Victoria Aveyard 

Questo libro ha l’avviso “DANGER” proprio allegato d’avanti perché era d’obbligo.

Vi giuro che ho trovato questo libro per caso mentre ero in libreria e quando l’ho visto sono stata troppo tentata…

Dio mi sono rovinata da sola. Un’altra volta. Ormai mi sembra d’obbligo! Sono diventata ufficialmente psicologicamente autolesionista!

Ma voi mi chiederete “perché è un brutto libro?” . E dio vi rispondero : No . Perché è troppo giusto. Niente è come questo libro. L’Aveyard ha costruito una tela di personaggi, fatti, eventi, intrighi e colpi di scena  così intricata ed equilibrata da diventare Distruttiva!

Il finale  è distruttivo. Ti stravolge, è qualcosa di …. disumano.

Non sei preparato all’evenienza. E anche se lo fossi non farebbe differenza.

C’è un tale mix di fantascienza , poteri ,distruzione , amore , amicizia , mistero , odio e bugie …. che è difficile riprendersi . Sei così sicuro di quello che accadrà e poi …Pub!

E’ qualcosa di micidiale .

I personaggi sono formidabili. Mare è la solita scansa fatiche , che non vede più speranza nel futuro e d’improvviso si ritrova in un mondo che non è suo. Deve diventare una bugia , deve mentire per sopravvivere e quando finalmente crede di avere tutto in pugno , scopre che anche quella non era altro che una bugia .

Questa serie è un gioco di potere continuo. Non ti puoi fidare di nessuno.

Chiunque può tradire chiunque

E ti sembra così vera …. come aprire gli occhi.

E svegliarsi in un incubo.

Il triangolo  amoroso è stupefacente . C’è un tale feeling tra i tre protagonisti che fino all’ultimo sei indeciso su dove schierarti…..

Maeven perheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeé?!

No scusate non ce la faccio…..

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??

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

Aedion x Chaol on Tumbrl

CHAOL X AEDION DRABBLE – “ME @ GOD: ARE YOU SEEING THIS SHIT?”

This is for thegoldenttrio, who I had a lovely long conversation with last night about just how gay Aedion Ashryver is for Chaol. Enjoy.


Celaena had been nagging at Chaol about pulling his hair back from his eyes for the past fifteen minutes, and it was starting to grate.

“We’re trying to save the world,” he reminded her.

“Can’t do that with hair all over your face,” she shot back. “Just – tuck it behind your ear, or something!”

Sighing, Chaol leaned back from the maps of Adarlan and pulled his hand over his scalp, trying to push it all over to the side. Wow. Celaena was right – it had gotten kind of long. Maybe he should –

It was then that he noticed Aedion had stopped talking about battle plans and was staring at him.

“What?” Chaol said.

Aedion continued glaring in stony silence, eyes falling from his hand (which was hovering, frozen, above his head), to his hair, to his face.

“Aedion, what is it?” Chaol asked, beginning to feel equal parts bewildered and annoyed.

“Fucking hair.”

Chaol blinked, seeing Dorian smother a smile behind his hand out of the corner of his eye. “I beg your pardon?”

Aedion raised his eyes to the heavens, swore under his breath once more, then returned to talking about battle charges like nothing had happened.

So remember in Heir of Fire when Aedion and Chaol are talking and Aedion’s like “yeah there’s no way Aelin’s going to see the battlefield” and Chaol thinks to himself “haha I can’t wait to see that argument”???

Well I have this AU where Aelin is back and they’ve gathered all the loyal nobles from Terrasen and they’re in a war council and they’re planning and Aelin’s just like “yeah I’ll lead the charge on the left flank” or something like that and then Aedion’s like “oh hell no” and Aelin’s like “oh hell yes” and then they argue like that for a while but no one seems to be winning and eventually Aedion says “I’ll fight you for it. You choose the weapons and whoever wins decides where you’ll be during the battle.” And Aelin thinks for a minute and then smirks faintly and just says “no.” And Aedion’s just like “haha you’re scared you can’t beat me” and then Aelin says “no, Aedion, I could whoop your ass in a fight but I’m the Queen and what I say goes. You can sit out of this battle in my place if you want, though.” And then Aelin shuts his mouth and everybody else in the room is thinking “Aelin’s awesome we have the coolest queen in Erilea.” And Chaol’s just like “I knew this argument was going to be entertaining but that was way better than I thought.” And Rowan’s smirking and thinking to himself “that’s my girl.” And then Aelin leads the charge on the left flank and totally kicks ass and Aedion’s like “damn Aelin’s such a badass.”

So yeah.

CHAOL X AEDION DRABBLE – SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS

I swear to god, thegoldenttrio, I should be writing my actual work but instead I’m just churning out Chaolaedion. Damn it.


Chaol lay in the dark, staring up at the ceiling, and regretting almost everything that had happened to lead to this situation.
It had been a relatively normal night so far, with Aedion going to sleep almost an hour earlier than him with a small (and admittedly endearing) snuffle and a soft shifting of his legs. But now? Now was when the problem started.
“Aedion.”
Nothing.
“Aedion.”
Still nothing.
“Aedion!”
There was a small groan and a croaked, “what?”
“Move.”
“What?”
“Move. You’re taking up too much space.”
Aedion’s face emerged from the pillow, blinking sleepily. Yet still, he managed to look incredulous. “I beg your pardon?”
Chaol gestured at the mattress, where he was just half an inch from the edge and Aedion took up the majority of the space. “I’m hanging off the edge here. Please move.”
Aedion didn’t do anything but glare for a couple of seconds, then made a grumbling noise. Chaol yelped, finding his back suddenly squashed against Aedion’s chest.
“Shut up and go to sleep,” Aedion mumbled into Chaol’s hair.
Chaol tried to break free, but Aedion said immediately, “don’t wiggle, or it will be awkward for the both of us.”
Celaena found them in a position she called ‘spooning’ the next morning. Fleetfoot eventually jumped on the bed and woke them up, but not before she had called Dorian to have a look and apparently agreed with him that they would both refer to Chaol and Aedion as nothing but “little spoon” and “big spoon” for the rest of the day.

CHAOL X AEDION DRABBLE – AEDION’S HAIR

Chaol gets fussy about Aedion’s hair. Bickering ensues. Dorian and Celaena hang around just because it’s funny.( thegoldenttrio​ more fluff because I’m weak)


It began one afternoon while scouring family trees in the library with Dorian.

Aedion’s hair was falling over his face in a soft curtain, swinging rhythmically with every breath. The golden strands would edge into the side of Chaol’s vision, back and forth, back and forth, until eventually his self-control slipped.

“Tie your hair back,” he said quietly.

“I’m sorry?”

“Your hair,” said Chaol, “it’s distracting. Tie it back.”

Aedion stared at him for a long moments, then slowly and deliberately moved his head sideways, dragging the ends of his hair across the pages of the book. “No.”

Chaol stubbornly ignored Dorian’s silent distracting, eh?

***

It turned into an ongoing argument after that. It graduated from terse requests to tie it back, to throwing at him lengths of cord to use as hair ties, to literally grabbing his head and pulling it back every time he walked into the room. Every time Chaol tied it, it would take Aedion only a couple of seconds to shake it loose.

Celaena and Dorian watched them bicker with profound amusement, she attempting to maintain a straight face and Dorian going bright pink from trying not to laugh aloud. Chaol was fairly sure Aedion was playing deadpan to make his cousin laugh.

After several weeks of constant battle, Chaol decided to end it. He issued an ultimatum – either Aedion cut his hair, or Chaol would get Fleetfoot (who was now nearing the weight of a small horse) to sit on him and do it himself.

Aedion came to Chaol’s bedchambers soon enough, with an apology and an immaculate braid courtesy of his cousin.

CHAOL X AEDION DRABBLE – SHARING CLOTHES

I haven’t written anything for a couple of days and thought hey, why not? (Forthegoldenttrio)


It took only several seconds for Celaena to notice.
“Why is your tunic so big?”
Chaol felt his face heat up, self-consciously brushing a hand over said tunic. It was definitely a little big, the collar revealing too much undershirt and one shoulder almost slipping off. The belt he’d cinched it in with was doing as much as it could – which wasn’t a lot.
Dorian looked up at the question, and joined the assassin in scrutinizing him. “Have you been eating properly?” the prince said after a moment.
“Yes,” Chaol grumbled.
Dorian’s eyes scrunched up and he tilted his head to the side in a manner reminiscent of Fleetfoot. Celaena copied him without realizing it.
Chaol shifted under their gaze, snapping when they both began to twist their heads in the other direction.
“It’s just a big tunic!” he said sharply.
They both raised their hands in gestures of surrender, Celaena giving an exaggerated shrug.
The rest of the day passed relatively normally, although occasionally Chaol would turn and catch one – or sometimes both – of his friends eyeing the tunic thoughtfully. The mystery (for them, at least) was solved when Aedion strode in around dinner time from a day spent hunting, immediately spotted Chaol, and said unnecessarily loudly, “you should wear my clothes more often.”
Celaena snorted into her drink.
Dorian fell off his chair.

CHAOL X AEDION ONE SHOT – HOLD MY HAND

I wrote this mostly just for thegoldenttrio‘s reaction…….you’re welcome.


“Where’s Aedion?”

For some reason, Chaol felt like he was both invisible and drowning at the same time. Everyone was rushing around him, swerving like he was a cold spot – or like they were a hurricane and he was the eye of the storm. A tight feeling had settled in his chest, as if he was underwater and running out of air.

“Where’s Aedion?” he repeated, louder. He could see Dorian and Celaena tending to one another’s wounds a little way off, thankfully not seriously injured – split lips and bruises and Dorian was limping slightly, but nothing life-threatening.

Aedion, however, had disappeared during the fight and had not been seen since. Panic was beginning to set in.

“Where’s Aedion?” he said once more, silently begging someone, anyone, to take notice.

“Aedion?”

Chaol whipped round, internally thanking the gods. A tall, imposing young woman with long, pale hair, a red cloak, and intimidating eyes was standing there, looking at him intently, wiping scarlet blood on her cloak off the end of –

Chaol blinked, swallowing dryly. Iron nails. An ironteeth witch.

“I,” he began, coughed, swallowed again, and said, “yes. Aedion Ashryver – do you know where he is?”

The witch jerked her chin in Celaena and Dorian’s direction. “Her cousin?”

“Yes.”

“I saw him getting carried off,” she said, and Chaol felt like his stomach had just dropped out of his feet. “Wound in the side. Looked deep. Bad, but I don’t think it will be fatal.”

Chaol croaked, “where?”

She tilted her head to the right. “Third sickroom on the left.”

Chaol made a mental note to thank her later, and ran.

The room stank of copper and sweat and a horrible rotten smell that reminded him of vomit was coming from the corner, but Chaol only had eyes for the body on the bed. The massive Ashryver was sprawled on the thin mattress, a light sheen of perspiration covering his skin, armour off and shirt ripped at the side. A bloody bandage formed a lump against Aedion’s side, and his hair was swirling in slender golden threads across the folded tunic acting as a pillow.

Chaol kneeled by the side of the bed and touched Aedion’s forehead hesitantly. “Aedion?”

There was a tense moment when nothing happened, then his eyelids peeled themselves apart and he groaned quietly. “Chaol?”

Chaol felt a lump rise in his throat as his hand moved in a comforting movement , Aedion leaning deliriously into the touch. He’d never seen the Wolf of the North look so vulnerable before. This was Aedion in an almost childlike state, something completely unfamiliar to both Chaol and, he suspected, almost everyone Aedion knew. “Shhh. Don’t strain yourself.”

Aedion made an unintelligible murmur, eyes half-open, and reached an arm up. He took Chaol’s hand – gently, so gently, had Aedion ever handled anything without his signature brute strength, was this the first time in years? – and held it.

“I told you to be careful,” Chaol whispered, unable to help himself. “Now look at you.”

Aedion finally managed to focus his eyes, and if he’d had the strength to roll them, Chaol suspected he would have. He twined their fingers together. “Shut up and hold my hand, captain.”

CHAOL X AEDION DRABBLE – “I’M HIS HUSBAND”

Because thegoldenttrio made me do it.


Chaol was wondering, yet again, why he had agreed to marry Aedion Ashryver.

It happened in under three seconds, and it took him another two seconds to register it – Aedion shaking the hand of a very important army general from Eyllwe, saying, “hello. I’m Chaol Westfall’s husband, Aedion.”

It had obviously taken both Dorian and Celaena shorter amounts of time to gather what had happened, as there was a sudden duet of snorting and Chaol knew that if he turned around he’d see the both of them with their arms wrapped around their midriffs, blue in the face from trying not to laugh.

Chaol could feel the blush rising on his neck, so he tapped Aedion on the elbow and hissed, “that’s really not necessary”, all the while acutely aware of the general’s amused expression.

Aedion raised an eyebrow at his husband, and offered his hand again to the general. “I must apologize,” he said smoothly, without missing a beat. “I am the captain of the guard’s husband, Aedion.”

Chaol flashed an obscene gesture behind his back at Dorian and Celaena.
