Quote Corner #24: Throne of Glass

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you’re all doing well. 🙂 I can’t believe that it’s August already – time sure is flying!!
Today I’m sharing a collection of my favourite quotes from Sarah J, Maas’s Throne of Glass.
Happy reading!!

Libraries were full of ideas—perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.

“You could rattle the stars,” she whispered. “You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”

She moaned into her pillow. “Go away. I feel like dying.”
“No fair maiden should die alone,” he said, putting a hand on hers. “Shall I read to you in your final moments? What story would you like?”
She snatched her hand back. “How about the story of the idiotic prince who won’t leave the assassin alone?”
“Oh! I love that story! It has such a happy ending, too—why, the assassin was really feigning her illness in order to get the prince’s attention! Who would have guessed it? Such a clever girl. And the bedroom scene is so lovely—it’s worth reading through all of their ceaseless banter!”

“My name is Celaena Sardothien. But it makes no difference if my name’s Celaena or Lillian or Bitch, because I’d still beat you, no matter what you call me.”

I read Throne of Glass so many years ago that I can hardly even remember what it was about, but I do remember that I loved it!! I really enjoy Sarah J. Maas’s writing style. I always find such pretty quotes like these in her novels! ❤

Quote Corner #14: A Court of Thorns and Roses

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you’re all having a great day! 😉
Today I’m sharing some lovely quotes that I pulled out of A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas!
I hope you enjoy! ❤

I was as unburdened as a piece of dandelion fluff, and he was the wind that stirred me about the world.

Don’t feel bad for one moment about doing what brings you joy.

“I love you,’ he whispered, and kissed my brow. ‘Thorns and all.”

“You look . . . better than before.”
Was that a compliment? I could have sworn Lucien gave Tamlin an encouraging nod.
“And you hair is . . . clean.”

This book was so entertaining, although I definitely enjoyed the second book more than the first. As a huge fan of Beauty and the Beast, I liked the unique twist on the classic tale. The characters were also fantastic, especially Feyre and Rhysand, both of whom underwent phenomenal character development throughout the series. I didn’t mind Tamlin in the first book, but my goodness, he’s got nothing on Rhysand!
Unfortunately, I started the third novel but never ended up finishing, even though I had been really liking it. That was a little less than two years ago and now I forget basically everything about the series and have kind of lost interest to continue at this time. Maybe someday, though! 🙂

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
