HELLO GUYS AND HAPPY WEEKEND! I was tagged to do this tag by Anette @ Anette Reads (who’s also the creator!) several months ago and Beth @ Reading Every Night more recently! I don’t usually talk about my OTPs a lot, but this has allowed me to do so in a more casual way so I hope you enjoy this post. 😛

Top Ten Books I’ve Changed My Mind On

Top-Ten-Tuesday-Books-I-Changed-My-Mind-On-Book-Blog

Hello and welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday list! This week’s theme has to do with books we feel differently about after time has passed, which is such an interesting topic personally. I’ve been reading YA for give or take ten years, essentially since I was an actual teen, and when I look back, occasionally I’d find myself disliking books I used to love.

Author: Sarah J. Maas
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Extent: 562 pages
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Goodreads Description

Consumed by guilt and rage, Celaena can’t bring herself to spill blood for the King of Adarlan. She must fight back…

The Immortal Queen will help her destroy the king–for a price. But as Celaena battles with her darkest memories and her heart breaks for a love that could never last, can she fulfil the bargain and head the almighty court of Terrasen? And who will stand with her?

Review

Heir of Fire is really lengthy and it also feels really lengthy–that’s not a good thing. When I read a lengthy book that doesn’t have enough to keep me engaged, I skim it until I find a part interesting enough to hold my attention. With this book, I skimmed most of Celaena’s parts and really only paid attention to Chaol’s and Dorian’s–their lives were more interesting, with more at stake.

Crown-of-Midnight-Book-Review-Sarah-J-Maas

Title: Crown of Midnight (2013)
Series: Throne of Glass – Book 2
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Extent: 418 pages
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Goodreads Description

Crowned by Evil. Bound by Duty. Divided by Love.

Celaena Sardothien, royal assassin, is the King of Adarlan’s deadliest weapon. She must win her freedom through his enemies’ blood – but she cannot bear to kill for the crown. And every death Celaena fakes, every lie she tells, put those she loves at risk.

Torn between her two protectors – a captain and a prince – and battling a dark force far greater than the king, Celaena must decide what she will fight for: her liberty, her heart or the fate of a kingdom…

Review

Before I start, I should mention that I gave Throne of Glass a one-star rating mainly because Celaena annoyed me to death. I found her extremely unbelievable as an assassin and utterly vain, and the romance (apparently one of the main selling points for most people) rather lacking as neither of the love interest, well, interested me. I picked up Crown of Midnight because other bloggers told me it’s much better.
