Day 9 - Sarah J Maas - From Susan
Author name: Sarah J Maas
Genre(s) they write: Fantasy
How I found the author: The original cover and the blurb for the Throne of Glass series made me buy the first book.
Why people should read: People should pick up any of Sarah J Maas series if they are a fan of strong female characters, swoon worthy men, captivating storylines, and a good ole plot twist thrown into the mix!
Recommended Series 1. Throne Of Glass. Okay, let's talk series in the order they were first released. The Throne of Glass series starts with an assassin, as all great books do, and an offer made to her by a prince - defeat twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition to find the greatest assassin in the land, she will become the king’s champion and earn her freedom from captivity. Celaena Sardothien accepts the offer, and inserts herself in the castle, where a world without magic is ruled by a cruel king.
Recommended Series 1. - A Court Of Throne And Roses. Next, let's talk about one of my fave Sarah J Maas series, A Court of Thorns and Roses. People describe the first few books as a kind of beauty and the best retelling, and I can see that, but this series is so much more than that. with all Sarah J Maas books, the strength and power of women to overcome is front and center, and just when you think the story is going to go in one direction, Sarah completely throws you a curve ball.
I'm excited that A Court of Thorns and Roses is being made into a TV series, but am nervous that they will mess it up!!! Casting is key!!
Recommended Series 3. - Crescent City. The most recent series that was released is the Crescent City Series. A story of revenge and danger, Bryce is a half fae, half human who doesn't like to do what she's told. Fiercely protective of the family she has chosen, she will do anything to find out what happened when her friend is murdered. A lot of people throw shade at this series, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and am eagerly awaiting the next installment.
Conclusion: You can't go wrong with any of these series to be fair, as there is something for everyone. It's one of those series you should read before the TV series, because the books are epic, and it will make you love the TV series even more.
