Quotes and Cherries
~ โ€œCelaena walked and walked, until she found herself by the tree-lined shore of a lake, glaringly bright in the midday sun. She figured it was as good a spot as any as she crumpled to the mossy bank, as her arms wrapped tight around herself and she bowed over her knees. There was nothing that could be done to fix her. And she was...she was... A whimpering noise came out of her, lips trembling to hard she had to clamp down to keep the sound inside. -- She vaguely felt the light shifting on the lake. Vaguely felt the sighing wind, warm as it brushed against her damp cheeks. And heard, so soft it was as if she dreamed it, a woman's voice whispering, Why are you crying, Fireheart?... Because I am lost, she whispered onto the earth. And I do not know the way.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~ โ€œEven when this world is a forgotten whisper of dust between the stars, I will always love you.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Empire of Storms ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œWhat does that mean? he demanded. She smiled sadly. You'll figure it out. And when you do... She shook her head, knowing she shouldn't say it, but doing it anyway. When you do, I want you to remember that it wouldn't have made any difference to me. It's never made any difference to me when it came to you. Iโ€™d still pick you. Iโ€™ll always pick you.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œOnly promise me one thing, if I do go, give us a happy ending, will you? In your book?โ€ โ€œI donโ€™t believe in endingsโ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Chain of Iron ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œIf this were The Beautiful Cordelia, a mad but handsome duke would come staggering across the heath, but nothing ever happened as it did in books.โ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Chain of Iron ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œOnly the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.โ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œAh,โ€ said a voice from the doorway, โ€œhaving your annual โ€˜everyone thinks Will is a lunaticโ€™ meeting, are you? โ€œItโ€™s biannual,โ€ said Jem. โ€œAnd no, this is not that meeting.โ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œAnyone who says women are weak is afraid they're too strong.โ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Ghosts of the Shadow Market ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ ~โ€œAnd there in front of her was Julian, his eyes and ears closed to anything but Livvy, her body cradled against his. She seemed a drift of fragile ash or snow, something impermanent that had blown into his arms accidentally: the petal of a faerie flower, the white feather of an angel's wing. The dream of a little girl, the memory of a sister reaching up her arms: Julian, Julian, carry me.โ€ โ€• Cassandra Clare, Lord of Shadows๐Ÿ˜ฅ ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œBut death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œIt is not such a hard thing, is it - to die for your friends.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Empire of Storms ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œShe had lied to him. She had wanted to save lives, yes. But she had gone out there with no intention of saving her own.โ€ โ€• Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œBefore I die, I want the person Iโ€™m meant to be and have that be enough.โ€ โ€• Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œYou have to live your life like youโ€™ll never be sorry. Itโ€™s easier just to do the right thing from the start so thereโ€™s nothing to apologize for.โ€ โ€• Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œBy the time weโ€™re done, their guests have gathered outside to see the boy who must have flowers to give to the girl he loves.โ€ โ€• Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œI said, I prefer the ocean when it's gray. Or not really gray. A pale, in-between color. It reminds me of waiting for something good to happen.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Delirium ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œSometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you - sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œThat is the rule of the Wilds: You must be bigger and stronger and tougher. You must hurt or be hurt.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Requiem ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œI run for I don't know how long. Hours, maybe, or days. Alex told me to run. So I run. You have to understand. I am no one special. I am just a single girl. I am five feet two inches tall and I am in-between in every way. But I have a secret. You can build walls all the way to the sky and I will find a way to fly above them. You can try to pin me down with a hundred thousand arms, but I will find a way to resist. And there are many of us out there, more than you think. People who refuse to stop believing. People who refuse to come to earth. People who love in a world without walls, people who love into hate, into refusal, against hope,and without fear. I love you. Remember. They cannot take it.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Delirium ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œOne of the strangest things about life is that it will chug on, blind and oblivious, even as your private world - your little carved-out sphere - is twisting and morphing, even breaking apart. One day you have parents; the next day you're an orphan. One day you have a place and a path. The next day you're lost in the wilderness. And still the sun rises and clouds mass and drift and people shop for groceries and toilets flush and blinds go up and down. That's when you realize that most of it - life, the relentless mechanism of existing - isn't about you. It doesn't include you at all. It will thrust onward even after you've jumped the edge. Even after you're dead.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Delirium ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œNow I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Delirium ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ โ€œHis eyes are blazing with light, more light than all the lights in every city in the whole world, more light than we could ever invent if we had ten thousand billion years.โ€ โ€• Lauren Oliver, Delirium

What Iโ€™d Want Out of a ToG Adaptation
So Iโ€™m currently rereading ToG for the first time (first read it uhhh maybe two or three years ago and my views on books have changed a fair bit since then) and Iโ€™m surprised by how Iโ€™m enjoying it! All I want in life is at least eight seasons of a TV-14-rated (idk, I donโ€™t actually understand ratings ๐ŸŒš) animated adaptation except SJM isnโ€™t actually involved and itโ€™s led by Noelle Stevenson or someone like him who will make everyone queer (ok, Celaena/Aelin can be straight because I struggle to see her as sapphic) and make the characters and of course the cast and crew behind the scened super diverse and avoid so much White feminist nonsense and solve things like brutally killing off so many of the WOC and handling Chaolโ€™s disability better and of course the whole aGe GaPs thing.
And also, Celaenaโ€™s relationship with food and vomiting in this first book kind of makes me feel like there might be room to explore her potentially struggling with an eating disorder? It could fit with her character and would make for another level of internal conflict that in some ways would parallel her overall arc (if handled well, of course). And of course it would be absolutely amazing (Maybe even groundbreaking?) to see such a badass female lead struggle with something that is so frequently swept under the rug! ๐Ÿ‘ Idk, I know this is super rambly and incoherent but Iโ€™m tired and new to Tumblr and have honestly no idea how to use it so bear with me... ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

Dude, SJM really didn't pull any punches with the beginning of KoA, did she? I remember before/when it first came out everyone was like "I wonder how long it'll be until we get an Aelin chapter?" And SJM really said "Bet. Chapter 2. Read it and (literally) weep, bitches."

I think one of the most heartbreaking things about Aelin's touture in Kingdom of Ash was that it was made up of all things she had already endured. It was meant to show Aelin that all of her suffering still couldn't prepare her for this. The darkness, the captivity, the emotional manipulation and physical abuse- she'd learned all that from Endovier, and even before from Arobyenn. But none of that suffering was compared to what she went through and it makes all of it just that much more painful

Queen of Shadows
it is my own personal headcanon that the stone Rowan put on Sam's grave was a thank you for loving and looking out for Aelin for all those years before he met her
in case anyone needs me, I'll be weeping for the foreseeable future

Tower of Dawn is a good book, although not my favorite in the series. But I really, really appreciate how SJM was like "you know what this series needs? Some giant fucking birds, that's what." ๐Ÿ˜‚

I have to admit that the ONLY reason I read Crown Of Midnight is to see Dorian discover his powers. Like he is so powerful and everybody just glossed over it...!
I really liked the other characters, but I was into the first few books and the last few for Dorian (and Manon, especially when Dorian shape-shifted omg) and skimmed through the middle booksย โ€˜till he killed his dad lolย

Throne of Glass re-read thoughts: Chapters 66-89 of Queen of Shadows is, in my opinion, some of SJM's best writing. We all know that with both of her series she improves with every book, and I still believe that's true of ToG, but these chapters, freeing magic, bringing down the glass castle, killing the king, bringing down Morath... I've always appreciated it, but I really slowed down and took it all in on this read and honestly, it's so raw and painful and searingly hopeful. This might be the first time since I first picked up the series that this particular book made me cry. I might edit this later, and add some of my favorite quotes, once I've had some time to process. Kudos to SJM for this one. I'm reeling a little.

ToG re-read update: Started Queen of Shadows today. I feel like this is such an underrated book in this series. I genuinely love it so much. I think I'm going to read Tower of Dawn next, before Empire of Storms. I'm not mentally or emotionally stable enough to handle that gap between EoS and KoA... Like, obviously I know what's gonna happen, but thinking about it still makes me nauseous.
