I am re reading HoF again because... Why not.
Am I the only one whose heart just flutters when Rowan says her name for the first time?
"just wait, Aelin"
And I know that at that point they are at each other's throat but still... It always gives me fuzzy feelings.

🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒
~ “Celaena 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.” ― Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire 🍒🍒🍒 ~ “Even when this world is a forgotten whisper of dust between the stars, I will always love you.” ― Sarah J. Maas, Empire of Storms 🍒🍒🍒 “What 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. I’d still pick you. I’ll always pick you.” ― Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight 🍒🍒🍒 ~“Only promise me one thing, if I do go, give us a happy ending, will you? In your book?” “I don’t believe in endings” ― Cassandra Clare, Chain of Iron 🍒🍒🍒 ~“If 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.” ― Cassandra Clare, Chain of Iron 🍒🍒🍒 ~“Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.” ― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel 🍒🍒🍒 ~“Ah,” said a voice from the doorway, “having your annual ‘everyone thinks Will is a lunatic’ meeting, are you? “It’s biannual,” said Jem. “And no, this is not that meeting.” ― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince 🍒🍒🍒 ~“Anyone who says women are weak is afraid they're too strong.” ― Cassandra Clare, Ghosts of the Shadow Market 🍒🍒🍒 ~“And 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.” ― Cassandra Clare, Lord of Shadows😥 🍒🍒🍒 “But death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years.” ― Sarah J. Maas, Crown of Midnight 🍒🍒🍒 “It is not such a hard thing, is it - to die for your friends.” ― Sarah J. Maas, Empire of Storms 🍒🍒🍒 “She had lied to him. She had wanted to save lives, yes. But she had gone out there with no intention of saving her own.” ― Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire 🍒🍒🍒 “Before I die, I want to...be the person I’m meant to be and have that be enough.” ― Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places 🍒🍒🍒 “You have to live your life like you’ll never be sorry. It’s easier just to do the right thing from the start so there’s nothing to apologize for.” ― Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places 🍒🍒🍒 “By the time we’re done, their guests have gathered outside to see the boy who must have flowers to give to the girl he loves.” ― Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places 🍒🍒🍒 “I 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.” ― Lauren Oliver, Delirium 🍒🍒🍒 “Sometimes 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.” ― Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium 🍒🍒🍒 “That is the rule of the Wilds: You must be bigger and stronger and tougher. You must hurt or be hurt.” ― Lauren Oliver, Requiem 🍒🍒🍒 “I 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.” ― Lauren Oliver, Delirium 🍒🍒🍒 “One 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.” ― Lauren Oliver, Delirium 🍒🍒🍒 “Now I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.” ― Lauren Oliver, Delirium 🍒🍒🍒 “His 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.” ― Lauren Oliver, Delirium

It’s been a busy month, with being in a stay at home order and everything. Apparently I have a lot to say about the books I didn’t enjoy over the books I did enjoy.
Left to right:
1) spoilers: uh not one of my favourite thrillers I’ve read... had really high hopes for this one but it kind of just fell flat for me. The concept seemed really neat with the dead girl sending the main lead a friend request on Facebook but then when it was revealed that it was the mother I started losing interest and I found the main concept for the book was lost considering the Facebook account meant nothing for the actual murders plot. I felt the ending was rushed and also what’s with the main character saying a few nice words to the murder then he’s like “you know what yeah you’re right I’ll walk away.” He killed to keep his secrets and abused the main character obviously there’s some sort of psychopath mind there and I doubt a few nice words would have actually stopped someone who’s already killed for their secret! And then the main character in the morning just gets up opens the locked door goes to make breakfast and let’s her son wonder the house like a normal morning! I’d be screaming and calling the police and running to the neighbours! This book got me heated and not in a good way! Not worth it in my opinion. Thank you, next.
2) it can only go up hill from the last book right? Think again! This one was also a one star read for me. Again loved the concept: flight attendant wakes up next to a dead man. Who done it? Her? Maybe? Find out? Anyways, it’s basically revealed in the second chapter who killed him and then there all this spy stuff going on behind the scenes which isn’t really what I’m interested in. But here’s what tanked the book for me (spoilers). So main character returns to her room with her hot Italian play thing and then a trained professional spy/killer is waiting for her. He’s easily over powered after a gun back fires on him and main characters hot Italian play thing pins this trained professional. No trained professional is like “ok you got me aha how about you become a spy too??” Book ends with a epilogue and suddenly main character has had a baby with the dead guy from the start of the book and is now a mole for Russia? America? Not sure. What happened to hot Italian play thing? Is he just going to be quiet about the whole thing and then all of main characters family do they not worry what happened to her? And don’t get me started on the super weird twist that was only mentioned in a FBI report of some other flight attendant being a spy too. What are the chances. Not my favourite.
3) Finally a thriller that I liked! once again Peter Sawnson doesn’t fail to disappoint. I think I’m becoming quite the fan of his work! Me and my friend tandem read this novel and discussed theories. It was a lot of fun and so many twist and turns. I called who the killer was after intensely studying every sentence because I wanted to call it before my friend. Competitive even when it’s not a competition. Meanwhile my friend came up with a amazing theory regarding the cats name “Nero” that actually panned out and I was pretty blown away considering she really had to deep dive for it. It was a weird book to read and I found myself actually wanting the eight perfect murders to be completed and at the end they kind of were.
4) I needed a break from the heavier and darker books I’ve been reading and picked up Sally Thorne newest book and let me tell you it was worth it. This book was completely cute and had me feeling all types of ways. I fell in love with the characters and the story. I will never forget the talking through the wall while taking a bath scene and when Ruthie stared tracing the word GIVE on Teddy’s fingers I was in love.
5) Prince Carden. That’s it that’s all I have to say. Just kidding. I got this book on sale on audible and enjoyed it so much that I picked up the box set to continue the series. I really loved the dynamic between Jude and Carden more so when she has the upper hand. He’s definitely a bully but I couldn’t help falling in love him and obviously Jude as well. I enjoyed the twist at the end and I’m very excited to see where this series takes me.
6/7) both these books were absolutely amazing! I started the series a couple months about enjoying the first two books but also not falling in love with them. Don’t get me wrong I was liking them but after reading Sarah j Maas’ other stuff the first two books felt a little young however after reading Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows I understand the hype now. The world building and characters are beyond amazing and with the story really ramping up now I was drawn in. I took a break between reading the two and I was glancing at Queen of Shadows between every page of Flight Attendant just so excited to start it. I loved meeting all the new characters *cough* Rowan *cough* and getting to know them. And that reunion scene! I mean come one.
8) This one hurt me. I didn’t think that I’d feel so strongly towards Sam but Sarah j Maas once again made me have strong feelings. This book was heart wrenching and I felt sick when reading about the state of Sam’s body... made the revenge on Arobynn that much better in Queen of Shadows. I didn’t think I enjoy the prequel so much but knowing some of Celaena’s adventures before the Endovier salt mines gave me a better understanding of her as well as the relationships between not only her and Sam but her and Arobynn as well. I’m really glad I read this before going into Queen of Shadows. It really added to the story over all.

What I’d Want Out of a ToG Adaptation
So I’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 I’m surprised by how I’m enjoying it! All I want in life is at least eight seasons of a TV-14-rated (idk, I don’t actually understand ratings 🌚) animated adaptation except SJM isn’t actually involved and it’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 Chaol’s disability better and of course the whole aGe GaPs thing.
And also, Celaena’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! 👏 Idk, I know this is super rambly and incoherent but I’m tired and new to Tumblr and have honestly no idea how to use it so bear with me... 🤦🏼‍♀️

Lochan Family Appreciation Post
Elide had the best parents. They would be so proud. Her story is a very on brand Lochan one.
Marion did everything in her power to protect Aelin, at the cost of her life. Marion bought her time and knew she would die, knowing she wouldn’t see her own daughter or husband again.
Elide escaped the abuse of her uncle, and with nothing but her wits helped save her kingdom and queen.
As for her father Cal, loving someone considered unlovable and unworthy is a very Lochan act.
Her father “becoming the dirtiest man in the castle”, so that he could see his future wife who started as “ a bastard born servant laundress”.
Making her Lady of Perranth.
Just like Elide made Lorcan, Lord Lochan.

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
