Since I’m currently reading the Throne of Glass series and I’m absolutely loving it, I decided to make this week’s Top Ten Tuesday all about it! (Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish!) This week’s topic is “Reasons I love X.” I thought of about a hundred different topics, made a few lists and in the end decided to delete them all! Finally, I came to the conclusion Throne of Glass would be a great topic, so here it is: ten reasons I love Throne of Glass!
Ten Reasons I Love X — could be a certain book, character, author, your indie bookstore, a fandom, a tv show, reading, a hobby, a genre. Honestly anything you want to gush about.
1. The Books
Okay, this seems beyond obvious, but have you seen the stunning and beautiful hardcover editions of the series!? I’m all heart eyes for them and they look amazing on my shelf.
2. The Map
I am kind of obsessed with maps in books, so Throne of Glass having this gorgeous map is definitely a reason why I love this series so much.
3. The Love Triangle
Anyone who’s read my reviews knows I’m really annoyed with love triangles! Like, so annoyed they bother me sometimes. Celaena, Dorian and Chaol are like my all time favourite love triangle, though! (Next to Tessa, Will and Jem from The Infernal Devices).
4. The Plot
I LOVE the plot. I’m reading Throne of Glass for the second time in three months but it never bores me! It still all very mysterious and fun.
5. The Mystery
Like I said, I’m rereading it now. But a lot of things are still a mystery to me! I’m getting towards the end of the book now, so I’m starting to remember things, but I was a little oblivious before I got to this point, hehe!
6. The Fantasy
I’m a sucker for fantasy and to my opinion, Throne of Glass is really one of the better fantasy books. I love how I can’t say the world is historical or futuristic or dystopian because it’s a fantasy world! I LOVE the history too, like, I could read a history book about Erilea!
7. The Series
I’ve only read Throne of Glass so far, but books three to four are on my shelf, waiting to be read! I would’ve cried if this it was a standalone, really!
8. The Intimidating Sizes
The hardcover editions are big! Since I’ve started reading more, big books intimidate me a whole lot. Thing is, though, that I’m always so proud of myself for finishing such a massive book! I’ve gotten so far in Throne of Glass in a few days, while also taking enough time to enjoy reading it and it’s so much fun!
9. The Chapter Pages
I don’t know if these things have an actual name, but I love the start of new chapters. It’s not that special, but looks super pretty!
10. More books!
There’s still two more books coming! There’s also still three unread Throne of Glass books on my shelf… Hehe! I’m loving the cover or Empire of Storms and I cannot wait to see what book six will be like!
