Empire of Storms Cover + Synopsis

 

IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS SERIES/ARE NOT CAUGHT UP, DO NOT CONTINUE READING THIS POST. THE GOODREADS SUMMARY ALONE IS SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER. SERIOUSLY DO NOT READ ANYMORE OF THIS.

~~~~~

Ok, so for those of you who have kept up with Sarah J. Maas’¬†Throne of Glass series, you probably know that we recently got a cover release and goodreads summary! If you haven’t seen it yet, here it is!

Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass, #5)

I LOVE IT! It is definitely one of the better covers of the series (although I think Queen of Shadows is still my favorite). Normally, when I see fire on a fantasy cover, it looks super cheesy and unneccessary, but this time it actually makes sense!

This cover isn’t the only thing I’m excited for, because there is also a summary!

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don’t.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin’s journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

The worst thing about Sarah J. Maas books is how I read them so fast, and then I have to wait a whole year to get the next one :(. I have no idea how I am going to wait for September 7th. There are so many things to be excited for in this book!

EDIT: I just realized that this is the second to last book, and after this one there is only one more o:

WINTER COMES OUT TOMORROW

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)

TOMoRROW. IT COMES OUT TOMORROW. Just think, there is only one more sleep before I am holding this thing in my hands. It’s been a long year and a half and I am so ready to read this book.

All 832 glorious pages. (Thank you Marissa for making it a big one ūüôā ¬†)

This is the last book. I’m pretty sad this wonderful series is over, but it sure has been a great journey. I have grown to love these characters and I can’t wait to see their last hurrah.

Not only are we getting all the characters, but we are also getting Winter. we have seen glimpses of her in the past and her childhood in Fairest, so I’m pretty interested to see how her character plays a role in all of this.

This post was very incoherent. I just needed to write something down before I read it tomorrow. I’m so excited, I’m jumping up and down on the inside! There will be a review of this glorious book up one day, but there is a large possibility that there will be a lengthy, ramble post where I talk about everything…which I’m okay with.

I have hyped this book up so much that it makes me nervous, but really, who could it disappoint! As long as Marissa doesn’t pull a Veronica Roth, I’m fine!

Hope everyone has a great time reading this book!

AHHHH IT COMES OUT TOMoRROW. AS IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS FROM NOW.

The Stages of a Reader on Release Day

Deciding what book I am going to buy next is a a serious problem for me. Especially when¬†there are days like October 6th. I’m fairly sure most of you know the happenings of OCtober 6, but for those of you don’t here are some clues.

The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #1)Carry OnLife and Death: Twilight ReimaginedHarry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: The Illustrated Edition (Harry Potter Series #1)

ALL OF THESE BOOKS CAME OUT ON OCTOBER 6th!

These are 4 very well-known authors or series that decided to release a book or special edition all on the same day. This isn’t even including all the other wonderful releases that came out this day, including¬†Patrick Ness and Cammie McGovern books. ¬†So when there is a release filled Tuesday, things can get pretty stressful for a book reader. Here are the stages some of us go through…

1. Absolute, Jump Up and Down Excitement

The first thing that goes through your mind when you wake up and see all these releases is pure thoughts of joy. What a day it is to be alive. You just want to sit there and bask in all the new books around you, and have a wonderful time reading them.

2. A small thought of having to decide

While you are still exploding with excitement, a small thought crosses your mind.¬†Which book will I read first…?¬†However, at this stage, you barely falter, and continue to jump and down in celebration.

3. the journey to the transaction

By now, you are used to the thought of all these releases, and now you want to sit down and read one of these suckers. So you make your way to the bookstore or to your kindle account and settle down ready to buy a book.

4. Reality hitting you like a ton of bricks

This is where everything gets real. You are ready to buy your book when all the happy balloons of celebration pop simultaneously in your head. WHICH ONE WILL I READ FIRST??  This is not like any typical release day where you buy your anticipated book and go on with your life. No, this day you have to choose between two or three of your favorites.

5. Figuring out where your loyalties stand

Now you are doing your research. Which of these book are you really most excited to read? What have you waited longest for? What author or series have you been connected to longer.

6. Not Knowing what to do

You are sad, You have looked at the facts, and¬†still don’t know how to decide.

7. You have found the solution

Just as you are about to do the eenie-meenie-miney mo trick, a thought comes across your mind. Why not just buy all the books? Sure you may not have enough for food, but you can survive….right? It may seem like a crazy thought, but you have already accepted that you are a crazy fangirl. You happily pile two or three books up in your arms and happily make your way to the counter. You just can’t wait to read these books.

Alright that was just a little humorous, exaggerated post about how stressful these days are.  We all think we have to choose, but then remember that we think it is completely normal to stay up for days reading our new releases. If you had an anticipated book coming out on this day, or several, I hope you have/had a great time reading them!

Here is the list of authors that will be writing a story for this book.

This is a very interesting group. I’m not really familiar with half of these authors but I do know Leigh Bardugo, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Nina LaCour, VERONICA ROTH, Jennifer E.
