#ad as soon as the mist descends in the woods and the days darken, i find myself drawn to fantasy - both on screen and on paper. there's nothing i enjoy more than getting completely lost in other worlds so when i saw that kingdom of ash, the final book in the throne of glass series by @therealsjmaas had been published, i knew i was ready to go on that epic journey.
and what a trip it's been so far! i've nearly finished crown of midnight, the third book (there are eight in total), and am trying to slow down a little to enjoy the experience. although it's technically ya, it's at the upper end combining fast-moving plot with dark themes and the main character, assassin celaena sardothien has a compelling story. i know that these won't be for everyone, but they're already a hit in our magic-loving family. al's mum has asked to borrow all the books after devouring one of them in 24 hours (see stories) and my mum is lined up after her. i'd better get reading!
