My thoughts on Throne of Glass the first time I read it

Hey y’all! Can you believe it, another post about Sarah J Maas. Will I ever learn? xD But in this case, I’m looking back in time a bit. I found a short post I made years ago after stumbling upon Throne of Glass, my first ever Sarah J Maas read. My comments made me laugh and smile, and I just thought I’d share it here. This is a relatively old series now, but just a heads up there’s a spoiler in there for the first book!

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
This was one of the books I found by browsing through books that were available as an e-book through my library at home. What a find! While it wasn’t anything insane or totally new, it was enough to draw me in and keep me in until I finished it. I almost let myself be late for a dinner date so that I could finish it! I managed to put it down for a few hours though, and finished it in about a day. So, definitely a solid book. An 18-year-old female assassin of incredible renown is taken from a slave labor camp and entered into the king’s competition for royal assassin, basically. There’s some magic sprinkled in, and of course a love story with a handsome prince.

    LUCKILY, their love story was ended before the end, thank GOODNESS, because I didn’t really like that direction. It ended as well as it could, but the prince was all dramatic and “I could never be with someone else now that I know her!” so we’ll see how he does with it, I guess. I’m glad she’s going for the guard instead. He’s more real, and I suspect he has ties to magic somehow…maybe he can see it too? He also has a way cooler name.

Anyway, I’m currently waiting for a copy of the next one in the series. It made for a nice day’s light read in a time of turmoil (so much work for finals!!).

Amazing how much character name mattered to me 🤣


Reader, traveler, photographer, and always looking to learn!
