It is Day 23 of the 30-day-book-challenge, which means today’s prompt is a book that has been on your TBR for ages! The actual prompt was a book you’ve wanted to read for a long time, but still haven’t, but that was too long to put on my pretty graphic above without changing the font size, but I didn’t want to do that because then it wouldn’t match the rest, so I made an alteration, but it still means the same thing!
Technicalities of the prompt aside, the book I have chosen to talk about today is the Throne of Glass series by Sarah.J.Maas. I know this is a very controversial series, but since I clearly haven’t read it I am not really in a place to add to that discussion. I think once I have read them, I will be doing a series review on them, so that I can add my voice to the discussion. Now to why I haven’t read them yet…
I do actually own all of the books in the series now, which a lot of people might think is a waste of money, but am very good at knowing whether or not I am going to like books and I have good feeling about these despite the fact that they are quite problematic. The real reason I haven’t read them yet though it because I was waiting for the final book to come out. I am awful at waiting for new books to come out and much prefer to marathon my series all in one go, so I didn’t want to start a series that wasn’t finished yet. That is really the only real reason why I haven’t read them. It isn’t because I have been put off by the hype or because I have been told a lot of negative things about them. It was just that I’m impatient and didn’t want to wait to find out what happened! Now that the final book is out though I will be reading them in early next year, so you can look forward to a series review probably around February/March time.
What book has been on your TBR for far too long? Have you read the Throne of Glass series and if so what side of the argument are you on? Is there anything I should look out for while I’m reading? I’d love to know, so tell me in the comments below or over on my Instagram (@theoriginalbookdragon)
Goodbye for now!
Over and Out
