Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas- Book Review
Book Reviews , Four Meows / August 3, 2017

Throne of Glass, a treat for those who love fantasy mixed with strong heroines, introduces us to Celaena Sardothien, a woman with a sordid past who stomps into an intimidating castle with the intention of winning her freedom. Celeana is a likeable, capable protagonist who will charm even the most skeptical of readers. Okay, I took quite a while to actually start reading this book, despite already owning most of the series. I’m not sure why, but I think it’s because it was/is so hyped up. I’m annoyed by hype, so I tend to avoid whatever is being hyped up for as long as I can stand it. Eventually, I just have to see what all the fuss is about. So, let’s dig our claws in and take a deeper look, shall we? Our opening line starts us off with this: “After a year of slavery in the Salt Mines of Endovier, Celaena Sardothien was accustomed to being escorted everywhere in shackles and at sword-point.” I think this is a pretty strong opening because: It raises many questions, which is always good to make the reader want to keep reading.

Grimm Love by Kristen Collins–Book Review

Hello Kittens! Today, I am reviewing a book called Grimm Love by Kristen Collins. For a quick sum up, this is about a girl called Sky who is half human and half Grim Reaper. While simultaneously living a normal life and, you know, harvesting souls on the side, she meets a guy called Jack who falls for her and sends her world into a tailspin.

I do enjoy it, but it can easily be ruined, so it depends a lot on how the author handles it. That being said, I surprisingly really enjoyed this book. I don’t mean to say “surprisingly” as if I thought I would hate it. I didn’t. I just tend to have a little apprehension for this particular genre sometimes. However, this book was quite lovely. First, I must give it credit for putting a new and fresh spin on the paranormal romance genre. Our main girl is not a vampire, werewolf, or even a witch. She is a Grim Reaper. What?! Yes. This isn’t the first book I have…
