If Heir of Fire was my least favorite book, Queen of Shadows turned out to be my MOST favorite book from the Throne of Glass series.

Oh my goodness, this series; especially this book; was SO GOOD I literally have no words to describe what I am feeling right now, maybe happiness and tranquility?

I loved the ending of QoS, a lot. So much so that now I am too scared to read the next book from this series. I want to stay in this happy ending for as long as I can.

If you stopped reading this series after reading Heir of Fire, trust me, you’re missing out on a lot of fun. So start reading the now!

The character developments in this book turned out to be so satisfying. I loved how Aelin’s character kept getting better in every chapter.

I must confess though, at the beginning of this book I was kind of annoyed by Aelin. Kind of. Mostly because I still hadn’t gotten over the amazing relationship Chaol and Celeana had shared, it felt sad to see my favorite ship sink.

But I loved how the author concluded their relationship perfectly in the end.

Ok so, can we stop for a moment and discuss about how badass Manon actually turned out to be? She’s now amongst my favorite badass character. I really hope something brews up between Manon and Dorian and I also hope something brews up between Aedion and Lysandra as well!

5 out of 5 stars for the Queen of Shadows.

P.S. I still am kind of nervous to start Empire of Storms.

I did not expect to love Catwoman as much as I do right now. I had kept my love for the writing of Sarah J Maas from her previous books aside before picking this book up, expecting it to disappoint me, because one author just cannot write so many good books in a row. But I am so glad it couldn’t!

I am among those few people who just couldn’t and didn’t want to get into the fandoms of superhero comics like DC Icons and Marvel. Oh heck, I didn’t even know Bruce was the real name of BATMAN! That’s how much I didn’t know about super heroes and heroines. But that changed after I read Catwoman by Sarah J Maas. Even though I’m not an expert on Batman, I do know the basics, and that’s a big deal.

Now, about the story. The main lead, Selina Kyle; was such a badass! And so were her partners in crime Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. In fact, all the characters in this book were. And as I was newly introduced to ‘The Joker’ everyone kept talking about, I finally figured out why some people liked this cruel character so much. It’s because he’s witty.

This book didn’t exactly work out as their favorite for some, but for me it worked out positively and I LOVED IT. This book had all the thrill and action a suspenseful story like this should have, and it entertained me thoroughly. It had an entertaining storyline and the twists made the book hard to put down.

I’ll give this ‘puuuurrrrrrrfect’ book a 4.5 out of 5 stars. 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Woman in the Window was SO unpredictable that I think I probably might have gasped out loud a couple of times while reading this book.

You might be a super calm and resilient person in real life but I bet you to NOT to get shocked by mysteries that’ll unfold in this book. You couldn’t. I couldn’t, either! That’s among the main reasons why I liked this book so much.

Now comes that parts I didn’t like about this book so much. There were a lot of chapters in this book that felt too stretched out and at one point I thought it’ll probably be best if I DNF-ed it. But that’s something I can’t usually do so I carried on. Eventually as the mystery kept unfolding the story kept getting more and more intriguing.

The main lead of this book, Dr. Anna Fox is a children’s psychotherapist who got triggered by Agoraphobia (a type of anxiety disorder) after an unfortunate incident. So she feels safe living indoors with all the doors and windows closed with her cat. She also tends to secretly spy on most of her neighbors through her window…because she likes it. You can know from this short description on how messed up this mystery novel will get as you keep reading it.

If you like reading books that are SO mysterious that it keeps boggling your mind, then this book is definitely for you.

A 3 out of 5 stars for this weird novel. 🌟 🌟 🌟

Favorite quote: “If there's one thing I've learned in all my time working with children, if I could whittle those years down to a single revelation, it's this: They are extraordinarily resilient. They can withstand neglect; they can survive abuse; they can endure, even thrive, where adults would collapse like umbrellas.”

EXTRAS: ok so, I found out about the controversial information about the author AJ Finn through my friends and I must point this out. I gave this book a good rating only because it had genuinely entertained me. I am in no way supporting the author for what he said or did in anyway because he was clearly wrong for what he did. I am simply reviewing a book. So no judgments!
