BLOG UPDATE: March 2018

Hello Bookworms! Its been awhile since I’ve done one of these, but since I am anticipating being quite swamped as I finish up my final term of Teacher’s College, I felt that I should share some important blog news with everyone!

March, April, and May are without a doubt going to be a crazy busy month for me – I will be entering my final practicum as a pre-service teacher! Crazy, right? But practicum means a busy schedule of teaching, volunteering, and lesson planning, and in my previous experience, this really does cut into my reading time. And while I may be busy with finishing up my final term of post-secondary, I know I’ll find a way to sneak in some reading – and blogging – time!

Just not as much time as I have been, which (unfortunately) means that I am going to be changing up my blogging schedule a little bit, starting this upcoming Sunday (March 18, 2018). I will still be publishing a full review every Thursday, but from now on on Mondays I will be re-instating Mini Mondays!

You read that right – I am bringing back an old feature – MINI MONDAYS! I stopped doing this feature mid-2017 because I just wasn’t enjoying writing “Mini” Reviews anymore, and I had more time than I had had in awhile to write, so I figured I would go all full reviews. Unfortunately, for the next couple months, I am anticipating being quite swamped as I finish up my final term of Teacher’s College, and thus, in order to keep bringing you all regularly scheduled reviews, I have decided to re-instate Mini Mondays! These reviews will be 600 words or less, and will focus primary on what I enjoyed, and what I did not.

Beyond that, I will still be sharing monthly Reading/To Be Read Lists on the first (or as close as possible to the first), in addition to series reviews when applicable. I will also still be posting daily on my Bookstagram and on Twitter, so please feel free to follow me there to stay up to date on what I am reading and blogging about!

Finally, if there are any other features or blog posts themes you would like to see on my blog in the future, please let me know in the comments, and I will take your suggestions into consideration for my Summer Blogging Schedule!

Keep Reading, Bookworms!

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas

Released in Canada on March 3, 2015, The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas features all four of the previously published e-novellas – The Assassin and the Pirate Lord, The Assassin and the Desert, The Assassins and the Underworld, and The Assassin and the Empire – along with a story now available for the first time, The Assassin and the Healer. I will be reviewing each of the five novellas individually, then reviewing the novella collection as a whole.

Celaena Sardothien is Adarlan’s most feared assassin. As part of the Assassin’s Guild, she’s sworn to her master, Arobynn Hamel, yet Celaena listens to no one and trusts only her fellow killer for hire, Sam. Celaena’s missions take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, where she fights to liberate slaves and avenge tyranny. But by acting on her own terms, will Celaena truly free herself from her master, or will she suffer an unimaginable punishment for such treachery?

Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas

This is a full review of Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas. This means that this review will contain some spoilers for the book! If you would like to read a spoiler free review for Empire of Storms, click here

I’ve been following the Throne of Glass series since (almost) the beginning; I picked up Throne of Glass as soon as it was out in soft cover, and in no time,  I was hooked. I, like many other readers, have been eagerly awaiting the release of Empire of Storms for well on a year now, and the wait was certainly worth it! Maas has produced another beautiful written, intricate piece that will leave readers wanting more and utterly shattered.

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don’t. With her heart sworn to the warrior-prince by her side, and her fealty pledged to the people she is determined to save, Aelin will delve into the depths of her power to protect those she loves. But as monsters emerge from the horrors of the past, and dark forces become poised to claim her world, the only chance for salvation will lie in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.
