The Throne of Glass Book Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

I got tagged for this by Brianna @ Brianna’s Books And Randomness in March and the fact that I’m only doing this now is testament to my „Snaildom“ and yes, this might be a word I made up but it definitely is a thing. *lol* 😛 Anyway, thank you Brianna for thinking of me when you did this tag! I’m a huge fan of the „Throne of Glass“ series and it made me really happy to get tagged for this. XD

So before I do this tag there’s only one thing I need to get off my chest first: WHY IS THERE NO DORIAN HAVILLIARD PROMPT!!!??? Like seriously?! How could you forget about my baby!? T_T Not fair! I still love „Throne of Glass“ though so I’ll do the tag even though not having a Dorian prompt is kinda killing me. A slow and painful death. *lol*

Anyway, let’s do this and wallow in my justified pain later. 😛

~LYSANDRA~

A book with a cover change you loved

I think that would be Jay Kristoff’s „Nevernight“. When I first got curious about the book I always saw the cover with Mia on it but I rarely like book covers with people on them. (Of course there are plenty of series that do this and I love them still. *lol*) Well, and then I discovered the other cover and was blown away! ❤

I don’t know about you but in my opinion the second cover is way more awesome than the first. XD Especially because there are so many details in the drawing! It’s amazing!

 

~ABRAXOS~

A book that’s better on the inside than it looks on the outside

21956219

 

Seriously, the cover of „Assassin’s Apprentice“ couldn’t have been any more boring. It has that typical 90ies epic fantasy vibe going on and when I first picked it up in my library I was like: Mhmm let’s see if this is going to be good. AND boy, was it awesome!!! By now there are about three other covers but none of them does Fitz’s story justice so I think I’ll never be satisfied with the covers for this book. *lol*

~ERILEA~

A series with great word building

77683

Jeez! I could go with about a million fantasy series here but I’ll go back to the roots and say „Lord of the Rings“. XD Because let’s face it, this was one of the first epic fantasy series I read. I was 13 when I first picked it up and so immersed in the story that I didn’t only read all three books in about a week but also learned Elvish. (yes, I was THAT obsessed!) *lol* I guess that says quite a lot about the great word building of J.R.R. Tolkien. Eleni sílar antalyannar! 😛

~RIFTHOLD~

A book that combines genres

36381037

Well, if the combination of a fairy tale and science fiction isn’t the perfect pick for this, then I don’t know. 😉 I loved how Marissa Meyer combined those two genres in „Cinder“ and I’m really looking forward to read the rest of the series. 😀

~DAMARIS ~

A book based on/inspired by a myth/legend

13516154

I will never get tired of telling everyone how wonderful this book is! „The Song of Achilles“ is one of the best books ever! ❤ Madeline Miller nails fictional myths and legends like no other author I ever encountered and I don’t even hesitate before I pick up one of her books.

~KALTAIN ROMPIER~

A book with an unexpected twist

15839976

 

I don’t know how often my head was spinning while I read the „Red Rising“ series but Pierce Brown definitely threw me for a loop! *lol* There were soo many twists and turns throughout the entire series that I was reduced to a nail biting mess by the end of it. Haha! Such a great series! ❤

~ASSASSIN’S KEEP~

A book with an unreliable narrator

16143347

I guess Cady from „We Were Liars“ is the only character that comes to mind. I probably should read more books with unreliable narrators. XD

~ASTERIN BLACKBEAK~

A book that’s got squad goals

26642116. sy475

 

I’m sure that if you’ve read „Six of Crows“ this is the first book that will come to your mind. And if you haven’t read it already you certainly should because that squad is truly #SquadGoals!!! I loved Kaz, Inej, Jesper, Wylan, Nina and Matthias. ❤ All of them were such amazing characters and the way they work together and appreciate each other (and their skills) is nothing but awesome.

~TERRASEN~

A book that feels like home

    17675462. sy475  29637128. sy475

 

I could go with „Harry Potter“ here because it’s basically my childhood but I discovered so many great series over the years and if I have to choose I’ll go with „The Raven Cycle“ and „An Exaltation of Larks“.  HP feels like my childhood and therefore is dear to my heart and feels like home, but those other two …. they are my everything! ❤ Just to think about them makes me feel all cozy, homey and loved.

~AELIN ASHRYVER GALATHYNIUS~

A book with the power to destroy you

39340341. sy475

I’ll go with the only book I never managed to write a review about: „Kingdom of Ash“. This book was so good and destroyed me in the best way possible. It took me about 5 months to even think about writing a review and there are so many characters, quotes and things that happen in here that I still didn’t finish my review. I feel like Patrick Rothfuss writing „The Doors of Stone“. *LOL* So if I ever write and post this review I’ll drink a good whiskey and lean back in my chair. Haha! 😛

~MANON BLACKBEAK~ 

A book that intimidated you

35068705

 

„The Poppy War“ intimidated me big time! For one thing it’s HUGE! The sheer amount of pages was already intimidating enough and then add all the trigger warnings I read about. This was definitely no easy read and quite a tough journey. (and this is probably the understatement of the century. XD) But it’s a really, really good book and I can totally recommend it. (Even if it’s super tough to read.)

~ROWAN WHITETHORN~

A book that makes you swoon

33299920. sx318

 

I haven’t read this yet but the mere idea of diving into Javier Landes’s story is already enough to make me swoon! I love this man so much! And yes I say man and not character because for me he’s a living and breathing person! ❤ I can’t wait to read this and I hope I’ll finish a few of my books soon so I can finally tackle this gem!!!

~CHAOL WESTFALL~ 

A book that challenged you to see things differently

43819388. sy475

 

I’m from Austria and my country is so very different from America. So to read this definitely challenged me to see things differently. I think „The Hate U Give“ gave me a good glimpse at America and the racism that’s still going strong. It was good to read this from Starr’s perspective and it helped me to understand the problems she had to deal with. It’s a really important and great book and I think everyone should read it!

~FLEETFOOT~

A book you received as a gift

229318. sy475

 

I really just got this as a very belated birthday present from one of my besties! (COVID sucks… XD) I wanted to borrow this from the library about a thousand times but I never got to it so I’m very glad I have it in my own collection now. I won’t have to worry about library deadlines when I start to read it and for me this is a big plus! *lol*

~ EYE OF ELENA~

A book you found right when you needed it

20887238. sy475

 

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I started to read this but it turned out to be exactly the kind of book I needed at that time. „Traitor’s Blade“ was easy to read, the characters were likable and it was something different than I’m used to. It was a really light and enjoyable book and it helped me to escape the world for a little while. XD

Rankenzeile

I’m still kinda miffed about the fact that there is no Dorian Havilliard prompt but I guess I’ll have to live with it. Why, oh why, does everyone always forget about my precious boy? *sniff* Still, this tag was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoyed my answers! XD

This said let’s tag a few of you to join the fun. 😛

I tag:

Miri @ Rosy Musings

Sabrina @ Notes From A Paper Plane Nomad

Elli @ AceReader

Kaya @ A Fictional Bookworm

Lia @ Chain of Novels

and anyone else who wants to do this tag!

*hugs’n’kisses*

20 Gedanken zu „The Throne of Glass Book Tag“

    1. You’re welcome, Sabrina! It really was a lot of fun, especially if you’ve read and enjoyed the entire series. 😀 Haha! So you’re #TeamChaol! I should have known! *lol* Did you read „Twilight“ and if yes, just out of curiosity which team were you on? Team Edward or Team Jacob? XD

  1. Yesss, the nevernight cover with the bird is definitely better (I think that’s the Australian cover, though I’m not sure). I own it in that edition. But I had to get book 2 in the ugly, girl-on-the-cover edition and I was sad. But even though it is uglier, those paperbacks are way easier to read so I kind of recommend them over the others.

  2. THANK YOU FOR THE TAG <333 also I laughed a bit at how a TOG book showed up in a TOG tag (please don't judge my odd sense of humor…) I really liked how Meyer combined sci-fi and fairytales too!! The most common mixes with retellings I see are fantasy or contemporary!!
