If this post is published, it means that I have conquered the beast that is Sarah J. Maas’s Kingdom of Ash. RIP my bookish soul.
The final book in the Throne of Glass series, Kingdom of Ash’s 980 page story took over my reading life for five days. Yes, I’m still laughing at the fact that I thought I could hold off reading my most anticipated release of 2018 until Thanksgiving break. Since I myself was avoiding KoA spoilers for as long as possible, here are some of my non-spoiler thoughts:
- Once again, if I can’t have Chaol Westfall, I’m happy that Irene Towers can
- Aelin’s torture scenes were every emotional hard to read. Who else cannot stand Maeve??
- The punch Manon took during THAT scene felt like I was being punched too. SJM went THERE
- I didn’t cry, but I almost did when someone’s death is being honored near the end and during a certain goodbye
- I still cannot get over the Charlie Bowater-illustrated jacket for the Barnes and Noble exclusive edition

Kingdom of Ash is coming TOMORROW, and I am not prepared. The final book in Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series, KoA is surely going to break my bookish soul. In anticipation of KoA, I’m going to be kickstarting a new series on Fangirl Fury, ToG style. Today I’ll be sharing book recommendations based off ToG characters. I would love to continue sharing recommendations based on characters in my favorite books and TV shows.
I’ve chosen 8 ToG characters to share recs for because we’d be here for a longggggg time if I even did recs based off all the main characters, let alone every character in the series. Long live this 992 page finale.

To your disbelief and mine, I’m back with another TBR! While I think I’ll always be a mood reader, there are a few books that I know I want to get to before the end of 2018- and there’s no way my homework is stopping me from doing so. With Halloween approaching, I’m craving some must-read fantasy (dark or light vibes welcome) and I wouldn’t be Fangirl Fury with at least 1 contemporary read.
My biggest debate that I’ve had while creating my October TBR is thinking about when I’m going to read Sarah J. Maas’s Kingdom of Ash, which comes out on October 23rd. Not only is KoA the final book in the Throne of Glass series, but it’s the longest SJM book at 992 PAGES. And yes, I’m already trying to figure out how I’m going to fit it on my bookshelf. I would of course love to read KoA as seen as it comes out, and while I do set aside time to read at school, I want to give it my undivided attention during my Thanksgiving or winter break…. Except I need to know what happens and I REFUSE to be spoiled. Any advice is much appreciated.
