I am so honored to be a stop on the Empire of Storms blog tour hosted by the #MaasThirteen!
To kick things off, I’m just going to ramble a bit. Can we talk about how amazing this series is? There are tons of good series, yes? YES. But there aren’t many that I would consider to be EPIC. Every book in the Throne of Glass series is just as good if not better than the last, even when that seems impossible. The characters are insanely well developed and the world is ridiculously impressive (for example, let’s give a shout out to Manon Blackbeak and company!). Plus, Sarah is not afraid to make our hearts ache in the best and worst ways. I am blown away every time.
This series has embedded itself within in my heart! I have loved Aelin from the first chapter of the first book, but what really won me over is the fact that she is so fierce, yet has that layer of vulnerability that makes her so easy to connect with. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve told myself to channel my inner Aelin!
Then there are the guys, but I’m not even going to get myself started on that topic because well… come on! Most books are lucky to have one guy to swoon over, but this series? It’s like going to my favorite donut shop and being forced to leave with only one! But honestly, if I haaad to choose, Rowan is my donut of choice. Hands down. However, this doesn’t mean the other donuts aren’t pretty darn delicious! Like I said, TOG guys are the equivelant of donuts. So really, you can’t go wrong with any of them.
I think what I love most is the writing. It’s so beautiful and just DEEEP and passionate. Sometimes I can’t help but put my hand on my chest because I legit think my heart might explode.
Seriously. And that’s just one of about 75 dog ears. Basically, EPIC.
Anyway, to show my love for this series and the release of Empire of Storms, I got crafty and made a couple of flower vases! Check them out…
If you have not read these books, shame on you. Not really… actually, you are a lucky little duck because you are officially invited to fall into one of the most amazing adventures to ever grace the pages. GET READING! Then tell me all about your exploding heart!
Up for grabs: One signed copy of Empire of Storms, one Throne of Glass tote bag, one set of lip balms (Dorian, Chaol, Rowan) & one Celaena soap (c/o Behind the Pages) & Throne of Glass buttons (c/o ThroneofGlassPH)

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.
As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.
Aelin's journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?
