#BookReview#BookSeries : #ThroneOfGlass 👑👸🏼🤴🏼
4 days ago I began reading this series with only 6 hours of sleep per day. I can't quite remember the last time I read a series so voraciously. I think it was #HarryPotter or #LOTR or #InDeath or #InheritanceCycle or #JaneAusten .
What I am feeling after reading this tale can't be put into words, but I'll try.
It tell us a tale of a fallen kingdom a world in ruin. Of a princess, assassin, a queen, a human, a slave. Aelin. A girl who has everything taken from her, her family, her kingdom, her love, her freedom. She trains as a lethal assassin and when she is betrayed and sent to be a slave chained and bound. She is given a short reprieve by two boys who she loves in her own way and who love her in return. When that is taken from her when she is at her lowest another love, eternal love finds her and when forces move against her and the world itself, sacrificing everything her very last fibre. That love stays eternally "to whatever end" and brings her back. In this world that @therealsjmaas brought forth. People forgive, learn to fight even if that last ember of hope is dying out and yet they do not yield to darkness. A simple kindness of a cloak, of a minute, of coins, of a kind word has the power to shake the world of amassing armies, to form alliances and rebuild what once was razed.
I laughed, and cried tears of happiness and sorrow. I bawled and howled at injustice and loss. I danced in joy too. Thank you @therealsjmaas
I got a rare chance to revel in the Regency era yesterday, enjoying tea and a discussion of 'Emma' during the day, then seeing a charming production of it later at the Fresno Pacific Theater.
After about three weeks of travel away from home, it was a nice battery recharge. I'm also one step closer to convincing Mr. Fowler to adopt the wardrobe of Mr. Knightly for some future event. Or, anytime it strikes my fancy. 😸
What a privilege it was to play the role of Mrs Grant in Jane Austen’s classic Mansfield Park our on by Ruby Productions. It’s a beautiful story and it was an incredible experience to go back in time to the regency era. Mansfield Park transports you back in time to another world where we feel as though we are dreaming, but in fact we not so far from our own realities.
Books and blossom for this #floralfriday .....🌿 Wishing you a lovely end to the week! X

These two lovely book sets hail from the early 1960s. These simple books were published to introduce and make the classics available and affordable for everyone. The vintage, muted colours and the simplicity of the artwork really appeal to me. The smaller books were published by The World’s Library and the larger books are from Everyman’s Library.
Are you a fan of vintage editions?
