Sheridan at I Turn the Pages is the creator of the super cool idea for Mood Board Mondays! Where you make a mood board for a book you’re currently reading/finished If you want more details, check out her post here!!!
For today’s Mood Board, I decided to create a picture for my favorite fantasy series, Throne of Glass!!!
Who was your favorite character in the book?
Dorain! And I think he might be my favorite still 🙂 I haven’t read QOS yet, but he is such a great character. He is funny, witty, smart… I also really like Celaena and Chaol 😛 not going to lie.
Did you pick any specific characters or scenes to be represented in your Moodboard?
I tried to find pictures for the three main characters Dorian, Chaol and Celaena… but I don’t pay attention to character descriptions. But that dark haired guy is Dorian, I saw the picture and I was LIKE OH MY GOSH THIS IS DORIAN so yes… the blonde guy is Chaol and the girl is obviously Celaena… 🙂
Did your Mood Board take a specific color scheme? If you actively chose one, why did you chose that specific color?
I chose dark colors because, if you have read TOG, you know that it is a pretty dark fantasy. Everything has high stakes and there’s lots of drama, like EVIL power drama, evil king drama, romance drama. SO. MUCH. DRAMA. It’s like a YA game of thrones. (NOTE: TOG backwards is GOT (Game of Thrones))
Was there a picture that you just couldn’t find to incorporate into your mood board? If you can answer it with little to no spoilers, tell us how it related to the book!
Well, I did try and find a black ring/stone but I couldn’t find one. 😛 It was pretty important in the first two ish books, again I haven’t read Queen of Shadows.
If you read the book, what was your rating for it? Link us to your review if you have one!
Well… In order:
Crown of Midnight 5 stars (MY FAVORITE SO FAR)
All of the titles link to my reviews 🙂
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her … but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.
Then one of the other contestants turns up dead … quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.
