A thousand stars for Crown of Midnight! Hands down.

No other words but perfection. 

Crown of Midnight is the second book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I admit I’m sorta late in the game just reading it now, but for some reason I just delayed reading it. I’m afraid everything in this review is spoilery and so if you haven’t read this book, then WHY HAVEN’T YOU DONE SO ALREADY?! Stop what you’re doing right now and JUST GO GRAB A COPY AND READ!!! (Okay. *Breathes deeply and relaxes*)

I haven’t been expecting a lot from Crown of Midnight to be quite honest, because a lot of people has actually tabbed it as their least favorite in the series. But after reading it, I mean, SERIOUSLY PEOPLE?! I DON’T GET WHY! I loved every second I spent reading this book! ❤

It begins right where Throne of Glass left off – Celaena doing her job as the King’s Champion, assassinating all his enemies and basically anyone who goes against him. But is she doing it, really? AHHHHH. The first few pages of this book is so action packed and mind blowing already, my brain was just so effed up by how Celeana was doing her assassin stuff! So so cool and so so badass!

Before I gush over Chaol for the rest of this so-called “review”, allow to me give some appreciation to how Celaena has grown so much as a character. I admit she wasn’t the most perfect in Throne of Glass with all the whining and petty stuff that went on in there (don’t get me wrong, I loved Throne of Glass – together with its imperfections – so much!!). But she’s just grown so much in Crown of Midnight, and though still imperfect, she’s shown sides of her that would make all readers understand her more. Celaena isn’t afraid to show how she truly feels and that’s what I like most about her. Even if she’s the greatest assassin in the whole of Adarlan, she shows it when she’s scared, and angry, and hopeless. It’s so perfect how imperfect she is!

 I especially loved Dorian in this sequel too, although so many times I felt my heart breaking for him. 😦 And that moment that she let Celaena go? I was torn into pieces and I don’t think I could ever move on from this scene:

And finally, Chaol Westfall, Captain of the Royal Guard. ❤ My heart!!! I never thought I could like  LOVE a character this much! I mean, yes I read a lot of romantic stories with all these Young Adult and New Adult Contemporaries on my shelves, but a character from a fantasy series that I’d totally die for? I didn’t think so! Until Chaol Westfall! I just don’t have enough words for him! Being the #Chaolaena shipper that I am since book one, this book was for me. My heart was such in a good good place the whole time Chaol and Celaena were together, and it was breaking so much I could physically feel the pain when everything just went down between them. 😦 Ahhh. Just thinking about all the sacrifice that Chaol had to endure *and continue in enduring probably in the rest of the series* just pains me. At this point, I just can’t wait to reach Tower of Dawn because I just love love love Chaol so much.

This dance!! This dance!! I was smiling and crying at the same time! I can’t even  form words right now.

And that scene when Chaol cried? My poor heart! I just want to hug him and comfort him and tell him that everything is going to be okay! 😦


Anyway, I could go on and on forever but I wouldn’t wanna bore you with all my blabbering! One thing I’d want you to take away from this review, though, is that you have to (HAVE TO!! NEED TO!!) read this series!

      1. Aw you’re welcome! A week of pure reading would be amazing especially when it’s for the Throne of Glass series. I still have Tower of Dawn on my shelf. Anxious about starting that one!

    1. I re-read ToG before getting into CoM too! I advise you do that because everything is much better to understand with a fresh memory of Celaena and Dorian and Chaol! ❤
