“Celaena eyed the pianoforte. She used to play- oh, she’d loved to play, loved music, the way music could break and heal and make everything seem possible and heroic”

Throne of Glass, pg. 143

Why I liked Throne of Glass

Celaena is the 18 year old that I wished to be. Savvy, a voracious reader, musician and expert in her field she uses her intelligence and empathy to help her solve the problems that she faces. Honestly, I found her to be the most interesting young female character that I’ver read in a while as she proved to be a formidable opponent against all that this book threw at her. As far as young adult lit goes, I would recommend Throne of Glass for the intrigue and suspense as well as a the spirited girl that pulls this book together.

Book Club Question

Is the magic that seems to be just below the surface in this book a coincidence or is Celaena special?
