I got on the Women Warriors book review train a little late, but in lieu of Emily’s plugging of the Defy series, by Sarah B. Larson, I thought I’d present an alternative–the Throne of Glass series, by Sarah J. Maas. Now, the two series have a lot of similarities, but we both have our favourites. Can we persuade each other that the other series is better? Let’s be honest, probably not–but we proudly present our attempt!

Here is a story.
Once upon a time, there were two girls goofing off during AP History. I mean, they weren’t supposed to be goofing off, but it was ridiculously easy when thirty kids were literally crammed into the classroom–oh, and on top of that, this was the first year of the Laptops. They gave all of us old Dell computers and said we HAD to use them in class, can you believe it? (I have no idea if this is still a thing, they might have actually gotten wise by now).
So, maybe you don’t know about YALLfest. It’s nothing to be ashamed about–I didn’t either, up until about this time two years ago. However, if you don’t know, this is the perfect time to look it up and then plan to go down to Charleston November 13-14.
If you haven’t guessed, that’s where Emily, myself and perhaps a few others plan to be that weekend. Why? Oh, only to meet our favourite authors, get our favourite books signed, and report back to you, dear readers, about everything you missed by not going to YALLfest. But, to convince you to go, we’re going to spend most of the rest of the time reminding you of all the reasons why we, personally, are looking forward to it.
To wrap up Bad Books Week, here is a book that is not bad at all and does amazingly at not only avoiding love triangles and insta-love, but is a highly romantic and captivating tale.
