2 after learning about the delay I I just really wanted 2019 to be worth it, yknow 3 later This said, I d wait twenty years for Eugenides So it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay it s okay I ll be therethere s thief in the title so of course I m emotional agrgdhfj And so it begins BUT ALSO BUT ALSO EDIT 1 24 19Okay, so after reading THIS part of the blurb Perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Patrick Rothfuss, and Sarah J Maas WHAT EW WTF No Justno.Whoever wrote that needs their head checked And then rechecked And then maybe just take the whole thing off all together MWT blows all four of those authors out of the water, and I will plant myself and die on that hill Seriously Let s think about this her books are about 300 pg long She has six of them Rothfuss and Maas write 700 pg books, in Maas case MANY of them, and can barely TOUCH MWT s skill will world building Comparatively, Lu and Bardugo are just mediocre I mean, I d rate them both HIIIIIGH above Maas, but next to MWT.Erm No Sorry not sorry But its true Aside but kinda not an aside MWT ALSO manages to write stellar, popular, ENGAGING books without pandering to any kind of modern political addendum, adding a bunch of unnecessary love story subplots, forcing her clearly just friends male characters to be gay just to satisfy some sort of stupid inclusion blah blah blah , and without ANY sex Sex sells and Maas knows it, but when something is TRULY good, like TQT booksthey don t need it Note like, if y all really love Maas books or Bardugo s books or whatever, I m in no way saying you can t like them and like MWT s books tooI m just saying a comparison between MWT s books and their books islaughable They aren t written for similar audiences AT ALL You can read MWT s books at any age and still get a lot out of them Bardugo s books are heavily marketed towards 13 17 year olds though yes they are clearly enjoyed by many women in their 20s as well and Maas books should ONLY be read 18 NOTE I don t MIND having gay characters in books, but 9 10 that I ve come across in YA fiction, they feel like they ve been slapped in there and forced into a ship together just because the author s worried about inclusion I haven t come across a single gay character in a YA fantasy book who ISN T automatically slapped into a hasty ship and who has some kind of development beyond just their sexuality That s just lazy writing It s annoying It s like having a tough girl character just to have a tough girl character STOP DOING IT. concept everyone in this book has A GOOD DAY I cannot wait to finish this series, but either way, may I just say the
