    Throne of Glass and Seraphina were both super good, in my opinion at least. Figment features books and it really does tend to make me pick them up if i see them at the library 🙂 A reading list in ink is actually a good idea… my list is this mammoth thing on the library website and it’s mostly just things i think i’d want to read later, so the list GROOOOOWS. Now that graduation is over maybe i can read more. And write more… and other more stuff.

      I loved Throne of Glass! I also thought it was awesome that Sarah Maas got her start on, and ended up publishing the story she posted there. Pretty inspiring for aspiring Figgie novelists. 🙂 And yes, I used to just go by the books I had in my Amazon wish list, but having an actual list on my blog is way more fun–plus I get recommendations from awesome people like yourself!
