Will There Be A Throne of Glass Movie?

Will there be a Throne of Glass movie? Everyone is scratching their heads wondering! Some are praying for movie rights to be sold and others are dreading the day that they do.

Well… hate to break it to you (or not, depends on what you want) but no, it hasn't been officially picked up for a movie yet. Though, I'm left with the impression that Sarah J. Maas is aiming to get movie rights signed.


It's evidently there on the contact page of her blog.


She hired a Film Agent.
That sort of seals the deal. 

At January 21, 2011, Sarah J. Maas announced on her livejournal blog that she asked Jon Cassir - a film agent of CAA - to represent the film option rights for Throne of Glass.

I'm really happy for her and for the series, I think this is a great opportunity for Throne of Glass fans to see the characters and story be brought to life on the big screen. My (and probably everyone else's) worry mostly centers on the casting. Castings are tricky because we have to not only look for an actor/actress who looks like the character but also someone who has the ability to embody them accurately.

So I guess right now we'll just have to wait and see if anyone picks up the series. But so far, it seems like Sarah J. Maas is on-board with the idea.

Here's a synopsis from Goodreads:

For Feyre, the downfall of her merchant-class family into poverty wasn’t easy, but after five years, she’s starting to get the hang of things. Hunt, and her family lives; fail to catch anything, and they starve. It doesn’t help that her two older sisters are lazy and ungrateful, or that her father hasn’t bothered to recover from his misfortune, but Feyre is managing.

All that changes when a ferocious beast barges into their cottage, demanding that Feyre come live with him as payment for plucking an ordinary forest rose. Dragged off into the night, the beast brings her to a beautiful manor located in Faerie, the mysterious and deadly lands bordering the mortal world. There, he sheds his animal skin, and reveals himself to be Tamlin, a young, handsome Faerie Lord.

But the estate is overshadowed by a curse: each of its inhabitants wears a mask permanently attached to their face, and Tamlin is no exception. Despite her initial desire to loathe Tamlin and his world, Feyre soon finds herself attracted to the Faerie Lord by more than her curiosity.

Just when Feyre accepts the depth of her feelings for Tamlin, they’re torn apart by forces so dark that there’s little hope of standing against them. But Feyre has endured hardship before, and she refuses to accept that her happiness could be forever stolen from her. Resolving to save her beloved and discover a way to break his curse, Feyre sets out into Faerie, where unknown challenges and dangers await, and where her love and strength will be tested in ways she never imagined.

A retelling of ”Beauty and the Beast,” “Tam-Lin,” and ”East of the Sun, West of the Moon,” A Court of Thorns and Roses tells the story of a young woman growing into herself, learning to love, and understanding the true nature of sacrifice.

I'm so excited! [Happy screaming]
What about you? What do you think of it so far?

Survival Guide to Assassin's Blade

I don't know about you but Assassin's Blade brought me to tears. Sure it was only five novellas, five novellas, but hell, that ending was NO EASY READ. So here's a survival guide to all of you who haven't read it yet. (by the way, you should read it, right away.)

Oh but before the Survival Guide.

You're probably wondering why you should read the Assassin's Blade if it's "just a bunch of novellas," well it's not, okay, it's not just a bunch of novellas, it's the bunch of novellas. If you think it doesn't do you any good when reading Throne of Glass, think again, it does you plenty good. It paints you a better picture of who Celaena was before spending time in Endovier, and better yet, it shows you who Sam sexy freakin ass Cortland is.

If you're worried about which to read first, Throne of Glass or Assassin's Blade, we wrote an article about the right way of reading them here.

Carrying on to the Survival Guide…

1. Towels: tissue doesn't cut it.

2. Let people know: before hand, you should inform your parents, family, boyfriends, friends etc. that you will be undergoing a traumatic event and that they shouldn't worry because it won't last longer than forever.

3. Water-proof mascara: to fight those unwanted mascara tear stains!

4. Comfort object: a pillow or stuffed toy (or person) you can hug during those "oh my god that didn't happen, no, no, no" times.

5. Water: gotta stay hydrated!

6. Charger: can't have that device dying on the good (or sad) parts!

7. Cheerful music: something's gotta cheer you up!

8. Don't read in public: for obvious reasons

9. Comfort food: LISTEN UP, I don't care if you're on a diet. Screw the diet! You'll need this, you will need it! Trust me, you'll finish that bag of chips and can of soda like your life depended on it.

10. Do you ever get over it? Not really, no.

[slowly wipes away tear] there you have it, I hope you have a much, much easier time reading The Assassin's Blade than I did.
