So very excited to be on the Queen of Shadows blog tour with the Maas Thirteen — it has been such a great and creative tour so far! It’s no secret I’m a big fan of the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas (if you don’t know about it…check out this post) and I was so, so pleased with Queen of Shadows!! Okay, pleased is being very, very tame. I haven’t been right since I’ve read it, to be honest.
I had two really fun, albeit VERY involved and time-consuming, ideas for my spot on this tour. I was so planning on devoting the time to doing one of them because, seriously, they were so fun (at least I thought so)….but then I went and adopted a dog on Labor Day so any and all time I had to invest in filming these ideas was GONE. But I shall save them for the next tour should the Maas Thirteen invite me back. Related, I tried to name the dog all of the following: Fleetfoot, Chaol, Dorian, Aedion and Rowan but Will said no. So if that I had worked out I could have just taken really cute pictures of my ToG named dog and posed him into scenes from the series. But alas, Will vetoed the names and we’ve found that the dog (Finnikin) won’t sit still long enough to take a photo of him soooo yeah.
If you frequent this blog you know I’ve been doing Retail Therapy posts (with varying degrees of consistency) since 2011. If you are stopping by from the blog tour, welcome to Retail Therapy in which I make you empty your wallets and feel zero percent bad about it.
It’s not enough that I spend money on books but I really like to spend money on bookish things and so I thought it would be really fun to highlight some of my favorite fan made products. I love how books inspire creativity in people. Especially with this series I’ve seen sooo many amazing displays of fan art — even songs inspired by this series and these characters!
*Clicking on photos will take you to the shop of the artist who made it*
*I do not own these photographs, they are the property of the artists I’ve linked*
Because really who doesn’t need more bookmarks!
* I may or may not have bought the last 2 of the *rattle the stars* bookmark here and will be giving one away at the bottom of this post. I’m not sure if she will make more or if they are sold out for good!*
Everything Gillian Makes
I’ve raved about Gillian’s fan art before but OMG everything Throne of Glass related is PERFECT. Like the most perfect. The best thing is you can put her prints on like anything — mugs, shirts, totes, wall art, SHOWER CURTAINS SHOULD YOU WANT TO. Like pretty much every print I can’t decide what I want it to BE on because they all pretty much look good on everything. Here’s a sampling.
I have to give a personal nod to this first one because I own one and it is AWESOME. The most comfy t-shirt I own plus the detail is awesome. Will even though it was pretty cool that the entire shirt is covered in words from the book. Comes in a variety of colors but I loved the way the black and white looked! (Side note: I want soooo many of their shirts)
