An Editorial on S.J. Maas
Hello Readers and Followers. While my fellow reviewer has been uploading reviews for you all I've been over on our tumblr feed fielding a plethora of questions and "asks". It has come to my attention that there are a lot, and I mean A LOT of differing viewpoints on Sarah J. Maas's works. I would not normally use this review blog to answer these as I feel they take away from the works themselves and we do attempt to avoid spoilers whenever possible on here. However; the enormous amount of both Pro-Maas and Anti-Maas asks that I've received have prompted me to write this editorial. Now I do not speak for everyone nor would I presume to when I say that literature above all else should make you think. I will not be taking a stand on either side of this debate because in all fairness both sides have some good arguments that deserve to be heard. Rather this editorial is my attempt to show why I will continue to read S.J. Maas's work and review it on this blog. As you all know A Court of Wings and Ruin is due out on May 2nd and myself and my fellow reviewer are excited to read and review that book for you here. So whether your Pro-Maas or Anti-Maas I think we can all agree that her works are well written, well thought out and her characters are richly and graphically detailed. Regardless of how you feel about the actual stories themselves I hope this editorial will make all of you take a step back and attempt to view these pro and con arguments in a more objective light.
