      bone was actually one of the first ones I started noticing, but yes, it is very interesting!

    It’s actually kinda interesting thinking about these words and how they connect to fantasy/one another. Like there’s queen and then there’s daughter. Daughter of the queen would be the princess and in a lot of fantasy books, the princess is the protagonist. Plus the entire court thing has to do with hierarchy (like how throne is used often as well) which is a staple to fantasy and a lot of the time a fantasy book centers around characters trying to get the most power. Ash is the result of fire and then idk about glass haha – I’m overthinking this but ANYWAY – good word choices 🙂

    Would you recommend The Sin Eater’s Daughter?

    I loved Isle of Blood and Stone so, so much! What did you think of it? I have Rachel Caine’s Great Library series and omg I’m looking forward to reading it 🙂

      I haven’t actually read either of those books yet! I think the Great Library series sounds good as well though 🙂
