17 Sarah J. Maas Quotes To Tide You Over Until Her Next YA Novel Hits Shelves

If you're a young adult fantasy fan, Sarah J. Maas certainly needs no introduction. And you probably already have many Sarah J. Maas quotes from her fantasy series tacked up for inspiration on your desk. The Throne of Glass series author has been captivating the globe with her fantasy stories and kickbutt female protagonist Celaena Sardothien since the first book was released in 2012. Then after its three sequels (plus two more coming!) — Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadows, 2016's Empire of Storms, and 2017's untitled sixth and final book book — and three companion novellas, she hit our shelves again with another unique fantasy series based on Beauty and the Beast. A Court of Thorns and Roses series made fans clear that not only is Maas one of the hardest working authors in YA, she's one of the favorites.

But now, Maas has even bigger news. She's teaming up with Marie Lu, Matt de la Pena, and Leigh Bardugo to create DC Comics YA novels, each focused on a favorite superhero or super villain. Maas will write the book on Catwoman, and it's going to be epic. We might have to wait a couple years for Catwoman to be on shelves, but for the time being, these 17 awesome Sarah J. Maas quotes will have to tide you over before the next book comes.
