My love for Throne of Glass will never end, so of course one of my first bookish playlists was to commemorate our favorite queen, Aelin Ashryver Galathynius.
This playlist follows her from The Assassin’s Blade through Empire of Storms. It embodies her independent, girl-power vibes while still touching on the harder events of her life. (SAM CORTLAND DESERVED BETTER. *Sobs uncontrollably in the corner*)
Here’s a few of my favorite choices and why they remind me of Aelin!
Big Spender, Kiana Lede
Aelin buys her own fancy things and doesn’t have time for anyone. So you better get out of her way.
Notable Lyrics: “Big baller, boujee shot caller. No f*ckboys allowed in my aura”
Look What You Made Me Do, Taylor Swift
There’s a Taylor Swift song for every occasion and this one is definitely Aelin’s theme song. She gets her revenge on all those who did her wrong and everyone who crosses her path. And do I love her for it? Yes.
Notable Lyrics: “But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time
Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time”
This is the song I imagine playing in the background as Maeve shows her b*tch face on the beach to take Aelin with her and it KILLS ME EVERY TIME.
Notable Lyrics: “You lying so low in the weeds. Bet you gonna ambush me. You’d have me down, down, down to my knees. Wouldn’t you, Barracuda?”
So, without further ado, here is my moody, boss-lady Aelin playlist. Enjoy!
