“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we’re
dying for panting over eagerly awaiting the chance to read.
My pick for this week is Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas!
After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king’s contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes.
Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king’s bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she’s given a task that could jeopardize everything she’s come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon — forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice.
Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?
I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover but that’s exactly what I did when I saw this one. I knew I had to have it. Thankfully, reviews for this one seem to be quite favorable – it currently holds a 4.68-star rating on Goodreads!
Note: I wrote and scheduled this post before the events of last week, in which I RECEIVED AN ARC OF THIS BOOK! I’m very excited – I won’t have to wait quite as long to read it after all. :D
What are you
patiently waiting on?
