"Waiting On" Crown of Midnight

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating!

This week I am excited for...
An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt.
But her heart never wavers.

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? (From Goodreads)
Okay, I want to talk about this for a second, and direct you to my review of Throne of Glass.  Apparently I liked it, but I honestly don't remember why I liked it.  Either I've changed a lot over the past year, or I really liked it and forgot what it was about.  Assassins and Choal.  That is seriously all I remember.

This is why I am excited to read Crown of Midnight: what was it that I liked and do I still like it.  Crown of Midnight is out next week, on August 27th, 2013.  I've seen a lot of positive reviews, and a lot of people saying that this book outdid it's predecessor, so I'm thinking it is time for a reread of Throne of Glass!

And I am sorry, but I hate these new covers.  If I weren't so curious, I would never buy this.  That's just my personal opinion.


  1. YES and huzzah for a cover that is 1.4 billion times cooler than the first book!

  2. I'm reading Throne of Glass right now. I'm about halfway through and am liking it so far. I don't love the new covers, but I do think they are more interesting than the blond face cover of the first book. Great pick!

  3. If you liked assassins and Chaol, then you will LOVE Crown of Midnight because it could just as easily be called "Badass Killing Scenes and Chaol".


Thank you for your comment! I absolutely love reading them and responding!
