*"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
So for my very first post, this is the book I'm absolutely dying to get my hands on:
TITLE: THRONE OF GLASS
AUTHOR: Sarah J. Maas
EXPECTED PUBLICATION DATE: August 7, 2012
PUBLISHER: Bloomsbury Children's Books
"After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
Her opponents are men—thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the kings council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.
Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.
Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined." - Source: Goodreads
Game of Thrones, anyone?! I haven't read that either but the TV series is quite astonishing. I'm sure the book would definitely be an even greater experience. So anyway, yes. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. It sounds absolutely awesome!
So how about you? Which book are you eagerly waiting to read?
