Waiting on Wednesday: Crown of Midnight

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to read.

My pick is Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas!

Goodreads summary:

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?

My thoughts:

What an awesome cover!  It was just revealed yesterday, so I'm thrilled that it's in time for my WoW. :D What do you guys think of the cover?  I love it; I think it represents the stories very well and really gives off a fantasy-ish vibe.

Basically, I just can't wait for this book.  I need more of Chaol and Dorian!  And I'm excited about reading more of Celaena's sparkling wit and sarcasm, of course. ;) She's an amazing heroine.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    1. I know right?! I'm so excited for this to come out! Thanks for the follow as well. :)

  2. Well, to tell you the truth, I didn't like book 1 of this series, and I didn't understand what the fuss was all about with it either. I was thoroughly disappointed by it. People say I should've read the short stories beforehand, but I believe that's really not how it should go. A short story should be a companion, not holding all the info you'd need to understand the main novel, you know?
    Anyway, there are lots of readers out there who loved the series. I hope you enjoy the sequel ;)
    Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Aw, I know what you mean - I hate it when I read a book that everyone else loves but I just can't get into it. I agree about the short stories, too. I haven't read them either. *shrug* Thanks!
