Waiting On Wednesday: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

'Waiting on Wednesday' is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we pick the book we just can't wait to get our hands on next. 

See our pick after the jump:

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

We both LOVED Throne of Glass, and the novellas that came before it so having to wait this long for the next instalment is bordering on torture; like some kind of torture very specific to book addicts - our very own Room 101. 

Here's the Goodreads' synopsis (spoiler heavy if you haven't read Throne of Glass) (why haven't you read it though - seriously, why?):

An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt.

But her heart never wavers. 

After a year of hard labour 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? 

Just reading the synopsis is making us want to re-read Throne of Glass in preparation!
Crown of Midnight is released in the UK on 15th August, which is why Feli is very upset because she'll be in the midst of moving to China and will therefore have limited access to le internet & English books in general :(

What are you most looking forward to this week?


  1. Yes, way excited for this one. I loved the first book. Hopefully Feli will be able to grab a copy before moving!

    1. We hope so too! Otherwise I'm going to get a lot of jealous emails from across the ocean... :P Thanks for dropping by and commenting!
