CROWN OF MIDNIGHT BY SARAH J. MAAS

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2)

From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil. Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart. Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena’s world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie…and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

SEPTEMBER

wrap-up

This list is a lot shorter than it was in my head. I have terrible time management, and a lot of schoolwork, so my goal for each month is going to be to read four books. And I will try to post a review a week. But we’ll see. Hollow City was my favorite read this month, and Meant to Be was my least favorite. If you are interested in hearing my thoughts, I wrote reviews for the first three books on this list that are linked below. I hope September went well for everyone and that October will be great! The books I read are:

AUGUST

wrap-up

The first half of August is my laziest time of the year, and then school starts, so I didn’t read a ton this month but I don’t really care. It was a good month regardless. I’ll probably read less next month! The bold titles are links to the reviews that I’ve written for them. I hope that if you went back to school it’s going well, and if you go back soon that it will be good. And I hope that everyone had a good month!
