Photobucket




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

My pick this week is:




Title: Throne of Glass
Series:  Throne of Glass, Book 1
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Release date: August 2nd, 2012 in the UK and August 8th in the US

Summary:
Celaena Sardothien is a daredevil assassin with unrivalled fighting skills. After a year’s hard labour in the salt mines of the kingdom of Adarlan, Celaena is offered her freedom on one condition—she must fight as handsome Prince Dorian’s champion in a contest sponsored by the king, facing the deadliest thieves and assassins in the land in a series of set-piece battles in the country’s stunning glass palace. But there is more at stake than even her life—for Celaena is destined for a remarkable future...



Why I want to read it:

Because I'm a sucker for great assassin stories. And if there's more to it, as it seems there is, that's so much better!




So how about you? What amazing book are you waiting on this week?
