Reading this Friday:
By: Sarah J Maas, about whom more can be found here. Debut novel.
What's it about? What if the pretty princess was an assassin, and the big event was a competition to be King's Champion instead of a ball? But you still kept romance and intrigue in the mix and threw in some mystery and magic for good measure?
Why did I pick it? I've been an avid reader of the blog PublishingCrawl ever since before it was PubCrawl and was Let the Words Flow. Sarah has been a regular contributor and I've loved her story of how Throne of Glass evolved from being a FictionPress story to a published book.
Who will like it? I won't say you have to like fantasy to like this book, but if you are a fantasy fan, this is a great pick. It also helps if you like strong but complicated heroines and love interests with some depth.
Judging a book by its cover: Can you for this book? I love the nearly etched look of the Glass Castle in the background, but have to confess--Celaena wears way better clothes in the book than she does on its cover.
What are you reading heading into the weekend?
