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.

January 2019 TBR

January 2019 here we are! Honestly I can’t believe its 2019!

So to start off the year here are the books I’m planning to read to kick off the year!

Ok so to start off this year I am only putting 3 books on my TBR but I am hoping to get to a couple more this month, but don’t want to put too many expectations on myself.

I am starting off with ‘Assassin’s Blade’ By Sarah J. Maas. I read ‘Throne of Glass’ By Sarah J. Maas and decided to read ‘Assassin’s Blade’ second to get a back story on Celaena before I continued on with the series.

Once I finish that I am going to read the second book in the Throne of Glass Series ‘Crown of Midnight’, which I will hopefully finish sooner rather than later so I can finish ‘Heir of Fire’ before the end of the month.

I read Throne of Glass in December as part of the Christmas at Hogwarts read-a-thon and now I just want to know how its all going to go! So I am really hoping to complete the series at the start of this year.

Which is kind of fitting seeing as I read the ACOTAR series in February last year!

What are you planning to read this month?
