In case you didn’t know, it’s Camp Nanowrimo this month. I would’ve done this on Friday, but I’ve been so busy writing that I forgot to update my blog! (And my co-worker is really sick so I had to cover his shifts for him)

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Genres: Young Adult, High Fantasy

Star rating: ★★★★☆

A summary:

91cvPamvpeLFrom 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.

Welcome To My Blog!

Hey guys, and welcome to my blog!

So this blog is brand spanking new and I have no idea how to work wordpress, but bear with me! In this blog I want to write many reviews about my favourite books (and also the ones i dislike). I’d like to just talk about books. Books, books, books. I love books. And probably do some giveaways, because who doesn’t love free books (I currently have a spare /unread/ copy of City of Heavenly Fire looking for a new home too …). And I’d like to talk about plots, character arcs, and all that. Maybe I’ll share some writing here too. Who knows.

Since I’ve never written a review before, my next post will be a review (possibly of Crown Of Midnight, seeing as a finished it a few days ago). I don’t plan on writing a review at this moment in time – it’s almost 1am, and this girl’s gotta sleep. And I also need to learn how to write a good review. Which I hope won’t be too hard, but I’m currently having to google any word longer than four characters because I’m too tired for this.

I honestly have no idea what I’m doing, I just thought making a book blog would be fun.
