Review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Pages: 420
Source: Purchased
Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book DepositoryiTunes
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.

Stacking the Shelves #2 EBOOK EDITION!

     As the rain is pouring down outside, and the lights are flickering I thought it would be a great time to list all the E-books I have hauled recently. Who doesn't love blogging to the sound of thunder and the tapping of the keyboard? I really enjoy reading E-books so my library is filling up.

#1 The Witch of Painted Sorrows by M. J. Rose

   Tika from Fangirl Confessions was the one to persuade me to get this one. I really have no clue what its about, but I think it will be good to go into blind.

   #2 My Life With the Walter Boys by Ali Novak 

     I got this book because it was originally a Wattpad story which is awesome! It looks like it will be a nice short summer read. The cover also says "One Girl. Twelve Boys. One Roof." This sounds like a disaster waiting to happen!

#3 Vicious by V. E. Shwab 

     I hear nothing but good things about this book! YouTuber Reagan from PeruseProject recently talked about this book in a "Rainy Day Reads" recommendation video. Rain is exactly what I've got. I hear great things from all of Shwabs books.

#4 The Girl With All the Gifts by M. R. Carey

       I also heard about this book on YouTube, and I actually think it was Reagan again! This book sounds amazing. Something about soldiers coming to get a little girl whom everyone is afraid of and strapping her in a wheelchair at gunpoint just for school? I'm basically the worst at giving a synopsis but just click the title for a goodreads link!

So these are the E-books I got in June. I didn't get any physical books last month because I am trying to catch up on review books and the ones I already own. I'll be doing another haul for July soon (sadly)!

                                                                      XO, Mal!
