So fellow awesome blogger Sarah, from Words With Sarah created her own meme to help cut down on her TBR pile by, featuring a book each week that she will be reading that has been on the bookshelf for three months or more. I love this idea because that is definitely an issue I have with books sitting on my shelf for way too long.
My read for this week is
The Assassian's Blade (Throne of Glass 0.1-0.5) By: Sarah J. Mass
Contains all five novellas.
Celaena Sardothien is Adarlan's most feared assassin. As part of the Assassin's Guild, her allegiance is to her master, Arobynn Hamel, yet Celaena listens to no one and trusts only her fellow killer-for-hire, Sam. In these action-packed novellas - together in one edition for the first time - Celaena embarks on five daring missions. They take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, where she fights to liberate slaves and seeks to avenge the tyrannous. But she is acting against Arobynn's orders and could suffer an unimaginable punishment for such treachery. Will Celaena ever be truly free? Explore the dark underworld of this kick-ass heroine to find out.
I love the Throne of Glass series and I really had been wanting to read the novellas so when I found out they were coming out with a book, I preordered it immediately, so to get ready to read Heir of Fire I picked this one up. I can't wait to read some more of tough Celadena and get a better understanding of who she was before Throne of Glass. Also, this cover is just gorgeous in person!
