Monday Recs. - 6/2/14

Wow it's June already! Seriously, where does the time go?? Okay well I have no idea where it goes and I really have no idea what to recommend because I know what I like to read but I have no idea what you guys like! I mean do you want a YA or NA or contemporary or mystery or romance or Norse Mythology or paranormal or a pschological thriller recommendation! There are so many books to choose from I always have a hard time coming up with stuff! Oh!! I just came up with a really good series. Okay here we go...

This week's Monday Recommendation is the Throne of Glass Trilogy by Sarah J. Maas (I'm pretty sure I haven't used these books yet...). The third book isn't out yet but these books are just absolutely well written and the character and world building is amazing. And I mean, who doesn't love a book that has assassins and magic?!?

Summary: After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. 

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. 

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. 

Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.(
