Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking The Spine that puts the spotlight on books we just can't wait for!    

Blurb from goodreads: "A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.

It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend."

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.

Ever since I read the first book, I couldn't get my mind off of this!

Welcome New Bloggers!!

Exciting news 2 of my friends have agreed to join this blog. Their names are Lilly  and Christina! Let's learn a little bit more about them! I asked them to write down a few things about themselves and put it together!

Hi I am Lilly Nyugen a nerd, FUTURE author, and a YA book reader. I'm 17. To be approached by Balie and being asked to contribute to floralpatternbooks was quite a suprise. As much as I love reading, I'm not the type of girl who can voice out her opinion. It took me weeks to say yes. I'm new to the blogging communtiy, so things seem a little scary! But Balie can help me. I'm looking foward to this blog and meeting new people.  

Hey I'm Christie a.k.a Christina. I have been reading Balie's post since the beginning. Never would I have thought that I would be part of it. When Balie offered me a chance to be her co-worker I jumped at the chance! To host giveaways, meet new people, and talk about books is like my dream! I already met Lily and she's a little shy, but she is cool. I look forward to working with her and Balie. 

Does that mean that I (Balie) will stop posting? NO! I invited these 2 awesome girls because running a blog and having school can get a little tiring. I just needed a helping hand!

Happy reading, Balie, Lilly, and Christina    

Throne of Glass Review

Title: Throne of Glass
Author: Sarah. J Mass
Blurb (Goodreads): 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 four 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.


This book is awesome. I loved it! 5 STARS BABY FIVE STARS!!! I loved the main character Celaena is awesome. I loved her character the best. She knows how to kick-butt and look pretty at the same time.I SHIP CHAOL WESTFALL AND Celaena SO MUCH! Chaol is like Jace. Chaol has mixed feelings about. But isn't it obvious THEY DESERVE EACH OTHER!! Dorian in my opinion, I don't like him.
This book is so interesting. Celaena is a criminal who is released to become The Kings Champion (assassin). But to obtain the title she must fight other assassins. Until, one by one the other competitors start dying off as well. Then she meets the first dead queen of Adarlan . Than weird stuff start happening. Okay so I'm not a good explainer but if you read the synopsis up above than you would find it interesting.

The structure flowed, and on some parts it was a little rocky, but it's really good! I have to get my hands  on the second book.


Celanea's like

I'm like


What happened at the end was really weird. I just didn't get what happened when Cain and Celeana. Also, it was pretty obvious ghat Cain was killing everyone.
