Waiting On Wednesday # 77 – The Assassin's Blade & Hothouse Flower


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where I have the chance to spotlight an upcoming release that I’m eagerly anticipating.

The Assassin's Blade
The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5)Author: Sarah J. Maas
Series: Throne of Glass 0.1-0.5
Genre: YA Fantasy
Expected Publication: March 4th 2014







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.

Hothouse Flower
Hothouse FlowerAuthor: Krista Ritchie & Becca Ritchie
Series: Addicted Spinoff
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Expected Publication: March 2014







Ryke Meadows, meet Daisy Calloway ... she’s all grown up.

Twenty-five-year-old Ryke Meadows knows he’s hard to love. With a billion-dollar inheritance, a track-star resume, and an alpha-male personality—he redefines the term likable asshole. But he’s not living to make friends. Or enemies. He just wants to free climb three of the toughest mountains in Yosemite without drama or interruption.

And then he receives a distressed call from a girl in Paris—a girl that he has never been allowed to have.

Daisy Calloway is eighteen. Finally. With her newfound independence, she can say goodbye to her overbearing mother and continue her modeling career. Next stop, Paris. Fashion Week begins with a bang, and Daisy uncovers the ugly reality of the industry. She wants to prove to her family that she can live on her own, but when everything spirals out of control, she turns to Ryke to keep her secrets.

As Daisy struggles to make sense of this new world and her freedom, she pushes the limits and fearlessly rides the edge. Ryke knows there’s deep hurt beneath every impulsive action. He must keep up with Daisy, and if he lets her go, her favorite motto—“live as if you’ll die today”—may just come true.

Standalone New Adult Romance: recommended for readers 18+ for mature content

  10. I'm really interested in reading Maas' series...ah, but I haven't had the time. :) And I really, really want to read the Ritchie sisters' books. I did the cover reveal for Hot House Flower - although this cover is different - and my curiosity was definitely piqued. ;) Luckily your wait isn't much longer, Naomi!
