It's also maple season in Canada which means McDonald's has come out with a Maple Latte and let me tell you, it's amazing! You can really taste the maple in it and they top it off with whipped cream and maple sugar. Ugh. So good. Do yourself a favour, and go buy one before they disappear from locations!
Throne of Glass
I finally started the Throne of Glass series last month. I'm now two books down, and I'll be starting the third tomorrow. Why have I not read these books sooner?! I seriously didn't expect all the supernatural aspects in the stories and to love the main character, Celaena Sardothien, so much.
This is the synopsis from Goodreads for the first book in the series:
"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."
Seriously, if you're a fan of the YA genre and fantasy books, go start this series!
