Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.

While Celaena learns of her true destiny, and the eyes of Erilea are on Wendlyn, a brutal and beastly force is preparing to take to the skies. Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?
 
First off can I say that this book has one of the highest ratings on Goodreads that I have ever seen? Also I have not heard ONE person say they didn't like this book, and there is a great reason for that because this book is EPIC!!!!! So many questions are answered in this one. I don't want to give too much a way in case someone is reading this who has not read the first two books. Lets be honest we all do it at some point. I loved the world building in this book because it not only gives us extraordinary details, but it also answers a lot of questions that were left unexplained in the first two books. HOLY CRAP were things intense when we learn We get to see so much more of the true Celaene and not just scratch the surface. I always loved Celaene but now I feel like I understand her and know the true her. She finds herself and we get to take part of that journey which is EPIC in case you were wondering. BEST CHARACTER GROWTH EVER, and not just from Celaene. There were old characters that we all have grown to love. They get their own spots in the spotlight in this book which I enjoyed. It was nice to see them as individuals and not just what they are to Celaene. We get to see their true feelings, beliefs, and their own problems.
There are new characters that were introduced and every single one of them were fantastic. These characters are so well developed that you love to love them or love to hate them. There is not one character that was introduced that felt not needed which happens often in books.
This is a huge book and you guys have heard before how I feel sometimes with big books. I will feel overwhelmed with all the information the book gives me, I feel like I will forget something important. I will feel like I will never finish the book and end up feeling discouraged. I DID NOT feel that way with this book because I flew through it. I was shocked at how fantastic this book was. How do these books keep getting better and better? If you are scared this book will disappoint you don't. You will love this book just as much as I do.
Make sure to let me know you thoughts on this book =)

Tea Review: Davids Tea Cold 911

Cold 911 Emergency relief Bad colds require kick butt interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and apple. Pretty kick butt, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah...we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great. (MK Kosher) Ingredients Organic: Peppermint, apple, juniper berries. With natural eucalyptus and orange flavouring*.
So fun fact, while helping six year olds practice their reading you may will get spit on. Another fun fact when they are sick and spit on you, you will get sick and feel like the walking dead. Times like this is why I am so happy that I stocked up on some of Davids Tea . Yup you guessed it after being spit on I was sicker than a dog. I was coughing, running a fever, m…

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I couldn't decide which type of villain I wanted to write about, so that lead me to do subcategories. I feel like such a rebel!
Villains I Love To Hate 
The Beautiful Pretender I have a review of this book coming soon so I won't say too much, but there is a character I absolutely hate. Most villains have redeeming qualities, but this character had lacked any of those qualities. She loved to hurt others and was completely heartless. 
The Falconer The Villain in this book was completely cut throat, heartless, violent, and everything I love to hate. This Villain did things that ripped my heart out, stomped on it, then put it through a shredder. 
Empire of Storms I have n…
