Waiting on Wednesday - Queen of Shadows

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spines (check her out here), that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I know that I haven't done this in a LONG time, but I've decided to do this one because of the book.

This week's most anticipated book is Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas.

Here's the goodreads synopsis for it:
"Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she's at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past...

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen's triumphant return.
Celaena’s epic journey has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the globe. This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena’s story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world."

I am so insanely excited about this book, 'cause last time I checked, it didn't even have a title or cover. Look at it now! I love the redish pink color, and how she looks ready to take her revenge. Heir of Fire was an awesome book which ended with the characters in awesome situations (whether good or bad). Does anybody know if we're going to see Rowan at all? I mean, with the events of Heir of Fire, I can't be sure. I'm eager to see Chaol, Dorian, Manon, and Aedion, but Celaena the baddass of them all still wins first place. Am I the only one who's a little confused about the hair? What happened to it? I do like how it tells the transformation of her to the queen that she is. Anyways, I don't feel like that summed up my excitement, but just bear with me.

This book will be out on September 1st, 2015. SO EXCITED!

Versatile Blogger Award

A new blogger award! I was nominated by the awesome people that is Haley and Carina from My Addiction Books & Jayne from Booking Awesome. Thanks so much for nominating me!


1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link back to their post
2. Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you've recently discovered or follow regularly and that you think are excellent
3. Let them know they've been nominated (be sure to send them a link for the post)
4. Tell your nominees 7 things about yourself.

1. To start from the basic, I am an Indonesian girl living in Texas, a girl of two siblings, and a girl of black hair.

2. My favorite animals are cats.

3. I (well, my family) used to have 4 cats in Indonesia before we left them for US. One day, a black cat followed my maid inside the house after she took out the trash. We ignored it, of course, until it became a she who was pregnant and about to give birth soon. So, we gave her a home in our garage so that she can have her kittens. One day after I came back from school my mom told me that she (the cat, not my mom :P) had 3 kittens. We couldn't play with them until the 3rd week, when we let them free inside the house. After that, I played with them and watched them grow. It was so heartbreaking to leave them. More so when the phone where I had pictures of them when haywire and deleted everything. Including the pictures.

4. I lived in Australia for two years when I was in preschool, and one of the only thing I could vividly remember that at school, we had nap time. Amazing, right? We would have blankets at school and just took a nap. I miss those days.

5. I have glasses, and my friends asks why I don't change to contacts, but to be truthful, I am scared of them. The only reason is that when I was about 8 (or was it 10?), I was in a McDonald restroom, and I saw somebody putting theirs on. Me being so young, I thought that the lady was poking her eyes. I didn't even know what contacts were. It was a very traumatizing experience.

6. My obsession with BTVS started when I saw Buzzfeed's post of Beginner's Guide to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I saw this really awesome picture that perfectly depicts my road to obsession. I'll link it here. Anyways I'm in the beginning of season 6 (and 3 for Angel).

7. I am obsessed with quotes. You probably already know it, but it's true. I have a board in Pinterest that has 400+ quotes and it's s little bit ridiculous, but who cares!

I nominate (I'm just going to do 4):
Anna from Unqenchable Reads
Jasmen from This Girl Reads a Alot
Amber from Books of Amber
Katie from Kittens and Books

Okay! That's it for today. It's good to be back in the blogging routine. Thanks for reading!
