Didn’t really follow through with my December TBR, so I’m not going to do a wrap-up for you, but I’ll start fresh with the new year and give you a January 2017 TBR. . . even if it is a few days late. Did anyone else have a crazy December and beginning of January? Where did the time go? But I am looking forward to the new year with new books.

So, here they are:

**Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. MaasImage result for crown of midnight

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.

I’m still finishing this one up from last month because I was a bit of a slacker over winter break and decided to focus more on bingeing TV and wedding planning than reading, but, oh well, it is what it is.

Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.

Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.

When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.

He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.

For those of you who read this regularly, you know I am a huge Elise Kova fan. This is the first book in her first non-YA series, and I am so excited about it. I cannot wait for this book to come out on January 10th, and hope to have a reiew out for you before it’s release date.

When Adela’s trident is branded into a murdered servant, Prince Baldair’s summer amusement of treasure-hunting becomes a hunt to find the killer.

Yes, there are two Elise Kova books on this list. This, however, is the first book in a trilogy that is based off the Air Awakens trilogy. I’m pretty excited about this one as well. I can’t wait to jump into the early stories of the characters that I have learned to love.
