Waiting on Wednesday: A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

Happy Wednesday! WOW is a weekly post created by Breaking the Spine to talk about anticipated releases. This month, as well as September, have some super-awesome releases in store. I did Empire of Storms last week, so my next most-anticipated is the sequel to the very cliffhangery novel, An Ember in the Ashes, which is A Torch Against the Night.

A struggle that I’m sure many of you have experienced is completely forgetting literally everything that happened in the first book of the series, especially when there’s a year-long hiatus until the sequel.

PROTIP: I’ve found the awesomest website ever for recaps. It’s called Book Series Recaps, and they have a ton of popular YA book summaries on there. Go check them out–its blogs like these that make the book world a better place.

Here is the recap for An Ember in the Ashes, for those of you who need it. I remember that it was well-written and that there was a very swoon-worthy guy, but that’s about it. Don’t ask me for names.

I know quite a few people received an ARC of this at one of this year’s conventions. I’m BEYOND JEALOUS!!!! Please no spoilers! Also, big news: books three and four in this series were approved! Yay! Continue reading


Crown of Midnight Summary

Here’s the next summary in the Throne of Glass Re-readathon! Okay, maybe I should have written this right after I finished the book, because I may have accidentally finished the series…oops. Hopefully I don’t forget anything important.

Note: this is meant as a refresher, not to replace reading the book. I highly recommend using this only if you’ve already read ALL of the Throne of Glass series.

See my other summaries.
