Announcing January's TBR Pile Read Along!

Hi guys! Thanks for joining our 2015 TBR Pile Reading Challenge! As you know, every other month we'll be hosting TBR Pile Read-a-Longs to help you (and us!) tackle our TBR Piles :)

Last week we posted a voting poll and asked you to vote on the book you'd like to read together with us in January! And the winner is . . . *drumroll*

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas!

As a bit a side note, there was actually a tie. It ended up being between this book and Steelheart by Brandon Anderson. I planned on flipping a coin, but decided to go this route instead:

I know it's pretty crappy video quality (Blogger's fault) and it's short horizontally (my fault), but this seemed like the fairest way to break the tie.   :)   And if you're wondering, yes. I gave him the treat that was in front of Steelheart too.

Meet Celaena Sardothien.
Beautiful. Deadly.
Destined for greatness.

In the dark, filthy salt mines of Endovier, an eighteen-year-old girl is serving a life sentence. She is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake: she got caught.

Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament—fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin’s heart be melted?
