Meet Celaena Sardothien.
Beautiful. Deadly. Destined for greatness.
In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, Celaena, an assassin, is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion. The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glass—and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her.
I got this from my school library. I l…

Hello, Wikia Books Hub, this is Concernedalien11780. As the next step of my quest to write a blog post on each wiki on Wikia that is based on something I'm interested in, I have come to the Books Hub. Seems to have been bad timing on my part, seeing as how now Wikia's main page has been redesigned and modernized, and now only has links to the Games, Movies, and TV Hubs, requiring me to find another link to get here. I guess that's because those three hub wikis are the most frequently visited, but it makes my plans that I've had since the summer a little more difficult to realize. I guess those three are the most visited because unlike books, comics, and most of what's under the Lifestyle Hub, things in the film, television, and video game …Read more >

Touching upon "duplicate images", I would like to just upload some film poster of films based on books that I've seen, in the highest quality I can find, before anyone uploads some really low res stuff under really bad SEO file names. This is THE Books Hub, so films obviously aren't the main focus, nonetheless, it's been done, let's just make sure it only gets better.
The first few edits are just to get the images uploaded to the Hub. I WILL eventually write my thoughts... but the keyword is eventually.

I could easily create yet another user page, but I figure in order to let people be aware of the issue, in this case I'd make it a blog.
Those are images with duplicates that appear on pages regular users are not able to edit; I am obviously unsure if I got all of them, seeing that there's images on the hub and I didn't want to spend any MORE time looking through them as I already have.
When first finishing this blog documentation, there's 35 images with duplicates

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book, and aside from a few errors (which will obviously get fixed in the final version), I freaking loved it!
The characters are really great (in the sense of how they influence the story, not necessarily as people), being super believable and live. The themes of freedom/feminism/abolitionism, family/loneliness, and over coming adversity also help to make this book "readable" for any and everybody. The settings are also really interesting, especially towards the end of this book. All of these characteristics mixed with the historical/magical-realism aspects of this book give it a powerful impact on the reader (at least, it did for me).
I'm not sure if I would say this book blowed me away, I don't thin…Read more >
