Throwback Thursday (36)

Let's talk about those books already on the shelves, yours or the stores.

I have a post for books I'm looking forward to coming out;

Looking Forward To...
But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on the shelves.

Whether it be on your shelf waiting to be read or on the shelves in the stores waiting for you to give it a good home.

So, I thought I would share a book a week that is just waiting for me to travel through it's world.

Now... where do I start? Lets go by Published Date on the books...

This Week:

I've not had this one as long as other books, but going by publishing date it falls next in the list.  But it sounds like a read I would really enjoy.  And about Assassins.  I love reading about assassins. :)  Hope you enjoy the sounds of this one.

Goodreads Synopsis:
The Kingdom of Sieunes is rife with taverns, dirty streets, and clay pipe smoking citizens all toiling to feed their families and keep themselves in something little better than rags. With a foiled revolution just ten years prior still burning in the hearts of many, the royals enlist the aid of assassins to keep things in order. The townsfolk entertain themselves by dreaming of better times to come and regaling in stories of the undead said to walk the graveyards at night. . . and of Cameo the killer with corpse-like eyes. . .

Scarred and jaded Cameo is one of the most effective assassins in the employ of the Association, moving from one mission to the next as long as the alcohol keeps flowing. Her acceptance of the murder-for-hire lifestyle is thrown into doubt when she meets a local highwayman with a penchant for fine clothes and women, and then she begins to think about breaking with the company but no one ever breaks with the Association under good terms.

Hi Melissa

I actually bought this book a while ago & Its still lying in my TBR pile. I should get to it sooner.

If you do read it earlier than me, would like to hear your thoughts on it.

I guess never books should get a bit of spotlight too, since they get old too on the shelf ;)

Blodeuedd - Yep. I feel back for all these amazing books waiting for me to read them and me being the turtle speed reader I am. So have to share them a little bit. :)

Petty Witter - Hi! :) Glad you like the sounds of it.

Mel - lol. Yes we do! Those assassins get us in trouble everytime. ;D Glad to introduce you to a new book. :)
