This "Book Mail" Thursday is actually more of a "Waiting on Thursday". I got my copy of Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh in the mail yesterday (finally) and now I'm waiting on one more book. After this next book comes I won't be getting any more book mail until late September / Early October :(

I ordered a signed copy of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas from GCR's virtual signing for the EOS release since I haven't read any of the books in that series so that should be coming by Friday or Saturday. I hope I like it as much as I like the ACOTAR series. Here's the book for those of you unfamiliar with the series...
Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas
After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.
Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.
Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.
Why I Bought This Book:
I love the ACOTAR series and since the third book in that series doesn't come out until next year, (I think! Don't hold me to that) I thought I would read SJM's other series while I wait.
