So...there's not a full synopsis yet.  Or even cover art.  It may be premature to say this, but I'm coveting the release of this fall's next new Cinderella-inspired novel, THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas!

[EDIT: 1/13/12] The book was previously titled QUEEN OF GLASS, but on January 13th, Sarah J. Maas revealed that the title has been changed to THRONE OF GLASS.  I'm excited; are you?

I found out about it because I felt like reading online one day and was googling lists of good titles.  I came across THRONE OF GLASS, which was pulled offline due to being picked up by Bloomsbury for publication.  The story sounded great, so of course, I've been stalking Sarah's blog ever since and counting down the days!!

SUMMARY: "An infamous young assassin who is more than she seems must battle her way to freedom in a corrupt kingdom where magic has been outlawed."

What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?
