Strange as This Weather Has Been by Ann PancakeSet in present day West Virginia, Ann Pancake’s debut novel, Strange As This Weather Has Been, tells the story of a coal mining family— a couple and their four children— living through the latest mining boom and dealing with the mountaintop removal and strip mining that is ruining what is left of their mountain life. As the mine turns the mountains to slag and wastewater, workers struggle with layoffs and children find adventure in the blasted moonscape craters.
Strange As This Weather Has Been follows several members of the family, with a particular focus on fifteen-year-old Bant and her mother, Lace. Working at a “scab” motel, Bant becomes involved with a young miner while her mother contemplates joining the fight against the mining companies. As domestic conflicts escalate at home, the children are pushed more and more outside among junk from the floods and felled trees in the hollows— the only nature they have ever known. But Bant has other memories and is as curious and strong-willed as her mother, and ultimately comes to discover the very real threat of destruction that looms as much in the landscape as it does at home.
Celaena Sardothien & Sam Cortland (Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas)
She has many names, which include, but are not restricted to; Lillian Gordaina, her faux-name to hide her true identity while fighting to be a champion, and Elentiya Elle-len-tee-yah which is given to her by Nehemia when Celaena reveales to her that she is an assassin and not Lillian Gordaina. My name is Celaena Sardothien. But it makes no difference if my name's Celaena or Lillian or Bitch, because I'd still beat you, no matter what you call me. Celaena Sardothien's photo gallery.

What’s the Throne of Glass Series?
That being said, I had already read Throne of Glass , and I own the entire series of books, and had been planning on continuing. Maas just finished the series, the final book releasing this month. Celaena comes in a bit shorter than some of the other characters, but not nearly the shortest. Not only are these routines for all shapes and sizes — they also work for both men and women — regardless of the gender of the hero! Schwab, which is the second newly released book of the Villains series, which I just reviewed Vicious Book One last month. In Crown of Midnight she is shown waking up every single morning with Chaol to go for a long run together. Celaena is also incredibly quick, and has endured vigorous and insane amounts of assassin and martial arts fighting; the art of stealth, weaponry, and overall fighting allows her to best nearly every opponent.
By Fabien. On December 28, In Reading Guide. Written by Sarah J. Maas, the Throne of Glass is a fantasy series that takes us in a land without magic where we follow Celaena Sardothien, an year-old assassin in the kingdom of Adarlan. This leads her to great and dangerous adventures, world-shattering revelations and more. The first line for the 2nd book that you wrote completely spoils the whole book 1.
Love this spotlight!! So true that Celaena is tough and has lived through a lot of things that normal people like myself would never have survived. She kicks major butt and I love how everyone who didn't like her necessarily in the first book kinda fell in love with her in the end. Great quotes. I still need to read Crown of Midnight but now after reading this post I feel like rereading the first book again. Thank you so much for sharing!
