Find out more about Saturday's Sentence Game click here

So today is Halloween, and also the last day of Saturday's Sentence Game (for the time being anyway!) so today I thought I would go for an assassin theme. That's right, bad-ass female main characters who aren't scared of getting rid of people permanently. As normal I have avoided any major spoiler's, so the books in this weeks Saturday's Sentence Game are:
The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
Spider's Bite by Jennifer Estep (adult book)
Shaedes of Gray by Amanda Bonilla (adult book)
Assassins in Love by Kris DeLake (I haven't actually read this book yet so have no idea if it's any good!!)
