My Stack of Books

So I’ve been trying to read more lately, and out of the blue I also decided it was high time to reread one of my favorite series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians. So now I have a stack of books.


The Winner’s Curse–the cover on this book is gorgeous!  So pretty!  And after reading a couple of reviews and the sample chapter on Goodreads, I wanted to read it.  Also–fun fact–it’s written in third-person past, which is kinda unique for YA these days.  (well, as far I as can tell.)

The Percy Jackson books–basically, Percy is the best narrator ever.  He’s so funny and loveable!  And then Annabeth and Percy…well, they are so shippable from, like, the first time they meet.  If you haven’t read this series, you totally should.

The Mazerunner–I’m moving slow with this one.  It’s not that I don’t like it…it’s just…everyone is so mean and secretive to Thomas.  He’s so confused, poor guy.  I totally plan on finishing this book (and I think I’ll like it), but when I have to choose between reading about Thomas being all confused and Percy making fun of mythology and being epic…well, I go with Percy.

Full-Metal Alchemist–I’ve read two volumes in this manga series, and I’m loving it!  It’s funny, but also epic and even tragic at times.   I’m waiting on volume three from the library (of course volume four came in first.)

So what have you been reading lately? Have you read anything in my stack?  And most importantly, have you read any of the Percy Jackson books?  Do tell!

The Cover

I’m so excited to reveal the cover of Corroded Thorns today!  I just love how it turned out. Anne Elisabeth did an amazing job designing the cover. Without further ado, here it is…


A fairy godmother—in prison? Madeline can’t remember even being a fairy godmother, let alone doing something bad enough to land her in a cell. When a mysterious lady sends her back to her old village with cryptic instructions and no answers to her many questions, Madeline must find a way to free her father, who has been imprisoned in a tower by a terrible beast.

First banished by his father the king, then cursed by an angry fairy, Prince Darcy will do anything to escape this fate and achieve revenge and power. Just when he thinks his chance has arrived, by some cruel trick of fate a girl from his past returns and once again wreaks havoc on his life. Worse still, he begins to question what he truly desires.
