Covers! Standoff, Royal Wedding, The Fever and more

Very stunning! 

A bit bizarre, but it makes me do a double take.

Looks great (and will look perfect with the first book)!

A NEW PRINCESS DIARIES BOOK!!!! Excuse me while I fangirl. I loved these books as a teenager, so I'm excited to see Cabot's writing an adult novel for Mia. 

Cover Changes

(original cover / current cover)

I loved how the original expressed the vanishing concept, but I like the new one too. 

(hardcover / paperback)

Both are ominous, but the first makes me more curious.

(hardcover / paperback)

Small change, and I like both.

Any other covers catch your eye?

Update and The Maze Runner Twitter Party


Firstly, I'm FINALLY back from my blogging break! I had a crazy first semester of grad school, and it's nice to have some relaxation time. Plus, that crazy 1-hour oral exam for my graduate program (where I had to read 154 works and take the exam without notes)? I passed! So happy that is over, because that took over all of my free time. It will be so nice to finally be able to read for fun, instead of for school.

I'll be slowly easing back into blogging over the next couple weeks and catching up on commenting this weekend. 


Friday, December 19th 
5PM PT | 6PM MT | 8PM ET

I saw this in theaters, and trust me, the film is just as thrilling and exciting as the book. There are some book-to-film changes, but I liked the ones that were made. I'm not sure if I'll be at the twitter party, since it will be difficult to get my hands on the movie before Friday, but I'll try! It's bound to be fun!

Hope everyone is doing well! Happy holidays!

Waiting on Wednesday (155): THE NOVICE

WOW is hosted by Breaking the Spine

THE NOVICE by Taran Matharu
May 5th, 2015 from Feiwel & Friends

When blacksmith apprentice Fletcher discovers that he has the ability to summon demons from another world, he travels to Adept Military Academy. There the gifted are trained in the art of summoning. Fletcher is put through grueling training as a battlemage to fight in the Hominum Empire’s war against orcs. He must tread carefully while training alongside children of powerful nobles. The power hungry, those seeking alliances, and the fear of betrayal surround him. Fletcher finds himself caught in the middle of powerful forces, with only his demon Ignatius for help.

As the pieces on the board maneuver for supremacy, Fletcher must decide where his loyalties lie. The fate of an empire is in his hands. The Novice is the first in a trilogy about Fletcher, his demon Ignatius, and the war against the Orcs.

Sounds like a fascinating story! And I quite like the slight Throne of Glass vibe the cover is giving off...I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this book next year. 

What are you waiting on?
