Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.This is one book I can't wait to get into a bookstore and buy. I love the cover it is so eye catching, and that what looks like filigree on the cover AWESOME! Another thing that makes the book a want for me is the other day I was invited to a chat with fellow blogger and who was there none other Julie Kagawa she's so down to earth and just easy to get along with. Iron King storyline is also captivating. I'm so excited to buy this book.

The Lightning Thief
Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he cant seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worsePercy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. Percys mom decides its time that he knew the truth about where he came from. She sends Percy to Camp Half-Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island) , where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.This is yet another book to pine for. When I was working one day I passed it by in the kid's section and never looked back, then I saw the mini preview and decided to look it, and I was delighted to find some awesome reviews on the book. From reading the description it's kind of has a Harry Potter vibe to it (and not the whole witches and wizards aspect, but the mystery and adventure)!! This is a need got to explain this to my mom when I'm broke and need to beg for money to pay for my addiction.... :)

1. Wondrous Strange
This week I keep giving yet another fabulous wish-list. I have started poking in Wondrous Strange (when I say poking I mean in and out of reading it). I'm loving it and Darklight looks like it's going to be just as fabulous, and the reviews are great so I'm guessing I'm in for a treat with this one!
Love the cover!
