Födelsedagsböcker och snygga omslag

Jag fyllde år förra veckan och fick då två böcker som jag verkligen önskat mig. 
The Raven Boys av Meggie Stiefvater har jag spanat på ett tag, och jag såg också att den snart kommer ut på svenska, då med titeln Kretsen

Blue has spent the majority of her sixteen years being told that if she kisses her true love, he will die. When Blue meets Gansey's spirit on the corpse road she knows there is only one reason why - either he is her true love or she has killed him. Determined to find out the truth, Blue becomes involved with the Raven Boys, four boys from the local private school (lead by Gansey) who are on a quest to discover Glendower - a lost ancient Welsh King who is buried somewhere along the Virginia ley line. Whoever finds him will be granted a supernatural favour. Never before has Blue felt such magic around her. But is Gansey her true love? She can't imagine a time she would feel like that, and she is adamant not to be the reason for his death.

Sedan fick jag Between two ends av David Ward och kan vi bara ta en minut till att titta på detta fantastiska omslag! Jag älskar det! 

Yeats has always known his family has secrets. When he and his parents visit his grandmother's house in an attempt to face his dad's depression head-on, Yeats reunites a pair of pirate bookends and uncovers the amazing truth: people can travel into books! Yeats uses his discovery to attempt a rescue of his father's friend Shari, who has been stuck in The Arabian Nights for thirty years. Assisted by the not-always-trustworthy pirates, Yeats must navigate the unfamiliar world of the story of Shaharazad - dodging guards and tigers and the creepy things that lurk in the margins of the stories - in order to save Shari and bring peace to his family at last. A fantasy rich with atmosphere and full of heart-stopping drama.
