Thirteen Days to MidnightSummary from Goodreads:

Guardian of the GateSummary from Goodreads:
"The ultimate battle between sisters is nearing, and its outcome could have catastrophic consequences. As sixteen year-old Lia Milthorpe searches for a way to end the prophecy, her twin sister Alice hones the skills she'll need to defeat Lia. Alice will stop at nothing to reclaim her sister's role in the prophecy, and that's not the only thing she wants: There's also Lia's boyfriend James.

Lia and Alice always knew the Prophecy would turn those closest to them against them. But they didn't know what betrayal could lead them to do. In the end, only one sister will be left standing."

Prophecy of the Sisters PB

*The cover was released today, as well as the new paperback cover of Prophecy of the Sisters!  I think they are beautiful, but I don't think that they have the same 'feel' as the the hardcover of Prophecy of the Sisters.  What do you think??

Now you know what I am waiting for!  What are you waiting on?


  1. Wow, both of those sound really good. I love the covers of Michelle Zink's books!

  2. Wow, these sound awesome. I'll add all of them on my list :)

  3. Those covers ARE beatiful, but I do agree with you that they dont have the same feel.

  4. Great pick! Also, the covers for Michelle Zink's books are so striking!

  5. Great picks. I cant' wait for 13 Days to Midnight!

  6. I loved Prophecy of the Sisters, so I really can't wait to read Guardian of the Gate. I'm a little disappointed that the covers on my copies won't match, but I do think the new covers are lovely.
