I keep forgetting Rick Riordan has a new series out. I loved Percy Jackson but haven't really read much else, good to hear it's good!

Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse said...

I'm writing some of these YA ones down for my 14 year old. I have a feeling she will love them. Happy 2022!

I haven't read any of these but The Hawthorne Legacy (which did make my list!), but I wanna talk about all these awesome options you're putting forth for a minute.

Violets Are Blue is a new title to me, but it looks compelling. And goodness, The Girl Who Ruined Christmas sounds really cute but it looks absolutely nothing like any middle grade novel cover I've seen lately and exactly like a lot of light contemporary adult books. Not a criticism at all, I just need to know the backstory to this choice.

Lastly...Jenna Sakai is one of the prettiest covers I've ever seen. I don't even know why, exactly, just -- the color scheme, the font, the amount of Stuff on the table and spilling out of her bag on the floor that's all ALSO perfectly whimsical in style and color...I want to live inside this picture, or maybe eat it like a delicious cupcake.
