Destined by Jessie Harrell
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publication date: Nov. 17, 2011
When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear.
As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she's come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined.
Destined is a fresh and heartachingly romantic retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth from debut novelist, Jessie Harrell. (Goodreads.com)
Uh, hello gorgeous cover! That alone makes me want to read this book. But, I loooove the myth of Cupid and Psyche. That is probably my all time favorite myth. The first time I ever read it, I cried. I want to read this book sooo bad!
