Oh my God! The pretty!!!!
I don’t know if words alone can adequately express how much I freakin’ love this cover! I know the pages within will totally live up to this beauty! I cannot wait until March 19th!!!!!
A few weeks ago, I read and reviewed the dystopian novel Enclave by Ann Aguirre, and I absolutely loved it. It was dark, gritty, and, if it’s not too tacky to quote myself, it made “the world of The Hunger Games look like a romp through one of Mary Poppins’ magical paintings.” The main character, Deuce, was a wonderful example of a strong female character, and I’m eager to read the next book in this series, Outpost. The cover of Outpost was just released, and I’m so happy to share it with you right here!
I love how similar it is to Enclave‘s cover. (I really hate it when series cover designs change. It makes my bookshelves look weird.) I’m also intrigued by the blurb about Outpost on the author’s webpage (where you can also read the first two chapters for free), http://www.annaguirre.com/books/ya-novels/outpost/. I look forward to seeing how Deuce asserts herself in her new digs and what she’ll have to do to fight the Freaks that are getting smarter and more cunning. I’ll also admit that I’m a little anxious about her relationship with Fade and how Stalker is going to muck things up.
Outpost is set for a September 4th release. I know there’s a book trailer in the works, but I don’t know the details yet on when that will be available. If it’s anything like the trailer for Enclave, it’s sure to be creeptastic.
If you haven’t read Enclave yet, be sure to check it out as soon as possible. This is a great read for those Hunger Games fans who are looking for another great dystopian series to mezmerize them!
I know I’ve been going a little cover crazy recently, but I can’t help it! So many of my favorite series/authors are releasing the covers of their next books, and I simply must share the joyous news! The latest cover reveal (thanks to EW Shelf Life) is from the Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. The fourth and final novel in this saga, Beautiful Redemption, will be in stores on October 23rd. I will buy the book as soon as humanly possible, and I’ll add this beautiful cover to those already on display.
Beautiful Redemption joins Beautiful Creatures, Beautiful Darkness, and Beautiful Chaos in telling the tumultuous story of Ethan Wate and Lena Duchannes. The series, set in Low Country South Carolina, is a supernatural, Southern Gothic masterpiece that definitely keeps readers on their toes.
A movie adaptation of Beautiful Creatures, the first in the series, is already in the works, with filming set to begin in New Orleans in April. Emma Thompson, one of my favorite actresses, has been cast in the movie! According to IMDB.com, the movie should be out sometime in 2013.

If you’re a fan of Andrea Cremer’s Nightshade trilogy, you probably already know that a prequel, Rift, is on its way. I’m happy to announce that we now have a cover for what is sure to be an amazing book. (Thanks to the folks at MTV’s Hollywood Crush for the announcement!)
According to MTV’s cover release, the story will focus on how the war between the Searchers and the Keepers began (the Witches’ War), and the heroine of the tale is a fierce girl named Ember. There will be nods to events in the Nightshade trilogy (Nightshade, Wolfsbane, and Bloodrose), so true fans will have fun connecting events (and even characters?) in Rift to the stories we already know and love.
I urge you to check out the full article at http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2012/03/01/rift-cover-andrea-cremer/, as well as their exclusive peek at the first chapter (http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2012/01/03/andrea-cremer-rift-first-chapter-nightshade-prequel/). Rift is set for an August 7th release.
Forget the intro. Let’s get to the good stuff!
I think this is my favorite cover of Ally Condie’s Matched trilogy, and I’m so looking forward to seeing how this conclusion(?) plays out for Cassia, Ky, and Xander.
For more information, including a Q & A with Ally Condie, check out the official title/cover announcement at Entertainment Weekly’s ShelfLife (http://shelf-life.ew.com/2012/03/02/matched-trilogy-by-ally-condie-see-the-cover-and-title-for-the-third-and-final-book-plus-condie-answers-burning-questions-exclusive/). You can also visit Condie’s website at http://www.allysoncondie.com/ or follow her on Twitter @allycondie.
If you’re a fan of James Dashner’s Maze Runner series, you probably know that a prequel is on the way. The Kill Order, which tells the story of how sun flares scorched the earth and society fell to disease, will be released on August 14th. Check out the official cover below:
I think it’s awesome, and I can’t wait to read about the events that led to the creation of WICKED and the dreaded maze. If you haven’t read the Maze Runner series already–The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials, and The Death Cure–I definitely encourage you to do so. It’s a great series and is perfect for those Hunger Games fans who are looking for a dystopian story from a guy’s perspective.

Today is a great day to be a fan of Sophie Jordan’s Firelight trilogy. The gorgeous cover for the third book in the trilogy, Hidden, has just been released on the author’s website. Take a look at the pretty below!
This book is going to look great next to my copies of Firelight and Vanish. Hidden will hit stores in September, so if you haven’t read the first two books in this trilogy, you’ve still got plenty of time. You won’t be sorry!
For all of you Tera Lynn Childs fans out there, she has just released the cover of Sweet Shadows, the second book in her Medusa Girls series. (Sweet Venom was the first.) Check it out below!
The book is expected to be released sometime this year, but I don’t have a final date yet.
If you’d like more information on Tera Lynn Childs and her wonderful books (Sweet Venom, Oh. My. Gods., Goddess Boot Camp, Forgive My Fins, and Fins Are Forever), visit http://teralynnchilds.blogspot.com/. The third book in her Fins series, Just for Fins, is set for a July 3rd release.
If you just heard something that sounded like a little girl squealing, that was me. I just saw the cover for Cassandra Clare’s highly anticipated City of Lost Souls (book five in the Mortal Instruments series), and I am absolutely in love with it.
Jace and Clary? I believe so! USA Today released the cover minutes ago, along with an excerpt from City of Lost Souls (which I will read as soon as I finish with this post). For the full article, go to http://books.usatoday.com/bookbuzz/post/2012-01-04/cover-reveal-of-cassandra-clares-city-of-fallen-angels/596348/1. Now, the wait until May 8th will be positively horrible!
I’m so excited about the cover for the third and final book in Kiersten White’s Paranormalcy series!!! It’s so pretty…and purple!!! It’s even making me use excessive exclamation points!!!! Check it out!!!!
I have to say this is one series where you can totally judge a book by it’s cover. Both Paranormalcy and Supernaturally had awesome, beautiful covers, and the stories inside were equally awesome and beautiful. If you haven’t read them yet, do so as soon as you can. Endlessly doesn’t come out until July 24th (and the wait will likely kill me…or make me really cranky), so you have plenty of time to catch up. What are you waiting for? Start reading!!!!
