Cover Crush: Arclight, Reboot & Wild Awake
Since we were on newsletter hiatus last week, this week’s cover crush will do double duty.
Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green and Red by Alison Cherry both want you to shut up and keep their secrets, please. Thanks, covers. Now I have the Pretty Little Liars theme song stuck in my head.
The latest books in Karsten Knight’s Wildefire series, Afterglow, and Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Covenant series, Apollyon, light flowers on fire for your cover entertainment.
We Come From the Future….
The covers for Josin L. McQuein’s Arclight and Amy Tinters’ Reboot make me want to scan them with my phone. Please tell me these are elaborate QR codes that take you to kickass special secret chapters.
Hilary T. Smith’s Wild Awake looks like an iPod commercial. The kind that makes you want to dance around your apartment to the Ting Tings. As if that wasn’t TBR pile bait enough, none other than Gayle Forman blurbs the book: “This absorbing debut explores that most profound mystery of all: love.” Cover, you are as clever as Apple at getting me to throw my money at you. Pre-ordered!
Poe Would Be Proud
Mary Lindsey’s Ashes on the Waves and Bethany Griffin’s Dance of the Red Death are dramatic and moody and lovely, like any self-respecting Poe-inspired YA should be.
Emmy Laybourne’s Monument 14: Sky On Fire and Mary Gray’s The Dollhouse Asylum are unsettling and freaky, each in their own special ways.
Yes—it’s almost here!!
You know that one book you’ve been eagerly awaiting, obsessively counting down the days until it arrives on shelves? It could show up to its cover reveal wearing a garbage bag and you’d be thrilled, because PROGRESS is being made. For me that book is Quintana of Charyn, book three in Melina Marchetta’s fabulous Lumatere Chronicles. It’s SO incredibly unfair that the Aussies get to read this six months before we do (yeah, yeah, she LIVES there, so local readers get dibs, I know, but March 2013, seriously??).
