Cover Crush: Shadow of the Mark, Vortex & September Girls
It seems a bajillion covers were released this week. Here are the ones we’re making sexy eyes at:
Let’s go to the beach & make out
Whether it’s straight up beach cuteness in Susane Colasanti’s All I Need, or Instagram-filtered hot’n'heavy rolling around in Leila Howland’s Nantucket Blue, OR artsy dramatic underwater kissing in Bennett Madison’s September Girls, we are FANS.
Anna Wintour Would Approve
This fashion mag-ready cover for Leigh Fallon’s Shadow of the Mark is just as gorgeous and striking as her first book, Carrier of the Mark.
These sci-fi sequels are striking and kind of badass. And we get not one but TWO Vortexes (errr..vortices?)! We already saw a stab at Julie Cross’s Tempest sequel, Vortex, back in July, but the cover wizards took another pass at it, and it turned out beautifully (still no touching though).
The sequel to S.J. Kincaid’s fabulous cyberpunk Insignia, also called Vortex, is motherboard ready with its colorful circuitry (and the cover was revealed on a new series fan site—SO happy this series is getting its due, including motivated fans!!).
Elizabeth Norris just had rock star MTV series news, now she gets a fabulous MTV-worthy, slightly sassy cover for her Unraveling sequel, Unbreakable.
Up to No Good, & Looking Good
Aprilynne Pike’s Life After Theft and Kirsten Miller’s How to Lead a Life of Crime both sound amazing, and are totally new types of stories for these two established authors. We can’t wait to read them!
Richelle Mead’s new novel, Gameboard of the Gods and Lauren Miller’s Parallel both put a Photoshop-filtered face front and center, and it is certainly striking.
Teri Brown’s Born of Illusion, Eve Silver’s Rush and Kate Quinn’s Another Little Piece each have title typeface that I want to upload on my Mac and use for my own personal correspondence (I mean, you can fit people INSIDE the letters of Rush! I want people letters in my email!).
