Cover Me! (3)

Are freaking gorgeous. I wanted to make sure I shared. So...here are some that have come out recently that I didn't want you to miss. Why? Because they are gorgeous. :)

Leigh Fallon's debut novel sounds really, really good! And I like this cover!

A move to Ireland is about to introduce Megan to her destiny, her real destiny, can she embrace it and will she survive it?

A tragedy in Megan’s past set her on a predetermined course. A chain of events has been set in motion that brings Megan to Kinsale, a small town in the south of Ireland where her destiny awaits her. Her life starts to fall into place as she makes new friends and settles into her new school. However, the reclusive and distant Adam DeRĂ­s calls to her body and soul.

She finds herself increasingly drawn to Adam and his strange family. Adam knows a secret from her past and he and his family hold the key to her future. A future that binds her to Adam and his world, a world of power, mystery and ancient orders. A world that unbeknownst to her, she very much belongs in. 

Myra McEntire's amazing debut is one I'm super pumped for. I love Myra--and I can't wait to read Hourglass. And look at the cover---girl is on the wall! 
Since the age of fourteen, Emerson Cole has seen strange things – dead things – swooning Southern Belles, soldiers, and other eerie apparitions of the past. She’s tried everything to get rid of the visions: medication, counseling, asylums. Nothing’s worked.

So when Emerson's well-meaning brother calls in yet another consultant from a mysterious organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to give it one last try.

Michael Weaver is no ordinary consultant. He's barely older than she is; he listens like no one she's ever met before; and he doesn't make her feel the least bit crazy. As Emerson ventures deeper into the world of the Hourglass, she begins to learn the truth about her past, her future--and her very life.

A seductive time-slip novel that merges the very best of the paranormal and science fiction genres, Myra McEntire’s Hourglass is a stunning debut from an author to watch .
Comes out May 24!

Here's another I can't wait for (but have to as it doesn't come out until Sept) by Michelle Hodkin.

Mara Dyer believes life can’t get any stranger than waking up in a
hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember
that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed. There is.

She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been
through, she can fall in love. She’s wrong.

Yup...I know, right? The cover's been around for awhile now but I still love it. 

To the left is the paperback cover of Tricia Rayburn's book SIREN. I loved the hardcover but wow, this is pretty.  And to the right is the cover for the sequel: UNDERCURRENT. It is equally beautiful. There's no description yet of the book, but it comes out on July 12, 2011.

Siren description:
Vacationing in Winter Harbor, Maine, is a tradition for Vanessa and Justine Sands, and that means spending time with the Carmichael boys. This summer, Vanessa is determined to channel some of her older sister’s boldness, get over her fear of the ocean, and maybe turn her friendship with Simon Carmichael into something much more.

But when Justine goes cliff-diving after a big family argument, and her body washes ashore the next day, Vanessa is sure that it was more than an accident. She is more certain of this, when she discovers that her sister was keeping some big secrets and Caleb Carmichael’s gone missing. Suddenly, the entire oceanfront town is abuzz when a series of grim, water-related accidents occur, with the male victims washed ashore grinning from ear to ear. 

Vanessa and Simon team up to figure out if these creepy deaths have anything to do with Justine and Caleb. But will what Vanessa discovers mean the end of her summer romance, or even life as she knows it?

I loved Heist Society by Ally Carter. And finally, here's a cover for the sequel: Uncommon Criminals. If you haven't read Heist, you need to.

Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life. Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she’s simply been known as the girl who ran the crew that robbed the greatest museum in the world. That’s why Kat isn’t surprised when she’s asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners.

There are only three problems. First, the gem hasn’t been seen in public in thirty years. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long, and in Kat’s world, history almost always repeats itself. But it’s the third problem that makes Kat’s crew the most nervous and that is simply… the emerald is cursed.

Kat might be in way over her head, but she’s not going down without a fight. After all she has her best friend—the gorgeous Hale—and the rest of her crew with her as they chase the Cleopatra around the globe, dodging curses, realizing that the same tricks and cons her family has used for centuries are useless this time.

Which means, this time, Katarina Bishop is making up her own rules.

Here are two more covers that I really think are pretty that have also come out in the last few weeks.

Maybe it's just me, but there definitely seems to be a theme among most of these covers. Perhaps grey, mysterious and alluring is in!


  1. I really like the covers for Hourglass and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Those are ones that just keep getting better for me the more times I see them. And I love the cover for Uncommon Criminals, too!

  2. Wow, I haven't heard of any of these titles, but if I saw them in a bookstore I would be tempted to buy them right then and there based simple on the cover.

  3. Wow! I love The Carrier of the Mark cover...BEAUTIFUL!

    But I hope they make another cover to match the original HC Siren, although those covers are beautiful.

  4. Great covers, especially the Hourglass and Mara Dyer ones. I've been dying to read the latter for a LONG time. :)

  5. I really like the cover of Hourglass. Question though: Did you pick these because they all feature women in similar poses? After a few, they all kind of look the same. Maybe that's just my unprofessional artistic eye talking though : )!

    Nice of you to feature some great upcoming books!

  6. I really love them all too...

    Mary Mary: No, I didn't even notice that until you said that! I picked them b/c they are the ones I've seen around. But you do have a point. That's what I was saying at the end--the color schemes and such. Didn't even notice the poses.

  7. Wow - these are gorgeous covers - & they sound like great books! :)


Thanks for your comment!! I appreciate you stopping by! :)
