Cover Candy #5 - Recent Swoonworthy Cover Reveals!

It's time for another Cover Candy post.  If it's a book cover that I'm swooning over, I might feature it here! I love finding new books, especially those with gorgeous covers, but I can't feature them all as my Waiting on Wednesday picks, so I decided to dedicate this feature to them instead!

Let me know what you think of the featured covers in comments. Will you be adding any of these to your wishlist?

 First up this time round is the UK cover for Where she Went by Gayle Forman.  I loved If I Stay, and I've previously featured this one as a Waiting on Wednesday pick, with it's US cover.  I love the simplicity of the US cover, but this one with has added features that show more about the story and it's setting. I'm so excited to read this one!

Where She Went by Gayle Forman
Publisher: Doubleday
Release date: April 2011
Ages: 14+

It's been three years since the devastating accident ... three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.

Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.

I'm really excited to read Forgotten by Cat Patrick.  I love the sounds of this book, and I think I'll have to pick up a US copy of the book, as I prefer this cover to the UK cover.  I love the colours on this cover - it reminds me of summer! 

Forgotten by Cat Patrick
Publisher:  Little, Brown Books
Release date: June 2011

Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that's left is a note telling her about a day she can't remember. The whole scenario doesn't exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can't seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can't make sense of, she realizes it's time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

Part psychological drama, part romance, and part mystery, this thought-provoking novel will inspire readers to consider the what-if's in their own lives and recognize the power they have to control their destinies.

Another book  I'm really looking forward to reading this summer is Hereafter by Tara Hudson.  This one sounds all haunting and mysterious, and as such, the cover is very fitting.  I'll also be interviewing Tara for Delightful Debutantes, so I'm excited for that!

Hereafter by Tara Hudson
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release date: June 2011
Ages: 12+

Can there truly be love after death?

Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.

Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.

Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter is a sensation you won't want to miss.

 * Please note: Not all of these covers are final and may be subject to change. If the cover is changed, I will update with the new cover!

  7. I'm super excited for all three of these!

  8. All the covers are good, but the summaries are what really catching eye. I really need to read If I Stay now so I can get Where She Went. I think Hereafter is the prettiest cover though.

  9. @DJ - Good to hear that Hereafter is a great read. I haven't read any reviews of that one yet!

    @Jan - I agree - the summaries are great. I only include books that sound really great too. If it's a book with a great cover that sounds not so good, I won't include. :)

  10. The Synopsis for Forgotten by Cat Patrick sounds wonderful! I can't wait to read it.

  11. I love love love the cover for Forgotten! Actually...I love all of them! These books are high on my TBR pile :)

  12. Love, love, love the covers for Forgotten and Hereafter, they're stunning! I just love the little pops of red on Forgotten's cover, I would definitely pick that one up off the shelf! I still need to read If I Stay so I can get ready for Where She Went, I'm behind:(

  13. Ah, so nice! Love them all.

  14. I love Forgotten and Hereafter! The stories sound wonderful, too! I haven't read If I Stay yet.

  15. I think Hereafter is the best one :)

  16. They’re all so pretty. Loving Forgotten the most :)

  17. Love love love the Where She Went cover! And I hadn't heard of or seen the cover of Forgotten. Very pretty.

  18. Love all of the covers and agree with you regarding Where She Went - I love the added background detail, it just gives the book an added depth. Forgotten is also a book that is on my TBR list as is the gorgeous Hereafter :)

  19. I love the Forgotten and Hereafter covers. Both stories sound very intriguing. Look forward to your reviews of them.

    I've already pre-ordered my copy of PW's Black Heels to Tractor Wheels -- out Feb 1. These books are world's apart, aren't they. :)
