Cover Candy #17 - Recent Swoonworthy Cover Reveals.

Today I have another installment of delicious Cover Candy for you to feast your eyes on. So much yum that you just might fall into a sugar coma!

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


I LOVE this cover! It's one of my favourite recent covers for sure! Fated, the first book in Immortals author Alyson Noel's new Soul Seekers series will be released in both the US and UK in May 2012. I haven't seen the UK cover yet, but I'll post it up here when it's available. I'm excited for this new series!

Fated (Soul Seekers #1) by Alyson Noel.
Publisher: St. Martins Griffin.
Release date: May 2012.
Ages: YA.

*official synopsis is not available. This is from an interview where I asked Alyson about the new series.*

A Young Adult paranormal, about a sixteen-year-old girl who, as the daughter of an on-location makeup artist is used to a vagabond, movie-set existence until she begins having terrifying visions her grandmother recognizes as the call to her ancestral legacy, and summons her to New Mexico where she teaches her to walk among the Upperworld and the Underworld and trains her in the magick she’ll need to battle the malevolent forces that have lain dormant for years but are now rising again…Oh, and of course there’s a high school, friends, and a guy so hot my fingers get scorched just typing him!

*The next two books featured are next in a series books, so if you don't want spoilers, don't read the synopsis. Just look at the pretty covers! 

I've always loved the covers of the books in Katie Alender's Bad Girls Don't Die series. They are super creepy,  and this cover for Book #3 As Dead is no exception. SHAME ON ME though - I haven't read any of the books yet, although I do own a copy of the first book in the series, which I must get to soon. So many books, so little time and all that...

As Bad As It Gets (Bad Girls Don't Die #3) by Katie Alender.
Publisher: Hyperion.
Release date: May 2012.
Ages: YA.

It's been three months since Alexis helplessly witnessed Lydia Small's violent death, and all she wants is for her life to return to normal.But normal people don’t see decaying bodies haunting photographs. Normal people don’t have to deal with regular intrusions from Lydia’s angry ghost, sometimes escalating to terrifying attacks.
At first, it seems that Lydia wants revenge on Alexis alone. But a girl from school disappears one night, and Alexis spots one of Lydia’s signature yellow roses lying on the girl’s dresser the next day. Soon, it becomes clear that several of Alexis’s friends are in danger, and that she's the only person who can save them. But as she tries to intervene, Alexis realizes that her enemy is a much more powerful ghost than she's ever faced before... and that its fate is tied to hers in ways she couldn't possibly imagine.

Not even in her worst nightmares.

Eeek! Another series that I haven't started even though I've had the first book since it released. I'll get to that one soon too. Promise, promise! Diva, the third book in Jillian Larkin's Flappers series releases in July 2012. Diva, the first book in the Flappers series has its UK release in March 2012. You can see the cover for that one here.

Diva (Flappers #3) by Jillian Larkin.
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers.
Release date: July 2012.
Ages: YA.

Parties, bad boys, speakeasies—life in Manhattan has become a woozy blur for Clara Knowles. If Marcus Eastman truly loved her, how could he have fallen for another girl so quickly? Their romance mustn't have been as magical as Clara thought. And if she has to be unhappy, she's going to drag everyone else down to the depths of despair right along with her.

Being a Barnard girl is the stuff of Lorraine Dyer's dreams. Finding out that Marcus is marrying a gold digger who may or may not be named Anastasia? A nightmare. The old Lorraine would have sat by and let the chips fall where they may, but she's grown up a lot these past few months. She can't bear to see Marcus lose a chance for true love. But will anyone listen to her?

Now that the charges against her have been dropped, Gloria Carmody is spending the last dizzying days of summer on Long Island, yachting on the sound and palling around with socialites at Forrest Hamilton's swanky villa. Beneath her smile, though, Gloria's keeping a secret. One that could have deadly consequences . .

 Here's the paperback cover for Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma, and, guess what? You got it right first time. I haven't read this one either...YET! I can't decide whether I prefer this new cover or the original hardback cover. What do you think? I can't really decide. I think I love them both! Have you read Imaginary Girls? Is it one you'd recommend to me?

Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
Publisher: Speak.
Release date: June 2012.
Ages: YA

Chloe's older sister, Ruby, is the girl everyone looks to and longs for, who can't be captured or caged. When a night with Ruby's friends goes horribly wrong and Chloe discovers the dead body of her classmate London Hayes left floating in the reservoir, Chloe is sent away from town and away from Ruby.

But Ruby will do anything to get her sister back, and when Chloe returns to town two years later, deadly surprises await. As Chloe flirts with the truth that Ruby has hidden deeply away, the fragile line between life and death is redrawn by the complex bonds of sisterhood.

With palpable drama and delicious craft, Nova Ren Suma bursts onto the YA scene with the story that everyone will be talking about

And...Last but not least, here is the cover for Dreamless the second book in Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed series. I can't wait to read this one. I've been told that it's so hot it sizzles!! Dreamless will be released in the US and the UK in May 2012. This is the US cover - love the colours that they've used for this one. I'll post up the UK cover as soon as it's available!

  1. Gorgeous covers! I so want to read Fated!! I have not read a book by her yet. Can you believe that? Well...don't worry about not reading the Bad Girls Don't Die books either...neither have I. lol

  2. How could you do this to me? I can't take THESE GORGEOUS covers thrown in my face like that. What's wrong with you... XD

  3. I love all of these covers, especially Dreamless. I loved Starcrossed, so I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this one. I also had forgotten about Noel's Soul Seekers series....definitely sounds promising and I am a fan of her writing! I have a copy of the first Bad Girls Don't Die, but haven't gotten around to it and I can't believe there is going to be a third Flappers book. I really liked the first one and I need to get caught up! Thanks for sharing these, Leanna!

  4. These covers are so pretty! I'm gonna check out Alyson Noel's book though :)

  5. Love, love, love Fated's cover. 2012 has a ton of good-looking covers to be released.

  6. I can't wait for Dreamless! They all look gorgeous. Will have to add to my wish list now.

  7. All of these covers are gorgeous, and I am very interested in Fated. The story sounds like one I would really enjoy and while I did not enjoy Noel's Evermore series this one sounds like the protagonist might be stronger and less whiny.

  8. SO PRETTY! I hadn't seen the cover for Dreamless yet, love it! I'm really excited for that book, I loved Starcrossed and cannot wait for more. I like that the girl's face isn't cut off this time:)
