Cover Candy: Some Recent Cover Favourites!

It's true, I stalk cover reveals like it's nobody's business! 

What's your pick of this bunch of recent reveals?



Night Wanderers by C.J. Flood || Release date: June 2016

It all started with a poo in a flowerbed. 

Rosie and Titania are as close as sisters - closer, in fact. While Rosie is shy, red-faced and passive, Ti is big, tough and daring. They shouldn't be friends, but they are. 

Creeping out at night, the girls love to secretly wander through their coastal town, exploring empty streets and sharing their frustrations about school and their different, but equally difficult, families. 

But when Rosie betrays Ti, the two girls run in different directions - making decisions that could do irreparable damage to both of their lives. As Rosie confronts harsh truths, she must find a way back to Ti, and to herself. 

Whenever I heard the word kindred I thought of me and Ti.

This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills || Release date: October 2016

Sloane isn't expecting to fall in with a group of friends when she moves from New York to Florida—especially not a group of friends so intense, so in love, so all-consuming. Yet that's exactly what happens.

Sloane becomes closest to Vera, a social-media star who lights up any room, and Gabe, Vera's twin brother and the most serious person Sloane's ever met. When a beloved painting by the twins' late mother goes missing, Sloane takes on the responsibility of tracking it down, a journey that takes her across state lines—and ever deeper into the twins' lives.

Filled with intense and important friendships, a wonderful warts-and-all family, shiveringly good romantic developments, and sharp, witty dialogue, this story is about finding the people you never knew you needed.

The Women in the Walls by Amy Lukavics || Release date: September 2016

Lucy Acosta's mother died when she was three. Growing up in a Victorian mansion in the middle of the woods with her cold, distant father, she explored the dark hallways of the estate with her cousin, Margaret. They're inseparable—a family.  

When her aunt Penelope, the only mother she's ever known, tragically disappears while walking in the woods surrounding their estate, Lucy finds herself devastated and alone. Margaret has been spending a lot of time in the attic. She claims she can hear her dead mother's voice whispering from the walls. Emotionally shut out by her father, Lucy watches helplessly as her cousin's sanity slowly unravels. But when she begins hearing voices herself, Lucy finds herself confronting an ancient and deadly legacy that has marked the women in her family for generations.

The Graces by Laure Eve || Release date: September 2016

Everyone said the Graces were witches.

They moved through the corridors like sleek fish, ripples in their wake. Stares followed their backs and their hair.

They had friends, but they were just distractions. They were waiting for someone different.

All I had to do was show them that person was me.

Like everyone else in her town, River is obsessed with the Graces, attracted by their glamour and apparent ability to weave magic. But are they really what they seem? And are they more dangerous than they let on?

This beautifully-written thriller will grip you from its very first page.

And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich || Release date: September 2016


A stunning, terrifying novel about a house the color of blood and the two sisters who are trapped there, by The Dead Houseauthor Dawn Kurtagich 

When Silla and Nori arrive at their aunt's home, it's immediately clear that the "blood manor" is cursed. The creaking of the house and the stillness of the woods surrounding them would be enough of a sign, but there are secrets too--the questions that Silla can't ignore: Who is the beautiful boy that's appeared from the woods? Who is the man that her little sister sees, but no one else? And why does it seem that, ever since they arrived, the trees have been creeping closer?


Filled with just as many twists and turns as The Dead House, and with achingly beautiful, chilling language that delivers haunting scenes, AND THE TREES CREPT IN is the perfect follow-up novel for master horror writer Dawn Kurtagich.


UK Cover/Title

*****


Nightwanderers by C.J. Flood has such a beautiful cover! Her debut Infinite Sky is a beautifully written coming-of-age tale, and I expect this one will contain similarly pretty prose. The description reminds me a little of Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard. It seems that books about difficult friendships are having a moment!

First & Then by Emma Mills was my favourite debut of 2015 and I'm really looking forward to This Adventures Ends. Also, can we just talk about this cover? So gorgeous!

Daughters Unto Devils was one of my Halloween reads last year (remember those scarecrows!!) and I've already added The Women in the Walls to my Halloween reading list for this year. Creepy old mansions, whispers in the walls and a deadly family legacy. I'm so there!  This one publishes on October 6th in the UK. 

The Graces by Laure Eve sounds like a great witchy read. I am always on the loookout for great witchy reads!

The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich didn't really work for me, but I like the sound of The Creeper Man  so I'll be checking it out.  I'm all about those creepy houses!
