Cover Candy #13 - Recent Swoonworthy Cover Reveals!

So much pretty with the cover reveals lately. I can barely keep up!  Here are my picks of the latest swoonworthy cover reveals. I love them all!

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


I've been following Brodi's blog for a while now and I was super excited to see her cover reveal for Everneath last week.  Everneath is partially based on the Hades/Persephone myth, and it's got a very pretty cover. I'm also very interested to find out if  Brodi has based either of the love interests here on  our mutual obsession, Rafa Nadal. ;) Can't wait to read this one!

Everneath by Brodi Ashton
Publisher: HarperCollins/ Balzar + Bray
Release date: January 2012
Ages: 14+

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

Oooh, how gorgeous is this cover?! So much pretty.  I am a fan of all things witchy, although I usually stick to modern day witchy stuff. Still, I think the combination of witchcraft and history makes this book sound like a winner, and with this cover, I have to see what lies inside!

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Release date: February 2012
Ages: YA

Cate Cahill and her sisters are considered eccentric bluestockings—a little odd, a little unfashionable, and far too educated for their own good. The truth is more complicated; they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it could mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave. Before their mother died, she entrusted Cate with keeping them safe and keeping everyone, including their father, in the dark about their powers. When her father employs a governess and Cate begins to receive notes from her missing, presumed-mad godmother, her task becomes much more difficult. As Cate searches for answers in banned books and rebellious new friends, she must juggle unwanted proposals, tea parties, and an illicit attraction to the new gardener. Cate will do anything to protect her sisters, but at what cost to herself?

There is a lot of buzz surrounding Tempest by Julie Cross.  The movie rights have already been snapped up by Summit Entertainment (of Twilight fame), and it features time travel, romance and all that other good stuff that we all love! This one will also be published in the UK by Macmillan!

Tempest by Julie Cross
Publisher: Macmillan/Thomas Dunne
Release date: January 2012
Ages: YA

Jackson thought he had all the time in the world with Holly. Until time took him away from her . . .

Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy . . . who just happens to be able to travel through time. It’s all just harmless fun until the day Jackson witnesses his girlfriend, Holly, get fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years, but it’s not long before the people who shot Holly come looking for him. And these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit (or kill) this powerful young time-traveler. Jackson must decide how far he is willing to go to save Holly . . . and the entire world

This sounds like a great contemp with an edge - just how I like them! I'm hoping this shows up on Galley Grab!

Where it Began by Ann Redisch Stampler
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release date: March 6th 2012
Ages: YA

Gabby Gardiner wakes up in a hospital bed looking like a cautionary ad for drunk driving and lacking a single memory of the accident that landed her there. What she can remember, in frank and sardonic detail, is the year leading up to the accident. 

As she takes us through her transformation from invisible girl to on-trend Girl Who Dates Billy Nash (aka Most Desirable Boy Ever), she is left wondering: Why is Billy suddenly distancing himself from her? What do her classmates know that Gabby herself does not? Who exactly was in the car that night? And why is Gabby left alone to take the fall?

Putting the pieces together will take every ounce of Gabby's strength. As she peels back the layers of her life, she begins to realize that her climb up the status ladder has been as intoxicating as it has been morally complex...and that nothing about her life is what she has imagined it to be.

Check out this cover for Faery Tales and Nightmares, a collection of short stories by Melissa Marr! I'm not usually one for short stories, but this cover is so pretty that I might just need it for my bookshelf!
