Cover Candy #15 - Recent Swoonworthy Cover Reveals!

It's time to feast your eyes on another edition of Cover Candy! Lately it seems that I'm finding more and more pretty covers. Everywhere I look, there's another pretty cover. Which is great for this feature! So, here are my picks of some latest swoonworthy cover reveals!

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


First up is Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard. I am on a contemp binge at the moment, and I can't wait to get my hands on this book.  Combining travel and romance, this sounds like my perfect book! If anyone has read Kirsten's debut 'Like Mandarin' I'd love to know what you thought of it. It's been on my TBR list for a while, but I haven't picked up a copy yet.

Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Release date: March 2012
Ages: 14+

It all begins with a stupid question:

Are you a Global Vagabond?

No, but 18-year-old Bria Sandoval wants to be. In a quest for independence, her neglected art, and no-strings-attached hookups, she signs up for a guided tour of Central America—the wrong one. Middle-aged tourists with fanny packs are hardly the key to self-rediscovery. When Bria meets Rowan, devoted backpacker and dive instructor, and his outspokenly humanitarian sister Starling, she seizes the chance to ditch her group and join them off the beaten path.

Bria's a good girl trying to go bad. Rowan's a bad boy trying to stay good. As they travel across a panorama of Mayan villages, remote Belizean islands, and hostels plagued with jungle beasties, they discover what they've got in common: both seek to leave behind the old versions of themselves. And the secret to escaping the past, Rowan’s found, is to keep moving forward.

But Bria comes to realize she can't run forever, no matter what Rowan says. If she ever wants the courage to fall for someone worthwhile, she has to start looking back

Oooh, look at the pretty! Michelle Zink's Guardian of the Dead series had some exceptionally pretty covers, and it looks like this is set to continue with her new book, A Temptation of Angels. Can't wait to read this one!

A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink.
Publisher: DIAL
Release date: March 2012
Ages: YA

When her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendents charged with protecting the world’s past, present, and future. Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility. Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.

Michelle Zink masterfully weaves history with paranormal romance to create a gripping tale of love and betrayal

I recently stumbled upon Destined by debut author Jessie Harrel, and, I admit, it was the pretty cover that caught my eye. Then I read the synopsis of this one, and I pretty much think it sounds amazing! Look out for this one in November 2011. Hopefully Jessie will be stopping by on the blog too! :) 

Destined by Jessie Harrel
Publisher: Mae Day Publishing
Release date: November 2011
Ages: YA

When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear.

As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she's come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined.

Destined is a fresh and heartachingly romantic retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth from debut novelist, Jessie Harrell.

I love, love, love the synopsis for Fracture by Megan Miranda. This is another debut, and I really can't wait to get my hands on this one! The cover is simply stunning too. Love it! Bloomsbury have the UK rights for this one, so we'll be getting it over  here too. Yay!

Fracture by Megan Miranda
Publisher: Walker Books for Young Readers
Release date: January 2012
Ages: 12+

Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine—despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she’s far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can’t control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?

Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she’s reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy’s motives aren’t quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature—or something much more frightening?

For fans of best-sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death.
