Cover Candy #18 - Recent Swoonworthy Cover Reveals!

Cover Candy catch-up time! Feast your eyes on these pretty covers!

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

The Unquiet is one of my top wish listed books for 2012 for sure. Take a look at the cover, and then read the synopsis and tell me that you don't want this book RIGHT NOW! Can't wait to read this one!

The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA.
Release date: July 2012
Ages: 14+
Sixteen-year-old Rinn Jacobs has secrets: One, she’s bipolar. Two, she killed her grandmother.

After a suicide attempt, and now her parents' separation, Rinn and her mom move from California to the rural Ohio town where her mother grew up. Back on her medications (again!) and hoping to stay well, Rinn settles into her new home and school. She refuses to be daunted by the fact that the previous owner hanged herself in Rinn's bedroom, or that her classmates believe the school pool is haunted by Annaliese, a girl who drowned there. But when a reckless séance goes awry, and terrible things start happening to her new friends—yet not to her—Rinn is determined to find out why she can’t be "touched" by Annaliese...or if Annaliese even exists.

With the help of Nate Brenner, the hunky “farmer boy” she’s rapidly falling for, Rinn devises a dangerous plan to uncover the truth. Soon reality and fantasy meld into one, till Rinn finds it nearly impossible to tell the difference. When a malevolent force threatens the lives of everyone she cares about--not to mention her own--she can't help wondering: who should she really be afraid of?

Annaliese? Or herself?

Here's some pure Cover Candy! Just look at that dress!! The Selection, a dystopian described as Cinderella meets The Bachelor releases in April 2012 from Harper Teen.

The Selection by Kiera Cass
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release date: April 2012
Ages: 13+

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself- and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

When I first saw this cover (which I LOVE) I wondered if somehow Lauren Kate had added another book to her Fallen series that had somehow, inexplicably, passed me by, but no. Even though this cover screams Luce to me, this book is entirely new and different from the Fallen series, and it sounds like a  pretty good one too! Darkness Before Dawn releases June 2012 from Harper Teen.

 Darkness Before Dawn by J.A. London
Publisher: Harper Teen.
Release date: June 2012.
Ages: 14+

This electrifying new trilogy blends the best of paranormal and dystopian storytelling in a world where the war is over. And the vampires won.

Humans huddle in their walled cities, supplying blood in exchange for safety. But not even that is guaranteed. Dawn has lost her entire family and now reluctantly serves as the delegate to Lord Valentine, the most powerful vampire for miles. It isn’t until she meets Victor, Valentine’s son, that she realizes not all vampires are monsters....

Darkness Before Dawn is a fresh new story with captivating characters, unexpected plot twists, a fascinating setting, and a compelling voice. Written under the name J. A. London by a talented mother-son team, the trilogy is perfect for fans of True Blood and the House of Night and Morganville Vampires series

Here's the Australian cover for Hallowed by Cynthia Hand. I love the Aussie covers for this series! If you haven't already seen the Australian cover for Unearthly take a look here (scroll down) and SWOON. :)
