Cover Reveals

I love these posts and try to save them for a time when there is a lot of cover reveals going on. And this is that time. Of course, there is a very special cover reveal happening on Monday *cough* Maggie Stiefvater *cough* but that will require a special post. For now, this is what I've found this week...
First up is Possession by debut author Elana Johnson. This is a Dystopian novel (and boy am I loving Dystopian fiction right now) being published by Simon & Schuster (in the US) next year. Publisher's Marketplace said that "Posession is set in a brainwashed society where those gifted with mind control best join the powers that be, but one rebel girl tries to beat them at their own game." Well, all I can say is that I love the cover, I love the title and I love the premise. So it's WIN WIN WIN. I'm definitely putting this one on the wish list.

Next up we have Blessed which is the third book in the "Tantalize" series. I have both books in this series and am ashamed to say that I have not yet read them. YET being the most important word in that sentence. I hear great things about them though and I really like Cynthia as an author. She's always full of helpful advice (I love her website). I'm definitely adding this one to the wish list on her reputation alone. This will be published on 8th February, 2011.

Fins Are Forever is the sequel to Forgive my Fins by Terra Lynn Childs. The first book had a striking cover and the second book is just as eye catching. I'm ordering Forgive My Fins as we speak as I've always wanted to read this so no doubt I'll be adding the sequel to the wish list. This will be published in the US by Katherine Tegen books in 2011.

The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting drew rave reviews and this is the cover to the follow up novel, Desires of the Dead. I'm really ashamed to say that I've had The Body Finder for a long time now and have still not read it. I'm moving it up the TBR pile though. I love this cover as it's so pretty! Desires of the Dead is published in the US by HarperCollins on 1st March, 2011.

I've been waiting for this cover reveal for a while now, Blood Magic is the debut novel from a lovely lady called Tessa Gratton. I think the cover is beautiful and this has been on the wish list for a while now. This is being published both in the US and the UK by Random House Publishing on April 26th, 2011.

Last but not least is Shadowspell by Jenna Black, which is the sequel to GlimmerGlass. I've had GlimmerGlass since May but haven't read it yet. I have to say though that the covers in this series are absolutely gorgeous and I'd buy them for that alone!! Definitely going on the wish list. This will be published in the US by St. Martins Press on 4th January, 2011.


  1. Gorgeousness! I especially love the cover for Possession. Bufferflies are always a winner with me but that's something really unusually and striking. I adore it.

  2. I'm really a fan of all those covers, I need to read the prequels of most of them *sigh*
    POSSESSION, I agree, is a WIN WIN WIN!!!
    The BLOOD MAGIC cover is very gorgeous as well, love the birds!
    Can't wait for Maggie's new cover tomorrow :)

  3. I cannot wait for Possession! It's been on my to-be-read pile for a couple weeks now and when I saw the new cover I almost died! It's gorgeous! :)

  4. Oh, I want to get my hands on Fins Are Forever!

  5. I can't believe it's taken me so long to find your blog- it's amazing!
    I'm ashamed to say I still haven't read The Body Finder, but the cover to it's sequel is beautiful!

  6. Ooh, pretty... I just got Glimmerglass in the post and I love the cover, but wow for Shadowspell. Very magic-y feeling to it. Desired of the Dead is very eye-catching (yet simple too), and I love Fins are Forever!

  7. These look great. I love Blood Magic and Shadowspell. x

  8. Oooh, I am jealous. Especially of Shadow Spell and Possession - the stag and the butterfly images are so poetic. *WANTS*

  9. How did I miss this? Wait, don't answer that... Thanks for putting up my cover and saying you want to read POSSESSION! I hope you like it. :)
