I'm going to start doing this in batches, rather than one at a time. Let's see how this goes =)

Lauren DeStefano revealed the cover art for Fever, book two in the Chemical Garden trilogy. Check it out:

Coming February 21, 2012!

Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion. But danger is never far behind.

Running away brings Rhine and Gabriel right into a trap, in the form of a twisted carnival whose ringmistress keeps watch over a menagerie of girls. Just as Rhine uncovers what plans await her, her fortune turns again. With Gabriel at her side, Rhine travels through an environment as grim as the one she left a year ago―surroundings that mirror her own feelings of fear and hopelessness.

The Two are determined to get to Manhattan, to relative safety with Rhine's twin brother, Rowan. But the road there is long and perilous―and in a world where young woman only live to age twenty and young men die at twenty-five, time is precious. Worse still, they can't seem to elude Rhine's father-in-law, Vaughn, who is determined to bring Rhine back to the mansion… by any means necessary.

In this sequel to Lauren DeStefano's harrowing Wither, Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price―now that she has more to lose than ever.

Jessica Spotswood revealed the cover for her debut novel Born Wicked -- which I am crazy excited for. Check it out:

Coming February 7, 2012!

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?

Zoraida Córdova recently revealed the spectacular cover for her debut novel The Vicious Deep. Check it out:

Coming March 2012!

Set against the backdrop of a Coney Island summer comes The Vicious Deep, the story of sixteen year old Tristan Hart whose life is turned upside down when the mermaids make an unscheduled return to land in search of their new king. 

When a sudden storm pulls Tristan from lifeguard duty into a deadly riptide, he discovers what he really is—a prince of the Sea Court. Turns out, his girlfriend hopping and talents as a swimmer aren’t caused by his teenage prime hormones after all. 

In this modern Arthurian tale with a twist, when all a guy wants to do is get The Girl and enjoy the freak show that is a Coney Island summer, Tristan has to fight for his life, the lives of his friends, and his humanity, if he still wants it, as he’s caught in a race for a throne that is as ancient as the gods.

There are also a few new covers floating around the interwebz that haven't really been "announced," but I'm excited for the books and want to give a shoutout to the covers.

Check out the cover for Anna Davies' debut novel, Wrecked:

Coming May 1, 2012!

Miranda has lived on Whym Island since the death of her parents. She has taken comfort in its seclusion and in the folklore that claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and its surrounding waters. It's easier to believe things are out of her control.

But when a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy that haunts her dreams. As the guilt of the accident consumes her, she finds refuge in her late night swims. Until she meets Christian, a boy who seems so familiar, but won't tell her where he is from and why they can only meet at the beach. As Miranda falls for Christian and begins to put the accident behind her, she discovers that there are secrets that Christian is keeping to protect her that may only end up bringing her nothing but harm.

Check out the cover for Jess Rothenberg's debut novel, The Catastrophic History of You and Me:

Coming January 17, 2012!

BRIE'S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn't love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally.

But now that she's D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there's Patrick, Brie's mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after.

With Patrick's help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she's ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces?

"Inventive, gorgeous, funny and yes . . . heartbreaking. You will absolutely love this book." — Lauren Oliver, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall and Delirium.

Check out the cover for Dragonswood, the companion novel to Janet Lee Carey's Dragon's Keep:

Coming January 5, 2012!

Wilde Island is in an uproar after the recent death of its king. The uneasy pact between dragons, fairies, and humans is fraying, and a bloodthirsty witch hunter with a hidden agenda whips villages into frenzies with wild accusations. Tess, a blacksmith’s daughter from a tiny hamlet near the mysterious Dragonswood, finds herself caught in the crosshairs of fate when she is accused of witchery and has to flee for her life along with her two best friends.

Not even Tess’s power to see the future can help the girls as they set off on their desperate journey, but she keeps having visions of a man wielding a sword. And when she finally meets him, Tess has no idea how to handle the magnetic attraction she feels for him, or the elusive call she hears from the heart of the Dragonswood.

In this epic romance, an ancient prophecy comes true in a way neither dragon, fairy, nor human would have predicted.

And finally, the incredibly awesome Kiersten White announced the title for the third and final book in the Paranormalcy trilogy (due out in 2012):


I LOVE that title. It's kind of poetic, in a way. And, as Kiersten pointed out, ironic for the last book in a series. I looooved both Paranormalcy and Supernaturally, and am already jonesing for Endlessly. How about you? Love the title too?

So, which cover is your favorite? If I HAD to pick, I think I'd have to say The Vicious Deep, though Fever is a close second. It's so striking! And kind of creepy O_O (in a good way).

I'm disappointed in WRECKED and FEVER's covers. I do, however, love A Million Sun's cover. Beautiful!

So many great covers and books coming out. Born Wicked sounds amazing, just like my kind of book.

Cara said...

I adore the FEVER cover. everyone else seems to hate it, but from the synopsis it seems to definitely fit the book while still looking connected to the first cover. also, the BORN WICKED cover is completely gorgeous. love love love.

All are wonderful and new covers to me. But I think Dragonwood caught my eye with the title and the cover. Thanks for sharing all these. :)

The cover for 'The Catastrophic History of You and Me' is pretty cool. I mean I guess it's almost like a typical cover and then the few differences make it so much more interesting!
