A Post of Pretty: New Covers

This week has been an insane week for cover reveals, with HarperTeen unleashing a torrent of stunning new designs for their Winter 2014 lineup, and because I'm such a huge fan of all things design-related I wanted to share some of them on the blog today. You can check out the full roundup over at Epic Reads HERE, but below are some of the ones I love most. Is it 2014 yet? *stares longingly at calendar*

Under the Never Sky #3
Veronica Rossi • January 28th, 2014


FROZEN
Taken #2
Erin Bowman • April 15th, 2014


Pivot Point #2
Kasie West • February 11th, 2014


Rosamund Hodge • January 28th, 2014


Newsoul #3
Jodi Meadows •  January 28th, 2014


EVERTRUE
Everneath #3
Brodi Ashton • January 21st, 2014


Mindee Arnett •  January 21st, 2014



And now for my three favorites on the list:

Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam • March 18th, 2014


From Goodreads:

Soon, Elusion® will change the world and life as we know it.

A new technology called Elusion is sweeping the country. An app, visor and wristband will virtually transport you to an exotic destination where adventure can be pursued without the complications—or consequences—of real life.

Regan is an Elusion insider. Or at least she used to be. Her father invented the program, and her best friend, Patrick, heir to the tech giant Orexis, is about to release it nationwide. But ever since her father’s unexpected death, Regan can’t bear to Escape, especially since waking up from the dream means crashing back to her grim reality.

Still, when there are rumors of trouble in Elusion—accusations that it’s addictive and dangerous— Regan is determined to defend it. But the critics of Elusion come from surprising sources, including Josh, the handsome skeptic with his own personal stakes. As Regan investigates the claims, she discovers a disturbing web of secrets. She will soon have to choose between love and loyalty…a decision that will affect the lives of millions.

Suspense, thrills, and romance fuel this near-future story about the seductive nature of a perfect virtual world, and how far one girl will go to uncover the truth behind the illusions.


Natalie Whipple • April 1st, 2014


From Natalie Whipple's Blog:

They say a witch lives in the old house under the bridge . . .
 

What the residents of Willow’s End don’t know is that there are two witches living in the crumbling old house draped in ivy. Ancient, toothless Dorothea Hemlock . . . and her seventeen-year-old granddaughter, Josephine.


Jo has always managed to keep her magical life separate from her normal one. But now the mysterious Curse that killed her mother—and so many Hemlock witches before her—has returned. Soon Jo realizes that the life she’s fought to keep hidden could destroy the one she’s worked so hard to protect.

Ryan Graudin • February 11th, 2014


From Goodreads:

Emrys—a fiery, red-headed Fae—always embraced her life in the Highlands, far from the city’s draining technology, until she’s sent to London to rejoin the Faery Guard. But this isn’t any normal assignment—she’s sent to guard Prince Richard: Britain’s notorious, partying bad boy and soon-to-be King. The prince’s careless ways and royal blood make him the irresistible for the dark spirits that feed on mortals. Sweet, disheveled, and alive with adventure—Richard is one charge who will put Emrys’s magic and heart to the test.

When an ancient force begins preying on the monarchy, Emrys must hunt through the London’s magical underworld, facing down Banshees, Black Dogs and Green Women to find the one who threatens Richard’s life. In this chaos of dark magic, palace murders and paparazzi, Emrys finds herself facing an impossible choice. For despite all her powers, Emrys has discovered a force that burns brighter than magic: love.



What do you guys think? Which is your favorite?

  1. Look at all that beauty! Love the cover for Infinite! Stunning! I haven't started the Everneath series, but all that underworld fumes on the cover really makes me want to check it out.

  2. Lots of pretty covers, to be sure! My particular favorite though is Avalon. Why is Jan 2014 so far away?!

    1. I don't know, but I wish these were all coming out in July so I could have them in my hands:) I'm really excited for Avalon too:)

  3. I can't believe that I haven't seen the cover of the Frozen before. It looks great! I have to read Taken asap. Also the covers of Infinite and Evertrue are amazing. Great post Jenny :)

    1. I love the covers for the Taken books - so pretty! I just want all of these on my shelf right this minute.

  4. I think THE PROMISE OF AMAZING by Robin Constantine was cute, too. Anyhow, I like the ones you chose. However, Into the Still Blue kinda disappointed me since it's like the first two cover mixed together, but I understand why it's necessary. I like Frozen's cover so much. I'm so bummed that people hated and disliked Taken so much, because I think the covers are sooooo very pretty. I kinda liked Pivot Point's cover a little better as well and if I had to choose my favorite cover of Everneath, Evertrue wouldn't be it. Infinite is gorgeous though as is House of Ivy and Sorrow. All in all, I like all of them, but maybe it'll just take time to get used to the ones that are just 'like' for me, not 'love' :)

    1. The peach background is the only thing I don't really care for on Evertrue. Everneath had an ivory background that I liked better, but I love the smoke and the dress:) House of Ivy and Sorry is my absolute favorite. It's just so graphic and different:)

  5. Oh boy, there are still so many books from 2013 (and 2012) I need to buy and it looks like 2014 is going to be as awesome! :)

  8. Jenny, I can't believe you're tempting me with books that are coming out in 2014!!!!! How can I possible wait for their releases :P Into the Still Blue and Frozen are such striking covers but All that Glows and Elusion are my favourites too!

  9. Eeep! Into the Still Blue and Evertrue! I seriously can't wait for the both of them. Elusion's cover is gorgeous too although the idea seems a little like the one in Under the Never Sky. Still maybe it could be totally different. Thanks for sharing this, Jenny. These lovely covers were definitely awesome eye-candies.

  16. So many books I'm looking forward to, especially Into the Still Blue and Ever True. My favourite cover is that of All That Glows but I love the dress of the model portraying Becks.

  17. I think House of Ivy and Sorrow is my favorite but Cruel Beauty is so interesting with it being part staircase and part flower. However it's Into the Still Blue that I'm most looking forward to reading! :)

  27. INTO THE STILL BLUE is one I would get into a fight to get my hands on. Also can't wait for INFINITE and EVERTRUE. CRUEL BEAUTY is getting me all excited as well!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Eek, so many pretties! I already had Elusion on my wish list, but I hadn't heard of House of Ivy & Sorrow and All That Glows before, they sound awesome! Thanks for sharing and putting all these beauties on my radar! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. INTO THE STILL BLUE!!! *tries to pull book out of computer screen* Me want! I'm so excited for that book. I still can't quite believe what happened I'm the last book with Liv and all. I think it was way better than most 2nd books I'm a series tend to be. It was def not a transition book. I hope the 3rd Is everything and more. :)

  30. cruel beauty and frozen and avalon are the ones that got my attention the most. so many awesome covers, though.

    (also, i had no idea half of these books were even coming out!)
