Cover Love 3

Every so often, I'm going to do a large picture post with shiny new covers. They won't be every cover recently revealed, just some of my favorites or particularly "big" books. Let me know which you like or are particularly excited about!

I feel it my duty as an official member of the Rock Stars to share this with you, but I honestly just adore this cover! Camp Boyfriend was a fantastic summer read for me this year, and I can't wait to read what comes next for these crazy campers!

Alex has big plans for camp this year, starting with making it the best summer ever. Having fun and breaking some rules will get her the payback she wants against her parents and her ex-boyfriend. Because of his disgusting texts, she's headed to a super strict all-girls school in the fall. Then she meets Javier and revenge doesn't seem nearly as important as getting to know the troubled loner determined to keep a low profile at camp. But Alex's trouble-magnet personality and Javier's need to stay in the background don't mix nearly as well as their irresistible chemistry. With her home life eroding under her feet and her last year of summer camp speeding to a close, Alex wants to make her mark on the world and squeeze every bit of fun out of her time with Javier. Too bad her old plans for revenge turn back on her just in time to ruin everything. Will she lose Javier too?

And one of the other series for which I'm a street team member released its cover this week too! *drools*

The Warrior

Entangled Teen

War between heaven and hell is coming, but Dante Walker makes it look damn good.

Dante’s girlfriend, Charlie, is fated to save the world. And Aspen, the girl who feels like a sister, is an ordained soldier. In order to help both fulfill their destiny and win the war, Dante must complete liberator training at the Hive, rescue Aspen from hell, and uncover a message hidden on an ancient scroll.

Dante is built for battle, but even he can’t handle the nightmares where spiders crawl from Aspen’s eyes, or the look on Charlie’s face that foretells of devastation. To make matters worse, the enemy seizes every opportunity to break inside the Hive and cripple the liberators. But the day of reckoning is fast approaching, and to stand victorious, Dante will have to embrace something inside himself he never has before—faith.


I just read The Program, and it was crazy good. I can't wait to get my hands on The Treatment, which, by the way, is up on Edelweiss if you're interested.

The Treatment

How do you stop an epidemic?

Sloane and James are on the run after barely surviving the suicide epidemic and The Program. But they’re not out of danger. Huge pieces of their memories are still missing, and although Sloane and James have found their way back to each other, The Program isn’t ready to let them go.

Escaping with a group of troubled rebels, Sloane and James will have to figure out who they can trust, and how to take down The Program. But for as far as they’ve come, there’s still a lot Sloane and James can’t remember. The key to unlocking their past lies with the Treatment—a pill that can bring back forgotten memories, but at a high cost. And there’s only one dose.

Ultimately when the stakes are at their highest, can Sloane and James survive the many lies and secrets surrounding them, or will The Program claim them in the end?


Of Neptune

Feiwel & Friends

So far, no summary is available for Of Neptune, but it is the third book of the Syrena Legacy trilogy, the sequel to Of Triton and Of Poseidon. I have not read this series yet, but I am assured by several friends and bookstore employees that it's incredible. Sold!


This next one sounds super original and awesome, and I'm really excited to read it!

The Break-Up Artist

Harlequin Teen

Some sixteen-year-olds babysit for extra cash. Some work at the Gap. Becca Williamson breaks up couples. 

After watching her sister get left at the altar, Becca knows the true damage that comes when people utter the dreaded L-word. For just $100 via paypal, she can trick and manipulate any couple into smithereens. With relationship zombies overrunning her school, and treating single girls like second class citizens, business is unfortunately booming. Even her best friend Val has resorted to outright lies to snag a boyfriend.

One night, she receives a mysterious offer to break up the homecoming king and queen, the one zombie couple to rule them all: Steve and Huxley. They are a JFK and Jackie O in training, masters of sweeping faux-mantic gestures, but if Becca can split them up, then school will be safe again for singletons. To succeed, she'll have to plan her most elaborate scheme to date and wiggle her way back into her former BFF Huxley’s life – not to mention start a few rumors, sabotage some cell phones, break into a car, and fend off the inappropriate feelings she’s having about Val’s new boyfriend. All while avoiding a past victim out to expose her true identity.

No one said being the Break-Up Artist was easy.


Finally, the rest of this edition of Cover Love goes to some new Harper Collins titles. Last week's Epic Reads Tea Time was all about covers, and I wanted to share some of my favorites from that with you.

I haven't read Arclight yet, even though I've had it checked out from the library for AGES, but I love how this cover looks like the negative to a photograph. Also, it somehow manages to be white and colorful all at the same time, and I like that. Lovely!

Marina thought that she had solved all of the Arclight’s mysteries. She had found her own history—that she was one of the Fade, that she never should have been human. She knows that the Fade who surround the Arclight don’t want to be the humans' enemies at all. She knows that the leader of those inside the Arc, Honoria Whit, never told the whole truth. But there is so much more that Marina is just discovering. There are more survivors out there. Only Marina—and her friends, all of whom have connections to the Fade they'd never known about—can lead her people to them. But there are also darker dangers, things that even the Fade fear. And Marina slowly realizes she may never have been “cured,” after all. The sequel to Arclight, Meridian is an intense, action-packed page-turner about the lines we draw between right and wrong, light and dark . . . and the way nothing is ever that black and white.


This book only has a one-sentence summary, but it's a good one. When combined with a cover as adorable as this, you can be sure it's one I will love.

Guy in Real Life

An achingly real and profoundly moving love story about two Minnesota teens whose lives become intertwined through role playing games.


Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! WANT.

On the Fence
Kasie West
July 1, 2014

For sixteen-year-old Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, being raised by a single dad and three older brothers has its perks. She can out-run, out-score, and outwit every boy she knows--including her long-time neighbor, and honorary fourth brother, Braden.

But when it comes to being a girl, Charlie doesn't know the first thing about anything. So when she starts working at a chi-chi boutique to pay off a speeding ticket, she finds herself in a strange new world of makeup, lacy skirts, and bedazzlers. Even stranger, she's spending time with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pick-up game.

To cope with the stress of faking her way through this new reality, Charlie seeks late night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with Braden by the fence that separates them. But their Fence Chats can't solve Charlie's biggest problem: she's falling for Braden. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.


First, this cover just pulled me in. I instantly wanted to know what it was about. Now that I know, I think this is going to be an important book, just really huge and socially impactful. Really excited to read it!

Say What You Will
Cammie McGovern
June 1, 2014

I want someone who will talk to me honestly about things. You're the only person who ever has. Maybe you don't know this, but when you're disabled almost no one tells you the truth. They feel too awkward because the truth seems too sad, I guess. You were very brave to walk up to the crippled girl and say, essentially, wipe that sunny expression off your face and look at reality. That's what I want you to do next year. Tell me the truth. That's all.

Amy and Matthew didn't know each other, really. They weren't friends. Matthew remembered her, sure, but he remembered a lot of people from elementary school that he wasn't friends with now.

Matthew never planned to tell Amy what he thought of her cheerful facade, but after he does, Amy realizes she needs someone like him in her life.

As they begin to spend more time with each other, Amy learns that Matthew has his own secrets and she decides to try to help him in the same way he's helped her. And when what started out as a friendship turns into something neither of them expected, they realize that they tell each other everything—except the one thing that matters most.

Aprilynne Pike is a trooper. I have absolutely no idea how she finds the time to be a wife, a mom, and a writer who manages to publish several books a year covering vastly different stories and characters across the spectrum of fiction. I am in awe.

Sleep No More
Aprilynne Pike
April 29, 2014

Charlotte Westing is an Oracle. For all the good that does her. These days, instead of using their powers, the Oracles fight them. And Charlotte knows the price of breaking the rules: she sees it every day in her mother's wheelchair and the absence of her father. But when a vision of a classmate's death overcomes her defenses, Charlotte is torn. Follow the rules? Or risk everything--even her sanity--to fight the serial killer who has set up residence in her town.
