Cover Reveal: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Fans of Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles series know that Cyber Monday isn't just a big online shopping day after Thanksgiving. It's also an annual opportunity for Macmillan to announce some cool TLC-related news or do a big giveaway for some exclusive swag. ICYMI, this year's big news was that the main four titles in TLC are getting new covers! That's right, lunartics, Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter (not Fairest or Stars Above though) have brand new illustrated and colorful covers! Check them out!

But that's not all! Each book is ALSO getting a specially designed stepback, which is publisher speak for the page behind the cover. Literally just learned that last week. See the contrasting stripe of color on the right edge of each cover? That page will be a second gorgeously illustrated new piece of TLC art! You may have seen the setback reveals for Cinder and Scarlet earlier this week, and today, I have the pleasure of showing off the new stepback illustration for my girl Cress. Shout out to all my fellow Cresswell shippers out there! I hope you love this art as much as I do! And keep an eye out tomorrow for the Winter reveal!

With the warmth, wit, intimate friendships, and heart-melting romance she brings to all her books, Emma Mills crafts a story about believing in yourself, owning your mistakes, and trusting in human connection in Lucky Caller.

When Nina decides to take a radio broadcasting class her senior year, she expects it to be a walk in the park. Instead, it’s a complete disaster.

The members of Nina's haphazardly formed radio team have approximately nothing in common. And to maximize the awkwardness her group includes Jamie, a childhood friend she'd hoped to basically avoid for the rest of her life.

The show is a mess, internet rumors threaten to bring the wrath of two fandoms down on their heads, and to top it all off Nina's family is on the brink of some major upheaval.

Everything feels like it's spiraling out of control―but maybe control is overrated?
