Top 10 Covers to Look For!

The Forgotten Locket
Hourglass 3/Lisa Mangum/Shadow Mountain
May 30, 2011
Thoughts: I think, if I had to choose a favorite covers series, it would be this one - the Hourglass series. The Hourglass Door, The Golden Spiral and now The Forgotten Locket are so consistent and match so well! Can't wait till I get my hands on this one!

Once Every Never
Lesley Livingston/Harper
July 1, 2011*
Thoughts: This cover reminds me of a movie poster for some reason: really cool/ethereal looking, with the blue, the darker colors, and the bright pink. I like it! Looking at the cover, it doesn't seem to preview much of what's written in the synopsis, but it's a cover that's inviting and fun to look at, nonetheless, so I bet it'll attract lots of attention.

The Power of Six
Lorien Legacies 2/Pittacus Lore/Harper Teen
August 23, 2011
Thoughts: I thought I Am Number Four had a really cool cover design, and I'm not going to lie, I was kind of disappointed to see this one. It's simplicity belies its identity as the follow-up to a highly successful debut. I was expecting the cover to be a bit flashier, I guess.

Paranormalcy 2/Kiersten White/Harper Teen
August 30, 2011
Thoughts: I was so glad to see that they used the same model from Paranormalcy again! Loving the consistency. And the brown-red-burn orange hues are visually stimulating - off the top of my head I can't think of any other cover that uses similar colors.

Firelight 2/Sophie Jordan/Harper Teen
September 6, 2011
Thoughts: It looks like they used the same model for this sequel story, too. If that's the case, then I kind of like her better blonde! :D

So Silver Bright
Theatre Iluminata 3/Lisa Mantchev/Fiewel & Friends
September 13, 2011
Thoughts: The Theatre Iluminata covers have been consistently eye-appealing, and I absolutely love the dress Bertie's wearing, and the inclusion of the fairies! I think, though, that Perchance to Dream is my favorite of the series covers, mainly because it has Ariel on it! :)

Leviathan 3/Scott Westerfeld/Simon Pulse
September 20, 2011
Thoughts: Cool premise, and the covers definitely attract attention. And this is in half-jest, but the new cover designs for this series have left me a little baffled, cause I still can't figure out - on any of them - who's a boy and who's a girl. Lol. This one's easier to tell, though.

In the Forests of the Night
Goblin Wars 2/Kersten Hamilton/Clarion, Harcourt
October 3, 2011
Thoughts: Tyger had such a pretty green appeal, so the majority-blue cover here looks cool. Have to admit, though, the yellow eyes at the bottom are a little creepy!

Matched 2/Ally Condie/Penguin
November 1, 2011
Thoughts: One of the shards from the shattered bubble is humorously close to the model's fist, so it kind of looks like she's giving readers the finger. Heehee.

The Space Between
Brenna Yovanoff/Razorbill, Penguin
No release date
Thoughts: It's hard to top the eerily beautiful artistry of The Replacement, Yovanoff's other book, but this one looks cool, too! The cover makes the book look very inviting. I'm definitely interested :)
