Cover Reveals (3)


I was blown away by some of the stunning (and creepy) covers released by authors this week! If you've seen an awesome cover then make sure you share in the comments because I would really love to take a look.
Insomnia (The Night Walkers, #1)
Release Date: June 8, 2013
It’s been four years since I slept, and I suspect it is killing me.

Instead of sleeping, Parker Chipp enters the dream of the last person he’s had eye contact with. He spends his nights crushed by other people’s fear and pain, by their disturbing secrets—and Parker can never have dreams of his own. The severe exhaustion is crippling him. If nothing changes, Parker could soon be facing psychosis and even death.

Then he meets Mia. Her dreams, calm and beautifully uncomplicated, allow him blissful rest that is utterly addictive. Parker starts going to bizarre lengths to catch Mia’s eye every day. Everyone at school thinks he’s gone over the edge, even his best friend. And when Mia is threatened by a true stalker, everyone thinks it’s Parker.

Suffering blackouts, Parker begins to wonder if he is turning into someone dangerous. What if the monster stalking Mia is him after all?

Ah, crap! That is scary! I love the sound of this book and I can not wait to check it out! Come on, it looks like a creepy read.
Release Date: June 6, 2013
She must rise, or they will fall ...Helen's powers are increasing--and so is the distance between her and her mortal friends. To make matters worse, the Oracle reveals that a dangerous traitor is lurking among them, and all fingers point to Orion. Still unsure whether she loves him or Lucas, Helen is forced to make a terrifying decision, or risk all-out war. The final book in this heart-stopping trilogy.

I can't believe this is the last book in the Starcrossed trilogy! I have loved this trilogy from the beginning and heart-broken that it's so close to the end. This is the UK cover by the way. I revealed the US cover HERE!
Dance of the Red Death (Masque of the Red Death, #2)
Release Date: April 23, 2013
Araby Worth’s city is being torn apart by death, disease, and corrupt forces wanting to claim it for their own. She has lost her home. Her best friend is dying. Her mother has been kidnapped. The boy who made her feel something again has betrayed her. And her father may be a murderer.

But Araby has found herself.
Despite the death and destruction all around her, she will fight for herself, for her friends, for her city. Her rebellion will take her, finally, to the mad prince’s palace, for the decadent –and sinister—masked ball. It could be a trap. It could be the end of them all. Or it could be the moment that Araby becomes the kind of hero she never dreamed she could be.

My review of the first book, Masque of the Red Death, will be published in a few weeks! I like this cover but I'm not crazy about it. I don't understand why it's purple when the title is "Dance of the RED Death", I'm just confused.

Towering by Alex Flinn
Release Date:
May 14, 2013

At first, I merely saw his face, his hands on the window ledge. Then, his whole body as he swung himself through the window. Only I could not see what he swung on.
Until, one day, I told my dream self to look down. And it was then that I saw. He had climbed on a rope. I knew without asking that the rope had been one of my own tying.

Rachel is trapped in a tower, held hostage by a woman she’s always called Mama. Her golden hair is growing rapidly, and to pass the time, she watches the snow fall and sings songs from her childhood, hoping someone, anyone, will hear her. 

Wyatt needs time to reflect or, better yet, forget about what happened to his best friend, Tyler. That’s why he’s been shipped off to the Adirondacks in the dead of winter to live with the oldest lady in town. Either that, or no one he knows ever wants to see him again.

Dani disappeared seventeen years ago without a trace, but she left behind a journal that’s never been read, not even by her overbearing mother…until now. 

I've heard that Alex Flinn is a great fairytale re-teller so I shall be checking out his other books before this one. That cover is so pretty... almost haunting.

I hope you liked those covers! Leave a comment telling me which you hate and which you love. Last weeks criticising comments were very funny, so you know, keep 'em coming. (;

Have a great week,
Sam :D
