Covergasms♥ (6)

Covergasms♥ is an original Book♥Hooker feature that discusses all things cover related!

This Covergasms♥ post is going to focus on something uber-exciting: books not out yet. These special books have been selected by moi over the last little while, and have pretty much been added to my book list because of their beautiful covers. Also because the descriptions sound pretty freakin' amazing :)

The first two come out pretty soon: June 14th! Unfortunately we have to wait a little bit longer to devour the second ones. The last two both come out in October of this year.



1) Hourglass by Myra McEntire
          This cover has captivated and boggled my mind since I first viewed it a few months ago. I just cannot seem to wrap my mind around it's simplicity and puzzling beauty. It's so freaking trippy! Boasting a great plot as well, Hourglass has been on my reading list ever since I encountered it. It has a supernatural theme woven into a time travelling plot, which seems like a unique idea, and one that I would like to get my hands on. It also helps that some of my favourite blogs have given it rave reviews!

2) Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
          This cover is absolutely breathtaking! The colours contrast in a way that is sooo delicious. The photography renders me speechless with its simplicity and almost weightlessness. The font itself and the placement of the font are just perfection, and the ribbon adds just enough intrigue to make me want to buy this book, just at first glance. The book also seems to combine some of my favourite elements: mysterious murders, sisterly dynamics, and showcasing past and present events. This screams 'buy me' in the floating ethereal voice that the cover brings to my mind.

3) The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon
          Another stunner! I love the effect that this cover emits. The powerful thrusting of the girl in the front that seems to blend in to almost ink or paint at the bottom wins me over completely. I just know that this book will be dynamic from this cover, it just has to! The font is seemingly simple, but I adore the two-toned quality, and how it seems to take precedence on the cover, still letting the girl almost break through though, powerfully awakened. If that makes sense... Although the main selling point of this book is ambiguously supernatural, I still want to read it, since the description also mentions the setting to be in Ireland. And I love me some Europe :)

4) Don't Breathe a Word by Holly Cupala
          I actually first came across this cover on someone else's blog as a countdown widget, and although I had never heard of the book before (I usually don't put widgets on my site unless I am dying to read it) I felt myself inexplicably needing this book, just because of the cover. I kid you not. The combination of the yellow and the interesting font immediately stole my attention, and then the seemingly animated picture and sparkly orbs sealed the deal. I just love it. The plot of the book, a girl who escapes a life full of overbearing parents and an abusive boyfriend for a 'street family', seems equally dynamic. I definitely will be picking this up as soon as humanly possible!

Well there you have it. Four amazing reads, coming to bookstores near you. Or maybe you're lucky enough to have already acquired a copy? If so, let me know if they are as good as they sound, or better!

Happy reading--Cheers & Enjoy♥
