Watery Pretties


I feel a bit like I'm drowning looking at these three watery covers. But I'm kind of drawn to them as well. I love the font on New Girl and the other two are creepy and grand in their own way. I've never read anything by any of these authors. All three due are out in the first half of next year, and I'm interested to find out more.


When the Sea is Rising Red by Cat Hellison
Eerie cover, no? And the contents sound fairly grim as well, but in a most intriguing way. Arranged marriages, fake deaths, vampires, magic from the ocean, and washing dishes in the slums. As Abed would say, "Cool. Cool, cool, cool, cool."
Due out February 28th.

New Girl by Paige Harbison
This one caught my eye because it's a contemporary retelling of Rebecca. I know! The mind boggles at the possibilities. Set at the prestigious Manderley Academy (lol) where the "new girl" is trying to fit in in a world where the name Becca Normandy is on everybody's lips. Awesome.
Due out January 31st.

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Emma is on vacation in Florida when a dangerous encounter with a shark results in the opening up of an entirely unknown world. An ocean kingdom and a prince in need of saving are suddenly at the forefront of Emma's mind. That and her hitherto unknown ability to communicate with fish. Count me in.
Due out May 22nd.

  3. A retelling of Rebecca? Count me in! In fact, that would fit perfectly for the one challenge I signed up for next year.

  4. I like these covers! They are so pretty. I've seen these covers a few times, but haven't really pay much attention to the stories. They all sound good. Great picks! Thank you for sharing!

  5. I read Rebecca on our family vacation to North Carolina and I could not put it down.....except to do some boogie boarding with my cool cousins, but oh wouldn't it be awesome if New Girl was even half as good. I'll cross my fingers. Happy Thanksgiving. We miss you all!

    Jenny, really? Awesome.

    Samual, my pleasure. It's funny the trends you see appearing.

    Liz, you read it that summer? That's so cool. That was such a great trip. I have fond memories of it and wish we could do something similar again. Hope your Thanksgiving is a good one. I always miss you.

    Jamie, hehe. I'm 2 for 2.

    Janice, they really are. Love the glowing tones on OF POSEIDON.

  9. The watery covers really are beautiful aren't they? I always envy artists who are able to create such beauty and make it as unique as possible given the glut in the market.

  10. I like the sound of Of Poseidon. Kinda like a female YA Percy Jackson, maybe?

    I have 'New Girl' and I probably I should read it ;)) I hope it is as good as the cover.

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin
