It's February and the color red is everywhere, in windows, on cookies, and threading through the most lovely of upcoming book covers. These three. They are so beautiful, they would grace any shelf. Two of these authors are new to me, and I'm really looking forward to getting to know their work.
The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore
This one sounds almost like a magical realism take on Romeo & Juliet, and I am down with that, people. The two families are the Palomas and the Corbeaus. They operate rival traveling performance troupes. There's a touch of black magic. Then a Corbeau boy saves a Paloma girl's life, and well . . .
Due out September 15th
Sword by Amy Bai
Thanks to Li for the heads up on this one! Kyali is the only sword-wielding girl in the realm. Charged with the care of the heir to the throne, her life falls apart when the ancient nursery rhymes of her people begin to manifest themselves in reality. It sounds all epic and doomed and whatnot. That cover though.
Due out today!
Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead
I really cannot stress to you enough how perfect a book Stead's When You Reach Me is. I read it last year and have yet to review it because feelings. But. This new one looks fabulous. Three girls. Best friends. Seventh grade. Valentine's Day is involved. Ugh. Already I have shivers.
Due out August 4th
That SWORD cover is fantastic, isn't it? Fingers crossed the inside lives up to the outside...ReplyDelete
The Rebecca Stead sounds really good. I'll have to look up her previous books - WHEN YOU REACH ME, huh?
I know. Fingers definitely crossed.ReplyDelete
And, yes. WHEN YOU REACH ME. So, so lovely.
wow. you always present the most eye-catching and amazing covers. these all work for me. I definitely appreciate covers that dont just come from a stock image but have been crafted and illustrated/created to tell that books story.ReplyDelete
