Come Hither Pretties


You guys, I'm just avidly excited about these three upcoming pretties. I need them now and I will not have them until October (in two cases) and next April in the other. Alas. Alack. Until then, I shall have to content myself with the odd gaze at these instances of the benevolence of the Cover Gods.

A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas
As you know. I love Sherry Thomas. Historicals, YA fantasy, you name it, she can do it. This time she's turning her hand to a gender-swapped Sherlock Holmes retelling. Charlotte Holmes takes the name of Sherlock Holmes in order to solve the mystery behind a trio of murders that have cast suspicion upon her sister and father. Say no more.
Due out October 18th

Spare and Found Parts by Sarah Maria Griffin
I'm sorry, but this cover, you guys. It's like my heart grew ten sizes the day I saw it. It is utterly perfect for a book about one lonely girl who has a heart that ticks and builds a robot companion. Set in a dystopian/steampunk post-epidemic city made up of people with biomechanical parts. Take my money.
Due out October 4th

Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer
What an elegant cover. It's been awhile since I've read a good Sleeping Beauty retelling, and I'm ready for a fresh take. Half sisters, one illegitimate and one legitimate. One tithed her sight, the other her touch and voice to the Faerie Queen. Then one drop of blood changes it all.
Due out April 11th (I know)

Magic Bites Collector's Edition

It must be mine. Kate's braid makes me happy. It's so Kate. As does Slayer. And the fact that she just looks so much more like Kate in general than the girl on the original cover of Magic Bites . That little "Includes First Time in Print Bonus Material" teaser doesn't hurt either. Not one bit.
