Cover Envy (23): The Sharp Time, Fury and There You'll Find Me

It's that time of week again! I'm showing another couple of covers that make me green with envy and stuck sitting on my hands until the novels they cover come out.

I hope you enjoy!
The Sharp Time by Mary O'Connell- I love the colors in this cover. The warm yellow glow of the girl's skin coupled with the green blue of outside and the red of her lips and nails. It reminds me of an old photograph. I'm instantly intrigued.

From Goodreads:

Sandinista Jones is a high school senior with a punk rock name and a broken heart. The death of her single mother has left Sandinista alone in the world, subject to the random vulnerability of everyday life. When the school system lets her down, her grief and instability intensify, and she ponders a violent act of revenge. 

Still, in the midst of her crisis, she gets a job at The Pale Circus, a funky vintage clothing shop, and finds friendship and camaraderie with her coworker, a boy struggling with his own secrets. 
Even as Sandinista sees the failures of those with power and authority, she's offered the chance to survive through the redemptive power of friendship. Now she must choose between faith and forgiveness or violence and vengeance.
The Sharp Time cones out November 8, 2011 to Delacorte.

 Fury by Elizabeth Miles- Holy moly, this cover is gorgeous. The firey long hair cascading down the length of the cover, the mysterious look on the model's face, the pale white dress to match her skin and the accent of the green bow. I love how the mustard yellow font clashes with her red hair and the font itself is gorgeous.

From Goodreads:
In book one of the Fury trilogy, Emily Winters and Chase Singer discover that a little guilt isn’t the only consequence of doing wrong. After Emily hooks up with her best friend’s boyfriend and Chase’s secret harassment of a social outcast spirals out of control, three mysterious Furies—paranormal creatures that often assume the form of beautiful female cousins—come to town to make sure that Emily and Chase get what they deserve. Not everyone will survive—and those who do will discover there are worse punishments than death. But when Emily befriends outcast Drea and learns more about who and what the Furies really are, she becomes resolved above all to take them down and stop their plans. Little does Emily know, by confronting the Furies, she could become inextricably bound to them for life.
Fury comes out September 6, 2011 from Simon Pulse.

There You'll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones- This cover has got adorable written all over it. I smile just looking at the two teens holding hands. I love the female model's outfit. The combo of clover green boots and floral farm dress just scream Ireland to me. 

From Goodreads:

In a small cottage house in rural Ireland, Finley discovers she can no longer outrun the past.
When Finley travels to Ireland as a foreign exchange student, she hopes to create a new identity and get some answers from the God who took her brother away and seems to have left her high and dry.
But from the moment she boards the plane and sits by Beckett Rush, teen star of the hottest vampire flicks, nothing goes according to Finley's plan.
When she gets too close to Beckett, a classmate goes on a mission to make sure Finley packs her bags, departs Ireland-and leaves Beckett alone.
Finley feels the pressure all around. As things start to fall apart, she begins to rely on a not-so-healthy method of taking control of her life.
Finley tries to balance it all-disasters on the set of Beckett's new movie, the demands of school, and her growing romance with one actor who is not what he seems. Yet Finley is also not who she portrays to Beckett and her friends.
For the first time in her life, Finley must get honest with herself to get right with God.
There You'll Find Me is out October 4, 2011 to Thomas Nelson.

So what do you think of these covers?


  1. I'm not a fan of the cover for Fury, but the ones for The Sharp Time and There You'll Find Me are gorgeous :)

  2. I like Fury's cover and There You'll Find Me's is very cute but it was A Sharp Time's synopsis that's got me intrigued!


Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
