Cover Alerts: Infinityglass, The Dream Thieves and Across a Star-Swept Sea

Several more covers were revealed today and I wanted to share them with you. Check them out and let me know what you think below!

Infinityglass by Myra McEntire
The stakes have risen even higher in this third book in the Hourglass series. 
The Hourglass is a secret organization focused on the study of manipulating time, and its members — many of them teenagers -­have uncanny abilities to make time work for them in mysterious ways. Inherent in these powers is a responsibility to take great care, because altering one small moment can have devastating consequences for the past, present, and future. But some time trav­elers are not exactly honorable, and sometimes unsavory deals must be struck to maintain order. 
With the Infinityglass (central to understanding and harnessing the time gene) at large, the hunt is on to find it before someone else does. 
But the Hourglass has an advantage. Lily, who has the ability to locate anything lost, has determined that the Infinityglass isn't an object. It's a person. And the Hourglass must find him or her first. But where do you start searching for the very key to time when every second could be the last?
Infinityglass is out July 9th 2013 by EgmontUSA.

Gorgeous, am I right? This entire series has had awesome covers so I'm not surprised to see how interesting this one is. I think the pose is so poetic and beautiful. The only thing that is a little off to me is the red dress and teal background. Not one of my favorite color combos but it isn't enough to make me dislike it. I love!

Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund
Centuries after wars nearly destroyed civilization, the two islands of New Pacifica stand alone, a terraformed paradise where even the Reduction—the devastating brain disorder that sparked the wars—is a distant memory. Yet on the isle of Galatea, an uprising against the ruling aristocrats has turned deadly. The revolutionaries’ weapon is a drug that damages their enemies’ brains, and the only hope is rescue by a mysterious spy known as the Wild Poppy. 
On the neighboring island of Albion, no one suspects that the Wild Poppy is actually famously frivolous aristocrat Persis Blake. The teenager uses her shallow, socialite trappings to hide her true purpose: her gossipy flutternotes are encrypted plans, her pampered sea mink is genetically engineered for spying, and her well-publicized new romance with handsome Galatean medic Justen Helo… is her most dangerous mission ever. 
Though Persis is falling for Justen, she can’t risk showing him her true self, especially once she learns he’s hiding far more than simply his disenchantment with his country’s revolution and his undeniable attraction to the silly socialite he’s pretending to love. His darkest secret could plunge both islands into a new dark age, and Persis realizes that when it comes to Justen Helo, she’s not only risking her heart, she’s risking the world she’s sworn to protect. 
In this thrilling adventure inspired by The Scarlet Pimpernel, Diana Peterfreund creates an exquisitely rendered world where nothing is as it seems and two teens with very different pasts fight for a future only they dare to imagine.
Across a Star-Swept Sea is out October 15th 2013 by Balzer + Bray.

Holy cover love! I think this is my favorite cover I've seen this year. Everything from the water splashing up to the gorgeous dress to the light blonde hair makes this cover magical. It's ultra girly and beautiful for it. I'm in hearts and kisses with this one.

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
The second installment in the all-new series from the masterful, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!
The Dream Thieves is out September 17th 2013 by Scholastic Press.

Yup guys. I realize that summary is a whole lot to go on. I mean, how can they tell the entire plot in one sentence? Oh wait, they can't. But look at that cover. I'm not usually a fan of drawn covers but this one is epic. I love that the bird are being absorbed by/coming out of him. The only thing I wish is that the title of the novel was bigger than the author's name but other than that, this is all kinds of awesome!

So what do you guys think about these three epic cover reveals?


  1. Across a Star-Swept Sea looks so beautiful! Talk about book cover porn!

  2. I was never as in love with the Hourglass Trilogy covers as everyone else. However, I do really love the Infinityglass cover! Across a Star-Swept Sea also has a gorgeous cover, and title for that matter. :D



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!
