Cover Alerts!

There are several new covers around the web that you need to know about. Make sure to check out these awesome new cover reveals!

The Holders by Julianna Holders
17-year-old Becca spent her whole life protecting her brother from, well, everything. The abandonment of their father, the so called 'experts' who insist that voices in his head are unnatural and must be dealt with, and the constant threat of being taken away to some hospital and studied like an animal. When two representatives appear claiming to have the answers to Ryland's perceived problem, Becca doesn't buy it for one second. That is until they seem to know things about Ryland and about Becca and Ryland's family, that forces Becca to concede that there may be more to these people than meets the eye. Though still highly skeptical, Becca agrees to do what's best for Ryland. 
What they find at St. Brigid's is a world beyond their imagination. Little by little they piece together the information of their family's heritage, their estranged Father, and the legend of the Holder race that decrees Ryland is the one they've been waiting for. However, they are all--especially Becca--in for a surprise that will change what they thought they knew about themselves and their kind. 
She meets Alex, a Holder who is fiercely loyal to their race, and for some reason, Becca and Ryland. There's an attraction between Becca and Alex that can't be denied, but her true nature seems destined to keep them apart. However, certain destinies may not be as clear cut as everyone has always believed them to be. 
Becca is lost, but found at the same time. Can she bring herself to leave Ryland now that he's settled and can clearly see his future? Will she be able to put the the feelings she has for Alex aside and head back to the US? And can Becca and Ryland ever forgive their father for what he's done?
The Holders is out March 2013 by Strange Chemistry.

This cover doesn't make me need the book right now. I wish it did but it just isn't as interesting as it could be. I do like the detail that went into the amulet though. I'm not sure about the mix of that lime green and dark red background.What are your thoughts?

Starglass by Phoebe North
My darling daughter, 
Know that I never would have left the Earth if it hadn't already been doomed. . . 
The generation ship Asherah coasts through space, bound for a planet its passengers have never even seen. On the eve of their arrival, sixteen-year-old botanist Terra discovers that her orderly society has fractured. Walking home one night through the long-abandoned engine rooms, she witnesses the murder of an innocent man. Now, called on by the Children of Abel, a group of rebels intent on destroying the High Council, Terra must prove her mettle--assassinate the ship's rising captain. In order to carry out her task, Terra must betray her father, deceive her teacher, and challenge everything the Council has ever taught her was true.

The rebels think that Terra has nothing left to lose. But when she falls for Silvan Rafferty, the boy that she's meant to kill, Terra learns that "doing your duty" isn't always as easy as it seems.
Starglass is out July 23rd 2013 by Simon and Schuster.

I'm never sure what to do with sci-fi covers. Things that haven't really been invented yet do pose a problem. As far as covers go, I think this one is pretty good. The deep purple and blue colors would catch my attention on the shelf and I'd have to grab this one!

If I Should Die by Amy Plum
The final book in Amy Plum's Revenant series.
If I Should Die is out May 2013 by Atom UK.

This cover works beautifully with the other two and might actually be my favorite for one simple reason. I love how the swirling header interacts with the model in this one, wrapping around her. I wish it wasn't in a heart around the title but I think on the model and the author's name is beautiful and I love the golden and orange coloring.

What do you think of the recently revealed book covers?

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!
