"My Thoughts"

I LOVE this cover, it is very similar to the first books cover, yet still different. I like this one more personally, I love the blue vintage wallpaper in the room, I just love this cover. I have not read Hourglass, but hopefully everyone who has is very excited for Timepiece release date! (:

Social Suicide (Deadly Cool #2) by Gemma Halliday
To be Released: April 24th 2012 by HarperTeen

Blurb: Twittercide [twit-er-sahyd]: the killing of one human being by another while the victim is in the act of tweeting. 

Call me crazy, but I figured writing for the Herbert Hoover High Homepage would be a pretty sweet gig. Pad the resume for college applications, get a first look at the gossip column, spend some time ogling the paper's brooding bad-boy editor, Chase Erikson. But on my first big story, things went...a little south. What should have been a normal interview with Sydney Sanders turned into me discovering the Homecoming Queen-hopeful dead in her pool. Electrocuted while Tweeting. Now, in addition to developing a reputation as HHH's resident body finder, I'm stuck trying to prove that Sydney's death wasn't suicide.

I'm starting to long for the days when my biggest worry was whether the cafeteria was serving pizza sticks or Tuesday Tacos...

I also havn't read this series, but I deff love this cover alot alot more than the first one.

Until I Die (Revenants #2) by Amy Plum
To be Released: May 3rd 2012 by HarperTeen

Blurb:My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.

Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.
Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.
Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.
While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love?

ha ANOTHER series I havnt read yet, but anyways I like the cover, but I think I liked the first books cover more. They made the back of her dress look kinda ..weird? idk if anyone else notices that..I think they were trying to make the dress look like it was blowing in the wind, but it just didn't work out right. Anyways still a pretty cover (:

Surrender (Possessions #2) by Elana Johnson

Forbidden love, intoxicating power, and the terror of control… 
Raine has always been a good girl. She lives by the rules in Freedom. After all, they are her father’s rules: He’s the Director. It’s because of him that Raine is willing to use her talent—a power so dangerous, no one else is allowed to know about it. Not even her roommate, Vi.

All of that changes when Raine falls for Gunner. Raine’s got every reason in the world to stay away from Gunn, but she just can’t. Especially when she discovers his connection to Vi’s boyfriend, Zenn. Raine has never known anyone as heavily brainwashed as Vi. Raine’s father expects her to spy on Vi and report back to him. But Raine is beginning to wonder what Vi knows that her father is so anxious to keep hidden, and what might happen if she helps Vi remember it. She’s even starting to suspect Vi’s secrets might involve Freedom’s newest prisoner, the rebel Jag Barque...

OMG!! I am SO excited for this book, and I LOVE the cover. The first book I read and loved it! The pretty thing about this series is all that white part, is actually sparkly! So it is actually not that plain of a book. I cannot express how excited I was when I saw this on goodreads!
