Captivating Covers: Future Releases to Dream About

"Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance."
-Jean de La Fontaine

This quote can easily apply to books, don't you think? I'd like to say I judge what books I want to read solely on literary merit, but that wouldn't be completely true. Sometimes a breathtaking cover is all it takes! Here are some eye catching future releases that would surely stop me in my tracks at the bookstore, how about you?

Halo by Alexandra Adornetto (August 31 2010)
Angels? Danger? Romance? Sign me up!

Falling Under by Gwen Hayes (April 2011)
This book seems like a modern retelling of the Persephone myth- can't wait!

The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan (October 1st 2010)
It has mermaids and a beautiful cover- that was all I needed to know.

Enchanted Ivy by Sarah Beth Durst
It's by Sarah Beth Durst. That would normally be enough for me- but gargoyles? Can't wait.

Timeless by Alexandra Monir (January 11 2011)
The cover is simple- but so eerily romantic and pretty.

The Frenzy by Francesca Lia Block (October 1st 2010)
I know this has to do with dark secrets--the cover is also simple but catches the eye--makes you want to know what she is hiding!

Tyger Tyger (Goblin Wars, Book 1) by Kersten Hamilton (November 15 2010)
I love this cover - I want to know what happens when you cross through that opening!

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick (October 19 2010)
Even if I hadn't already read Hush-Hush, I'd still want to read this one based on that cover!

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White (September 21st 2010)
How can you not love that cover? That dress alone is to die-for!

Nightshade (Nightshade #1) by Andrea Cremer (October 19th 2010)
The purple colors and her eyes would make me pause, Really alluring.

Dark Song by Gail Giles (September 7th 2010)
Simple but dark and inviting- The title is also intriguing.

When Rose Wakes by Christopher Golden (September 28 2010)
I can't WAIT for this one- it pertains to the sleeping beauty fairytale and love the cover!

When the Stars Go Blue by Caridad Ferrer (November 23rd 2010)
What can I say? So pretty- love the flowers.

Vixen (Flappers 1) by Lila Fine (December 14th 2010)
I love this time period- reminds me of the musical Chicago!

The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kittredge (February 2011)
This one is dark and edgy, but definitely makes you wonder what it's about!

Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin (September 7th 2010)
Books by Nancy Werlin are a must read! And the cover is really beautiful.

All of those are gorgeous, but I think Paranormalcy is my favorite...that's some seriously rocking cover art. Nice feature!

I love the covers for both Halo and Enchanted Ivy. I'm really looking forward to the latter one, but you listed so many great books that I'll have to add many of them to my wishlist.
