New Covers I Love!

I'm usually not one to post covers, but I recently came upon a few that just call to be posted about here. So, without a futher ado, here they are.


Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols (August 3, 2010)

Lori should have known better than to date a pirate.
After finally getting together and going out on their first real date, only Lori and Adam could manage to fall asleep—and wake up seven hours past Lori’s curfew. Their parents forbid them to see each other. So Lori takes it upon herself to date boys scarier than Adam until her dad gives in.

But Adam won’t play along. He’s afraid Lori might fall for these scary boys. And when she goes out with the scariest boy of all—Adam’s own brother and her ex-crush—even the threat of being sent away to military school can’t keep Adam from swashbuckling his way back into Lori’s heart.

Can this forbidden love stay afloat, or will it sink in the watery deep?

I love Jen's books, and while I have not read the prequel to this one ( I have it my TBR pile though), I'll definitely looking forward to reading this one!

Losing Faith by Denise Jadan (September 2010)

A sister's sudden death is shrouded in mystery in this lyrical,emotionally intense debut.

When Brie's sister, Faith, dies in a fall from a cliff, Brie's world falls apart. As she goes through the bizarre and devastating process of mourning the sister she never understood, Brie must also contend with increasingly distant parents, her boyfriend's betrayal, and her sudden outcast status at school. And once she's over the initial shock of Faith's death, Brie is encountering more questions than closure. Certain facts about the way Faith died just don't line up. She soon uncovers Faith's role in a dark and twisted religious cult...a cult that now wants Brie as a member.
I've been looking forward to reading this one since I heard about it last year, and seeing the cover has just increased that feeling. By the way, please note that the final cover will NOT have the purple outline.
The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan (October 2010)
Lena has lived her whole life near the beach—walking for miles up and down the shore and breathing the salty air, swimming in the cold water, and watching the surfers rule the waves—the problem is, she’s spent her whole life just watching.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Lena vows she will no longer watch from the sand: she will learn to surf.

But her father – a former surfer himself – refuses to allow her to take lessons. After a near drowning in his past, he can’t bear to let Lena take up the risky sport.

Yet something lures Lena to the water … an ancient, powerful magic. One morning Lena catches sight of this magic: a beautiful woman—with a silvery tail.

Nothing will keep Lena from seeking the mermaid, not even the dangerous waves at Magic Crescent Cove.

And soon … what she sees in the mermaid’s mirror will change her life …

Love the cover of this one, and I'm really the loving the mermaid trend in YA right now.
So what are YOUR thoughts on them? Will be reading any of these books when they are released?


  1. I think I will be reading all three of them! Endless Summer sounds great. I'll have to look up the prequel too.
    Losing Faith sounds fantastic. I am sad the purple will be taken out, but it is still a beautiful cover!
    I am also loving the Mermaid trend! I have loved the idea of Mermaids since I was little. Great picks Lauren!

  2. The Mermaid's Mirror! Yes, please! That sounds fab and you're right the cover is beautiful and kinda magical.

  3. The Mermaid's Mirror looks interesting! I love beach stories.

  4. Endless Summer looks like a cute book. I love it, it has the right vibe to read it when it's summer!

  5. Endless Summer sounds good, and I'm loving the cover.
    But I love mermaids, and this story sounds great! Can't wait to read it.

  6. Wow, those covers are gorgeous, thanks! As for Endless Summer, at first I though it was a new book, lol. The prequel looks like such light chick-lit, while Endless Summer's cover makes all the difference. I might have to check it out now. *smacks my shallow head*
    And, I love the colors in The Mermaid's Mirror. I'll definitely have to see what comes up about this book! :D

  7. I love the look of Endless Summer, and The Mermaid's Mirror has the same image as the UK Dreaming of Amelia by Jaclyn Moriarty. Cool!

  8. I will definitely read The Mermaid's Mirror. I like the premise, and I loved L.K. Madigan's other book, Flash Burnout.
