Fabulous covers revealed this week -- and one book wasn't even on my radar until now...shocking, I know:

What's in a name, Shakespeare? I'll tell you: everything.

Rosaline knows that she and Rob are destined to be together. Rose has been waiting for years for Rob to kiss her--and when he finally does, it's perfect. But then Juliet moves back to town. Juliet, who used to be Rose's best friend. Juliet, who now inexplicably hates her. Juliet, who is gorgeous, vindictive, and a little bit crazy...and who has set her sights on Rob. He doesn't even stand a chance.

Rose is devastated over losing Rob to Juliet. This is not how the story was supposed to go. And when rumors start swirling about Juliet's instability, her neediness, and her threats of suicide, Rose starts to fear not only for Rob's heart, but also for his life. Because Shakespeare may have gotten the story wrong, but we all still know how it ends.

I wasn't aware of this book until I saw it at ALA Midwinter.  Of course, the ARC only has a black cover, which made it all mysterious and such, so I had to grab it up.  But now that I know the premise, I'm even more intrigued.  I just love a good Romeo & Juliet retelling!

In the fourth and final book in the Seven Realms series, the stakes grow ever higher as a series of murders raise tensions between the Wizard Council and Spirit Clans to a fever pitch. With treachery on every side, Han and Raisa struggle to fend off threats from ambitious neighbors while keeping the queendom from imploding from within.

I'm probably the only person I know who hasn't started this series...shoot, who hasn't even read anything by Cinda Williams Chima.  But that just means that when The Crimson Crown releases, I can read the whole series together instead of dealing with that agonizing wait between books.  Also, I do have The Warrior Heir on my Nook, but I just haven't gotten around to it.  Which series would you suggest I start with?

In the future, only one rule will matter: Don’t. Ever. Peek.

Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed--arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.

Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know--especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.

Until the cover reveal of Gravity, I hadn't heard a thing about this novel.  But it sounds right up my alley.  Aliens.  A forbidden love.  A smart heroine who should know better.  Yup.  I'm gonna have to give this one a go when it's released.  Also, the preorder price on B&N right now for this paperback is only $5.70, so it's a steal!  And you know I can't pass those up!

Are you going to pick any of these up?

  1. I was planning to read Gravity. Now I'm dying to read When You Were Mine. Thanks for the heads-up!
