So here are my opinions on some of the new covers out in the world:
by Dot Hutchison
-So this is a paranormal Hamlet retelling. And it's kind of another girl in a dress cover, but I get the paranormal vibe... probably because of the old fashioned dress. I think it's a really pretty cover, gorgeous even... but that foot!! That damn foot freaks me out a little. It's so pointed and it looks really BIG... and I just don't like that.
by Sarah Beth Durst
-This story has a circus element to it, and I must say I am definitely feeling a circus-ey freak show vibe from this cover. I really like the simplicity of the heart and the font of the title is unique and eye-catching
by Kiersten White
-EEEE!!! Cover love!! It's SO pretty I can only imagine what this looks like in person. I love the gold and the blue and how it looks sort of glittery and how there are different shapes in the corner designs. I'm not sure I love the tagline though: "Family is forever. Especially when they're immortal." I'm not really a fan of those on covers.
by Gretchen McNeill
-This book is about a girl who slips into a parallel universe... and while the cover doesn't scream this to me, I still really like it. I think the black is eyecatching because it's not a common book cover color. I also like the the ":" looks like flashlights.
by Jennifer Shaw Wolf
-Ughhh this font!! I am SO sick of this font. The white handwritten looking font against a depressing background. I'm over it. Here are a few that are giving me Deja Vu.

-I usually don't like covers where it's a face, but this one I think works. The water at the bottom maybe isn't Photoshopped as professionally as I would perfer (it looks a little ameturish) and I'm not the biggest fan of the Hurt font... but I really like the guy. Maybe it's the hair in his face or the two little beauty marks... something about him makes me sad and thinks he's hot at the same time.

-Wow this cover is a major letdown. I thought the cover of book 1 (pictured below) had a really cool/eerie looking original cover. While I see how this ties in to the first book by having a reflection theme, I don't like the 2nd cover. It looks amateurish to me and honestly it looks like she's about to take a ballet class.

-Blah. Sick of kissing on covers (is she kissing up his nose??) and here is that white "handwritten" font again. Plus are they wearing matching shirts... and that ground looks icky to be laying on. Then again this IS about a teacher student relationship so icky is relevant.
11. Tumble & Fall
By: Alexandra Coutts
-Ohhh it's pretty. And shiney. And sparkly. And it almost makes up for his face. What is that face he's making?? Oh well at least the end of the world looks pretty!!
12. The Outside
(The Hallowed Ones #2)
By: Laura Bickle
-I think it's definitely serving it's purpose for creepiness. The house, the guy, the black birds, the girl's face. All super creepy! It feels familiar though. Not completely 100% in love with it.
By: Heidi McLaughlin
-Ummm what?? Very confused here. A couple strolling happily through a field... while on the otherside Eminem contemplates his life on 8 mile? What is with these 2 crazy images being thrown together?? This is New Adult for ya.
So there you have it. My first Cover Lover (or Hater) post. I'm going to give my take on the new releases from each month as they come out. My next post will be on the October covers :)
Now I wanna know: what do you think of these covers??
