Check out this fabulous cover for Megan Miranda's HYSTERIA. I loved it!

About her cover, Megan had this to say

The first time I saw this image, I did a double-take. Then I got a chill.
I adore it.
I love this cover for many, many reasons, but I think the aspect I appreciate the most is how much it captures the feel of the story (in the same way I felt the cover for Fracture did the same).
Anyway, I hope you love the cover as much as I do, and I hope you’ll enjoy the story inside. I can’t wait to share it. As of now, the US publication date is: February 5th, 2013.

(PS – the UK cover is totally different, but also totally awesome – I’ll be posting about that one soon!)

USA Today revealed the cover for Marissa Meyer's follow up to Cinder. Scarlet, which will be hitting shelves in early 2013, follows the story of Scarlet, Little Red Riding Hood, who's a firebrand from France. I totally love this cover. I also LOVE fairy tale retellings with a spin, and I can not wait to read this one. USA Today also announced the rest of Marissa's The Lunar Chronicles. Cinder and Scarlet will be followed by Cress (2014), which is a spin on Rapunzel and Winter (2015), which is Marissa's spin on Snow White. Be sure to check out the rest of the article here. Enter to win an ARC of Scarlet from Marissa HERE!

Jennifer Armentrout's book trailer for OBSIDIAN, which was filmed by Vania of VLC Photos was revealed yesterday on USA Today. WOW this trailer is a little hot...., but then again so is Daemon and Kat's scenes in Obsidian. Along with yesterday's trailer reveal, USA Today also treated fans to a lovely Obsidian TEASER:

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opens his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don't kill him first, that is.

You can find out more about the making of this trailer on Jennifer's site HERE.
