Book Cover Reveals + Other News!

Hey everyone!

I apologize for not posting for a while. I have several reasons for this. First of all, I have been super busy with my schoolwork, and second, I wasn't quite sure what the future of this blog was. I have been posting reviews for almost 6 months now, but it has still been rather quiet around here -insert crickets- though I have tried to thrust it into the blogging realm. Anyway, I digress....

I love looking through book sites-be it bookstore websites, blogs, etc. And I was delighted to find a few new things while I surfed the web! I think that some of you will like them, too, if you haven't heard of them already.

FIRST OFF: Aprilynne Pike just revealed the cover for the third book in her Wings series, Illusions! I love this series and cannot wait. Here is the cover:

Gorgeous, right? And, the other two covers in the series are going to be revamped to match the new one! Yay!

And here is the jacket copy from Aprilynne Pike's official blog *Spoiler alert*:

"I don't do patrols, I don't go hunting, I just stick close to you. You live your life, I'll keep you safe," Tamani said, sweeping a lock of hair from her face. "Or die trying."

Laurel hasn't seen Tamani since she begged him to let her go last year. Though her heart still aches, Laurel is confident that David was the right choice.

But just as life returns to normal, Laurel realizes that a hidden enemy lies in wait. Once again, Laurel must turn to Tamani to protect and guide her, for the danger that now threatens Avalon is one that no faerie thought would ever be possible. And for the first time, Laurel cannot be sure that her side will prevail.

Oh, Tamani.....*sigh*

Okay, next thing. I love the Clique series, and am saddened that the last book in the series is coming out next year. But, the good news is, the cover of The Clique #14: A Tale of Two Pretties has finally been unleashed to the hordes of downcast Pretty Committee enthusiasts:

Every time that I see it, I feel bittersweet pangs of nostalgia....I've been following this series since I was a tween! The official synopsis (for now) is vague, but it serves fairly well to get emotions high:

Massie Block has long led the Pretty Committee--through boy drama, clique mutinies, and jealous wannabe attacks--while always in ah-dorable outfits. Over the past thirteen novels, avid fans of Massie, Alicia, Dylan, Kristin, and Claire, have made The Clique one of the premier bestselling series in the world. After the myriad of juicy escapades, the Clique is finally ready for their curtain call.

The Clique . . . the only thing harder than getting in is saying goodbye.

*Wipes away tear*

Also, I found out about the next novel in Lauren Kate's Fallen series! It is called Passion. I do not think that there is a cover yet, but there is a tiny synopsis:

Before Luce and Daniel met at Sword & Cross and fought immortals at Shoreline, they lived many lives. . . .

Vague, I know, but it did whet my appetite. Are we going to learn about their other lives? I hope so! This is set to release June 14, 2011. Which, incidentally, is exactly eight days before my birthday, so it is definitely going to go on my wishlist.

And for the 13 to Life fans, here is the cover for the sequel, Secrets and Shadows!

Well, that's all I'll write for now! Stay tuned!

Until the next review,
Maiden Myth.

P.S. What book are you most excited about? I'd love to hear about it.
