Why hello! Thank you for popping over on this wet Sunday. Why am I writing this on a Sunday, I hear you ask? Well, COVERS! I've been a bit slow on the Cover front and I thought I would show some new covers that have been revealed and go "OOOH! SHINY!" over them.

First of all, is Zoe Marriott's The Night Itself. This will be the first book in a trilogy entitled The Name of the Blade. The Night Itself is about Mio, who steals her grandfather's priceless katana to make her fancy dress costume. But in doing so unleashes an ancient evil onto the streets of modern day London and only Mio can stop it... Cool, huh? I only got into Zoe with Frostfire so this is gonna be awesome. And here is her cover:

Sticking with Walker Books, the cover of Rob Lloyd Jones's Wild Boy have been revealed a few days ago. This book, set in Victorian London, follows a travelling circus who have a Wild Boy - a boy completely covered in hair. A boy who watches people and spots things no one else does. A boy who who gets accused of murder and must run, not only from the Police, but towards the truth... I can't wait to read this!

Sticking with red coloured covers (just trying to keep the follow going), Strange Chemistry unveiled its May publication, Zenn Scarlett by Christian Schoon. Zenn is training to be a exoveterinarian (a vet for aliens). Her training on Mars is going really well... until animal escapes start happening, which Zenn finds herself blamed for. And then her father vanishes...

And last, but by no means least, is the second novel from one of my fave authors of last year, Tanya Byrne. Follow Me Down follows Adamma, who is forced to leave her glossy high school in New York to a dusty boarding school in the UK. Things look awful, until she meets Scarlet and the two instantly hit it off. Best friends, until a guy comes between them. The battle lines are drawn. And then Scarlet runs away. But she didn't just run away because she didn't get the guy... right?

What do you think about these covers? You like? You not so sure? My thanks for the covers go here, there and everywhere. Mostly Hannah from Walker Books for the Wild Boy cover and Laura (aka Sisterspooky) for her posts on The Night Itself, Zenn Scarlett and Follow Me Down.


  1. Follow me Down looks really good. Cover oh shiny covers.....

  2. I like all of these covers for different reasons. I have to agree with Escapism and So Many Books, Follow Me Down is my favorite. Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven
