Recent 2018 Cover Reveals

Some awesome covers have been revealed lately, so I thought I’d share them on the blog! I think 2018 is going to be an even better book year than 2017 has been.

(Ruined #3)
Publication Date: May 1, 2018
Hardcover, 320 pages, HarperTeen
Genres: YA, Fantasy

Note: This description is for book one in the series, Ruined.

A revenge that will consume her. A love that will ruin her.

Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war. She lacks the powers of her fellow Ruined. Worst of all, she witnessed her parents’ brutal murders and watched helplessly as her sister, Olivia, was kidnapped.

But because Em has nothing, she has nothing to lose. Driven by a blind desire for revenge, Em sets off on a dangerous journey to the enemy kingdom of Lera. Somewhere within Lera’s borders, Em hopes to find Olivia. But in order to find her, Em must infiltrate the royal family.

In a brilliant, elaborate plan of deception and murder, Em marries Prince Casimir, next in line to take Lera’s throne. If anyone in Lera discovers Em is not Casimir’s true betrothed, Em will be executed on the spot. But it’s the only way to salvage Em’s kingdom and what is left of her family.

Em is determined to succeed, but the closer she gets to the prince, the more she questions her mission. Em’s rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life—and her family—on the line, love could be Em’s deadliest mistake.

My Thoughts

I’ve read the first two books in this series, so I want to know what happens. However, I wasn’t too terribly impressed with the second book. I hope Allied will revive the series for me.

I’m in love with its cover, though! This thing is absolutely gorgeous!


(Stormheart #2)
Publication Date: June 5, 2018
Hardcover, 352 pages, Tor Teen
Genres: YA, Fantasy

New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack's young adult debut series: the second in a captivating new YA fantasy/romance series perfect for fans of Victoria Aveyard

Princess or adventurer.

Duty or freedom.

Her Kingdom or the Stormhunter she loves.

If Aurora knows anything, it's that choices have consequences. To set things right, she joins a growing revolution on the streets of Pavan.

In disguise as the rebel Roar, she puts her knowledge of the palace to use to aid the rebellion. But the Rage season is at its peak and not a day passes without the skies raining down destruction. Yet these storms are different—they churn with darkness, and attack with a will that’s desperate and violent.

This feels like more than rage.

It feels like war.

My Thoughts

I’m currently reading the first book in this series, and I’m loving it! While I think the first cover is the prettiest of the two, this cover is also stunning! The orange is beautiful.


My Plain Jane
(The Lady Janies #2)
Publication Date: June 26, 2018
Hardcover, 512 pages, HarperTeen
Genres: YA, Historical Fiction

You may think you know the story. After a miserable childhood, penniless orphan Jane Eyre becomes a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester. Despite their significant age gap (yikes) and his uneven temper (YIKES) they fall in love--and, Reader, she marries him.

My Thoughts

I still haven’t read the first book, but Cynthia Hand and Brodi Ashton are two authors I really enjoy. I’ve yet to read a Jodi Meadows book, though.

As for the cover, the blue and yellow combination is very pleasing to my eyes. I love this one way more than the first book.


These Rebel Waves
(Stream Raiders #1)
Publication Date: July 3, 2018
Hardcover, Balzer + Bray
Genres: YA, Fantasy

Inspired by the Spanish Inquisition, Raasch's duology takes place on the magic-rich island of Grace Loray, which five years ago overthrew its oppressor country, Argrid. Argrid is a country ruled by religion and has an inherent fear of Grace Loray's enchanted properties. So, when an Argridian delegate vanishes during peace talks, the country quickly places blame on Grace Loray's people and their magic.

Trapped in the middle of this reinvigorated war are three teenagers: There's Adeluna, a soldier who helped overthrow Argrid; Devereux, a pirate, or "Stream Raider," who deals in magic and becomes a target in the Argridian diplomat's abduction; and Benat, the Crown Prince of Argrid and a heretic, who is obsessed with Grace Loray's magic.

My Thoughts

I wasn’t super fond of this cover at first, simply because I couldn’t see the waves behind the symbol and I thought the background was a plain black. Now, though, I can’t stop looking at it. I love those pretty waves. I can’t wait to add this book to my shelves!


Hero at the Fall
(Rebel of the Sands#3)
Publication Date: March 6, 2018
Hardcover, 464 pages, Viking Books for Young Readers
Genres: YA, Fantasy

When gunslinging Amani Al'Hiza escaped her dead-end town, she never imagined she'd join a revolution, let alone lead one. But after the bloodthirsty Sultan of Miraji imprisoned the Rebel Prince Ahmed in the mythical city of Eremot, she doesn't have a choice. Armed with only her revolver, her wits, and her untameable Demdji powers, Amani must rally her skeleton crew of rebels for a rescue mission through the unforgiving desert to a place that, according to maps, doesn't exist. As she watches those she loves most lay their lives on the line against ghouls and enemy soldiers, Amani questions whether she can be the leader they need or if she is leading them all to their deaths.

My Thoughts

I really love the cover redesign for this series. I’m a sucker for people on my book covers. I know a lot of people hate it, but I’m a huge fan 75% of the time.


Alright, there you have it. Those are some recent cover reveals I was excited to share with you. It’s interesting that all but one are YA fantasy novels. I guess I know what genre I’ll be reading next year.

What recent cover reveals are you excited about?
