More 2018 Cover Reveals!

More cover reveals! Including the cover for my most anticipated release of 2018!

Ace of Shades
(The Shadow Game #1)
Publication Date: April 10, 2018
Hardcover, 400 pages, Harlequin Teen
Genres: YA, Fantasy

Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…
and secrets hide in every shadow.

Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted.

Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn't have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne's offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems.

Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi's enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…

And she’ll need to play.

My Thoughts

Ace of Shades is not my most anticipated release of 2018, but it sounds like it could be a pretty good read. I love criminals in books, especially when they’re the sexy bad-boy type. ;)

I am a little sad that this book has a red cover. (Red is my least favorite color.) I guess I can understand why, since gambling is always associated with the color red. But, it still looks nice.


Leah on the Offbeat
Publication Date: April 24, 2018
Hardcover, 352 pages, Balzer + Bray
Genres: YA, Contemporary

Leah Burke—girl-band drummer, master of deadpan, and Simon Spier’s best friend from the award-winning Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda—takes center stage in this novel of first love and senior-year angst.

When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she’s the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.

So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high. It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.

My Thoughts

The cover for this one threw me off a little bit. I guess I wasn’t expecting it to look so similar to Simon in its overall design. I love the colors and the font. What I don’t love is that stupid sticker. And, it better be a sticker and not a permanent piece of the cover. I will riot if it is.


War Storm
(Red Queen #4)
Publication Date: May 15, 2018
Hardcover, 400 pages, HarperTeen
Genres: YA, Fantasy


Mare Barrow learned this all too well when Cal’s betrayal nearly destroyed her. Now determined to protect her heart—and secure freedom for Reds and newbloods like her—Mare resolves to overthrow the kingdom of Norta once and for all… starting with the crown on Maven’s head.

But no battle is won alone, and before the Reds may rise as one, Mare must side with the boy who broke her heart in order to defeat the boy who almost broke her. Cal’s powerful Silver allies, alongside Mare and the Scarlet Guard, prove a formidable force. But Maven is driven by an obsession so deep, he will stop at nothing to have Mare as his own again, even if it means demolishing everything—and everyone—in his path.

War is coming, and all Mare has fought for hangs in the balance. Will victory be enough to topple the Silver kingdoms? Or will the little lightning girl be forever silenced?

In the epic conclusion to Victoria Aveyard’s stunning series, Mare must embrace her fate and summon all her power… for all will be tested, but not all will survive.

My Thoughts

LOOK AT IT! It’s an actual book! I’m finally going to get my hands on the last book in this godforsaken series! I feel like I’ve waited years!

In case you haven’t realized it yet, this is my most anticipated book of 2018.

I’m in love with this cover. I like the electricity and the blood with the dark purply-black background. The only thing that makes me sad about this cover is the title’s font. All of the other books in the series had black font, and this one doesn’t (obviously because it wouldn’t show up on the background). But this means the spines will look different. *sigh*


There you go. Those are some new covers. At least two of them were revealed this week. I’m not sure, though, when Ace of Shades’s cover was debuted.

Any favorite of the three? Mine’s War Storm, hands down.
