Recent 2018 YA Cover Reveals

There’ve been a few more YA cover reveals in the past couple of weeks, so I thought I’d share them with you. 

Also, these are only the cover reveals that I've noticed on my Goodreads list. If there have been others, please let me know!

Catwoman: Soulstealer
(DC Icons #3)
Publication Date: August 7, 2018
Hardcover, 304 pages, Random House
Genres: YA, Sci-Fi

Sizzling with action and suspense, #1 New York Times bestselling author SARAH J. MAAS delivers a coming-of-age Selina Kyle who will steal readers' hearts in a new, highly anticipated YA blockbuster: CATWOMAN!

When the Bat's away, the Cat will play. It's time to see how many lives this cat really has. . . .

Two years after escaping Gotham City's slums, Selina Kyle returns as the mysterious and wealthy Holly Vanderhees. She quickly discovers that with Batman off on a vital mission, Batwing is left to hold back the tide of notorious criminals. Gotham City is ripe for the taking.

Meanwhile, Luke Fox wants to prove he has what it takes to help people in his role as Batwing. He targets a new thief on the prowl who seems cleverer than most. She has teamed up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, and together they are wreaking havoc. This Catwoman may be Batwing's undoing.

In this third DC Icons book--following Leigh Bardugo's Wonder Woman: Warbringer and Marie Lu's Batman: Nightwalker--Selina is playing a desperate game of cat and mouse, forming unexpected friendships and entangling herself with Batwing by night and her devilishly handsome neighbor Luke Fox by day. But with a dangerous threat from the past on her tail, will she be able to pull off the heist that's closest to her heart?

My Thoughts

I’m really confused by this series. I’m not sure if it’s a completely separate series from the canon universe or what. I guess I should read the first book to find out, huh? I do enjoy this cover, though. I’m a huge fan of purple. In case you couldn’t tell.

However, I’m kind of hoping there’ll be special edition UK copies like there were for Wonder Woman: Warbringer. Unfortunately, I didn’t get my hands on one of those before they sold out, but I plan on getting those copies for the other releases. They’re just too pretty not to.


Publication Date: May 1, 2018
Hardcover, 256 pages, Penguin Random House
Genres: YA, Contemporary

Meet Daisy Winters. She’s an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian with mermaid-red hair; a part time job at a bootleg Walmart, and a perfect older sister who’s nearly engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Daisy has no desire to live in the spotlight, but relentless tabloid attention forces her join Ellie at the relative seclusion of the castle across the pond.

While the dashing young Miles has been appointed to teach Daisy the ropes of being regal, the prince’s roguish younger brother kicks up scandal wherever he goes, and tries his best to take Daisy along for the ride. The crown–and the intriguing Miles–might be trying to make Daisy into a lady . . . but Daisy may just rewrite the royal rulebook to suit herself.

My Thoughts

Okay, I have to admit that I’m not really feeling this cover. It’s giving me too many Princess Diaries vibes. And not in a good way. Those covers (or at least, the MMP versions of them) were blugh! I think this one could be a lot better without the diamond-looking title treatment. A handwritten font also could have made it less kiddish.

I like the crown design in the background, though…


The Emerald Sea
(The Glittering Court #3)
Publication Date: June 26, 2018
Hardcover, 400 pages, Razorbill
Genres: YA, Fantasy

The dazzling conclusion to #1 New York Times bestselling author Richelle Mead's The Glittering Court series.

Meet Tamsin, the Glittering Court's hard-angled emerald. Her outsized aspirations make her a fierce competitor, rising to the top of the ranks. But when the ship she boards for the New World is tragically lost at sea, she is quite literally thrown off-course.

My Thoughts

This book’s lack of an adequate description is messing with my post’s aesthetic. *sigh*

I actually really like this cover. The model has freckles, which is really cool. I’m super happy they didn’t Photoshop them away. She’s also a redhead, which makes the contrast between her hair and the green background really stand out.

Now, I just have to read and buy the series. ;)


Those are some recently revealed 2018 covers. What do you think? Do you like them?


  1. I am confused by the DC icons series a bit myself. I do know that I want to give them a try and this is the first that I have seen of Catwoman. What a great cover!

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who's confused. :)

  2. I want to read Wonder Woman, but that's only because I loved the movie Wonder Woman and the awesome cover! Reasons enough to buy it? :)

    1. I don't know if you should buy it or not. Could you get it at your library? I'm still on the fence about it too. I'm leaving it up to whether or not I get it as a Christmas present. ;)


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
