Have you had a chance to peep Robin Wasserman’s new cover, The Waking Dark (September 10th) yet?
About The Waking Dark:
They called it the killing day. Twelve people dead, all in the space of a few hours. Five murderers: neighbors, relatives, friends. All of them so normal. All of them seemingly harmless. All of them now dead by their own hand… except one. And that one has no answers to offer the shattered town. She doesn’t even know why she killed—or whether she’ll do it again. Something is waking in the sleepy town of Oleander’s, Kansas—something dark and hungry that lives in the flat earth and the open sky, in the vengeful hearts of upstanding citizens. As the town begins its descent into blood and madness, five survivors of the killing day are the only ones who can stop Oleander from destroying itself.
Jule, the outsider at war with the world; West, the golden boy at war with himself; Daniel, desperate for a different life; Cass, who’s not sure she deserves a life at all; and Ellie, who believes in sacrifice, fate, and in evil. Ellie, who always goes too far. They have nothing in common. They have nothing left to lose. And they have no way out. Which means they have no choice but to stand and fight, to face the darkness in their town—and in themselves.

Book trailer for LIES BENEATH by Anne Greenwood Brown. Thoughts?
We like Kaya Scodelario for Luce, but love the Cam pick here. Daniel is a trickier matter though…
I was fan girling and decided to make a dream cast for Fallen by Lauren Kate. If you have read…DISCUSS!

We’re in love with SERAPHINA and can’t wait for everyone to read it in July—click on the book to add to your Goodreads shelf!
I was rather fond of this book and have since discovered that I am also fond of the author so you fantasy lovers (I am thinking of Anna and Sarcasm here) should check this out when it goes on sale in July. It says it’s YA but it doesn’t really read like it.
