What if you knew exactly when you would die? In the not-too-distant future, genetic engineering has turned every newborn into a ticking time bomb — males only live to age 25 and females only live to age 20.

In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out. When 16-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by "the Gatherers" to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Rhine has only one purpose after she has been married to her new husband, Linden: to escape and find her twin brother.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden’s eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant to whom she is dangerously attracted, Rhine is desperate to learn the truth and protect those closest to her. But, as her sister wife Cecily keeps insisting, her role may be much bigger than that.

In the first two books of the Chemical Garden trilogy, Wither and Fever, Rhine struggles to escape the mansion and then to navigate the brutal world outside. Now in Sever, the third and final book, Rhine uncovers some shattering truths about the past that her parents never had the chance to tell her and the alarming implications regarding her own genes. She may be the one who can save the human race.

Reasons

 

I loved the fact that this series was faithful to the design and all the book covers are related to the girl and her evolution in this society. Only read the first book so far, but it was really good.

I just loved this series and now that we get to read them together in an anthology and with pretty covers it’s a win-win.

Previous Covers in this Series

Soul Screamers Vol. 1 : My Soul to Lose • My Soul to Take • My Soul to Save

My Soul to Keep

Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them.Until something does.Demon breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you. Somehow the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked.And so is someone else…
Reaper
Tod Hudson was a typical teenager. He liked girls, sports, food and tolerated his younger brother, Nash. In fact, he had his whole life in front of him–and due to his bean sidhe heritage, it was going to be a very long life indeed. And then the car accident occurred.
Suddenly Tod’s future wasn’t so sure, and he had to make a choice. Life… Death… or something Between…
My Soul to Steal
Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can’t just pretend nothing happened. But “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.
See, Sabine isn’t just an ordinary girl. She’s a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people’s fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.
And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.

Crimson Frost

Mythos Academy #4

Jennifer Estep

January 1st 2013 by Kensington

I have this series on my TBR pile for a long time and the covers are beautiful. In this one I loved the dragon in the background. Looks very dark.

For a moment, a face flashed before my eyes — the most hideous face I’d ever seen. No matter how hard I tried to forget what had happened, I saw him everywhere I went. It was Loki — the evil god that I’d helped set free against my will.

I should have known that my first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. If we’d gotten into a swordfight, or been ambushed by Reapers, I’d have been more prepared. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? I didn’t see that one coming. I’ve been accused of purposely helping the Reapers free Loki from his prison — and the person leading the charge against me is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks I’m guilty. If I’m going to get out of this mess alive, I’ll have to do it myself …

Demon Trappers #4

Jana Oliver

December 11th 2012 by Macmillan Children’s Books

I just loved the blue on the new cover. It fits better with the rest and the girl holding the blue orb is matches the title to perfection.

Stand by as Riley prepares to kick some serious demon butt for the last time in this thrilling, dramatic and sexy conclusion to The Demon Trappers series.


Riley’s always known that Beck had a chequered history, but she’s not prepared for what it actually means to be in love with a guy with this many dark secrets. Now that he’s finally admitted to himself that he’s in love with her too, there’s no more hiding the truth about his past. And as it turns out, fending off a demon apocalypse is nothing compared to what’s to come…

I have heard great things about this series and already bought some books, but this cover is to die for. I loved the sun rising and how he’s embracing the girl. Looks very romantic and protector! But we still don’t have a summary.

Leto’s book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dire Wants

Eternal Wolf Clan #1

Stephanie Tyler

November 6th 2012 by Signet

This the first time I’ve read about this series and this is already book two, but I can’t pass an immortal shifter.

Get Protected: The Dire Wolves are Coming

The Eternal Wolf Clan series focuses on the last six remaining Dire Wolves – Rifter, Stray, Vice, Jinx, Rogue and Harm are fierce warriors – and they’re also cursed with immortality. They’re bonded together after their Dire race was destroyed by the Elders. Now, they’re charged with helping to keep the Weres safe from the trappers – and keeping humans safe from all wolves. Each Dire Wolf has a glyph of their Brother Wolf on their back, and they also have a tribal wolf tattooed somewhere on their chest in honor of Rifter, their Dire King.

Dualed #1

Elsie Chapman

February 26th 2013 by Random House

I like some dystopia stories, and this one sounds really different. The cover shows the two bodies sort of following each other. Fits the summary and is intriguing.

Would you live through the ultimate test of survival?

The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.

Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.

I love the cover design in this series. All show different flowers but made from shadows. For this book is a gorgeous flower made from water. Beautiful.

Aiden’s novella

Aiden St. Delphi will do anything to save Alex.
Even if it means doing the one thing he will never forgive himself for.
Even if it means making war against the gods.

House Rules (Chicagoland Vampires, #7)

House Rules
Chicagoland Vampires #7
Chloe Neill
February 2013 by NAL Penguin

I loved this cover and the series shows Merit growing as a vampire and learning more of life and love. Plus Ethan is pure sexiness.

 

In a city full of vampires, trouble never sleeps.

At the tender age of 27, Merit became a sword-wielding vampire. Since then, she’s become the protector of her House, watched Chicago nearly burn to the ground, and seen her Master fall and rise. Now she’ll see her mettle—and her metal —tested like never before.

It started with two . . . Two rogues vanishing without a trace. Someone is targeting Chicago’s vampires, and anyone could be next. With their house in peril, Merit and her Master, the centuries old Ethan Sullivan, must race to stop the disappearances. But as they untangle a web of secret alliances and ancient evils, they realize their foe is more familiar, and more powerful, than they could have ever imagined.

I first saw this cover on Wednesday I think and after comparing with the American decided that this one was better to show her. Loved how the faces are luminous and the girls are both looking directly at us. Sounds like a good read too.

 

Just because Mel lives in New Whitby, a city founded by vampires, doesn’t mean she knows any of the blood-drinking undead personally. They stay in their part of town; she says in hers. Until the day a vampire shows up at her high school. Worse yet, her best friend, Cathy, seems to be falling in love with him. It’s up to Mel to save Cathy from a mistake she might regret for all eternity!

On top of trying to help Cathy (whether she wants it or not), Mel is investigating a mysterious disappearance for another friend and discovering the attractions of a certain vampire wannabe. Combine all this with a cranky vampire cop, a number of unlikely romantic entanglements, and the occasional zombie, and soon Mel is hip-deep in an adventure that is equal parts hilarious and touching.

Cover Love #1 – September Pick

Cover Love is an original feature at I’m Loving Books. On the 1st of every month, I round up all of my favorite covers from books I’ve read the previous month and tell you what I love about them!

I hope is ok that I kinda of borrowed this meme, cause I loved the idea for a small retrospective from book covers, only the best of them, from my point-of-view.

Hope this will show new books and old lovers that brings good memories.

Title: Firelight
Author: Sophie Jordan
Series: Firelight, #1
 
What I Love: 

Two things actually, before I started the book, the red hair and her blue pupils really draw me in, but after I started I love how the cover shows her transformation to draki, I haven’t noticed that before, maybe it was just me, or maybe not, who konws, lol.

Since today I received Vanish from my mailman I have to say it will probably show next month on this meme. It’s amazing how this series kept the cover concept very simple and absolutely beautiful.

Not Convinced? Read my review before showing the love.
