Ehem...it's one of those weeks again; so many exciting cover reveals to choose from! But here're my personal favourites;
5. Scent of Magic (Healer #2) by Maria V. SnyderHunted, Killed—Survived?As the last Healer in the Fifteen Realms, Avery of Kazan is in a unique position: in the minds of her friends and foes alike, she no longer exists. Despite her need to prevent the megalomanical King Tohon from winning control of the Realms, Avery is also determined to find her sister and repair their estrangement. And she must do it alone, as Kerrick, her partner and sole confident, returns to Alga to summon his country into battle.Though she should be in hiding, Avery will do whatever she can to support Tohon’s opponents. Including infiltrating a holy army, evading magic sniffers, teaching forest skills to soldiers and figuring out how to stop Tohon’s most horrible creations yet; an army of the walking dead—human and animal alike and nearly impossible to defeat.War is coming and Avery is alone. Unless she figures out how to do the impossible ... again.
I've meaning to read Poison Study by the same author since forever. I hope to do so by the end of this year. :/
Ah, I still prefer the default cover but this one is gorgeous as well.
4. Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1) by Jessica Spotswood
A gorgeous, witchy, romantic fantasy by a debut author! Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and the Beautiful Creatures series!Everybody thinks Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship--or an early grave. Then Cate finds her mother's diary, and uncovers a secret that could spell her family's destruction. Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely unsuitable Finn Belastra. But if what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren't safe--not even from each other.
This is what I'm talking about! Awesome cover + awesome blurb.
3. The Dollhouse Asylum by Mary Gray

But when seventeen-year-old Cheyenne wakes up in Elysian Fields--a subdivision cut off from the world and its monster-creating virus--she is thrilled to have a chance at survival.At first, Elysian Fields,with its beautiful houses and manicured lawns, is perfect. Teo Richardson, the older man who stole Cheyenne's heart, built it so they could be together.

Teo dresses them up, tells them when to move and how to act, and in order to pass the test, they must play along.If they play it right, then they'll be safe.But if they play it wrong, they'll die.
It pains me to say this but yes I haven't finished with The Iron Fey series so, it may take a while before I'm able to enjoy Ethan's story.
The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #1) by Julie Kagawa

Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he’d dare to fall for.Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister’s world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.
Yes, the cover isn't official yet. And yes, I may be biased because I'M FLIPPING IN LOVE WITH THE ASSASSIN'S CURSE. Hehe. Ah, yes, I already pre-ordered this. :)
1. The Pirate's Wish (The Assassin's Curse #2) by Cassandra Rose Clarke
