DisCover #12

I loveLoveLOVE book covers as much as I love the books guys might know that I decided to make a new feature (called DisCover..geddit?!) where I'll be highlighting 3-4 books covers every week! Then, you can ooh and aah as much as you like in the comments box! 

Don't Breathe A Word by Holly Cupala

Joy Delamere is suffocating.

From asthma, from her parents, and from her boyfriend, delectably dangerous Asher, who is smothering her from the inside out.

Joy can take his words—tender words, cruel words—until the night they go too far.

Now, Joy will leave everything behind to find the one who has offered his help, a homeless boy called Creed. She will become someone else. She will learn to survive. She will breathe...if only she can get to Creed before it’s too late.

Set against the gritty backdrop of Seattle’s streets and a cast of characters with secrets of their own, Holly Cupala’s powerful new novel explores the subtleties of abuse, the meaning of love, and how far a girl will go to discover her own strength. 

You guys know how much I LOVE Holly Cupala, right? 'Cause, I do. Loads. And I can't *WAIT* to read her second novel, Don't Breathe a Word! I adored her debut, Tell Me a Secret so much, and I'm just SO excited for this to release! And cover LOVE, or WHAT?! I love everything..from the way the girl (Joy?)'s hair falls, to the gorgeous yellow used for the title!! <3 Think Holly's name should be a bit bigger though..

Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale

When seventeen-year-old Rosie’s mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington’s Disease, her pain is intensified by the knowledge that she has a fifty-per-cent chance of inheriting the crippling disease herself. Only when she tells her mum’s best friend, ‘Aunt Sarah’ that she is going to test for the disease does Sarah, a midwife, reveal that Trudie was not her biological mother after all... Devastated, Rosie decides to trace her real mother, hitching along on her ex-boyfriend’s GAP year to follow her to Los Angeles. But all does not go to plan, and as Rosie discovers yet more of her family's deeply-buried secrets and lies, she is left with an agonising decision of her own - one which will be the most heart-breaking and far-reaching of all...

Stunner. I love the photograph, and the font-that-looks-like-chalk is awesome! Another book I can't wait for!!

Fury by Elizabeth Miles

The first book in a paranormal teen trilogy featuring three beautiful, mysterious girls wreaking havoc on a small New England town.

Sometimes sorry isn't enough....

It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But not all is as it seems...

Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better--the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend.

On the other side of town, Chase is having problems of his own. The stress of his home life is starting to take its toll, and his social life is unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel...something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.

In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. And three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—are here to choose who will pay.

Em and Chase have been chosen.

I posted the UK cover for this on my last DisCover..but the US cover needs to be on here as well. LOVE. Red/ginger hair FTW. Love the fiery-effect going on.

(to all the BEA-ers who got to meet Elizabeth Miles today..I hate you.)

What do you think?



  1. I love these cover picks. I can't wait for the Holly Cupala. I still have to read her debut but I really want to read Don't Breathe a Word. I've heard such amazing things.

    And Fury sounds pretty awesome too. Great cover!

  2. Oooh ... pretty. I like this feature. It's fun and totally drool-worthy :)
