In the last week there have been some amazing cover reveals. Gorgeous covers are always my biggest downfall, but when pretty covers are followed up with awesome plot summaries, I tend to get giddy with excitement. I have to admit that I hadn't even heard of these books until yesterday, but already they've made it to my wishlist for 2013.
17 & Gone
Nova Ren Suma
Expected publication: March 2013
Expected publication: April 2013
There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends...and he’s gone.Aren't the covers to die for? I have no idea how I'm going to wait until 2013 for these awesome reads! What are your thoughts on these amazing covers?
They call it the Heist.
Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.
Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?
