Waiting on Wednesday/Cover Love: Or, Great New Covers Part 1!!

Since I forgot to post my weekly Cover Love yesterday, I thought I'd just combine it with this week's "Waiting on Wednesday" post. This week, I'm featuring three new coming-soon covers and books that I can't wait to read!

Forgive my Fins by Tera Lynn Childs (May 2010)
Lily Sanderson has a secret, and it’s not that she has a huge crush on gorgeous swimming god Brody Bennett, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. Unrequited love is hard enough when you’re a normal teenage girl, but when you’re half human, half mermaid like Lily, there’s no such thing as a simple crush.
Lily’s mermaid identity is a secret that can’t get out, since she’s not just any mermaid – she’s a Thalassinian princess. When Lily found out three years ago that her mother was actually a human, she finally realized why she didn’t feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she’s been living on land and going to Seaview high school ever since, hoping to find where she truly belongs. Sure, land has its problems – like her obnoxious, biker boy neighbor Quince Fletcher – but it has that one major perk – Brody. The problem is, mermaids aren’t really the casual dating type – when they “bond,” it’s for life.
When Lily’s attempt to win Brody’s love leads to a tsunami-sized case of mistaken identity, she is in for a tidal wave of relationship drama, and she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily-ever-after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned.
I am so, so, so excited for this one!
a) I LOVED Tera's other book, Oh.My.Gods
b) Mermaids? How cool is that?
I'm not a big fan of the cover, because I think that it could be a whole lot cuter, but still: excitedness!

Bedeviled: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Dress by Shani Petroff
(January 7, 2010)
Angel Garrett knows two things for sure. The first is that she inherited her devil-dad’s powers. The second is that she wreaks havoc whenever she tries to use them. Especially when she’s trying to impress her crush, Cole. Angel’s only solution is to stay as far away as possible from him until she learns how to harness this new gift. But how do you avoid someone and get him to ask you to the school dance at the same time?
This looks so fun! I am just about to start the first book, Bedeviled, and am so excited. Keep your eyes peeled--I'm having the Bedeviled Traveling To Teens tour stopping by my blog on September 9th!

Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey (Spring 2010)
Jill Jekel and Tristen Hyde are two high school students who gradually discover that they share a mysterious, and possibly dangerous, connection to the old novel, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. As they race against the clock to figure out the puzzle, they start to fall for each other--which is probably the worst thing that could happen to them...
A modern-day retelling of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde--cool! Beth also wrote Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, which I have yet to read, but I love this cover. It's kind of dark, but it tells a story all by itself. I'll definitely be checking this one out!

Next week, I'll be posting some more awesome new covers and summaries, so make sure to come back and check it out! Meanwhile, I'll be adding this gush-worthy upcoming new books to my growing wishlist...
