Cover Love is Back!

Cover Love is back--yay! This week, I'm featuring two new covers that I adore (and books that I really want to read, so I guess this counts as a Waiting on Wednesday, too!):

Heist Society by Ally Carter (Feb 9, 2010)
When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her on a trip to the Louvre...to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria...to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own--scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving "the life" for a normal life proves harder than she'd expected.
Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has a good reason: a powerful mobster has been robbed of his priceless art collection and wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the supspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat's dad needs her help. For Kat there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull of the biggest heist in history--or at least her family's (very crooked) history.
My thoughts: This book sounds genius! I'm not sure I can wait to read it until February...and I love the cover, it's totally cute! (Thanks to Jennifer for originally posting the cover!!)

Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce (June 3, 2010)
Scarlett never believed in the Fenris—werewolves drawn to the delectable charms of young girls. That all changed when in one swift attack, a Fenris murdered her grandmother and left Scarlett half-blind and horrifically scarred. Only her younger sister, Rosie, escaped unharmed as Scarlett shielded her from the Fenris’s jaws.
Now eighteen, Scarlett’s life’s mission is to destroy the Fenris and save other girls from her fate—a mission she’s grown to love, despite herself. Armed with red cloaks and hatchets, Scarlett, Rosie, and a young woodsman, Silas, move to the city in search of answers—and vengeance. If they can find a Potential Fenris, tainted by the pack but not yet consumed by it, they can unlock the mystery that transforms them- but better yet, use him as bait.
But unlike Scarlett, Rosie doesn't feel the thrill of the hunt in her blood. Longing for a life away from heavy responsibility and something sweeter than steel determination, Rosie finds herself drawn to Silas. More and more often, they find themselves abandoning the search for the Potential, stealing kisses, sharing secrets.
When Scarlett discovers the romance blossoming in her midst, she abandons her sister to the woodsman, certain that her own heart has no room for love, not when it's filled with her mission, her purpose. Still, the bond between Scarlett and Rosie is too deep to truly sever, and when Scarlett discovers a way to bring her sister back to her side for good- even if it means destroying Rosie’s happiness—she is forced to make a decision that will change the course of both their lives.
My thoughts: This sounds like a cool, sister-ly book! I love fairytale modernizations, and this one is a cool twist on Little Red Riding Hood! Plus the cover is fab--the first time I saw it, I didn't even notice the wolf on the bottom, but I love the swirls and font and colors!

Which cover is your favorite?

I really like the cover of Sisters Red. I didn't notice the wolf on the bottom at first either.

Hi,

Love the site. Looks like it is centered a little bit towards teenage chick lit, which my wife absolutely loves. I will send her your way. I am starting out in the blogospher world and am wondering what you have done to be so successful. Do you have any hints for some one who is new to this type of world? Would love your honest feedback about my blog.
