Macteen Cover Reveal Roundup

With Turkey Day around the corner, I thought I'd offer up a visual smorgasbord. So, feast your eyes on this stunning lineup of spring 2014 cover reveals from blog!

In the spirit of not playing favorites (and book Karma), I'm going to declare The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu as my top to-read (that doesn't have my name on it) for the spring. Which one is your favorite?

Happy Book-o-ween!

October is by far and wide the best month of the year. Think about it, the weather is cooling down just enough that you can finally wear those cute boots you bought last year on end-of-season clearance, the trees turn beautiful colors, there's an earthy breeze in the air, and at the end of the month you get to dress up as the thing you wish you could be all year long but know people would judge you for. 'Cause let's face it, wearing a tiara and prom dress covered in [fake] blood to Target would not go over well. Re: image below.
(While this ”Prom Night” look was a hit at the party I attended last year, not so much at McD's drive-in.)

So, in honor of the best--and most fabulously haunted--month of the year, I've hunted down a spooktastic to-reads list to help everyone celebrate Book-o-ween.

1. We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson - Monsters and ghouls not your thing? Spend All Hallows' Eve with a "normal" family that will creep you out so bad you'll be begging for a pack of werewolves to take you away.
2. The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (Disclaimer: If you haven't read the first book in this trilogy, you'll have some creeptastic back reading to do.) An unreliable narrator. A hot boy with an accent. Psych wards. What's not to love?
3. Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann - This Slim Jim reads like a literary The Blair Witch Project. It's a slow burn, but the fire is blood-red hot in the end.
4. Warm Bodies by Issac Marion - If you saw this movie, forget everything you think you know. This book blew my brain right out of my a good way.
5. Wicked Girls by Stephanie Hemphill - The only thing more wicked than a witch are a group of attention-starved girls in colonial Salem.
Bonus picture book pick: Zombelina by Kristyn Crow - Arabesques are a piece of cake when your leg comes off!

Happy reading...if you dare!
