Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein
Genies! This cover is really gorgeous in person.

Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt 40th Anniversary Edition, which is really pretty and shiny and gold and gorgeous

From Penguin:

The Last Wild and The Dark Wild by Piers Torday
I'd never heard of this middle grade book (or its sequel) until it showed up in the mail, but the cover and the premise (a boy who lives in a world without animals and can't talk...until he realizes there ARE animals and he can ONLY talk to them) have sold me.

From Harper via Edelweiss:

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
I LOVE THIS WEBCOMIC SO MUCH AND AM SO GLAD IT'S BEING PUBBED BY HARPER BECAUSE THE END OF IT WAS SO BRUTAL AND I WANT MORE AND IT'S THE BEST THING EVER

A Ring Through Time by Felicity Pulman
I hadn't heard of this one, but it has a historical element? A historical Australian convicts element about at that? I like. I very like. The cover looks kind of like the old proto-YA stuff I grew up reading.

  5. The cover for Becoming Jinn looks like it'd be beautiful and fun to pet like a maniac in real life. Plus, the blurb is very intriguing. I've decided I need that book. Genies? Yes. And calling them Jinn makes me think of djinn in Supernatural, which can only make me want to read it more. Enjoy your books.

  11. AHHHHH THE NIMONA COVER IS SO ADORABLE. That is so cute. I think I'll buy that one when it releases.

    The Tuck Everlasting cover is so pretty. I've never actually read it. But, maybe I will with that new cover.
