Waiting on Wednesday (29) Stunning Covers Edition

Hallo lovely readers! :)

I don't know what else to say. LOL. Except I'm growing terribly paranoid that the P.O. lost my packages again. I'm expecting quite a few and not a single one has arrived yet, and most of them are review copies! Crappy service, really. (Sorry for the book rant!)

For this week's meme, we are featuring upcoming books with GORGEOUS covers as well as equally GORGEOUS stories! Ready? Read on!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison
Release Date: October 11th 2011
Published by: EgmontUSA
Summary (from Goodreads):

A modern retelling of the German legend "Tristan and Isolde", "Tris and Izzie", is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until-- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school.

Title: Vicious Little Darlings by Katherine Easer
Release Date: June 21st 2011
Published by: Bloomsbury USA Children's Books
Summary (from Goodreads):

Sarah Weaver wasn't looking forward to starting at an all-girls school. But that was before she met Maddy. Maddy and her best friend, Agnes, are fun and rich and interesting—and for some reason, they seem to really like Sarah. Before long, Maddy and Agnes have moved Sarah into a big house off campus, where they cook together, buy each other presents, and share each other's secrets. So why does Sarah feel like something's bizarrely wrong? As more and more cracks start to show in Maddy's and Agnes's perfect veneers, Sarah notices some strange and disturbing things: Maddy's compulsive lying, Agnes's obsession with Maddy, and the deterioration of their friendship. And just when Sarah begins to question her own sanity, things turns deadly. Fans of Pretty Little Liars will devour this juicy debut novel.

Title: The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon
Release Date: September 13th 2011
Published by: HarperTeen
Summary (from Goodreads):

A move to Ireland is about to introduce Megan to her destiny, her real destiny, can she embrace it and will she survive it?

A tragedy in Megan’s past set her on a predetermined course. A chain of events has been set in motion that brings Megan to Kinsale, a small town in the south of Ireland where her destiny awaits her. Her life starts to fall into place as she makes new friends and settles into her new school. However, the reclusive and distant Adam DeRĂ­s calls to her body and soul.

She finds herself increasingly drawn to Adam and his strange family. Adam knows a secret from her past and he and his family hold the key to her future. A future that binds her to Adam and his world, a world of power, mystery and ancient orders. A world that unbeknownst to her, she very much belongs in.

Why I'm waiting for Tris and Izzie:

I just joined the list of bloggers who were fangirling over this cover earlier today. I think it's just been recently revealed? And that's just one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen this year! I have watched the movie for Tristan and Isolde (which this book is based on) and I love it! *squeals James Franco!* For that reason alone, this book just soared up in my TBR list!

Why I'm waiting for Vicious Little Darlings:

Did the summary just mention Pretty Little Liars? Even though the covers weirds me out every time I see it (come on... Barbies?), I love that series! Which makes me look forward to reading this book as well. Don't you just love reading about evil teenage girls out to destroy each other? I do!

Why I'm waiting for The Carrier of the Mark:

The Carrier of the Mark somehow reminds me of another yet to be released novel, Starcrossed. Plus I had to spend a few minutes staring at that wonderful cover. It's so blue, and so beautiful. Is it the season of gorgeous covers? DeRis... now that's an unusual surname. Very much intrigued to find out what awaits Megan in Ireland. (One of my favorite countries!)
