Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: 24th April 2012

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself- and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Series: Covenant
Release Date: 3rd April 2012
There is need. And then there is Fate...

Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her.

When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon... and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude... or killing her.

When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.


  1. Nice picks! Selection totally caught my eye, and although I hate the poofy dress cover trend, this one really works because of what they did with the mirrors. Anyways, I'm adding it to my TBR. It sounds awesome.

    I haven't read the first book in the Covenant series yet, but I like the description on this one. Hope you love it! :)

  2. They both sound good but I have to give the edge to "Pure" because I love anything that sounds supernatural.

  3. Thanks for stopping by. Great picks, I haven't heard of The Selection yet but it sounds great and I really like the cover.

  4. Can't wait for these! I love the cover for The Selections - it's so serene and beautiful.
    And of course I loved Half-Blood so I absolutely cannot wait for Pure!

  5. The Selection sounds pretty interesting and I love the cover for it too. I've yet to read half-blood, but I love the covers for them. Thanks for stopping by!
