Grumpy Book Grrrl

a writer and reader

New beautiful book covers… I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for them! I got most of these from Epic Reads Harper’s Winter 2018 YA Cover Reveals.


I liked Roar (Stormheart #1) by Cora Carmack, but didn’t love it. However, I am still looking forward to seeing where the author takes the story!


This one I am just kinda curious about. Two big-name authors teaming up to write a space opera together? Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman are having wild success with their Illuminae Files trilogy.


This is one of my favorite tropes: girl and robot boy. Well, I think this is more of her trying to save his glitchy self and meeting ANOTHER boy, then rebelling and fighting for good vs. evil ensues. Space operas! I love ’em.


Oh, so pretty. The premise sounds intriguing. Time can literally be sucked from you by removing your blood and is a form of payment? Sign me up!


Finally, The Queen’s Rising. This sounds like a fantasy with romantic elements. But the main character is born out of wedlock! Interesting. I wish we saw more of this type of thing. Looks good to me!

    Those are some pretties! I love the current trends in cover art, lots of striking colors and graphic design!


    1. Esp. young adult fantasy, in my view. There really are some spectacular ones. – Shelly


  2. I like the ‘Heart of Iron’ cover! And ‘Everless’ looks cool as well.

    ‘The Queen’s Rising’ looks like someone took one of those generic hooded woman-covers and put a frame around it. I am sure I’ve seen this one before without the frame hahaha

  3. Queen’s Rising… yeah, I see your point. But something about the color scheme and the twinkling star things… just got me. Is it constellations? Yeah, I’m a sucker for stuff like that, lol. – Shelly
