There’s been a few things happening around the blogosphere recently in the YA department. Things I’m very excited about. Like cover reveals and names of sequels to books I love being released. It’s all very exciting. Trust me. I’m going to showcase a few things that made me do a little squeal this week, so be prepared.
For starters, Becca Fitzpatrick announced the title of the third book in her Hush, Hush trilogy. I really like these books. When I read the first one, HUSH, HUSH (review here), I absolutely fell in love with it and with angel stories. It was my first angel story so it gets partial credit for all the ones I read after it. I wasn’t as crazy about the second one, CRESCENDO (review here), but it ended really well and set it up for the third book, which I’m really excited about. Becca had originally called the third book TEMPEST, but later decided it didn’t fit right. So, earlier this week, she announced on FallenArchangel.com that the name of the third book will be….
If you’ve read the first two, well, you’ve probably already heard about the title, but you also know that it fits perfectly. Even if you just put those three together: HUSH, HUSH - CRESCENDO - SILENCE, they fit. It’s eerie in a way… I don’t know how to describe it except that it’s perfect. You can check out Fallen Archangel to read what Becca had to say when she revealed the title. She also announced that it is due for release on October 25, 2011. Mark your calendars. You’ll want to get it ASAP.
Second on the order of business is another title release! If you happened to read my review of Unearthly by Cynthia Hand in late November, you know that I loved it (review here). And Tucker. But that’s another story. The thing that’s now got me all excited is that Cynthia released the title of the second book in her series!! Just yesterday she released on her Twitter that the name of the book will be….
Cynthia describes the word as something holy and revered. She also says that it’s the title she originally wanted and that she’s so excited HarperTeen agrees with her because it fits the book perfectly. You can check out her blog post here, where she talks about the title and some songs that she connects with the book! Also, she said the cover reveal is due for May 2011. Not much longer, now!
here). It looks like a really great book and I’m super excited for it. I also learned yesterday that Half-Blood is part of a series and that Jennifer wrote the first two books simultaneously. The second one is to be called Pure, which I think fits perfectly after Half-Blood. Her big news yesterday came when she “revealed” the cover for Pure! I was actually really surprised it was out already because Half-Blood isn’t due out for another 8 months and Pure isn’t due until sometime in 2012! Either way, the cover is stunning, just as is the one for Half-Blood.
And if you want to compare the covers, here’s the one for Half-Blood (you can click on it to see it larger).
I honestly think they’re both so beautiful. Definitely some of my favourites covers. You can check out Jennifer’s blog here where she mentioned the new cover.
I hope you like how I feature new covers and titles that I hear about in the blogosphere. I figure that most people have already seen the new covers or heard about new titles by the time I make these posts, but I still like to sum them up at the end of the week and give my thoughts. Let me know what you think of these new reveals!
