So, I've got two covers to show you. Both very pretty and cool! :)

Expected Publication: October 1st 2012 by Amulet

When Charlotte Brody, a lonely 17-year-old student at a new school, receives an invitation to join The League of Strays, she's intrigued by the group's promise of "instant friendship." The League does provide companionship--and even a love interest--but Charlotte grows increasingly uncomfortable with its sinister mission to seek revenge against the bullies of Kennedy High. When escalating acts of vengeance threaten to hurl her down a path of remorse, Charlotte must choose between her new friends and the direction of a future she's never fully considered.

My Thoughts: This is an okay cover, it's actually kind of weird because both of the faces are full view. I know I've seen/read books with covers like that before, but it looked like this one has no editing to their faces done whatsoever. Like no cool effects or whatever. But I'm just gonna look past it because, what more can you do right? The cover models are gorgeous, though! I love the background, the purple-ish bokeh. ;3 The choice for the title font is very cool too, with the web-like lines going through it. I would defintily read this book. :)

Expected Publication: November 20th 2012 by Month9Books

A compelling and spirited debut from Lisa M. Basso in which sixteen-year-old Rayna Evans has spent the last three years locked away in a mental institution for seeing angels. Intent on remaining free, she ignores signs that she may be slipping into the world she has tried so hard to climb out of. But when her hallucinations begin showing up at school, can Rayna keep her job, her sanity and keep students from dying at the hand of angels she can’t admit to seeing?

Psychiatry, fantasy and real life come together in A Shimmer of Angels, as a young girl struggles with identity, secrets and confronting her greatest fears. A Shimmer of Angels is a wonderful read for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider, or perhaps has felt like giving up entirely. It touches on themes of suicide, ostracism and emotional pain. The author, personally exposed to suicide through the death of her beloved brother, will donate a percentage of sales of this novel to a local suicide prevention and outreach program in San Francisco, California.

My Thoughts: I absolutely love this cover. It has a gorgeous cover model, with gorgeous effects. It looked like fire sparks coming off the general location of her hair. It looks so cool! I would totally read this book when it comes out. :)
