I skipped a week for the holidays, so I have two weeks of covers to snark, though it's still been pretty slow and I've been a trifle more particular, so the selection shouldn't be much more overwhelming than usual. Posting will be back to the usual next week.
Commenting pro tip: The easiest way to comment on such a long post is to open the post in two windows (really easy if you use Google Reader). Comment in one and scroll the covers in the other. That's actually how I comment on other people's reviews too. I can't remember all my comments by the time I get to the box!
1. Indelible (The Twixt #1) - Dawn Metcalf
Thoughts: The Twixt? Whatver. That rose is gorgeous, though I find the cover as a whole a bit boring.
2. Hunted (The Iron Druid Chronicles #6) - Kevin Hearne
3. Sworn to Raise (Courtlight #1) - Terah Edun
4. Midnight Frost (Mythos Academy #5) - Jennifer Estep
5. Tempting the Jaguar - Katie Reus
7. Island of Fire (The Unwanteds #3) - Lisa McMann
8. Heavy Metal (Goddesses Rising #2) - Natalie J. Damschroder
9. Tristis Manor - J.R. Wagner
10. Velvet - Em Garner
11. The Shade of the Moon (The Last Survivors #4) - Susan Beth Pfeffer
12. Binding (Wolf Moon Saga #2) - Carol Wolf
13. Darkness Haunts (Sensor #1) - Susan Illene
14. Raksha - Frankie Rose
15. Disconnect (Divided Worlds Trilogy #1) - Imran Siddiq
16. From the Ashes - Jessica K. McKendry
17. To Serve Is Divine - R.E. Hargrave
18. January Black - Wendy S. Russo
19. Steelheart (Steelheart #1) - Brandon Sanderson
The Hunt. I like it, and it definitely makes me curious about the story's content.
20. Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia - Jenny Torres Sanchez
21. Never Forget (Memories #1) - Emma Hart
22. Truly, Madly, Deadly - Hannah Jayne
23. Allure - Melissa Andrea
24. Thread Silvers (The Golden Threads Trilogy #1) - Leeland Artra
25. Recalled (Death Escorts #1) - Cambria Hebert
Everneath cover, but you can't beat that. Still, despite the obvious imitation, a good self-pub.
26. Exile (Keeper of the Lost Cities #2) - Shannon Messenger
27. Bang (Visions #2) - Lisa McMann
28. Elysian Fields (Sentinels of New Orleans #3) - Suzanne Johnson
29. Mistwalker - Saundra Mitchell
30. Caught Up in Us - Lauren Blakely
31. Winter Queen (Fairy Queens #1) - Amber Argyle
32. The Dark Between - Sonia Gensler
33. Assassin's Gambit (Hearts and Thrones #1) - Amy Raby
34. Imminent Danger - Michelle Proulx
35. Third Lie's the Charm (The Liar Society #3) - Lisa & Laura Roecker
36. Undone (Unraveling #1.5) - Elizabeth Norris
37. The Forgotten Ones - Laura Howard
38. The Seven Year King (The Faerie Ring #3) - Kiki Hamilton
this completely awful cover. Worse still, this looks nothing like the other books in the series, image-wise. Add in a generic tag line, "A deadly sacrifice, a heartbreaking choice, an uncertain future..." (DUN DUN DUN), and we have a hot mess on our hands.
39. Any Duchess Will Do - Tessa Dare
40. Games of Fire - Airicka Phoenix
41. Jordyn (Daemon Hunter #1) - Tiffany King
42. Sins of a Ruthless Rogue (Sinners Trio #2) - Anna Randol
43. Rebellion (Lost City Shifters #3) - Eleri Stone
Thoughts: Ew. Hairy chest plus absurd fire tattoo of those magicians rings equals NO.
44. Unfearing (The Unresisting #2) - Shane Morgan
1. Fire in Her Eyes (Summer Love #1) - Amanda Heath
2. Evie's Knight - Kimberly Krey
3. The Symptoms of My Insanity - Mindy Raf
4. Reveal (Cryptid Tales #1) - Brina Courtney
Original vs. Redesign: Gross. So the worst part was the eyes, but they kept that effect. Fantastic. Winner: I refuse to choose.
WTF of the Week:
1. Gabrielle's Cauldron - Ann Gempel
2. Marked by the Alpha - Adaline Raine
Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia by Jenny Torres Sanchez
