Fever (Chemical Garden #2) by Lauren DeStafano
February 21st, 2012 by Simon & Schuster
The second book in the Chemical Garden Trilogy reveals a world outside the mansion as captivating and bleak as the one Rhine left behind--and sets the stage for an explosive conclusion!
This cover looks like something out of Italian Vogue! There is a lot to look at here...it feels like a Louis Vuitton ad. I like it and then there is that green. I'm just not so sure about it. I do like that there is color...Wither was dark, but not sure if I'm sold on the green. Nit-picky, I know. Also, this is life outside the mansion? Where in the world did Rhine end up?

Perception (Clarity #2) by Kim HarrisonMarch 1st, 2012 by Scholastic
When you can see things others can't, what do you do when someone's watching you?
Everybody knows about Clarity "Clare" Fern. She's the psychic girl in school, the one who can place her hands on something and see hidden visions from the past.
Only Clare would rather not be a celebrity. She prefers hanging back, observing. Her gift is not a game to her.
But then someone starts playing with her head . . . and heart. Messages and gifts from a secret admirer crop up everywhere Clare turns. Could they be from Gabriel, the gorgeous boy who gets Clare's pulse racing? Or from Justin, Clare's hopeful ex-boyfriend who'd do anything to win her back?
One thing is certain. Clare needs to solve this mystery, and soon. Because the messages are becoming sinister, and a girl in town has suddenly disappeared.
Really digging the red hair! This cover looks like a thriller movie poster with Amy Adams. Here is what Kim had to say on her blog:
I adore Clare’s hair in this photo. And the way the model is looking over her shoulder with the woods in the background gives that sense of danger. (Tease: this is actually a scene in the book.) And birds! This cover has forest birds instead of seagulls. And it still has those magical lights around Clare’s hair. I could go on and on. I love, love, love it.
