2 Cover Reveals - Fever (Chemical Garden #2) by Lauren DeStafano & Perception (Clarity #2) by Kim Harrison

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 Harrison
March 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.

  1. I kind of love the Fever cover-- not sure why, since normally I sort of laugh off the quantity of covers which look like model shots of girls... I just like it for some reason. Maybe it's the tones.

    Thanks for sharing this-- it's the first I've seen these two covers. :)

  2. Both of these covers are amazing. The Fever cover is fabulous. I like it more than the first book.

  3. Ooh Fever! I keep staring at it trying to make up my mind to see whether or not I like it, I agree, it's very... Vogue! I mean, the picture is absolutely gorgeous, but I just keep staring at the rocking horse and thinking.. WHY. Don't like the horse, pretty much really liking everything else. oh, I'm not sold on the bright green either :p haha I'm too picky with covers!

  4. Love the cover of Fever, just wish I wanted to read it...just didn't love the first one, but the covers - oh yes!!!

  5. I'm kind of obsessed with the Fever cover. Seriously, Wither and Fever have the most beautiful covers I've ever seen. And they're kind of like maps as to what the story will be like.

    I like the cover of Perception, but it's not as nice as Clarity. Nonetheless, I'm very much looking forward to reading both these books.

    Thanks for posting the covers, Jen! :D

  6. Ditto that I'm not sold on the green title color, or even the font--they add too much "fake-ness" to such a realistic-looking cover, IMHO. But other than that, it's a gorgeous cover!


  7. Not too sure if I love the cover for Fever. I do love the cover for Perception though! I still need to read Clarity.

    I have my very first giveaway. I hope you can stop by and take a look.


  8. I really am impressed with the Fever cover. It definitely calls your attention to it and you just can't look away. Thanks for sharing!
