Waiting on Wednesday:Eye Catchy Covers Edition


Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1)
 After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men—thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the kings council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined

Just LOOK at that COVER!! I love it plus I've heard amazing things about this one :)



Auracle

Blurb:
16 year old Anna Rogan has a secret she's only shared with her best friend, Rei; she can astrally project out of her body, allowing her spirit to explore the world and the far reaches of the universe.

When there's a fatal accident and her classmate Taylor takes over Anna's body, what was an exhilarating distraction from her repressive home life threatens to become a permanent state. Faced with a future trapped in another dimension, Anna turns to Rei for help. Now the two of them must find a way to get Anna back into her body and stop Taylor from accusing an innocent friend of murder. Together Anna and Rei form a plan but it doesn't take into account the deeper feelings that are beginning to grow between them.

  5. I love the Throne of Glass cover! Have you seen a picture of the author? I think the cover girl and the author look alike (which is to say they're both gorgeous!). And of course I'm dying to read both ToG and Auracle, both sound amazing. Don't see many books about astral projections!

    Great picks :)

  8. Lovely picks! I am just dying to read both books! I think they're pitching Throne of Glass as YA-ish Game of Thrones and that just sounds awesome. And Astral Projection for Auracle? YES PLEASE!

    Check out my WoW picks this week!

  14. Those are both catchy! I've been looking forward to Throne of Glass since I saw it all over WoW. I like the UK cover even better.

    This week, I am waiting on The Shapershifter's Secret.

  15. I love the Auracle cover. It is beautiful, and it would definitely draw me in on a bookshelf. And probably wind up on my own shelf at home. The story sounds fantastic. Same goes for Throne of Glass. It isn't quite as pretty, but still eye candy. And I absolutely can't wait to read it. I think it is going to be fantastic
