You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover...Or Can You?

Warriors: Power of Three #5: Long Shadows
The Warriors series by Erin Hunter is not YA, it's middle grade. However I still love them. They are one of my only guilty pleasures. I started reading them when they first came out, back when I was in elementary school, and have continued on ever since. The latest book, the fifth installment in the third series, comes out later this week and I couldn't help but feature it.
Release:
November 25, 2008
Synopsis (Courtesy of Amazon.com):
The Clans are in turmoil. ShadowClan has turned its back on StarClan and pledged to follow the dark predictions of Sol, the strange cat who foretold the solar eclipse. But not all the cats have lost faith in their warrior ancestors. . . .
Jaypaw is convinced that StarClan still holds an important place in the warrior code, and his search for answers leads him far back into the past, farther back than even StarClan can remember. Lionblaze, tortured by violent dreams and bloody visions, wishes he had never been prophesied to be one of the three but to turn his back on his littermates would be the ultimate betrayal. And Hollyleaf is terrified that once the Clans lose their faith, the warrior code will fall apart. She's willing to fight tooth and nail to preserve it—whatever the cost.
And when murder stalks into the heart of ThunderClan, the cats realize that the darkest shadows don't always lie outside the territory.
Cover:
I have to say, with each new book the covers get better and better. Whoever designs the covers for the series is amazing. I love the emotion in the cat's eyes and the way the light shines in the background. This cover is definitely one of my favorites of the series.

The King's Rose
For those of you who didn't know this, I love historical fiction. My favorite subject, by far, is the Tudor family. So when I saw this book I practically fell out of my chair. It feels like ages since I've seen a YA novel about the Tudors. The King's Rose is definitely high on my list.
Release:
March 19, 2009
Synopsis (Courtesy of Amazon.com):
Life in the court of King Henry VIII is a complex game. When fifteen-year-old Catherine Howard catches the king’s eye, she quickly transforms from pawn to queen. But even luxury beyond imagination loses its luster as young Catherine finds her life—and her heart—threatened by the needs of an aging king and a family hungry for power. Will their agendas deliver Catherine to the same fate as her infamous cousin, Anne Boleyn—sacrificed at the altar of family ambition?
Engaging historical fiction with a throbbing YA heartbeat, this thrilling novel will draw readers into the intrigues and dangers of the Tudor court.
Cover:
Wow! Just wow! The girl's dress is absolutely amazing and the red rose, genius. It immediately draws your eye to the book. This cover is one of my favorites for historical fiction.

  1. I think The King's Rose has a really cool cover! And I read middle grade books too, as long as they sound good.

  2. I think you are right. We really can not judge the internal content or the story of the book by its cover.
