The Good Girls (The Perfectionists #2) by Sara Shepard


23171368The Cover:
Bright pink, swirly font, and mint-chip ice cream. Yes, please! Harper Teen has the best cover designs, especially for Sara Shepard’s books.

Back Blurb: In Beacon Heights, Washington, five perfect girls have done some not-so-perfect things…

High school seniors Mackenzie, Ava, Julie, Parker, and Caitlin have been accused of murder–-a murder they didn’t commit. Sure, they talked about killing rich bully Nolan Hotchkiss, but it’s just a coincidence that Nolan died in exactly the way they planned…right? Continue reading

The Perfectionists (The Perfectionists #1) by Sara Shepard

20549288The Cover: Font and overall style similar to PLL, but I really like this theme better. I like the pop of the bright blue background. The thorny purple rose feels a little sexy and and dangerous at the same time. It also seems a more intriguing since there’s no faces or dolls on the cover.

Back Blurb: In Beacon Heights, Washington, five high school seniors know that you don’t have to be good to be perfect.

Mackenzie, Ava, Caitlin, Julie, and Parker are all driven to be perfect–-no matter the cost. At first these five girls think they have nothing in common, until they discover they all hate the same person: rich, entitled Nolan, who’s done terrible things to each of them. They come up with the perfect plan to Continue reading

Shiny Broken Pieces (Tiny Pretty Things #2) by Sona Charaipotra & Dhonielle Clayton

26198216Cover Lust: Simple, glam, and a perfect complement to the first. I love the striking color opposition (Opposition! That’s a ballet term!). The two books look effortlessly beautiful together.

Back Blurb: June, Bette, and Gigi have given their all to dance at Manhattan’s most elite ballet school. Now they are competing one final time for a spot at the prestigious American Ballet Company. With the stakes higher than ever, these girls have everything to lose…and no one is playing nice.

Tiny Pretty Things (Tiny Pretty Things #1) by Sona Charaipotra & Dhonielle Clayton

18710209Cover Lust: Simple, glam, and gorgeous. How can you not love this cover? Everything on it represents the book perfectly: the shiny satin ribbons, the dark background, and the pieces of shattered glass. Shiny things that are broken or about to crack are all over the story. It’s a beautiful cover to add front and center to your strategically organized bookshelf.

Back Blurb: How far is too far? At one of Manhattan’s most elite ballet schools, wafer-thin ballerinas pull their hair into sleek buns and lace their pointe shoes high, waiting for their chance to shine. But beneath the pretty, polished surface, these girls are hiding some terrible secrets and telling some twisted lies. Continue reading

The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate

11035606The Cover: Simple yet dramatic Girl in a Dress Cover. I love the color and shape of the dress, but I want more. It’s a royal ball, right? Where’s the tiara-worthy undo? The shoes? What do the front and back of the dress look like? What about the infamous crown? Missing a few goodies but overall aesthetically pleasing. The first edition copy with the lavender dress is my favorite, but the waterfall does add some mystique to the UK cover.

Back Blurb: Natalie Hargrove has been dreaming for years of being crowned senior class prom queen. She’s got everything it takes: beauty, popularity, and ambition.

When a boy from her past threatens to ruin her flawless plan, Natalie sets into motion a chain of events meant to regain control. But she’s made one fatal mistake… Continue reading

The Selection Stories (The Selection #0.5 & #2.5) by Kiera Cass

74df3-18172471Cover Lust: Another swoonworthy cover! I love the close-up of America’s face. Her makeup is on point, especially those eyebrows! Her expression is confident with a little bit of mystery. I do wish we could see her dress (is it the same one from the cover of the first book?) or the back of her hair. Either way, the model Audrey Hollister continues to dazzle us with her beauty.

Back Blurb: Before America Singer was chosen to compete in the Selection…

She was in love with a Six named Aspen Leger…

And there was another girl in Prince Maxon’s life. Continue reading
