The Guard (Selection #2.5) by Kiera Cass

eeea3-18170039Cover Lust: If this was a print copy, it would illuminate any bookshelf. A sparkling waterfront castle, the signature Selection tiara, a golden sunset theme…it’s pure radiance. There seems to be a color theme on the covers that symbolize the characters in this series. Could the gold be representing the color of Aspen’s button?

Description: Before America Singer met Prince Maxon…

Before she entered the Selection…

She was in love with a boy named Aspen Leger. Continue reading

The Elite (Selection #2) by Kiera Cass

16248068The Cover: Another beautiful cover, although the dress is my least favorite of the three. I’m not really a fan of the orangish-red or the panels. But the look does seem to fit America really well for this book. This gown is sharp and rough as opposed to her soft and fluffy blue one. Her expression is intimidating and determined, like she’s either on a mission or glaring at Celeste (HINT: She’s usually both). America is once again portrayed by the stunning Audrey Hollister. If I ever have the fortunate luck of meeting her in person, I’m asking for an autograph and then stealing her tiara.

Back Blurb:  The Selection began with thirty-five girls. Continue reading

The Prince (Selection #0.5) by Kiera Cass

08bd1-15820748Cover Lust: *Swoon!* Love, love, LOVE, the cover art for the Selection novellas! No princess dresses here, but the sparkly purple mirror background is stunning (is the purple signifying the color of royalty?). And of course, the to-die-for tiara. Simple, regal, and elegant.

Description: Before thirty-five girls were chosen to compete in the Selection….Before Aspen broke America’s heart…There was another girl in Prince Maxon’s life…

The Book: The Prince (#0.5) consists of six short chapters that give us a glimpse of Prince Maxon’s life personal life before the Selection. We also get to better know King Clarkson and Queen Amberly.

The Selection (Selection #1) by Kiera Cass

f0b2d-0fc6031ac490c9b5b75a2e098402f746Cover Lust: This series has hands-down the most drop-dead gorgeous covers I’ve ever seen. The tiara, the mirrors, the font, the DRESS! I would give up my whole bookshelf for that dress! Well, maybe not, but I’d definitely prance around in the blue ball gown I wore to my junior prom and pretend to be America (with blonde hair). The UK cover is even prettier with the splash of pink (see below), if that’s even possible. I could literally stand at my bookshelf and stare at these covers all day. America is portrayed by the lovely and talented Audrey Hollister.

Back Blurb: For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. Continue reading

Torn (Feuds #2) by Avery Hastings

23014695Cover Lust: This cover is absolutely stunning! It has the same chemical-inspired backdrop as Feudsbut instead of the purple it has a teal color scheme. Davis looks like a cosmic-inspired ballerina who’s dancing and floating at the same time. I like how we can see her face and that her hair still gets a lot of attention. I was hoping for a ballerina bun, but her ponytail is lustrous and envious. The leotard is cute, but I’m slightly disappointed that she’s not wearing a tutu or pointe shoes. Nonetheless, the cover is still gorgeous.

Back Blurb: In the final thrilling installment of the Feuds series, Davis and Cole must battle seemingly insurmountable forces to find their way back home–-and back to each other. Continue reading

Rival (Feuds #0.5) by Avery Hastings

22718588The Cover: I like the design and the color scheme; it goes well with the other covers as a novella. Davis looks gorgeous, of course, bearing a slight resemblance to a brunette Jennifer Aniston. I like how we can see only one of her eyes and neither of Seth’s eyes; it’s very mysterious. What I’m not sure about is Davis’s outfit. Her sheer sweater is pretty, but it’s got a lingerie vibe to it. What is she wearing underneath? Is it a nude bra or tank top? Or is that her bare breast conspicuously out on display? Once you see it, that’s what you see each time you look at the cover. But it does add some sex appeal, appropriately setting the stage for the brief romance to come.

Back Blurb: Davis Morrow has always been a little bit afraid to fall in love, to lose her focus, to be anything other than perfect. But while relaxing in an elite spa after another grueling rehearsal for a ballet showcase, Davis meets Seth, a trainer with intense eyes and a chiseled face to match his athletic build…and everything changes. Continue reading

Feuds (Feuds #1) by Avery Hastings

Cover Lust: Beautiful eye-catching cover! It’s got purple, blue, a little gold, a cosmic city backdrop, and of course, a Black Swan-esque ballerina. The only thing I want is more costume detail. Is it shiny, glittery, or have sequins? What about the shoes and stage makeup? I like seeing outfits that really represent the character. Davis looks pretty generic; she’s actually portrayed by a stock photo that has been used on other book covers (like Tiny Pretty Things).

Back Blurb: For Davis Morrow, perfection is a daily reality. Like all Priors, Davis has spent her whole life primed to be smarter, stronger, and more graceful than the lowly Imperfects, or “Imps.” A fiercely ambitious ballerina, Davis is only a few weeks away from qualifying for the Olympiads and finally living up to her mother’s legacy when she meets Cole, a mysterious boy who leaves her with more questions each time he disappears.
