Top 5 angol nyelvű, júniusi megjelenésű YA borító

Június remek hónapnak bizonyul a könyves megjelenések tekintetében. Sok sorozat folytatódik, és még annyi különálló kötet kerül kiadásra, ezekből szemezgettem olyanokat, amikre a borító hívta fel elsősorban a figyelmemet. Különös véletlenként ötből négy egy napon jelent meg (június 5.), s csak az utolsó fog 26-án kijönni.

Rose Asher believes in ghosts. She should, since she has one for a best friend: Logan, her annoying, Netflix-addicted brother, who is forever stuck at fifteen. But Rose is growing up, and when an old friend moves back to Laguna Canyon and appears in her drama class, things get complicated.

Jamie Aldridge is charming, confident, and a painful reminder of the life Rose has been missing out on since her brother’s death. She watches as Jamie easily rejoins their former friends–a group of magnificently silly theater nerds–while avoiding her so intensely that it must be deliberate.

Yet when the two of them unexpectedly cross paths, Rose learns that Jamie has a secret of his own, one that changes everything. Rose finds herself drawn back into her old life–and to Jamie. But she quickly starts to suspect that he isn’t telling her the whole truth.

Nekem nagyon tetszik az egész színséma, de az még óriásibb megoldás, ahogy a méh útvonala kitesz egy arcalakot. A kicsit krétás megoldású tipográfia is remek választás.

The summer after her freshman year in college, Mariam is looking forward to working and hanging out with her best friends: irrepressible and beautiful Ghazala and religious but closeted Umar. But when a scandalous photo of Ghaz appears on a billboard in Times Square, Mariam and Umar come up with a plan to rescue her from her furious parents. And what better escape than New Orleans?

The friends pile into Umar’s car and start driving south, making all kinds of pit stops along the way—from a college drag party to a Muslim convention, from alarming encounters at roadside diners to honky-tonks and barbeque joints.

Along with the adventures, the fun banter, and the gas station junk food, the friends have some hard questions to answer on the road. With her uncle’s address in her pocket, Mariam hopes to learn the truth about her father (and to make sure she didn’t inherit his talent for disappearing). But as each mile of the road trip brings them closer to their own truths, they know they can rely on each other, and laughter, to get them through.

Mostanában nagyon felkapottak a kirándulós könyvek, de én nem panaszkodom, mindig kikapcsol az ilyen olvasása. A borítóról is nyári, könnyed hangulat jön át, szerintem nagyon eltalálták.

A Dividing Eden nevű sorozat konklúziója. Talán ez lett az egyik kedvenc borítóm az összes közül, még jobb lett volna mondjuk fekete háttérrel. Szinte ordít róla, hogy ez nem egy rózsaszín történet, én egy dark fantasyt nézek ki belőle. Az első rész fülszövege a következőképp néz ki:

Twins Carys and Andreus were never destined to rule Eden. With their older brother next in line to inherit the throne, the future of the kingdom was secure.

But appearances—and rivals—can be deceiving. When Eden’s king and crown prince are killed by assassins, Eden desperately needs a monarch, but the line of succession is no longer clear. With a ruling council scheming to gain power, Carys and Andreus are faced with only one option—to take part in a Trial of Succession that will determine which one of them is worthy of ruling the kingdom.

As sister and brother, Carys and Andreus have always kept each other safe—from their secrets, from the court, and from the monsters lurking in the mountains beyond the kingdom’s wall. But the Trial of Succession will test the bonds of trust and family.

With their country and their hearts divided, Carys and Andreus will discover exactly what each will do to win the crown. How long before suspicion takes hold and the thirst for power leads to the ultimate betrayal?

35843874Mivel itt is második részről van szó, ezért most is az első fülszövegét illesztem be, ami a Royal Bastards nevet viseli. A borítóban ismét a színek nyűgöztek le, érdekes kombináció, de pont jól sült el.

Being a bastard blows. Tilla would know. Her father, Lord Kent of the Western Province, loved her as a child, but cast her aside as soon as he had trueborn children.

At sixteen, Tilla spends her days exploring long-forgotten tunnels beneath the castle with her stablehand half brother, Jax, and her nights drinking with the servants, passing out on Jax’s floor while her castle bedroom collects dust. Tilla secretly longs to sit by her father’s side, resplendent in a sparkling gown, enjoying feasts with the rest of the family. Instead, she sits with the other bastards, like Miles of House Hampstedt, an awkward scholar who’s been in love with Tilla since they were children.

Then, at a feast honoring the visiting princess Lyriana, the royal shocks everyone by choosing to sit at the Bastards’ Table. Before she knows it, Tilla is leading the sheltered princess on a late-night escapade. Along with Jax, Miles, and fellow bastard Zell, a Zitochi warrior from the north, they stumble upon a crime they were never meant to witness.

Rebellion is brewing in the west, and a brutal coup leaves Lyriana’s uncle, the Royal Archmagus, dead—with Lyriana next on the list. The group flees for their lives, relentlessly pursued by murderous mercenaries; their own parents have put a price on their heads to prevent the king and his powerful Royal Mages from discovering their treachery.

The bastards band together, realizing they alone have the power to prevent a civil war that will tear their kingdom apart—if they can warn the king in time. And if they can survive the journey . . .

You may think you know the story. After a miserable childhood, penniless orphan Jane Eyre embarks on a new life as a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester. Despite their significant age gap (!) and his uneven temper (!!), they fall in love—and, Reader, she marries him. (!!!)

Or does she?

Prepare for an adventure of Gothic proportions, in which all is not as it seems, a certain gentleman is hiding more than skeletons in his closets, and one orphan Jane Eyre, aspiring author Charlotte Brontë, and supernatural investigator Alexander Blackwood are about to be drawn together on the most epic ghost hunt this side of Wuthering Heights.

Én ezt a megjelenést várom legjobban az összes közül, ugyanis a “sorozat” első része, a My Lady Jane, ami magyarul is kijött már a Maxim Kiadónál, levett a lábamról. S azért tettem idézőjelbe a sorozatot, mert nem összefüggő részekről van szó, tehát lehet olvasni az előző rész nélkül is (az már más kérdés, hogy nem érdemes kihagyni). Imádom a borítóját, pedig nem vagyok a karakter a borítón elrendezés híve, de mégis itt annyira jól működik. Az óriási, sárga cím és a kis feliratok pedig csak egyedibbé teszik.
