Cover Lover – 7 New Titles

I have to say, I like this batch of covers. I grabbed most of them at Goodreads, and a couple at Amazon, too. Let’s start with the YA titles first, for a change. The first book of Aimee Carter‘s upcoming Blackcoat Rebellion series, called Pawn, will be released on November 26th.
