Last week we took a look at all of the YA releases of April and totally judged them by their cover. But which cover was voted the best?
Though most of the covers had a bit of a fight to keep their positions, the winner was decided pretty early. It’s a book that most YA fans have been angsting after for a very long time…
At number 3…’Cruel Crown’ by Victoria Aveyard with 155 votes!
In a world divided by blood – Red or Silver – two women tell the stories no one else knows. For Coriane of House Jacos, love comes at a terrible cost. In a secret diary, she recounts her heady courtship with the heir to the Silver throne, Prince Tiberias, and the dangers that lurk at the heart of the royal court. Captain Farley is at the forefront of the Red rebellion. As she plans an attack on the Silver capital, she discovers a secret that could sway the balance of power for ever. Two gripping stories. One fight for justice. Red vs Silver.
With a year-long wait ahead of us for the final book in the ‘Red Queen’ series we’re so glad for more of this world.
At number 2…’Passenger’ by Alexandra Bracken with 157 votes!
New York City, present day In one night, Etta Spencer is wrenched from everything she knows and loves. Thrown into an unfamiliar world, she can be certain of only one thing: she has travelled not just miles, but years from home. In 1776, Captain Nicholas Carter is tasked with delivering Etta to the dangerous Ironwood family. They are searching for something – a stolen object they believe only she can reclaim. Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by a desperate thief. But as Etta plays deeper into the Ironwoods’ game, treacherous forces threaten to separate her not only from Nicholas, but from her path home – for ever.
Time travel, mysterious objects and a gorgeous cover. We can’t wait to get stuck into this!
At number 1…’The Raven King’ by Maggie Stiefvater with 176 votes!
The fourth and final instalment in the spellbinding series from bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater. All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love’s death. She doesn’t believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure any more.
Yeah, you guessed it! We’re all salivating for ‘The Raven King’ and thankfully, there’s not too long left to wait!
