I’ve decided to write a few of these posts every now and again, talking about the latest cover releases, book releases, and any other bookish news.
Yesterday, the cover of The Elites by Natasha Ngan was revealed and…it is GORGEOUS! I will definitely be buying this book about twenty times because, not only is the cover to die for, it sounds amazing from the summary.
‘There is a rumour that the Elites don’t bleed.’
Hundreds of years into the future, wars, riots, resource crises and rising sea-levels have destroyed the old civilisations. Only one city has survived: Neo-Babel, a city full of cultures – and racial tension. Fifteen-year-old Silver is an Elite, a citizen of Neo-Babel chosen to guard the city due to her superior DNA. She’d never dream of leaving – but then she fails to prevent the assassination of Neo Babel’s president, setting off a chain of events more shocking and devastating than she could ever have imagined. Forced to flee the city with her best friend Butterfly (a boy with genetically-enhanced wings), Silver will have to fight to find her family, uncover the truth about Neo-Babel and come to terms with her complicated feelings for Butterfly.
The Elites is published in September by Hot Key Books
The second cover reveal that has happened recently is for Ally Carter’s last book in the Gallagher Girls series, United We Spy. I’ve loved the whole series so far, so I’ll definitely be reading this one.
Cammie Morgan has lost her father and her memory, but in the heart-pounding conclusion to the best-selling Gallagher Girls series, she finds her greatest mission yet. Cammie and her friends finally know why the terrorist organization called the Circle of Cavan has been hunting her. Now the spy girls and Zach must track down the Circle’s elite members to stop them before they implement a master plan that will change Cammie—and her country—forever.
United We Spy is published in the UK in September by Orchard Books
My Bookish News:
I’ve recently started reading the Harry Potter series for the first time (review to come on Friday) and have whizzed through them. The next one I have to read is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix which I’m hoping to start very soon.
I’ve also started After Eden by Helen Douglas, but am not through enough to comment so far. I’m optimistic though!
Has anything excited you this week? Let me know in the comments!

You’re right, the cover and blurb for The Elites sounds amazing. Definitely one for the TBR. I loved the HP series. Glad you’re enjoying them too.

I love the cover for the final Gallagher Girls! I read the first book before the were published over here and didn’t continue with them. I need to change that.
SO glad you’re still loving HP!

Woah! I have never heard of The Elites ever before and now that I am aware of it, I need it. >____< Who could ask more with assassins mentioned? You are starting HP! I am still not on the fanbus yet. TT ^ TT I am worried I wouldn't love it as much as you and many have. I love this feature! 😀

The Elites sounds AMAZING (a love interest called Butterfly? Rather intriguing!) and I CANNOT WAIT FOR UNITED WE SPY! I ADORE the Gallagher Girls series and am SO excited for the final book! Though really sad too ’cause once it’s over… IT’S OVER! :'( My boy, Zach?! :’)
Great post – I love bookish news posts! 😀

I’m actually really jealous of the model on The Elites’ cover’s hair. It’s so straight and perfect and omggg!!! I think the United We Spy US version of the cover is different than the UK version but I love them both nonetheless 🙂
Yay I’m happy you’re starting Harry Potter I loved that series as a kid! Hope you enjoy Order of the Phoenix it’s definitely the longest one!
