Tantalizing Future YA Releases!

Tantalizing Future YA Releases is a weekly feature where I showcase up andcoming YA covers. In addition, 'The Blast from the Past' section focuses on previously released books that still deserve a voice after a few years of silence. If you are inspired by this meme, giving credit will be greatly appreciated.

All titles are linked to GoodReads, if summaries cannot be found I will use Amazon or the publisher's website. Also, please note that covers may not be final. If changes occur I will replace the covers with the new versions.

*Blast From The Past*

The Explosionist by Jenny Davidson
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: July 1, 2008
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 464

Summary: A series of mysteries. An explosion of truths. The Explosionist: Someone sets off a bomb outside fifteen-year-old Sophie's boarding school, but no one can figure out who. The Medium: Soothsayers and séance leaders are regular guests at her great-aunt's house in Scotland, but only one delivers a terrifying prophecy, directed at Sophie herself. The Murder: When the medium is found dead, Sophie and her friend Mikael know they must get to the bottom of these three mysteries in order to save themselves—even as the fate of all Europe hangs in the balance. Set in a time of subversive politics, homegrown terrorism, and rapidly changing alliances, The Explosionist is an extraordinarily accomplished debut novel for teens that delivers a glimpse of the world as it might have been—had one moment in history been altered.

The Explosionist was truly amazing! It's a wonder it didn't get the same attention as some other books out there, so thanks for featuring it!

I love this feature! So many pretty covers. I like the new paperback cover for Crusade and the new cover for Siren. :) Prettier than the old ones, though I still think the old ones are pretty too.

Wow, Harlequin Teen sure knows how to do their covers. I read Legacy when it came out via the Amazon Encore and that cover sucked in comparison to this one!
