Welcome to Hot New Titles! Guys, I can not contain my fangirlin’ because this week had a great new releases like Sever, The Indigo Spell and Pivot Point! Not only that, but once again the publishers, especially HarperTeen, just couldn’t help themselves by unloading SO MANY cover reveals. A few of my favorites are covers for The Chaos of Stars, Black Out and the coolest Middle Grade cover ever for The Creature Department. What’s even more awesome? Scholastic is redesigning the Harry Potter covers for its 15th Anniversary, starting with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Gah! 15 years already? Man, I feel old. I think I need a pick-me-up. To the book store!
