As capas mais bonitas da literatura estrangeira

Estive reparando como as capas dos livros estrangeiros e vi que são maravilhosas e como eu morro de vontade de ter todos eles.
Separei algumas das capas mais lindas que eu já vi e suas sinopses (a maioria em inglês -eu poderia ter traduzido, mas como é muita coisa eu resolvi não fazer haha)

Chloe’s older sister, Ruby, is the girl everyone looks to and longs for, who can’t be captured or caged. When a night with Ruby’s friends goes horribly wrong and Chloe discovers the dead body of her classmate London Hayes floating in the reservoir, Chloe is sent away from town and away from Ruby. But Ruby will do anything to get her sister back, and when Chloe returns home two years later, a precarious and deadly balance waits. As Chloe flirts with the truth that Ruby has hidden deeply away, the fragile line between life and death is redrawn by the complex bonds of sisterhood. Imaginary Girls is a masterfully distorted vision of family reminiscent of Shirley Jackson, laced with twists that beg for their secrets to be kept.
Imaginary Girls - Nova Ren Suma

Sometimes there's no turning back. Amber's life is spinning out of control. All she wants is to turn up the volume on her iPod until all of the demands of her family and friends fade away. So she sneaks off to the beach to spend a day by herself. Then Amber meets Cade. Their attraction is instant, and Amber can tell that he's also looking for an escape. Together they decide to share a perfect day: no pasts, no fears, no regrets. The more time that Amber spends with Cade, the more she's drawn to him. And the more she's troubled by his darkness. Because Cade's not just living in the now--he's living each moment like it's his last.

The Day Before - Lisa Schroeder

"Since the age of fourteen, Emerson Cole has seen strange things – dead things – swooning Southern Belles, soldiers, and other eerie apparitions of the past. She’s tried everything to get rid of the visions: medication, counseling, asylums. Nothing’s worked. So when Emerson's well-meaning brother calls in yet another consultant from a mysterious organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to give it one last try. Michael Weaver is no ordinary consultant. He's barely older than she is; he listens like no one she's ever met before; and he doesn't make her feel the least bit crazy. As Emerson ventures deeper into the world of the Hourglass, she begins to learn the truth about her past, her future--and her very life. A seductive time-slip novel that merges the very best of the paranormal and science fiction genres, Myra McEntire’s Hourglass is a stunning debut from an author to watch." HOURGLASS is a timeslip romance in which a girl who sees ghosts meets a boy who knows the truth about what her visions really are, and he alone can unlock the secrets of her past.

Hourglass - Myra McEntire

Willow passou a maior parte de sua vida como ajudante de sua mãe em um popular programa de hipnotismo em Las Vegas. Então, quando ela e sua mãe voltam para sua cidade natal no sul para um recomeço, ela acha que vive uma vida de normalidade silenciosa. Só que sua nova vida acaba por ser nada, mas, quando ela por sorte hipnotiza Quinton, o cara mais gostoso do time de futebol, e por quem cai loucamente de amores, ele também acaba profundamente caindo de amores por ela. Mas o que começou como uma maneira inocente de fazer o seu melhor amigo, Max, ter inveja, logo começa a sair de controle, e Willow começa a se perguntar se a mente - e mais importante, o coração - é algo que você pode realmente controlar.

Crush Control - Jennifer Jabaley

The fifty contestants in the Miss Teen Dream Pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and complete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eye liner.
What’s a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program – or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan – or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?
Welcome to the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Your tour guide? None other than Libba Bray, the hilarious, sensational, Printz Award-winning author of A Great and Terrible Beauty and Going Bovine. The result is a novel that will make you laugh, make you think, and make you never see beauty the same way again.

Beauty Queens - Libba Bray

My name is not Mara Dyer, but my lawyer told me I had to choose something. A pseudonym. A nom de plume, for all of us studying for the SATs. I know that having a fake name is strange but trust me, it's the most normal thing about my life right now. Even telling you this much probably isn't smart. But without my big mouth, no one would know that a seventeen-year-old who likes Death Cab for Cutie was responsible for the murders. No one would know that somewhere out there is a B student with a body count. And it's important that you know, so you're not next.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin
