Cover Up: Yellow is for Lemons

This feature I will just gab, remark, feature book covers. 

I decided to do this one just a little different than I usually do. I had taken a couple of pictures of my orange books so I decided to post those and then feature a different set of yellow books.




Some of my other favorite yellow covers:
Fall for AnythingSmokeless Fire (Fire Spirits, #1)The Beekeeper's Apprentice (Mary Russell, #1)The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)The Rule of One (The Rule of One, #1)Black-Eyed SusansThe Killing JarBeautiful ChaosOnly RevolutionsHearts of Fire (Hearts, #2)Manners and Mutiny (Finishing School, #4)Boys Don't Knit (in Public) (Boys Don't Knit, #1)

When We Were Lost
When We Were Lost by Kevin Wignall
June 4th, 2019
When a plane bound for Costa Rica crashes in deep jungle, the tail section breaks free and nineteen teenagers miraculously survive. Joel Aspinall, son of a local politician and student rep on the school’s council, is quick to take on the mantle of leadership, to organize everyone until a rescue party arrives. But the plane was crashed on purpose, no one knows where they are and no rescuers are coming. To make things worse, Joel’s decisions lead to more people dying, and he’s determined to wait it out.

Tom Calloway didn’t want to be on this trip. Tom doesn’t want to bond with his classmates – he isn’t the bonding type. He’d rather they just left him alone, and he’s always been unfriendly enough that they’ve been happy to oblige. But that was before the crash. Now he finds himself building the friendships he’s always tried to avoid. And despite his determined efforts to be left alone, he begins to see that he might be the one to challenge Joel and pull off another miracle, by getting all the survivors to safety.
When We Were Lost, featuring elements of Lost and Lord of the Flies, is a novel of survival, of teenagers thrust into a hostile environment. It’s a novel of life and death and the razor-thin dividing line between them. And it’s a novel about finding a place for yourself in a world that’s infinitely complex.

Bright Burning Stars
Bright Burning Stars by A.K. Small
May 21st, 2019
Best friends Marine Duval and Kate Sanders have trained at the Paris Opera Ballet School since childhood, where they’ve formed an inseparable bond forged by respective family tragedies and a fierce love for dance. When the body of a student is found in the dorms just before the start of their final year, Marine and Kate begin to ask themselves what they would do to win the ultimate prize: to be the one girl selected to join the Opera’s prestigious corps de ballet. Would they die? Cheat? Seduce the most talented boy in the school, dubbed the Demigod, hoping his magic would make them shine, too? Neither girl is sure.
But then Kate gets closer to the Demigod, even as Marine has begun to capture his heart. And as selection day draws near, the competition—for the prize, for the Demigod—becomes fiercer, and Marine and Kate realize they have everything to lose, including each other
