Cover News: Lola and the Boy Next Door and Crossed

Yesterday Stephanie Perkins and Ally Condie revealed covers for their books! So take a look and let me know which ones are on your to read list.

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Release Date: 09/29/11

In this companion novel to Anna and the French Kiss, two teens discover that true love may be closer than they think.

For budding costume designer Lola Nolan, the more outrageous the outfit—more sparkly, more fun, more wild—the better. But even though Lola’s style is outrageous, she’s a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins move back into the house next door.

When the family returns and Cricket—a gifted inventor and engineer—steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.

Crossed by Ally Condie
Release Date: 11/01/11

In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky — taken by the Society to his certain death — only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia’s quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander — who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia’s heart — change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.


  1. Love the covers. The first one is so cute. :)

  2. I read the first one from Condie, wish we didn't have to wait so long for the release date...! What an interesting cover.

  3. I love the covers of both! Just finished Anna & the French Kiss today so I can't wait to read another Stephanie Perkins book!

  4. I just posted about these covers today too cause I love them both soo much!! Can't wait to see them in person :)

  5. I can't wait to read Crossed!!! I'm not familiar with the other one, but it looks good too. :-)

  6. Ooh, I haven't read ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS yet, but I hear it's wonderful. Along with the great things I've heard about MATCHED. :D

    Can't wait to read them, so I'll be ready for these two awesome looking books.

  7. Can't wait for both of these! Love how the Matched series is going to match the pills.

  8. I read Anna and the French Kiss in January and was SO excited to find out there there would be 2 companion books! The cover of Lola and the Boy Next Door is adorable! I'm very anxious for this book to come out!
    Also, the boy on the cover is YUMMY!

  9. I loved Anna and the French Kiss, so I'm sure I'll like Lola as well! And while I didn't particularly enjoy Matched, Crossed seems a little better. Although, let's be honest: I'd buy it just for the cover!
