‘Cover Crush’ is a regular feature here at BCC. We love covers – they’re the first thing that catches our eye and will be the primary reason we pick up a book. This feature is where we highlight gorgeous covers of books we’ve seen either around the blogosphere or at the bookshop. These posts run sporadically, as soon as we see a cover we love, we’ll post it!
CAROLYN’S COVER CRUSH
I have the first book in this series on my shelf to read, ‘Mind Over Monsters‘ and I can’t wait to get my hands on this one too. I love the cartoon/comic affect of both covers. They look as though they could be funny as well as lots of action!

LAURA’S COVER CRUSH
This is a really striking book cover! The dark clouds, the lightening and the celestial light beaming through the crowds and of course the falling couple reaching out to one another. It’s the type of book cover that would make me want to pick it up if I saw it in a bookshop.
Tempest ~ Tempest #1
Release Date: January 2012
Publisher: St. Martins Griffin
The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun.
That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future.
Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities.
But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler. Recruit… or kill him.
Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world. (Goodreads)
