SPECIAL: Covers

Friends, countrymen, lend me your ears! You spoke. Penguin is listening. My wonderful editor, Jill Santopolo, has been kind enough to stop by and share a few words:

Hey, everyone. Editor Jill here. Andrea was nice enough to let me jump onto her blog to thank you all for your enthusiasm and feedback on the Wolfsbane jacket design. You’ve given us a lot to think about, and we’ll be having many Wolfsbane--related meetings here at Penguin headquarters in the coming weeks. Oh! And I have three Wolfsbane ARCs to give away today. Anyone who comments on this post with their favorite line from Nightshade will be entered to win. (Andrea assures me that she has a magical number generator that picks the winners fairly and squarely.)

More info to come! And yay Jill!! ARCs!! Leave a comment to be entered :) And please choose a favorite line that's SPOILER FREE.

Since this contest is tied into discussions about the new US cover designs it isn't open internationally (there will be future international giveaways).

All new cover info and updates will be posted here and on Twitter (@andreacremer)


Thanks you guys for your passion and commitment to the Nightshade series. Calla and the whole pack thank you.

UPDATE: Thank you for all the wonderful comments!! I'll take entries through Thursday and announce the winners Friday morning.

Another update: Due to the amazing response, Editor Jill is now giving away FIVE Wolfsbane ARCs! Huzzah!

  2. "Despair threatened to drag me down, but I fought back, clinging to a single, flickering thought. Shay loves me. He would risk everything to find his way back to my side and set me free. Because that's what love is, isn't it? It has to be."

    I loved the last passage. Now I am desperately awaiting WOLFSBANE.

  3. I'll be honest, I prefer the original covers or both books, but I like the new Nightshade cover as well. I'd be happier with the old Wolfsbane cover, mostly because it would match my copy of Nightshade, but at the end of the day, I could really care less.

    What matters the most is the story between the covers. Someone could hand me Wolfsbane with butterflies on the cover and I wouldn't care because it is WOLFSBANE and Calla, Shay, and Ren are right in there, waiting for me to read their story.

    Anyway, thank you so much for the giveaway Andrea & Jill!

    My favorite line from Nightshade is:
    “We are who we are. I have no desire to be something else. But right now I’m afraid of what it means for those who I care about.” ~ pg. 208

  4. Stacie @Whimsical Ficery - I removed your comment because it gives away a huge plot point. But I LOVE that line too. It's absolutely one of my favorites!!!! You'll still be entered in the contest and feel free to post another line if you'd like :) Thank you for understanding.

  5. First I love the cover and the ripped edges of the pages. (p. 451) "You're an alpha, Calla. Get it together."

    ReplyDelete
  6. My favorite line was the line that hooked me on the voice and the character. In the opening after the first big paragraph, Calla thinks:

    What the hell am I doing?

    I loved it. And I like the new covers.

  7. Loved Nightshade and can't wait for Wolfsbane (no matter what cover it has :))

    One of my favorite quotes from Nightshade,
    "A friend . . .sort of. Ren watches me like I'm a cookie jar he wouldn't mind being caught with his hand in. And he's not the one who'd pay for that theft."

  8. Egads, I'm currently 4,000 miles away from my copy of Nightshade! But I love the scene in the cafeteria where the two packs decide to sit together for the same time. Super awkward! Hope that counts as an entry :)

    I love both the covers! I would love it if my two hardcovers matched, though. Either way, can't wait for Wolfsbane!

  9. I loved the original cover. The new one is good but it can't even compare to the original

  10. My favorite quote : "The relationship of a girl and her favorite novel can be complex indeed."

    ReplyDelete
  11. I really hope somehow the old cover (the arc cover) ends up being the hardback cover. It's just so pretty and amazing.

    "His hand slipped over my shoulder beneath the cascade of my hair, his fingers pausing to cup the nape of my neck. He pulled me close; the strength of his arms set my blood on fire"-Page 69...*giggles*

    ReplyDelete
  12. I like both copies of the cover, they are both nice in their own way. I suppose my favorite line was "I told you to leave. I bared my teeth but couldn’t deny my sudden relief at her presence.

    I could never abandon you. Bryn kept pace easily. And you know I’ll never betray you." but I loved the whole book! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. hmm, okay. Since I can't quote the whole book ;)

    "It was becoming too familiar, this mixture of fear and pleasure whenever I thought about the new boy and wondered what he might be thinking of me."

  14. Gah! All my favorite quotes are spoilery Ren things. (I heart Ren!)

    How about this:
    "Without your nakedness to distract me, I'm remembering that we're in serious trouble. Hurry, please."

    Hehe.

  15. "As an alpha, I could help my packmates get the things they wanted, but there wasn't anyone who could do the same for me."

    LOVE this line- I think anyone who's in a position of leadership, who tries to help or protect the people around them, has felt like this at one time or another.

  16. I would buy Wolfsbane even if its cover was that of a paper bag! I loved Nightshade for its story, not the cover. :)

    And I will only give away a snippet of my favorite (and saddest) part.

    "I'm sorry I don't have anything for you."
    He moved close to me and took my hand, running his fingertip over the ring. "You do."

    ReplyDelete
  17. My absolutely favorite line - even though there are so many good ones - is from page 397:

    "You belong to yourself," he said quietly. "And I can wait for you to figure that out."

    By the way, I love all the covers made for this series. I can't pick which is best, they're all magical!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have too many but some of them are very spoilery, this one is funny:

    "A friend... sort of. Ren watches me like I'm a cookie jar he wouldn't mind being caught with his hands in."

    Thanks fir the giveaway, I loved Nightshade!!

  25. I have so many favorites, but one non-spoiler: "You do realize you just mixed Disney metaphors, right? Disney metaphors. Wow, Calla, now I'm just sad for you."

    As long as I get to read Wolfbane, I won't complain what the cover looks like, but I would have liked it to match my Nightshade hardcover.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I REALLY hope that means the hardcover of Wolfsbane will remain as the green cover. *fingers crossed*

    Anyway, there are SO many good lines and I love the whole book, but here goes:

    "A shock sparked through my body when the boy gripped my shoulder. He looked surprised but not at all afraid. That wasn't good. Heat flared along my skin where his fingers held me fast. I waited a moment too long, watching him, memorizing his features before I snarled and shrugged off his hand."

    Fate!

  31. Ahhh, I can't pick a favorite serious or romantic line, because they're all so amazing! So I'm going for funny instead. This one cracked me up (;

  33. Choosing a favorite Nightshade is almost impossible! There are so many great swoon-worthy quotes but I think I'll go with one that made me laugh-

    "I didn't realize I needed to point out that if we are attacked by a fire-breathing bitch, you can change forms."

    amyolsen1 at gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think the original covers are gorgeous, but I think the newer ones represent who Calla is a little better.

    As for my favorite quote:

    "Someone needs to talk to this fool about how to end a narrative."

    Haha, succinct and snarky - it's my favorite line from Shay :)

  43. I absolutely fell in love with the original Wolfsbane cover, and that's all I'll say :)

    I went with a line that wasn't used yet. I try to be different.

  44. I really like the - tagline? - 'She can control her pack. But not her heart.' Favourite quote is a really tough one but I found the following both hilariously funny and poignant;
    "Watership Down."
    "What?"
    "My favourite novel.
    He snorted. "Isn't that about rabbits?"
    "It's about survival"

    Although I realise the importance of book covers they're never the most important thing for me.

  45. My favourite could have to be....

    "You're an alpha, Calla. Get it together."

    ReplyDelete
  46. "This is where you belong, Calla.” He pulled me closer, tilting my chin up. “Be with me. Tell me it’s what you want.”
    I couldn’t tear my eyes from his. “What I want?”
    “Yes. Anything, everything you need, I’ll give you. Always. I promise. Just tell me one thing.”
    “What?”
    “That you want this, us.” His voice dropped so low I could barely hear him. “That someday you’ll love me.”
    My hands began to tremble where they rested around his neck. “Ren, you know we’re going to be together. We’ve both known that for a long time.”
    He gave me a hard look. “That’s not what I’m talking about.”
    “Why are you asking me this?” I tried to pull back, but he held me against him.
    The glimmer of a smile appeared on his lips. “Why not?”
    My temper flared. “Are you trying to say that you love me?”
    I meant it as a challenge rather than a serious question, but his eyes seemed to catch fire."

  47. "Just let me kiss you, Calla. You dont know how long I've wanted to. No one has to know."

    That without a doubt is my favorite line. It's totally swoon-worthy moment.

  48. Another vote for "What the hell am I doing?" It was just so fitting.

    I love both the new and the old covers, although I will admit that the old covers are definitely more YA. Especially the new Wolfsbane cover is too evocative, at least I think so.

  50. Hi!
    Here is one of my fave quotes: "Ma forteresse en coton n’y changerait rien : j’étais une guerrière et il était temps que je me comporte comme telle."
    I'm sorry, this is French! Guess what? My French friends and I loved (and still love) Nightshade (and can't wait for the French publication of Wolfsbane)!
    BTW, I love the new covers!

  54. People have already noted some great lines. I'll add this:
    I could smell his fear but was intrigued by the other, more-alluring scents beneath it. Clover, rain, sun-warmed fields. I leaned toward him, taking in the shape of his lips, the light in his pale green eyes. He wasn't looking at me like I was a freak. His eyes were full of fear and wanting. I wondered what he could see in my eyes.

  55. I love both covers!! I am not a too picky.

    This is more of a scene then a quote.. But hey I liked it!!

    "His hips pressed against my knees, opening them, pushing my skirt up my legs. I gripped his shirt, clinging to him so I wouldn't fall into the sink. His hands pushed into my lower back. I gasped as his body fitted against mine. Heat flooded my chest, my pelvis. I thought I would drown in it.

    "We cant"-His lips stopped my words. The kiss just made me dizzier. I dug my fingers into his shoulders."

  56. I'm gonna have to agree with whoever said, "Calla," Shay called from the hall. "Without your nakedness to distract me, I'm remembering that we're in serious trouble. Hurry, please."


    FAVORITE LINE EVER!!


    Also, I love both covers. Maybe you could use both of them, like on Across the Universe with the reversible cover. That way the readers could choose which one the like or switch it periodically like I've done. :)

  61. Choosing just one line was hard, but I like this one because it breaks the tension a bit after a tense scene:

    "Music doesn't soothe the savage beast, Cal," Shay said, dipping me so low my hair brushed the floor. "Laughter does."

    heartsbooks(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  62. I really like this line from Ansel about Bryn (fourth of the way through):

    "'Look, Cal. I love Bryn. Totally. Utterly. Everything that you read about in books and watch in the movies. She is all I want in this life.'"

    ReplyDelete
  63. One of the lines I found most striking wasn't particularly funny, or romantic... But I love it all the same.

    "I've been sent to kill you, Calla. Kill you and bring Shay back. Why am I here to kill you?"

    I loved the character of Ren throughout the book. And this line - this entire scene - epitomizes his struggle and just really hit home with me. I could feel his fear, desperation and confusion come through in those words. Needless to say, I'm hyped beyond belief for Wolfsbane.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I know lots of other have used it but I gotta say that it is just too funny picturing this scene!!

  67. My actually favorite line occurs on page 429, but the incredibly wonderful Ren. If you open to that page, you can probably guess which one it is. However, that felt kind of spoiler-ish so I'll pick another one of my favorites.

    "You do realize you just mixed Disney metaphors, right? Disney metaphors. Wow, Calla, now I'm just sad for you." ...<3 can I have an ansel?

    At fits I wasn't all for the covers, I've warmed up to them now though. Especially the wolfsbane one<3

  68. I LOVE the new design. SO spiffy & unique looking, they will jump off the shelves to new readers which is brilliant marketing if you ask me! ;)

    "A friend . . .sort of. Ren watches me like I'm a cookie jar he wouldn't mind being caught with his hand in. And he's not the one who'd pay for that theft."

  74. Aw! Someone already took my favorite, but here it is:

    "You know, most people don't return to sites of their near-death encounters. You might even say that wiser people would avoid them."

    I hope the "Enthusiasm" and "feedback" referred to is in response to wanting the old covers back. I agree that it's the story that counts, but a GORGEOUS cover doesn't hurt either! I want that green cover back!

  77. Ah, I have too many favorite quotes, & most of them are spoilers, so maybe I'll just go with this:

    "What the hell is this?" I asked.
    "The tango," he replied, guiding me across the floor with melodramatic sweeping steps.
    ...
    "It would be much better if I had a rose between my teeth. Wouldn't I be dashing?"
    I started to giggle. "That would be ridiculous."
    "Ridiculously dashing." He grinned. Even the bikers around the bar were laughing now, morphing their hardened faces from Sid Vicious to Santa Claus.

    I love Shay's natural ability to make people laugh, especially in situations like that. :)


    Thanks for the contest, I can't decide which Nightshade cover I love more! & the Wolfsbane cover is great, I'm dying to read it. July 26th can't come fast enough! :D

  83. I'm with Amy J on this one, I really loved:

    "Tell me you’ll come back for the pack. For me.” His eyes were bright with tears. “I don’t want to lose you."

    But I should add this is right up there too:

    "You do realize you just mixed Disney metaphors, right? Disney metaphors. Wow, Calla, now I'm just sad for you."

    Maybe it'd be simpler to insert most of the book?

    As for the covers, I like the new ones... for trade paperback. But for the hardcover edition of Wolfsbane, I much prefer the old one. It will look better next to my hardcover edition of Nightshade. Should both sets come out, I love the novel so much, I'd buy the hardcover editions AND paperback editions. That's just my opinion.

  86. “I’m a fighter, not a lover,” I gasped.
    “You can’t be both?” His smile made my knees buckle."

    Mostly because I talk about my doberman being a lover not a fighter. :) Struck a chord.

  89. I love both covers but I hope that the older ones stay for the hardcovers and the new ones will be for the paperbacks. I think the older ones are just gorgeous and hope y'all keep them!

    I know someone already out this qoute but I just love it! So I'll pu two.

    "A friend... sort of. Ren watches me like I'm a cookie jar he wouldn't mind being caught with his hands in."

    "The mouthful of turkey sandwich I’d bitten off caught in my throat when Ren rested his hand on my leg, his fingers exploring the curve of my thigh. I coughed and snatched the bottle of water from his other hand, taking several desperate swallows before swatting his fingers from my leg.
    “Are you trying to kill me?” I choked the words out. “Keep your hands to yourself."

    Thanks so much for the giveaways! I'm crossing my fingers to win!

    I'm a big fan of the original covers. So pretty and sparkly. CANNOT WAIT to read WOLFSBANE!

  91. I liked the original covers as well, the sparkliness. But the new ones are also amazing! I absolutely looove Nightshade's. It shows Calla as the girl and the wolf. Her two identities that make her whole! Very compelling!

    Saw someone else use this quote but it was my fave too!

    “We are who we are. I have no desire to be something else. But right now I’m afraid of what it means for those who I care about.” pg. 208

  95. My fav is from sexy Ren. "Just let me kiss you, Calla. You don't know how long I've wanted to. No one has to know."
    I also like later in that scene when he says he hopes the Keepers hadn't turned her into a nun, hehe.

    More Ren in wolfsbane???? Pleaseee!

  99. Thanks for the opportunity. The line I wrote down was: Ren says "This is only about love."awesome...make me melt. I love both sets of covers. Mostly I just want Wolfsbane in my hands as soon as possible.

  109. This one was ONE of my favorites:

    "Ansel, I'm not the sun, stop orbiting and get in here." - Calla (It made me LOL and I've used this in my everyday converstations)

    And this one was so sweet: "Wait.” Shay clasped my arm, turning me toward him. “Calla, you know, right?”
    “Know what?” I asked, caught in the mystery of his eyes.
    “That I love you too."

    Okay done with that haha. themoodyteenager@gmail.com

    P.s I preferred the original cover, it was very unique (just like the book).

  112. I think I have to agree with the others if we're going no-spoilers here:

    That sums Ren up so simply. ;)

    Oh and you guys do excellent covers. Can I have one of each please? lol

    ReplyDelete
  116. There are plenty of lines I could have chosen and plenty I wanted to choose but I decided on this one:

    "What if I could wait, putting my life on hold in this moment? What if I stole a little more time and caught a taste of what had been so long forbidden? Would it be so wrong? I would never see this stranger again. What harm could come from lingering here, from holding still and learning whether he would try to touch me the way I wanted to him to?"

  121. I prefer the old covers, because they have a uniqueness of their own. The new ones, especially Wolfsbane, are just... I know you shouldn't judge books by their covers, but if those had been the original books, I probably would've never picked them up.

    “I’m a fighter, not a lover,” I gasped.
    “You can’t be both?”

  122. Aw, that's so awesome! Thanks, Jill, for the snippet of info. As much as I like the new covers, I just think they're better suited to paperback. I really hope the hardback is going to be the lovely green one!

    And only one quote? Anything with Ren is basically my favorite, but I'll go with:

    "Ren watches me like I'm a cookie jar he wouldn't mind being caught with his hands in."

    But, really, I'd like to just quote the whole book. ;D

    I really love the original cover design for Nightshade. I really don't like one Wolfsbane cover better than the other. I just think it would be nice for the covers of the series to match. I have a copy of Nightshade and it would look weird if the rest of the series doesn't match.

  139. "From behind me, I heard the lone cry of a wolf. The howl echoed as it rose toward the full moon, a sound full of agony and irreparable loss."

    I like the imagery that this line embodies and the sorrow that Ren must feel with Calla leaving.

    Also, on the cover issue I think that they should keep the same style and use the new covers for the paperback editions.

  141. Thanks for this awesome opportunity! I think that the new covers are beautiful and more appealing to an adult audience. However, I do prefer the original cover. There is something mystical and captivating about the originals. The first Wolfsbane cover makes me eager to read it – there are so many emotions and hints to the possibilities of the book. (As if suggesting Calla has you in her crosshairs.) I would choose to have my hardback copies match but truthfully I don’t care what it looks like! I will read it and love it either way. :)

    My favorite line is simple, honest and emotional – pertaining to many different dynamics of Calla’s life and relationships. For me, it offers hope and some insight to the raw tenderness and deep rooted feelings Ren has for Calla and his pack.

    Page 429 “This is only about love.”

  149. I love Wolfsbane's two covers, both are pretty sweet, but I think the first one goes perfect with the hardcover, the second one goes perfect with the paperback. I was really looking forward to having Wolfsbane on my shelf next to Nightshade, all pretty and green!

    I've always always always loved the first sentence:

    "I'd always welcomed war, but in battle my passion rose unbidden."

    Thank you for the giveaway, Jill and Andrea, and thank you for listening and having a meeting about this. It's nice to know that you do listen. :)

  150. Based on the first cover, I thought it was going to be a vampire book. I did think it was pretty though. The second one lets you know it's not. I do love them both.

  151. I don't have time to go like, searching through my book at the minute, but I love the line that comes right after this one;
    "I didn't realize I needed to point out that if we are attacked by a fire-breathing bitch, you can change forms."
    I think it does something like
    'Right, fire-breathing bitch eaquals changing shay' or something like that. hope that counts. :D

    Too dirty? Sorry, but you did say favorite. :)

  155. I was sad to hear about the cover chagee--Nightshade had one of my favorite covers *and* favorite book designs (the chapter pages, the torn edges) :)

    I think my favorite line might be the first because it's what drew me to the book first:

  159. Hmm, I have so many favorite quotes but I'll go with this one:

    "Please believe me, Shay. You have to know how much I care about you."

    I'm really looking forward to Wolfsbane. I like the original covers better than the new ones, but the new ones are still cool and intriguing. Some of the others mentioned maybe using both sets of covers, (for the paperback and hardcover editions) and I think that'd be a good idea!

    ReplyDelete
  160. I will keep crossing my fingers that the original Wolfsbane cover will be used for the actual publication in July!

    Since my favorite line is very spoiler-ific, I'll just say that I absolutely loved everything at the end of Chapter 33, my favorite chapter of the entire book. I found it to be very englightening about Ren and his feelings towards Calla.

    Thank you for the chance to win an ARC!

  162. I already have an ARC of Wolfsbane so I'm not entering but I just wanted to say that even though I like the new covers - I LOVE the old ones. They definitely catch my eye more than the new ones and I think they need to match. :)

    And then he was kissing me. His lips moved over mine in a slow caress, hands running over my body, every touch begging me to stay.

  165. I loved Nightshade so much!! I read it in like one day. I'm so looking forward to the arrival of Wolfsbane. It's going to be great. :D

    My favorite line:
    Shay loves me. He would risk everything to find his way back to my side and set me free. Because that's what love is, isn't it? It has to be.

    Without this line the book wouldn't have been the same. It's so beautiful. I love it. :)

  166. I prefer to read series books all at once. I have not read Nightshade, however I do have the novel, I pre-ordered it. I entered your contest and posted a photo of Nightshade in the wild. :)

  167. I liked the original covers for both Nightshade and Wolfsbane.
    I finished Nightshade and loved it. I am anxiously awaiting the release of Wolfsbane.

    I don't have my book with me, but my favorite part was when Shay said something along the lines of "You do know that I love you.". I thought it was important that she heard that after she declared her feelings, but before they headed out into danger.

    ReplyDelete
  168. I'll be honest and say I prefer the original covers. BUT it's what's on the inside that counts, right?

    I like this one, as well as a million others.

  172. I love this quote because it shows the softer side of Ren (and makes the Team Ren/Team Shay debate that much harder).

    “Please don’t do this,” he whispered. “Come back with me. We’ll talk to Logan; there has to be an explanation. The Keepers need us; we’re the alphas. We’ll figure this out. They won’t hurt you. I won’t let them."

    It would have sounded better with the sentence in front, but I didn't want the quote to sound spoiler-y. :/

    Thanks for the chance to win an ARC! I've been dying for it for so long!

  175. What a huge response! I love both covers... and I think we will all be a bit nostalgic with the old one... but that doesn't mean that we don't want more people to pick this great book up! I would love one of the ARCs... So, here is my fave quote... It's about my fave male character, ANSEL!
    (Bryn)"So did you tell Ansel I have a thing for John Donne?"
    (Calla)"You have a thing for John Donne?" I snorted.
    (Bryn)"Wow," she murmured. "Your little brother is good."

  176. took me a while, but i finally found it.

    "I can't believe they don't allow outside drinks in here," I said. "How am I supposed to read this much without coffee?"

    i'm so excited to have a chance to win an ARC! thanks for the opportunity! :)

  178. "Ren watched us as he leaned casually against the table, holding a pair of scissors. I'd never seen a classroom tool look so dangerous."

    I love this quote because it was at this point when I realized that Ren--badass, heart-stopping, gorgeous Ren--was jealous. <3

  179. "He leaned toward me, murmuring, “I think one-on-one sounds better, don’t you?”
    His teeth gently caught my earlobe. All my muscles turned to liquid. I dropped the stirring rod and grabbed the edge of the table so I wouldn’t collapse."

    I really enjoyed this one it's a good representation of all the tension in this book!

    "Ren watched us as he leaned casually against the table, holding a pair of scissors. I'd never seen a classroom tool look so dangerous."

    this one is so funny, i love Ren!
    Im so excited about wolfsbane, the cover is so awesome!

  180. I am a huge Ren fan. I think the new covers look very adult, though. Not as YA as the gorgeous original covers.

    My favorite quote is a naughty one from Ren. "Let’s skip the waiting part."

  181. Apparently I raffled away my NIGHTSHADE arc, and I didn't write down any quotes :/ I'm getting the hardcover today, though! @Lyndsey and all the original cover fans, I'm with you. Penguin, please don't do what you (i.e. Puffin) did with Ranger's Apprentice and changing the covers halfway through! :((( As a collector, I'm thoroughly peeved. I'll either have to hide the first 4 or the last 6! Alternatively, I'd pay extra to get a cover that matches the ones I already have. I'm totally serious :D (also, please don't count me in the contest--I have WOLFSBANE :)

  182. "I blushed when he stepped behind me, encircling my waist with his arms.
    His lips brushed against my ear. “I believe the answer that will not get me in trouble with you is: the happiest day of my life. Or something along those lines. Definitely not the end of my carefree days or when I get a ball and chain. Hmmm, I’m just realizing that I’m going to have to buy you birthday and anniversary presents at the same time. What a pain."

  183. Yay!! ARCs!! :) Thanks for the chance to win one!! I can't wait to read Wolfsbane!!!

    Here is a favorite quote that gives nothing away:
    I grabbed Sabine's shoulder. "If you stick me again, I'm going to make your head my personal pin cushion."

    hehehe :D

  184. My favourite line is "Come on, Mowgli. Let's go kill Bambi," because I think it's just plain funny and something you can just see Calla saying. I love the hunting scene because it reminds me of Lady and the Tramp. I reviewed the book here- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfgRLIS7ceo

  185. Please keep the original theme for the hardcovers and use the new theme for just the paperbacks. The originals are just so beautiful! I like the new ones but the originals are better.

    One of my favorite quotes is: "Ah, the witching hour. Best time for dancing."

  186. I too love the cookie jar quote! Hahah:

    "A friend... sort of. Ren watches me like I'm a cookie jar he wouldn't mind being caught with his hands in."

  187. I can't wait for Wolfbane to be released. I like both covers.

    One of my favorite quotes is:

    "This isn't about love. It's about survival. No Calla. His voice became hushed. This is only about love and then he was kissing me."

    ReplyDelete
  188. "You do realize you just mixed Disney metaphors, right? Disney metaphors. Wow, Calla, now I'm just sad for you."

    Just because this part made me laugh so loud. I had lots of other faves that were spoilerish. :(

  189. I loved Nightshade and I'm proud to say I'm Team Ren all the way! I love the new covers. I'm so jealous that people will get the new cover of Nightshade. I love the whole wolf and Calla thing. Ugh. I wished waited, but I'm too stubborn and impatient to wait so I got the old hardback cover. I still like the old cover but the new one is incredible! Anyway, since I'm Team Ren my favorite quote is from him.

    "I’d rather have you on my own terms.”
    I'd die and go to heaven is Renier Laroche ever said that to me! lol ;)

  190. I have to admit, I picked up Nightshade because of the beautiful cover! I love the original Wolfsbane cover too. I don't like the new ones as much, but that won't stop me from getting it :)

    "Serves you right, Romeo.", "If you weren't Emile's son, your pelt would be already nailed over a fireplace belong to the father of some brokenhearted girl".

  191. I am really excited for the chance to win an ARC. One thing I love about Andrea's writing is how descriptive it is. But I also like how learned she is. Therefore I find I really like Ren's statement
    "...If you;re a real student if literature, and I mean the good stuff--Chaucer, Shakespeare--you figure out that only souls who truly reflect each other make good love matches."

  192. "I'd always welcomed war, but in battle my passion rose unbidden." page 1

    I always thought that was such a cool opening!

  194. "You can't tell me that you're going to ... mate" -- he choked on the word -- "with Ren Laroche because you've been ordered to."

    Sounds so crude... especially out of context.

    LOVED THE 1ST WOLFSBANE COVER!!!

  195. I love the original covers but as many have said I will buy the book no matter what cover it has because of the story. It would be nice to have the hardcovers with the original covers and the paperbacks with the new covers so that the sets can match.

    "Calla," Shay called from the hall. "Without your nakedness to distract me, I'm remembering that we're in serious trouble. Hurry, please."

  197. Favorite line: "Ansel, I'm not the sun, stop orbiting and get in here."

    I liked the old cover. I'm hoping it's released for the hardcover version at least.

  198. My favorite line from Nightshade is spoken by Ren and Calla pg. 68

    "I thought opposites attracted,"

    "No. That's pop culture drivel. If you're a real student of literature, and I mean the good stuff-Chaucer, Shakespeare-you figure out that only souls who truly reflect each make good matches...If they find each other, that is.

  199. "Where are you from?” I started with what I thought was an easy question.
    “Everywhere,” he grumbled.
    “Everywhere?” I stared into the blackness of the espresso. “I don’t think I’ve been there."

    that's one!! and the other

    "Calla," Shay called from the hall. "Without your nakedness to distract me, I'm remembering that we're in serious trouble. Hurry, please." page 436"
