99th Post -- Book covers & Book Memes!!

So, this is my 99th blog post, so I thought I'd do something a little different. Hope you enjoy!

 BOOK COVERS
Some readers would not be aware of this, but Australians occasionally get different covers than the US. In some even rarer cases, these covers differ from the UK covers.

Penguin Australia does this from time to time.
Oh, that crazy little penguin. Don't know what he'll do next!!




Here are just a few upcoming titles that have new covers.
Comment below with your thoughts!

Yes, the cover for Matched is the UK cover, but how could I not add it?

 Matched - Ally Condie / Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins
The Unidentified by Rae Mariz / Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld


Also, I'd love to discover some YA fiction from Aussie authors, because truthfully, much to my embarrassment, I don't know of all that many. So give me suggestions!!

(I've already got Cath Crowley and Marina Marchetta on my checklist.)
