Waiting on Wednesday: Cover Lust Edition

I don't normally post Waiting on Wednesday posts (at least not on a regular basis) but there have been so many lust worthy covers out recently, I had to share!!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Wither by Lauren DeStefano March 2011

This cover goes into the cover dresses I want in real life pile

The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell March 2011
Another dress I love-I like this cover much better than the other one I've seen floating around!

I've been waiting for this book forever-I've serious got a waiting list already at my library of girls who want to read it! I love this new cover!
I've been wanting to read this since I heard Melissa was writing it which seems like forever ago-can't wait to read it!
There's lots of early buzz around this one, and author Veronica Roth is awesome! She lives in Chicagoland (and I used to live there!) and I hear the book is set in the city-love when that happens! And she posted an awesome post about #SpeakLoudly!
