Cover Reveal: The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan

Today, there's a pretty sweet cover that just needs to be seen by your eyes that I have the pleasure of revealing! I love it and it just makes me want to stare at it all day long. Plus, just imagine how gorgeous it would be in real life, right in your hands!? Eep! Oooh, and not only do I have the cover to share with all of you guys, but there's also a pretty awesome giveaway that everyone from anywhere can enter--I mean, as long as you can read! ;) And because I know you're just squirming like cray to see this cover, I won't keep you reading anymore of my nonsense blabbing.

Title: The Beautiful and the Cursed
Author: Page Morgan
Publisher: Delacorte Press/Random House
Release Date: May 14th, 2013

Fans of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series and Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy will devour The Beautiful and the Cursed, a wholly original interpretation of gargoyle lore.

It was bizarre and inexplicable, but after it happened no one spoke of it and Ingrid Waverly was forced to leave her life in London behind. She had to trade a world full of fancy dresses and society events for Paris with her mother and younger sister, Gabby.

In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house her twin brother Grayson found for them isn't a house at all. It's an abbey. A creepy, old abbey with a roof lined in stone gargoyles that one could almost mistake for living, breathing creatures.

And Grayson is missing.

Yet no one seems to be concerned about Grayson's whereabouts save for Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant who has some secrets of his own. There's one secret about the city that he can't keep hidden, though. There's a murderer on the loose. And every day Grayson is missing means that there's less of a chance he's alive.

Ingrid is sure her twin isn't dead--she can feel it deep in her soul--but she knows he's in grave danger, and that it's up to her and Gabby to find him before all hope is lost.

Only the path to him is twisted—and more deadly than she could ever imagine.

I'm ashamed to say that I haven't read the Mortal Instruments trilogy or the Gemma Doyle series yet but The Beautiful and the Cursed sounds like such an awesome and one of a kind read that I seriously can't wait for it and I mean, look. at. that. cover! I just want it on my shelf for its beauty--no joke!

So, tell me, tell me, tell me! What do you think of this cover? Don't you just want to read it, stat? And fine, you can get on my case for not reading those two other amazing series! ;) Just you know, leave me some comment love!
