Cover Reveal and Giveaway: ReAwakened by Ada Adams!

HI EVERYONE :)

If you've read my review of ReVamped, you'll have to know how much I loved it and Ada Adams! She's honestly one of the sweetest girls/authors/actresses who has a black belt in karate (cool, right?) that I've ever talked to. (She's also Canadian, which only makes her exponentially more awesome!)

That's why I'm so honoured to be able to take part in the cover reveal for the second book in the Angel Creek series, ReAwakened!

______

ReVamped (Angel Creek #1) 
By Ada Adams
Release Date: February 20, 2012
Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Chapters | B&N | Mimi's Review
A simple mission turned deadly.

Nineteen-year-old vampire Dawn has led a sheltered life within the confines of her father’s presidential headquarters. Upon being sent on a mission to revamp four goofy misfits into guardians of a peaceful little town of Angel Creek, Dawn believes that all her dreams have finally come true. What starts off as a simple task, turns into something unexpected, changing Dawn’s life forever and leading the action-loving, thrill-seeking vampire teen on a path of mystery, danger and intrigue.

When a human girl is kidnapped by a group of rogue vamps, Dawn discovers that there is more going on in Angel Creek than meets the eye. And it all connects to Ethan, the cute newcomer who seems too perfect to be true, Sebastian, the mysterious vampire with a turbulent past, and even Dawn herself. Dawn must not only succeed in revamping the troubled recruits, but must also prevent the vampire race from being overtaken by a malevolent villain who has a strange and obsessive fascination with her. As threat escalates, romance blooms, and ghosts from her past begin to surface, Dawn is sure of only one thing: her life will never be the same.
Here's a snippet from my review to remind you of the awesome: 

With a fantastic cast of characters, a fun yet mysterious storyline, and vampires you'll wish lived in your world, ReVamped is a refreshing new take on the supernatural creatures we all know and love! I could never stop smiling at the vampire lore Ada Adams created. It was creative, fun, original, AWESOME. Definitely a novel you'll finish in one sitting!

And to reveal the gorgeous cover for the second book...

ReAwakened (Angel Creek #2) 
By Ada Adams
Release Date: Fall 2012
Links: Goodreads
No summary available yet. 
MY THOUGHTS: I'm soooooooooooooo super-duper excited for this!!! I know that the first book was a fun and fantastic take on vampires, but Ada promised us that this one is darker, sexier, bloodier, and a whole lot more serious... which sounds great to me!

And this cover.... I LOVE IT! Don't you? The theme is blood, as you can probably tell by the colour choice! ;)

Plus, Ada has been sharing a bunch of teasers on her website about ReAwakened, and apparently there's an appearance by a whole new guy! I just wanted to share this one snippet with you in case you haven't seen it yet, and boy did I swoon :')

______

Teaser:
     “You finally understand what I’m saying, right? Or should I demonstrate the no clothes part for you?” he asked mischievously. My pulse quickened under his intense gaze.
     “No demonstrations,” I ordered, looking around the car for an escape route.I’d rather jump out of a moving vehicle than see you naked.”
     “Don’t lie to yourself, Dawn. I know for a fact that you’ve enjoyed the show at the pool. And I was only shirtless. Can you imagine—”
     “No. I can’t. Nor do I want to,” I snapped, trying to keep my thoughts from drifting to the memory of that night. “Anyway, you don’t have to worry about Sebastian and me. There will be no nudity on either of our parts.”
     “You say that now, but you won’t be able to resist your carnal urges.”
     “I’m not getting any urges. Trust me.”
     “Hmm…Is it because you’d rather get carnal with someone else?” He winked, smiling impishly.
     I groaned, partly annoyed by XXX’s cockiness, partly worried about the possibility of “getting carnal” in general. “Why don’t you pull over and let me out of the car. I’ll run the rest of the way home.”
     “Are you sure?”
     “I’m sure. I need to let off some steam.”
     “I bet you do,” XXX smirked. “Meet us at the house. Feel free to take a shower when you get in. I’d advise that it be a cold one.”
Oh my goodness!! *fans self* Apparently revealing his name is a spoiler, so Ada just calls him XXX for now. Are you as excited to figure out who this XXX guy is as I am??

______

Giveaway:

Because Ada is awesome, she's offering one ARC of ReAwakened for a random person who comments on a cover reveal post! So if you leave your thoughts, you're automatically entered into the draw. And as a girl who loved the first book, I really think you're going to want to get this sequel in advance! ;)

For those of you who don't win the ARC, I think ReAwakened will be available on Netgalley in September if you're interested. So look out for that! :)

About the Author:


Ada Adams - Goodreads | Website | Twitter

“Many people sing in the shower. I write scenes in my head and act them out.”

At the age of five, Ada read her first chapter book—Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren. Ever since that moment, she developed an intense passion for stories and characters found within the pages of literature.

In her career as an actress and a writer, Ada currently spends most of her days immersed in imaginary worlds. Much like the characters she enjoys playing and writing about, Ada is a martial artist with a Black Belt in Shotokan Karate. She is also a big proponent of lifelong learning, and has attained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (it aids in creating characters with unique quirks!) as well as a Master’s of Science in Education.

Ada strives to bring a fresh voice and perspective to fiction. She has been writing creatively for many years, and is an editor of a global fashion/literary magazine called VEUX. ReVamped is her debut novel.

She lives in Toronto, Canada, and enjoys adventurous nature hikes with her adorable puppies Cara and Oreo.

And that's all! Ada is also doing an hour-long Tweet-chat about everything related to her writing, Angel Creek, characters, non-spoilery parts, and etcetera on July 5th (today!!) at 5 p.m. EST. So it would be awesome if you dropped by and said hello (or hi, since I've always thought hello was a little too formal for me!) ;)

I hope that all my Angel Creek gushing is convincing you guys to start this series if you haven't already!

Have a wonderful day, you guys!

-Mimi

  1. ADA ADAMS! You sucked me into adoring her with your review (and into buying and loving ReVamped too) so it makes sense that you're the one to bring the sequel's cover to my attention... and holy flipping bleep, IT'S SUPER GORGEOUS! Is that Sebastian on the cover?! Well, he's even hotter than the hot vampire I imagined him to be! *swoon* (':

    Really excited for this release, Mimiiii!!! <333333 To meet this XXX guy also. He sounds VERY mysterious! *strokes chin* ;) I'm as Twitterless as you, but I think I'll have to stalk that chat anyways! Thanks, Mim (:

  4. HOT BOY ALERT! Wow! I'm loving the cover for ReAwakened. Mimi, can you please tell me how I call myself a vampire lover yet, I haven't read this series yet? What is wrong with me? I will correct this right away. I think I can get Revamped done before ReAwakened comes out. And, the author's background sounds amazing. I'm impressed.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. OMG!!! LOVE the teaser! *swoon* And that cover!*drool* ReVamped was just A-MAZING! The concept of it was TOTALLY refreshing in the vampire 'genre'. Thanks for this AWESOME cover reveal! :D

  6. I love the cover! I like how it is matching but different. It looks darker, sexier, bloodier, and a whole lot more serious! Sounds good! I am still dying to read the first one!

  7. Eye-catching covers! Haven't had the chance to read this yet. My pile's going to hit the ceiling... oh wait, it already has. Still, it's nice to read about new books!

    Thanks for sharing, Mimi =D

  8. Every time I read your blog I always end up being so jealous of all the beautiful covers. I dont know which one of these is more cool. The synopsis of this book sounds really interesting. The vamp genre really does need revamping!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. "Getting carnal" made me laugh. About the cover ... to be honest, not crazy about it. Too red. But that's just me.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ooh I love it! It's so nice to see guys on covers for a change. :D It looks very sexy and cool and that colour is amazing! And my my gosh. That teaser is HOT! This is a good reminder that I haven't read ReVamped yet. I must get round to it soon! :D

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. This sounds like a wonderful series Mimi! I always enjoy learning about new vampire books and writers who also like to act! The new cover is very pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Darker, bloodier, and sexier you say? That sounds promising! Love the red on the second cover, especially since I read that this one is going to be bloodier - seems fitting. Both of these covers are gorgeous, but I have to say I enjoy staring at this boy's face more than I do the girls. *pets cover*

    Thanks for sharing this Mimi!

  13. I haven't read the first one yet, but that snippet is definitely hot!

  14. Oooh pretty! I have ReVamped to read soon! I'm looking forward to it! :)

  15. I love how the covers complement each other so well-should look very pretty on a shelf together!

  16. I love these covers. Seriously. Purple is cool! Especially a deep one like on ReVamped. I haven't read it yet, but I really want to. Awesome post, Mimi! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I really did enjoy the first book since it was a lot of fun and I love the cover for Reawakened. :)
    Love how matching the books are !
    That teaser is very teasing. Ada is so mean to tease us readers like that. :P
    Can't wait ! :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. In reference to that teaser: "Oh, no he didn't, that poor girl" - LOL. Very fun teaser.

    And I've heard amazing things about Revamped and the covers for both Revamped & ReAwakened are stunning. Love them. Look forward to checking these out! :)

  23. "hello" really is a bit too formal, I agree. What a fun post. Thanks for sharing the new cover. I like that the two go together, even with being different. Very cool. Sounds like a fun series!

  24. THAT COVER IS GORGEOUS!!!!!!!! Do you know who he reminds me of? Flynn Rider. Yes, indeed, every girl's dream. And that little quote? Totally got me hooked. I'm planning on possibly reading ReVamped, even though I DON'T do vampires. (Even "The Hunt" was a little much for me...) We shall see - but because of your love for them, I'm definitely intrigued, so thanks! :D

    Love the post, Mimi! <3

  25. He's hot. Period. But I wish his eyes were a different color other than gray. But he's got that "i'm a badass, don't mess with me or my girl" look. :D

    thank you!

  26. I bought a copy of ReVamped a while ago (after your review), but I still haven't found the time to read it. I'm such a jerk. All the reviews have been positive, I know I'll like it. I just need my days to have more hours, please!
    Anyway, this cover is gorgeous too, just like the last one was, and that boy... oh, dear. I could stare at him for hours. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oooh... hot cover boy alert! Love the colors and the font! That shatter flower thingy is gorgeous!

    Love this line: “Hmm…Is it because you’d rather get carnal with someone else?”
    Gotta read this one.

    BTW enter me only if the giveaway is international!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the covers of both the books. They're simplistic, yet beautiful and eye catching.

    I plan on reading these someday so I'm going to skip the teaser. i don't really like anything being spoiled in books I'm planning to read. I'll just have to wait to know.

    And the author sounds kick ass and like so much fun! And though I never read Pippi, I was obsessed with her movies as a kid. I actually have a couple!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love both covers! I've heard good things about this series. I really want to read them! The guy on the new cover is very hot ;) and I love all of the red!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I can't wait for my copy of revamped to come in the mail because it sounds so good! I love the cover of the second one too =)

  34. I only just heard about ReVamped a little while ago but I'm very curious about it. I'm getting a bit fed up of vampire books but these two sound promising! I adore the covers, especially for ReAwakened... I like how the second book's gonna be hotter and darker - gimme gimme ;) Will be looking out for the first book now anyway!

    Thanks for the great post, Mimi<3

  38. The cover goes well with the first one. I love the guy's eyes! They are so pale and gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I really like both of the covers! :D They look awesome together too. I can only imagine how great they'd look IRL side by side.

    I can't believe I haven't started this series yet, especially considering Ada is CANADIAN! <3 That is so awesome. The series sounds great and so hopefully I'll be able to give them a shot someday.

    That excerpt... Guy sounds like a real charmer LOL. But I think... for research purposes... I'm going to need to see a picture of him to assess whether or not his attitude is justified. *remembers these are fictional characters* LOL who am I kidding? :) I would never acknowledge that. *shuts door to happy place filled with hot YA boys*

    Thanks for the great post, sis! <3

  41. Mimi, you have a way of convincing me to read ANYTHING! HEE. Which is a good thing, trust me. I just made sure to go and add the first book to my TBR because hello, how have I NOT read it yet?! I love the excerpt and the two glorious covers. Thanks for bringing this series to my attention!

    ReplyDelete
  42. wait a minute.... i just noticed it now... is the author the cover of the first book?!!!! so beautiful!! and the second book is yummy :)

  43. Covers really make or break a book, I think. And I love how these are opposite and look great ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hi
    I went to Goodreads to add ReAwakened to my TBR list and saw the two covers side by side and I think the visual effect is great!
