Cover Trend: Important Necklace

Here's a cover trend I've noticed. A necklace. A super important necklace.

Silver Phoenix 
by Cindy Pon 
Greenwillow Books 
April 2009 (cover from 2011 paperback)

No one wanted Ai Ling. And deep down she is relieved - despite the dishonor she has brought upon her family - to be unbetrothed and free, not some stranger's subservient bride banished to the inner quarters. But now, something is after her. Something terrifying - a force she cannot comprehend. And as pieces of the puzzle start to fit together, Ai Ling begins to understand that her journey to the Palace of Fragrant Dreams isn't only a quest to find her beloved father but a venture with stakes larger than she could have imagined... -from Goodreads

The Reckoning 
by Kelley Armstrong

We’ll be gone soon anyway, back to rescue those we’d left behind and to take out the Edison Group... or so we hope. -from Goodreads

Soon, the town's little memory problem has turned into a full-on epidemic.

by Julie Berry

In a secluded village, magic sparkles on the edges of the forest. There, a young girl named Evie possesses unusually strong powers as a healer. A gypsy's charms—no more than trinkets when worn by others—are remarkably potent when Evie ties them around her neck. Her talents, and charms, have not escaped the notice of the shy stonemason's apprentice. But Evie wants more than a quiet village and the boy next-door. When the young king's carriage arrives one day, and his footman has fallen ill, Evie might just get her chance after all... -from Goodreads
