Penguin between the lines just revealed the cover of the first book in Ally Condie's Matched trilogy.
Isn't it beautiful? Though I loved the red and the green one as well I think this is even prettier.
You don't know what I`m talking about? Here is the Summary of the first book Matched, taken from Goodreads:
Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate... until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.
The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.
Reached will be the third and final book and it will be published on November 13th.
What do you think about the new cover?

You can find most of the English classic literature in those posts so I found, why not do something like this for German classics? You may not know them but I can tell you these guys are definitely swoon worthy:
- Lukas Leander: Well, actually he is not a classical character, but I started crushing on him immediately when we “met” the first time. I was twelve and he came to my mind as soon as I thought of “literary crush material”. Lukas is the younger brother of Laura which has her own book series by Peter Freund. He is intelligent and a true nerd. So honestly why should I not fall for a blond guy like him?
So these are the five most crushable German literary guys. You know one of them? Who are your literary crushes? And don’t forget to visit Sparklife, since it has the best blog series you can possible think of!
I hope I’ll have time to post another list like this, with more “global” characters :D But I do believe all those books have been translated into English. So maybe you agree with me here J
Best wishes and a lot of great book characters too crush on
