Shadow of Night (All Souls Trilogy #2) by Deborah Harkness
Shortly after Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont timewalk to London, 1590, they discover that the past may not provide a safe haven after all. Reclaiming his former identity as poet and spy Matthew Roydon, the vampire falls back in step with a group of radicals known as the School of Night who share dangerous ideas about God, science, and man. Many of his friends are unruly daemonsn - the creative minds of the age who walk the fine line between genius and madness - including playwright Christopher Marlowe and mathematician Thomas Harriot. Matthew, himself, is expected to continue to spy for Queen Elizabeth, which puts him in close contact with London's cutthroat underworld. 
Together, Matthew and Diana scour the bookstalls and alchemical laboratories of London where they follow the elusive trail of Ashmole 782 - and search for the witch who will teach Diana to control her powers

Cover this week: 

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl. 
This cover is very simple and that is exactly what I love about it. There's one color that draws focus to the title of the book with the big font and the color. The background is simple, but still have little details with black and gray tones.

You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser:
(Took a longer one, couldn't help myself :P)

I opened my car door and tried hard not to think about the makeup sex they were probably going to have in his office. I couldn’t think about it and remain calm. My attraction to Woods was a door I needed to close. He was a friend only. The bitter taste in my mouth as I drove away and headed toward the condo only got stronger. I knew how it felt to be touched by Woods.

My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
I think this cover is so cool! The white with the red thrown in there and that smoke like thing. It all looks so amazing! 
I wish I had this cover, but I bought the Soul Screamers Vol 1: My Soul to Lose, My Soul to Take, My Soul to Save.  That also have a gorgeous cover:
