News: Kissed by an Angel & Shiver UK Covers

I was just browsing Amazon (again. Ahem.) when I came across the UK covers for Kissed by an Angel by Elizabeth Chandler, and Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.



What do you think? I love the Kissed by an Angel image, and Shiver looks so cool with those colours. These are released in the UK on August 7th and October 5th, by Macmillan and Scholastic.

I love them both though I'm not particularly fond of the font on the Shiver UK cover.

Kissed by an Angel looks awesome. Roses are beautiful anyway, but the pink on black just works so well! I can't decide if I like Shiver's cover or not.

Lenore said...

Lots of black - I like!

I love the Shiver cover. It's a lot more striking than the US one.

Reverie said...

I think Shiver's cover pops more in the black white and red. LOVE IT! and i like how the rose drips in KBA.

Kristen said...

Oooo I love both, I just like black based covers I think. :)

I prefer the UK Kissed by an Angel cover. However, I like the US Shiver cover more, I just think it's so pretty.

OH WOW!!! These Covers Are Amazing... The Kissed By An Angel Cover Is Way Better Than The US Version... But I do Agree With Callie On Shiver... The Blue and White One Is Just Soooooo Pretty

I love the Kissed By an Angel Cover. I might just venture to the UK to get it one day.

Bookworm said...

Argh! The UK Shiver cover is creepy...the US one is so pretty!

Marie said...

I like the US Shiver cover better- although both seem so similar just different colors...
I think the US Shiver cover could pass for adult lit also..

Love the cover of KbaA. I've just put up the UK cover of Kiss of Life by Daniel Waters on http://readingteenagefiction.blogspot.com/2009/06/kiss-of-life-in-waterstones.html - also a black cover with flower :).

I like black, red, and white together, but I prefer the blue and white US cover of Shiver. I like the simple, non-drippy title with just the splash of red above the "i," and I like the shadow of the wolf (which I didn't even notice until I was about 1/2 way done with the book!).

Luisa said...

Wow, I was in a bookshop today and amazed by the amount of black on YA covers right now. Honestly, the YA table was almost completely black. (Luckily, I spotted a certain purple book too. ;) )

Yan said...

Wait! That's the UK version!? Darnit, my source sucks ;P I thought that it was the paperback version. I love the UK version for Kissed by an Angel much more than ours!

Thao said...

I like Kissed By An Angel. Looks greater than the US one. For Shiver I have to go for the blue version, it reminds me much of winter and I want to shiver :)

Steph Su said...

The UK Kissed by an Angel cover is so much better than the US one! And the Shiver one is nice as well. But, er, my eyes drift back to the KbaA one. :)

Kate said...

I really love the UK version of Shiver! I'm not sure about KBaA cover. Flowers on covers is starting to get a lil broing for me. If it's feathers falling, I may change my mind :)
