News: New Uglies, Pretties & Specials UK Covers!

When Kat at Simon & Schuster UK showed me these new Uglies, Pretties and Specials covers a few days ago, I was excited. Really excited - I LOVE them!

I haven't read the series, but I definitely will do as soon as I get these new editions. They're amazing, and even nicer in person -- the colours stand out more (Specials is more green), and they're very eye-catching. All three books are released in the UK on March 4th, 2010, in paperback format.

What do you reckon'? Do you like them?

I really do like these new covers. I haven't read this series because the old UK covers really put me off. Yes, I judge books on their covers and I'm proud of it LOL.

ohh i'm torn here... i loved the previous covers, but these ones get cookie points for having Hover-boards on them.
I loved this series =)

Justine said...

Wow, these are really cool. I think I like these ones better than the US covers. But not by much because I love them all :P

Bookalicious said...

I must be the only one who really doesn't like these covers then ... Not my cup of tea, but the titles sound interesting. :)

Ooh, these are gorgeous! You really HAVE to read this series, Jen. I think you'll love them.

I'm confused, is it the dolls or the girl by the plant that was the original UK cover? I have girl-by-plant sitting on my shelf after I mooched it.
These covers are great! I love them! The dolls one were cool too, though! :)

Awesome new covers! :) The series is great and they deserve covers as awesome as the ones above! But where's Extras?

Chicklish said...

I like the old UK doll covers... but I think these will appeal to more people!
Good point about Extras.

I like these! Definitely an improvement on the previous UK covers, which didn't really capture the feel of the books for me.

Maria said...

The covers look really nice!

Wow, gorgeous covers! So eye-catching. Haven't read the books yet but now I want to!

I like the old UK covers more.Espessially the cover for 'Uglies'. These are okay. The US/Canada ones I like the most.

Bookworm said...

Oohhh interesting...especially when the US ones are borderline creepy, and the old UK ones were just scary! I love!

Andrea said...

I actually, respectfully, don't like them. Too James Bond and the tag lines are cliche. Not for me.

Lindsey Leavitt said...

Wow-those are so different. I've always liked the US originals, but these do have some more edge I guess.

Clover said...

No. I don't like these. It's the eyeball in the middle, it puts me off. I liked the old covers :( Good thing I've already read the series, because I don't think I'd have picked these books up.

I Want To Read That said...

Hmm - actually I think I prefer the old covers. The US covers are my favs though.

Kate said...

I don't like these covers =(
I just don't get them.

Yunaleska said...

I like both of them :) It's a fab series. A little less freaky than the dolls (although the eye is a bit odd if I look to hard at it).

Sandy said...

Oh wow very nice, I love them more than the previous UK covers and I think I love them more than US covers too, the colours are more striking and design much more unique. Its also gives more insight into what type of books the series are ^_^.
