News: New Covers!

Lots of ace new book covers have been revealed over the past couple of weeks, and I'm such a cover fan that I just had to post about them. I'll be US/UK'ing a few of them at some point, as I already have very clear favourites. Let me know what you guys think of these new ones - good, bad, indifferent?


Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
(US cover)

I loooove this cover. But, then again, I love all of James Porto's Hush, Hush saga creations. I think it's atmospheric and brilliant, and I can't wait to have it on my bookshelf! (And, err, obviously I can't wait to actually read the book too!)

The Invisible Order: The Fire King by Paul Crilley
(US cover)

I love this one too. I read the first book last year and was swept away to OMG WOW land, and The Fire King is one of my most anticipated 2011 releases. September seems so far away!

Soul Screamers: If I Die by Rachel Vincent
(US cover)

I think the US covers for this series are great, and I like how each one has a different colour scheme. If I Die isn't my favourite so far, but I still like it. The title font really stands out!

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
(US/UK covers)

I prefer the US cover here, but both are appealing. Looking forward to reading this... I hope it's a good one!

Sweetly by Jackson Pearce
(UK cover)

This cover gives me the creeps. Eep.

The Damned: A Crusade Novel by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie
(UK cover)

More cover lust: I think this is amazing! It reminds me of an old 30 Days of Night tie-in cover, which is, of course, a good thing.

The Death Cure by James Dashner
(US cover)

Wow wow wow! I'm so glad I buy the US editions of this series. I think it's the best of the 3 for sure!

Fury by Elizabeth Miles
(US/UK covers)

Both of these are lovely. I want them both and I want them now!

Twisted by Gena Showalter
(US cover)

Ace colours used here, and epic title treatment once again. I hope the UK one turns out as nice.

LOVE the cover for Silence! I think it's my favourite of the three. I prefer the UK for The Scorpio Races. The Death Cure reminds me of the movie The Day After Tomorrow!

INVISIBLE ORDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't want to rush summer, but... September is far away. ;)

I like the UK Fury better. I didn't even know of that book until just now. Must investigate.

Silence is one of my absolute favourite covers. I love it!

I'm a little underwhelmed by both covers for The Scorpio Races, although I am really looking forward to reading the book.

I'm so excited for Fury. I prefer the US cover. I think that one is stunning!

Ooh, I love Silence! So amazing! I can't wait for Sweetly---they could have released that one in a brown paper bag covering and I would still read it!LOL

The cover for Twisted is so pretty!!

But I really don't like the cover for If I Die. I thought it was a fake when I first so it.It doesn't work for me at all *shrug*

I love all these covers! They are all so pretty :)

Jenn (Books At Midnight) said...

Oh, hadn't seen Fury's UK cover, which is gorgeous, just in a different way than the US cover. And I love Sweetly's cover! With the whole optical illusion thing like on Sisters Red. Thanks for posting! :)

Emma Book Angel said...

Oh My I just love pretty covers - I will certainly be fawning over all of these when I see them on shelves :D :D

Sanna said...

What a beautiful cover for Silence! I love it =)

Oooh, I love the cover for The Death Cure - I buy the US editions of this series too. I like that this one gives a hint of what to expect too. Can't wait.
