Cover Reveals We're Excited About

There's been lots of fun cover reveals lately, and we want to repeat the cover love and share with you some of the ones we've been most excited about. 

Her Dark Curiosity by Meghan Shepherd

1) I love the title! It's ominous and it matches the title of the first book. 

2) This cover also matches the first book! The change from a white dress to an elegant black dress alone adds a creepier message. 

3) The fact that it's inspired by The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde makes me excited! I didn't love that story, but man was it creepy and strange. 
Starling by Fiona Paul

1) If you've been reading the blog this year, then you know that I loved Venom by Fiona Paul. I love the history, I love the mystery, I love the writing, I love the romance! Can you get any better?

2) The covers did a switch. Now it's more words with just background pictures. The first book is now blue and the third book is purple. Although thought the original covers were gorgeous, I see that these are definitely more versatile! 

3) I'm reading Belladonna now. Yes, if you're wondering, it is just as good so far!

Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi

1) Like everyone else in the blogosphere, we're super excited for the final installment of the Under the Never Sky trilogy! We even devoted a whole 20 minute Book on the Hot Spot to explain how much we loved the first book. 

2) To be honest, I don't love these covers at all. They're cheesy and they don't do the book justice, but that's just my opinion! The biggest thing is that Perry looks like a 40 year old man...and that's just not right. 

3) One of our YA book clubs is reading Under the Never Sky now! 

The House of Ivy and Sorrow by Natalie Whipple

1) I don't know about you, but I usually love covers with a really crazy font that takes up the whole front! A good example would be Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke. I'm  a bit of a font freak! 

2) I love the green and I'm a total plant person! Whether I knew about Natalie Whipple before or not, I would totally pick this up! 

3) This is going to come out immediately in paperback! 

What cover reveals have you seen and loved lately? 

Happy reading,

  1. I have a bad case of book lust looking at this post. I loved The Madman's Daughter as well as Venom and Belladonna, so both Her Dark Curiosity and Starling are sitting there taunting me. *Wants*
    I love the cover for Her Dark Curiosity. I think it goes perfectly with the first one! I have to admit I'm kind of bummed about Fiona Paul's cover changes... they all could have been so pretty! I do like the cover for House of Ivy and Sorrow, though. I love seeing what can be done with typographic covers! Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is definitely another great one!

    1. I totally agree with the change! I love the others more and now my hardcovers won't match ;)

  2. Definitely a ton of great covers! HarperTeen has the covers rolling! But Starling (Penguin) is beautiful! Love the purple. Little problem on the cover, but the designers are aware! :)

    1. Is it the 'secrets' part?? Harper and Penguin seem to have the best covers, although S&S does those really cool boy and girl ones like The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Let the Sky Fall!

  3. I read The Madman's Daughter earlier this month, loved the book and loved the cover! I'm so excited for the next book and like that cover too! I agree that the covers for Veronica Rossi's series are no good. That does NOT look like the Perry in my head! And I don't like it! haha. I freaking LOVE that series though!

    1. GLAD YOU AGREE!!! He looks so old and just not...Perry!


Thank you for visiting our blog and reading this review. We hope you stop by the store and check out the book!
