Rate That Cover: The One

So today’s rate that cover is the cover for the third and final book in the selection trilogy, The One. and here is the cover

TO

absolutely beautiful cover that matches the series perfectly. i called that it would be a white dress and i’m stunned by how beautiful it turned out. this is a series full of beautiful covers and i will not deny that the cover was the reason i first picked up the selection.

but Kiera Cass was not finished there the cover for the selection stories was also released and is also quite beautiful and matches just enough to tie in to the rest of the series while differentiating itself from the main covers

Cover Face Off: Ignite Me

Now i usually do not put too many covers posts in a row but i could not help myself when i saw that Tahereh Mafi‘s 3rd book in the Shatter Me series has not only released the title but the cover and as someone who has just bought the first two books in hardcover I am jumping around like a crazy person.

IT MATCHES

and it is absolutely beautiful. to me this cover appears to capture Dawn and sprng which I think is a lovely image for the last book of a series especially as the first cover always reminded me of dusk and autumn. there is not much to say about this as I think it is just about the perfect cover.

with the repetition of the eye, with the water in the corner becoming smaller, with each book and the repeated motif of the bird within the eye the beauty of  these covers is really in the details

so which of these gorgeous covers is your favourite?

Rate that Cover: Cress

It is time for another Rate That Cover and this time it is the cover reveal for Cress book 3 in the Lunar Chronicles this time showcasing Rapunzel.

one thing I love is the title Cress is a type of lettuce drawing that connection to how Rapunzel got her name. while I don’t find the cover to fit perfectly into the set it does not stand out as wrong and considering Rapunzel is the princess with the golden hair and gold is not one of the colours included in previous covers the cover actually does a great job of fitting in. The cover is not quite as dark as the first two but still manages to capture the mystery and intrigue of the first two.

and when you look at the cover as an individual it is really just GORGEOUS. The glimmer on the red ribbon really bringing it to life. all in all I must say I really LOVE this cover but what do you think?

Cover Face Off: Hero

Now for the book that has gone through the most cover changes before it has even been released, i am of course talking about book two of the amazing Alethea Kontis’s woodcutter sisters series, Hero. although in fairness these cover changes may just be the result of the author keeping us in the loop through every cover change not just releasing it once it has been confirmed as many authors do. Now this book is the sequel to enchanted and as such I will show you a copy of the first book

so as you can asses not only which of these 2 covers are prettiest but also which YOU think looks better with this beautiful cover. once again I plead with you to please vote in the poll because it is so much more fun when we can see what everyone thinks

so for hero covers we have 2 options

HERO-revised1-677x1024

Option 1

17155787

Option 2

while i can see advantages to both covers i personally like option 1 better. while #2 shows off the gorgeous calligraphy a little more I like a little more colour in my covers and i love the bright blue dress and the image just looks that little more natural to me. but let me know what you think because as Option 2 is the cover that has been chosen (at least for now) my opinion may just be the minority.

Cover Face Off: The Land Of Stories

Well i wanted to be the first to reveal the cover for the second book in Chris Colfer’s Amazing fairytale inspired series for children unfortunately i missed the release and so now that it has been out for a month it is more than likely that at least some of you have seen it already. if you have you may be aware of the unavoidable which cover is better debate that has begun and what better place to bring it to light then on a blog so have your say which cover do you like better?

The Wishing Spell

TWS

The Enchantress Returns

Chris Colfer's THE LAND OF STORIES

Personally while i LOVE both covers and am in no way disappointed with the cover for the second book i think Book 1:The Wishing Spell just beats Book 2: The Enchantress Returns. if for no other reason other than the first book captures the essence of fairy-tales more (at least in my opinion). It was the cover of this book that drew me to reading this series despite my doubts of Colfer as a writer (as i doubt all famous people who decide to write a book) i was pleasantly surprised but that is a post for another day. Both covers are so detailed and intricate that you can stare at them for ages and there is always something new to see.

ok time to vote. which cover do you prefer?

HARRY POTTER!!!!!

I Don’t know how it took me so long to find out but the Harry Potter books are having a makeover. Only one has been released and considering it is taking over the classics I am actually impressed (unlike the “white covers” which did nothing for me). judging by the title this will probably be an American release but who knows maybe they will do the original title as well. but don’t take my word for it. what do you think
