Cover Crush: Through the Ever Night & Dead Silence
Each week we round up the most crush-worthy covers to hit the web (or just to hit our eyeballs).
Straight Up Sexy
Oh Perry. Why do you have to be sooo hot AND sooo fictional? I love how that casually rumpled shirt and hair says “I’ve been roaming through Aether storms looking for YOU girl. Just because it’s the apocalypse doesn’t mean we can’t make out.”
I had a whole bunch of perfectly legit reasons for buying Veronica Rossi’s Under the Never Sky sequel, Through the Ever Night (addicted to the story, dying to know what happens to Aria and Perry, MOAR ROAR, etc.), but now I’m pretty sure I just want to face this book out on my shelf and shamelessly ogle Perry.
1) Dead Silence by Kimberly Derting is another creepy Georgia O’Keefe style cover for her Body Finder series. Flower closeups are so….murdery.
2) Requiem by Lauren Oliver is once again the Lena show. “You’ve seen my eye peeking out of a bush in Delirium, and you’ve seen the ‘meh’ side of my face in Pandemonium, now for my GOOD side. (I really hope this is the last book, cause I’m running out of face poses.)”
3) Oh my GAWD there’s a new Claudia Gray series coming, and it’s about witches!! Spellcaster has a fab cover look (but, it IS Book One in a trilogy, and Harper sometimes likes to get a Book One cover out of its system before it settles on a series look, so I will curb my enthusiasm for now).
I like how the description says for “fans of the hit CW TV show The Secret Circle.” Yeah and my Mars sci-fi work-in-progress is for fans of the “hit blockbuster movie John Carter.”
More Than Human….
There is nothing more attractive on a cover than an author you love saying “Ohmygod pick this book up RIGHT NOW!!”
If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch gets this endorsement from Jennifer Brown: “Within two pages, I was so hopelessly hooked, I felt like the story had attached itself to me…This is one of those books you devour.”
Jaclyn Moriarty’s A Corner of White gets a Markus Zusak kiss of approval: “Perfectly strange and absolutely comical and heartfelt….Jaclyn Moriarty is one of the most original writers we have.”
