Cover Reveal Thursday (4)

There were a bunch of new covers this week! This list is in no way comprehensive, just the ones I noticed. :)

The Evolution of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin
Thoughts: This cover definitely matches the first one, but I'm not really sure if I'm a fan. I like that they look like a series, but I feel like the people look weird. Seriously, look at the guy...something's off. Most of the blogosphere is eating this up, though.

Unwholly - Neal Shusterman
  Thoughts: So. Creepy. Seriously. I am terrified by this cover. Which is pretty much about right for what I expect from the book, I would say.

Divinely Ruined - Diane Alberts
Thoughts: Not a fan. First off, she reminds me of Pink with her attitude and pose. Second, why is she naked? Third, an apple, really? They know I will immediately think of Twilight, right? Finally, her wings are ridiculously tiny. She would not be able to fly. AT ALL. She looks like she's wearing an angel wing costume for kids.

The Lost Prince - Julie Kagawa
 Thoughts: Yeah, no.

The Iron Legends - Julie Kagawa
Thoughts: I really loved the previous Iron Fey covers, though not the books. Pardon me while I laugh hysterically at these two newest ones. Needless to say, they're not for me.

Outpost - Ann Aguirre
  Thoughts: Not gonna lie. The most interesting aspect of this cover is all the drama preceding its release. Ann tweeted several times about people releasing supposed Outpost covers, even though it hadn't been released. I even saw one last week. And it definitely was not this one, although somewhat similar. Lol whut? Why would people pretend to have the cover? The cover's okay, but not my fav. Then again, Enclave wasn't my favorite either; doesn't mean the book won't be constructed entirely of awesomesauce!

Seven Wonders - Adam Christopher
  Thoughts: It took me an embarrassingly long time to notice that the buildings form a seven. *facepalm* I love superheroes! I like this one, especially how blindingly bright the sun is.

Empty - K. M. Walton
Thoughts: I like that it matches the cover of Walton's previous book, Cracked. The cover definitely makes its point well, but I am not drawn to it especially. Meaningful, not pretty.

The Culling - Steven Dos Santos
Thoughts: Clearly they are marketing this to boys. Reminds me a lot of The Maze Runner or Tunnels. I feel like there's actually too much green. I hate the radiation color of the title, but I imagine that was an intended thing. Not nice to look at, though. Very intrigued by the shiny thing on his wrist.
Monstrous Beauty - Elizabeth Fama
Thoughts: I guess the first cover wasn't popular, because there's a new one. I didn't like that one and, frankly, I don't like this one either. It is neat, though, that the mermaid looks so very non-human. She's green!

Cover of the Week: Seven Wonders!

I did enter. Not holding my breath, though. I enter them all the time, but haven't won one in like 2 years.

Me too. But maybe we'll get lucky. I've never wanted to win as much as I do now :)

I think the apple in the picture for Divinely Ruined may represent Eve and the fall of humanity, especially when taken into context with the title. I have no idea what the book is about, though. The placement of the girl's thumbs in that photo made me lol; they look like weird nipples. haha

Ahh, so excited for Unwholly!
