Just because I've been absent from blogging lately, doesn't mean I still don't see the recently revealed covers of upcoming books, as well as the release of book trailers. If anything, I'm on the lookout more, so that I can keep track of what books are coming out and when, so I can snag myself a copy.
It seems that this week has gifted us with many a book covers, and one magnificentally well made book trailer.
First: As an inkpopper, I've known about Wendy Higgins' upcoming Sweet Evil ever since it was first announced (Coming May 1st, 2012). Well, yesterday Wendy tweeted the cover (you can follow her on twitter too @Wendy_Higgins) and I must say: WOW! It's incredibly beautiful, and elegant and it says so much without saying anything at all. It offers a contrast with not only the bright vs. dark side, but also the vibrant, rich red vs. the deep black. It shows that some type of romance is obviously involved, and I unsurprisingly, am okay with this (Duh). I want to stare at this book cover, and then I want to pet it. A little much? Probably... but I don't care. If I knew nothing about this book, I wouldn't care, I would still pick it up and buy it because of this cover alone. And while one should never judge a book by its cover, if you get this book and don't like it (I haven't read it so I can't tell you my feelings about it yet) at least you have a gorgeous book sitting on your shelf. Anyways... STARE AWAY!
Second: We got TWO cover reveals yesterday for two of Lauren Kate's books. One of which is Rapture: A Fallen Novel (June 12th, 2012 from Delacorte Books). This cover while being very similar to the other, a girl in a dress, is different because it feautures the girl in a white dress, rather than a black. And it is by far my favorite of them all. All of the covers are very beautiful but this offers a different tone. Each of the other covers shows a girl whose hanging her head. In this cover, at the very least she is looking straight ahead, maybe up a little. What are your thoughts? Do you have a favorite cover of the four Fallen novels?
Last but NOT LEAST: Trailer of EPICNESS. I have seen many books trailers, and I can say that this is one of my ALL TIME favorites (So many capitals, sorry this is kind of exciting). I have already had the great pleasure of reading Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (Out Nov. 15th, 2011 from Harperteen), and this trailer does a wonderful job of showing off this wonderful book in such a short period of time. No need to say much, watch and decide for yourself. Share your thoughts in the comment section, I would love to hear what everyone thinks of this!
What are come recent cover reveals that you went ga-ga over? Book trailers?
