DisCover #17

I loveLoveLOVE book covers as much as I love the books guys might know that I decided to make a new feature (called DisCover..geddit?!) where I'll be highlighting 3-4 books covers every week! Then, you can ooh and aah as much as you like in the comments box! 

I haven't done a DisCover post in AGES! I've been busy in the past month and away before that so I better get used to doing them again! There's been loads of covers I've had my eyes on and swooned over, but haven't had the chance to post before now. Here we go...

This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers
Release Date: June, 2012
Published by: St Martin's Press (Macmillan)

It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up.

As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, everyone’s motivations to survive begin to change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life–and death–inside.

When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

First of all: COURTNEY SUMMERS. And second? ZOMBIES!!! 
I love that you can't see the models' face on this, and her hair looks awesome. The little blood stains in the top left-hand corner are awesome. The title is VERY awesome. WHAT is not a test?

The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour
Release Date: February 6th, 2012
Published by: Dutton Juvenile (Penguin US)

Colby and Bev have a long-standing pact: graduate, hit the road with Bev’s band, and then spend the year wandering around Europe. But moments after the tour kicks off, Bev makes a shocking announcement: she’s abandoning their plans—and Colby—to start college in the fall.

But the show must go on and The Disenchantments weave through the Pacific Northwest, playing in small towns and dingy venues, while roadie-Colby struggles to deal with Bev’s already-growing distance and the most important question of all: what’s next?

Morris Award–finalist Nina LaCour draws together the beauty and influences of music and art to brilliantly capture a group of friends on the brink of the rest of their lives.

I've seen nothing but good reviews for LaCour's debut, Hold Still, and it's on my wish-list! It sounds awesome, and so does The Disechantments. I love the vintage-y, summery feel it has to it. And the font for the title is very cool. Looks likes it's been painted, yes? (Maybe it has, I dunno). 

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder
Release Date: December 8th, 2011
Published by: Razorbill (Penguin US)

Dry, sarcastic, sixteen-year-old Cam Cooper has spent the last seven years in and out of hospitals. The last thing she wants to do in the short life she has left is move 1,500 miles away to Promise, Maine—a place known for the miraculous events that occur there. But it's undeniable that strange things happen in Promise: everlasting sunsets; purple dandelions; flamingoes in the frigid Atlantic; an elusive boy named Asher; and finally, a mysterious envelope containing a list of things for Cam to do before she dies. As Cam checks each item off the list, she finally learns to believe—in love, in herself, and even in miracles.

Um, Wendy Wunder? Doesn't that sound MAGICAL?! And I get the same vibe from The Probability of Miracles. AND it's out the day after my birthday. <3 The pink is utter gorgeousness. The cut-out feather is a really great touch!

What do you think?
