loveLoveLOVE book covers as much as I love the books themselves..you guys might know that already..so 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!
THE COVER FOR THE FAULT IN OUR STARS BY JOHN GREEN OMG IT IS FINALLY HERE!!!!! There's a lot of mixed reactions going around, but personally, I love it - it's simple and ambiguous, and makes you sit there and wonder what it's about because the cover gives away nothing; recently, I've noticed there's been a whirlwind of gorgeous book covers out there for YA books, and when I actually read the book, I feel deflated because I can't find the link between the two. A pretty cover doesn't mean that the book's going to be fabulous, and I should really learn not to get my hopes up all the time.
Some of the fan covers for this were amazing, especially this one by Jeremy from Novel Thoughts! And hey, some the really cool people behind FYNF made a Tumblr dedicated entirely to John Green Book Covers. It is the definition of awesome, you guys.

I loved Amy Plum's debut novel, Die for Me (which I haven't reviewed yet because it was too awesome for me to talk about.. LOL), and then I saw the cover for Until I Die, the sequel, floating around the interweb and it's really pretty! And hey, don't the swirls make it look like she has wings? Though I think there may be a few too many.. it's looking quite busy. I'm not too sure about the font either, same with the cover for Die for Me, I think they should have kept it the same as the one used on the US cover, in white as well. Glad they kept it similar to the first book though and the purpley/blue is gorgeous.
I've only just realised that my review of Forgotten by Cat Patrick never went up on the blog because I review it for Bookbabblers, so you guys won't know how much I loved this book! You can check out my review here and then scream with me in excitement for Revived! HOW CREEPY DOES THAT COVER LOOK??! Cannot WAIT to get my hands on that one!
What do you think?
