DisCover #18

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! 

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Release Date: January 10th, 2012
Published by: Dutton Juvenile (Penguin US)

Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now.

Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.

Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.

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. Check it out:

Until I Die by Amy Plum
Release Date: May 2rd, 2012
Published by: Atom

Kate has chosen to leave the comfort and safety of her human world in order to join Vincent in the dangerous supernatural universe he inhabits. For his part, he has sworn to go against his very nature and resist the repeated deaths that are his fate as a revenant—even though it will bring him immeasurable suffering.

Heady with romance and rife with danger, the second book of the DIE FOR ME trilogy follows Vincent and Kate as they search—separately—for a solution to their plight, pursuing their quest from the glamorous streets of Paris to the city’s squalid underbelly. Although the experiment that Vincent attempts is progressively destroying him, he insists on seeing it through to the end. This prompts Kate to strike out on her own into the dangerous world of the revenants to find another way. But she unwittingly puts everyone she loves at risk when she discovers a family of ancient healers who hold the key to a secret that could help the bardia—the good revenants—overthrow their murderous enemies, the numa, forever.

And while the lovers search for something they have little chance of finding, a new threat arises among the numa. Kate finds herself in the midst of an ancient and deadly war, not as a bystander...but as a target.

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.

Revived by Cat Patrick
Release Date: May 8th, 2012
Published by: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (US)

As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life. 
A secret government agency has developed a drug called Revive that can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject, has been Revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she discovers the agency’s true goals, she realizes she’s at the center of something much larger — and more sinister — than she ever imagined.

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?
