Shera’s Thoughts:  This cover makes me feel like the girl on it hasn’t gotten a chance to take a bath.  Her hair is greasy . . .

Shera’s Thoughts:  O’how the mighty have fallen.  Did the design team even look at this before they gave to the higher ups??  Better yet, did the higher ups even look at this?

It’s terrible. Terrible.

Shaded Vision by Yasmine Galenorn

Get the book: Shaded Vision (Otherworld)

Source: Wicked Scribes

Shera’s Thoughts:  Every new cover in this series just keeps getting better and better!!!  And Delilah's covers are always the best.  Makes me want to grab my copies and read the entire series. (Or in the very least catch up.)

On Midnight Wings by Adrian Phoenix

Get the book: On Midnight Wings: Book Five of The Maker's Song

Source: Wicked Scribes

Shera’s Thoughts:  Very in keeping with the series.  Gun? Check. Leather bad ass black out fit? Check. Fogging background? Check.  Basically it’s getting old.

Midnight Enchantment by Anya Bast

Get the book: Midnight Enchantment (A Dark Magick Novel)

Source: Wicked Scribes

Shera’s Thoughts:  No matter how many times I say it it’s true:  Anya Bast has the gift of the cover fiary on her side.  No matter the series she just gets stunning covers. 

This one has to be my favorite.  The stunning background and that red hair. Sad to hear this will be the last one in the series. (For a while at least.)

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Get the book: Delirium: The Special Edition

Source: Goodreads 

Shera’s Thoughts:  This cover has a “fairytale'” feel to it, or some can of fantasy.  Really like the original better, and that’s the one I was hoping to get my hands on in paperback. 

This new “Special Edition” cover could be any old book on the shelf. Way to make it boring and standard guys.

delirium

Author’s Thoughts:

I know some people have seen it popping up in random bookstores, so definitely keep your eye out...The Special Edition of DELIRIUM (featuring a spanking new cover, a Q & A with yours truly, and an excerpt from PANDEMONIUM) is officially on-sale tomorrow!

Original Cover:

Delirium (Delirium, #1)

Pandemonium (Delirium #2) by by Lauren Oliver

Get the book: Pandemonium

Source: Goodreads

Shera’s Thoughts:  It looks nice and matches (what I assume will be) the new covers.  The plants around her face are very cool. However, I was hoping to get a cover like the original blue one.  Sometimes good typography is all you need.

pandemonium

Author’s Thoughts:

They are so, so beautiful...seriously. They defy my powers of description!

Fever by Lauren DeStefano

Get the book: Fever (Chemical Garden Trilogy, the)

Source: Goodreads

Shera’s Thoughts:  This cover is definitely not as cool as the first. I feel like an evil Chucky doll is going to pop out at me at any moment!  Like how they keep the circle and line thingies present on this cover.

fever

Author’s Thoughts:

The cover for FEVER, done up by the amazing and talented Lizzy Bromley at Simon & Schuster, was released this past Wednesday, and then the ARCs for FEVER arrived to my publisher's office.

Destined by P. C. Cast, Kristin Cast

Get the book: Destined (House of Night)

Source: Goodreads

Shera’s Thoughts:  YUCK!! This is the first House of Night cover I can actually hate.  Love the cool stylized stuff they have on top of the image.  But the guy is such a turn off.

Check it out! Isn't the US cover gorgeous?! Oh, and this isn't Stark - it's Aurox! Oooh - P.C. Cast

Yeah, this was a good week for covers.

Maybe they'll do a do over? They did that with one of the other covers.
