UK Cover Love: Kelly Keaton's Darkness Becomes Her, Amy Plum's Die For Me & sneak peeks of Starcrossed & Angel Fire!

With this one, I think the UK cover definitely comes up trumps. The US cover of this one doesn't appeal to me at all, even though the story does sound interesting. I prefer the colours and the font on the UK cover. This one is out in the UK in June 2011, and releases in the US later this month.

Has anybody read it yet? What did you think?

I featured the ARC cover of Amy Plum's Die for Me a while back, but I thought it deserved to be shown in all it's glory here.  It's a gorgeous cover! Better still, I won a copy last week! I picked it up last night to read a couple of chapters, and was completely sucked into the story. Add this one to your wishlist and enjoy it when it releases in May!

Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed is a book that I've had my eye on for a while! I love Greek Mythology and the romance in this one sounds hot! Did you know that this one is releasing in the UK too? It's out in June, and sounds like a perfect summer read. 

Us Angel fans have quite a wait on our hands for Angel Fire, the second installment of L.A Weatherly's Angel trilogy.  It's not out until October, but I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.  I'm not sure if this is the final, final cover, but I thought I'd post it anyway.  P.S: Don't read the synopsis for this one if you haven't read the first book already - major spoilers!!

Angel Fire (Angel #2) by L.A Weatherly
Publisher: Usborne Publishing Ltd.
Release date: October 1st 2011.
Ages: YA

This is the thrilling second chapter in the electrifying "Angel Trilogy". Angels will never be seen in the same way again. Gorgeous, charismatic Alex has the courage and skill of a trained Angel Killer. Unique, dazzling Willow has the beauty and power that comes with being half-angel. As the power of the malevolent Church of Angels grows, now it's up to Alex and Willow to train a new team of Angel Killers. Willow soon finds her half-angel identity met with hostility by some of the other AKs, while privately, she must wrestle with the knowledge that her father, Raziel, is a depraved, evil angel. However, while life in the AK training camp is tough, at least Alex and Willow are together. But when Alex discovers that the death of his brother and fellow Angel-Killer, Jake, was linked to a secret CIA mission to defeat the angels, he is forced to leave the camp to complete his brother's work... without Willow. Alex promised Willow he would never leave her, but with the fate of the human race at stake, destiny has ruled that Alex and Willow must be parted once more...

Updated March 2010 to include the final cover of Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini.


  1. I like the Darkness Becomes Her UK cover better as well. The US one is just strange. I love all of the other covers that you showcased, especially Die For Me. I've been meaning to read Angel --I know how much you enjoyed it! :)

  2. Oh I like the UK cover better for sure. Except for her green eyes, those are a little creepy, but I really like the rest of it. The US version is okay, just nothing special. Die for Me is gorgeous, I love the way the vines wrap around her arms and go all down her dress. Thanks so much for sharing these Leanna!

  3. @Christina - Go get Angel (Angel Burn) on Netgalley!

    @Jenny - I agree with you on those eyes - they don't work for me. Maybe they play a big part in the story? I dunno.

  4. Nice covers! I particularly like DIE FOR ME. Interesting to see the different covers.

  5. I don't really like either of The Darkness Becomes Her covers tbh- though the book sounds interesting! I also really prefer the US Starcrossed than the UK. I do <3 the Die For Me cover though :)

  6. l think lately UK covers have been amazing!!!!

  7. I am reading Darkness Becomes Her now. Not bad so far but I have just began. I prefer the US cover for it though.

    I am in love with the cover for Die For Me. Definitely a favourite of mine.

    And I am so excited for Angel Fire :)

  8. I 'like' the UK version of Darkness Becomes Her better than the US one, but neither are particularly great. I luuuv Die For Me though. That cover is gorgeous! I have it pre-ordered, but for my Kindle and it makes me wish I'd ordered the paper book now.

    Angel Fire is pretty too =)

  9. I don't really like either cover for Darkness Becomes Her. I do prefer the colors and font in the UK cover though.

    I'm even more in love with the Die For Me UK cover every time I see it. Congrats to you for winning a copy!

  10. The UK cover for Darkness Becomes Her looks really creepy but I love the version of Die For Me. Congrats on winning a copy of it. I'm looking forward to reading your review!

  11. Oh, that Die For Me cover is *so* beautiful! Love the tendrils wrapping around her arm and the vivid red of her dress...

  12. I used to never care about book covers, but ever since I got into bloggerverse, I can't help but care, lol! And that Die For Me cover is real pretty!

  13. The UK version is so much better!! The us one doesn't make me want to read it. Starcrossed looks amazing!

  14. Gorgeous covers! Die For Me is on my must read list as you know :)

  15. Must say that I'm not a fan of either of the Darkness becomes her cover, but if I had to choose, I'd go with the UK version. Still haven't read Angel yet, but will try and get around to that soon. :)

  16. OMG I actaully want all of those and now am drooling all over the keyboard *sigh*

  17. The UK cover for Darkness Becomes Her is so creepy! But I like it! The cover for Die for Me is gorgeous :D
