Cover Candy #20 - Recent Swoonworthy Cover Reveals!

Time for a Cover Candy catch-up! This time round I'm featuring some hot new covers, as always, and I've also picked some new looks for two books I really enjoyed reading last year!

Let me know what you think of the featured covers in comments. Will you be adding any of these to your wish list?


First up is Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction, a new YA anthology publishing in August 2012. Featuring short stories from Richelle Mead, Simone Elkeles and Laini Taylor amongst others, this one sounds like it is not to be missed! The main reason I'm counting down the days to this one is because it features a Rose-and-Dimitri-in-Russia short story from Richelle Mead. Yes, THE ROSE & DIMITRI!! And look at that cover - gorgeous!

Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction edited by Carrie Ryan
Publisher: Random House Children's Books
Release date: August 2012
Ages: 12+

Have you ever been tempted to look into the future? To challenge predictions? To question fate?

It’s human nature to wonder about life’s twists and turns. But is the future already written—or do you have the power to alter it?

From fantastical prophecies to predictions of how the future will transpire, Foretold is a collection of stories about our universal fascination with life’s unknowns and of what is yet to come as interpreted by 14 of young adult fiction’s brightest stars.

I'm sure most, if not all of you, have heard about Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian by now  - I know a lot of people are excited for this one! The cover reveal was last week, and I love it! Burn for Burn is the first in a new trilogy, and will be followed by Fire with Fire (2013) and Ashes to Ashes (2014).

Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release date: September 2012
Ages: 14+

The start of a brand-new young adult trilogy about three very different girls who overcome their differences and band together to seek revenge on those who have wronged them, uncovering a supernatural secret about what brought them together and why in the process. Each book will rotate back and forth between the perspectives of all three characters.

Now onto some new cover looks! I've linked the original covers too, so let me know which covers you prefer!

Envy (Fury #2) by Elizabeth Miles is releasing in October, and it looks as though Simon and Schuster are going with a whole new look for the series with this one.  The paperback edition of Fury (Fury #1) - KEEP UP! ;) - releasing in June has also been given a makeover and will look very pretty sitting on your shelf beside that new copy of Envy. 

I like these covers, I do. I like them a lot, but I LOVED the original US cover for Fury, which I thought was a pretty great cover. Still, I like these too!

Which covers do you prefer? The originals or are you happy that these books got a whole new look?

Another book that's getting a paperback makeover is Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts. Have you read this one yet? You need to. It is AWESOME! (Totally sorry about all the caps in this post, btw. I must be feeling a little shouty today or something!)

I love this new UK paperback cover for the book (releasing in May). Definitely my favourite out of all the covers for this one. What do you think?

  1. Love the Dark Inside cover!! And I can't wait for Burn For Burn, Jenny Han is awesome!

  2. I don't usually read a lot of anthologies, but I am SUPER excited for Foretold because of the Rose/Dimitri short story!! EEEEEEEEE!!! I miss those two! Not to mention LAINI TAYLOR, god of words and Simon Elkeles. Super excited!

    I do like the original Fury covers, but I have to say, these new ones are my favourite. They're just so captivating and make me want to pick them up. I have a copy of Fury that I so need to read soon!

    Cannot freaking wait for Burn for Burn . And I must must must get hold of Dark Inside soon!!! I agree, this new cover is my favourite too :D

  3. Oooooo love these! Burn for Burn sounds particularly good, I can't wait for that one. And Foretold has some amazing authors contributing, so that will be a must read as well. SO PRETTY LEANNA!

  4. Ooh I like the new covers of Fury and Envy!

  5. I love the covers for Foretold and Burn for Burn, but I have to say I like the other covers for Fury and Dark Inside better.  But I do like how the new Fury and Envy covers are different than the usual YA covers (whereas the original one was a pretty typical YA cover) with the flowers around the edges.  Cool feature, BTW!  ;)

  6. Loving the sound of Burn for Burn is it being published in the UK too?

  7. Cool covers! Definitely like Foretold and Burn for Burn! Dark Inside is cool too. Whenever I go on your blog and see the Slide cover posted under your faves...I think...I have to read that book and get the UK one!
