UK Cover Reveals: Revived by Cat Patrick, The Blessed by Tonya Hurley, Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone & More!

Here are some recent UK cover reveals that have caught my eye! I'm especially excited to read Cat Patrick's Revived and The Blessed by Tonya Hurley -- how cool do those books sound!

I've included the US cover counterparts where available, so tell me what your favourites are! Some of these UK covers are very different to the US looks, so I'll be interested to hear what you think!


Revived by Cat Patrick
Publisher:  Egmont
Release date: July 2012
Ages: 12+

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.

Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone
Publisher: Doubleday Childrens
Release date: October 2012
Ages: 12+

Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett’s unique ability to travel through time and space brings him into Anna’s life, and with him, a new world of adventure and possibility.

As their relationship deepens, they face the reality that time might knock Bennett back where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate—and what consequences they can bear in order to stay together.

Fresh, exciting, and deeply romantic, TIME BETWEEN US is a stunning and spellbinding debut from an extraordinary new talent in YA fiction.

Saving June by Hannah Harrington
Publisher: Mira Ink
Release date: June 2012
Ages: 14+

Harper Scott’s older sister has always been the perfect one so when June takes her own life a week before her high school graduation, sixteen-year-old Harper is devastated. Everyone’s sorry, but no one can explain why.

When her divorcing parents decide to split her sister’s ashes into his-and-her urns, Harper takes matters into her own hands. She’ll steal the ashes and drive cross-country with her best friend, Laney, to the one place June always dreamed of going, California.

Enter Jake Tolan. He’s a boy with a bad attitude, a classic-rock obsession and nothing in common with Harper’s sister. But Jake had a connection with June, and when he insists on joining them, Harper’s just desperate enough to let him. With his alternately charming and infuriating demeanour and his belief that music can see you through anything, he might be exactly what she needs.

Except June wasn’t the only one hiding something. Jake’s keeping a secret that has the power to turn Harper’s life upside down again.

Spoiler Alert! The next cover is for a second-in-a-series book. You might want to skip reading the synopsis if you haven't read the first book already!

Rage Within (Dark Inside #2) by Jeyn Roberts
Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books
Release date: August 2012
Ages: 14+

Aries, Clementine, Mason and Michael have survived the first wave of the apocalypse that wiped out most of the world's population, and turned many of the rest into murderous Baggers. Now, they're hiding out in an abandoned house in Vancouver with a ragtag group of surviving teens, and trying to figure out their next move.

Aries is trying to lead, but it's hard to be a leader when there are no easy answers, and every move feels wrong. Clementine is desperate to find her brother Heath, but it's impossible to know where he'd be, even if he is still alive. Michael is still haunted by the memories of his actions during his harrowing struggle to survive. And Mason is struggling with something far worse: the fear that he may be a danger to his friends.

As the Baggers begin to create a new world order, Aries, Clementine, Mason and Michael will have to trust and rely on each other in order to survive.

  1. I prefer the Australian editions of Revived and Saving June! I guess I just like girls in daydreaming in fields, ha. 

  2. Oh, I definitely like the UK covers of Revived and The Blessed the best.
    And I DIDN'T KNOW THERE WAS GOING TO BE A SEQUEL TO DARK INSIDE!!! I think it could have worked quite well as a standalone novel actually, but oh well. I want to read Rage Within now! :)

  3. I like the UK cover of Saving June, the red is pretty:) And I prefer the UK edition of Velvet to the US, the US version looks kind of dowdy to me:/...Love these posts Leanna:))

  4. I am loving the premise and the cover for Time Between Us.  I'm such a sucker for stories like that.  I also

  5. Whew, so many new covers! The Australian and original cover for SAVING JUNE is still my favourite. But I'm very thankful for the UK version of THE BLESSED, I find the US cover just horrible. That is sadly a cover which prevents me from buying the book.

  6. I definitely prefer the UK cover of The Blessed over the US one! I also think the Australian cover for Revived is the prettiest of the editions for that book too.

    Wow...these are all so different. I like the US and Aussie covers for Revived. The UK cover for Blessed. The US covers for the Dark Inside series and Velvet. 

  8. Every cover is attractive!

  9. Nicole Krogmann9 May 2012 at 11:43

    For Revived and The Blessed definitely the UK covers, for Saving June, neither fits >.< For Time Between us both :) and The Velvet covers don't look too different in terms of feel...

  10. I love both of the Velvet covers, but perhaps I'm biased because I'm such a Mary Hooper fan!

  11. daisychainbooks9 May 2012 at 13:01

     Me too! I LOVED Dark Inside -- I can't wait to see what happens next!

  12. daisychainbooks9 May 2012 at 13:02

     I like the colours they used on the US version of Velvet -- it's a really great read!

  13. daisychainbooks9 May 2012 at 13:02

     I think you'd really love Velvet, Christina!

  14. daisychainbooks9 May 2012 at 13:03

     I know -- I completely bypassed The Blessed until I saw the UK cover. I think the plot sounds really cool, but the US cover is kinda freaky!! The original Aussie cover of Saving June is my fave too! :)

  15. daisychainbooks9 May 2012 at 13:04

     Velvet is the only book I've read by Mary Hooper and I loved it. I need to read more of her books!

  16. daisychainbooks9 May 2012 at 13:06

     The UK cover for The Blessed beats the US cover hands down. I'm not sure if I'm totally in love with any of the covers for Revived, although I think the Aussie cover is probably my fave too!

  17. SO PRETTY! I can't tell you how excited I am for REVIVED and BLESSED - both of those look amazing. And now I'm pumped for VELVET since you said it was a favorite of yours:) WOO HOO!

  18. I still prefer the old Dark Inside cover...but Rage Within! Leanna, how excited are we? I can't wait! I need to know more! Especially about a certain someone :P. Love the AU cover of Revived but really like the UK one too! Especially the the faces are set out. Thanks for sharing :).

  19. Iike the UK cover of Revived, I like how it links into Forgotten. Also, what IS it with Australians and vintage-esque images of girls lying on grass??? Eitherway, I prefer the AUS cover of Saving June, the UK one is a bit meh. Love the cover for The Blessed! That's really pretty
