Cover Discovered (Touched)

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Book covers are amazing, some make you laugh, some make you cry, and some are just down-right gorgeous! Cover Discovered is a series of blog posts I do here at The Bucket List, where I bring you the latest book covers that were revealed not too long ago. Mind you, these covers may not be the final cover that will go on the final product, but book covers are always pretty to look at. Check out these great covers:

Touched by Cyn Balog

Publisher: Delacorte Press
Publication Date: August 14, 2012
PreOrder It: Amazon

Nick Cross always listens to the voice in his head. Because if he doesn’t? Things can go really, really wrong. Like the day he decided to go off script to save a life, dooming another one in the process. Trying to change the future can have disastrous consequences..

But this summer at the Jersey Shore, something’s about to happen that Nick never could have predicted. He meets Taryn, a girl with a dark family secret that may be the key to understanding his past. But will she also destroy his future? . Now the path that he thought he was on begins to shift . . . and there’s no way to stop it. Or is there?

In a life where there are no surprises, nothing has prepared Nick for what he’s about to discover—or the choice he will be forced to make. . . --Goodreads
Cyn Balog is a fantastic writer, so if the cover hasn't won you over yet then the writing of this novel better.  But, seriously, take a look at this cover.  There is a carnival in the background that looks very mysterious.  Especially if that guy, that one can only assume is Nick, is in attendance at said carnival.  Now that would be some time.  He has a velvety atmosphere that looks so awesome.  I want to read more about this book.  Even the title font looks so creepy that this one is definitely something to check out.

Touched by Corrine Jackson

Publisher: Kensington Teen
Publication Date: December 2012
Pages: 416
Remy O'Malley has the power to heal people with her touch, but her ability comes at a steep cost because every illness or injury she heals becomes her own. --Goodreads
I haven't read anything by this author, but this book sounds good and I sort of like this cover.  Just a note, this is the cover for the German edition.  The US cover edition has not released yet, but I'll probably definitely show it when it does.  The cover of Touched looks mystical and enchanting.  I love how the butterfly blends into the background.  Having the model's eyes closed just adds to the magical essence of the cover.  Anyway, it is really gorgeous and hopefully when the US cover releases, it will be as awesome as this one.

So today, I had some awesome trend of discovering two awesome covers both named Touched.  Make sure to the check the books out when they release cause they might be as good as the covers.  Which cover is you favorite?

  1. I enjoyed this book a lot. It was a little predictable, but still worth a read. At first it reminded me of the Twilight story line, but it developed into its own memorable story.
