Cover Discovered (12)

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

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:

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry
Publication Date: May 8, 2012
Pages: 536
PreOrder It: Amazon
In Book 5: City of Lost Souls, the Shadowhunters struggle to piece together their shattered world after a betrayal by one of their own leaves them reeling. --Goodreads
Wait, what?  As much as I like the idea of Jace and Clary in each other's arms on the cover, where is there theme of not showing their faces... wasn't it time for a Magnus cover or someone?  It just doesn't go with the theme.  I see your face, what is with that?  I love this series and I want to know what this book is about.  I love the cover; it is pretty and if it was a cover by itself, I would love it even more.  I, especially, love how the lightening moves into Clary's hair.  Really nice.

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: April 24, 2012
Pages: 304
PreOrder It: Amazon
You will kill. The only question is when. 
In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs. Uncontested Princes hold sway over diminished ranks of humans: their "pets." In exchange for their labor, loyalty and of course, their blood, these pets are registered, given food and shelter, permitted to survive. 
Unregistered humans cling to fringes, scavenging for survival. Allison Sekemoto and her fellow Unregistereds are hunted, not only by vampires, but by rabids, the unholy result of Red Lung-infected vampires feeding on unwary humans. One night, Allie is attacked by a pack of rabids, saved by an unlikely hero...and turned vampire. 
Uncomfortable in her undead skin, Allie falls in with a ragtag crew of humans seeking a cure, or cures: for Rabidism and for Vampirism. She's passing for human...for now. But the hunger is growing and will not be denied. Not for friendship—not even for love. --Goodreads
I know this one is going to be great because it's Julie Kagawa.  You don't have to look at the cover to know how good it's going to be.  I love this cover though; it's very clever.  I love how the eye color matches the red and black blood streaming down her cheek.  It looks interesting and when this releases, I'll probably pick it up because the cover kind of draws me in.

So what was your favorite cover of the bunch?
