Cover Discovered (13)

Wednesday, March 14, 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:

Reached by Ally Condie

Publisher: Dutton Childrens Books
Publication Date: November 13, 2012
Pages: 384
PreOrder It: Amazon

To be completely honest with you, I do not like this series at all, ever since book 1, you can read my review for Matched HERE.  That, however, does not mean that I can't stare at such pretty covers.  Matched's cover had to be my favorite because my favorite color green and this red is just not working out for me.  I like the symbolism of the covers: how she is breaking free of the "government's" hold.  I also love that in each book, she is slowly breaking free.  If you do not understand what I mean by that, check out all the covers side by side HERE.  Overall, I love these covers.

Beta by Rachel Cohn

Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Publication Date: October 16, 2012
Pages: 304
PreOrder It: Amazon
In a world constructed to absolute perfection, imperfection is difficult to understand—and impossible to hide. 
Elysia is a clone, created in a laboratory, born as a sixteen year old girl, an empty vessel with no life experience to draw from. She is a Beta, an experimental model of teenaged clone. She was replicated from another teenage girl, who had to die in order for Elysia to be created. 
Elysia's purpose is to serve the inhabitants of Demesne, an island paradise for the wealthiest people on earth. Everything about Demesne is bioengineered for perfection. Even the air there induces a strange, euphoric high that only the island's workers—soulless clones like Elysia—are immune to. 
At first, Elysia's new life on this island paradise is idyllic and pampered. But she soon sees that Demesne's human residents, the most privileged people in the world who should want for nothing, yearn. And, she comes to realize that beneath its flawless exterior, there is an undercurrent of discontent amongst Demesne's worker clones. She knows she is soulless and cannot feel and should not care—so why are overpowering sensations clouding Elysia's mind? 
If anyone discovers that Elysia isn't the unfeeling clone she must pretend to be, she will suffer a fate too terrible to imagine. When Elysia's one chance at happiness is ripped away from her with breathtaking cruelty, emotions she's always had but never understood are unleashed. As rage, terror, and desire threaten to overwhelm her, Elysia must find the will to survive. --Goodreads
Going with the theme of dystopian books, here is another pretty one for you.  The first thing when I look at this cover, I see the awesome tattoo that the purple girl is sporting.  It looks like one of those tattoos that you can get painted on at the circus or fair in the summer.  Then I noticed her purple eyes, which are a rare case of awesome.  If I were to see her walking on the street, I would be kind of scared and kind of amazed because this purple girl is gorgeous and so is this cover.  I'm jealous of her braid, by the way.  And I also noticed that the same type font for the title, seems to be used for Reached or they are just very similar.

Which cover is your favorite?  Also, I had some troubles on picking which covers to feature for this week, because Romeo Redeemed's cover also released.  Check that pretty cover out HERE.

  1. I REALLY love both the cover and the description for BETA.

    I think I am the last person who STILL hasn't read any of Ally Condie's books. :/

  2. The covers are indeed very, very nice. Remember reading old books with boring covers while in school? Bleeeeee!

    If these books are as well-received as their artwork, somebody has something going on!

  3. The first one seems more like it should be Breached instead of Reached.
