Here are some covers that have been released for upcoming books in the last few months.
Firstly I have to show you some covers of Michael Grant’s upcoming releases.
On the left we have the redesigned cover for the US paperback of BZRK and on the right is the cover for the sequel (hardcover) BZRK Reloaded, out in the US in October. Yes, they’ve redesigned from the simplistic original cover. These new covers are bold and eye-catching, but I just don’t think they represent the story well other than all the nanobots or biots there.
Then there’s the German (I think) cover for BZRK Reloaded below, which comes out in April. Hopefully the UK/ANZ cover sticks with the original cover like the German cover has done. It is released in UK/ANZ in August.
Besides the German BZRK Reloaded there is the UK/ANZ cover of Light, the final book in the Gone series, which NEEDS TO HURRY ITS PRECIOUS TUSH UP (comes out in April). The pages on the side are black with a crack and white light coming out, in line with the previous coloured page edges.
And below are other covers that have been released. Click on the image to be taken to the Goodreads page.
Out of these I’m most excited for James Dashner’s new series beginning with The Eye of Minds. The cover is incredibly effective that I’m sure it will have no trouble being picked off the shelf because of it. The Night Itself is another book that I’m most looking forward to reading, and although I thought the cover might be a bit better than the cover above, this cover is still cool and a bit retro. The Oathbreaker’s Shadow looks like something I’ll enjoy too.
As for an adult release, Samantha Shannon’s first book, The Bone Season, in a possible seven book series had its cover and synopsis revealed and it sounds highly intriguing. The cover isn’t all that WOW! though, but it must represent something in the book.
Which covers do you like best? Which books are you most looking forward to reading?
