Hello! Cover Love is a weekly meme on Thursdays started by Shae Has Left the Room, to showcase covers that you love!
The Young World by Chris Weitz
Releasing July 29, 2014 from Little, Brown BFYR
Cover Credit: Neil Swaab, Steve Stone and Adam Swaab
Summary from Goodreads:
After a mysterious Sickness wipes out the rest of the population, the young survivors assemble into tightly run tribes. Jefferson, the reluctant leader of the Washington Square tribe, and Donna, the girl he’s secretly in love with, have carved out a precarious existence among the chaos. But when another tribe member discovers a clue that may hold the cure to the Sickness, five teens set out on a life-altering road trip to save humankind.
The tribe exchanges gunfire with enemy gangs, escapes cults and militias, braves the wilds of the subway and Central Park…and discovers truths they could never have imagined.
Why I’m loving the cover:
It’s SO pretty! The rusty letters, the dark feeling of the cover and the little splotch of color up at the top—I just love it. It sounds like a great book; NYC run by teens? What could possibly go wrong? 🙂 The city in the background, the ominousness of the cover. Awesome.
The Serpent’s Curse by Tony Abbott
Releasing October 7, 2014 from Katherine Tegen Books
Cover Credit: Bill Perkins (correct me if I am wrong, sorry!)
Small snippet of summary from Goodreads because full one contains spoilers:
The Serpent’s Curse is the second full-length novel in the Copernicus Legacy, an epic tween adventure series that New York Times bestselling author Ridley Pearson says is “full of mystery and intrigue.”
Why I am loving the cover:
When I first saw this cover, I thought it was an old car being swept by a flood into an old, fancy mansion. When I looked at it up close, I saw that it was a boat in the canals of Venice. I love the art, and I love the series logo. The art could easily be a photo, it is SO good! It looks real, and I LOVE IT.
What covers are YOU loving on?
Haha, THE YOUNG WORLD makes me want to sing Les Mis songs.
