I love them! Like love LOVE them. Not just like-love. Love-love.
These new covers were released yesterday on wired.com. This is also the first reveal (that I know of) for Shades of Earth, which is to be released January 2013.
I have read and reviewed both Across the Universe and A Million Suns (not yet posted), and truly enjoyed both books, but I completely agree with the Wired article. These new covers will definitely increase the number of readers. My brother read Across the Universe and liked it as well. I decided to ask him which book he would pick up, if he saw both copies of Across the Universe in the bookstore.
As much as I hate to admit it, I do tend to judge a book by it's cover, and I know I'm not the only one. A cover won't make me not read a book, but we tend to pick up books that catch our eye.
All in all, I love the new covers, and I think more guys will be tempted to check out the new series. Now I am even more excited for January to come, and for me to get my greedy hands on Shades of Earth!
Much love, Samantha
