New Book Trailers
Prophecy (The Dragon King Chronicles, #1) by Ellen Oh
Through the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky, #2) by Veronica Rossi
Loving the new covers for the Sea Breeze series, but unfortunately, I’ve lost interest in her books.
Also, I very much prefer the new cover for Immortal Rules!
I’m kind of sad about the redesign for Cold Fury. I didn’t even like the book, but the model’s expression on the hardcover really made it. The new one and the sequel’s cover? Nah. They did a little better with the Immortal Rules/The Eternity Cure covers, at least. I was hoping they’d get Asian models, but I suppose getting rid of the models entirely is better than more whitewashing. I’ll take what I can get.
I still say the guy on the cover of While It Lasts is hiding a boner. He’s got the come-hither eyes (or an attempt at them) and normal people who wear cowboy hats will hold them at chest level unless they have something to hide!
Ashleigh Paige I don’t like the Cold Fury redesign either. I noticed that the Blood Eden covers removed the girl entirely. Like it was too difficult for them to put an Asian model on the cover? I am actually quite pissed they did this instead. Like they took the easy way out. Grrrr.
Kara_M I’m annoyed about that too! At least they didn’t go with the concept art that put MORE white girls on the covers. What, do they not have the money or time to look for appropriate models?
Ashleigh Paige Kara_M I frankly think they thought it wouldn’t sell. I know I am assuming but, based on prior experience, it all points to this.
My TBR pile is now groaning at all the books I want to add to it after reading this post. 😛
So excited for Falling Kingdoms. Just bought it. And can’t wait to read Free Souls too.
I so hate it when covers change. I haven’t read Cold Fury, but I much preferred the old cover. I probably wouldn’t even have looked twice at the book as something to read with the new cover.
Same with Blood of Eden. I loved The Immortal Rules’ original cover, why oh why did it have to change?! The new ones are terrible!
Eternity Cure. That is one book that I am drooling un-ladylike for!! I hope you guys snag an ARC, review it and then do a Giveaway. (Which I win) 😀
Also, I like covers that do not have the close-up of a girl in them. That’s been done to death.
arrgh! the new cover of Buzo’s book – love and other perishable items – just doesn’t do the story justice. I much prefer the australian title (good oil) and cover. why they saw the need to change it up so much is beyond me.
