Cover Alert! TEAM UK

This week, the covers quite a few UK versions of upcoming books have been released.  Fortunately, none of them make me want to gauge my eyes out (I'm looking at you UK cover of Dark Life), which is always a plus.

Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson - May 18th (USA) - August 5th (UK)
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater - July 20th (USA) - July 5th (UK)

I thing we've moved from the Twilight-effect to the Linger-effect!  Which I am totally approving of.  Even though I love the US cover of Shiver, for some reason the black-and-white on the UK version emphasised the cold in the book.  Green is lovely and warm - but Shiver was all about the freezing weather...  As for Claire de Lune, I much prefer the UK cover and will likely wait for this edition to come out.  

Oh, and check out the release dates for Linger!  We (currently) are getting it 15 days early!

Firespell by Chloe Neill - Already out in the US! - June 17th (UK)
Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon - June 8th (USA) - June 10th (UK)

Both of these have revamped the US covers.  Not sure if they've improved on the original, but either way, they are still lovely. I am definitely getting the UK version of Firespell, as even though the covers are similar, the quality of the actual paperback is bound to be better than the flimsy US version.  *grumbles*  


  1. I actually much prefer the UK cover of Linger to the US version. I think I may be in the minority here. I didn't know we were getting it 15 days early though. That doesn't often happen!

  2. U.K. really likes the dark, bloody covers, I've noticed. And Firespell looks exactly like the U.S. version but with a different model

  3. @Leanna - I am not completely sure which I prefer. Just happy loving both! And, yeah, I was really surprised to see we are getting Linger so much sooner than the US... I think there will be a lot of orders on The Book Depository for people who can't wait for it!

    @Kirthi - Lol. The bloodier, the better. And yeah, the Firespell cover is the same - except for the candle being like 10x bigger.... not sure what to make of that.

  4. I'm going to pre-order Linger for sure! I just tried to order Jeri Smith-Ready's 'Shade' on Amazon, and it's not available for pre-order at all, which means I'll have to buy it on import (expensive!) or wait for the paperback? Boo!

  5. I love the Claire De Lune cover. I think I like the US one of Linger better though. I've had enough of black and white.
