HON Awakened COVER!!! (UK)

I am freaking over this. I love this series. I was on amazon and came across this. OMG. It's AWAKENED. By the way this is just the UK cover only. The US haven't released theirs yet. I see they've gone for a light green this time. I've always loved this font and can't find it anywhere. The patterns are always cool aswell. I just can't get over this. It is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How COOL? VERY! I Love it. What do you think. It looks amazing as always. Sorry for those of you in USA.

The Lost Saint COVER!!!

The cover to THE LOST SAINT has finally been released. It is a sequel to The Dark Divine which so far is rumored to be a trilogy after egmont bought rights to the third book. I love the way it carries on with the theme of The Dark Divine with the the legs nail polish and blowin' in da breeze matieral. The dark divine:
See it totally matches the theme. It love the dark edgy gothic romance of the effect on both. I seriously can not wait for this to come out. It's going to be immense. The Lost Saint, sounds amaaaaaazing. I have three words: I LOVE IT

The Dark Divine - Bree Desapin - UK v US Cover

The choice is easy for me. US wins. Fonts and placing are so much better. I luurved the UK when I saw it in Waterstones but then I typed it in on GoOgLe and I saw the US cover and just like it more. It had more of the edgy dark romance feel to it. The gothic creepy style with the romatic italicised part. Also the Pen Name font and placing is better on the US.

The piture in its self I <3 I love the feet and the flowy purple material. It's really dark but passionate. Overall the US wins for me hands down today but comment. Which do you prefer.

The Passage - Justin Cronin - UK v US Cover


Completely different covers. UK: Amazing, gloomy, mysterious, dark, edgy. US:
"Mommy can I go on the conputer" says the three year old sitting by his mac.
"Sure thing sweety pie"
"Thanks mommy" He types into google 'Pretty Woods'. He finds a picture of Bland trees that are blue with a bit of yellow in the middle and thinks 'Ooooh thats pretty' but really its not. After all he's just a kid. He wants to put some writing on but he's young so he cant make it look good. He just mashes on the words THE PASSAGE A NOVEL JUSTIN CRONIN. It looks very bad but he thinks its good. Also the cover has no relevance to what it's suposed to be about.

The UK cover has that sort of edgy dark feel to it. The fact that it is shiny adds the darkness because at night, curtains closed lying in bed lamp on you look at the bookshelf and you see this shiny reflective girl with mourning dark eyes. Creepy. This is what I mean by SHINY:


See what I mean. TOTALLY creepy. It's generally better and suits the book more whereas the US looks like a toddlers has found a picture and stuck some lousy writing on you see. I hate the US cover and I would never pick it up in a shop and if I knew it was an amazing (like I did before I managed to get my hands ona signed copy) I would have got the UK covered one from an online store. I really just think the US cover is bad apart from the 'A NOVEL' bit. I love the way that although the UK cover is CREEEEEEPY it has the white writing saying 'Something is coming' It's awesome.

Overall I luuurv the UK cover the Best. :) Well done ORION books you have created a rockin' cover.

It makes you realise the we should value life. What we take for granted could hep someon else out there. Life is short, thank for what you've got. 

It all starts of at this boarding school. Trix's mum is a famous movie star who has remarried a famous sports agent. Her real dad is a alchahol junkie and she has no siblings. She see's a newspaper articale about how when a girl went missing they raised loads of money, so she's uses this idea. Trix and her friends

He steals one of Trix's T-Shirts and cuts it up he then sends it to the funders helping to find Trix. After this incident the kids decide to leave and stay with Jade's apoling brothers.

Anyway at the time Trix's mum is up for an award in london and wants to show up there and explain everything. She manages to get someone to get them in and stays at Jazz's hideout for homeless kids. When they go to the event to get in the have some unexpected security but Jazz distracts the police so they can get it. When they get in their is loads of gasping and awe, as they explain the whole whilst her mother pretends to be glad but just wants the atention back on her. At the end Trix changes her name to Erica Jane, ditches school and her and Pete bell move to afria to help children and homeless children. It think it's holly's mum who adopts Jazz who goes to the school with them now, and the others carry on with a normal life

It's a good book and I would recomend it to anyone but I do think its for younger kids.

Missing Believed Crazy

Hiya Guys (ettes) Just about to start this book to your left, called Missing Believed Crazy. Basicly Trixie is a superstars daughters who is kidnapped by an unsusal gang who want atention. As we all know Terence is a amazing writer so I can't wait to find out what happens. If I did know i would have put spoilers in this. I think the cover rocks it is amazing, like a newspaper. Although I have the paperback it still has the little inside flap which is pretty awsome. It has no blurb just little snippets of newspaper dotted around all about Trixie. Can wait to indulge into this book and as soon I've finished it I will do a review. :)
