Cover Reveals

I just HAD to write this blog post so I could share the covers for the UK copy of Forever by the magnificent Maggie Stiefvater and Passion by Lauren Kate.

Do you remember what the US hardback cover for Forever looks like? It looks like this....

Did I mention that red is my favourite colour? *grin*. The UK cover has JUST been released and I have to say that I absolutely love it and will be adding both of these to my Maggie collection when they're released. Not seen it yet? Have a gander...

I think that both covers are absolutely beautiful but the UK cover scares me the most as it looks kind of sad. This may be my own personal association of rain with sadness but to me the raindrops look look like teardros and the rose appears to be wilting. I hope this is not an omen, as I'm a big fan of happy endings! I'm really, really excited to see what Maggie is going to come up with for the book trailer and I know she's thinking about it now.

So, not only has Maggie revealed her cover this week but now Lauren Kate has revealed the cover for Passion (the sequel to Fallen and Torment). You remember how beautiful the Fallen and Torment Covers are, right?

Well here's the cover for Passion...
So what do you guys think? Whilst I really like the cover for passion, it looks very CGI if that makes sense whereas the first two book covers looked like they featured a real live model. Also, the dress is different and I'm not sure how I feel about this.

Let me know your thoughts.


  1. I rather like the UK cover for Forever. It's very striking. I agree with what you say about the Passion cover looking very CGI. I found the artist's page on deviantART and her original image looks different:

  2. While I really love the UK cover of Forever (way more than the US one) I cannot stand that Passion cover. The proportions seem of, the figure looks like a manekin and also reminds me of the creepy ghost girls from films like The Grudge or Ringu. Such a shame as I really loved the first two covers.

  3. I LOVE the Forever UK cover. I'm in the minority because I really don't like the red cover. I'm also very disappointed in the coverfr Passion. It just doesn't seem to fit the others.

  4. I like Torment/Fallen cover better then Passion, but I still enjoy it.

    Forever U.S cover I like better then the other one.

  5. I love the UK Forever cover, but the Passion one is creeping me out. I really don't like it.

  6. Keri - WOW, didn't realise it came from Deviant Art, thanks for the link!
