Monday's Challenges

Question 1:
What is your favorite cover that has been revealed this summer and why? Post a link or picture of the cover if you want.

I'll give you three!  I absolutely love the covers for Shatter Me, Destroy Me, and Unravel Me!  They are beautiful and attention grabbing!


Question 2:
Do you rely on the cover to help you choose whether you want to read a book or not?

I totally believe book covers help draw readers in, but I don't rely on the cover alone when picking out a book to read. I look at the cover, the title, the author's name, read the flap, and then maybe the first couple of pages.


  1. Great list! Pushing the Limits was so good!

    I was this close to using the new cover for Shatter Me for my answer. Those new covers are so incredibly gorgeous yet almost a little haunting. I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THEM.

  2. I also have Until I Die in my pile. Those covers are gorgeous. I hope you enjoy your books! :)

  3. Wow, your entire post is made up of beautiful covers. I loved the predecessor to Until I Die, definitely lived up to its cover for me, I hope Until I Die does too. Good luck and happy reading!

  4. Tahereh's cover's are beautiful! But I liked the original Shatter Me cover too. I haven't put Pushing the Limits on my goal, but I definitely want to read it! Good luck on your goals.
