So, these are the new covers for Nightshade and Wolfsbane. The Nightshade cover is for the paperback, but it's my understanding that the Wolfsbane cover is for the hardcover.
I just have to say, I am NOT at all happy with these covers. I'm really sorry, Andrea and Penguin. I love you both, but I feel like these covers don't even come close to the awesomeness that was the first two covers. I know it's kind of taboo to say this, but they look like cheap fiction factory series books to me.
Look at these covers. Especially Nightshade. It is gorgeous! It's what made me want to read the book in the first place. I'm not saying that they shouldn't change them, because honestly, these covers don't really reflect Calla (who refuses to put on any makeup), but if you're going to change them, they need to be something just as fantastically eye-catching as these are.
That is only one small blogger's opinion! Hope you don't hate me for it, because I still love you! I would just hate for someone to pass them by. I am not as big of a cover judger as some are!! :)
P.S. There's a Twitition to get back the old Wolfsbane cover! Check it out here!
Due to the HUGE response about the covers, (see, this is why I actually speak my mind) the awesome folks at Penguin have decided to take another look at the covers and discuss everything that has been said. Andrea's editor, Jill, spoke on Andrea's blog and had this to say:
She is also giving away FIVE copies of Wolfsbane (ARCs) to someone who comments with their favorite Nightshade quote, so that is really nice. (Contest ends 3/17)Hey, everyone. Editor Jill here. Andrea was nice enough to let me jump onto her blog to thank you all for your enthusiasm and feedback on the Wolfsbane jacket design. You’ve given us a lot to think about, and we’ll be having many Wolfsbane--related meetings here at Penguin headquarters in the coming weeks.
Thanks so much to Penguin for listening to your fans!! That's why we love you!
