What's this? New covers?
That's right readers! Just released are the NEW covers for Beth Revis' ACROSS THE UNIVERSE trilogy.
I had no idea they were changing it up. After logging onto the good old net to do my morning routine of catching up with the world, I found the post on GeekDad about the new covers. Of course I had to instantly jump on board and see what was going on.
My opinion? I love them.
Penguin decided to redo the covers in an attempt to help market to a broader audience. While we all might have loved the original cover work, it did tend to only pull in YA readers. And if you have read Across the Universe, you know that readers of all ages and genders should pick this book up. The new covers are vague enough make you wonder. Techy enough to let you know. And just down right pretty. I would pick up those books in a heart beat!
We are told to never judge a book by its cover. But we all do. Admit it.
SHADES OF EARTH, book 3 of the Across the Universe trilogy, is slated to be release January 15, 2013
So there you have it!
As bummed as I will be that book three will not be made to match the original covers, I am still all over the new look. I guess I will just have to splurge and buy an all new trilogy set once book three is released!
