What do you think? I think I prefer the UK cover, but both are pretty awesome! I like the moths coming out of Moth's hair, like her hair could be her own wings.

Next up, the US cover for With All My Soul, the seventh and final book in Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series, has been released!

Beautiful, huh?

So these next covers, they may be old news for you, but I've only just discovered them so thought I would share. Jeri Smith-Ready's Shade trilogy has had it's covers updated in the US - from what I can see, they were released last year, but I live under a rock, obviously. These are the new covers (each cover links to it's corresponding Goodreads page):

Strange Chemistry have signed a new author! They have signed "a truly wonderful talent", Bryony Pearce, who's first book is the award winning Angel's Fury, which was published by Egmont in 2011. Her novel The Weight of Souls is due from Strange Chemistry in Autumn 2013.

The Weight of Souls by Bryony Pearce - 16 year old Taylor Oh is cursed: if she is touched by the ghost of a murder victim then they pass a mark beneath her skin. She has three weeks to find their murderer and pass the mark to them - letting justice take place and sending them into the Darkness. And if she doesn't make it in time? The Darkness will come for her... She spends her life trying to avoid ghosts, make it through school where she's bullied by popular Justin and his cronies, keep her one remaining friend, and persuade her father that this is real and that she's not going crazy.

And then Justin is murdered and everything gets a whole lot worse. Justin doesn't know who killed him, so there's no obvious person for Taylor to go after. The clues she has lead her to the V Club, a vicious secret society at her school where no one is allowed to leave... And where Justin was dared to do the stunt which led to his death. Can she find out who was responsible for his murder before the Darkness comes for her? Can she put aside her hatred for her former bully to truly help him? And what happens if she starts to fall for him?
From the press release.

How AWESOME does this book sound?! I'm not sure I can wait a whole year for this! So excited!


  1. Definitely prefer the UK cover of "Falling to Ash", the hair makes for a dynamic image (and generally looks awesome).

    1. Yeah, I think I prefer the UK cover too! :)
