So, maybe you don’t know about YALLfest. It’s nothing to be ashamed about–I didn’t either, up until about this time two years ago. However, if you don’t know, this is the perfect time to look it up and then plan to go down to Charleston November 13-14.
If you haven’t guessed, that’s where Emily, myself and perhaps a few others plan to be that weekend. Why? Oh, only to meet our favourite authors, get our favourite books signed, and report back to you, dear readers, about everything you missed by not going to YALLfest. But, to convince you to go, we’re going to spend most of the rest of the time reminding you of all the reasons why we, personally, are looking forward to it.
Today, we have a cover reveal for Fire Falling, the second book in the Air Awakens series, by Elise Kova, and it is just as gorgeous as the first! I jumped on the Elisa Kova street team rather late in the game (er, last week) after discovering Air Awakens while prowling around Goodreads and felt that between its fantastic cover (by zwxArt) and its synopsis that it was my kind of book. Elise was nice enough to include me and Bibliobibuli despite my tardiness.
With out further ado, the cover is below. It is rather amazing if I do say so myself, as it not only is a work of art, but fully compliments the cover of book one. And you know how we here at Bibliobibuli YA feel about that.
So, I am a Cover Snob. The only thing I love more than being surrounded by a bunch of books? Being surrounded by books with absolutely amazing covers. The YA community seems to be blessed in this aspect. Covers are, more than not, artistic and capture the theme of the book. However, there are also these things called “cover redesigns” where the whole theme of the series book covers changes and then NONE OF YOUR BOOKS MATCH ANYMORE. Ahem. But these are forgiven because some are amazing, like the Shatter Me trilogy. And then you sometimes learn about amazing covers after you have bought the not as amazing cover and then you sit with your not as amazing book, which in all actuality is the exact same book, and repent that you did not find the more amazing cover sooner. Or, the more amazing cover is only on books in Australia and shipping would cost more than the book itself and your first born child. The Abhorsen series, you tease, you.
