Coverflips.




Coverflips is back. It's like this feature has disappeared off of the face of the earth, but I have found it. 

Lets crack on...

In the end, there is a grave. 

Lena and Ethan become bound together by a deep, powerful love. But Lena is cursed and on her sixteenth birthday, her fate will be decided.Ethan never even saw it coming.

MY THOUGHTS

 As you probably already know, I am not a huge fan of movie covers for books. If I do not agree with the casting of the characters and I see the cover before I have read it, it would alter my imagination of the characters and whilst I am reading the book I would keep referring to the pictures of the actors questioning why they do not look like the people I imagined. I like the cover on the right, it looks mysterious and dark. I would have to read this book to give a real review on whether the cover on the write is fitting for the storyline. 




THE FIFTH WAVE 

1610112819172282After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker.

Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

MY THOUGHTS
 The covers are very alike and I think that both of them reflect the storyline in a very basic way, by only showing one person on the front. I think the cover on the right is slightly more futuristic as opposed to the cover on left, it reminds me of space... whereas the cover on the right there is slightly more recognition about the fact that it is indeed Earth. I like both covers. 

(A/N: Be prepared for a possible fifth wave news update!)




ELSEWHERE

3594101011086
Killed in a hit-and-run accident, Liz's 'life' takes an unexpected turn. She knows that she will never marry, have children or maybe never even fall in love - but in the land called Elsewhere, things carry on pretty much as normal.


MY THOUGHTS
I have recently read this book, so be prepared for a possible review. Anyway like both covers, however the cover on the left looks slightly more dated compared to the cover on the right, but it also has more relevance to the story as the cover on the right. 





AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES 
1718874449750
Katherine V thought boys were gross
Katherine X just wanted to be friends
Katherine XVIII dumped him in an e-mail
K-19 broke his heart 
When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type happens to be girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.

On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun--but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl. Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.

MY THOUGHTS
 I love John Green's book covers and you will be pleased to hear that I am very pleased with both of these covers. The cover on the left is colourful, interesting and enticing. It also has full relevance to the story (thankfully). The cover on the right is modern, attractive and simplistic. If you have not read the book, you would be wondering how the two are alike or could connect to each other in anyway. Throughout the book Colin Singleton is searching for eureka moment (hence the light bulb), and half way through the book he does indeed have his eureka moment causing him to produce many maths equations.  



I hope you have enjoyed this weeks coverflips and I am hoping to make this a regular thing!
