Don’t You Just Love it When Your Series Book Covers Match?!

People always say: “You should never judge a book by it’s cover.” But here on Cover Stories, that is exactly what I do.

There are so many great books that are being published this year, a lot of them sequels or part of a series/trilogy and if there is one thing I love it is series whose covers match. Here are some of my favourite new releases this year that carry on the book cover beauty of their series…

 

One thing I really love with Claudia Grays series is the colours, they really are so stunning. That combined with the cityscapes is what makes these books so visually appealing.

 

The first thing I noticed that I LOVE about this series is that it’s the same girl on both book covers! So often even though it is the same character throughout the book cover features a different person and it really bugs me. But this one is perfect. Plus, I think my favourite thing about the first book was the title, so I am so please to see that the second book has kept the same theme.

 

SWOON! I can’t get across just how much I love these book covers enough. They are just stunning! And again, they stand out as separate books but still manage to keep the same theme. These have got to be my favourite!

 

Again, love that the same models have been used for both books. I also really like how the simple thing of swapping the two worlds (moving Earth from bottom to top and L’eihr from top to bottom) makes these book covers look so cool when next to each other.

 

I really loved the simplicity of the first cover, and it fit perfectly with the mystery surrounding the book and the very limited information we were given before. I thought that book 1 was clever, but they have done it again with the second one. By simply removing a hand and adding a bit of red to the cover, fans have gone crazy needing to know what happens in the second book!

  

Ok, so the third book isn’t released until next year, but I had to line them all up because they just look SO DARN GOOD together! I really love this series and I love the covers and the theme they follow. A pretty dress and a sword makes these covers ‘pretty meets deadly’ which is this trilogy to a tee!

    Yessss! It annoys me to no end when series don’t match! I tend to not buy the physical books too if they don’t match. My favourite is also the ATPOY covers! SO gorgeous 😀

      I normally wait until the entire series is out to buy them as papaerback, just incase they swap the covers part way through like what they did with the Anna and the French Kiss trilogy. I would have been so mad if I had already bought 1&2 from that series and then my 3rd book didn’t match! Thanks for stopping by, Happy Reading! 🙂

    I want to own A thousand pieces of you just because of that cover. I liked the story, but perhaps not enough to buy it. The cover though totally makes me want to put it on the shelves.

    THOSE DRESSES. I love how the covers look together.

      I have had ATPOY sat on my book shelf FOREVER and still haven’t read it! I know right, such pretty covers, the dresses are gorgeous 🙂

    Agreeeeed 100%!!! I love it when series match- it makes so much sense. I think being an art director at a publisher must be so much fun.

    Not only do I love it when they match, but despise it when they don’t. I like to be able to look at a book and know what series it goes to. Some of the books have like 101 covers too. What’s up with that? Why can’t the ebook cover look like the printed copy? Just sayin’.

      Yes that always bugs me! I also hate it when it’s the US Cover that is advertised everywhere and then I buy it and get some rubbish UK cover. Always makes me sad!
