So, rumors have been circulating that Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy will be getting a face lift. I can't seem to find solid proof of this, but word out on Twitter is that they will be replacing these lovely, perfect covers...
I haven't been able to find a new cover for The Sweet Far Thing, but these are supposedly the new covers for A Great and Terrible Beauty and Rebel Angels. I hope to God that these new covers aren't actually going to be the new ones...the originals have this timeless beauty and perfection to them that just can't be replaced. And the new ones are just...ew. Ew. It's like, hello, eye make-up! Can't stand them.
I know this is all about sales and marketing and selling more books (and I'm all for selling more books and having people read this marvelous series), but I will be treasuring my copies with the original covers, of that you can be sure!
What are your thoughts?
ETA: Rumors are false about these being the new American covers--they're the Australian ones! Sorry for the confusion, everyone! Moral of lesson: don't believe everything you hear on Twitter!
