Cover Talk: New Sarah Dessen Covers!

I am a huge Sarah Dessen fan (who is counting down to her newest book yet?) and so I was excited to hear that all of her books are getting a cover facelift. I think that the previous covers are all very pretty and nice, but I have to admit...these new covers are hot and eye-catching!

Check it out:

Okay, so how much do you love that fun design and the bright colors? So pretty, so fun!

The covers are currently being revealed throughout the blogosphere, but you can check out Sarah-land to see where the various covers are!

What do you think?

I don't get the glass and the butterfies one, it's pretty but I don't get it.

And In the That Summer one... there is no romantic couple - unless you count Ashley and her bf and Haven's dad and girlfriend so that cover made no sense to me either - though I thought it was pretty

Because of the glasses and the beach I thought it was more appropriate for Keeping the Moon.

I'm not sure if I like the old covers or new covers better but I do adore both of them. These will definitely catch more teens that haven't read Sarah Dessen yet, with the bright colors and all!

I think it's interesting that the more famous an author gets, the bigger her name appears on book covers. These facelifts definitely have bigger bylines, and I noticed the same thing in Tamora Pierce's newest series. YA books don't get it as much as adult books, and yet...I'm certain the idea is to make it more eye-catching and sellable. And in this case it luckily looks attractive, not just yell-y :)

I'm not sure how I feel about these changes because I am very used to the old covers. However the sunglasses do a great job of conveying summer so that's good.

I love all of these covers! I do love the original ones more, but these aren't horrible. Thanks for sharing! :)

It's the colors I like more than the graphics themselves.

Oh, I love these covers so much! Every time I see a new one, I get even more excited. So far my favorite is the one with the glass and butterflies - how gorgeous is that?! All of the covers scream SUMMER! and I think Sarah's readership is definitely going to be expanded since this will encourage a whole new set of readers to pick up the books. I loved the old covers, don't get me wrong, but these are so beautiful...though I am apprehensive to see the covers for Just Listen and The Truth About Forever because they have my favorite old covers (and they're my favorite books so of course I'll be more sensitive to how the cover fits in with the story!)
