I really liked the cover of The Selection by Kiera Cass, mostly because the dress was pretty and the I liked the mirrored images. I liked the book--the writing is really engaging and upbeat, the plot had some good twists, and while it didn't have the emotional depth of The Hunger Games, it was a satisfying story that seemed simple at first but got more complex as you went along. I'll pick up the sequel if I have the time and it pulls me in as easily as The Selection did.
Yesterday, Kiera revealed the cover to The Elite on her blog:
It's pretty! I like how it matches the first book (it's a pet peeve of mine when cover designs change before all of the books of a series are published), but I think this one matches the first book a little too closely, sort of like the Matched trilogy.
What do you guys think? Are you getting a little tired of all the pretty dresses on YA covers?
