Annoying book cover changes!

Hey guys! I have been wanting to do this post for a really long time but I’ve never found the time to write it until now! I’ve just always felt so annoyed when a publisher has randomly changed the covers halfway through a series and I feel like venting about it! I hope you enjoy and I’m curious to see if you agree with me on any of these!

1) An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

This has by far been the most annoying series for cover changes. I love these books but the covers are so damn mismatched. I really wish the publishers would just make up their minds because this series looks a complete mess. All of the books are different sizes too! Reaper is the biggest book and then Torch is so tiny in comparison! It’s like the small UK hardback size and it just bugs me. I just want to throw them all out and buy matching covers but I have looked everywhere and these are currently the only UK covers, ugh! I could buy the American ones but I can’t make up my mind if I like them or not. I swear I’ll be so mad if the fourth book is different AGAIN.

February Wrap Up!

I am pretty pleased with the books I managed to read this month! Although I read more at the start of the month than I did at the end!

Nevernight1) Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

I’m still unsure of whether or not I will read the second book in this series! I thought it was a standalone and I’m a little disappointed that it’s not because it was a good story but I don’t feel like I can commit to a series? Like the start of the book was so boring and confusing but then it got so damn good and I really enjoyed the second half! Maybe if the cover is as gorgeous as this one I’ll get it because I can’t resist having a pretty cover on my shelf, it’s so bad.

For the perfect love, what would you be willing to lose?

It’s been a shattering year for seventeen-year-old Zoe, who’s still reeling from her father’s shocking death in a caving accident and her neighbors’ mysterious disappearance from their own home. Then on a terrifying subzero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in the woods–only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X.

X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from a hell called the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe’s evil attacker and others like him. X is forbidden from revealing himself to anyone other than his prey, but he casts aside the Lowlands’ rules for Zoe. As they learn more about their colliding worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future. But escaping the Lowlands and the ties that bind X might mean the ultimate sacrifice for them both.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff: I am two hundred pages into Nevernight and it is not what I expected at all! Sure I am enjoying it but it is a lot different than what I am used to! This is my first book by Jay Kristoff and I was a little thrown by his writing style. It’s a really heavy read because he uses a lot of descriptions, smilies and metaphors. Some of them were a struggle to make sense of and I had to read them a few times! Another thing that bugged me are the footnotes at the bottom of the page that sometimes take up half the page. I did not enjoy reading the footnotes so I decided to skip them altogether and when I did that, I enjoyed the story a lot more! So I will finish this book but I am undecided whether I will read the next one because I hadn’t realised it was part of a series, I thought it was a standalone! I’ll have to see when I reach the end and decide if I like the story enough to dedicate myself to a series.

The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles: I am really loving this book! I am reading it on Kindle and I am about 30% in and it’s such a unique and interesting story! It’s so different and fresh to what I normally read! So far I am hooked on the story, the writing just pulls you in from the very first page! I have no idea where this story is going but I am excited to find out and I think I’ll have it finished today or tomorrow! If I had time I could easily read it in one sitting! Highly recommend this, guys!
