Cover Reveal: Sever by Lauren DeStefano

You guys, THIS is why people shouldn't have jobs. Especially new jobs that require 50-60 hours a week and make it really hard to sneak on Twitter and Blogger during the day. Because if you suddenly find yourself strapped with a very demanding (albeit fun) job, you might miss a massively awesome cover reveal and be behind the times and feel very, very sad.

Stop pointing those accusing stares at me! I would never try to sneak on social media sites during work, or go into a slightly catatonic fit when I realized I missed the release of the Sever cover. Noooooooo.

(SSSSHHHHHHHHHH, don't tell!)

I will never love a cover the way I loved Wither. However, I do still think that Lizzie Bromley is a genius of a designer, and I did feel like Fever's cover captured the feeling of the book. Therefore, I am intrigued by the vaguely Stepford-wivish quality to this one! WHATEVER DOES IT MEAN?

Listen, all I'm saying is the end of Fever may have actually caused me to have an aneurysm. I don't think a book has ever--EVER I tell you!--caused me to walk away still feeling that emotionally frustrated (in both good and bad ways). I got weeks of good workouts after I finished it because I would have imaginary conversations between Linden and Rhine in my head and these confrontations would be FUELED WITH SUCH PASSION that I would pull a Forrest Gump and not even notice when 5 miles had passed.

Summary: Sever come to meeeeeeeeeee. (Accio Sever!)

Also, Go Team Linden.


  1. Love the new cover!! I absolutely loved the cover of Wither and wasn't the biggest fan of Fever's cover, but I do like this one! I also like her dress...
    I'm excited about this book, definitely want to know what's gonna happen!

    1. You know, I was disappointed by the Fever cover when it was released (especially because they made such a huge deal about it), but looking at the three I think Sever is the weakest, production wise. I wish they hadn't changed the model.

      Thematically it feels so different though. And now, the more I look at it (and the wedding ring, and the un-caged bird) I wonder.... is she wearing some sort of wedding dress? (!!)

  2. The first one is definitely my favorite! Wonder why they didn't keep the same model for all three?


Love all y'all! Thanks for commenting!!
