We've Got It Covered {4}: Patiently Awaiting

Hey Remarkable Readers,
I was on twitter when I noticed not one but, two new book covers!  Sever, the last installment in Lauren DeStefano's Wither Trilogy, now has a cover.  Asunder, sequel to Incarnate by Jodi Meadows, has also been covered!  Check them out below!

Sever by Lauren Destefano
Sever (The Chemical Garden, #3)

What if you knew exactly when you would die? In the not-too-distant future, genetic engineering has turned every newborn into a ticking time bomb — males only live to age 25 and females only live to age 20.
In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out. When 16-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by "the Gatherers" to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Rhine has only one purpose after she has been married to her new husband, Linden: to escape and find her twin brother.
But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant to whom she is dangerously attracted, Rhine is desperate to learn the truth and protect those closest to her. But, as her sister wife Cecily keeps insisting, her role may be much bigger than that.
In the first two books of the Chemical Garden trilogy, Wither and Fever, Rhine struggles to escape the mansion and then to navigate the brutal world outside. Now in Sever, the third and final book, Rhine uncovers some shattering truths about the past that her parents never had the chance to tell her and the alarming implications regarding her own genes. She may be the one who can save the human race.

I read Wither and enjoyed it, although it took quite a while to read.  I have yet to read Fever but, I liked the cover for Wither the most out of all three.  Fever takes second place and Sever takes third.  Although I still like this cover, I don't love the color scheme.

Asunder by Jodi Meadows
Asunder (Newsoul, #2)DARKSOULS
Ana has always been the only one. Asunder. Apart. But after Templedark, when many residents of Heart were lost forever, some hold Ana responsible for the darksouls–and the newsouls who may be born in their place.
Many are afraid of Ana’s presence, a constant reminder of unstoppable changes and the unknown. When sylph begin behaving differently toward her and people turn violent, Ana must learn to stand up not only for herself but for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
Ana was told that nosouls can’t love. But newsouls? More than anything, she wants to live and love as an equal among the citizens of Heart, but even when Sam professes his deepest feelings, it seems impossible to overcome a lifetime of rejection.
In this second book in the Incarnate trilogy, Ana discovers the truth about reincarnation and will have to find a way to embrace love and make her young life meaningful. Once again, Jodi Meadows explores the extraordinary beauty and shadowed depths of the soul in a story equal parts epic romance and captivating fantasy.

I read Incarnate and really enjoyed it so I can't wait to check out Asunder!  The cover is definitely beautiful, although I like Incarnate's a bit more.  Who knows, though?  Maybe once I read the book, I'll like this cover more.  

What do you think of these new covers?


  1. I love both covers! Asunder's cover seems a bit darker than Incarnate's. Maybe that will reflect the feel of the book as well.

  2. Ugh I think those Chemical Garden covers just get worse and worse. The newest one it the worst for me. The girl does not look as glamorous, clearly the model keeps changing (why) and she's sitting too... properly? IDK but this is by far the least appealing cover reveal this week :(

    1. I also think it's the least appealing of the series. I liked the first one best and I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought the model's been changed!

  3. Both covers are great.:) I haven't gotten the chance to read Incarnate yet, but hopefully I will soon. And I loved WIther and Fever and can't wait to read Sever.


What did you think of my post? Have you read any of the books I may have spoke about? Do you agree with what I said? Etc. I love hearing from my readers!!
