Julie Reece Wonder why they do that? Most people get attached to the covers of a series they love, right?

Seriously. And the covers to the first two books in the trilogy are STUNNING. I honestly don't see why they changed the covers.

I think that they are making a hardcover version of Shades of Earth.

Seriously. Did you see the promo cover? It was a purple sky set in space and had a bunch of stars and it looked SO GOOD. I can't believe that they changed it.

I'm not too sure. There was a promo cover with a purple sky set in space that said stuff like "Shades of Earth" and "Cover Not Final", but I've never seen this before. I just hate how Shades of Earth won't match the original covers on a bookshelf. :/

Aneeqah I am so mad about this as well! I'm totally considering sending an email to PenguinTeen to ask them to do a 3rd cover matching the first 2.


message 12: by Reagan (new)

Reagan Yeah. I don't prefer the covers of the first two books either, but this is crazy..

I wish they had kept the same design going. I also wish A Million Suns had a reversible cover like Across the Universe did. That was so awesome! :D

You don't like the Across the Universe or A Million Suns covers?! :O


message 15: by Reagan (new)

Reagan No. They seem kind of bland to me. I haven't read them. Are they good?

The books are so amazing. And the covers represent the books the books really well. Love those covers, and I'm so mad about this cover change.


message 17: by Reagan (new)

Reagan Oh well. I saw the cover for Scarlet. That's the same!!


message 18: by Jesse (new)

Jesse It's just horrible, and makes no sense. At first I thought it was a joke. Def not buying that one, maybe the kindle version.


message 19: by Judy (new)

Judy Isn't this cover for another edition? Won't the matching cover be released as soon as the publishing companies decide to publish that edition? Ok I hope they do cause this cover is shit haha.


message 20: by Brad (new)

Brad I don't think so. They changed the Across the Universe covers to appeal to more reading audiences, so this cover is the U.S.
edition. I wish that they would match though, but they won't :(

Anne Fermin Hi! Hmm, was there a love triangle in this series? :)

Hey there! There's is sort of a love triangle in SHADES OF EARTH (book three), but not really. You'll have to read it to know what I mean :D

Anne Fermin Thanks so much! :)
