Cover Crazy (5)


"Cover Crazy" is a meme hosted by The Book Worms to gush over talk about cover designs that we love!

Insurgent
by Veronica Roth

This cover was announced on EW last week, so I know that it has pretty much already made the rounds in the blog world. However, how can I NOT feature this gorgeous creation this week?!

First, I love the color scheme on this one. The sky is very eerie. It reminds me of the greenish color that happens right before a really bad storm (actually, where I grew up I associated this with tornadoes for some reason). The scary storm clouds are definitely an indicator of the impending chaos that we were left contemplating at the end of Divergent.

Second, the skyline is still there--but better. Why? Because they added the train! YAY! The train pops up and plays a pivot role so many times  in Divergent that I think it's important that they include it. (Also, it's the last place we saw our characters, so it's PERFECT.)

Finally, the Amity symbol--how gorgeous is that?! I seriously can't get over how simply stunning that image is. The dead tree with both spring's green leaves and autumn's red/yellow/orange leaves swirling around it is simply awesome.

I can't wait to read this one! It's on my list as part of my 2012 sequels challenge. :-)



What do you think? Gorgeous? 
Do you like it more or less than Divergent?

I really like the Amity symbol as well even though I didn't know what it was called until now! The leaves swirling around the tree and changing colors to represent the seasons is neat.
