Cover Crush: Revolution NEW Cover

I soooo love book covers. Honestly I've been known to drag my sister through the bookstore to show her a cover I like or hunt down certain students to show them.  It really is like I have a crush.  So once a week I like to highlight these covers.

This week I'm crushing on:

Revolution by Jennifery Donnelly
The new (?) paperback cover

When I saw this cover for Revolution I stopped me in my tracks!  There is just something about it that makes me stare.  There isn't a lot her, but somehow it just conveys emotion - a just type of sadness or longing or something.  Then there's that key.  Why is it there???? Why does it seem so important??  Such a simple cover that totally grabs me.  I was never real fond of the hardcover version, and to be honest I know it turned off some of my 7th grade readers.  This one I think will interest them much more.  
Well done!


  1. OOOOOH WOW! I LOVE this one. What a great redo. I've not read the book, but I hope it fits in with the story line. It really makes me want to read it now.!

  2. Yeah, this one definitely is better than the hardcover. Looks a lot more updated and I can see the students liking it better. Cool cover find!

  3. I agree, it's a striking cover! So soft and mysterious, love it!
    Is that the paperback version? I have the hardcover and I find it equally gorgeous, but it does have a more serious feel than this one.

  4. The key is definitely important! I just read this book a couple of weeks ago. I liked the hardcover jacket just fine, but I do think this one is better.
