Cover Crazy: Insurgent

Cover Crazy is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Worms.

Here is how Cover Crazy works:
  1. Cover Crazy will be posted on Mondays.
  2. Each week I will show a cover that I am completely crazy about.
  3. The point of this meme is to admire the art and beauty of a book’s design, but I will also provide a synopsis along with the title, author, and of course cover picture and what I like about it.
  4. In the comments section below, please feel free to share your thoughts, feelings, inspirations, etc. about the cover (but be respectful about it).
  5. If you decide to start your own Cover Crazy, please give credit to The Book Worms.

My cover this week is:

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

I need to read Divergent. Man. First of all, I love that this cover sticks with the same layout as the cover of the first book. Why I love that so much I'm not sure. I also love the tree in the middle. Swirly tree has no significance to me, but I like it. The colors used are somehow eye catching and dark at the same time. Also, "ONE CHOICE CAN DESTROY YOU" totally pulls me in.

One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature

What are your thoughts on this cover?

YES OMG. I cannot wait for this book! I really like this cover, but the colours are a little awkward for me. Though, I guess it makes sense since the crest is of a tree :P Anyway, great choice! Thanks for sharing~

My favorite part of this cover is the tree. I love the swirl of leaves around it that change with the seasons. Very cool!

I love this cover! Especially since it's the same as Divergent because sometimes a series changes their covers randomly. I remember though that someone said that they didn't like the cover for Divergent, but I think that they both fit the books perfectly! Great pick this week!
