cover time: insurgent!

You may or may not know how much I absolutely adore Veronica Roth's Divergent, and so when it came out that today would be big cover reveal for Insurgent I was...well, excited is putting it a tad mildly.

Guys. This is it. This cover is absolutely gorgeous for reasons I'm going to gush about. First of all, aside from the colors being two of my favorites (blue and silver) they do a great job of casting a sort of muted, melancholy overtone that pairs so well with the title. My favorite thing, however, is the tree. I'm reading the picture as the leaves of the tree being a mix of all of the factions, and given everything that happened in Divergent, the leaves are falling off and coming together, wilting, changing.

I'm so incredibly looking forward to this book. And while I'm not big on seeing the Times author bit on books, I'm so proud and happy for Veronica to have that here. Divergent more than deserved its place on that list. Is it 2012 yet?

Interesting analysis of the tree... We haven't read Divergent yet (although Kristan just got it from the library) so we can't put that much thought into this, but we do quite like the cover as part of the series, and maybe even better than the first one.

This cover is simply stunning. I was SO so excited to see it, and I'm so glad to see more cover love :)
