Cover Reveal: Until I Die - Amy Plum

So as you may have seen the cover of Until I Die by Amy Plum has just been released - if you head over to Amy's blog you can find details of how to win an ARC of the book, a lonnnng time before the release date. Get going!

What do you think of it? I like it, I'm not crazy about it and I don't think it would necessarily grab me in a book shop...but then again I'm not the target audience for the series so I wouldn't really go for any book with this kind of cover. However, I do think it fits in really well with the cover for Die for Me and branding is so important. Also, I think it holds up very nicely against covers for other books in the genre so it's all good.

So without further ado, here it is:

Thoughts? And for anyone who's read book one already - based on my post yesterday, should I give it a go or not?


  1. I quite liked Die for me - it isn't a zombie book at all, they characters just come back to life when they've died hence the kind of zombie connection. But it's a very loose connection.

    I don't overly like this new cover - I think it's pretty but I don't think it fits all that well with the last book. And maybe dare I say it but there are just too many swirls!

    I'd say give the first one a read, but in my opinion it was good but nothing really original or special. A very typical paranormal YA that is very much inspired by Twilight.

  2. I completely agree with Jules - I enjoyed DIE FOR ME - and the zombie connection really isn't justified, and probably doesn't help to encourage prospective readers!

    I'm not overly keen on this cover - I like that it's in keeping with the first book, but I agree that there are a few too many swirls! I like the change of colour though.

    Although Plum is on record as saying that she was inspired to write after reading Twilight, I really didn't find anything more in common with Meyer's work, than in any other current paranormal YA novels. (Ok, so that may not be saying a whole lot...)

    I'm looking forward to reading the second instalment personally. The first one had a great setting, interesting characters, and lots of possibilities for future adventures. Plum has lived in Paris (and although American, lives in France now) and so wrote the setting beautifully.

  3. I really like it! Not sure whether I'd read the book, but I love the design.

  4. Jules, Louis - thanks for that, I think I will give Die for Me a go at some point as I have heard good things about it x

  5. I have not yet read the first, but definitely want to. I think both covers are GORGEOUS. I love this one a lot.


Thank you kindly for the comment, you sweet thing.
