Cover Reveals: Uglies/Pretties/Specials - Scott Westerfeld

Hot off the press I've got some brand spanking new covers to show you guys for the Uglies books by Scott Westerfeld. Uglies, Pretties and Specials have all been rebranded and are being rereleased by S&S at the end of the month.

What do you guys think of the jackets? I really love them - they remind me a little of the Gone series by Michael Grant and I'm a massive, massive fan of those covers. Good job, S&S!


  1. This is about the 3rd cover I've seen from their rebranding. I wonder what they are trying to accomplish by changing them so much. These are okay, but I agree, I like the originals better. I do like that they are somewhat gender neutral, but I'm a little peeved at the tagline at the top. "before the hunger games..." Is that really necessary?

  2. ^I agree with Najela. This "Before The Hunger Games" crap really bugs me. This series is quite popular (at least it is in my area) so why would it even need a tagline like this? It irks me. They may as well just said, "BUY ME" because when I read that tagline, that's what I think they're trying to say. It's kind of desperate looking.

    However, I like the cover art itself. The eye in the word looks really cool.


Thank you kindly for the comment, you sweet thing.
