Cover Love: The Chaos Of Stars and Not A Drop To Drink

Hey there :)

A lot of beautiful covers have been revealed over the last few days, I thought I'll start a little recap and show you my favourites.
The first one would be The Chaos Of Stars by Kiersten White.
All right let's just step back a moment and behold this beauty.
When I first saw this cover I was like "Awwww, I love you!" It's just so simple and still so beautiful! I love the colours and the font, the little line in the right corner is really catchy.
I especially like the effect that the blue and white look like a sky full of stars. It really fits the titel perfectly.
Have you seen the little bird in the left corner? That's one of my favourite details of the cover.
Here is the official synopsis from Goodreads:

Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up.

Of course, as the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that pretty much comes with the territory. She’s also stuck with parents who barely notice her, and a house full of relatives who can’t be bothered to remember her name. After all, they are going to be around forever—and she’s a mere mortal.

Isadora’s sick of living a life where she’s only worthy of a passing glance, and when she has the chance to move to San Diego with her brother, she jumps on it. But Isadora’s quickly finding that a “normal” life comes with plenty of its own epic complications—and that there’s no such thing as a clean break when it comes to family. Much as she wants to leave her past behind, she can’t shake the ominous dreams that foretell destruction for her entire family. When it turns out there may be truth in her nightmares, Isadora has to decide whether she can abandon her divine heritage after all.

Doesn't it sound awesome?I love stories about Egyptian gods! It definitely goes onto my TBR list and I cannot wait to read it when it comes out  September 10, 2013

And I also love the cover for Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis.
The colours! Look at the colours! I love the sky and how the dark fades into yellow. There is a really dark and gloomy atmosphere here but because of the rising sun there is also hope.
The water reflecting the scene is a great element, since the book revolves around water. Water is the only hope they have and it is the reason for their devastation, therefore it reflects both colour schemes. A great metaphorical picture. (Or maybe that's just my imagination going wild :D)
This is a great cover for a post-apocalypse book and I wanted to read Not A Drop To Drink right after I read the summary for the first time, somewhere at the end of last year.
It really does sound amazing the cover seems to fit it perfectly. The book will also be released on September 10, 2013.

Here is the summary taken from Goodreads:

If she has water, she has life. 

Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most importantly, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty, or doesn't leave at all.

Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival, and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand.

But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won’t stop until they get it….

With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a barren world not so different than our own.

Wait a minute! Both books come out on the same day? Which am I supposed to read first? That's a hard decision...
But don't forget you cannot judge a book by it's cover!
What do you think of those two? And which one is your favourite?
Love and Words
