Cover Revealed: Allegiant and What's

Just a quick update:

Two gorgeous YA covers have been revealed in the last few days.
The first one is Allegiant by Veronica Roth. It will be published in October and is the last book in a triology that started with Divergent.
I am not posting the official summary because of spoilers for those that haven't read the first two books yet. Here is the scoop on Divergent, for those that haven't heard about it before (Seriously are you living on the moon? This book is everywhere! If you live on the moon, can I come and visit?):

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

I am really looking forward to read Divergent this summer. It is already waiting on my shelf. So expect a review, soon :)

The second one is Once We Were. It is the sequel to What's Left Of Me and the second book in The Hybrid Chronicles. It will hit shelves on
Summary for What's Left Of Me:

I should not exist. But I do.
Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else—two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance. But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren't they settling? Why isn't one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn't. . . .
For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she's still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable—hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet . . . for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.

I adored the cover for the first one but I think the second one is even better. And the story sounds really interesting, it is definitely on my TBR pile.
Both books will be published by HarperCollins
I really like how both books fit in with the covers of the other in their series. I just think that you need to see which books belong together.
What do you think of these two covers?
