Paperback Cover Reveal: BORN WICKED

Jessica Spotswood's Born Wicked has a new cover for paperback! Jessica is also holding a contest over on her blog! Go check it out!

(I have a obsession with ravens and crows. Yes, I know it's weird. But it makes me like this cover!)

 Jessica said that Penguin decided to change the look of her Cahill Witch Chronicles. As you can see, its got a very different  feel than the original cover.

So what do you think of the new cover? Personally, I like the old one better. However, the new one feels much more YA and is more obviously paranormal. I actually used to think the book was a historical romance before I picked it up and read the back.

You can find it on Goodreads here.

Has anyone read Born Wicked? Have any thoughts to share on the new look?


  1. Isn't it crazy how much a cover really can influence the feel of the book? I like them both. I think the second one feels much darker and as you mentioned the first certainly had a historical feel.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Haven't read it yet, but I agree with you completely about the covers!

  3. Nope, haven't read it yet, but I think the first is better. I've seen too many covers lately with women lying across something, or down, or stretching.

  4. This is off topic but I'm just dropping by to say I'm so glad you added me on NaNo and thank you for your very thoughtful advice =)
