Today, we are delighted to welcome Smuggler-favourite Sarah Rees Brennan back to the blog and to be hosting the cover reveal for Untold, the second book in her new Gothic series The Lynburn Legacy.
Behold! The Smugglerific Cover (and summary)!
THE SMUGGLERIFIC COVER: UNTOLD
ABOUT THE BOOK:
‘Free from bonds, but not each other
It’s time to choose sides… On the surface, Sorry-in-the-Vale is a sleepy English town. But Kami Glass knows the truth. Sorry-in-the-Vale is full of magic. In the old days, the Lynburn family ruled with fear, terrifying the people into submission in order to kill for blood and power. Now the Lynburns are back, and Rob Lynburn is gathering sorcerers so that the town can return to the old ways.
But Rob and his followers aren’t the only sorcerers in town. A decision must be made: pay the blood sacrifice, or fight. For Kami, this means more than just choosing between good and evil. With her link to Jared Lynburn severed, she’s now free to love anyone she chooses. But who should that be?’
Untold comes out September 24th. Start the countdown!
But WAIT! That is not all! Unspoken, the first book in the series (which Ana LOVED), is getting a new cover – below – for its paperback edition!
THE SMUGGLERIFIC COVER: UNSPOKEN
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Kami Glass is in love with someone she’s never met – a boy the rest of the world is convinced is imaginary. This has made her an outsider in the sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale, but she doesn’t complain. She runs the school newspaper and keeps to herself for the most part – until disturbing events begin to happen. There has been screaming in the woods and the dark, abandoned manor on the hill overlooking the town has lit up for the first time in 10 years. The Lynburn family, who ruled the town a generation ago and who all left without warning, have returned. As Kami starts to investigate for the paper, she finds out that the town she has loved all her life is hiding a multitude of secrets- and a murderer- and the key to it all just might be the boy in her head. The boy who everyone thought was imaginary may be real…and he may be dangerous.
We have one copy of Unspoken, the first book in the Lynburn Legacy series to give away, courtesy of the author.
The giveaway is open to ALL, anywhere, and will run until Saturday May 4 12:01 AM PST. To enter, please use the form below. Good luck!
CiaraApril 22, 2013 at 7:28 am
Can’t wait for Untold 🙂 Unspoken was really good – I loved Kami.
Kara @ Great ImaginationsApril 22, 2013 at 7:33 am
Awwww man! I’m kinda miffed we are going through another mid-series cover change!! I know they normally do new covers for the paperback version, but is that new cover for the hardback too? If it is, why? The original cover was so unique and eye-catching! GAH! And it’s not like I dislike the new covers; I think they are decent, but I wish they hadn’t just ditched the original entirely!
That said, I am a huge fan of this series too and I can’t WAIT!
Patricia EimerApril 22, 2013 at 7:53 am
Both covers are gorgeous. Can’t wait to read these books.
JoannaApril 22, 2013 at 7:56 am
Oooh I’m really fond of the hardcover design of Unspoken but it’s interesting that the new covers are aiming for a different air.
I don’t actually read gothic novels that often now because my experience with the genre has been a bit of a hit-and-miss lately, but I’m partial to Edgar Allan Poe (especially The Pit and the Pendulum), and Neil Gaiman has written a wonderful narrative poem based on the Robber Bridegroom/Mr Fox story called The White Road.
StephanieApril 22, 2013 at 8:07 am
Gorgeous, can’t wait for Untold! I think my favorite YA Gothic story would have to be….Unspoken. 😉
AHApril 22, 2013 at 8:11 am
Those are beautiful covers. I haven’t really had the opportunity to read too many YA Gothic novels. Perhaps one with that kind of feel would be Towering and I enjoyed that book. I’m looking forward to reading this series.
Suz GloApril 22, 2013 at 8:13 am
I would love to read this book and share it with my teen daughters! One of my favorite gothic novels is Diane Setterfield’s The Thirteenth Tale.
SelinaApril 22, 2013 at 8:27 am
I love the covers!!! So great!
KierraApril 22, 2013 at 8:32 am
Oh…I can’t even recall any other gothic novels other than Unspoken. But, I really, really enjoyed Unspoken and cannot wait until Untold releases!!
JosephineApril 22, 2013 at 8:34 am
these covers are gorgeous even if i loved the original hardcover…my favorite gothic novel is probably the Ivy Tree by Mary Stewart
bookharlotApril 22, 2013 at 8:35 am
My favorite gothic novel is Rebecca…can’t beat a classic
MatthewApril 22, 2013 at 8:37 am
This series looks really interesting!
AdrianneApril 22, 2013 at 8:38 am
Those covers look pretty and it’s going to be out on my birthday <3
Len D.April 22, 2013 at 8:40 am
Wow. They are lovely covers. Though I still prefer the first cover for Unspoken. Nonetheless, it’s the story that counts and it’s AWESOME! 🙂
Another favorite gothic story that I love is The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. 🙂
DonnaApril 22, 2013 at 8:47 am
Ooooh, the covers are lovely *_*
My favourite Gothic novels have to be Jane Eyre and the books in the Infernal Devices series (especially Clockwork Princess!).
JillApril 22, 2013 at 8:55 am
My favorite gothic novel is probably Daphne DuMaurier’s Rebecca. I haven’t read much YA gothic, so I’ve been eager to give this series a try.
Kate K.F.April 22, 2013 at 9:07 am
I think my favorite gothic novel is Wuthering Heights, it worked for me when I was younger. I really should reread it.
MehrayApril 22, 2013 at 9:20 am
gotta start off by saying that I am absolutely IN LOVE with the new covers <3 they look amazing and just wow. I'm speechless.
Okay so I don't read a lot of gothic novels and I'm not even sure if this book is a gothic novel but I'll say Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. And if that really doesn't fall under that category then it's definitely Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (: hehe
LeaApril 22, 2013 at 9:22 am
I also love Rebecca!
And can’t wait to read Unspoken and Untold! The cover change is interesting, and I’m looking forward to finding out how it relates to the story.
Thank you for the giveaway!
Stephanie AlexanderApril 22, 2013 at 9:32 am
Not sure which books I’ve read count as gothic. Would Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series count?
Linda WApril 22, 2013 at 9:37 am
Love both covers! My favorite Gothics are Jane Eyre, Northanger Abbey (Jane’s spoof on Gothics), and Rebecca.
ZeldaApril 22, 2013 at 9:38 am
I loved the original cover to Unspoken but these are great too! I am so, so excited for Untold 🙂
I as well would have to say my favorite Gothic novel is Rebeca!
ZeldaApril 22, 2013 at 9:39 am
I loved the original cover to Unspoken but these are great too! I am so, so excited for Untold 🙂
I as well would have to say my favorite Gothic novel is Rebecca!
Jasmine StairsApril 22, 2013 at 9:46 am
Honestly, my favourite is Unspoken. I really love that book.
Rachel MontgomeryApril 22, 2013 at 9:54 am
I adore Unspoken and can’t wait for the rest of the series. Northanger Abbey is probably #2, though, in terms of favorite Gothics 🙂
UrsulaApril 22, 2013 at 10:00 am
I am a big fan of the first cover Unspoken has and I was a bit disappointed to hear Untold wouldn’t have similar one, but now that I these two, I have to say that I looooove them!
I can’t wait to have this book in my hands! 🙂
Nikki EgertonApril 22, 2013 at 10:06 am
I love the new covers 🙂 Gothic novel-wise I do love the classics, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights xx
AliceApril 22, 2013 at 10:27 am
I love that font design! The cover is such a cool, modern take on the Gothic style.
AdrianaApril 22, 2013 at 10:29 am
I’m gonna say Northanger Abbey, if that counts 😉
Megan BApril 22, 2013 at 10:32 am
Oooooo I am so torn on these covers. The original one was SOOOO pretty and I would have loved if they stuck with that sort of design, but these new ones are really pretty too!
I haven’t really read that many Gothic novels, but I did really like Jane Eyre.
Kyle Patrick MagistradoApril 22, 2013 at 10:34 am
I’m not sure if they are but..
THe Unbecoming of Mara Dyer?
Sisters Red & Sweetly?
HannahApril 22, 2013 at 10:44 am
I like the dramatic flourishes of text on both covers, and the lovely curly bits on the “Lynburn Legacy” titles. I adore Kami and her friends – really looking forward to what happens in Untold!
Does We Have Always Lived In The Castle count as a Gothic novel? I think that’s my favourite, if so! Always like a bit of Daphne du Maurier, too.
KristinaApril 22, 2013 at 10:58 am
So excited to see where the series goes!!
Kelly L.April 22, 2013 at 11:06 am
Definitely Wuthering Heights. 😀
AudreyApril 22, 2013 at 11:06 am
I adored Unspoken, totally can’t wait for Untold! I don’t really read many Gothic novels, and this one BARELY counts, but can I choose Jane by April Linder? :p
SuperbwgApril 22, 2013 at 11:06 am
For Gothic novels I like The Twin’s Daughter a lot, a very different feel to it then most books. I also love Jane Austens take on Gothic novels in her book Northanger Abbey
Jana @ The Book GoddessApril 22, 2013 at 11:09 am
I love the covers so much! I love the new cover instead of the old – glad they changed it! 🙂
DaisyApril 22, 2013 at 11:10 am
I think my favourite gothic novel would have to be Rebecca, I so love that book!
I do like the cover for Untold a lot, I just loved Unspoken’s first cover better than this new one. But maybe I just have to get used to it a bit 🙂
SandyApril 22, 2013 at 11:10 am
I haven’t read too much Gothic YA but one that I really enjoy is Cynthia Leitich-Smith’s TANTALIZE.
Thank you for the wonderful giveaway 🙂
GillianApril 22, 2013 at 11:11 am
UNSPOKEN, obviously, is my favorite Gothic novel! By far! I really, really loved the previous cover, but I must say I also love the new. Anything that will help the series, I’m for!
KaetheApril 22, 2013 at 11:11 am
Lot’s of favorites listed in the comments, but Northanger Abbey is my gothic beloved.
brenda cApril 22, 2013 at 11:17 am
Jane eyre 🙂
Jessica LeeApril 22, 2013 at 11:21 am
I have to say that my all time favorite gothic novel is always going to be–hands down– Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. I prefer the 1818 text to the 1823, but I still love them both!
ChachicApril 22, 2013 at 11:24 am
Aww it makes me kind of sad that the Untold cover doesn’t match the original Unspoken artwork, that one was so pretty. But it’s good that the new Unspoken cover matches this one. Hmm my favorite gothic novel – I think that would probably be Nine Coaches Waiting by Mary Stewart. 🙂
ChristaApril 22, 2013 at 11:30 am
I love Gothic and Southern Gothic novels but if I have to choose one favourite I think I would have to go with Rebecca. It’s a classic for a reason!
LexiApril 22, 2013 at 11:33 am
For Gothic novels, I like Weathering Heights and Jane Eyre. Otherwise, I may have to go look into the first one in this series.
Andrea @Cozy Up With A Good ReadApril 22, 2013 at 11:42 am
I was honestly scared of what they would do with these covers, but I really love them, I definitely want these covers on my shelf. I My favourite Gothic tale would probably have to be Wuthering Heights.
sandyg265April 22, 2013 at 11:50 am
Not sure if it counts as Gothic but I’ll say Dracula.
NadiaApril 22, 2013 at 11:51 am
I like the Untold cover more than I expected to! I’m just in love with the first Unspoken cover, it was so pretty. But I’m SOOOOOOOOOOO excited to read book 2, the first was pretty amazing.
sophiereadsApril 22, 2013 at 11:59 am
My favortie gothic would have to be Jane Eyre. I loved Unspoken and can not wait for Untold!
PaigeApril 22, 2013 at 12:10 pm
Okay, I may be the lone voice here, but my reaction to the new Unspoken cover is just UGH. What jumps out at me is Kami’s cleavage.
Fave gothic novel? I suppose Jane Eyre, though I also really like The Castle of Otranto.
AnjeliApril 22, 2013 at 12:19 pm
This series looks interesting! Gonna add this to my reading list =)
gitaApril 22, 2013 at 12:24 pm
not a fan of the cover, i have to say. but the book rocks. as a non-caucasian person i admire the diversity that is present in the story.
LyndizzleApril 22, 2013 at 12:40 pm
Yay! Seems like all the books I want come out in September, such a long wait 🙁
ElizaApril 22, 2013 at 12:45 pm
Looking at these generic covers, all I can do is ask “WHY?” The original cover was so very lovely and stood out, now these books look like almost every other YA book out there. Sigh.
My favorite Gothic book is The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. It’s a wonderful, modern gothic story for the booklover. Yay, Suz Glo, isn’t it a great book? So glad that someone else loves it as much as I do.
SheilaApril 22, 2013 at 12:46 pm
I really had fun with book one and look forward to book two. That said, I also loved the two-color, cut-paper look of the original cover. I’m sad they moved away from that. Maybe it was to juvenile?
SheilaApril 22, 2013 at 12:46 pm
asiddiquiApril 22, 2013 at 1:17 pm
RobinApril 22, 2013 at 1:26 pm
I can’t wait for UNTOLD! I’ve already started spreading the love at the school library.
alyssa aliApril 22, 2013 at 1:26 pm
I prefer the old Unspoken cover, it stood out..the new ones are just blah.
My favourite gothic is Wuthering Heights.
AnnaApril 22, 2013 at 1:29 pm
I’m a huge fan of The Ghosts of Ashbury High–maybe not quite traditional gothic, but amazing all the same. I’m really excited for book 2!
ThaynaApril 22, 2013 at 1:35 pm
I can’t believe they changed the cover /////oo\\\\
erin b.April 22, 2013 at 1:40 pm
Totally meh on the new covers; loved the old one. Also I hate the trend of doing cover redesigns before the series is complete.
LeahApril 22, 2013 at 1:41 pm
Cant wait til it finally comes out!!
KiriApril 22, 2013 at 1:58 pm
Untold cover isn’t what I was expecting at all, but I like it! As for Unspoken…I didn’t like the old paperback cover much (I don’t know if it’s just the UK version, but the one with the two people portraying Kami and Jared on the front? But anyways)and I think this one is better, but at the same time I do see what other people mean about Kami’s cleavage-also the first thing I noticed!
As for favourite Gothic novel…hmm. I’ll probably have to go with Jane Eyre 🙂
Lea KrnjetaApril 22, 2013 at 2:05 pm
That would be Dracula.Cheesy, I know, but that book is excellent.
StephApril 22, 2013 at 2:27 pm
I liked the other cover better!
Gerd D.April 22, 2013 at 2:30 pm
Like the new cover design, I think they did good work translating the original cover – eventhough it is not quite as striking.
It does remind me some of the early UK-covers for Patricia’s Mercy Thompson books.
Favourite Gothic novel: Frankenstein.
Shelley was the first author to prove to me that there’s more to the classics than just Poe.
EmmaApril 22, 2013 at 3:13 pm
I don’t know, I may have liked the old cover better.
Favorite gothic novel: I love Mary Stewart’s gothic novels. My fav is probably Nine Coaches Waiting.
SophieApril 22, 2013 at 3:20 pm
Love SRB’s storytelling style! Thank you so much for the giveaway! I adored her Demons Lexicon series and am looking forward to Unspoken!
DanaApril 22, 2013 at 3:32 pm
umm, I don’t read many Gothic novels so I’ll have to go with the classic Jane Eyre. Thank you for the giveaway!
PaigeApril 22, 2013 at 3:42 pm
Not sure whether The Folk Keeper really counts as Gothic, but it’s my favourite dark and twisty tale.
jenn aka the picky girlApril 22, 2013 at 3:47 pm
Super disappointed in these covers. They look so much like every other YA cover I see these days. Loved the one Unspoken had before.
Anyway, I’m glad the next one is coming up. Unspoken was such a cliffhanger.
jenn aka the picky girlApril 22, 2013 at 3:48 pm
Oh, and Jane Eyre and more recently, Affinity by Sarah Waters.
AnonymousApril 22, 2013 at 3:55 pm
old faves, still love dracula
Mary AnneApril 22, 2013 at 4:10 pm
When I was younger I used to love to read Jane Aiken Hodge – her books were set Regency period but had a very Gothic feel.
JenApril 22, 2013 at 4:39 pm
Favourite gothic novel is definitely Wuthering Heights. It’s got unreliable narrators, scheming teenagers, and an unconventional love story.
What’s not to like?
AntoniaApril 22, 2013 at 5:07 pm
My favorite gothic book is Nevermore by Kelly Creagh . Thanks for the giveaway.:)
MalinApril 22, 2013 at 5:10 pm
Jane Eyre, hands down. There are a lot of good Gothic novels out there, but this is still the best.
MiaApril 22, 2013 at 5:22 pm
Unspoken has been on my list for a while now and I could really use some of that great Gothic atmosphere. I think it might finally be time.
Oh and for fave Gothic novel I love Jane Eyre, but my 2nd favorite has to be The Castle of Otranto, the originator of the Gothic novel. I read that novel three times in college.
SamApril 22, 2013 at 5:28 pm
Why change the cover? The original US one was *so* distinctive and stylish! I really hope the new ones don’t put off readers from the always smart and funny Sarah Rees Brennan.
Favourite gothic novel: The Moth Diaries by Rachel Klein.
JustineApril 22, 2013 at 5:50 pm
Although it satirizes Gothic novels, Northanger Abbey counts, right?
ElenaApril 22, 2013 at 5:53 pm
I’m in love with everything Sarah writes and I’m ao excited for Untold. I love the new covers.
My favorite gothic novels are definitely Unspoken and Jane Eyre 🙂 x
Samantha DaviesApril 22, 2013 at 5:53 pm
Well the new covers are still pretty but I really loved the original Unspoken cover. It was beautiful artwork and just seemed to fit the story so well! My favorite gothic novel would probably be Dracula!
Breanne M.April 22, 2013 at 5:59 pm
I don’t really have a favourite Gothic novel, as it’s not a genre I read a lot of, but I plan to change that.
And I have to say, I also miss the old cover. I’m really getting tired of the unique covers changing to become more generic AND of covers changing midway through a series. These covers are nice enough but they look like a lot of what’s out there already and are SO different from the original.
AllisonApril 22, 2013 at 7:35 pm
mmm, Dracula and Jane Eyre<3
Jen KinardApril 22, 2013 at 8:26 pm
Wuthering Heights. It was one of the only books I was forced to read in school that I actually enjoyed and recommended to other people. 🙂
erinf1April 22, 2013 at 8:34 pm
sounds fantastic! Thanks for sharing! I loved Jane Eyre growing up 🙂
EllieApril 22, 2013 at 8:47 pm
Mmmm, it’s a beautiful cover, but I must say I liked the old one better. It was just more.. unique! Now it looks like any other YA book 😕
Oh, and my favorite gothic novel is Frankenstein, by Mary W. Shelley. Simply AMAZING!!!
Victoria ZumbrumApril 22, 2013 at 9:03 pm
I haven’t really read any gothic novels but I would love to read this series. It sounds really good. Thanks for the giveaway.
DebraGApril 22, 2013 at 9:06 pm
Christine Feehan wrote some great ones
Kimberly B.April 22, 2013 at 9:07 pm
I used to love Gothic novels, and am so glad they are coming back in vogue! I guess my favorite was probably The Wizard’s Daughter by Barbara Michaels but I also really loved The Curse of the Concullens by Florence Stevenson, which is a fun send-up of the genre. Thanks for the great giveaway!
saracApril 22, 2013 at 9:30 pm
love love love Jane Eyre. Def my fave gothic novel.
AliApril 22, 2013 at 10:00 pm
I do love Jane Eyre 🙂
AnonymousApril 22, 2013 at 10:43 pm
wahhhhh! so excited!!
Kate & ZenaApril 22, 2013 at 11:26 pm
I love Jane Eyre.
While I love Unspoken, am I the only one who loved the old cover? It was so cute!
Mariah H.April 23, 2013 at 12:05 am
Love, love, LOVE this book and Sarah. Met her on the CP2 tour and she is amazing and hilarious just like her books. Can’t wait for Untold 🙂
LlehnApril 23, 2013 at 1:02 am
AlmeraApril 23, 2013 at 1:46 am
I LOVE BOTH THE COVERS. GIMMEEEEEE!
EmilyApril 23, 2013 at 2:55 am
Huh, definitely a change of pace with the covers here. As an illustration nerd I loved the papercut cover dearly (and would have super-loved the whole series done in papercut covers because (a) beautiful, (b) unique), but covers! They change, it happens. These aren’t bad!
I don’t personally categorize “Gothic” when I think of novels I’ve read, but Unspoken is definitely one of my v. favs. 🙂
ErinApril 23, 2013 at 5:28 am
Wow….um…let’s just say I’m not really a big fan of the new covers. I thought the cover for the Unspoken hardcover was something unique and special and gorgeous and doesn’t scream YA PARANORMAL! in your face.
Carina OlsenApril 23, 2013 at 9:15 am
The covers look pretty awesome 😀 Loved the first one more, though.. <3 but love them 🙂 Thank you for sharing. <3 And ohh. Love the giveaway 😀 Thank you 🙂 Think my favorite YA Gothic cover must be The Nightmare Affair. <3
Debora BApril 23, 2013 at 10:16 am
Hmmm… I think I’d have to go with The Phantom of the Opera! That counts as gothic, right? 🙂
VanessaApril 23, 2013 at 10:39 am
I have to say The Shadow of the Wind. Gothic all over the place and love love love love.
KelliApril 23, 2013 at 10:51 am
Can’t wait for Untold! Unspoken was such a joy to read.
StacyReneeApril 23, 2013 at 12:07 pm
I’ve really been wanting to read some Sarah Rees Brennan!
ChelseaApril 23, 2013 at 12:10 pm
Jane Eyre is my all-time favorite, though I’m a fan of Phantom of the Opera and Poe’s works as well. And I LOVED the gothic elements in Unspoken! Can’t wait for book 2, though I wish the new covers showcased more of the humor in the books. Kami is such a fun voice to read.
AnonymousApril 23, 2013 at 1:50 pm
I couldn’t get the giveaway link to work! I would love to win Unspoken
My favorite Gothic novel is “The Thirteenth Tale” – it’s especially great for book lovers!
Judy S.April 23, 2013 at 1:51 pm
Sorry – didn’t mean to make my above comment about “The Thirteenth Tale” anonymous!
Ms. TApril 23, 2013 at 4:23 pm
I loved the paper-cut cover and am therefore sad that we won’t be getting more of the same. However, I am thrilled for Untold as SRB is perfect in all of the ways.
scribe kiraApril 23, 2013 at 4:25 pm
a little sad about the covers too…LOVED the original ones–sooo beautiful!!!! anyways, favorite gothic novel? not sure if either of these qualify, but the graveyard book and chime come to mind which i LOVE and they have gothic undertones (i think?)
thanks for the great giveaway!=)
BibliotropicApril 23, 2013 at 4:31 pm
To be honest, I’m never quite sure what constitutes a gothic novel. Some I’ve read are said to be, but I never got the feel from them that I figure should come along with gothic stuff. So I’m just not sure anymore. Does “Grave Mercy” count, since it has a great deal with do with death?
SerenaApril 23, 2013 at 5:48 pm
I really loved The Shadow of the Wind.
KaylaApril 23, 2013 at 6:50 pm
The Gemma Doyle Trilogy! (That counts, right?http://www.thebooksmugglers.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif)
Darith L.April 23, 2013 at 9:20 pm
Beautiful Creatures 🙂
Shelver506 @ Bookshelvers AnonymousApril 23, 2013 at 9:56 pm
I don’t read a lot of gothic novels, but I do enjoy a good Wilkie Collins novel now and then.
SarahApril 24, 2013 at 9:14 am
I’m not sure exactly what constitutes a gothic novel either. I googled it and saw some lists, and one list had Beloved by Toni Morrison, and I know that’s not gothic, so maybe lots of people have no idea? 😀 In any case, I’ll go with my gut here. Maureen Johnson’s The Name of the Star seems possibly gothic-y, and Cassie Clare’s Infernal Devices books seem to fit the bill, in which case I’d say my fav gothic novel is Clockwork Princess.
EllieApril 24, 2013 at 9:40 am
hmmm… The covers are really cool, but I still like the old one. These are good too, more gothic sci-fy-ish to me.
Fave gothic novel… thats a toughy would something strange and deadly count? Hope so! 😛
LanApril 24, 2013 at 11:43 am
Definitely Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray.
LeeApril 24, 2013 at 12:13 pm
That’s a tough one…I love Edgar Allan Poe, but he did short stories and poems…I’d have to say The House of the Seven Gables.
CeeApril 24, 2013 at 3:43 pm
I think my favorite gothic novel is The Picture of Dorian Gray or Northanger Abbey. The old classics. ;D
DelanaApril 24, 2013 at 3:45 pm
Haven’t read many Gothic books, but I loved Unspoken!
EleanorApril 24, 2013 at 4:33 pm
I agree with others – although the covers are nice, the first one was amazing!
I am very excited for September though 🙂
I think my favourite Gothic novel would have to be Fingersmith by Sarah Waters.
LoredanaApril 24, 2013 at 6:16 pm
I’ll go with Coraline by Neil Gaiman ^_^
And I absolutely love the new covers ?
Alex H.April 24, 2013 at 9:45 pm
I thought the previous cover was really original and that’s what drew me towards it. BUT, I like the new covers as well, and the fact that Kami is not a twig 🙂
MariskaApril 24, 2013 at 10:16 pm
i believe i haven’t read any gothic novels so far, can’t recall any. but i’m sure i want to read these books 😉
SerenaApril 24, 2013 at 11:48 pm
the new covers are so pretae!
Megan CApril 25, 2013 at 4:04 am
My favourite gothic novel will always be the first one I read: The Secret Garden.
AnonymousApril 25, 2013 at 10:04 am
I haven’t read too many Gothic stories, so I’ll have to go with Jane Eyre.
AndiApril 25, 2013 at 3:41 pm
I really loved The Woman in White, which was gothic-y
IzaApril 25, 2013 at 5:18 pm
Love the new cover! I don’t always like when covers are re-done partway through the series, but this looks great 🙂

A gothic-y book I really loved was The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. I heard it was just sold for a movie, so we’ll have to see what they do with it.

To be honest, I’d have to say that I prefer the first cover more than the new one. The first cover is what actually made me read the book (yeah yeah… I know… I judge the book by its cover… the story was well written though! I loved it!). I was looking forward that the next book would be green and as nice as the first cover! I’m still getting the second book though! I must know what is next!

I’m disappointed in the cover swap since I loved the first one to pieces, but a little unsurprised- it kind of looked middle grade to me (especially since Cavendish came out around the same time). Hopefully this one works out wonderfully for it 😀
As for favorite gothic novels, I’m jumping in on the Jane Eyre love <3

I’d say Jenny Pox by J.L Bryan, at least I think its Gothic 😀

I love me some gothic and while I adore Jane Eyre, I think my favourite has to be Wuthering Heights, even if it’s dreasfully flawed!

I’d have to go classic with JANE EYRE or WUTHERING HEIGHTS.

I really couldn’t decide between Frankenstein and The Picture of Dorian Gray. 🙂

Ha. This time I will actually leave my name…

Honestly I couldn’t tell you my fav cause I’ve never really read any Gothic books until Sarah came out with Unspoken, so that has to be my favorite one until Untold comes out. Which I CANNOT WAIT FOR 😀

I enjoyed the Thirteenth Tale, though I have not read many YA gothic novels

My favorite Gothic novel? Mary Stewart’s Nine Coaches Waiting. Hands down.

I love Southern Gothic novels. There are not too many Southern Gothic YA novels, though!

I love Frankenstein, it’s definitely my favourite Gothic novel…also the Gormenghast series.

I really liked Nevermore by Kelly Creagh. The Restorer by Amanda Stevens was also good.
