Charming Covers [14]

Charming Covers is a feature where I show some covers for upcoming books that have recently been revealed/ I've recently found.

This is Not a Test
This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers

It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up.

As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, everyone’s motivations to survive begin to change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life–and death–inside.

When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

This one looks really interesting. This is the first non-contemporary novel by Courtney. It'll be interesting to see how she does with it. 
I like this cover. It's kind of creepy.  It took a minute to figure out what was going on with the girl. 


  1. I love the cover creepy and mysterious!

  2. Another great cover for Courtney Summers :) I need to read her first two books but if they are anything like Fall For Anything I'll be a life long fan ^-^

  3. First saw this cover yesterday and I really like the colors. I thought at first it was the back of the girl's head until I looked closer.

  4. Really liking that cover and the premise is very interesting. At first, I thought, ACK, not more zombies. But it sounds like from the synopsis that the zombies are only the catalyst that make the group inside the shelter act the way they do. I'm intrigued.

  5. Oh, I really like this cover because it looks mysterious.

  6. That cover and synopsis sounds creepy and interesting and AWESOME! I can't wait for it :D
