New Cover Reveal: THE SIREN

We all remember Kiera Cass, the fantastic author of The Selection series, right? Well, her very first book, The Siren, originally self-published, is now being re-published by HarperTeen! With that said, it means that the entire book has gotten a new and fresh look, perks of a publishing company! :)

Here's the new cover!
That is a very pretty dress, if I do say so myself. I feel like Kiera Cass' books all must contain gorgeous dresses as part of her signature!

1. THAT OCEAN. I would love to spend every day living beside an ocean as big and as blue as that.
2. Like I mentioned before, the dress! I love the sandy colour, how it represents both land and water (sand banks are both part of land and water). And the trail of balls down the spine of's so pretty! I wish I could waltz down a beach wearing a dress like that.
3. The fact that the girl is holding her dress she merely holding it against the wind, or is she preparing herself to go into the ocean? 
4. Let's add her head. She's facing away from us, but from the position, it seems like she's gazing out into the ocean. Again, is she just admiring the view, or is she preparing to jump in? And with the wind... Basically, I really love her pose, and this cover is absolutely stunning :)

Now, I'm going to be a little honest here, but as gorgeous as this cover is, my first thought when I saw this cover was this book:
(This is The White Rose by Amy Ewing by the way.)

Does anyone other than me see the similarity? Just a bit? Girl in a beige dress, with a green-blue regal title on the bottom dress? Don't get me wrong, these covers are very different, but they're also quite similar. 

However, I'm going to admit I love The Siren cover a lot more than The White Rose. Just...ocean! Scenery! Wind! Loose dress! It simply doesn't compare!

This book will bit hitting bookstores January 26th, 2016. If you can't wait that long, I'm pretty sure you can already get the ebook version of it now, as it's been out for a while (like before The Selection ever became popular).

What do you guys think of this book being re-released? And what do you think of the cover? 

Goodreads blurb:

From Kiera Cass, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Selection series, comes a sweeping stand-alone fantasy romance.

A girl with a secret.
The boy of her dreams.
An Ocean between them.

Years ago, Kahlen was rescued from drowning by the Ocean. To repay her debt, she has served as a Siren ever since, using her voice to lure countless strangers to their deaths. Though a single word from Kahlen can kill, she can’t resist spending her days on land, watching ordinary people and longing for the day when she will be able to speak and laugh and live freely among them again. 

Kahlen is resigned to finishing her sentence in solitude...until she meets Akinli. Handsome, caring, and kind, Akinli is everything Kahlen ever dreamed of.

Falling in love with a human breaks the Ocean’s rules. But for the first time in a lifetime of following the rules, Kahlen is determined to follow her heart.


  1. I haven't read a single of the Kiera Cass books. But I bought them. I hope these books are good too!

    1. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I have! :)

  2. Hooray for this! Hopefully, this will be her new series. Another books to collect! I'm really excited for this :D ❤

    1. Me too! I can't wait to see the book, physically in my hands! :D

  3. There is no doubt in my mind that The Siren is going to be a highly popular book based on the popularity of The Selection series and how there are just so many fandoms. And plus... I haven't read it yet lmfao. Don't kill me yet or I won't be able to read it :D

    1. Haha, no worries, there is no bad blood between us ;) But I'm betting it will be hugely popular, too! Plus that gorgeous cover!

  4. They are similar book covers....hmmm..Both are gorgeous but I think Kiera may take the cake on this one. The ocean just pulls it all together in my opinion. Love when you do cover reveals :)

    1. Agreed! The cover had me at the ocean. It is gorgeous, plus that dress!!!

  5. I've read all of the Selection books, I didn't even know she had other books! Beautiful cover too! And you're right those are very similar covers!

    1. Yes, I was excited to hear that she's coming out with another book! The cover is absolutely stunning, no?
