Well, Hello, You ENDLESSLY Gorgeous Cover, You!

I'm going to write stuff here that you are going to completely ignore as you frantically scroll down to see what the cover looks like.

I would do the same thing. So...

Fine, fine. Here it is:


You guys, I love it. I love it I love it I love it. I love that Evie looks like she is about to smile, and that the clouds above her are lighter than the ones around her (you should see the back image!). I love her dress (OH MY GOSH HER DRESSES THEY CONTINUE TO KILL ME), and her awesome-and-oh-so-Evie shade of lipstick. I love her hair (AGAIN OH MY GOSH HER HAIR), and the flowers in the foreground, and the color of the lettering. I love the purple!! THE PURPLE. I'll get to add purple pens to my pink and red stash! Oh, HarperTeen, you make my color-coordinating heart so happy.

I will admit I have had this cover lined up with the covers for PARANORMALCY and SUPERNATURALLY on my computer screen, and I've just been...staring. Three covers. My trilogy. Evie's story, complete, all dressed up and ready to go. It makes me happy and it makes me sad but mostly it just makes me wonder how the crap I got this lucky. Both for being three-for-three on jaw-droppingly gorgeous covers (HARPERTEEN MARRY ME I LOOOOOOOOOVE YOU), and for the fact that my name is on these books, that it's really happened, that this incredible, unexpected, phenomenal journey continues to exceed my expectations.

I love Evie. I love this book. It's maybe my favorite of the three (SHH DON'T TELL THE OTHER TWO OR THEY WILL FEEL BAD), and I am so excited for you to find out how everything comes together for the end(lessly) on July 24th. Which feels very far, but it will pass quickly and at least we have the cover while we wait!

Oh, go ahead and scroll back up to stare. You know you want to.

Holy Cover Batman! It's gorgeous!

Karen Adair said...

SCORE!!!!!! I totally scrolled up like seven times WHILE I was reading the post. Everytime you mentioned something you liked I went up to look at it specifically. Congratulations!! Although I feel like the real winner here. Great cover. Great series!

justjess said...

Definitely my favorite cover so far. Soooooo pretty!

Lexie said...

Okay, so it's not a pumpkin patch, but the roses are probably more fitting. The cover is gorgeous; the model looks just like Evie, and the coloring and lighting and text and everything is just perfect. I may or may not have been staring at it for the past two minutes.

iluvkimi220 said...

WOW!! That is a beautiful cover!!

Kathryn (clean teen fiction) said...

Gorgeous. Wow! I love the purple, the hair, and the DRESS!!!

Cherie Reich said...

Oh, wow! So, so beautiful! I absolutely love it! Of course, it is in purple and it's my favorite cover, but it's just so pretty. You should make posters and frame them. :)

Zoraida Cordova said...

Amber Argyle, author said...

Cynthia said...

Love the people and the dress!! Gorgeous!!

heidikins said...

Rawr!

Also, I love that her hair is getting longer!

xox

Liberty Speidel said...

Amazing!

Just a behind the scenes question... do you know if they used the same model for all three? I see some differences in the face (at least between 1 & 2, and 2 & 3, not so much with 1 & 3) so that's why I'm curious.

Congratulations!!!

LiLi said...

Your series has absolutely GORGEOUS covers!!

Kiersten White said...

It's not only the same model, all three shots are from the same photo shoot!

Rebecca T. said...

Ooh, the pretty!! Definitely my favourite of the three. Love the colour and the angle and her expression... awesome! =)

Cat @ Beyond Books said...

Gorgeous! And I completely approve of the purple as it matches my hair.

Congrats! (so excited for this book, I love the series!)

Jessica said...

It's gorgeous!!! I want to gush about it for you! I'll admit that the cover reveal of SUPERNATURALLY was the whole reason I picked up PARANORMALCY in the first place. And then, I fell in love with the series and Evie and your general adorable-ness. So excited for you and the conclusion to the series! :)

Dorothy Dreyer said...

So beautiful! It's perfect! Congrats!

Mundie Moms said...

That is a bleeping fantastic cover! I LOVE IT! I also love that they've used the same flowers in each cover. CONGRATULATIONS Kiersten!

Christine said...

I *want* that dress!! Do you know WHERE they came from and if we can buy one? I'd totally buy you one, too. Unless they're custom-made by Vera Wang and cost a bajillion. A million, fine, but a bajillion?!

Jami Gold said...

Love it, Kiersten! Gorgeous, as always. And I totally did scroll back up :)

Komal said...

Omg! So beautiful! *jumps up and down in excitement* I scrolled up 5 times to look at it, then sort of stared at it for 5 minutes, mouth hanging open just the slightest.

My favourite cover by far, and the dress is so gorgeous!

Anita Saxena said...

Beautiful cover. Can't wait to read the end of this trilogy.

Melissa Walker said...

So pretty, pretty, pretty!

aLmYbNeNr said...

I love it!!!

Anonymous said...

Wow. The covers of your book trilogy are, without question, three of the best book covers I've ever seen. To be honest, the entire reason I picked up Paranormalcy was because I liked the pretty hair and pretty dress, and I was hoping the book itself would be just as good--and it was! :)

Jordanne said...

REACTION:
1.Clicks on Kiersten White blog link on favorite bar and watches as "Well, Hello, You Endlessly Gorgeous Cover, You!" appears.

2. Reads this post title about 10 times before it sinks in.

3. Alternately feels: Thrilled, Scared, Excited, Sad, and supersupersupersuperSUPER THRILLED.

4. Scrolls down, almost bites through tongue when cover appears.

5. DOES bite cheek to keep from screaming and disturbing mother.

6. Screams nonsense words in head, along the lines of: KLFJLJEK:DNJO:SJ:OJREWJ!!!!ENDLESSLY!!!!! COVER!!!!HERE!!!!NOW!!!SO...PRETTY....KFL:J:LWJ:JFCUDSHFREIUHRLHDI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

7. Reads rest of post, scrolls up, and stares until deciding to write down her reaction in the comments.

In case this doesn't make any sense: I. HOLYFREAKINGMUFFINS. LOVE. IT.

But now I have to wait. Until JULY. This. IS. Going. To. Hurt.

Lena said...

OH.EM.GEE. It's stunning! *wants* *covets*

Can't wait to read it! :D

Dana Elmendorf said...

This girl just gets more gorgeous by the cover! Can't wait! If they ever make this a movie that girl or her little sister HAS to be Evie.

Laini Taylor said...

beautiful beautiful! Huge congrats on a COMPLETED TRILOGY!!! Yay, you! :-)

A Canadian Girl said...

I love the cover! Since my favourite colour is purple, this now happens to be my favourite cover from the Paranormalcy trilogy :)

Cassandra said...

AMAZING!

Alba said...

PERFECT!! all the covers were and will forever be amazing! Congrats and I know there's nothing more than greatness for you in the future!!! I simply cannot wait for this!!

Tara said...

Claire Dawn said...

*twiddles thumbs*

Are we there yet?

(congrats on the beaut of a cover.)

LinWash said...

Beautiful!

Mel Fowler said...

Ahhhhh, I scream and jump up and down. Kiersten you totally scored with your books, all of them are awesome covers. And, yes the purple is nice, but I'm a little biased because 'Pink is my favorite color' (did you just sing that song because i did!)

Anyway. Yay, I'm so excited :)

ps the word verification is...ungulato...sounds like a really weird glue or an itallian ice cream. Most definately foreign

Kristi said...

Congrats!!! The cover is GORGEOUS and by far my favorite of the three. What can I say? I'm a sucker for purple.

Enjoy every moment of this huge accomplishment! You've earned it and we can't wait to read it. :)

Kate said...

It's purple!!!!! I love it! Pink is terrific and all, but purple is just purely excellent!!!! I love it! I'm so happy for you Kiersten! :)

April said...

I'm a little late to the commenting party. I didn't get a chance to say anything last night.. I love it soo much..Everything about it is perfect. The purple is so gorgeous.. All of your covers have been so beautiful. I'm already plotting how I will recreate this one in the Sims. lol.

Living, Learning, Eating said...

Lovely! I'm so jealous. :P If you have time...could you do a post about the cover design process? it sounds so fascinatingly mysterious! How did you choose Evie? Or did Harperteen do it? Did you choose the dress? The colors? Or are you given a few cover options and told to choose one?

I'm so curious!

Ru said...

Very, very cool

Taffy said...

Awesomesauce! I'm soooo happy for you!
July, really? Sheesh!

Kris Summers said...

I LOOOOOVVVVEEEE this last cover. Seriously, I've been wondering just how Harper Teen would match the first and second covers, and they've blown me away. I LOVE the last cover. It's gorgeous and mysterious and mind-blowing. I'm going to stop before I repeat myself all over again, and I'll sit here and stare at the cover. Oh the pretty!

shannan/girlsinthestacks.com said...

I love this cover! That dress is to die for! Oh, and you make me giggle. A lot.
Love, Shannan

Kris Atkins said...

Absolutely gorgeous. That purple is so violety and beautiful and I want to eat it. That's an appropriate response, right?

Fiona L said...

Holy mother of BLEEP. I absolutely love LOVE LOVEEE your covers. I was wondering how the third could possibly beat the awesome prettiness of those before it.
But wow, this cover totally blew me away. Am extremely jealous.
By the way, any ideas if that's a proper model person they hire?
Seriously, you have some of the best covers I've ever drooled over.

Fiktshun said...

Ooooh, it's so pretty! :) My favorite cover yet. Awesome!

Kathryn Packer Roberts said...

Yes, I had to keep scrolling up to see what you were talking about. The clouds, the flowers, etc. Congrats! You deserve it, I can just tell that about you =). Use your stardom well =)

primrose said...

Oh my! It's so freaking beautiful! I can't wait to read it.

MARiSSA said...

I love it!

Is it a coincidence that in Paranormalcy, she's look to the right, in Supernaturally, she's looking to the Center, and in Endlessly she's looking to the left? It's like Evie's whole journey!

Anonymous said...

love the cover, the purple is great, haven't read supernaturally yet as it is not released in the U.K yet but can't wait for that or the 3rd book

Um... This is the most beautiful cover I've ever seen! holy cow! Its gorgeous! I love it!
