Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal for you today. And huzzah.... we covers for the US and UK releases!!! Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron is a alternate and original take on the Cinderella fairytale. These covers are absolutely gorgeous! While they are cohesive I love the UK cover more for the addition of the butterflies and tattered dress to the imagery, which lets you know not all is well. The blue colors are a call back to the traditionalCinderella ball gown. Cinderella is Dead is set to release on July 7, 2020 from Bloomsbury YA.
Synopsis of Cinderella is Dead from Goodreads:
It’s 200 years after Cinderella found her prince, but the fairy tale is over. Teen girls are now required to appear at the Annual Ball, where the men of the kingdom select wives based on a girl’s display of finery. If a suitable match is not found, the girls not chosen are never heard from again. Sixteen-year-old Sophia would much rather marry Erin, her childhood best friend, than parade in front of suitors. At the ball, Sophia makes the desperate decision to flee, and finds herself hiding in Cinderella’s mausoleum. There, she meets Constance, the last known descendant of Cinderella and her step sisters. Together they vow to bring down the king once and for all–and in the process, they learn that there’s more to Cinderella’s story than they ever knew . . .
This fresh take on the classic Cinderella story promises to be full of magic, adventure, and female empowerment. Everything you need for a great fun read! I am really looking forward to adding this gem to my collection. If i'm lucky i will be able to get my hands on the UK version as well. Are you looking forward to reading this book?
