Cover of the Month #1

Cover of the Month is a new feature I've just created for the blog. Each month, I will pick a book cover that I LOVE, and will feature it. This month's cover is I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter. I have read this book and reviewed it. It was O-K, but the cover is gorgeous! And here it is.....

Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses - but it's really a school for spies. Cammie Morgan is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways (three of which involve a piece of uncooked spaghetti). But the one thing the Gallagher Academy hasn't prepared her for is what to do when she falls for an ordinary boy who thinks she's an ordinary girl.

Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, and track him through a mall without his ever being the wiser, but can Cammie have a normal relationship with a boy who can never know the truth about her?

I just love everything about it. The uniform - even though it is a uniform! - is really pretty, especially the skirt. I love checked patterns! The font really fits in too, like the way the heart is tilted in the word' love'. And the little sparkle on the - well, whatever that thing she's holding is (actually if anyone knows, could you please tell me? Thanks!) just tops it all off!

This book originally came out in the US, but with a different cover. Which one do you prefer? I prefer the UK one (above), but I'd like to know what you think! I've put a picture of the US cover below. Tell me what you think in the comment section please!


  1. The UK one is great!!! I've never seen it before!!!! So much better than the US one!!!

  2. I like both of them actually :o)

  3. I prefer the first one too! Btw, I think the thing she is holding is the uncooked spaggetti. Remember in the book she learnt to kill a man in 7 different ways? That was one of them. :c) Cool monthly post!

  4. Jen: I agree!

    Rachel: The US one is nice too, thanks.

    Zoe: Oh yeah! I see it now! Thanks

  5. I prefer the first one too. The thing (!) held behind the girl's back is intriguing!

  6. That's great that you liked it! I haven't read the series yet, but I sure love the titles!

  7. I definately like the UK one as well although they are both pretty :)

  8. Definately prefer the UK. I read and loved this book - it's so cute! And the cover is even better!

    I think that the sparkley-thing is the Gallagher Academy's crest... but I'm not 100% on that.

    I just want to say: thanks for following me! I love your blog, and I'm following you now too. (:

  9. Honestly one of the best book series i have ever read and this book was just...WOW! From start to finish i was on the edge of my seat and it amazed me how she connected every book to this one. And how she played with the mind! Amazing! Ally Carter is my favorite author and i can't wait to read more of her novels.


Comments make my day :)

This is an award-free zone, sorry but I just don't have the time to pass them on! Thanks for thinking of me anyway :)
