I love Across the Universe's cover. Its one of the best covers of 2011! But after reading the book and giving it a bit of thought, the paperback cover makes more sense story wise. The Hardcover one gives you a wrong idea about the story, it strongly hints at heavy romance where the book has very light romance. The paperback cover on the other hand looks like it represents the story better.
Don't get me wrong, by looks alone the Hardcover wins, but if you are looking for a cover which represents the story then go with the paperback copy.
Now, without further ado, here is the cover of Across The Universe's sequel A MILLION SUNS:
Expected publication: January 10th 2012
The plot of this book is currently a secret...
I think this cover is a mix of the paperback version and the hardcover version of Across the Universe. It has that sci fi aura and metal from the paperback cover while still keeping the stars and beautiful colors of the hardcover cover. It's not as great a cover as Across The Universe was, but it holds its own. As for the models posture, well I'm thinking the girl (Amy) is looking at the stars because she really wants something more than just to be in the spaceship, she is looking at the possibilities while the guy (Elder) is looking down at their hands intertwined together because for him Godspeed is home and Amy is his future, plus he may be ashamed for some things he may do or may have done (Hint Hint: read the book).
Oh, and I would really like it if they would take off that white mark off the cover on the crystal. It's annoying.
And hey if anything this cover of A Million Suns is probably just the Hardcover version and the Paperback version may have a different cover ^^
