We’re kicking off the Unbreakable Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Unbreakable, Unraveling #2 (published on April 23, 2013 by Balzer + Bray) by Elizabeth Norris continues the romantic sci-fi infused story of Janelle and Ben. There is a huge giveaway below for five winners including a grand prize that includes both UNRAVELING and UNBREAKABLE! Enter via the widget below.
I always get a kick out of comparing US and foreign book covers and seeing what publishers think will attract their readers and best communicate the story. For Elizabeth Norris’ UNRAVELING and the sequel UNBREAKABLE, you can see just how differently the books were presented to US and UK readers.
I’m a huge fan of the US covers for both books since I think they capture both the trippy sci-fi twist involving parallel universes while revealing the shifting mindset Janelle and Ben go through. Plus they are pretty 🙂
The UK covers also get the sci-fi message across, but the more literal interpretation of the title feels less sophisticated. I do like the UK cover of UNBREAKABLE significantly more than the UK cover of UNRAVELING, but neither comes close to the US covers for me. Which ones get your vote?
Don’t miss a stop on the UNBREAKABLE Tour!

Four months after Ben disappeared through the portal to his home universe, Janelle believes she’ll never see him again. Her world is still devastated, but life is finally starting to resume some kind of normalcy. Until Interverse Agent Taylor Barclay shows up. Somebody from an alternate universe is running a human trafficking ring, kidnapping people and selling them on different Earths—and Ben is the prime suspect. Now his family has been imprisoned and will be executed if Ben doesn’t turn himself over within five days.
And when Janelle learns that someone she cares about—someone from her own world—has become one of the missing, she knows that she has to help Barclay, regardless of the danger. Now Janelle has five days to track down the real culprit. Five days to locate the missing people before they’re lost forever. Five days to reunite with the boy who stole her heart. But as the clues begin to add up, Janelle realizes that she’s in way over her head—and that she may not have known Ben as well as she thought. Can she uncover the truth before everyone she cares about is killed?
