Last week whilst reading The Overflowing Library's bookshelf tour I saw the spines of these on her shelf and they looked fab, but I couldn't read the titles or the author so I asked her about them.  She told me they were the old covers for The Midnighters series so I jumped on Amazon and was really exciting to find that I could still purchase the old covers. I had an anxious few days wait to see if they were really the old covers when they turned up as I've heard others mention they ordered a specific cover and received a different edition.  I much prefer these to the newer ones, especially when you see them end on and the clock face the spines make when they are all together.  Look here, I even took a photo for you:

The Midnighters Series spines with the pretty clock face.

Sally said...

Stolen is a fantastic book that I still think about and re-read sometimes.
Love the Scott Westerfield covers! Can't wait to hear your review of the books.

Gina @ My Precious said...

I've not heard of many of these books before. I LOVE how the midnight series book spines line up to make a clock. That's really cool.

Before I Fall is supposed to be fantastic.

Stolen sounds really good but I'm turned off by the prose being in letter form. Looking forward to reading your review.

Excellent haul! I like the sound of teh Father of Lies book... :-)

Aisle B said...

You're so right... the Midnighter series spines placed together creates the perfect effect. Kudos to the marketing/ design dept on that one.

Great IMM and wishing you a fabulous reading spin with these books.

Liz. R said...

I've been meaning to read Stolen for ages! I've seen so many good reviews for it. Enjoy all your great books :).

Christy @ReaderBee said...

Great mailbox! I have Before I Fall on loan from the library, and I can't wait to start it! Happy Reading!

Small Review said...

Ooh, I hope you enjoy your books! I love it when publishers put effort into making the spines pretty. Even better when it's a series and they go together like that.

abeautifulmadness said...

You got great books. I really want to read Stolen and Before I Fall. Have fun reading them!

Melissa (i swim for oceans) said...

Fantastic books this week! I love the sound of Father of Lies :)

Jenny said...

How much do I love that the clock face lines up on those book spines? Too cool! That's actually really impressive, it's hard to ensure that level of printing accuracy! Can't wait to see what you think of Father of Lies, I read that one a while back and thought it was interesting. I need to read Before I Fall too, so many books!

Miss Page-Turner said...

Really good! Stolen was a fanastic read, very different. And I still need to read Before I Fall since I loved Delirium so much. Can't wait for your review!
