Good evening! Well, it’s Which Cover Wednesday again! For those of you who do not know, Which Cover Wednesday is a weekly meme I host. What happens is that I compare two different covers of a book and give my opinion of which wore its’ cover better. Feel free to give your opinion of these covers as well! Here are today’s contenders:
1.Switched by Amanda Hocking
This one’s an easy choice: the first cover. Not only does it have the protagonist front and centre (well, almost front and centre), it has a wonderful background, including a castle, some lovely flowers and nice font art. Also, the second cover doesn’t seem to relate to the story’s content.
2. Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow (English and Italian)
Again, first cover! As a cover, the Italian one looks great and really Gothic. The problem is that I don’t remember any angels in the novel, Strange Angels (weird right?). I think it’s actually a reference to a vampire’s appearance in the novel: beautiful as an angel. Plus, the first cover looks grungy, which is a better match for the novel.
3. The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller (English and German)
This time, my cover love goes to the second cover! The German cover takes in the fact that the book has to do with comics and overall nerdiness. If you look closely, you can see the comic pattern in the background.
4. Nicola and the Viscount by Meg Cabot
For this book, I’m going with the second cover. It’s not that I hate the first cover. It’s just that I like that there are two figures, representing Nicola and her love interest, on the second cover and not one. With that, the book seems to be more romantic than childish.
5. Ten Things We Did (and probably shouldn’t have) by Sarah Mlynowski
I end this Which Cover Wednesday by choosing the first cover of Ten Things We Did (and probably shouldn’t have). To be honest, this particular choice was a hard one for me to make. This is because both covers appear generic enough to apply to most Contemporary YA novels. At least to me they do. I went with the first one because I liked it better than the second one, which seemed to have less effort involved in its making.
What do you think of this week’s covers? Are they all awesome or are some more awesome than others? If you have any thoughts you’d like to share, or any suggestions for next week’s Which Cover Wednesday, please leave them in the comments section below! Take care and keep reading!
